Pure and Essential Minerals Organic Morocco Argan Oil Hair Treatment Mask Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



 


The company Pure & Essential Minerals was kind enough to allow me to try out their Morocco Argan Oil Restorative Hair Treatment Mask. I love Argan Oil products! I anxiously awaited my package to arrive in the mail...



Product Details (according to company)
  • Contains certified Organic Argan Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Aloe Juice, Organic Meadowfoam Oil, Pro-vitamin B5, and Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
  • Penetrates hair shaft to restore essential moisture
  • Delivers instant long-lasting rejuvenation and life to your hair
  • Replenishes dull, weak, and damaged hair
  • Zero harsh chemicals, parabens, fragrances or artificial ingredients
  • Vegan certified, cruelty-free


This is what the mask looks like. It's an opaque white creamy color in an easy to open jar. You have to scoop it out with your hand to apply onto your hair.

My Opinion on This Hair Mask

I love using hair masks on my hair at least once a week to keep my curls looking good. My hair usually responds very well to Argan Oil products.
First off, I received this product and due to issues at the Amazon warehouse, not the company who makes this, almost half of my product had spilled out of the container before it arrived at my house. Sad, but true. Like I said, it wasn't the company's fault. Well, perhaps if the container had a plastic seal around the lid to lock it closed until opened for first use, this would not have happened...
However, this didn't cause damage to the actual product, just gave me less to work with. I have a lot of hair, even though it's not very long, so I figured I wouldn't get too many applications out of this little jar. 

I used it as directed, after shampooing my hair. I actually let it sit in my hair for the entire shower, which I like to do with hair masks, and I've even left it for over an hour in my hair under plastic wrap hoping for even deeper conditioning.
The consistency of the product is a little different from what I prefer. This one is more watery than any other mask I've used. I prefer thicker masks because I don't have to use as much and my hair tends to absorb them better. I feel like I have to use a lot of this to cover all of my hair. 

I do love that it has natural ingredients, is free from parabens and is cruelty-free. It doesn't have much of a scent either- I wish it did have a good, long lasting scent. 
As for results?
After leaving the product in my hair for a while, it did leave my hair with less frizz, it did detangle it, it did feel softer and slightly less dry, but not a HUGE  difference. 
HOWEVER,
I decided to try and mix this product with my natural hair mask of honey and olive oil and it worked better! It actually made my natural mask work better than usual. Maybe the combination of everything in the Morocco Argan Oil Hair treatment plus the honey and olive oil just blends well, yielding better results? 
It's not a bad product, it just doesn't work as well on my hair, as pure Argan Oil does. 

If you would like to purchase a jar, you can buy your own on Amazon.
