I just kept and kept on seeing praises for this hair conditioner/treatment that despite my being kuripot (cheapskate :-) ) and generally preferring drugstore hair products, I finally dropped by the Snoe Beauty stall and got myself a bottle of Snoe Hair Heroes with Intense Argan Oil. So, after weeks of testing…am I disappointed? Not? Keep reading to find out.
What the company says about the product:
Deep Treatment Mask
Lavish your hair with Snoe’s Revolutionary 5-in-one Intense Argan Oil Moroccan Liquid Gold. This cleansing conditioner replaces shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, de-tangler, leave-on conditioner, and even shaving cream. For all hair types, 5-in-one is formulated to add moisture without weighing hair down. It effectively cleanses & hydrates hair without stripping or robbing it of its natural nutrients and oils. It has astonishing healing, conditioning, and anti-aging properties to keep your hair nourished and revitalized, to keep you looking beautiful.
I see now that it can’t simply be called a conditioner because Hair Heroes is multipurpose. I only use this as a regular conditioner and as a leave-on conditioner though. Right now I just don’t have the time or energy to do a weekly deep conditioning mask, and I don’t have the need for a cleansing conditioner. And anyway I have around five different bottles of shampoo in the shower that I should use up.
The surprise is that I prefer using this as a leave-on conditioner. The leave-ons that I’d tried before I wanted to like but never did because while they gave my parched tresses much-needed of moisture, they also mostly made my tresses sticky and weighed down in our hot, humid climate. Hair Heroes, as a leave-on conditioner, is great. Simply great. When my hair’s still damp, I use about six pumps and use my fingers to comb that through my tresses.
Then I dry my hair and comb it. Nearly no tangles, my tresses are soft, and a lot of the frizz is noticeably gone. Background on my tresses: dry, colored, naturally straight, and sorta fine. The result is hair that is behaved. My tresses look bagsak but not limp or weighed down. It’s really cool that even through the following day my hair still feels softer than it usually does. I guess all this may sound a little advert-like, but I bought this product myself.
As a regular conditioner though, used after shampoo, I find it average. For me it just didn’t perform as well when used that way.
The scent of it I initially found strong, but surprisingly, I’ve come to like it. I’m not sure how to describe it…it’s a little perfumey and reminds me of coconut though it doesn’t smell like it. If you’re particular about scents, test Hair Heroes in actual before buying.
The texture of Hair Heroes is slightly thick, a little waxy like skin products with silicones ingredients feel. It’s not sticky though. Sometimes I don’t get to wash my hands after applying this as a leave-on, I just wipe it off and the residue feels kinda moisturizing on my skin. This is available at Snoe Beauty stores and on their online store. It costs PhP 499 for a 250 ml bottle.
Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes with Intense Argan Oil – Pros:
- As a leave-on treatment, makes my tresses soft, moisturized, less frizzy, and more manageable.
- The effect isn’t short-lived. I still see it the day after.
- Doesn’t weight down my tresses or make them oily at all.
- Doesn’t irritate my scalp or give me dandruff.
- The texture is easy to work with. Slightly thick but smooth and not sticky.
- Convenient pump dispenser.
- Cute logo on the bottle.
- It’s multipurpose.
- Locally available.
Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes with Intense Argan Oil – Cons:
- The price is expensive, especially compared to other local and drugstore brands.
- No complete ingredients list on the bottle or website.
- Personally I found it average used as a regular conditioner.
I guess you can see that I’m not disappointed in this product. Even though its price is more than I usually spend on, I find that it’s worth it and I’d buy it again. I would also really like to try out the other items in the Hair Heroes line.
