Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment Review

Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment from Primark

Ever since I received a sample of Osmo Berber Hair Oil in my May's Glossybox, I've loved the idea of them but I've never really felt like I could justify the cost of some of the ones on the market.

Back in November I stumbled across some small bottles of Argan Oil in Primark, of all places. Not one to shy away from what Primark has to offer in the beauty world I decided to add it to my basket. I did wonder whether it would be cheap nasty stuff but after putting it to the test I'm fairly impressed.

Of a morning I don't always have time to use conditioner (sleep is sometimes more appealing) when washing my hair which usually leads to knotted and static hair, which is something that is really irritating especially when driving - I don't know why but it is. I've found with this that it really helps to compensate for lack of conditioner and also leaves my hair fairly soft for the day, not to mention a definite reduction in static.

I definitely agree that hair oils can reduce drying time and this is no exception, another reason why I like it. Hair drying is such a chore to me, I really hate it so anything that will reduce the time I have to spend doing this laborious task is a winner in my eyes.

This oil itself is a burnt orange colour when poured out, and only a small blob is required. It also has a slightly odd yet inoffensive scent. One of these bottles lasts approximately 2-3 weeks depending on how generous you are when pouring into your hand.

Admittedly you can get a branded bottle from a Supermarket/Drugstore for about £10 such as L'Oreal Elvive's Extraordinary Oil but I've never quite wanted to hand my money over for it.

One day I'd love to try Ojon's Rare Blend Hair Oil but with a price tag pushing £30 I'm not so sure I can really justify it while trying to save money! I also think these would make great travel tubes especially if you do have one of the bigger glass bottles, that can definitely be a pain when flying - weight limit etc.

This 18ml bottle of Argan Oil is £2.50 and can be found in Primark at the till points (though they may also be elsewhere but not that I've personally seen).

  1. I got this one too and it also costs me £2.50 where I am. Am trying to try out different hair oils at the moment and I picked this one hoping that it was good for value.
    Actually, I havnt used this yet but after reading your post, it reminds me that I should! Thanks for sharing x

    1. Thanks for reading :)

      I'm going to look into some other hair oils once I've finished my little stockpile of this one up! x

  2. I have just finished my first bottle of this. I found it was quite heavy and if you applied too much, it made my hair look greasy but it was quite nice for £2.50! x

    1. Yeah I think you've definitely got to be sparing with this, I'm careful not to let it get anywhere near my roots for fear of looking greasy. xx

  3. I always want to try this, but whenever I see it there is never a price so I'm wary! Haha, I like your blog, especially the name!

  4. I might have to give this a go! I shelled out for the moroccanoil but it seems to be getting used a lot quicker than I first thought!


  5. I was so impressed with this oil... the rest of the range is pretty amazing. I have just reviewed the Macadamia version today on my blog actually hehe xx

  7. This seems like such a bargain! I'll give it a go when my macademia oil runs out x

  8. After using this I found my hair has become really dry and feels awful. But I'm confused as I have read some really good comments maybe I used to much :/
