I just want to share with you my currrent addiction - SNOE INTENSE ARGAN OIL CLEANSING CONDITIONER. It is because of this conditioner that I dragged myself to a computer shop to start blogging. I don't have a PC at home so I'm really going out of my way to share with you my views on this. Please also excuse the crappy photos as I'm only using a camera phone.
Believe me when i recommend a hair product to you guys. With the intensity of damage my hair has sustained from constant rebonding, my recommendtion of this product is indeed really saying something! This has been my holy grail hair product for about a month now (and still counting). This has even replaced my Pantene Restoratives Anti Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. 2 When I was in the U.S. 2 years ago, I hoarded 12 bottles of Pantene to ensure that I'll have enough supply. Sadly, I could not find this type of Pantene conditioner in the local market anymore. I even went as far as going to stores that sell PX goods. I guess this was a blessing in disguise as it led me to discover SNOE Argan Oil Conditioner. I even commented on Snoe's page that their company is one of the reasons I am proud of being a Filipina.
My hair type is super curly which is severely, badly, unapologetically damaged! This is mainly because I go to the salon to have my hair rebonded every 4 to 5 months to touch up on the roots. I am hoping that with Hair Heroes, I will be able to stretch my relax to 8 months.
Priced at 499 pesos, this may seem like a lot of money. Believe me, it's worth every penny. I use it as my shampoo, leave in conditioner and mist for the hair! Let me share with you my hair care routine.
I alternate between using SNOE Olive Clementine Shampoo and Absynthe Argan Hair Goddess shampoo to cleanse my hair. I wash it thoroughly. I then dilute about 6 pumps of argan conditioner in a dipper (tabo). I cover my hair with a plastic shower cap while watching random Youtube videos (Yes-in the shower) for about 5-8 minutes. I'm a sucker for videos made by Natural Ladies on Youtube. I then rinse off the conditioner but I make it a point to still leave some of the product on my hair for that extra slip. Believe me, it won't ever weigh your hair down or make it oily!!!
I dry my hair using an electric fan. I'll stand in front of the fan while combing my hair for about 20-30 mins (I rarely use heat on my hair). As soon as it's about 90% dry,I'll apply a pea sized amount of conditioner on my hair again to get rid of the frizzies.
I then install my Curlformers (review on these in an upcoming post) to curl my hair. To ensure that my hair will hold the curl, I dilute 2 pumps of the argan oil conditioner in a spray bottle. I then spray my Curlformed hair with this mixture. I sleep with the Curlformers on my hair overnight. When I wake up and take the curlformers out, my hair is instantly curly. Hair Heroes Argan Oil makes it super soft and somehow bouncy (that's a huge feat ladies as my hair is really stubborn and has a mind of its own).
I have already hoarded 3 bottles of this conditioner and am planning to get more. I just wish that Snoe will not discontinue this EVER!!!! The main reason I got around to blogging is because of this product. I wanted to be a blogger so that Snoe will get to invite me to bloggers events and will introduce me to their other products.
I can't ramble enough on how I love this conditioner. I so so so love it. I will just pay all my bills first and then hoard this again, perhaps on December. I still have 2 bottles remaining but I have a phobia of ever running out of this stuff (call me crazy).
Albeit not having sulfates, this conditioner contains silicone. But hey don't be a snob, silicone ain't that bad. I 've been using this for a month now and this has not weighed my hair down yet. If it ever comes to that point, I'll use an all natural clarifying conditioner care of baking soda and vinegar (post on that soon).
For now, I can confidently say that the quest for that elusive hair product is over. Thank you Hair Heroes, you saved me :-)
Value for money: 6/5
Effectiveness: 6/5 (Is that overkill already?)
