Repairing Dry, Bleached Hair With Moroccan Argan Oil

Saturday, February 28, 2015


The last couple of months have been very much about hair repair for me. After dying my hair jet black in a moment of courage/boredom back in November, I began to regret it pretty soon afterward and decided to start the process of lightening it again. Unfortunately I've been through this before (numerous times actually- I'm such an idiot!) and so had an idea how to go about it without completely frazzling my hair. But with any lightening process that involves hair dyes, strippers and bleach it of course was left feeling a bit dry and sorry for itself. Luckily there's a magical ingredient on the market which can rejuvinate the driest of hair, and that little beauty is 100% argan oil. Whether you just want to maintain the condition of your hair or give it a new lease of life like I did, this is the stuff you want.

There are loads of products out there containing argan oil these days, from shampoo and conditioners to repairing masks and oils. But one thing you have to be careful of is that lots of these (especially in cheaper products) contain such low amounts it's probably not going to do a whole lot of good for your hair. What you need is something like this from The Moroccan Argan Oil Co; it contains 100% pure organic argan oil, from a source that uses an extraction technique that's centuries old in order to get the best properties from the oil. The packaging of this is gorgeous, the amber coloured glass protects the top graded oil from UV rays- and the pippette dropper style top is handy for dispensing just the right amount. This is definitely a lot different from the 'argan oil' type products I've used before, for a start it's actually a lot heavier. Having such fine hair this isn't something I can run through the ends after washing as it leaves it looking quite greasy, however I like to generously apply it through my hair on days that I'm not doing anything and leave it on in the same way I'd leave on a conditioning treatment. On thicker hair this would probably be great as a post-wash oil but for me I need something lighter for everyday use and treat this more as a mask/ treatment.

I've been using this for a few weeks now and it honestly has made all the difference to the condition of my hair. As soon as I wash it out I can feel that my hair is significantly softer and my hair has felt a lot less dry and brittle. If you've recently bleached or dyed your hair and aren't sure how to go about repairing it I can't recommend this enough, £13.99 for 50ml is such a bargain too especially considering how most highstreet hair oils that probably don't even contain argan oils cost around the same. Plus as it's 100% pure oil it can also be used on your face, body, hair and nails.

Do you use argan oil in your routine?

  2. I need this in my life. I am killing my hair currently trying to get it as light as possible, so I can go a pale pink or purple. It was blue so it's taken a few bleaches to get it to the yellow blonde I have now, next stop - all the toners.
    What we do for pretty hair ay?

    This definitely sounds like a HG product, especially as a dye my hair a lot.
    I've done the whole dye my hair black and regretted it almost straight away far too many times "but I love black hair..." *sees reflection* "What have I done!? so can appreciate how hard it is to get back to blonde from that. With this making your hair feel softer, less dry and brittle in a few short weeks is amazing, especially for the price you're paying and what you're actually getting for it. Bargain. <3

  3. I feel your pain, bleaching really does leave your hair in a sorry state doesnt it lol. Mine definitely starting to regain some of it's strength and shine back now though so keep at it, for me it's been a mixture of this and deep conditioning masks (aussies 3 minute miracle surprisingly made a huge difference). Cant wait to see your pastel hair once it's done! x
