Ah, Argan Oil. It’s been doing the rounds so much in recent years that I’ve started losing interest to be honest. Luckily curiosity did get the better of me and I tried out Inoar Argan Oil a couple of days ago – I’m very happy with the discovery indeed, here’s more info about it.
The first thing I do when I open any hair product is smell it. I did it a couple of months ago in front of one of my oldest friends and she burst out laughing, saying I used to be obsessed with hair product smells from our school days. So I am, apparently. Inoar Argan Oil passes the sniff test – it’s a sweet, slightly powdery smell that manages to be fresh at the same time.
The texture of Inoar Argan Oil is thick and gloopy – it looks almost gel-like when you pour it out of the bottle, and then becomes silky as soon as you rub it between your palms.
What’s very impressive about this particular oil is that the first ingredient is actually Argan oil – I’ve never seen that with any other hair oil. Inoar claims that it contains 9% Argan oil, and that it’s the highest percentage on the market. Aside from Argan oil there’s a handful of silicones and olive oil included too, the silicones being crucial for silky, frizz-free hair.
I’m sure by now you know how to use hair oils – pour a couple of drops into your hand, and work it into damp or dry ends. I prefer using oils on damp hair, as they provide some extra heat protection and I’m less likely to get heaviness or oiliness from it. How I most like to use Inoar Argan oil specifically is to apply a teaspoonful (or two) or so to my hair and scalp about 10 minutes before I wish it. After two shampoos hair feels then feels luxuriously smooth and somehow more dense in a good way. It takes care of static and flyaway hairs, but it doesn’t make it heavy or oily (I have a lot of hair, but the texture is fine and it needs daily shampooing).

PS – I was going to crit the bottle for not having a pump, but because of how thick the liquid is it works surprisingly well – it comes out really slowly so chances of overshooting are minimal. But a pump would possibly still be better if I could have things my way.
