Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioner Creme of Nature REVIEW



I'm currently in a passion twist protective style and was in dire need of a leave-in conditioner. My local CVS only had this option so I decided to give it a try!


Why a Leave-In?

Protective styles only benefit my hair when I keep my strands hydrated and sealed. My high porosity texture loses moisture easily especially in the colder months with less humidity.


Product Description

This spray leave-in conditioner is a hydrating and strengthening formula that protects against breakage and moisture loss. Here's a breakdown of the major ingredients...


Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil:

Argan oil contains fatty acids that help moisturize and reduce frizz, it also has anti-inflammatory properties and overall minimizes styling damage.


Cyclopentasiloxane:

Cyclopentasiloxane is a lightweight silicone derivative that helps with the spreadability of a product. It doesn't contribute to build-up because it easily dries down and protects against water loss.


Dimethicone:

Dimethicone is a silicone that helps with detangling. Frequent use can lead to product buildup and requires a clarifying or sulfate-based shampoo to remove. This product creates a water barrier to prevent moisture loss.


Hydrolyzed Keratin:

Hydrolyzed keratin fills the minor gaps throughout the hair shaft to strengthen/smooth hair strands. It can also aid as a humectant that draws moisture into the hair.


Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein:

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein reduces breakage by improving broken hair bonds and locking in moisture, thus leading to increased elasticity and shine.


PROS

-Lightweight without product build-up

-Silicones seal moisture for short term hydration

-Contains argan oil & smells nice

-Fairly inexpensive compared to other spray leave-ins on the market

-Softened and hydrated my new-growth

-Added shine

CONS

-Silicones require a clarifying or sulfate shampoo to rinse out

-Contains fragrance that may irritate the skin (I had no sensitivity)
