REVIEW: Organix Dry Weightless Argan Oil Of Morocco

Oil can be very beneficial to hair. It is very smart, especially if you have curly hair, to use oil on your hair because certain oils can penetrate the hair shaft and moisturize from the inside out.

I have my go to oils but I like to try new ones every now and then.

This is one of the oils that I tried that I really like. Argan oil is fantastic for hair, if you would like to see my post on oils click here, and I have tried different avenues for it. One of my favorites being the dry oil from Organix.

What is really great about this product is that it is a spray. I have found that sprays tend to be lighter which is good because it does not cause as much buildup. Also if you have thinner hair like me then it will not weigh your hair down. Also, it is easier to apply because it is a spray

Another thing that I like about this product is the smell. Argan oil by itself has a great smell but I like that even with the added ingredients the smell is not over powering.

Moving on to how I use this product on my hair, it has a very different uses for me. The first is that I use it as a moisturizer. I tend to focus it more on my ends because they are drier than the rest of my hair but I notice that it does improve the quality of them.

Next I also use this product as a heat protectant when I straighten or blow dry my hair. Again focusing it more on my ends.

Sometimes I also use this product as a leave in for after I get out of the shower and do not feel like doing anything to my hair right away.

This product leaves my hair feeling, soft, smooth and moisturized without making it feel greasy and weighed down.

The last few things I love about this product, as with all Organix products, are the ingredients and the price.

Since Organix is an all natural line they do not use any kind of harsh chemicals in their products which is great for curly hair.

Also the price is great, under $7 if I am not mistaken.

Pros:
Good ingredients
Nice smell
Multiple uses
Spray form
Lightweight but moisturizing

Cons: 
N/A

March Favorites!

This March I really did not get to try as many products and I would have liked to but I did try two conditioners that I really liked and made it into my favorites.

Let's get started.

First is the Suave conditioner and I tried the coconut scent.

I started using this conditioner after I ran out of my Organix coconut conditioner. What I like about it is that it does not have any harsh chemicals (sulfates, silicones etc.) that can be really bad for hair. Also it is a great price especially for how much product that you get.

Tresemmé Naturals is another conditioner that I have been using lately and I have been using these two conditioners together. I really like the mixture of these conditioners. Just like the Suave, this conditioner has no harsh chemicals and is really cheap but a huge container.

The reason I don't not have many favorites these month is because I am really starting to crack down on what I choose.

Have you tried/would like to try these conditioners? Let me know in the comments.

Be safe and I will see you in my next post.

MAKEUP MONDAY: Green/Gold EOTD


For this Makeup Monday post I decided to try a green and gold eye shadow look that would not be too overwhelming.

It's really simple, let's get started.

First I prime my eyes of course. As you all know I do not use regular eye shadow primer I just use my Cinema Touch foundation.


Yes it looks crazy know but it gets better.

Next I take a gold color from my Italia Deluxe Color Chart and I apply that to my lid and also to my inner corners.


Next I take a green color from that same palette and apply it to my crease and also create a strong cat eye with it. Also I apply it under my water line.


Then I take my Starlooks eye liner pencil and line my water line. Also I take my liquid eyeliner and line my lid and create a cat eye along the green eye shadow.


Finally I just take my Boots 97 mascara and apply a million coats of it.


I apologize for the crazy look in my eyes.

I got a lot of great comments for this look and I was really happy with it and if you guys try it out tweet me/instagram a picture and use the hashtag #ebonyjaymakeupmonday.

What do you guys think of this look? Let me know in the comments!

Be safe and I will see you in my next post!
