Pura d'or Argan Oil Set Review

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes 

I was so excited to review this Argan Oil set from Pura d'or.
It's been 2 years and half that I have been using Argan Oil on my skin as a daytime moisturizer and it has transformed my skin and I rarely breakout and now thanks to Pura d'or I get to try out their Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner.

Let's get into the review: 
My Set included a 16.oz  Premium Organic Argan Oil Shampoo,  a 16 oz Premium Organic Argan Oil Conditioner and and 1 oz size bottle of Argan Oil imported from Morocco.

The shampoo in my opinion did not have a pleasant scent, it reminded me of a little tea tree oil infused with something else and when I read the label, sure enough Tea Tree was present. That type of scent is a little strong for me. 
I did use it as directed and waited 2 minutes before I rinsed it out and it left my hair in the shower soft as can be. 
I then applied the conditioner, and that had a wonderful scent of Vanilla and Lavender. I was kind of nervous because I did not know what the scent would actually smell like but the conditioner canceled out the shampoo smell. I don't think I'll use the shampoo alone without the conditioner.
Overall, the two combined made my hair super soft and shiny and tangle free.
But there's some interesting facts about this shampoo and conditioner.
Here is what Pura'dor states on their website:

Pure Organic Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil.

The key ingredient is Argania Spinosa and whenever purchasing an Argan Oil always make sure that that is only ingredient or else its diluted and not organic or the real deal.
In the pic below you will see how soft and shiny and managable my hair looked. Also I have no makeup on so this is all about the hair ;)

So, After I towel dried it I diffused it then added a bit of Argan Oil to style it.
So in my opinion this trio works wonderfully together! You can find Pura'dor and many of their other organic products by clicking here: http://www.purador.com/blogger/the-color-wheel-gallery
