ar-gan OY-il

Indigenous to Morocco’s Atlas Mountain Region, this fairly-traded, organic Argan Oil is derived from the Argan Tree and is naturally rich in poly-unsaturated fatty acids, including Tocopherols (Vitamin E), and Omega-6 and Omega- 9 fatty acids, which are known for having restorative and protective properties on the skin.

SA'flow'r OY-il

Safflower Oil, extracted from the plant's seeds, consists primarily of linoleic acid triglycerides. It is a carrier oil, also considered hydrating to the skin and used in lotions and conditioners.

SEH-sah'-mee OY-il

Sesame Oil, which is a refined moisturizing oil derived from Sesame Seeds, has the same emollient properties as other nut and vegetable oils and is commonly used as a carrier oil for skin care products. Absorbs easily and softens the skin.

A-prih-kaht KUR-nuhl OY-il

Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin - similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.

Amy S: I don't see why not. It's great for dry hair and absorbs well so that it doesn't appear oily. Just don't use too much, a little goes a long way! I usually spray it onto my hand and rub it into just my dry ends to prevent using too much. Nov 3, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kari B: You're going to keep it in your hair. I tried using it in the morning and put it on before my other styling products and styling my hair. My hair was super soft but the smell was a little too strong for my taste for the day, I now put it on before bed to soften my hair for the next day. I enjoy the product a lot, just wish it was scentless. Sep 7, 2012
Reply to Kari Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Katie G: You apply it to freshly washed and towel dried hair. A few spritzes will do, then just brush it through to it gets applied evenly and you are done! Avoid directly spraying the roots, I usually spray some on my finger tips and gently disperse in that area to avoid it looking oily. Sep 7, 2012

keiko s: It appears that you do not need to rinse your hair, did not like to smell of the Sesame Oil in the ingredient. I personally prefer to use few drops of Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil applied after shampooed conditioned hair while wet to control unruly hair...enjoy Sep 8, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Susan F: I've only used it on my hair when it's wet. I sprayed it directly on my hair about 3-4 times and I have found it to weigh my hair down too much and looks greasy. Perhaps I'm using too much though. If you try it I would suggest spraying only one spray on your hand and then running it through your hair. Mar 2, 2013

Jessica N: This is a leave in treatment, I sometimes put it in my hair after I wash it so it will be shiny when I blow dry it, or I have put it on my hair after it dries to give my hair shine and smooth fly aways. You do not wash this out, be careful not to use too much it will make your hair stringy! Hope this helps answer your question! Jun 21, 2012

Marisa S: I put it in my hair after i washed it but before I dried it. I used 6 sprays the first time and I think it was too much, so I've been spraying 3-4 just on the ends. I dry it and then style and it seems to do well, it was a little oily with 6 sprays. Jul 1, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Anthony L: I checked the ingredients but cannot tell if any of the chemical names indicate silicones.

I will say this product remains oily after spraying. I did not try using a hair dryer or any other treatment after applying the oil concentrate. It stays too oily for my tastes, but it does work wonders on very dry hair like mine.

Marian R: I don't think so, but I'm not sure. I do know that it works!
My hair is already in better shape (not as dry) and it tames the "frizzies" without being heavy.

Molly H: Sorry, not sure but I really disliked this product and gave it to my mother. her hair is much thicker than mine, mine is fine, and she did not like it at all. to be honest i wish we could return it for something we'd actually use.. seems to make any hair greasy looking even if just use a limited amount or spray in hands and rub together prior to applying to your ends. I would never recommend it. May 20, 2014

I love Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Shampoo and Conditioner and hoped the Smoothing Hair Oil would keep my hair smooth and frizz-free between shampoos while adding moisture to my very dry hair. While it added some moisture without being heavy, it did not result in smoothing the manageability of my hair. Sep 20, 2012
