Organix Moroccan Argan Oil – good Moroccan Oil alternative

I was reading Lily's beauty blog and saw a recent review on this product from Organix. I've passed by this product a million times in grocery stores, drug stores, and everywhere in between. I never really stopped to look at it or read the product label. That is, until I read Lily's review and thought "this might be worth a try".

I'm a lover of the "real" Moroccan Oil. I'm not a lover of its high price tag. To be honest, I'll continue to buy Moroccan Oil regardless of how much it is but am now going to switch back and forth between it and this product. It's pretty good and I'm loving the under $10 price point. I also prefer its snap closure lid to the screw on cap that Moroccan Oil has. That being said, the screw on cap is better for travel as it's less likely to break or burst open and result in oil covered clothing.

Essentially, this "dupe" by Organix is a slightly lower quality (meaning the concentration of actual oil is lower) hair oil. It smells, feels, and applies amazingly and is overall a fantastic product considering its pricepoint and its drug store competitors. I prefer Moroccan Oil particular because it offers an option for light or fine hair and can't argue with its higher oil concentration. But, I found this oil to be great for the ends of my hair and would recommend anyone in search of a more affordable option to try this. I'd suggest you stay away from the hair that's 7 inches or closer to your part just because it is slightly heavier than Moroccan Oil and you'll probably find it weighs down your hair a little more if applied too high on the head.

If you've never used a hair oil before (who are you!??! just kidding!) it's a fantastic option and a much better alternative to smoothing serums and creams. It's nutrition for your hair and will allow for more manageable locks. When your hair is towel dried, apply a dime sized amount throughout the lower ends of your hair and then style as usual. If your hair is quite damaged, or you're looking to tame those annoying fly aways, use a tiny amount and rub it between your hands before applying to dry hair. It works wonders and gives you that freshly salon styled sheen.

      I’m really impressed by it to be honest! I’m always going to prefer Moroccan Oil for Light Hair, but this is an awesome alternative for travel or mixing it up. Love your blog, BTW xx

    I am with you on the real deal. Have you tried Josie Maran’s argon oil? 100% oil concentration, medium price tag. Check it out 🙂

    • theskinnyblondegirl

      I haven’t but I might check it out! Thanks for the rec.

    Im the exact same. I pass it often but never seem to look properly. I haven’t bought the Moroccan oil as of the price tag, but this might be a good dupe!

    • theskinnyblondegirl

      Definitely give this one a try if the regular price tag is turning you off. It’s an awesome product and 10x better than any smoothing serum. Plus, it’s not sticky. 🙂

    I’ll definitely have to stop and pick this up my next trip down the hair aisle! I’ve been using Moroccan Oil for a while, and honestly, my biggest gripe is the glass bottle (slippery fingers + natural klutz tendencies = accident waiting to happen, haha!)
