I have looked everywhere but cant find it, does anybody know a good website. Since its quite pricey I would like to make sure I am buying the genuine thing x

I got mine from Amazon listed as Amargan oil.

dexter73 Wed 06-Apr-11 17:39:18

I bought this one and it is very good.

I've got Lee Stafford one from Boots,cost about £11.
Im saw a Tresemme version in Tesco the other day too.

Is the Lee Stafford one good? I was going to try it when my current bottle runs out.

miche8 Wed 06-Apr-11 18:13:32

has anyone used the real stuff - moroccan oil - and preferred argan oil? I'm nearly out of my small bottle its lovely don't know whether to try the argan this time and save some money.

I have used both the real stuff and the stuff linked to above,and much prefer the cheapo amazon one - I didn't feel any difference with the real thing but with the amargan oil it makes my hair that bit softer. I use it before drying and then after I run a few drops through my dry hair to smooth it and make it feel softer.

Still searching for The Miracle Product that will transform my dry frizzy locks into a lustrous mane though...

Yes. I use the Moroccan one. I buy mine from an American chain which happens to have a shop in Madrid where I work sometimes. It is blinking expensive but a little goes a long way. I'll look out the bottle and let you know the brand. Maybe you can google it and find someone selling it over here.

I bought mine off Amazon it was about £10 for the bottle, had my haircut today and the hairdresser was telling me how lovely and soft my hair was.

I haven't used it in respect to straightening my hair which is why I bought it initially, because I love the results so much on my curly hair, it's made my frizzy hair have lovely big bouncy curls in it.

It's true though a very little does go a long way, more than the size of a pea on my hair makes my hair look greasy.

Fustyarse have you tried the Curly Girl method?

CaptainKirksNipples Wed 06-Apr-11 19:28:13

Lee stafford has one now, available in boots for £11.

Dosey Wed 06-Apr-11 20:11:42

thanks you lot I have ordered some now. I tried the curly girl method on Monday and loving the curls but my hair is looking a bit manky since I only washed it in conditioner.

GeorginaWorsley Wed 06-Apr-11 20:29:23

MissFoodie Wed 06-Apr-11 22:21:51

Melvita sell an organic one, good value - if you buy this, or another pure one, you can also put it on your face at night, it's amazing!!!

Wow Dexter you paod a lot for a little. ou can get 100mls for half of that online at a West Indian or Asian Beauty store. Tey don't make huge profits, they just sell at a fair price unlike big high street stores.

notlittlemissperfect Fri 17-Jun-11 23:51:29

Edit: Tey = They

early80sgirl Sat 18-Jun-11 00:06:59

dexter73 Sat 18-Jun-11 09:32:46
