Another hair oil, you might have noticed we're huge fans; check out S's post on hair oils here! I also gushed about Moroccan Oil and the Kerastase Elixir in my Hair Care Routine post. So obviously when I saw the little bottles of Argan Oil in Penny's (Primark) I was intrigued but I just assumed they'd be awful and watered down.
Ya I had to get technical with this but when I looked at the ingredients of both I was shocked at the similarity so I felt I had to compare them side by side and basically they're the exact same. The first 3 ingredients are the same so I'd imagine the quantities are similar. FYI Cyclopentasiloxane and and Dimethicone are silicones.
Also the Hask oil has Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and Keratin Amino Acids, which the Moroccan Oil doesn't, now I'm not a tricologist but I'd imagine they're pretty good for your hair. I love vitamin E for my skin, using externally or taken in supplements so I like the idea of my hair getting some too.
Also because the Hask comes in an 18ml vial I wanted to work out exactly what the price difference was. At almost a third or the price I'm completely convinced, the Hask is the way to go.
Travel wise I don't think either are very portable, the Moroccan Oil has leaked any time I've wanted to bring it anywhere plus it's glass so there's always the fear of it breaking. The hask has a pop off lid so I'd be afraid of it coming off but it's easily popped into a little bag.
This has become more of a comparison of Moroccan Oil vs Hask Argan Oil than the review I'd intended but there's not much more to say about any argan oil that hasn't already been said. I like it and it does much the same job as my pricier alternatives plus it's easily available, I'm pretty sure every town in Ireland has a Penny's right?
Two thumbs up from me!
