Sally Beauty's Argan Oil: A cheaper alternative to MoroccanOil

The first time I used the MoroccanOil hair treatment was earlier this year. My friend had styled my hair one day, and she applied it on my hair before she blowdried it. Oh. My. God. The results were amazing! My hair was so silky, frizz free and shiny! Since then, I've been hesitating to order my own bottle. Why? Because a bottle of this stuff is somewhere along the $35-$40 range. Sure, I can afford it, but do I really want to pay that much for a hair product?



On my last trip to Sally's Beauty Supply, I spotted a little trial size bottle of One N' Only Argan Oil at the register, and according to the sales clerk, it's comparable to MoroccanOil. I decided to give it a try.
Although it's an oil treatment, it's not oily. It doesn't leave my hair greasy and doesn't weigh it down. Loves it! I applied it before I blowdried and flat ironed, and the results were just as amazing as when I used the MoroccanOil. A little goes a long way because you really don't need much to get the job done. I still have half of that tiny bottle left and I used it about five times already. I will definitely get the bigger bottle on my next trip to Sally's. Has anyone tried One N' Only Argan Oil from Sally's? What do you think of it?

Thank you soooooo much for mentioning this! I've been wanting the Moroccan Oil for awhile, and I really don't feel comfortable spending that much on a single hair product, so this is great for me to see! I'm going to have to pick some up next time I'm at Sally's. Thanks!

I bought a full size of this today. Woow. I haven't tried it yet. It was mentioned on the K.I.S.S. blog and I took a mental note.
There were no trials left so I bought a 3.4fl oz bottle for $7.99 (w/ Sally's card.)
I'd ♥ to see how this works on natural hair?

@hana: you're welcome. let me know what you think of it once you try it.

@dwana: i'm sure it will work well on natural hair. it says it helps strengthens the hair, so that's a plus with me. next time i deep condition, i'm going to add some to my deep conditioner and see what it does.

been using this for 2 wks on my thick , coarse hair..... hair now feels like silk!

i put the oil on the ends of my hair before shampooing, then combine it with a leave in conditioner after shampooing and before styling.

btw, i got a sally's card and b/c i did, a $5 coup printed out.... will use it for more of this wonderful product!!!!

Try the "Sally" Argan Oil on your skin. It is truly amazing. I tend to have oily skin in certain areas, but this does NOT make my skin oily, only very soft. I bought it for my hair,but love it for my skin as well.

I just tried the samples of the One N' Only Argan Oil shampoo, conditioner, and restorative mask. It made my hair feel amazing, so I'd definitely recommend that.

I didn't know they had the oil by itself. I'll have to try that the next time I have extra money.

I also just realized when this was posted. Oh well, I stand by my lateness. :P

I love this stuff, it makes my hard water abused hair, super soft and shiny. I love the smell too. Can't go wrong with it for that price.

I've tried both MoroccanOil and Sally's One N Only. They both do exactly the same thing. My natural kinky curly hair is shiny and soft but not greasy no matter which one I use. I happen to love the musky scent of Moroccan Oil better but not enough to buy another bottle when I'm finished. It costs do dang much!

Those of you who have tried it, is the smell comparable to moroccan oil? I love the texture from moroccan oil, but I also love the smell.
