Review: Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Hair products

Organix Extra Penetrating Moroccan Argan OilClaim: This rare formula has a centuries-old history of providing natural vitamin E and antioxidants while renewing your hair’s cell structure, sealing in shine, and creating lush softness.

Review: Meh. I got the shampoo, conditioner, and extra penetrating oil. I will say outright that the oil is actually quite nice and works well to keep my (dry, wavy, frizz-tending) hair under control and shiny. I’ve no real complaints with it, really.

The shampoo and conditioner, however… feh. While all three products smelled quite good, I was sad to discover that the shampoo and conditioner did not perform as well as their sibling, the oil. Both myself and my roommate, Vesica, tried them several times. 

At first, I did my usual lather-rinse-repeat routine.  After the first lather and rinse, the shampoo left my hair feeling overprocessed and stripped, but not clean! Instead, it left a greasy and sticky texture that was rather disgusting.

I had hoped that the conditioner would fix this, as I was h

After my hair was dry, it felt both greasy and dry at the same time. It was frizzy and dull and limp, which was amazing because my hair is very thick and fluffy, and never in my life before this had it ever been limp. 

orrified when I ran my fingers through my hair, as I was rinsing. Sadly, the conditioner did nothing to alleviate the nasty stickiness left behind by the shampoo. I even rinsed and repeated the conditioner twice, to no avail. 

I gave the shampoo and conditioner another chance: perhaps it was too strong to lather twice? I only lathered up once, and found to my dismay that the stripped/sticky feeling of before was not a fluke. I then conditioned twice, the second time not even rinsing the conditioner out but leaving most of it in as a sort of styling cream, in a desperate attempt to get it feeling soft and frizz-free like usual.

And still no joy. Doing this eliminated the sticky stripped feel, but it felt greasy and limp still. At this point, I handed it over to Vesica to see if it were the product, or simply my hair, that wasn’t working. She reports that it sucked just as hard for her as it had for me, so that’s 4 thumbs down to this hot mess!

Cost: $7.99 each! So I’m bitter and resentful!

Repurchase: OH HELL NO. The oil is ok, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again. I wouldn’t use the shampoo or conditioner again if they gave it to me for free. Or even if they PAID me to use it. 

Awesomesauce, decent, mediocre, or crapola: The oil I would consider “decent”. The shampoo and conditioner, however… I almost created a new rating for it: shit-tastic. But I decided that “crapola” was sufficient in addition to the above scathing review. This stuff sucks, yo.
