~~~~~~~ ABOUT ARGAN OIL ~~~~~
Argan oil comes from the nut of the argan tree grown in Morocco. In Morocco it s used to dip bread, to drip over foods such as couscous as well as a multi purpose beauty product.
The nuts are so tasty that goats climb the trees to eat them. Argan is also grown in China but it was Morocco where the benefits for skin and hair were used by the Berber women particularly and today argan is recognised as being a fabulous multi purpose oil.
Be aware though that not all products that claim to be argan oil are argan oil as many have just a small amount of this precious oil.
Dr Organic has argan as the top ingredient in the list so is argan oil plus some extra ingredients added for benefit not as fillers

~~~~~~~~~MY EXPERIENCE AND VIEWS ~~~~~~
I love this product and use it after washing and conditioning my hair on wet hair before drying it. I also use it between shampoos an my hair at night as my hair is very dry and quite naturally curly. I apply this to my hair before I go to bed and in the morning it has all been absorbed and my hair is not at all greasy but looks healthy and smooth.
I have been making a real effort not to wash my hair as often as I used to. I use to wash it daily and found I was forever drying and trying to tame it. Now I wash it twice a week or every four days and use this a couple of times on my hair in between I apply it to my hair and not to my scalp and brush it with a tangle teaser brush to spread it through evenly. My hair has been in much better condition since using this regime and my scalp hasn’t had eczema so much either or been as itchy.
This argan product is rich in the extracts of other oils from Africa including kukui seed oil, moringa seed oil, sacha inchi seed oil. Desite being full of all these rich oils this serum doesn’t feel heavy at all and it is absorbed into my hair very quickly.
Other oils are in this serum for their gorgeous fragrances and these ones include the clove, orange fruit extract, geranium oil, lemon peel oil, patchouli oil, rosewood oil, wild mint oil, mandarin peel oil, vanilla fruit extract which combine to smell almost like a perfume in my opinion. If you don’t like the smell of cloves and Christmas spices then it might not appeal as much to you but I love it.
The argan oil is particularly good for skin and hair because it is a rich source of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids and being a natural oil it is easily absorbed into the skin and hair.
This is a product designed for hair but I see no reason why you cannot use it as a massage oil for the body. I always rub my hands over my arms after applying this to my hair to get the most benefit from the oil and of course there is always some still that soaks into my hands.
This product claims to de tangle hair, eliminate frizz as well as nourish and protect the hair from drying and heat and life generally and it also makes the hair nice and shiny and healthy looking too.
This product has the Organic Certified symbol on the box and is cruelty free .
It comes in a brown and white box which is bigger than the bottle inside . It has two compartments in the box so looks like it should have two of the bottles in the box. The box is full of product information and has a Moroccan gold decoration on one side of the box. The bottle inside is frosted glass with a push pump dispenser which is covered with a clear plastic lid.
I found that one push of the pump gave me sufficient each time for my hair which though short is very thick and very thirsty for this oil serum. The bottle hold 100 ml and has lasted me for over a year using other products in between.
~~~~~~~ BUYING THIS ~~~~~~
My one was a free trial but this sells for £15.49 in Holland & Barratt and only comes in the one size 100 ml. At present any of the Dr Organic products including this are buy one get one half price so I will be replacing mine next week when I go into Derby as it is by far the best hair product that I have used recently. Argan oil works just as well but doesn’t have the lovely smell and is much the same price.
~~~~~ RECOMMENDED? ~~~~~~~
Well I think it is obvious that I do recommend this as I love it. If you are doubtful as to whether you might like the smell why not ask if you can smell it in the shop. You won’t have to dispense any as the lid will screw off and you can sniff the contents then.
