More than a year ago, I had one of those freaked out moments because I thought I was going bald! Thanks to hormonal upheaval after giving birth, I started losing my hair just 12 weeks of meeting my little bean. The horror! Thankfully, it seems to be a normal occurrence for most Moms at this stage. In fact, from what I’ve read, you’re expected to lose at least 400-500 hairs a day? Now, I’d be lying if I say that didn’t scare the living daylights out of me!
Blogging on the other hand, has really made my search for the best hair care products out there a lot easier, and coming across Argan Oil is one of the best finds.
It’s undeniable that Argan Oil, dubbed as ‘liquid gold from Morocco, is pretty big in the hair department for a while now. Whether you have long, short, curly, straight, coloured or just jet black hair, you might want to turn this way and give this ‘talked about’ hair product your undivided attention.
Dr. Organic finally added Moroccan Argan Oil range to their vast selection of skincare and haircare products! So behold, my three favourite products so far, and certainly worth recommending to all my readers.
Get ready for a silky, smooth and lustrous hair this Christmas!
Your Everyday Shampoo

I never really knew what type of smell to expect from this range being a first Argan Oil user myself. And to this date, I still wonder since the ingredients have all been mixed up with something else. Nonetheless, I love the cinnamon-kick that this shampoo has. It just smells exceptionally invigorating and refreshing, not to mention festive!
You’d be surprised how this lathers rather well, despite the fact that it’s free from SLS (the foaming agent used in most shampoos) and only derives its lathering power from organic or natural ingredients instead.
The lovely cinnamon and citrusy scent will really wake you and simply lift your mood up. While the affordable price is something to hurray about. I managed to grab this and the body wash during the Buy 1 get 1 half price sale across all products at Holland and Barrett. I paid £8.80 for both products. Pretty decent price for two, I’d say.
Quantity/Price: 265ml – £5.99 for the shampoo only.
Restorative Treatment Conditioner
Thank you to Dr Organic for supplying both the Treatment Conditioner and Serum for review purposes.
I must say, I don’t think I have a big problem in terms of split ends or hair breakage, but my hair does feel limp at times and my scalp really needs nourishing. And this treatment conditioner does the job pretty well. I use this occasionally, when my hair feels like it needs TLC, but surprisingly, I’m seeing noticeable improvements. Less itchy and flaky scalp – I really think the hot shower is making it worst, so I’ve been doing my best to embrace the ‘cold hair washing’.
This product leaves my hair amazingly soft and easy to manage without the dreaded greasiness later on. Although this still has the signature scent (cinnamon!), I feel that it’s pretty toned down in this one, or perhaps that it could be me just getting used to the smell and enjoying it?? LOL

How to: You simply apply this on a damp hair, leave for 5 minutes and then rinse. And you just follow it up with your normal shampoo and conditioner routine.
The only quibble I have is the packaging. Dipping or scooping products out of my beauty or skincare stash are terms I don’t quite enjoy doing. And this big 200ml tub happens to fall in that category. So make sure to put aside a humungous spatula or designate a spoon whenever you need some hair treatment. A little goes a long way for this product, so at £7.99, you know it will be worth it in the end. I’ve had mine for over a month or so now, and i’m not even half way there yet!
Quantity/Price: 200ml, normally sells at £7.99
And to really enhance the lusciousness of your locks, the finishing touch of this next product will certainly do the trick.
The Hair Treatment Serum

Directions: Use sparingly. Avoid applying directly to roots. Use more or less depending on hair length and thickness. Do not rinse out.
Styling and Finishing: After shampooing and conditioning use a small amount in the palm of the hand and massage it through towel dry hair, style as desired.
Natural Protection: To control frizz and protect hair apply a few drops to dry hair as often as required.
I always consider my hair to be on the oily side, especially during this time of the year, which is weird. But the hoo-haa from all the hormonal changes, anything is possible. Luckily, this serum, unlike the ones I’ve tried and resented afterwards, does not have that greasy feeling. Instead, you’ll be frizz-free, hair feels silky, while giving you that ‘wow’ factor. And who doesn’t love a healthy looking hair this season, or all year round?
The blend of ingredients in each product across the Moroccan Argan Oil hair range so far, has really won me over. Along with the cinnamon scent, this one has a hint of geranium that you might notice, although just like the two products above, the smell is not overpowering. And don’t you just love the luxurious, beautifully designed frosted-glass effect packaging? I think this would be a wonderful treat this Christmas.
Quantity/Price: 100ml, normally sells at £14.99
Don’t forget, Holland and Barrett (official distributor of Dr Organic’s products) currently has the Buy 1 get 1 half price sale on! You don’t want to miss that.
