Royal Radha Oils #RadhaBeauty

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

If you haven't guessed by now, I'm huge into oils.  I love them for how they work on my body, and even my senses.  Radha Beauty, whose skincare line I reviewed recently, bases their skincare on precious oils, and sent me their Argan and Fractionated Coconut Oil to try out.

The Radha Beauty line started with Argan Oil.  The founder used pure, organic Moroccan Argan Oil in her hair and skincare, and many wanted to know her secret.  And now, you know it, too!
Radha Beauty Argan Oil
When you have curly hair like I do, it's almost always dry.  It's just harder for the natural oils to distribute, and the hair texture itself is more brittle.  I don't wash my hair but maybe every 5-7 days, and even if my scalp needs washing, my ends are still dry.  So, argan oil is a great way to make sure that my hair ends are protected.

My hair sucks up Argan oil like it's a straw - so I have to be careful, or I'll put so much on it will get greasy. I like to warm up the oil in my hands so that I can spread it more easily on my hair.  I also recently bought a hair dryer bonnet so that I can give myself warm oil and hair conditioner treatments.   

I usually find argan oil to be heavy, but Radha's is actually on the lighter side - both in weight and color.  It is also pretty much odorless, which I like.
Argan oil is not only good for the hair, but for the skin, too.  And so is Coconut oil.  In fact, I've not come across a more versatile oil than coconut, and by fractionating it, it's even more wonderful, because it's always a liquid, and it's more shelf-stable.
Radha Beauty Coconut Oil
By fractionating the coconut oil, it renders the oil odorless, colorless, liquid, and shelf-stable.  Coconut Oil is actually a misnomer - it's a butter, which means it contains water.  Anything with water will eventually grow bacteria.  If kept in a cool, dry environment, away from direct heat, fractionated coconut oil will last pretty much indefinitely.  And that is good for anything you want to make with it!

I haven't actually experimented with making soaps or cosmetics yet, but I have made my own oil blends, and I'm thrilled I can now add coconut oil to them.  I couldn't before because it would harden.  I keep bottles of my oil blend by my bedside, at my desk where I do my nails and where I use my computer.  I've been keeping this coconut oil by the sofa where I watch TV, and use it every time I sit down to watch a program or play with the dogs.  My hands never felt so soft  When I went on travel for a few days, I didn't bring it with me, and I'm blaming that change on routine on why many of my nails broke!

If you've never used oils before, they can take a little getting used to, but they're so worth it.  Starting off with lightweight, odorless oils like these might make it easier to incorporate into your routine. Experiment and see which oils work best for your hair, skin, and nails!

My nailart today is inspired by the dark blue bottle of the Radha Argan Oil.  The dark color protects the oil from light.  I mimicked the blue with Sally Hansen Salon Dark Night, and did a version of the plus sign with a white striper.

I'm a fan of Radha Beauty! I like that their philosophy includes partnering with earth-loving, women-empowering organizations, using eco-friendly packaging, and continously improving their impact on the world. I love that these oils are natural, pure, and cruelty-free, too.

For more information, or to purchase these, you can find Radha Beauty on their website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and, where the Argan Oil is currently on sale for $15.89, and the Coconut Oil is currently on sale for $13.89.
