My moroccan oil ran Out and I'm too poor to buy a y more right now but I have a mind to get some as gifts for people and myself as well. But I have heard that Argan oil is better. Btw I am happy with moroccan oil as it did make my hair feel good and I swear it is missi g it now.
So please what is better? Moroccan oil or Argan oil?

I use Argan oil and love it. It was very expensive from my hairdressers, but recently I got a large bottle off Amazon for the equivalent of half the price. It was about £17, but will last for ages!!
The small bottle lasted me about 9 months and that was with DD1 "sharing" it, too. hmm So I am expecting this large bottle to last me at least a year!

I am now using an Argan oil and keratin protein blend which is far, far superior in my opinion.

Free of Sulphates, Parabens, dyes and phthalates

Do you know if that has silicones in it BattyDevineIntervention ?

I'm currently using Mythic Oil from Loreal , I have also tried Argan oil from Sally's and Lee Stafford's argan oil thingie.

I think they all worked well, I'm just a sucker for 'the next best thing'

Currently waiting to wash hair after home brazilian keratin treatment!

I have just discovered Extraordinary Hair Oil by Elvive L'Oreal - much better than Argan oil imo - and £10 for a bottle that will last AGES.

I bought some argan oil from holland + barrett recently and am v underwhelmed. Does no more for my skin than almond oil would, and it's 5x the price. Plus it quite literally smells like shit.

I thought it was for hair... confused

I use the hair design studio's argan gold hair vitality oil which cost me 4 quid in Asda. Works beautifully
