We’ve all tried our fair share of hair oils.
Especially for those of us who have thick, coarse, dry, damaged or coloured hair – i.e. anyone with anything other than super fine locks. Hair oils have become a major part of our daily hair care routine.
But when it comes to hair oils you want to opt for one that has the ability to nourish your dry strands without leaving your locks looking too greasy.
So which to choose from when there are so many options out there?
Well one tried and tested option that any hair care fanatic will have heard of is argan oil.
But with the leading brand coming in at circa-£30 for a bottle, making that investment on a regular basis on top of the shampoos, conditioners, masks and anything else you need to keep a healthy barnet all adds up to a small fortune.
So we were thrilled when we came across a pocket-friendly argan oil that is so good it’s been met with hundreds of five-star reviews on Amazon.
The Body Source’s 100% Pure and Organic Argan Oil has topped the best-seller list for Amazon hair oils, and it's got more than 1,400 five-star reviews on there for its ability to condition hair without leaving a sheen of grease behind.
Rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, its cold pressed formula (which means all the goodness stays in as it’s not been heated at all) will nourish hair while protecting it against environmental pollutants that can lead to damaged strands.
And it’s double filtered to make sure all you’re getting is the organic materials and no harmful additives.
‘This is a must for long hair or if you are trying to grow it,’ wrote one fan. ‘My hair is very long and has a bleach balaayage [so] I wanted to find something to protect the condition and I really found it with this. My hair feels the best it ever has!
‘I have no frizz or fluff, it’s shiny, tangle free, controlled yet still feels really thick and not weighed down at all.’
‘The best Argan oil ever used,’ raved another fan.
‘My hair had a very healthy shiny look after and my natural curls looked very prominent after using this the first time. Highly recomend!’
‘The oil just feels so rich and luxurious,’ added another.
‘This stuff has completely transformed my rubbishy hair, it’s thicker and softer and I’m amazed! I would totally recommend this product for anyone with dry skin or damaged hair.’
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
