It’s not often that I look forward to a specific new range of items coming to my home in order for me to review, but Creightons new haircare products was one such time. The shampoo, conditioner, hair masque, heat defence spray and hair oil are all part of the Argan range of new haircare products from this British company. Five years ago, I would have thought that something made of ‘argan’ was akin to some kind of krypton-like metal, but now that the nourishing properties of argan have been discovered, the ranges are out in force.
The first thing I noticed, apart from being a British make (rare these days!) is that these treatments are a lot cheaper than most High Street brands, and are generally bigger sizes too. The shampoo and conditioner are both £1.99 each and the other items, although available through their website are only £2.99 each, so a massive saving compared to my regular brands. I tried the shampoo and hair masque first, then doused my hair in the heat defence spray before straightening my hair. The shampoo lathered up nicely and cleaned my hair, and the concentrated hair masque felt very luxurious. I had to blow dry my hair so it was worth using the defence spray. The directions said to use liberally but I found that a little bit less was better. The second time I used the products, I used the shampoo, conditioner and hair oil. Again, the hair oil goes a long way, so it’s worth noting that you only need a little bit!
After two washed and conditioning and protecting with all the products, (blow dried both times) my normally frizzy, curly hair is much smoother. It’s easier to straighten as well, and the products aren’t heavy in my hair. My layers looked bouncy and had some life to them that other conditioners don’t leave, and the smell is a pleasant almost-salon-product smell without being over powering or too florally. I would definitely buy these products again, and I think over time there would be more of a long-term effect.
