INOAR Extreme Premium Oil Review

I’ve been using INOAR’s new hair oil, Extreme Premium Oil, for a couple of weeks and I am really enjoying it. It’s lightweight, non-greasy and smells amazing. It is silicone based and contains an array of oils that calms frizz, nourishes dry and damaged hair, treats split ends and gives brilliant shine. The oils include argan, macadamia and rose imperial oil. What makes this oil extra special is that it contains Myrrh. Myrrh is known for its healing powers and its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic and astringent benefits. As I’ve mentioned, it’s very lightweight so it is perfect for all hair types and it does not weigh your hair down. A drop of this oil will be enough to calm the frizzies and the smooth dry ends. I use a bit more as my hair is very dry (highlights and natural curls will do that). I apply two pumps to damp hair before I apply any styling products. The result is defined, smooth and shiny curls. It also works like a charm when I need extra help to control frizz on dry hair. The results on Cara’s curls are fantastic. Her hair isn’t as dry as mine so I only use a drop on hers. My little girl’s locks form perfectly and the shine of her naturally blonde hair is out of this world. I wish I could get my highlights to look like that. Mom is very envious! I really like this luxuriously packaged oil and I highly recommend it. Suggested Retail price: R545.00 (50ml). INOAR Extreme Premium Oil is available exclusively at fine salons and spas nationwide.

VO5 Miracle Concentrate Review

I have fine curly hair (LOTS of it!) that I have not always been too kind to: highlights, washing & styling every day, and using supermarket products. I have finally found the perfect styling products: lekker cheap leave-in conditioner and styling mousse, but there are always some locks that still need some defining… I’ve tried gel, wax, silicone, the works. My hair either looks dirty or the curls become hard and stiff. I did a post on Argan Oil last month and my skin loves it. It’s just too expensive to use for my hair on a daily basis. Then I saw VO5’s Miracle Concentrate… with Argan Oil! And it’s only 46 bucks at Clicks. It’s an intensive leave-in treatment. They say you can apply it to your wet hair, but that didn’t work for me. I use a few drops on my dry, styled hair to smooth the ends and any frizzy bits. And it does a good job. Now I don’t have a clue what all the ingredients are (except for the Argan Oil), but I do know it contains a form of silicone. Now my hairdresser told me to steer away from silicone-based products… something about cuticles and build-up, ag I dunno. But if I hear of anything that may work for these locks, I’m going to try it. What I love about this product: Firstly the price of course. It comes with a handy dropper, so you have control over the amount of product you use. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your hands making you run to the basin immediately (like some of...

The magic that is Argan Oil

After all the hype about hair care products that contain Argan Oil, I thought I’d read up a bit. Wikipedia says that “Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania Spinosa L.), endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties”. After reading about the benefits for your skin, and how little of the oil actually is in some of the products out there, I decided to search for the oil itself. I have been using it on my face every night for over a week, and I am very happy with the results. My skin feels smooth and a lot less dry. This may just be my saving grace after this hellish winter. I have read claims that it works miracles on wrinkles, but that remains to be seen. We can only hope! I use about 7 drops on my face, so the 20ml bottle will last a while. I am too stingy to use it on my hair undiluted, so I’ll be mixing it with some coconut oil to use as a treatment. My hair is also in serious need of some TLC. I got my Botanica Argan Oil from http://www.wellnesswarehouse.co.za for...
