Dove shampoo now using Argan oil!!

Started 1330274694.057 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1330893781.81 by lovestodance

I get emails from the Dove company. Seems they are now adding Argan Oil to there shampoo's.

Since i have very dry,but baby fine thin hair i am wondering if Argan oil would be good for my hair.

I have been using NC curly shampoo,and Conditioner. Have permed hair but it is growing out.

Would appreciate some replies regarding my question?

Thanks,lovestodance

Since doing an in-depth study of argan, before my trip to Morocco as a photo-journalist some 5 years ago, and visiting with promoter of the women's groups that have banded together in this hand-crafted industry to provide education for their children - I've been tremendously impressed.

Argan oil has enormous properties, has been validated for eons in Morocco, the only place where the tree will grow.

I do wonder at the amount of the oil that is in the products that tout it, including the QVC guest who sells it in various forms. My guess, realist that I am, is not much. I use the pure oil, which I brought from Morocco and buy on-line from "Aziz" <<a href="mailto:aziz3@videotron.ca">aziz3@videotron.ca>, who would welcome your questions, and please use my name (Sandra) if you do, you'd do me proud!

Some 10+ years ago a couple (Estee Lauder & l'oreal) tried to buy Moroccan property where the trees grew, unsuccessfully (fortunately). EL has had a minimal amount - especially in their French line - for about 10 years, but one would have to've searched hard to find it, yet since I was studying argan, I did. Definitely, it is a healing product, as medical research has verified.

Argan is undeniably liquid gold!

While true argan oil may be wonderful, it is most certainly not rare. It doesn't matter where you go, you see argan oil in everything. I am very sceptical of all the argan oil claims. It is supposedly only able to grow in another country, and only harvested on few occassions. Yet, everyone is using it in their products, both expensive and inexpensive. Either argan oil isn't rare or people are using miniscule amounts or a cheaper version of it. I really cannot speculate, but it makes me wonder.

To answer your question, some oils can weigh hair down, especially fine hair. However, I don't think the inclusion of argan oil in your shampoo would affect your hair in terms of weighing it down, and will likely be a good helper with conditioning.

Thanks Lucky One, I have some samples of Dove Shampoo,and Conditioner. Have not tried it yet. I don't think they have the Argan Oil.

I have permed hair,and using NC curl shampoo,and Conditioner.

Since my perm is almost gone. Have switched to Matrix shampoo,and Conditioner for thin hair.

Did use it yesterday,and my hair seems more mananageable,and also more body then the NC ones.

Have really problem hair which is thin,sparse,and soft now frizzy,and flyaway.

Do use,and like Garnier Fructis intensely smooth leave in conditioner for Frizzy,dry unmanageable hair. Do use it in between my hair washing.

I live in a cold climate,and have Electric Heat. This time of season does leave my hair with more problems.

Are you questioning the purity of the Argan Oil sold by Josie Maran? I doubt the Q would allow her to sell 100% pure Moraccan Argan Oil if it was not the pure oil.

Oh her webpage, she says she buys her oil from the women's cooperative that you speak of.

OMG~~~I love that blog, Croemer! What a hoot! Thanks!

I was in love with Dove's original formulas and then they changed them up and my hair didn't behave as well. I'll have to try the "New New" formulation. I have a lot of thick, coarse hair to tame.

I was wondering the same thing. Adrienne (who sells makeup and jewelry) on HSN says it comes from one tree and one tree only. They have tried planting, I'm a guessing a seed from this tree, in different areas and it won't take (so she says). I see argan oil everywhere and I know some of these items probably have 5 drops of argan oil but I see several companies that say they sell 100% pure argan oil too. So one tree, on a few occasions, is supplying all of these companies with argan oil?{#emotions_dlg.blink}

Am not sure if i should get Keratin,or Argan oil for my hair?

Have very baby fine thin,dry,hair. It is also very soft and flyaway after i wash and condition it.

Since both Keratin,and Argan seem to be the new revolution now. Am confused with which would benefit me the most?

It's really very confusing to me.

Would love to hear from anyone that has the same type of hair that i do?

My perm is starting to go,and find it hard to have the body i do like with the perm.

Am also looking for a treatment to give my hair some body. I only want the leave in type ones.

I was at the Sally beauty site,and they have many different ones. Not sure which one to get?

Just to mention i have been using Topik fiber fill in which i believe someone here recommended. I have a few calics which does not help my issues.

It does cover my scalp in area's i need.

If this is the case...Argan oil will do wonders for you. I too have thick, course hair and AO has truly been liquid 24K gold for my hair.

Guess the 70 year old lady in France that threw up her arms and shouted "Argan Oil" was not aware that others had Argan Oil (Jos**ie - the only person with the 70 year old's secret to looking 50 Hmmmm). Even Adrienne has had an Argan kit for several years - not so exclusive huh? BUT - it's good stuff for moisture etc.

I am sarcastic b/c I am really tired of hearing claims that fall right on the edge of being misleading. Don't get mad I know caveat emptor but????
