Review: Babyliss Pro Argan Oil


After religiously using this hair oil for over 6 months I thought it was about time I did a little review on it and shared it's wonders with you all. Using oils in hair care, in particular Moroccan oil and argan oil, has taken the beauty world by storm in the past few months and if it's something that you haven't tried yet then why not? If you're using the right one and the right amount then oil is reaaally good for adding moisture to those dry and brittle ends that are often a problem with long or over processed hair.
 

This hair oil treatment from Babyliss was my very first dip into the realm of argan oils and I've not looked back since! After loving this one so much I decided to try out alternatives from other brands to see how they faired in comparison but this is the one that I have always come back to. It's not a particularly high end brand and it's by no means top of the list in the highest rated hair oils, and it isn't very costly either - it's just a really good quality and good value for money helping hand for my dry ends. I bought this from eBay back in May of this year following a recommendation from Kayleigh (Couture Girl) and the seller that I both bought this 100ml bottle from can be found here: link. At the time I purchased this oil it cost me £14.58 and it has now been reduced to £13.14 which is a really good price for the amount of product and and the quality (especially when compared to other brands such as the original Moroccan Oil which will set you back a similar price for a quarter of the amount of product), BUT even better than this, I have since seen this same product on Beauty Bay for just £10.95 with free delivery (link) so snap it up from here if you're interested!
 
As you can hopefully tell from the pictures I am not even a quarter of the way through this bottle and it has been used after every wash (with a couple of exceptions) for six months, so I thankfully won't be running out of this any time soon as a little bit goes a really long way. One thing I'm not keen on is the dispenser for this bottle as it makes it quite easy to pour out too much product which leads to wastage sometimes and it's always best to start with a little amount and add more if necessary - you can't take it away once it's on your hair. I add the amount shown below through the midlengths and ends of my hair after it has been towel dried - my hair is really long and thick and this amount is plenty enough for me even at my hair's most unruly state!
 
 
 
Described as a 'nourishing oil treatment' this multi-purpose oil is ideal for all hair types and can be used to style, smooth, condition, tame and treat dry and damaged hair. Although I have spotted some silicone based ingredients on the ingredient list (which some people prefer to steer clear of), this is alcohol free and absorbs almost instantly into the hair leaving it shiny but not greasy. Unlike some similar oils this does not leave a residue on your hair; it is completely absorbed. This oil feels really luxurious to use and it smells gorgeous too! It can be used to protect from heat damage and protects and strengthens the hair which in turn reduces the amount of split ends and frizziness.
 
My last hair cut was back in May (yes, criminal, I know) and that is the same time that I began using this product. Yesterday, I got my hair cut for the first time in 6 months and I only made that decision because I was examining my hair and noticed my very first split end since having it cut all that time ago. I don't know about you but lasting six months without a hair cut and only discovering one split end at the end of it is pretty impressive to me. In almost 20 years of life my hair has never managed to last that long without being cut before (I am always one for regular trims) and I put this down to two factors: regular use of this hair oil and a reduction in use of heat tools. This oil is now a staple product in my hair care routine and it always leaves my hair feeling extra conditioned, soft and smooth. It does not only benefit the hair externally as a quick fix, but actually penetrates the hair and really nourishes my locks for a silky smooth finish.

  7. Hey beautiful! thank you so much for this review, it's quite complete and yes, we've been hearing about argan oil for months, but not everybody write their impressions with such detail. anyway, I think that 6 months is enough time to have seen the results of this products, and if your hair looked good after 6 months of your last hair cut... I think it's time to give argan oil an oportunity!
    pd: if you have a moment please leave a coment on the newest post of my blog, I need it to win a competition, thank you in advance
