I am already a big fan of LuxeOrganix shampoo and conditioner. It is the only shampoo and conditioner I will use now. So, I was super excited to see that they had a new product out. Up until now, my product of choice was just simply putting some Argan Oil in my hair when it was wet. I really liked doing this. It made my hair soft and shiny. Since this has Argan oil in it, I thought it would give a similar effect. It turns out that his product creates a totally different effect than just plain Argan oil. My hair is long, brown, fine, naturally wavy, and color-treated. I am 42 and the texture is changing, especially around my hair line. It is kind of getting that frizzy sort of on the verge of wiry, but not quite old person wiry , if you know what I mean.
So, when I first opened the bottle, I was surprised at the fragrance. It is very different, very unique. I can't put my finger on what the fragrance is. It almost has an earthy scent that is a tad sweet, but not too sweet. Maybe a tad flowery? I really can't place it. I have never smelled a product like this before, but I love it. Most importantly, it isn't too strong. The color is sort of creamy orange and the texture is thick and smooth.
I rubbed it through my hair, starting at my roots and working my way down. It has a conditioning effect and makes it easy to rub your fingers through your hair. Then, I let it air dry. Oh my goodness, I LOVED the way it looked! While using the plain Argan oil made my hair soft and shiny, THIS product makes it soft, shiny, but ALSO puts sort of a "hold" in your hair. With my wavy hair, it sort of put some separation in the waves, which made them more "salon looking." It does this without making it feel sticky, which is pretty amazing.
So, I woke up the next morning with this still in my hair, and I brushed my hair out (as I do when I wake up), and my hair felt soft, and like I could style it easily. The waves were sort of gone, but there was still this soft hold to it,. So, I put some water in it and my whole hair became totally refreshed, with the waves showing separately again.
I became an instant fan of this product and I have now been using it for about 2 or 3 weeks. I have tried it with a blow dryer to help straighten my hair, and it works beautifully like that, as well. You get the same "soft hold" that I talked about before and helps it look really smooth if you straighten it. I LOVE this product!
Christine, the co-founder, is also super helpful and if you have any questions or comments, she will write you right back with a very personal touch. I have had several exchanges with her, and I am so impressed with how hands-on she is with her company. I love small companies that provide such an amazing client experience like Christine does. I am for sure a life-time customer because the products are incredible, and I feel completely supported if I ever need anything from the company.
She will send you tips on how to get the best out of this product, and one important one is to make sure your hair is completely dry with the product in it before you flat iron your hair to prevent damage. An excellent tip that I thought I would throw in there.
I highly recommend this product if you really want a "soft hold" for your hair. I think you will love it! I think this would work amazingly well for people with curly hair. Like I said, mine is wavy, and it works wonderfully. But, I can also imagine it would be great with super straight hair, too. It seems really versatile, which is the big thing in beauty right now. I will continue to buy this product as my "go-to"!
