My Super-duper dry hair cure

A few years back decided that packet-dying my hair all sorts of colours was a brilliant idea, that was, until I killed my hair and had to have it all chopped off. It took me almost 2 years to get it back to it's lovely natural blonde colour. But, alas, I finally did it. I swore to myself to never packed-dye it again, because it caused more trouble than it was worth.
However, about a month back, I was fairly poor and my hair was getting darker, so I thought 'hey, one time won't hurt!' It did. Now, I dread washing my hair as it becomes so dry and so knotty it looks as if I have dreadlocks!! That was until I found the little gem also known as 'Argan Oil' which sorted my dry hair right out. 
Applying it to towel-dry hair after washing it, it makes my hair feels so silky and smooth. It also smells delicious!

Now, I was in Boots and there was so much choice of brands and prices I had no idea which to go for. However, Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on all hair products, so I decided to get the brand above which cost £11.99 for 100ml. And I also bought 2 of the Lee Stafford Argan oil pictured below. Purely because my mum wanted a bottle as she swears by it. 
I have now tried out both Argan oils and can 100% say I much prefer the Lee Stafford, even though it was a massive £12.99 for 50ml! The Oil pictured above doesn't have a particular smell, and didn't feel as silky in my hair. However the Lee Stafford just makes me smile every time I smell it (I know I need a life!!)

So, if you're having problems with dry and knotty hair, especially dry hair, I say Argan Oil is a very suitable and helpful product. It may seem quite expensive for such a little amount, but you only need a couple of squirts each time you use it and the 50ml bottle seems to last forever!


  1. nice my thread ... i like it ...


  2. i need exactly the opposite! My hair is too oily and have to wash it nearly everyday! XX Love your blog, I follow you!!

  4. I'm actually planning to do a post about this on my blog, but another (& probably cheaper alternative) is coconut oil. I've been using it for months now- on my hair, my skin, cuticles, etc. I'm so pleased! I can't stop telling everyone how much I love this product. Have you ever tried it?
