Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Argan Oil

Moroccan Oil for less!

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products (and their high-end equivalent!) that’s available online or in-stores. This week, we’re chatting argan oil for your hair.

You can’t deny that Moroccanoil has really dominated the argan oil market, but at $43 there were bound to be beauty dupes.

So what is it? Moroccanoil is a hair treatment that basically got the buzz going on how we should ALL be utilizing argan oil for its restorative properties. The product itself can be used as a styler, conditioner and, my personal favorite, a frizz-fighter once your hair is dry!

The thing is, personally, I can’t bring myself to spend $43 on something that, guess what, has a drugstore equivalent. I recently discovered Dove Nourishing Oil Care Anti-Frizz Serum, which gets me pretty much exactly the same results…and for only $14.45 (1.35 oz)!

Same soft, shiny, frizz-free hair - for a lot less cash!

Have you found a Moroccanoil dupe for less? Let me know in the comments!

Kind of a Moroccanoil dupe is the Suave Moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner line. That stuff is awesome!

I like Fructis Moroccan Sleek & Shine. I put it on my hair about 15 minutes BEFORE I use my regular shampoo & conditioner, no flyaways! Plus they almost always have $1 off coupons in the Sunday paper!

I've tried a few now, and my favorite so far has been Garnier® Fructis® Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment. It didn't weigh my hair down at all, just made it feel healthy and shiny. My least favorite was the Suave one, it's smell was a little off and it was too heavy and oily. I'm curious to try the Organix one next.

To be honest, I can't bring myself to spend $43 on an "argan oil" product when the primary ingredient is traditional silicones.

I can get 100% argan oil for less $.
