I’ve been reading MoroccanOil reviews on other beauty blogs for a long time and hearing rave reviews from my friends as well. However, I didn’t try out any of their products until I found myself staying at a hotel where they didn’t provide conditioner. It was then that I decided to try out a few of the products and loved each and every one of them so much that I found myself purchasing them again and again.
Before I get into the full swing of my MoroccanOil review, I want to tell you that have thick wavy hair. When it looks good, Kim Kardashian can eat her heart out. When the New York humidity strikes I look like I’ve stuck my finger in a socket. It’s bad, very, very bad. Now here’s why I love MoroccanOil.
MoroccanOil Oil Treatment Review
Ingredients include fatty acids, omega-3 oils, vitamins and antioxidants. The company says that these ingredients deliver shine and protection and may speed up drying time while nourishing you hair. After trying it out for myself, I found that a few drops of the MoroccanOil Oil Treatment applied to my towel dried hair left my locks feeling silky smooth and shiny. And the smell is AMAZING! I don’t know how to describe it but it’s sweet without being overpowering and it’s such a joy to have it linger throughout the day. I also use it when I’m going to flat iron my air because it does help to protect my locks against the direct heat of the iron which I do once or twice a week.
MoroccanOil Hydrating Mask Review
Ingredients in the hydrating mask include argan oil, spinosa kernel oil glycerin. This mask was created for people who damaged hair that is severely dry and needs major moisture boost. The first time that I used the MoroccanOil hydrating mask I used one teaspoon and left in in for five minutes. As mentioned above, my hair is long and thick so this amount didn’t do a whole lot for me and I was bummed. But that’s no fault of the MoroccanOil people– in the directions they clearly said to use more and leave it in for ten minutes if you have long hair. So I tried again and this time I did it right. After I rinsed out the product and my hair dried out it felt silky smooth and looked shiny and healthy. I use it twice a month and that’s enough to keep my strands looking great.
MoroccanOil Moisture Repair Conditioner Review
Ingredients include hydrolyzed vegetable protein, argan oil, silk amino acids, keratin amino acids and different kinds of oils. The MoroccanOil Moisture Repair Conditioner is the first MoroccanOil product that I had ever purchased. So I guess we can say that this is the culprit that got my addiction started (thank goodness for hotels that don’t provide conditioner). The first thing that I noticed about the conditioner is that the consistency is super thick to the point where I had to shake the bottle a few times to get some product out of the bottle. The conditioner also has that amazing fragrance that I love about the oil treatment which is a big plus. I use about the size of a silver dollar to wash my hair and that’s enough to get out any tangles that I may have. This conditioner is possibly the best that I’ve ever tried- and I’ve tried many because it leaves my hair feeling healthy, manageable and soft. My only complaint is that the bottle is far too small. I wish that I could buy it by the bucketful.
MoroccanOil Paddle Brush Review
I purchased the paddle brush at the NY IBS show simply because I’ve seen it any just about every hair salon I’ve been to and wanted to see how it compared to other brushes. I found that the bristles on the brush are very gentle and they don’t pull out clumps of hair which I’ve found some other expensive brushes do. That’s not to say that I don’t find hair in the brush, I definitely do but it’s far less than I found with most of the other brushes that I’ve tried in the past.
MoroccanOil Curl Control Mousse Review
Ingredients include hydrolyzed vegetable oil and argan oil. The MoroccanOil mousse is the only item on this list that I’m not 100% happy with because I found that my hair lost its style and frizzed after an hours. The hold simply wasn’t there and the frizz was the out of control crazy Einstein meets Don King type. The oil tamed this but the mousse on its own doesn’t do anything on its own.
With the exception of the mousse, I’m a true believer of MoroccanOil products and will continue to buy them and recommend them.
