The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

If you regularly read this blog you will know that I have thick, coarse and rather wild hair, if not, you do now. Dominican Haircare were kind enough to send me a big tub of Argan Oil Treatment to try out, which as you can see looks rather like custard but smells wonderful! It contains essential fatty acids, Omegas 3 & 6 as well as Vitamin E.


You can use this as a deep conditioner and leave in for ten minutes with hair wrapped in a turban or shower cap as I did and you can use a little sparingly on very damp hair as a curl cream. I did both. I used a blob a quarter the size of my palm in the shower, then a slightly smaller amount worked into very damp hair where it’s dyed as it’s naturally frizzier anyway.

(It was due for a wash so there’s some natural oil, rather than the usual fluff I get straight after washing)

I couldn’t believe how defined my waves looked (my hair is completely dry in these photo’s) and it was so soft and shiny! I’ve also noticed that I’m not shedding as much hair as I used to throughout the day so my hair must be stronger after just one treatment. I only need to wash my hair every two weeks so this 16 oz tub will last me ages!

      I know the feeling!
      My best tips are to massage hair oil into the scalp for five minutes before shampooing.
      Rinse with tepid/cold water
      Pat hair with towel or cotton Tshirt (I’ve been told) until hair stops dripping but is still very damp.
      Rub some hair oil or this treatment between palms and spread through the hair with fingers.
      Let hair air-dry or dry on cool setting until hair is 70% dry.

      I only wash my hair every two weeks and only use a little shampoo diluted in a cup of warm water (helps with spreading it evenly through my roots)
