HSI Argan Oil (Review)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I cannot even articulate how much I love this product (and that's saying a LOT, because I usually reserve my actual tongue-tied "I can't"s for perfect Marvel movie casting and John Green books. OOH and Fandlemonium!)

I've always been pretty lax about my hair care- if it's clean and able to be tied back when it gets annoying, what else could I want?- but Argan Oil products have been blowing up all over the place (not literally, geez), so I decided to give this HSI Professional Leave-in (and therefore perfect for we lazy girls!) Hair Treatment with Argan Oil! They could have come up with a shorter or more creative official name... but not even that can make me dislike this product in the slightest!

First of all, this hair treatment smells amazing. I'm not entirely sure what is in it that makes it so glorious, but it's probably magic. In a bottle. Maybe a potions vial?
Sorry. That was a distraction.

Ahem. It's also an amazingly effective little bottle (vial?) of argan goodness! My hair has been consistently soft, flowy, and compliment-incurring since I first applied it (sneak a peek here)!
They recommend applying a few drops worth through wet (or dry!) hair, especially concentrated at the ends. I've been using it on my wet hair after showering, but Kitty and Laura have both used it on dry hair with instantaneously soft and beautiful results!

My only actual problem with this hair treatment (I told you, the name doesn't count!) is that it doesn't come with a dropper. You have to tip the bottle into your palm, which doesn't allow for much control over the amount you get on your hands and leads to messiness, waste, and occasionally greasy hair. (you can't see me, but I have sad face right now)

Speaking of Kitty and Laura, they have some more personalized recommendations regarding this product!
Kitty saw a noticeable improvement in the shine and softness of her lovely curls in addition to healthier ends (side note- apparently split ends happen quickly with curly hair? Something I wouldn't know, but I'm glad it helps!) 
Laura was surprised by how not-greasy her thin hair was after an OIL treatment! She was also pleased as punch with how soft it made her hair and agreed with me that it smelled awesome when I thrust the bottle under her nose excitedly (whoops)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
