If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that one of my tips for keeping long hair looking thick and shiny is to use an oil treatment before washing. For quite awhile, I’ve used what I call my holy grail hair treatment — a combo of argan oil (just a generic brand I get at Sally Beauty Supply) and CHI Silk Infusion. Those two products together have done the trick for me, but I’m always on the hunt for something even better …and I think I’ve found it!
I was sent a bottle of RUSK Deepshine Oil Advanced Marine Therapy a few weeks ago to try and review (see my first impression post here). I wash my hair every other day, and I’ve completely replaced my argan oil/CHI Silk Infusion treatment with this ever since I got it.
Here’s how I use it — I hop in the shower and get my hair wet, and then I wash and do everything you normally would in the shower except wash and condition my hair. After getting out, I towel off my hair and run a wide-toothed comb through it. Then, I apply around 3 drops of the RUSK Deepshine Oil throughout my hair (a little goes a long way). I pile it on top of my head with an elastic and let it set, usually for at least an hour (but once or twice it’s been less time, depending on what I have to do that day).
Excuse the no-makeup, but hey, it’s skin fresh outta the shower! As soon as I apply the RUSK Deepshine Oil, even before I wash my hair, I can feel it becoming softer and smoother. Even though it’s an argan oil-based treatment, and you might think oil would damage your hair or weigh it down, it’s super lightweight and makes your hair silky.
This product does everything the argan oil/CHI Silk Infusion combo did for me, and more. I love that it eliminates the need for two different products and gives me everything I want in one bottle. I used the argan oil for treatment and to make my hair softer, and the CHI Silk Infusion sort of as a styling aid, since I blowdry and round brush my hair after washing, to cut down on frizz and make it easier to work with. RUSK Deepshine Oil does both of those things. Plus, the bottle I have is 4 fl oz, while the CHI Silk Infusion is only 2 fl oz, and the argan oil is 3.4 fl oz!
If you have frizzy hair, this is definitely a must-buy product for you. And, if you just want a natural treatment to keep your hair soft and healthy, this works for that purpose, too. You can use it lots of different ways, not just as I’ve described above — it works on wet or dry hair, and you don’t have to let it set for it to work (that’s just how I use it).
