How good is this for colour treated hair?

After my unsuccessful experience with the Go Blonder John Frieda range, I decided to start testing this Argania range from Boots that I was kindly sent for a review.

about
Argania hair oil are made in New Zealand by mixing certified organic aragan oil, almond, jojoba, macadamia and evening primrose oils and Vitamin E. This treatment is to leave the hair silky smooth with a healthy shine.

Included in my lovely package was Argania Moisture Repair Shampoo · Argania Moisture Repair Conditioner · Argania Organic Moroccan Argan Hair Oil Light

I was asked what my hair type at the moment is because with the Argania Hair Oil there are two types available all hair types & light coloured & fine hair with it being heavily coloured with hair dye & bleach of course I went with the latter.

the products

  • Argania Moisture Repair Shampoo : Okay Laa on a broken record moment here - I don't like shampoo, I really try to avoid it when possible. No shampoo feels good for me. I may need to try a pre-poo again so the hair doesn't feel so dry and stripped of it's moisture. As I'm trying to hold back on heat this might be a wise idea. Knowing how to read ingredients are important. Ingredients are listed in order of their proportion in the product, within this shampoo the top 5 are :- Water,  Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocoamide DEA, Cocamidopropyl betaine & Lauryl Glucoside. Argan Oil is the 6th listed property in this, the main reason I dislike shampoo it's due to sulfates but some are not as bad as others but it's good to know your sulfates and cones. I cannot give a 100% review on this as me and shampoo are solid enemies after the pre-poo routine I will revisit the review for it. [purchase] £7.99
  • Argania Moisture Repair Conditioner : The sweet smell is relaxing and uplifting, the repair range is aimed to hydrate damaged hair. Listing the 5 top ingredients in order :- Water, Glycerin, Sweet Almond Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol & Behentrimonium methosulfate (and) Butylene glycol with Argan Oil once again being the 6th (or 7th depending how you look at it) property. BMSulfate is a good one for girls with curly hair especially as it's one of the mildest detangling ingredients and not to mention it's a good property to condition hair.  [see why I say it's important to research your sulfates] Do I feel it hydrates my hair? My hair always seems to need more in it's routine I cannot just shampoo & condition. After it's rinsed it's not dry but still needs more. [purchase] £7.99
  • Argania Organic Moroccan Argan Hair Oil Light : The light oil is targeted for blonde, silver, lightened & fine hair. Good for mine as it controls frizz and fly aways. I've noticed my hair ends especially have got more prone to frizz and dryness since the ombre so it's important to keep it hydrated. Most oils are greasy but I enjoy that this one isn't overly greasy and doesn't weigh the hair down + ( this can be used to rub on the skin after so nothing goes to waste )! This is meant to extend the life of the coloured treated hair which ok it's one of my fears as sometimes I do feel products can destroy a colour so far this hasn't. It can be used in damp or dry hair so it's great for daily use. I prefer oils in the hair than cream as the oil is a lot lighter, gives a nice sheen! I have been using this to grease the scalp also as it says its soothing and conditioning for the scalp. Cuts my hair products down.  [purchase] £14.99

Maybe we need some more time together.
Did I mention that Argania products are not tested on animals. Cruelty Free!

  3. I have fine, curly hair & lots of it. Prone to the halo-frizz and in high humidity, it can get knotty and curls loose all definition. I bought the moisture repair shampoo & conditioner and the light version of the oil....and I love it, so far! Noticed a smoothing effect from first use. Curls are more manageable and I'm not having to re-apply the oil as you would need to with some serums to tame frizz throughout the day. I was fortunate enough to carry out the humidity test on my recent trip to the Caribbean...my hair looked pretty much the same at the end of the day as it did in the morning -result! There was a little frizz, but not enough to faf over it.
    Argan oil seems to be all the rage right now and these products are well worth a try, especially as they're a fraction of the cost of other leading brands. The biggest pro for me is that they're not tested on animals :)
    I have tried gazzilions of hair products (don't want to even think about the money wasted) and no doubt there'll be a new discovery soon to make your hair perfect (& I'll fall for all that rubbish it says on the packaging too :() but for now, I'm sticking to Argania.
