Pure argan oil


I have always had very dry, dull hair and lately I have been experimenting with hair oils to see if it can sort my hair out and make it softer/shinier. So when I was contacted by the people at Mevrea to test out their pure argan oil, I was excited to try it!

When the sample arrived I was a bit confused because it came in roller ball form and I wanted to use it on my hair. I knew that because it's pure argan oil that I could also use it on my skin, so I started to roller ball it onto my elbows and knees to see if it made my skin soft but after reading through the leaflet that came with the sample, I saw it could be used as a pre-shampoo treatment and decided to start using it in that way instead.

I started to apply this onto my hair around an hour before washing it to give it a chance to soak in. I then washed, dried and styled my hair as I normally would. My hair felt softer but I didn't see a massive difference. I would be more interested to see how this works on my hair with continuous use to see if I noticed any bigger changes to my hair and how it feels.

I also tried applying this to dry hair; either through the ends hoping to add shine or running a teeny amount over my hair to try and tackle my crazy fly aways. I noticed you need to use a very light hand when applying it to dry hair and need to use the tiniest amount otherwise you're left with incredibly greasy looking hair (although this is a problem with almost all hair oils).

Have you tried pure argan oil?

  5. I use Argan Oil which you can get in Superdrug or Boots for around £10 for 100ml and I adore it. It is a staple in my routine now and my hair looks miles better than it used too!

    1. It really was thrown off at first but if I'm just applying it to my hair as a treatment and not worried about applying too much then it's okay.

  9. I haven't tried any Argan oil now but I'm looking to pick some up as the Winter weather is wrecking my hair! The rollerball packaging of this doesn't look like the most practical though. Thanks for sending your link in the #bbloggers chat yesterday :) xx

    1. I've always had such dry hair and I straighten it a lot too which doesn't help.. So I'm always looking out for ANYTHING that might help it in any way.

    1. I'd be interested to see what difference it makes (if any) with regular use. I'm on my 3rd or 4th try with this sample and probably have enough for one more use out of it (it was 15ml).

  11. interesting I have heard lots of good things about Aragan oil and always wondered if it really works. I currently use a hair 'lotion' that smells like coconut yum but I think the oil would be a more natural choice, so will have to try it now too!

    Thank your for you kind comments on our blog, following you back! Looking forward to more great posts from you :)

    Stay pretty xo

    1. I'm interested in try different ones. I don't think I should base my opinion of them just based on this one. I've tried the VO5 oil aswell but didn't use it as a pre-shampoo type treatment.
