IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE: That almost all of the high end ARGAN oil hair care products on the market contain silicone and are watered down with less expensive oils. The silicones added to ARGAN hair care products nullifies their usefulness.

JOICO’S BLONDE LIFE: Hair care line appears to be one of the worst offenders. Its branded as a restorative hair care line but includes all of the worst offenders listed above. You may as well wash your hair with dish-soap and rinse it with silicone rather than wasting your money on Joico’s BLONDE LIFE line of hair care products.

NOTE: When you are looking to purchase Argan oil which is is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.) your best bet is to buy 100% pure Argan oil from a health food store. Make sure that it is COSMETIC grade and packaged in either a blue or brown glass container. The dark glass prevents the beneficial properties in Argan oil from breaking down.
