I love my red locks, but I was looking for more of that shiny hair-commercial look on a daily basis. Along came Nexxus’ new Oil Infinite line, and I was lucky enough to get a chance to review it myself in a video we filmed for Nexxus at Walmart. Boom!
I used to regularly dye, flat iron, blowdry and otherwise abuse my hair, and even though I’m reformed, my current ends still remember the traumas of days gone past. I’m always looking for a product I can pamper it with as sort of an apology. Hairstylists often recommend Moroccanoil Hair Treatment for dry, overprocessed hair, and as you might guess, they know their stuff.
Why all the hype? The secret is argan oil, which was a well-kept secret of the Middle East until the founder of Moroccanoil got an amazing oil treatment in Israel.
The coolest part of using argan oil is the impact you get to have on the lives of the women who harvest it. Yes, I said women.
Much of the argan oil produced today is made by a number of women’s cooperatives. Employment in the cooperatives provides women with an income, which many have used to fund education for themselves or their children. It has also provided them with a degree of autonomy in a traditionally male-dominated society and has helped many become more aware of their rights.
This makes argan oil officially the coolest and most socially aware beauty breakthrough we’ve had in a long time. What better cause than making the lives of women around the globe better?
Living in the desert is totally different than it was living in Houston. While moisturizing was optional and sometimes disastrous in humid southeast Texas, it’s a must in Phoenix. Both my skin and hair have completely changed from dripping-oily to bone dry since I moved. What’s a girl to do?
Luckily, I just so happen to be well versed in the world of hair care, and I know that argan oil and keratin are two essential ingredients for keeping hair strong and ends moisturized. When I heard about Hask’s Argan Oil and Keratin Protein lines, I was stoked to try them out on my limp ends!
