By now we have all heard the praises of argan oil, a veritable miracle for the hair. If your hair loves argan oil as much as mine does then you need to check out Marc Anthony, a very affordable hair care line that does argan oil right.
The Marc Anthony stylist team says, “We often look to beauty secrets of the past as inspiration for now. One of the greatest ancestral beauty secrets comes from Morocco – Argan Oil. It is really a ‘super oil’ because it has so many benefits – strengthening, moisturizing, shine, damage relief, and the list goes on. When you buy Argan Oil for your hair you’re getting one of the best natural resources for healthy looking hair.”
The BIZ was happy to be sent two products from Marc Anthony’s Oil of Morocco Argan Oil line – the Volumizing Mousse ($10.99) and Volume Shine Hairspray ($8.99). The products in this collection use a combination of Moroccan oil and keratin for awesome moisture, shine, and volume.
The Volumizing Mousse (250 ml / 8.3 fl.oz.) is a beautifully thick, creamy foam mousse. Argan oil and keratin keep hair strong, healthy, and hydrated, not to mention full of body. When I use this my hair is super soft and not crunchy at all. The mousse also gives my hair wonderful hold and shine.
It’s just a ton of fun to spray the airy mousse into your hand and watch it expand, so much so that it’s tempting to use too much. You only need a dollop smoothed through damp hair. If you want super volume concentrate your application on the root area. It works great for all hair types and styles including air-dried, blown dry, straight, wavy, or curly.
The Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray (300 ml / 8.8 oz.) is a terrific hairspray that isn’t water-based so it dries very quickly. It doesn’t get crunchy and doesn’t flake. It has a medium hold that you can brush through.
For the look below, I first applied the mousse then sectioned my hair and did my blow dry dance using this large round brush:
Once my hair was dry I lifted sections to spray with hairspray. Just spraying hairspray over the top of my hairstyle can weigh down my thin, fine strands. By spraying underneath I get extra lift and volume. Volume Shine Hairspray is lightweight so it doesn’t leave you with helmet head. Plus the hairspray is a mist, not a ‘spray’, which helps keep it natural feeling and looking.
Marc Anthony products are easily found online and at Ulta, Walgreens, and CVS in the US and at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. It’s available internationally as well. This is a fantastic, affordable hair care line that you should definitely give a whirl. - Lisa
