Argan oil comes from a tree and is rich in Vitamin E, carotenes, essential fatty acids, and other good stuff. It has been touted as being a restorative miracle for hair and skin conditions.
So when I caught wind of the Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner, I was pretty psyched to try them out.
I’ve been testing them out for over 2 weeks now, so I feel confident about sharing my experience with you now.
As you may already know, I have tresses that need to be tamed on a daily basis with a flat iron. And if you’ve followed Swatch And Learn on Twitter, you may have seen my tweet about how my hair is the best indicator for humidity, unfortunately because it gets frizzy.
So did these two Organix Argan oil products perform miracles on my hair? Do they live up to the hype? Find out!

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo Review
I’m not a fan of the aroma at all. I’ve tried the Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Shampoo, Conditioner and Silk Serum before and although I wasn’t big on the smell of those, either, at least it was way more subtle.
The Argan Oil Shampoo has a very bold floral fragrance that reminds me of what you’d smell when walking into a salon. Some people love that smell, but unfortunately, I’m not one of them because strong scents tend to give me headaches.
After rinsing it out, the smell doesn’t linger as strongly.
Consistency & Formula
The Organix Argan Oil Shampoo has a very silky, slippery consistency to it, and it’s a pearly bronze color. Lathers very well and creates a lot of bubbles.
The shampoo is paraben-free, so if you’re trying to avoid that ingredient, you’re in luck!
What Does It Do to My Hair?
Every shampoo I’ve ever tried doesn’t make my hair smooth or silky. And this one wasn’t an exception. I always have to follow-up my shampoo with a good conditioner or I’m left with Scarecrow Hair that’s reminiscent of straw.
After I washed my hair with the Organix shampoo, it had that squeaky-clean feel to it. I’m not a fan of that feeling because it often means your hair has been stripped of its natural oils that keep it healthy.
The bottle shape is pretty ugly and dated – reminds me of the 1980s. But when it comes to haircare, how pretty the outside looks doesn’t really matter to me. It’s what’s inside that counts. (This warm-fuzzy message was brought to you by Mary! Hehe)
The color of the bottle is a gorgeous blue that’s almost turquoise. It has a hideous gold/bronze flip-open cap to dispense the product.
Yeah, this isn’t packaging that you’ll buy because it looks nice.
But on the upside, according to the back of the bottle, Organix says that their “bottles are eco-friendly, manufactured from materials containing recycled post-consumer resin” and that “all labels are printed utilizing environmental inks and compostable label film made from annually renewable resource corn, not from petrochemicals”! I think that’s awesome!
Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner Review
The Organix Argan Oil Conditioner has the same floral-salon smell as the shampoo except it’s a tad more subtle, but it’s still very noticeable, and I don’t like it.
Thankfully when you rinse it out, the fragrance fades extremely quickly to the point where I can’t really smell it anymore, especially after I’ve dried and styled my hair…unless I literally put my hair to my nostrils and take a deep breath. (Yeah, a lovely sight, I’m sure.)
Consistency & Formula
It’s a lightweight whitish cream that didn’t weigh my hair down. After shampooing, I put this on and let it sit for a few minutes while I washed the rest of my body. When I rinsed it out, it made my hair feel slightly softer and smoother, but the difference wasn’t as dramatic as the one I noticed when using the Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Shampoo, Conditioner and Silk Serum.
The Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner is both sulfate-free and paraben-free, so those who are interested in avoiding those ingredients will be happy to hear that.
Same thoughts on this packaging as I mentioned above in the shampoo review.
What Does It Do to My Hair?
After drying and styling my hair, I felt that the Organix Argan Oil Conditioner did make it feel softer and smoother. It didn’t straighten my hair or seal the cuticle, though, because I still had to use my flat iron (as usual) to straighten it to make it sleeker.
Without using this conditioner, my hair would definitely look drier and coarser, so I do think it does work, but as I said before, it’s a slight difference.
Final Verdict: 6/10
Had it not been for the really strong fragrance, I would’ve rated this product better. And if it delivered a knock-out performance by really taming my hair, it would’ve also scored higher.
This is an okay product – not something I’d highly recommend, but not something that I would say is garbage, either. If you have healthier and more manageable hair than I do, this may do wonders for you. Unfortunately, my hair needs serious TLC or it acts like a Troublesome Two-Year-Old.
Do you use any Argan-oil products? Do they work for you? Have you tried anything from the Organix haircare line?
