One day, in the mail, came a box. It was from a company that found me through my PRIMP partnership. (THANKS ladies:) This company matches up products with appropriate beauty bloggers to try out and review. As you know, I can be a bit of a product skeptic, but I am never opposed to trying a new one.
I opened the box and started digging around. What I pulled out was a literal motherload of products. One by one, out came close to 20 2 oz amber tincture bottles. Nice to meet you, Maijan!
First impression……I love tincture bottles. They make me feel safe and wholesome. Next impression……First product I pulled out was the Hemp and Argan hair and skin oil. I opened it. It was thick and rich and green and smelled faintly of dank, healthy ganja. First ingredient, Organic cannabis sativa oil. Here is an article on the benefits of Hemp oil for the hair.
People, ladies and men, I proclaim right now that I believe in the power of the hemp plant for beauty and remedy and health and fiber. Also, I believe that a product that is formulated for use on both hair and skin is always a good bet. I am a sucker for 2 in 1’s.
I pulled out more products. Organic mustard seed and Argan oil. Argan oil treatment with geranium, llang llang, and rosewood. Smelled natural and heavenly. A whole line of baby oil products. Way to go, Maijan.
In their press packet, I learned that Maijan products are Argan oil based. They are vegan and never tested animals. And all their oils are infused with natural essential oils used in ayurvedic tradition. I definitely trust ancient sanskrit when it comes to beauty and health.
Argan oil. So hot right now. Argan oil. Lets talk about it.
A little backstory……
What’s and why’s of Argan Oil
This mysterious oil burst onto the beauty scene a couple of years back with Morroconoil, the scrumulicious smelling brown light-weight oil that turns hair into smooth and shining perfect butter. Marketed as Argan Beauty Oil, Morroconoil has fooled many of us into thinking that the key to unlocking our most beautiful and healthy hair is the fine oil of this rare African nut. Problem is, Morroconoil is more dimethicone and petroleum-derived fragrance than Argan oil. But I’m not knocking it. People swear up and down by this stuff. I leave work after 10 hours of blow-outs with Morroconoil and the smell has worked its way into my skin ( And probably my bloodstream) and I literally can’t get it off of me. Again, not knocking it. Just saying.
But real Argan oil. Maijan products are loaded with the real thing. Here are some quotes from their press packet…
“Maijan Hair and Beauty Products are made with 100% Moroccan Argan Oil. Maijan beauty products solve daily beauty concerns such as damaged hair, hair loss, hair dryness, frizzy hair, dry scalp, thinning hair, dry skin, acne, and wrinkles with the purest of ingredients.”
“In short, this is an oil for ages for everything from skincare to hair care. It’s loaded with omega-6, antioxidants and vitamin E, all which are super-hydrating. That’s the secret: These ingredients get to work by providing this moisture our damage hair craves, we then achieve a healthy natural shine as well as protective properties from the elements.”
“Natural color and artificial color live in the cortex so argan oil will keep it moisturized and healthy. Artificial hair color can shrink without the right amount of moisture. If it is dehydrated it will slip out of your hair and cause fadage. Argan oil creates amazing shine therefore it reflects sunlight making for a very natural SPF,” says John Flemel, owner of the Urban Lift Salon.
Here are 10 uses for Argan Oil.
It has been a month now, and I have been using my Hemp and Argan hair and skin oil as my daily face moisturizer and all purpose hair smoothing, shining, conditioning and protecting hair product every day. It is lightweight and absorbs easily and feels luxurious. I have massaged my children with their Lavender infant massage oil. I am obsessed with the scrumptious smell of the Argan treatment. I am loving this line and I am stoked to share it with you.
