REVIEW: Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum
Lately I have been obsessing over my hair. It has gotten really long and healthy so I am more prone to play with it using heat styling and other variations of styling without the guilt. Even though I am using heat and other styling techniques I am using all sorts of treatments and serums to help keep it long and healthy. I have been LOVING the Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum.
Josie Maran is known for her Argan Oil and a lot of people use her basic Argan Oil in their hair, which is okay for some people but I find it is too much for my thick head of fine hair. She developed this hair serum because all of the same reasons I listed above: heat and styling, but also she had hair coloring quite a bit. This hair serum is nice and silky (sort of like the text of CHI Silk Infusion). It has an unprecedented amount of argan oil in the serum itself, so you are still getting all the benefits of her traditional oil but it is targeted specifically for the hair.
The Argan Oil Hair Serum provides frizz control instant shine, and long-term rejuvenation. It smells great, scented with geranium and bergamot fruit oils. It is a nice light, never-greasy formula. It sinks into the hair shaft to seal split ends and moisturize. Not only does it do all of these great things, it is filled with an abundance of antioxidants, vitamin e, essential fatty acids, and of course argan oil.
I use this after I shower on towel dried hair. I dispense 1-2 pumps into my hand and rub them together to warm up the product. I bend and flip my hair over and start working the product into the hair starting at my ends and work my way up mid-way. (My ends tend to split easily and I feel that this product has really helped with this.) I avoid getting near my scalp because I have naturally oily hair and I don't want to accentuate that. I then style my hair as usual.
I will say that I love the pump on this product. It is easy to use and has great control. If you push the dispenser down halfway it gives you half the amount of a full pump. I hope that makes sense. The pumps that force you to take a whole pump of product really bother me because I hate to be wasteful so being able to get 1/4 or 1/2 of a regular pump really excites me. The photo below displays the amount of product dispensed with a full pump. My hair is fairly long and 2 full pumps is more than enough to get my entire head of hair.
The two pictures displayed below are ones I took after I started using this product. I have shiny, healthy looking hair most of the time but in my opinion these photos jump out as being REALLY beautiful hair shots. I love that the shine created looks moisturized but not oily--which is exactly the effect I find the Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum to provide.
The Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum retails for $30 for 2 fl oz of product and can be found at josiemarancosmetics.com as well as anywhere else that Josie Maran products are sold. It has an average price tag to other products similar on the market. I think it is wonderful and I completely recommend this hair serum; it gets 5 out of 5 stars. It makes me want to try more and more hair stuff from her line. like the Hot Oil Self-Heating Treatment or the Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist Texture Volume & Moisture. I would love if she developed a set of shampoo and conditioner. (hint, hint) lol
