Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak

I remember reading a Save vs. Spend article way back, and it said that hair care products such as shampoo and conditioner should be part of the SPEND list on your beauty budget, mainly because it's like vitamins for the hair. I used to be skeptical since I didn't really want to shell out hundreds of pesos for basic hair care necessities so I just get them from the supermarket. There's nothing really wrong with getting the brands made for the mass market, because how a product reacts to each individual is different. You can use affordable hair care products and still have naturally beautiful hair (lucky you!). But, it's not the case for me. I hated my hair way back when I was in my tweens/teens. I wanted it to be straight and shiny, and the harder I tried, the more frizzy and worse it looked. It was when I shifted to more premium and less chemical-laden (sulfate-free and silicone-free) hair care formulas that I finally became friends with my wavy hair!

Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak

I was given bunch of samples when I last visited the newly opened branch of Kiehl's in the East Wing of Shangri-La Mall, and this one is part of the mini-loot. I am quite vain when it comes to my hair so I was very excited to try this one out!

About the Product:

Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak is made of Fairly-Traded Argan Oil, plus Safflower Seed Oil and Cocoa Butter. This one is as natural as can be since it's free from silicones and parabens.


A sachet is good for one-time use since I have long hair. The instruction says to leave this on for 3 minutes (after shampooing), but I like to leave it on for more than 10 minutes to maximize the hair nourishing effects of this hair treatment.

I felt my hair becoming soft as I rinsed it off, so I had very high hopes that this would indeed make my hair sleek. This product did deliver its promise of smoother, frizz-free hair! I noticed that my hair was more manageable for up to 3 days even after washing with shampoo the following day. Imagine if I used this every so often; my waves would be gorgeously soft and tame all the time. The only thing I'm not fond of is the scent. It smells like medicinal herbs but you'll get over it once you feel how soft your hair is.

I think we should treat our hair to deep conditioning masks often. I only get to do this during the weekend because I don't have the luxury of time to relax in the shower during weekdays. I'd love to know, do you go for Save or Spend when it comes to hair care? :)
