After an 11 hour flight from New York to Honolulu, my hair was crunchy and since you don’t want to be in Paradise with crunchy hair…
Thankfully, I found a Sephora near the hotel. A really sweet – and absolutely gorgeous – sales gal suggested this JOSIE MARAN ARGAN OIL HAIR SERUM, which has argan oil along with lots of other natural ingredients – Vitamin E, jojoba oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil – that are also well known to be great for nourishing and moisturizing hair. Plus, it is also made without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan. Sold.
The serum is ultralight and alcohol-free. It doesn’t feel greasy, more slippery. The scent of geranium and bergamot fruit oils is really subtle, kind of uplifting. But the important thing – it did the trick! You just warm up a couple dabs in your hands, then work into towel-dried hair. The argan oil naturally penetrates the hair and moisturizes it. Hair looks instantly smoother, shinier, healthier – even without blow drying. I was pretty impressed.
Now I am ready for an evening in Waikiki!
