My hair stylist at my trial actually told me about Moroccan/Argan oil, and now I’m really into it.  I got a bottle at Ulta (“One ‘N Only” brand, not the Moroccan Oil brand from Sephora) for pretty cheap, and I use it in my hair almost every day.  I have long, highlighted hair that’s been through a lot of bleaching, and putting a little bit in my hair before I blow dry it makes it silky, shiny, and smooth.

I found it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/One-Only-Argan-Oil-Treatment/dp/B002PR2GLM

Some reviewers said it isn’t 100% Argan/Moroccan oil, which I guess is why it’s cheaper, but it works great for me.  Not sure about the effects on the skin, I just use it in my hair.

I use Moroccan Oil on my hair and it’s great! You only have to use a little bit, but it makes your hair shiny, frizz free and feel overall great. You can get it at salons.

@bimba: I like to use it right out of the shower but its not possible to repair split ends, the oil just helps them bind together they are still broken though

@FutureMrsChaney: Is right, nothing will repair split ends. Once they are split they are split.

I use the Morrocan Oil shampoo and conditioner and it does make my hair nice and soft and, as an added bonus, it smells great.  But there is only a small amount of actual argan oil in it.  It does contain silicone, so your hair will feel slick and heavy when wet and will take forever to dry.

One time while blow drying my hair, I got a strand of wet hair in my eyes and it burned like hell.  After that I googled the ingredients and next to the silicone, there are other not so great things in it.  So I will probably switch to a different every day shampoo and conditioner. But I might try the Morrocan Oil oil to smooth and moisturize the tips.

@bimba: Its good to use to protect your hair if you flat iron but if you have oily hair I would not suggest using it lol. I have a lot of clients who love it and some who hate it. It really has to do with your hair type.

@bimba: I just started using Agradir’s Argan oil a few days ago and have noticed a difference in my hair. I swim alot so my hair has devolved into a frizzy, dry untameable mess. I put a few drops in my hair right after I wash and I have seen a slight difference in my hair – it’s a bit shinier, smoother and feels hyrdated. We’ve also had a few humid and rainy days and I think it’s helped me avoid the poodle look.

I’m not sure if it’s the liquid gold that it’s touted to be, but it certainly smells nice and seems to be a lighter feeling, more natural version of Frizz-Ease.

This is what I bought…: http://www.amazon.com/Agadir-Argan-Oil-Treatment-4-Ounce/dp/B001U9M2EW/ref=pd_sbs_bt_1

@bimba: I would actually suggest what I use and it works amazingly to get my hair perfect for the wedding. Its made by Catwalk it works great then I would get the argan and do an over nite treatment with it maybe once a week. You wouldnt want greasey hair! lol

Thanks for the reminder, this product does work very well. My hair is long and wavy/curly and has been very dry lately so I’m pulling this baby out of the medicine cabinet. 🙂 It is quite pricey but you need a TINY amount so it will last a while. I got mine at Beauty Brands & I have seen it at Ulta and other stores.
