Spending more time at home can take its toll on hair. Missing routine treatments and trims at the salon can lead to increasingly dry and brittle hair, putting it in need of some serious TLC. For years, the iconic OGX Argan Oil of Morocco collection has made at-home styling a breeze thanks to argan oil – the gold standard of hair oils – which is the star component of the line’s hydrating formulas. In celebration of the collection’s 10-year anniversary, we tapped lead OGX hairstylist Kahh Spence to share his favourite ways to incorporate the collection into any hair routine.
LATHER, RINSE, REPEAT
Great hair starts in the shower. The first step to bringing parched hair back to life is a deep cleanse followed by a nourishing conditioner. OGX Extra Strength Hydrate & Repair + Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner features a mix of Moroccan argan oil and silk proteins to strengthen and restore shine to hair. For low-porosity hair, Spence suggests reducing shampoo sessions to minimize dryness while still conditioning twice a week to maintain moisture levels.
?Hydrated hair is less prone to breakage – that’s why a conditioning mask can make all the difference when it comes to healthy-looking hair. The ultra-rich ingredients in OGX Extra Strength Hydrate & Repair + Argan Oil of Morocco Hair Mask seal in moisture from root to tip, keeping hair smooth all day. Need an extra boost? “Take the OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil and warm it up in a bowl for a few seconds,” says Spence. “It functions like a hot-oil treatment and the moisture penetrates [the hair], rejuvenating the ends.”
No matter your hair type, OGX Extra Strength Shine & Revitalize + Argan Oil of Morocco Dry Oil Shine Mist will deliver irresistible shine without weighing it down. Just shake and spray, and voila: glistening hair that’s soft to the touch. The best part? You can get your hands on the entire line at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
GET THE LOOK: POLISHED PONYTAILS
“I love to use OGX Extra Strength Shine & Revitalize + Argan Oil of Morocco Multi-Benefit Hairspray to [create] a really snatched ponytail,” says Spence. Start off by brushing out the hair and pulling it back into a high pony to create a lifted effect. To lock in the look, add a generous spritz of the Multi-Benefit Hairspray and lightly blow-dry the product in place. For an ultra-polished finish, wrap a section of hair around the base of the ponytail and fasten with a bungee hook.
Middle-parted, slicked-down ponytails are effortlessly glamorous. Spence outlines three simple steps for achieving the classic look. First, create an even centre part. Next, tame fly-aways with the Multi-Benefit Hairspray. Finally, secure the ponytail near the nape of the neck. Elevate the final look with OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil to add a boost of glassy shine.
