Argan oil - is it meant to smell like manure?

Bought this one in Holland and Barrett and it smells incredibly strongly of horse poo!

Very disappointed as even though it is disgusting, I could overcome the smell if the results were great but I'm not getting the lovely shiny results - just makes my blonde hair look a bit skanky (and that is only a few drops!)

I got some from Aldi - I wouldn't say horse manure; I was thinking more of marijuana. That sort of grassy smell.

I'm a dyed brunette and it was bloody marvellous for my hair - I did get the shiney thing.

The Aussie Conditioners make my hair so much nicer than Argan stuff. Didn't try the H&B version but I'm so quitting the whole Argan oil idea.

Purple shampoo for making the grey 'brighter' no there's a product

I got some lovely stuff from primark. Doesn't smell of poo though grin

I use organic argan oil and it doesn't have a strong smell. It does wonders for my hair.
