Hask Argon Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

photo (1)

I had seen this shampoo and conditioner before in Penneys but didn’t really think much of it, I thought I might like to try that but just never got around to testing it out for myself. I remember everyone around Christmas time and a good while afterwards were raving about Moroccan oils and Moroccan oil shampoos but I still didnt buy into – I thought they were really over priced and inconvenient to purchase as they weren’t sold in my local supermarket. But this shampoo was sold in nearly all the Penneys around Dublin and it was always in the back of my mind to try it, plus it only cots €4.50 so cant really go wrong, can I?

Since I can remember I have always been a loyal Aussie haircare customer and even if I drifted away for awhile to try something new I always returned to them at their mercy. I just felt that they cleaned my hair so well and it always felt silky and more manageable after use. One of my all time favourite Aussie products is definitely their 3 Minute Miracle. This conditioner is just ground breaking in my opinion, you leave it in for 3 minutes and then rinse as usual and afterwards your hair feels super healthy, silky and soft. Using this conditioner is definitely as must in my beauty regime and I try to use this at least once a week. I would use it more often but as I have really fine hair I have to be careful as too much conditioning can essentially have the opposite affect and leave my hair limp and dull.0186569_l

Hence, although Hask Argon oil shampoo is quite a conditioning shampoo it doesn’t over do it. I feel like I could use this daily (which I do) and it doesn’t leave my hair heavy and limp from over conditioning, rather, it leaves it looking more restored and stronger. Most importantly though, it doesn’t weigh it down which actually would make my hair look thinner and lifeless but rather it kind of fluffs it up and makes it weightless which is AMAZING! I wouln’t say I’m totally having an affair on my Aussie shampoo rather just enjoying using this new brand 😉 But honestly Hask shampoo and conditioner is definitely becoming one of my favourite haircare products and is a whole €3.00 cheaper than Aussie!

I purchased the Repairing shampoo and conditioner which has the blue label and blue bottle cap. There was another Smoothing shampoo and conditioner option which had the pink label but I went with the Repairing option as my hair is very dry and brittle at the moment. My first impression of the shampoo was quite a good one I will tell you that. When I squeezed some of the shampoo on my hand in the shower it smelled absolutely incredible, it had such a strong aromatherapy smell of what I can only describe as a zesty citrus smell? In other words it just smells to die for!

Ive been on the hunt for a shampoo other than Aussie that will help restore my hair because I was away in California last summer for 3 months and the sun totally damaged my hair and it hasn’t really been the same since. Im sure years of bleaching has also taken its toll on my hair too which is why I’m currently in the process of toning down my hair to a more natural blonde. If you want to read my article on how and why Im doing that, you can read it here. I did hear before that the more you use the same products on your hair the less effect they will have as your hair can build a tolerance to hair products. Which is another reason why I wanted to try a new shampoo and conditioner. Im also off to Spain in, ahem, 4 DAYS!!! So I wanted a good moisturising shampoo and conditioner to use while Im over there. Ill definitely do a review of how or if this shampoo and conditioner helped with the salty water and heat!

Hask hair care products are also not tested on animals and are free of sulfates and parabens, Im not entirely sure what they are but I’m guessing thats a good thing 🙂 My hair is not in the best condition and is naturally thin so I’m trying everything I can to make my hair stronger and healthier without cutting it as I am on a mission to have long hair. Do you have any good advice regarding hair care that you swear by? If so don’t be afraid to comment below as I’d love to hear them.

You find all you need to know about any of the Hask products on their website here, but as far as I know you can only buy this brand in Penneys/Primark, I think.

    i picked the conditioner up in primark on a whim after spotting it wasn’t tested on animals, and i’m so pleased i did because i’ve really loved it so far! i’d actually been searching for months for cruelty free haircare that rivalled aussie and i think i’ve finally found it 🙂 i’m tempted to pick up the shampoo as well now you’ve spoken well of it!

      Well I’m really impressed with it so far, so I’d encourage you to purchase the shampoo too! I know, its such a huge plus that its cruelty free 🙂
