Argan oil that is CG?

I'm curious about argan oil, but can't seem to find any products with it that don't have a ton of 'cones in them.

(My mama started using Moroccan oil and she's raving about it, but she's not CG and she uses sulphate shampoos.)

I'm thinking argan might make a great sealer--but I don't want any 'cones.

Has anyone found an argan oil product with no 'cones?

    Shea Terra Organics makes a pure argan oil - no cones, nothing but argan oil.

    I know that Argan Oil is AMAZING for the skin, wrinkles etc. It's actually one of the new and trendy ingredients in skin care right now.

    It's in this Shea Moisture treatment masque I just got as well. I can't imagine it'd be harmful since I've heard so many great things about what it does for people's complexions.

    I'm pretty sure you can get this pretty cheap (straight Argan Oil that is) from websites that sell cosmetic ingredients.

    Pure argan oil is great! I use a few drops with my leave-in or styling product for hair, and also mix it with my facial moisturizer. I order mine from Henna Sooq. It is expensive but you only need a tiny amount.

    Thanks, all! I definitely just want to buy pure Argan oil. I have enough other products. I just want it to add a couple drops for sealing. I'm sure I'll use it on my skin too...so it will be a worthy investment. :toothy10:

    I'm all for argan oil, if I can find it in a product not loaded with cones. I just tried a drop or two of Soelle argan oil
    http://soellebeauty.com/cart/ mixed with my leave in conditioner. I got it as a rather generous sample at Whole Foods. I wonder if you all were aware of the way it is harvested? Not for the squeamish.

    I was in Morocco this summer and i stocked up on Argan oil at the souk (market). It was dirt cheap compared to prices here in Europe. It doesn't smell nice at all but the smell doesn't linger so i don't mind so much. I just apply 3 squirts in the palm of my hands and seal with it. That and JBCO are my fav oils by far!
    Haven't used it on my face yet, only on my hair but i really love it. I just wished it smelled better....

    A girl at the hammam washed my hair with an argan oil based shampoo and then applied a rhassoul clay mask (when she started touching my hair i was like "noo no noooooooo honey, don't touch my hair!", but then that was part of the package) and although the shampoo had sulfates and dried my hair a bit, the rhassoul was great and really moisturized my hair. Got some clay but that drying shampoo isn't touching my precious hair anymore!

    Aaaanywho, i digress... I wouldn't buy any argan oil based products, your best option is to use the oil pure.

    Can't really tell you where you could buy it but i can tell you it's GREAT stuff and your hair should love it. It's really light and penetrates the hair straight away.
