My hair stylist Sally Saito turned me onto Moroccanoil before it was cool, but I’ve ditched it in favor of organic coconut oil (yep, the same you’d cook with. And I mean you — I don’t cook). A rain drop-sized amount of coconut oil kills frizz better than Moroccanoil (or too-heavy, ancient-beauty-secret argan oil, which is Moroccanoil’s marketing magic ingredient [their real secret sauce is cosmetic-grade silocones]).
Organic coconut oil has been proven to penetrate your hair’s cuticle like no other conditioner, makes a great body and face moisturizer during winter, and my German
Shedder Shepherd Major Dukes eats it to keep his hair glossy.
The only way I’d feel better about using organic coconut oil for my hair is if it cost $199 a jar. Paying $9.99 for a hair product is just ridick…
Argan oil, a billion-year-old Moroccan beauty treatment, is a trademark ingredient of Josie Maran’s beauty line, including Josie Maran Natural Volume Lip Gloss. Says sales copy on Sephora.com, “To plump the lips, there is a naturally occurring tripeptide that has been shown to visually enhance the lips by stimulating lip collagen.”

I wish I’d bought Kae Pro 100% organic argan oil instead of Josie Maran 100% argan oil. At $6.80 an ounce, Kae Pro 100% organic argan oil makes Josie Maran’s argan oil 100% a rip-off.
True, Josie Maran’s argan oil is housed in a recycled glass bottle that somehow benefits an orphan Madonna hasn’t adopted yet.
Save your dough with Kae Pro argan oil, and slip some cash to a charity of your choice…
I’m not a fan of natural beauty, nor do I believe it exists. Natural beauty is a painful myth perpetuated by ugly chicks who hate how they look. Beauty is built with brains, swagger, and –
So naturally, I’m trying Josie Maran 100% argan oil not because it’s a travel-friendly, organic, billion-year-old moisturizer for your face, hair, and hands, but because for $28 an ounce Josie Maran’s argan oil is almost as expensive as getting needled in 90210 — which means it must be effective.
And I would know.
I used to visit a Beverly Hills medi spa that worked with Dr. Jiffy Lube, the Argentine faux doc who pumped automobile-grade ingredients into Priscilla Presley’s bloated lips…
