Why We’re Obsessed With This $6 Hair Oil

If you’re a beauty junkie like we are, then you know there are a ton of beautifying oils out there. Argan, Moringa, Marula, Coconut, Rose Hip, the list is never ending. And frankly it can get a bit overwhelming trying to find an oil that works for you. Not too long ago OGX sent us a few products to try throughout the summer. One of them sort of sat on our editorial shelves for a while, just waiting to be discovered. And discovered it was – all of our beauty girls loved this oil, and each of them has a different type of hair texture (ranging from very curly to wavy-straight and color-treated). Here’s what you need to know about the OGX healing + vitamin E Penetration Oil:

Penetrationg Oil

This oil is designed to help heal up dry, damaged, and brittle damaged hair via an infusion of Vitamin E. Vitamin E has it’s uses, from hair, to skin and nails, it’s a favorite among natural oil fans and with good reason. It’s a relatively inexpensive antioxidant and is meant to have conditioning and moisturizing properties. While you can use the oil solo, we observed that it is a little thicker than some other oil formulations out there, which can weigh down the hair shaft. We recommend mixing this beauty up with your favorite leave-in wash-out conditioner.

Our favorite combo? A quarter-sized amount of this Penetration Oil along with Aussie’s classic 3-minute leave-in conditioner.

As for the ingredients, the formulation is quite simple, keeping in mind that yes the Tocopherol Acetate (E) is a form of vitamin E (in case you were looking specifically for that, like we were). The primary ingredient is a version of silicone (CPS) which works to make your mane feel and look, well, fabulous.

We’re wild about this oil because it’s not just another oil. Not only is it affordable, but it turned one of our lady’s color-treated hair from straw-like to soft and silky, and another’s heat-stressed tresses into shiny and manageable. At, $5-6 a bottle, it’s easy to see why we’re obsessed.

Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Review

When I first started dabbling in beauty all those years ago I was a strict no-oil girl. In my mind I immediately associated oil with grease and grease with being unclean. Especially when it came to hair. I pretty much had no idea what natural oils were or how they were beneficial and essential to my skin, hair, and nails. Now, I’m all about ‘dat oil – which sounded a lot weirder than I meant it to… But now I know all the amazing benefits there are to using the right oils in your beauty routine! I had the Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil on my desk for a few a little while before I got around to it, and now that I’ve had the pleasure of making use of it I am hooked!

First off, I fell in love with the packaging – the brown glass bottle and glass dropper makes the product feel very luxurious – and at $43 a bottle, rightly so. However, at the end of the day the proof is in the product. This oil is meant to be used as a leave in treatment – but I’ve managed to dye my hair about three times in the past two months so I’ve been using this both as a leave in treatment and as a post shower treatment because my hair is so in need of any extra lovin’ that it can get. And it is working.

My hair normally gets this dry, thirsty, brittle feeling after dyeing – which sends me into a total panic – and my scalp will get irritated or flaky. But not so with this product. It has a very light consistency but the oil itself is very potent, and my hair has maintained lustre and volume despite my multiple dyeings. My favorite way to use this oil though is as a heat protectant – ironing my hair with a few drops of this distributed throughout it leaves my hair looking commercial-worthy shiny and healthy, and I love it!

The scent isn’t unlike many argan oils, and to be frank I don’t care much for it (the scent of argan, Moroccan, moringa, etc. oils), but it’s not an overwhelming scent and it goes away quickly. Personally, I’ve been impressed with the product and will continue to use it. I think the bottle offers a very generous amount of product considering that a little goes a long, long way. Ultimately, if you’re looking for a hair oil that will deliver the honest goods – then this is it.
