Better than Moroccan Oil brand,
This review is from: Agadir Argan Oil Spray Treatment, 5.1-Ounce (Misc.)
This is an excellent product for all hair types. I like it even better than the Moroccan Oil brand because the smell is lighter (a little sweeter and less musky) and the spray bottle makes it easier to apply. Because it is a spray application, the formula itself is lighter than what you would find in the original bottled form. I prefer this because it doesn't make my hair feel greasy or weigh it down in uneven sections (like Moroccan Oil did).
The spray is also great for using with a flat iron. Unlike other glossers or moisturizers (like Biosilk, for instance) Agadir Argan Oil is not a silicone and won't just cling on to the surface of the hair strand. Spritz it onto each section before you straighten (or curl) and your hair will absorb the oil, protecting it from being fried by heat tools. This spray is well worth the money for me. Give it a try!

Argan Oil Spray 5.1 is supposed to have UV coverage. Is it UVA or UVB? No one seems to mention this important fact.

It's got Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (which is also known as Octinoxate) in it. I think that's mostly UVB. But I don't think UVA vs UVB protection matters much for hair... It's not like skin where UVA protection is really important to prevent aging. Hair grows out and you cut it off. The UV protection is only so it doesn't get too dry or fade your color if you dye your hair.
BTW, to the OP Brittany, this hair oil basically IS a silicone glosser with a little argan oil in it. The first three ingredients in there are silicones.

I have long, thin (thin!), straight hair. Two stylists have told me completely opposing things about oils to help my hair: Yes, you must -- NO, never do it. argh.
Is this meant for Caucasian hair or African hair? Or does it matter? In pharmacies, I notice entire sections of hair products that appear to be meant for African hair textures, so I am not sure if I should buy them or not - meaning, if they will work on my Caucasian hair :-)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
