Typically, I stay away from oils and serums to use on my hair on a daily basis. I might use one every once in a while, but certainly not every day. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my thoughts on Moroccan Oil products; the Oil Treatment in particular. Most oils and serums do what they say they will do: They add shine and help keep frizz away. They also weigh down your hair and make it feel coated, and by the end of the day, it looks dirty as well. Needless to say, I was not thrilled to start my testing phase of Moroccan Oil. I didn’t see how using an oil on my hair every day was going to do me any good.
Moroccan Oil Treatment comes in two formulas. Regular formula is for thick, frizzy, dark hair. Light formula is for fine and light-colored hair. I guess if you have really blonde hair, the regular formula may make your hair appear darker with prolonged use. Good to know. I have dark, relatively thick hair, but I decided on the light formula, simply because of my experience with hair oils and serums in the past. I didn’t want that coated feeling, so I figured I better start light with this experiment.
This product claims to soften hair, restore shine, liven up dull hair, strengthen brittle hair, nourish the scalp, and help your hair dry faster. Wow…does it do dishes, too? The directions are simple; apply to damp hair, comb through, and style as usual. So, how does it measure up? Well, it feels like any other oil, but the second you put it on your hair, it absorbs right in, and amazingly, it does make your hair dry faster. Don’t know how, but I’ll research that eventually. It made my hair feel softer, but not too soft. It definitely added shine; I got lots of compliments on that once I started using this. It seems like the oil adds a layer of protection against dirt and oil, because second day hair doesn’t feel greasy at all, it still feels soft and looks shiny. Overall opinion: Love It! It’s pretty amazing, and worth the price.
I haven’t tried anything else in the Moroccan Oil family, but I want to…especially now that I know what the hype is all about. Have you tried Moroccan Oil, or any treatment containing Argan Oil? What are your thoughts?
