Review - Argan Oil Hair Mask

Argan Oil Hydrating Hair Mask - Intensive conditioning treatment 
with Moroccan Argan oil extract.

~Blurb from the website about the product~


"Argan Oil Hair Mask is enriched with proteins and Keratin and infused with Argan Oil which is derived from the Moroccan Argan Tree. Its moisturizing properties help to revive and nourish dry and damaged hair. Argan Oil Hair Mask is an intensive treatment that helps rebuild strength and restore elasticity. Argan Oil Hair Mask is specially formulated to help improve texture and manageability, leaving hair looking healthy and shiny and can be used on all hair types" 

So i picked this item up from my local Home Bargains store (UK store), thinking it would be a decent dupe for the proper Moroccan oil. Now i haven't actually tried the proper stuff so i cant comment on the likeness of it. However, i put the mask on and because my hair is SO thick and pretty long i put a good whack of it on and left it for a little under and hour. The mask was very thick/creamy and when left or a long time, went kind of cakey. It was quite difficult to wash it all out because of how thick it went. I let my hair dry naturally like i usually do and have to say my hair was a lot softer and shinier for it. So, the product isn't great but it does a good job of conditioning the hair but not a whole lot more than any normal conditioner. 

The tub however i did not like at all. Its tricky to get all the product out because of the shape of it and it doesn't look particularly great either. 

All in all I'd give this product a 3 out of 10
I don't think ill be repurchasing.


I hope you found this review helpful and id love to hear your thoughts!

I'm also going to make sure i purchase at least one new item of makeup and one beauty product every month! So here you have it the end of poor make up and the start of improvement :)
