During May the site will be covering a whole heap of products just for mum. We are so aware that we need to look after ourselves and whether that means a nap in the afternoon or a new product to use in the bathroom we will be focussing on a few lovely new products that will have you feeling great! Today we are featuring Pure, an argan oil that can be used on your hair or your body. Here is what Elizabeth had to say about it:
Argan Oil is produced from the argan tree, which has been grown in Morocco for centuries. It can be used for food but is increasingly used in cosmetics. It is renowned for its moisturising and nourishing properties for skin and hair. It contains a rich amount of vitamin E, as well as omega 3 and omega 9 fatty acids.
As I have naturally extremely frizzy hair (fine, curly, and flyaway) and as I have bleached it blonde for the last few years, my hair is definitely in need of some TLC and nourishment. I have been seeking out serums and oils containing argan oil for the last couple of years to calm the frizz and keep my hair in good condition.
I was excited to try this pure argan oil, as most of the products on the market only contain a small amount of the oil, whereas this offers the oil in its purest form. It’s a very high quality product in a little bottle with a dropper. Of course, because it is a pure oil, it results in a slight greasiness when applied, so I would say this oil is best used as a special, overnight treatment for face or hair. Before bed, I used the dropper to squeeze some oil into my hands. I ran this through my hair from roots to tips. Then I went to bed (with a towel on the pillow!).
The next morning I washed my hair as usual and was delighted to find my hair was soft, satiny, light and bouncy, and the straw-like texture and tangles were gone. I also rubbed some of this oil on the dry parts of my face for extra nourishment.
I am looking forward to doing a weekly hair treatment with this oil, to restore softness and shine and to help control the frizz.
Pure has a RRP of £28.00/100ml available from www.thepurecollection.com
