REVIEW!!! One and Only Argan Oil Products!!!

Hello, ladies. I was sitting here about to stress myself out about grad school work, when I realized that I need to do this review that I promised you all. So, here we go: this review will be a 3-in-1.

The first product I purchased was the One and Only Argan Oil Oil Treatment.
It looks like this:


I use this product only when my hair is WET. I apply a small amount in the palm of my hands and apply it to naked, wet hair. This product makes my wet hair so very shiny. With the smallest, I can cover my entire head. I usually allow my hair to airdry with this product in, which gives me the best results. Hood-drying with this product does not produce as great of results as airdrying. When my hair is dry, it is very light, flowy and EXTREMELY SOFT! Even though this product set me back 9.99 plus tax, I am nowhere near running out, and I have had this product for almost three months. I am NOT TOUCHING THE LABEL yet. Awesome!!!I have no cons.I give this product FIVE STARS!

The next One and Only Argan Oil product is the Spray Treatment.
I only use this product on DRY hair. I spray this product on flexi rods sets, braid outs, buns, straight styles, etc. This spray adds extra shine to my hair immediately. Only a couple of sprays go a long way. I do not apply direct heat after applying this spray. This oil spray DOES NOT weigh my hair down. My hair is consistently light. It is never greasy. It is never oily. This product will replace any oil sheen and no-heat serum I have. This product also set me back 9.99 plus tax. I have no cons. This product gets FIVE STARS from me!
 
 
 The last One and Only Argan Oil product is the Styling Cream.
 I use this product on both WET and DRY hair. On wet hair, I use this product as a leave in. I will divide my hair into two sections and coat my hair with the smallest amount. Afterwards, I will only allow my hair to air dry, whether it is with rods, braidouts or hanging loose. My hair is very light with this product on wet and after it is airdried. I also use this product as a moisturizer. I have had great results with this product on dry hair. I have also used this product when I am baggying my hair. It leaves my hair so soft. 9.99 plus tax is the price. I have no cons. Five stars go to this product.

Overall, I have only tried 3 products of this line and I am extremely satisfied. I will continue to use these three products within my regimen. I hope this was helpful.

I have been MIA, details inside

Hello, ladies. I apologize for not blogging like I would want to. I have been so busy with school and work. However, I have had time to try to catch up with my blog reading about once a week. So, I would like to catch you up on a few things.

I wrote before that the wedding that I was going to be in was cancelled. So, that was a mess by itself. I had to try to get the money back for my dress. Thankfully, I got my refund. I have no idea why the wedding was exactly cancelled, but she said that she will probably get the plans back going in a few months. I am so thankful that I have time to grow my hair back from that horrible disaster I call my last salon visit.

I wrote a short piece on my last salon visit. About a month ago, I was got hurt, I still do not know exactly what caused it. But I was unable to lift my hands up a certain amount and I was unable to drive and do alot of things for myself. So, I wanted my hair done. Well, the girl who did it combed my hair out. The broken hairs overfilled my hands. I was so pissed. I will never go back to her again. Despite what I saw on the floor and in my hands, My hair ended up not being ALL THAT BAD. I do see where she combed my hair out at. I suffered alot of damage at the nape area due to her not detangling my hair properly. So, I am on a self-diagnosed bootcamp to revamp my hair. I am using Suave Damage Repair Conditioner. I am taking my prenatal vitamins. I am participating in this protective styling challenge and I am not using heat. I am trying to take the best care of my hair.

I relaxed my hair on February 9th. I decided to go ahead and relax since the wedding was cancelled. So I tapped out at 10 weeks. I did not take any length pictures. I did have a good look at my ends and due to the horrible stylist, I am going to need a trim now. I do not plan to do an official length check until after the protective styling challenge and the rollersetting challenge. If I am not mistaken, the rollersetting challenge ends on June 1st, which is my birthday. I plan to relax the day before and have my official length check then. Constantly checking to see progress is annoying. I am going to try to enjoy my hair while protecting my hair until my birthday.

I will not relax my hair again until May 31st. I will not trim my ends until this day.

So, what new products have I been trying?

Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong - I love this conditioner. I have noticed a lot of strength in my hair with the very few uses.

Suave Damage Repair - I am in love with this conditioner. It says on the bottle that it is compared to Redkin products. I have been mixing this conditioner with the aforementioned conditioner as a DC. It works wonderful together.

Suave Professionals Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner -  The bottle claims to add shine to hair. I have seen a great difference with shine.

Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smooth and Shine Serum - It adds oil and shine to my hair without wearing my hair down. It controls my frizz wonderfully. I have not tried this with a straight style yet (review in the making with a roller set).

I am going to have to start back designating a blog day. I believe that my next post will be a review on the ONE AND ONLY ARGAN OIL products. I will be doing a 3-in-1 review. It is going to take me a day or two to get it together. But I cannot wait to share my findings with you.

IF YOU SHOP AT SALLY'S AND HAVE A BEAUTY CARD, LOOK OUT FOR THE 30% OFF DEAL ONLY ON FEBRUARY 23RD!!!!!!!!!

I will be going on this day. I believe that my purchases will be flexi rods and other rollers. TTYL!

Small update!!!

I have no pictures, because my blog page is so fickle. However, I would like everyone to know how my hair is doing. After getting that horrible hair do from hell (the experience was hell), I have been nursing my hair back to health. I washed my hair and noticed that I am experiencing a new problem area, which is the back of my head. She combed a significant amount of hair out back there in the middle, which I figured would be where the most damage was done. But this isn't the worst news.

I was so excited about my LS's wedding, HOWEVER, the wedding was called off. I have no idea why. She has also told me that there is a possibility that there will be a wedding in the next few months or so. IDK, lol, but I am glad that I have more time to grow my hair out for the wedding. I also bought the dress, lol.

Since the wedding has been cancelled, I will be relaxing my hair TOMORROW. I am unable to do anything with my NG. Since I cannot tame my NG, I will relax early. I am about ten weeks post. I will have a blog post up tomorrow about what went down. Also, I will have pictures of the true damage to my hair.

TTYL
