Kahina Organic Argan Oil Review

Kahina 100% Organic Argan Oil is well, 100% argan oil. It isn’t diluted. It’s real argan oil harvested and cold pressed by Berber women in Morrocco working at a sustainable co-op. Kahina donates 25% of their profits to support women for women initiatives. Read more here.

I love oils because they are multi-functional. Argan oil can be used for pretty much anything. It’s rich in Vitamin E. This means it moisturizes hair, body, and nails. Why is argan different than other oils? Well, becuase it is lightweight and odorless.Well, I could argue the odorless claim. I pick up a faint olive pit aroma, very faint and fades quickly, but it’s there.

My Experience: I wonder why I’ve lived so long without argan oil! This Kahina stuff is awesome. It makes my dry winter skin very happy. I’m using it on my face at night. Yep, an oil on my face. Kahina Argan Oil absorbs quicker than any other complexion oil that I’ve used. But, it isn’t compromising. My skin is so soft the next day, no flakes or the usual dry redness. My skin looks and feels healthy. I also use a tiny amount rubbed on my palms and then glide my palms over my hair. This takes care of fly-aways. Wait! That’s not oil. Argan oil makes an awesome cuticle oil. A tiny amount of this stuff goes a long way. Don’t over do it. Use your “oil sense”.

Who may like Kahina Argan Oil? If you love multi-functional oils then you need this stuff in your arsenal. Now that I’ve tried it, I’m having the “olive oil” effect. Kahina Argan Oil will be a staple in my bathroom cabinets. I mean it smooths fly aways, takes care of dry cuticles, and dry skin on the face & body. Try this oil if you like complexion oils and you have normal or normal to dry skin. I also hear this stuff works wonderfully on oily skin. You may also like this if you are looking for an unscented oil or moisturizer. If you want a lightweight, fast absorbing oil, then try this too. You’re looking for a vegan moisturizer. And why would one like Kahina over other argan oils? It’s organic and it supports women to women initiatives. It’s also named after a Jewish Berber princess 🙂

Berber women at the argan co-op. This program also has classes to teach the women to read and write.

Who may not like Kahina Argan Oil? You dislike the feel and “mess” of oils. You may prefer creams or gels. You like scented skincare and haircare products. Even though a little bit goes a long way, it isn’t exactly cheap.

Kahina Organic Argan Oil comes in 2 sizes: 1 oz. for $36 and 3.4 oz for $82. It can be purchased at Beautyhabit.

  1. I still have yet to try argan oil, but I’ve been eyeing Josie Maran’s. It’s comparable in price to the Kahina, so maybe this would be the better option. I’ve happily used Moroccanoil Shampoo & Conditioner, which is wonderful. The cost is not really feasible for me anymore, so I found a great dupe if you’re interested: From Sally Beauty, it’s called One n’ Only Argan Oil, they have shampoo, conditioner and a hair oil treatment (that last one I haven’t tried). The results are very similar, dare I say better? The only thing is the scent isn’t the same, and that’s one of the lovely things about the Moroccanoil brand. The shampoo and conditioner from Sally is about half the price of Moroccanoil. A steal.

    1. Oh, so I couldn’t remember what my stylist used on my hair that I loved so much. It was Moroccanoil, I searched it after reading your comment. I loved the oil and the shine spray. Thanks for sharing the Sally’s dupe. I rarely go in there so I’d never know. I need to get something after all the preteen boys with autism I work with today were like “what’s wrong with your hair” “it’s so frizzy. you really need some john frieda” “did you rub a balloon on your head?” It was a bit humorous (and good, finally noticing other people & details!), but they are right. It has been super flyaway since I stopped coloring my hair. I want to try generic Moroccanoil 🙂

  2. I’ve used argan oil before, Josie Maran. I like it and you’re right about it being versatile. The Josie Maran is expensive and that turns me off. The Kahina is too but I like the story behind it all after visiting their website. It seems like the money is actually going somewhere.

    1. This is the first argan oil that I’ve ever tried and I really like it. I don’t know how it compares to the Josie Maran. I like knowing that Kahina supports women to women initiatives.

  3. So I purchased Make Up Artist’s Choice argan oil, it’s $10 for one ounce, and it’s 100% pure virgin oil, but it’s not organic. The price was right, so I went for it. It’s amazing. I use it all the time and it really hydrates my skin. I did some more reading on argan oil, and it’s one of the best antioxidants you can use, it’s a natural anti-inflammatory, and is just so soothing. I am SOLD! I would, however, still like to try Kahina or Josie Maran because of the organic factor, they both give back to the community that creates the oil, and just to see if it’s any different from Make Up Artist’s Choice.

    1. I have never heard of that brand before, but that price does sound right. I love the argan oil that I’ve tried. But, I have only tried this one and Moroccan Oil for the hair so I don’t know if they are all about the same or not.
      I heard that only Berber women in Morocco are allowed to harvest the argan nuts. I don’t know if this is true or not or why it is so. I know that many Berber women make money for themselves weaving or creating skincare products, soaps, etc. There’s a lady in Jordan that makes a soap that I’d love to buy/try when I visit.

    1. I love argan. It is the only product that I have used to help with dry, wintery cracked hands.
      I also love that this product because of their co-op. They’re paying the women a fair wage and teaching many to read and write. They want to support their daughters through the university system. So, yeah, I like that 🙂
