I love the curl I get from the humidity of summer, but I hate the frizz that accompanies it. Like so many women, I am constantly on the lookout for the next best product for my hair and skin. Whether you have straight or curly hair, long or short, there are just too many products to choose from! Trying to figure it all out can leave you standing in the aisles of your local CVS for hours.
I typically only use two products on my hair: an anti-frizz serum and gel. I find the type of hair gel doesn’t matter nearly as much as the anti-frizz serum. And when it comes to these serums, I’ve tried them all. John Frieda, Garnier Fructis, Citre Shine, Moroccan Oil and Macadamia Oil. I definitely prefer the oils over the other anti-frizz serums but the oils are VERY expensive.
But every now and then we get lucky and stumble upon something great. I was waiting to pick up a prescription at a local drugstore and decided to make good use of my time by looking for travel size products for my hair. Instead of a travel sized container, I found a large bottle of One N Only Argan Oil and picked it up to read about it. Of course, I couldn’t read any of the important information on the back of the bottle because I didn’t have my reading glasses with me! So I asked the woman at the counter if she knew anything about it. She RAVED about it. Like me, she had tried all of the serums and found this one to be the best. On top of that, her hair was really shiny—like she just finished a photo shoot for a magazine cover.
I was sold. Plus, the 8 ounce bottle was only $16.99 (the 4 ounce bottle sells for about $8). Compare that to 3.4 ounces or the Moroccan Oil Treatment for $41 and 4.2 ounces of the Macadamia Oil that sells from $26 to $36!
Sadly, I blew it the first time I used my One N Only Argan Oil. I squeezed the bottle too hard and a huge amount came out. I figured “What the heck? Maybe I’ll get the shiny locks like the woman in the drug store.” But NOOOOOOOOO. As I boarded my flight to Europe, I looked like a rat that’d been caught in a torrential downpour for 3 days. I’m sure people on my flight wondered why I didn’t wash my hair more often.
But the second time I used it, I got it right. My hair was shiny, it felt good, and it wasn’t frizzy! The nice woman at the drug store gave me some samples of the One N Only shampoo and conditioner to take on my trip. I like them both but don’t think they’re necessary to get the smooth results you’re looking for.
So give this smoothing oil treatment a try but remember not to use too much of it. Let us know if you like it or if you have any other products we need to know about.
Stay Smooth & Shiny,
