Hair oils are not new. When Morracanoil came out, I was all over it. I bought the light version, designed for fine hair (which I have). It smelled awesome and made my hair feel like silk. But over time my hair didn't feel so great. That's when I investigated the ingredients:
Moroccanoil Light Oil Treatment Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Butyphenyl Methylpropional, Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil Argan Oil), Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Extract Parfum (Fragrance), D&C Yellow-11, D&C Red-17, Benzyl Benzoate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.Can you believe how many silicones are in that product? The first three ingredients! No wonder my hair had stopped looking fantastic - product build up. The only way to get rid of that build up? Harsh shampoos filled with sulphates that actually made my fine hair more greasy, as it was constantly trying to compensate for the harsh shampoos. That's when I decided to go silicone and sulphate free. I have never regretted that decision! In fact, the skin around my hair line actually cleared up! But I did miss the luxurious feeling of a hair oil. I thought I would have to live without it forever!
Then my friend Christine started raving about this new hair oil... Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil. Created by a husband and wife team who chose to use only natural ingredients inspired by the hair oil his father used in India. And they didn't include a single silicone!
You use this oil a little differently, here are the directions taken directly from Darshana's FAQ Page:
With it being winter and having less humidity in the air, it is getting harder and harder for me to wear my fine hair curly. I end up with slightly frizzy wavy hair! When I use the Darshana Oil, I am left with heavenly, shiny curls. I slept with it in last night and I am actually looking forward to drying my hair this morning! Plus - it smells like oranges!
No matter what type of hair you have, you should give Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil a try!
