Wednesday F4A: I am your guinea pig: Agadir Argan Oil Line (and a note about Family Graces)

25 Apr

(I apologize if those of you who subscribe by email receive this twice! I accidentally hit “publish” last night instead of “draft” – lawd!)

I am in love with Agadir Argan Oil line of products. On two earlier “product review” posts, I happily talked up Agadir shampoo and conditioner, and the Agadir Argan oil.

While strolling about CVS in Waynesville–okay, I don’t get out much y’allses — huhn, so CVS is close by and it has stuff in it and I can gawk and meander and look and sometimes buy something. Even though GMR has accused me of going all “girly-fied” lately. Huhn. What-EVER.

Annnyyyywaaaaay, I happened upon this lovely wonderful sight: Agadir styling mousse . . . be still my beating hair follicles! I grabbed it and with no shame whatsoever paid the full price for it instead of going through Amazon (where I see it is cheaper – if you receive free shipping) as I did with the shampoo and conditioner. But I wanted it Then. I felt completely spoiled–though may I just say and of course I may, that I have come to adore Agadir products and they are worth every penny (Dear Agadir, please do not raise your prices–do not toy with me!). Not only do they make my hair feel wonderful, but the scent is exotic and clean and soothing to my pea-headed brain.

What they sayMoisturizes, conditions, smoothes, humidity resistant. No build up and gives super shine to dry, damaged, stressed hair. Protects hair against chemicals and hot tools. Great aroma that will waken your senses! Paraben free. 24 hour, lasting shine. Enriched with antioxidants and Vitamin E. With protective sunscreen. Sulfate free. Anti color fade for long, lasting hair color. Great body, volume & shine. Hydrates, smoothes, detangles, controls frizz.

What I love about it: Every.Little.Thang!

What I do not like about it: There’s nothing so far that I can say negative. If I had one teeny thing, even though I said it’s worth every penny and it is; well, folkses, it is a bit more than some of the other “over the counter” brands and more in line with “Beauty salon” items. But again, worth the money in how it makes my hair look, feel, smell. Whoopeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

You will only need a bit of the mousse – so be careful. I splorked a big-arse glob of it onto my hand, accidentally. It’s thick and creamy-rich–feels like a cream instead of a mousse. I put it all in my  hair because I didn’t want to waste it, but it was a bit much, so I’ll be careful next time. The scent is the same as with the other products, and I had a whiff of it all day as I went about my business.

I have baby fine hair, but this product, even though it has the word “oil” in it, does not weigh down my hair.

I can’t say enough good things about this product.

Now, while I am here, might as well tell you that FAMILY GRACES is on Amazon Kindle; it’s there in trade paperback, too, but since the release date isn’t quite “official” yet, there’re still doing their thang and all (the trade paperback is at BelleBooks/Bell Bridge books now and they always enjoy readers contacting them, of course!) It should be out in all the usual places soon. I guess they are trying something different by slipping in the kindle book first–I do not know!

I’m excited and terrified that it’s finally out *pant pant pant!* – My goal (and I have no control over it, so I guess it’s more of a hope than a goal *laugh*) is for it to reach the top 100 of Kindle – or as Tender Graces did, the No 1 spot on the Kindle paid bestseller’s list—yes, TG was No 1 over The Help for a little bit–lawdy! Ohhhhh doggies, wouldn’t that be excitervating? :-D

So, at last–  my Virginia Kate Sagas, the Grace’s Trilogy, is at last complete. What a journey. It feel so bittersweet. I spoke of this hope and love for the characters and writing here when this blog was MSN spaces, so some of you may remember those days *smiling*

I’ve loved this character dearly. I’ve loved writing about her and all the others. She has been such a part of my life — I think I just may cry. And here they are–the three books that I have spent so much time with. The entire trilogy. Lawd. *sniffle* I’ll miss you Virginia Kate . . . Micah, Andy, Bobby, Rebekha, Katie Ivene, Frederick, Mee Maw, Miss Darla, Amy and “Mr. Husband” Campinelle, Jade, Soot and Marco–and all the rest.

    I love Argan Oil. it is amazing. You can also use it on dry knees and elbows.

      Yes! I have some that I use on my face, too – Josie Maran. Sometimes I use the agadir argan oil on my heels :-D

    Oh thank goodness, that the boo-boo was yours, Kat. I thought it was me that was all discombobulated!

    So when I read about the Agadir Argan oil I was plenty enthused because I do love to baby my face (aka respect for the aged, LOL), BUT THEN, once I crawled down the page and saw the FAMILY GRACES news …. thrill, thrilling, thrilled!!!! Well, of course I’m flying directly over to Amazon this minute …. YIPPEE, YIPPEE, YIPPEE!!! No 1, here you come

      Naw – I messed up yesterday and hit publish – and lawd! as soon as you do that, it goes out to twitter, fb, email subscribers! I couldn’t back it up – so I just saved it to draft and started over this morning. lawdy. There should be an eject button :-D

      Teehee — No 1 No 1 No 24,000 – yeah, I never check, but I did just peek *laughing*

    I am lucky if I remember to buy shampoo. If I run out, I use the soap. I am keeping my hair short-short right now (summer coming). If a product is even close to $10, I put it back!

    • katmagendie April 25, 2012 at 12:11 pm #

      When my hair was super short, I bought cheap shampoo and conditioner, and never brushed or combed my hair! now . . . dang, all girlified. Huhn.

    Good news about Family Graces! Yeah!

    I too have fine hair, the shampoo you mention is appealing.

    • katmagendie April 25, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

      It’s a nice line!

    I’ve never used the Argan products but I’ll keep a look out. Woohoo on TG! I’m not surprised it sold like that. ;-) I love the cover of your third. Still working up to read the second since I know it’s a bit darker than the first, but I can’t wait to read all three!

    • katmagendie April 25, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

      Lawd – FG is darker than SG — SG isn’t too bad.

      But! I thought of you at the ending, Jessica – yes I did – I thought of you and considered a happy ending – but I’ll never tell :-D
