Dr. Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve used quite a few Dr. Organic products (available at Holland & Barrett) over the years with varying results. In general, I’m not a big fan of their shampoos…

Dr Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

Unfortunately, their Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo is no exception. It’s very difficult to work through the hair and lather, despite the fact it’s got sodium lauroyl sarcosinate in it (so not that natural). My (dry and curly) hair felt really “stripped” after I rinsed it, which isn’t what I expected from a product with ‘oil’ in its title. Maybe this would suit very greasy hair types.

The smell was another bugbear; I felt like I’d been transported back to one of those hippy shops from the 90s where you buy incense sticks and suns and moons to hang on your walls. Woof.

But I had a total Jekyll and Hyde moment when I used the conditioner! Pow! It smelt divine: spicy, (that’ll be the clove oil), exotic and good enough to eat! Its detangling properties were also fantastic – I used less than I normally would and it was knots out and smooth hair in. No mean feat when you consider my curly and coarse mop of locks.

There’s lots of hype about argan oil and I wouldn’t like to say whether this was the magic ingredient or not. But I would certainly rate this conditioner. On a recent trip to Morocco we picked up gallons of argan oil and I’ll be putting it to the (not terribly scientific) test soon. More in coming weeks.

Dr. Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner: £5.99 each

Natural credentials: Lots of natural and organic ingredients and free from parabens but contains sodium lauroyl sarcosinate to get the shampoo foaming, which didn’t even work. Think of these as naturally inspired and striving to be as nasties-free as possible without compromising on performance, rather than 100% bona fide chemical-free.

    • I personally preferred the argan oil conditioner to the shampoo. But I’ve just started using a great shampoo by Shea Moisture. It’s called Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Shine. Very hydrating. Review will follow here soon 🙂

  1. Hi there! This post could noot be written any better! Going through this post remminds me of my previous roommate!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Despite the high price of argan oil due to its rarity,
    argan oil production also helps empower women in Morocco, especially the Berber women. In a few
    ways, it works like some other hair oils, but it gives you distinct
    advantages which make it a lot better than the other essential oils.

    They use it to strategy to the delicate epidermis of their young people, and they even put it to cooking use in cereal or on bakery.
