This is the sample tjoob of Agadir Argan Hair Oil that Eliz from Tink's Mom gave me. Do you think I liked it?

Elizabeth from Tink’s Mom recently alerted me to the heretofore undiscovered wonders of Moroccan argan oil for hair. At BlogHer 2009, she gave me a packet of this Agadir Oil to try out and I sucked that puppy dry. I ordered a new bottle of the Agadir Hair Oil from Amazon, but was ultimately too impatient to wait for it to get here. I looked around for a place to buy the Agadir brand around here, but for some reason this was impossible. I had to go with a different brand of the same oil in the meantime, but more on that later. For now, let me tell you why argan oil–any brand of it–is so fantastic.

First of all, I don’t really know how it works. You just put a small amount in your hand and distribute it evenly throughout your hair when it’s still wet, much as you might use a silicon serum. Then, somehow, it magically makes your hair dry faster, like I said, I’m not really clear on how this works but here’s my hypothesis: it seals up the hair shaft, locking in the moisture along with it, which makes your hair silky soft and also makes it easier and faster to dry, because some of that water from the shower is actually inside of your hair now. I don’t know, it’s crazy, but it’s true.

So if you round-brush your hair like I do, this will make it smoother and silkier immediately. No waiting around. It’s like magic. The oil is a conditioning treatment and a styling product all in one. That’s right–I just put a little argan oil into my hair and that’s it, nothing else! Pretty awesome.

I’m not sure how to express to you people what a miracle this stuff is. Well, yes I do: I have two more posts on the topic of argan oil this week. Which brand is the best? I don’t think it really matters, honestly–one is slightly more expensive than the other, but then it appears to be easier to find in more areas, so whichever one appeals to you is good. But I have even MORE to say about argan oil and argan oil related products later this week, so please stay tuned.

    Anna, is this just straight argan oil? Any other oils/essential oils/additives added to this? Intriguing.

    Hmm, I don’t know, actually. I never looked at the ingredients. I just looked on Amazon and it looks like they have some kind of Vitamin E base or something . . . so maybe not 100% Argan oil. I’ve used this one and the Moroccan Oil brand and they are more or less indistinguishable from one another.

    Thanks, this is fascinating. I have a tiny little side business making organic soap and toiletries – some of my suppliers carry argan oil but I hadn’t heard much about it. Will definitely pick some up with my next order.
