Arvazallia Hair Products Review


arvazallia-hair-care arvazallia-hydrating-oil-mask arvazallia-premium-argan-oil-hair-treatment I have been loving my new hair cut, and the balayage I got a couple months ago, but it’s summer now, and my hair needs an extra UMPF! So in my attempts to beef it up, I have been searching for new hair products, that would help it. That’s when I came across Arvazallia (or they came across me on Brand Backer). Today I am going to share my tips and reviews on these two products: Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment and Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask Before I even started using the products, the brand representative filled me in on how to use them. That was so helpful, since sometimes, there are many ways of using one product, but there is not enough room to list it on the packaging.

Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment

• Makes frizzy and difficult hair Soft, Silky, and Easier to Manage
• Awakens dull hair by giving it a Magnificent Shine
• Nourishes, Restores, and Strengthens over-processed, damaged, and brittle hair
• Residue-free oil Absorbs Quickly and Leaves Hair Feeling Light and Smelling Great
• Moisturizes dry scalp and Protects from harmful UV rays
• Heat Protectant that protects your hair from damage caused by hair irons
• Enhances color treatments to ensure an even application

This is a very versatile treatment that can be used many ways. We recommend to get the maximum results for your hair that you apply it to damp or towel-dried hair and then reapplying after styling. 

Step 1: Pump 2-4 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together.

Step 2: Run your fingers through your hair working the oil throughout your hair beginning from the root and working outward towards the ends. If you have naturally oily scalp or longer hair, you can apply from mid-length downward and then work your way up towards the roots.

Step 3: Allow your hair to air dry or you can blow dry your hair and style as usual. Because of the detangling effects of the oil it helps to improve drying time. It also acts as a heat protectant and helps protect your hair from heat damage when blow drying or using hair irons.

Step 4: After you’ve finished drying and styling your hair, apply another 1-2 pumps of oil using the same process to control loose out of place hair and to further condition your hair and give it a beautiful and radiant shine.

My experience: This is a great smelling product in beautiful packaging. I also feel like I don’t have to use as much of it. It’s often hard to remember to use a small amount of product for me. I tend to overuse everything.

Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask

• Deeply Conditions, Hydrates, and Moisturizes Hair Giving it a Soft and Silky Texture
• Repairs, Restores, and Strengthens weak, damaged, and over-processed hair
• Revives Dull and Dry Hair Improving its Manageability and Elasticity and giving it a Beautiful Shine
• Nourishes Hair with the Highest Quality Cosmetic Grade Argan Oil Rich in Essential Vitamins and Nutrients 
• Protects and Shields Hair from Damage Caused by Heat Styling

How to apply: Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Mask should be used in place of your hair conditioner. Apply a generous amount of the mask to clean shampooed hair that is still damp or lightly towel-dried. Comb the treatment through your hair to allow it to be evenly distributed throughout your hair. Allow it to absorb into your hair for 5 to 7 minutes and then thoroughly rinse the mask from your hair. Next style your hair as usual.
How often to use: Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Mask should only be used 1-2 times per week.

Maximizing Your Results: For deeper conditioning, restoration, and to further improve manageability and shine following the mask treatment, apply 1-3 pumps of Arvazallia Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment to your hair after styling.

For Thick or Coarse Hair: For very thick or coarse hair you can add and mix in 2-4 Pumps of Arvazallia Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment to the Mask prior to applying it to further improve manageability, elasticity, and shine. My experience: I love using this mask in place of my conditioner. Once again, it helps me not to overuse products. I keep a plastic wide tooth comb (I got from Gift with Purchase at Estee Lauder) in my bathroom just for that. Overall these products are definitely benefiting my hair. And if I were to pick a favorite, I wouldn’t be able to do that, because both of them are now an essential part of my hair care routine.  The biggest downside for me though is that these products are made in China. I searched my stash high and low and only found one other product (out of hundreds) that is made there as well.

Haircare Products that Worked for Me or My Hair History

Once, an old friend of mine said that he can tell what year it is by looking at a picture of me, because I had different hair every year, sometimes, every season.

I first got highlights for my HS graduation, and it has been going on ever since. I only grew out my natural hair color once, kept it for two months, hated it, and went back to highlights! After all the DIY DYE jobs, highlights from the box, and color enhancers, I decided to finally outgrow my natural hair color in the summer of 2009, and it only took me a little over a year!

Now throughout that year I tried all possible and impossible growth enhancer, store and home made hair treatments, gave up hair products containing SLS, and walked around Manhattan with what I believe to be the worst hair out there!

My other reason was – my wedding, I wanted to have great hair for the BIG DAY!

Now these are the products I have been using, that have done the job, this is what my hair looks like now!

My friend Brianna and me a couple weeks ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have tried the following homemade remedies:

-Honey water

-Olive oil

-Eating certain hair foods (avocados, a lot of vegetables, eggs, salmon, nuts)

I have also taken some hair vitamins, my advice – buy them on sale!

These are my fav hair care products to this day!

1. Burt’s Bees

I fell in love with these and got my fiance hooked on the shampoo and conditioner too. The scents are amazing, especially the Avocado mask! And there are 4 different kinds of shampoos for all different hair types. Now a lot of people complain that Burt’s Bees shampoo doesn’t lather up, it won’t give you as much foam as a regular SLS containing shampoo, but it will wash out all the grease and dirt in your hair. Do you know how to check if your hair is clean? It should squeak when you give it a little pull near the roots!

2. Whole Foods Brand Shampoo and Conditioner

I bought the big bottles of both for only $ 4.99 each! Personally I think this is an amazing alternative to Burt’s Bees, if you are trying to save, but still want to be nice to your hair. Of course I ran out of conditioner faster than shampoo, but it’s not a big deal, always happens! I used the Mint scented shampoo, because my hair is greasy, I have also tried lavender scented body lotion and citrus body wash. So far the citrus is the only one I wouldn’t try again. Again, the shampoo doesn’t lather up as well, but gets the job done!

3. Nature’s Gate Conditioner

I bought a 32 oz of this conditioner at     TJMaxx for $7.99, and couldn’t have been happier. It is for color treated hair, but worked just as fine on mine! Another advice on buying haircare products that are pricey – check out discount stores, they usually have a great selection on both Salon Brands, and Natural Products.

4. Say Yes to Carrots Mask

Smells great, feels great, the only thing is that I didn’t like as much – having to keep it in for about 12 minutes. I usually prefer hair treatments that need to be kept in for 5 minutes tops. I know that some of you might disagree, and I knew a girl who would deep condition her hair for an hour every other day. If you have that spare hour – do it, unfortunately I don’t.

5. Organix Instant Repair Treatment

I bought this one, because it was on sale. But the smell, oh the smell alone, I have never regretted this purchase again. It worked great, because this is a repair treatment, and I was using it when I have already outgrown my natural color, but had bleached ends. Now why didn’t I just cut the ends off? The hair cut would’ve been too short for me, and I always felt comfortable with longer hair!

6. This last one isn’t organic, and unfortunately contains SLS, but it really makes your hair shine!

I freecycled a giant bottle of Nexxus shampoo, and even though it contains SLS I feel comfortable using it on my hair now, because I feel like it has completely recovered and because I also believe in freecycling, and using something up instead of throwing it away. Now when you freecycle body and hair care products always check the expiration date! The last thing you want to do is ruin your hair even more!

And finally, I just wanted to show you what my hair looked like in the beginning!
