I have blonde highlights in my hair (lots of them) and use this serum without worry. It hasn't affected my highlights in any noticable way. But I also wear a hat while in the sun. It softens my hair and gets rid of that dry frizziness I get from having my hair highlighted in the summer.

MorrocanOil contains ingredients that are very bad for your hair. Argan oil is listed as the 6th ingredient.. Do a web search for MorrocanOil ingredients. There's a reason they're not listed on their own website. I suggest sticking to basic argan oil.

I have used the moroccan oil conditioner and I really like what that did--I think I have similar results from using this, but I like using the oil vs. conditioner because I think it's more cost-effective. But they're both argan oil-based, right? If a different brand is working for you, go with it!

I've used both the Josie Maran and Moroccan Oil brands. And I like both. The former seems more like a shine serum than an oil to me. I think it's also lighter weight in my hair. And it smells like citrus but not too stronly. The latter is closer to an oil. I have relatively thick, coarse, wavy hair so I don't mind that the latter is heavier. I think I get better defined waves with it. It smells stronger and like the beach to me. I'm guessing it has more frangrance in it.

answer 1
I have never used Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum, but have used the Pequi oil. The Josie Maran product is more of a serum (thicker, almost like silicone) while the Pequi is lighter and more of an oil. I have found that this argan oil serum makes a MUCH bigger difference in my hair than the Pequi oil. That being said, I can use the Pequi oil on wet or dry hair, and it never weighs my hair down. You have to be careful how much of the argan oil you use, as it is definitely heavier on the hair. I use one pump of this on the ends of damp hair before finishing my blow dry with a round brush. I suppose it depends on your hair type and preference. I have medium-long hair, and am growing it out. I color every 8 weeks or so and have had trouble in the past with dry ends and breakage, but I don't anymore with this product.

The argan oil is awesome and it just makes your hair feel like you don't have anything in it as upposed to others which make your hair sticky, unmoveable, and greasy looking. Make sure your hair is wet when u put it in though, and 3-4 pumps is all you need for long normal thickness hair. I had the trial size that was $10 and I bought the big one for $30 because it's that good once you try it out.

Oscar Blandi smells fantastic. Works great as a frizz tamer. Josie Maran smells orangey. Does not work well as a frizz tamer. However, it made my hair healthier. Ugh I cannot see your question as I type. I forget the other brand you asked about. Phyto has an oil pre shampoo treatment, save your money get V05. Ojon makes a damage reversal treatment. That one is nice. Hmm. Bamboo is my favorite for frizz control. I say save your money on all this stuff. Buy wen it is AMAZING. If you need an oil after using Chaz Dean (wen), his are amazing.

I have tried all 3 (Blandi, JM and Pequi), and if you're looking for long-wearing anti-frizz, soft hair and subtle shine properties, Pequi wins hands down. Blandi and JM seem to act more like other silicon-based products, when you first put them on, your hair looks amazing, and then 5 minutes later, the frizz is back. Not so with Pequi. Also, I do not have color-treated hair, and it works great.

It helps the health of your hair. It is not oily. I just do not think it would be great at treating scalp issues. Argan oil itself might help, but it is expensive to use as a scalp treatment.

When I have any of these scalp symptoms (itchy, dry, flakey, feels like a residue/oily), I use Tea Tree oil. I love WEN. Try WEN tea tree cleansing conditioner AND WEN tea tree oil (for bath, body, hair). Cleanse with the cleansing conditioner at night. Wait until your hair is damp. Apply the oil to scalp, work it through hair a bit. Wrap (get a turbie towel). Leave in until morning. Cleanse again with the cleansing conditioner. Cleanse with the cleansing conditioner every night/every other night for a week. Use the oil twice a week for the first week. You should be getting better by week two. With continued use, I never ever ever have those issues anymore. The stuff is amazing. My hair is amazing since using too.

Try buying both the hair serum and the pure Argan oil. Use the hair serum daily after you wash and condition your hair. Finding the right amount to use is the key in not creating an oily mess, but do apply a light portion to your scalp. Here's where the pure argan oil comes in: Before shampooing, apply generous amounts to your dry scalp and let it cover your entire head of hair. Really soak it with the oil. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes, or put it on at night and wash it out in the morning (you may want to wear a shower cap to bed in that case). Then shampoo once or twice and condition as normal, and see how your scalp feels. You should see results after one treatment, but more results with each treatment thereafter.

You mean the hair serum and argan oil?

The hair serum is great for improving the over all health of your hair. After cleansing/conditioning, use on damp towel dry hair. Don't need much.

When you style, use argan oil to tame fly aways, for frizz, to define curls, to protect from heat, basically use the oil to style.

I know they say the opposite, but the opposite did not work as good as doing it the way I described above.

This product is really designed for the hair. The other oil can be used for hair as well, but the hair serum is for styling and managing frizz. The oil (the "other one") is great for the skin and for taming flyaways. It can also be used as part of your conditioning treatment. Both products are awesome, but the hair serum is just that and is more a styling product than the oil by itself.

The regular Argan Oil is extremely good as a hot oil treatment in the shower, but using it on dry hair afterwards can make your scalp oily much more quickly than the hair serum.

This one is lighter and specifically formulated for the hair. THe regular argan is good for ends (if your hair is at least shoulder length I'd say). Otherwise it creeps up and makes your hair look greasy especially if applied when wet. It can also be counterproductive in actually weighing your hair down. This hair serum adds lift and life, plus it smells so good.

I recommend using it generously after you shampoo while the hair is damp, concentrate on the middle and ends of hair. When the hair is dry apply more as needed. It is very light and has a nice scent.

I have dry frizzy color-treated hair. The Argan Oil tames my frizz and I like that it does not contain all the bad stuff in most other products so I apply freely and it does not weigh my hair down. I recommend you try it. I'm not sure how bad your frizz gets, but you may just need to apply more than others and with this product I think that's good for your hair.

This product will not tame your curly curls. The only thing this will do is repair your split ends and make it a little more shiny.

ok but my frizz is everywhere, including (especially) on the top of my head. my hair isn't extra thick, so I'm worried if I put it on top of my head, my hair will look greasy... I guess I just don't understand how exactly to use this. Any advice?

As it nourishes and promote healthier hair, the frizziness on your curls will be reduced, and it will be much more shinier.

Question
Subtitute for conditioner?
Can/should this oil be replaced for hair conditioner? I have fine, thin hair and I'm wondering if I were to use both, would it be too much?

It is not a substitute for a conditioner. I would still suggest using a light weight conditioner for your fine hair and this serum can be used on wet or dry hair.

i wouldnt use it as conditioner. the serum is used to style your hair and make it look pretty while conditioner would be used to actually "repair" or "hydrate" your hair

I would use both because this is a leave in product and conditioner is supposed to be rinsed out. Start with 1 pump, then add another if your hair can handle it. I use 2 pumps, put it mostly where my hair is drier and a bit frizzy, then sort of spread it from there. If breakouts are a problem for you, keep it away from bangs or the front edges of your hair.

I think a conditioner is a MUST, even if it is only used 1-2 times per week. The oil is something you can use on a regular basis, but remember- a little goes a loooong way! In my experience, the right conditioner helps the oil do its job a lot better, my hair is more manageable when I use both.

NO. Definitely wash your hair properly with shampoo and a light conditioner if your hair is oily and then use this product. If you're having problems with your hair being oily maybe try a clarifying shampoo and don't use a leave in conditioner. =]

I have the same hair type and use both, put in a small amt of argan oil after I wash my hair and use it again the next day on dry hair with no problems.

I think your best bet is to try the product (maybe get a sample if you're close to a Sephora). I use this product for frizz and don't always have the greatest results.

The oil is pretty lightweight and does not weigh my hair down. I would not substitute it for conditioner. I apply the oil after shampooing and conditioning. The oil does not help with tangles which I am prone to getting. But again, it is so lightweight I do not think you will need to skip using conditioner.

It depends on how fine your hair is. For my hair the oil doesn't weigh it down at all, and I have such fine and oily hair that I can't even use hair conditioner or combination shampoo/conditioner. BUT the Argan Oil works great. I do not however know if you should use both. My best advice would be to experiment. Try one day of both conditioner and the oil, and then try another day of just the oil - and don't be afraid of it! I have had a fear of oils and conditioners because of my fine hair, but you can definitely feel where it is in your wet hair while you're applying it so feel free to use more than one squirt.

It won't weigh you down if that is what you are asking. If it does, you are using too much. If it still does, use it on damp towel dry hair.

I have fine, now thin hair (age!) and I use this. I use one drop plus a pinch more for my short bob, and it makes my hair like silk, really.
I live in a super dry climate though, so you'll have to go slow and try how much you need.

I have very fine straight hair and I love this product. Don't use too much though. It makes your hair shiny and easy to style...or leaves it looking great if you let it dry naturally.

I have shoulder-length, very fine hair and this serum is amazing for me. I put a small amount in damp hair (even right out of the shower sometimes) and either leave it to dry by itself or use a hair dryer. It does not leave my hair greasy at all. I truly believe it's about the amount that you use, just like any product. I would definitely recommend it for fine hair, just play around with it to get the right amount for you. I can't believe how soft this serum makes my hair. I've given up my beloved glossing cream in favor of this product.

Yes, I would. In my opinion just use a little less. I place the oil on my hand and pass my brush/comb over my hand and brush my hair. I then take what is left on my hand and rub it into the ends.

If it's dry or damaged, yes. If it's oily, I think it could still be used, just more sparingly. I think the benefits of argan oil are for all hair types
