Old Wives Tail Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment | Review

I'm pretty good about avoiding added stress to my hair. I don't often curl it or blowdry it, and I've never colored it in all my life. Despite letting my hair run its natural course, which keeps it fairly healthy, I still like to use a deep conditioner to really bring it back to life - usually about once a week. I like to switch up what I use, that way my hair doesn't get too used to anything, so I was more than happy to give Old Wives Tail Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment a try.

This oil treatment is much different than anything I've ever tried. The consistency is that of a whipped argan lotion, and it's rather thick. I actually panicked that I had just put lotion in my hair until I ran back to look at it, only to be reassured it was hair oil. This Argan & Rosemary treatment has an herbal scent, strong when applied but it doesn't linger once washed out.

According to the Old Wives Tail website, "This unique blend of organic oils aid in protecting your tresses against weather and styling damage. This is the perfect natural treatment to use as a deep conditioner or just a few drops can be used before styling to smooth and protect your hair from breakage."

The directions are as follows: Use on damp hair and massage into your scalp. Leave the treatment on for one hour. Rinse with fresh water and shampoo. Repeat this process until your hair feels clean and product free. After shampooing you can use conditioner on the ends of your hair only. Rinse out thoroughly and style as normal.

The Old Wives Tail Organic Oil Treatment is nice, however I don't think it is game changing. I also don't often have time to use a treatment that requires an hour to set, and then to be rinsed out. I had to use a LOT of shampoo to fully get this out of my hair, and one rinse of it was not enough. I had to use shampoo and follow with a conditioner because my hair was a tangled mess and I could still feel the oil clinging to my hair. 

I will not continue to use this as an in-shower treatment, but rather I'll put a small amount in my hair as an overnight treatment because I don't want to deal with the hassle of overwashing my hair when I use this in the shower.

  1. Sounds interesting although I do t have the patience for an hour hair treatment either. I really love the loreal damage erase balm

    1. I so need to try the damage erase balm! I've tried the moisture one (the blue one?) and didn't love it, but hear good things about the other.
