Product Review: Design Essentials Hydrience Argan Moisturizing Creme

Design Essentials Moisturizing Creme

I was sent this lovely product a while ago and I decided not to rush myself to post a review, because I wanted to make sure I used the product thoroughly before posting a review.I have about a few good squeezes of this product left, so yeah I’ve pretty much used the entire tube. To wrap it up in one phrase. I love this product!! Unlike most moisturizers it’s not heavy and I absolutely love that about this product. It adds instant moisture and shine to my hair and it doesn’t weigh it down. That was most important to me when using this product, because when I want to wear my hair down and in s simple style I don’t want it to be weighted down or greasy.  The product smells absolutely amazing and not at all over bearing. Most scented products can cause a odd smell after a few days of use, that was not the case with this product.

I recently color treated my hair with permanent hair dye, and I must say this has helped to save my hair (adding daily moisture) along with deep conditioning weekly. Considering the weather is attempting to change to colder days, your hair will change as well. Colder days are going to lead to dryer hair strands. Therefore using a good hair moisturizer or keeping your hair moisturized is important and crucial. If you’ve ever wondered why your hair sheds or tends to break more during the winter months, this is why. Change in climate. Adding this product to your daily routine can help to alleviate and minimize hair breakage and shedding during the winter months.
