Redken All-Soft Argan Oil-6: Put To The Test


At some point, we've all purchased something whose results were, er, questionable, and didn't live up to our expectations or deliver the results we were so boldly promised. But no more! For the sake of you and your hard-earned money, The Huffington Post Canada Style team is putting the latest products to the test every week.

Testing:Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil

Tested By: Arti Patel, Associate Editor

Price: $35, 90ml

What It Is: Softening hair oil for brittle hair.

How To: Apply the oil with your hands on damp or dry hair, massaging it into your roots and ends. I often did this before blow drying my hair.

What We Thought: With the changing season, my hair tends to dry out. After using the oil about seven to eight times every other day (and washing my hair) I did notice my hair felt more hydrated and, generally, softer. My roots and ends were in better shape, too -- even after using a heated iron. The oil is very lightweight, which won't make your locks look or feel heavy.

The Downfalls: Applying the product can get messy, especially with the spray-like applicator. I would recommend applying it in your bathroom and washing your hands with soap and water as soon as you massage the oil into your hair.

Final Remarks: If you're looking for a way to fix your dry, dead hair, using a hair oil is definitely the way to go.
