RICH Pure Luxury Rejuvenating Argan Oil Elixir [Review]



The Moroccon Argan Oil has taken the world by storm. The incredible benefits of it for Skin and Hair are indeed what makes it so sought after. Rich Hair Care has a complete Argan Color Protect range which includes the Pure Luxury Rejuvenating Argan Oil Elixir that I'm reviewing today!

RICH Hair Care Claims:
This beautiful, lightweight Argan oil absorbs quickly into the hair shaft without leaving any greasy residue. Hair is instantly softer, healthier and radiates shine from root-to-tip! The luxurious blend of Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Olea Europaea Oil helps strengthen and condition hair whilst reducing colour fade. Suitable for all hair types and is UV protective.
Instructions: Blend 3-4 drops between your palms and smooth through damp hair. Comb hair then style as usual. Reapply a small amount to dry hair for extra gloss.

My Thoughts: 
My hair is dry, wavy and about mid-waist in length, it gets very frizzy in the hot humid summers. I also keep changing my hair color which is the reason I need some special TLC for it. So these results are on dry-color treated hair!

Before I started using this I did some research of my own about Argan oil and the Silicones which are found in such hair taming products and found out interesting stuff. You can refer to Wikipedia for information related to these.

This RICH Argan Oil Elixir contains Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Olea Europaea Oil which helps strengthen and condition hair whilst reducing colour fade along with useful Silicones like Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol which are light-weight and do not weigh the hair down. The Cyclopentasiloxane (&) Dimethiconol Combination- Provides a smooth, velvety feel without greasiness. The result is improved wet and dry combing, longer-lasting soft feel, as well as heat and colour protection for treated or damaged hair.

This is a leave-in product, consistency is like a serum, and considering the fact that it's loaded with oils it DOES NOT make the hair greasy when applied properly. When I used this Argan Oil Elixir for the first time, I used a little too much because it weighed my hair down. The trick is to use it sparingly, about 3-4 drops which is written on the bottle too under the instructions. It can be used on wet or dry hair which is the best part according to me. I take 2 pumps of the product, rub it between my palms, flip my hair over and run my fingers through my towel dried hair thoroughly to distribute the product evenly and it instantly smoothes it out, combing becomes so much more easier even through wet hair. When I apply it to freshly washed and dried hair it smooth out the frizz like a serum and adds a bit of weight to my hair, making it bouncy. My hair looks healthier and gets super duper soft literally! The scent is lovely and luxurious. I cannot say that it makes my hair any more shiny than it already is. My hair color stayed the average amount of time but I like the UV and heat damage protection that it has. I can use my straightening and curling tools without any qualms after applying this. It even has an expiry date at the bottom of the bottle!

Another big advantage for me is that being a mother of two little ones I rarely get time for oil massages, hair treatments, or even a peaceful shower! So this comes in really handy, giving my hair the benefits of the Moroccon oil, and the silicones' goodness to make it soft, tangle and frizz free in no time at all.

Price and Availability:
Unfortunately they do not deliver to Pakistan but the entire range is available online here. You can also stay updated on their Facebook and Twitter.
This Elixir costs 14.90€ on their Website which roughly equals PKR 1900.

WINNER product! though the price is somewhat steep!

Have you tried the RICH Pure Luxury Rejuvenating Argan Oil Elixir?
