I think I like it - Kukui Oil!


Today I want to share a hair product with you - which is unusual, because I rarely find a product worth mentioning.

I saw an add for Organix Kukui Oil Shampoo & Conditioner and it described the products as "Indulge your tresses with this exotic blend of kukui nut oil, an ancient Hawaiian secret used for its humidity resistant abilities, creating a shimmering gloss to smooth texture and repel humidity. Make everyday a 'good hair' day."


Well that sounded good, but I've tried the "real" Morrocan Oil and the argon oil shampoos and treatments.  Frizz-Ease does nothing for me.  I have very fine, yet curly hair - so it frizzes very easily.  So I was curious about what was different about Kukui oil.  I looked it up and it is described as "Made up of a variety of antioxidants and vitamins, kukui nut oil can help protect and hydrate skin. Vitamins C, A, and E are all present within the liquid. It is also high in linoleic acid, a fatty acid beneficial to skin care.  Hawaiians sometimes remove the oil from the seeds themselves in order to burn it in a kukui hele po, or stone oillamp. The oil has also been used for stimulating hair growth in some regions."  

So off I went to Wal-Mart to get the goods:

They are $5.74 each - so it's not a bad deal.  I used it that night an 3 times since and you know what - my hair is so much smoother and softer!  It is noticeably less, dry and much less frizzy!  I have never seen such a difference from switching hair products.  The only other time my hair has been this nice is when I have had a Keratin straightening done by my hairstylist ( but that's like $250 a pop for 6 to 8 weeks).  

I also got the "Frizz Defying Curl Cream"

I think I like all this stuff because it doesn't weigh my hair down - because my hair is so fine, silicone based products don't work, and I think the other "oils" are too heavy.  This some how hydrates and smooths it.  

It may only work until summer rolls around but if it makes it through the summer humidity this will be my Holy Grail!

Do you have a Holy Grail Hair Product?



  1. I am so going to try this! My hair gets so dry in the summer.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I hope it works for you! I was so pleasantly surprised!

  2. I'm so glad you reviewed this, because I was just looking at it this week and wondering whether it would be worth purchasing!!!

    1. Let me know if you like it! I hope you get good results too :)

  3. Shampoos and conditioners usually don't do much difference on my hair so I am tempted to try these. My hair usually feel dry and I use the straightener a lot. Lately I've really been enjoying the Garnier Fructis marvelous oil. I love the lightweight and silky feel it has. It makes my hair look shiny without looking heavy and oily.

  4. Thanks for the review, sounds like it would be worth checking out. I'd really like to know how it performs in the summer time with all the humidity.

  5. I have tried a bunch of Organix products, but not the Kukui Oil, so thanks for sharing your take on this. I also get frizzy hair, so I'm going to be buying the shampoo and the conditioner the next time I head to Target!
