Of all the products I've been trying out lately, this is probably the one I was hoping to work the most but ended up failing in the end. Due to the whole money issue that I mentioned in my life lately post a week ago, I decided I was going to switch from the holy grail of shampoo/condition/treatment set of Ovation to OGX. I had seen countless YouTubers and bloggers rave about this brand so I lost to save some money I would buy these three products to replace my Ovation set. Honestly I wish I hadn't switched. My hair looks and feels lifeless. As well as I've been having a lot more fall out and split ends.
OGX Luxurious Moroccan Argan Creme Shampoo
I got this at Walmart for about $6. So it's not expensive compared to my holy grail shampoo. According to OGX:
The claim about moisture, I honestly see no difference. And as far as softness and shine, I do not see this result at all with my hair. I do like that this product is cruelty free and was not tested on animals, but that's not a good enough reason for me to continue using this product once the bottle runs out of product. I also notice that this shampoo is really heavy so my hair just feels weighed down. And I already have thick hair so I don't need it to be weighed down. My mom tried the product as well on her really thin hair and experienced the exact same result.
OGX Quenched Sea Mineral Moisture Conditioner
I also got this at Walmart for $5. OGX claim on this product:
It is supposed to be perfect for dry or damaged hair. And my hair is both from all the color treatments, without my ovation it's even more so. So I thought this would be the perfect replacement just as I had with the other two items I got. Especially when it had very high reviews. But again, it just fell completely short in my opinion. My hair returned to being very brittle since switching to the product and I haven't dyed my hair since before I switched. Every time I run my fingers through my hair, I just see a lot of fall out that I didn't have before and split ends everywhere. Which is one thing they claimed would be fixed by this product.
OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Intense Moisturizing Treatment
Another purchase from Walmart for $6. OGX description of the product:
I heard hair masks are something really important for the health of your hair. Ovation had something similar to this so I purchased this one as a replacement. Which it was far from. My hair didn't feel softer nor look silkier after using this product. As for as making my hair more manageable, that wasn't the case either. My hair actually felt like it was getting more into rat's nest after using the product making me spend more time trying to work out all the knots.
I don't think these products from OGX are worth it. They do absolutely nothing good for my hair other than making it clean. I have been using the product for over a month and honestly hate the way my hair looks compared to before. Also I have noticed a severe change in my fingernails in that they are a lot more brittle since I started using OGX. To the point where they would completely break or flake apart. Some times I steal some of my sister's ovation just to try to revive my hair and nails a little bit. So I'm going to be getting rid of this product and switching back to Ovation.
