Naturally Stellar | Review: Hask Argan Oil & Keratin Protein Hair Care Lines
Hopefully wherever you are the crazy winter weather is slowly mellowing out in preparation for Spring. I know here in Nashville, it’s gonna be a beautiful week with warm temps and some sunshine, while my siblings that are in New York are still dealing with snow and up and down temps. I think it’s safe to say that we are ALL ready for winter to just go away! Well, while we’re all waiting, it’s time to get our Spring time beauty products stocked & ready.
Caring for our hair this spring may include doing some damage control & repair of any winter stress we’ve caused to our strands. So this review is right on time!
Hask Beauty sent me this nice bath caddy filled with their products to try and then to share my opinion on. So, today I’m going to be focusing on Hask Beauty’s Argan Oil & Keratin Protein Hair Care Lines.
Because my hair can’t take a lot of protein treatments or protein products, during my test/trial period I decided to just stick to trying 1 of the lines. So I will focus this review strictly on the Argan Oil Line and share my grade with you, but I will let you know about the details of the Protein line as well, in case you’re thinking about trying it. Hey, I may even decide to give the Keratin Protein set away.
First, let me tell you a little about both lines. All of the Shampoos & Conditioners you see here are free of:
- Artificial Colors.
The Keratin Protein line was formulated to help restore hair that has become lifeless and dry-looking due to excessive heat styling, over-styling or color treatments. It has hydrolyzed Keratin to help stop frizz and block humidity. It also claims to smooth & detangle hair leaving it with a healthy shine. You’ll see ingredients like Coconut Oil, Panthenol, Olive Oil, Keratin Amino Acids, Sesame Seed Oil, Jojoba, Soy Protein,Corn Protein, Collagen, Shea Butter and Hydrolyzed Keratin. So if your hair is dry, frizzy or color-treated then this would be the correct product to try for added strength.
The Argan Oil line has ingredients to help tackle damage. In addition to helping to revive your hair, much like the protein products, it has plenty of oils aimed at softening your strands, making it much easier to detangle. This one claims to revive and restore and transform even the most rebellious hair to frizz-free, soft and shiny beauty. It has ingredients such as, Moroccan Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Soybean Protein, Wheat Protein, Soy Protein, Corn Protein and Keratin. These products have less Keratin than the KP line, So this line of products works best for over-processed, damaged or really frizzy hair.
The Argan Oil Shampoo has a very creamy consistency and it lathers up really well. It has glycerin in it, so it has a lot of “slip” for finger detangling. This worked very well to remove any product build-up on my hair or scalp without leaving my hair feeling stripped or stiff after rinsing. It also has a nice pleasant smell, kind of light and fruity. The Argan Oil Conditioner is a medium-thick cream. What I mean by that is if you tip the bottle upside down, it doesn’t slide out very easily. You have to use a little shake and squeeze to get it out. I like that! I really like a nice thick conditioner as opposed to thin runny ones. This stayed on while I took my shower without dripping into my face or running down my back. I left it on for about 5 minutes and gave my hair a rinse. My hair came out moisturized, shiny and even though the product had a lot of proteins in it, my hair still had some elasticity.
I then tried the Argan Oil Deep Conditioner Pack. I applied it to my hair while damp and left it on for a few hours. For some reason, I can never leave a deep conditioner on for 10 minutes, like the directions say. I always end up doing something around the house that requires my time, while my conditioning cap is on. I like the thick consistency of the deep treatment. I do wish I had a little bit more though since my hair is thick & spongy. I don’t think the performance of this conditioner is better than my go-to deep treatment, so I probably won’t buy this, but it did work as it claimed.
Oh, let me mention, that I did use my Hask Hair Band to bundle up my hair both in the shower and under my conditioning cap, during my deep treatment. I like it because it’s convenient and simply does the job of holding my hair without the worry of pulling strands.
Lastly I used the Repairing Shine Oil on my hair before letting it air dry. It did provide a nice light sheen but I didn’t feel like it added much value to the rest of the products. When used as directed, it’s not at all heavy. It did add a little shine to my hair, but then again, so would any light natural oil of my choice. I don’t like the added ingredients in the shine oil, I wish it was just natural oils without all the extra additives, so I probably won’t use this product going forward. It just doesn’t move me.
I love how my hair came out with the Shampoo & Conditioner alone. I felt that the Deep treatment & shine oil didn’t add much value to me and I didn’t feel like my hair was restored or revived because of these, however they did add shine.
Overall, I think these products performed as claimed. The shampoo and conditioner worked great. I think I’ll keep these in my arsenal. I love that they are full of natural oils & ingredients, so that’s an added plus. Like I said, I probably won’t buy the deep treatment pack because I have a restorative deep treatment that performs much better on my hair and the shine oil isn’t something I’d want to purchase. If I could make a judgement based on the shampoo & conditioner alone, this would get high marks from me, but in fairness to grading the line, I give the Hask Argan Oil line a B-
