Argan Dew Miraculous Moroccan Argan Oil*

I recently received these free samples from Argan Dew and I couldn't wait to try them. I received three 10ml samples of the Replenishing Hair Mask and three 3.5ml samples of the Miraculous Argan Oil.  I was really interested to see how each treatment would leave my hair, as I had only tried one hair oil before (the L'oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil) therefore I'm quite new to this kind of formula. Plus, the idea of putting oil on my hair when I suffer from oily hair anyway didn't really appeal to me - however, it's not as toe-curling as you may think!

What I like about Argan Dew (apart from the fact that they don't test on animals) is that they use natural products; they use one of the world's richest and rarest natural oils that can be found in the Argan nut, which grows in Morocco. It claims to prevent skin and hair damage, as well as keeping it moisturised and healthy. Described as being "nature's conditioner" these products help restore the natural elasticity of the hair and leave it looking shiny and feeling hydrated.

Replenishing Hair Mask

I was excited to use this as I love a good hair mask (especially as this one uses natural products). As soon as I opened the sachet, I noticed it had a similar consistency to a conditioner; thick and creamy. I used the full 10ml that was provided, as it seemed like a generous amount and it was enough to provide my hair with (as my hair is quite thick and long). The smell of the mask was very natural; it didn't have any chemical smells like some masks do - it had an almost 'nutty' smell (which makes sense as the main ingredient is extracted from the argan nut!) 

After shampooing, I massaged the mask into my hair, starting from the ends and working my way up to my roots. I was nervous about putting it in my roots, but it turned out to not be a problem. I left it on for five minutes before rinsing off and I could feel the benefit already, similar to how your hair feels after using a conditioner. After getting out the shower, my hair was easier to comb through and it was smelling nice and fresh.

After blowdrying my hair, I immediately noticed the shine and the soft feel it had. The next day, my hair was easy to brush through and it still appeared shiny and felt soft. My roots also felt surprisingly soft and 'clean' - they didn't feel oily, which I was expecting as I had massaged the mask into my roots after all.

My sister has long, thick hair and half of it is dip-dyed, so she was keen to try the mask to repair her dry ends. She told me that she loved the overall result; her hair felt much softer and didn't look as damaged, which she was pleased about.

Miraculous Hair Oil

I actually preferred the smell of the hair oil compared to the mask and this equally left my hair feeling soft. I only used half of the 3.5ml sachet, so it shows that you don't need a lot of the oil for it to benefit your hair. I used it when I got out of the shower before blowdrying my hair, as it isn't necessary to have to rinse it off. The oil is a thick, sticky consistency (a bit like syrup) but as soon as you start working it through your hair, it blends in nicely and provides your hair with plenty of nourishment. My hair felt soft and looked shiny and I also found that I didn't have as many fly-aways as I normally do, so the oil must have flattened them down and prevented any frizz.

Overall, there must be something special in Argan oil that helps protect and restore your hair, improving its appearance and texture. The company is based in Israel so their products take maybe a week or more to arrive, but they make sure to ship them quickly and get them overseas as soon as possible. You can request free samples on their website, which I recommend doing as the products are quite expensive, so it's best to try them out first like I did. I really like these products though; I love the way my hair felt and also the smell is lovely!

Have you tried these products? If so, what do you think?
