Moroccanoil | Oil Treatment | Review

For those of you who aren't familiar with Morccanoil they are the originating & leading brand in the professional argan oil hair product category, and the fastest growing independent company in the professional salon industry.

Moroccanoil Treatment is an ultra light formula which is absorbed by the hair instantly, resulting in a natural, silky finish and brilliant shine without leaving a residue. It has the ability to restore over processed hair damaged by environmental factors and chemical procedures.

Some of Moroccanoil's benefits include:

-Softens thick and unmanageable hair
-Restores shine and softness to dull, lifeless hair
-Strengthens brittle hair
-Promotes healing and provides nourishment to hair damaged by coloring and styling
-Protects against UV damage and other environmental factors
-Reduces drying time and speeds up styling time

The oil is really rich and almost reminds me of a syrup but it's not sticky. 

Glow: I really love the smell and the fact that it's pleasant but not at all overwhelming. The consistency of the oil is really rich and highly concentrated so you only need a small amount, it goes a long way. Per the directions, I applied  a small amount to my damp hair post shampooing & conditioning and just as it claims it indeed absorbed quickly! Also, I have naturally oily hair so I'm always hesitant about the types of oils & moisturizers I put in it, I was pleased that it did not weigh my hair down at all. I still had a lot of body and my hair was soft, shiny and silky!

Glare: *whispers* I wish the bottle was bigger!

Would I Recommend It? OMG! Yes! Yes! and YES! I'm not over exaggerating I've really fell in LOVE with this stuff lol.

Overall Glam: I was initially introduced to Moroccanoil a few months ago when my beautician used it on me. I loved it then as well but you know how your hair never seems to turn out the same when you attempt to do it yourself? Well lets just say I am IMPRESSED! Moroccanoil retails at $40.80 so it's not exactly what most would call "affordable" but from my experience with it I definitely think it's worth it. It's a price I'd be willing to pay being that you only need a little and because I don't straighten my hair that often so I think it would last a pretty long time in my favor.

Moroccanoil is available exclusively in professional salons. But be cautious because like most in demand products there are replicas of it all over the internet. So just be aware that when you purchase products from  unauthorized dealers such as Ebay, Amazon etc. you're also taking the risk that it may indeed be counterfeited and/or diverted products that are not protected by the company's warranty. To find out where you can buy genuine Moroccanoil products and to just learn more about the brand, please visit their website http://www.moroccanoil.com .

  1. I just might have to cop some of this!

  2. i guess this is one of the brand names of Argan Oil that's popular. i bought some Argan Oil by One-N-Only and used it in conjunction with their Keratin enriched-shampoo, conditioner and deep treatment. my hair was silky smooth. it was shiny and bouncy.
    Argan Oil is a must for those of us with "negro hair".

  3. Wow that is amazing shine. You're hair looks so good! A healthy shine. Does this work for non ethnic hair as well?

  4. @Jessica Yes it does! It's made for all hair types.
