Hair: Moroccan Oil

8 June 2012

Moroccan Oil 25ml - £12.85

Moroccan Oil is all the rage at the moment, but its not a product that's new to me. I first started using Moroccan Oil in 2010 within this Sexy Hair product, and I absolutely loved it as it wasn't too concentrated, so gave my hair just the right amount of shine. I originally bought it because my hairdresser told me it would help to speed up blowdrying, but it didn't really make a noticeable difference if I'm honest.

Fast forward two years and I'd switched hairdresser, and although I've still got the Sexy Hair product left, my hairdresser managed to talk me in to buying this. At first I hated it - it had a runnier consistency than my sexy hair treatment (I keep going on about this but I love it!), and it made my hair feel really heavy and greasy. After some research I realised that even though I was using a fairly small amount, because my hair's so short I literally need the tiniest blob.

Now I know the amount I need to use I do really like this. It makes my hair look shiny and feel lovely, but to be honest I don't think its doing anything really beneficial for my hair, other than making it look glossy. As my hair is really damaged from constant bleaching I just think if I'm going to put products on my hair, I want them to at least pretend to be doing some form of 'repairing'. But yeah, this makes my hair nice and shiny and I use it every time I blow dry now. Another bonus is how long this lasts - I've been using it since the beginning of March and I'm only about a third of the way through the bottle!

This has been a really mixed review but that's how I feel about this treatment! It's good if you've got some extra cash and are looking for some extra shine, but if you're after a deep treatment I'd recommend Aveda or Philip Kingsley.

    1. It's lovely but my hair just needs something more penetrating I think! x

  2. Thanks for this review! It confirmed what i thought. I was going to buy this but was worried it would only temporarily treat my hair. If it doesn't actually repair my hair then i think it's not worth the money. HAve you tried Macadamia oil? I heard that one works better and it's slightly cheaper.

    1. Yeah exactly, I definitely need something that is more than temporary. No I haven't but I will check it out, thank you! x

  3. I felt the same about Moroccan Oil. It didn't do much for my hair and there's so many cheaper alternatives out there. I also didn't like the scent xxx
