Argan oil is well known to revitalize dry and frizzy hair among a host of other health benefits. Additionally, you can apply the treatment before or after washing the hair.

Use the treatment before shampooing, hair color application, blow drying, styling, or curling. Apply a few drops on your hair before swimming and to protect the hair against sun damage.

Product Effectiveness

Agadir Argan oil hair treatment is a 100 percent certified and pure argan oil product intended for hair treatment.

The product claims to soften tresses, encourage hair growth, and reduce drying time for wet hair.

It is a leave-in moisturizer with various application techniques and is best used for the treatment of strands and not a mane/scalp treatment.

The majority of Agadir Argan oil treatment users loved the results, even those with coarse hair.

The hair of the users showed improved texture and shine for those who used the product consistently.

However, some customers used the product as a conditioner instead of a leave-in treatment. All in all, they seemed to be happy with the results.

Sadly, other people felt cheated with the addition of silicone in the product. Silicone does not work well for women with fine and light colored locks.

However, those with dark and coarse hair types reported in the product's favor when reviewing effectiveness. For best results, use the product as recommended.

Customer Satisfaction

Based on the users’ reviews, Argan oil treatment is a life saver. According to users, the product works best on wet and dark coarse hair.

When used as a conditioner, it detangles the hair making it easy to comb. Unlike other Argan oil or different hair treatment options, this particular argan hair makes the hair stronger, shinier, and softer.

Some of the users loved the fragrance of the oil as well. They liked this product.

Some women felt the perfume was too strong and the product was too expensive.

Others distrusted the claims that the product was entirely 100 percent natural.

The majority of the product users would re-purchase the product in the future.

Some have used the leave-in treatment for as long as five years. However, others found the product effective but said they'd rather buy an alternative hair oil treatment option because of issues such as the fragrance and/or price.

Final Thoughts

The leave-in treatment has a blend of ingredients that works magic on the hair and contains no alcohol. Despite its high price, few other products matched the effectiveness. It is a product most hairdressers and experts would recommend.

However, the product is not ideal for people with fine and light hair. Silicone causes the hair to become oily and wears it down.

Silicone is known to cause heavy and waxy build up. Dark and coarse hair will not suffer that fate.

Use the product consistently and as directed for the best results.
