I'll admit, I didn't want to like this product. It was plastered in every magazine and everyone talked about it. I thought it was more marketing than the product being spectacular.
I recently bleached my black hair to very light, so it was extremely damaged. My stylist gave me a little sample to use. I waited until I finished that to write a fair review.
My hair didn't feel as damaged or brittle as you would expect seriously bleached hair would. It was as soft as it was before I bleached it. After I dyed my hair again I skipped using this and my hair felt like straw.
This serum felt different in my hands and on my hair. It soaked in. I know there are cones in it but it didn't have that slick feeling most serums do. I purchased other serums with identical ingredients (I have no idea how much of each ingredient) and they just sat on my hair, not soaking in or moisturizing.
I use this on dry and wet hair. It helps with frizz, shine, bounce and softness. It is pricey but it lasts a really long time so it's worth it. I don't like the glass bottle though, I saw my stylist had a pump for her bottle so I will purchase one as well.
I've been using the same bottle since October 2009, but sometimes I just use it 1 x week. My bottle cost around $30 from the salon. The stylist always uses this on me whether I'm going for straight or wavy.
My hair is naturally on the wavy side, and I got lazy about straightening it a while back, so I just work with the curl now. The less I have to do to my hair, the better. My hair is very coarse, and it's past my shoulders.
On to the product: I've had trouble with the lid not wanting to screw on well, and sometimes I worried I'd drop the thick glass bottle on my tile floor, but so far so good.
I use about a nickel size amount in towel-dried hair. I think it makes my hair dry faster, helps with smoothing, softening, and detangling. What else can I really say about it? I love the smell.
To me, it smells just like a drugstore perfume I used to wear and love when I was a teen, called Verve, the pink one. Man I loved that stuff, and this is the first time I've smelled that scent again in all these years. Wish they would sell just the scent of Moroccanoil and I would buy that for sure :)
Anyway, I probably won't repurchase once I finally use this up. Maybe if I were into straightening my hair, but now I rarely do that. Instead, I can just use a little evoo or other oil through my hair and am happy with the results.
I have very curly hair that I blow out, hit with a flat iron at 410 degrees 2-3 times a week and touch up with the flat iron set on low every morning. My hair is very prone to moisture (steam from boiling water while I am cooking sets it off), and as I result, I do horrible things to make it behave. Naturally, my hair has punished me by becoming dry and brittle with a lot of breakage and a split end on just about every strand of hair I have. And then I purchased this product.
Pricey. Yes. But a little goes a long way and believe me, the results have been worth it. My hair is shiny, holds it shape in humidity, and has become much healthier. The breakage has dropped off to the degree that I have to actively search now for any damage. It is soft and I can't stop touching it.
Many people recommend using this product on damp hair, and I have done that, but I get better results if I use about a nickel size amount on my hair after I blow dry and before I flat iron. There have been times when it seems like I have used too much, but after about 10 minutes, the oil absorbs right in and my hair is not greasy at all.
My biggest complaint relates to the packaging. It's a fairly heavy glass bottle. A pump would be great as you currently have to pour it out directly into your hand.
That aside, I love this product and will continue to repurchase.
this stuff rocks!! i bought this 2 days ago and the first time i tried it i didnt really notice anything then the second day i was like wow i couldnt believe how soft my hair was, i couldnt keep my hands off my hair! my hair was getting pretty dry from coloring and becoming a big dried out mess even when i got out of bed in the morning my hair was not its usual poof ball mess! i wll always use this!
Makes my strawlike hair lie flat instead of standing up in all directions. Silky smooth hair with the first application. EEEE. Couldn't be happier. Totally worth the $40.
I've been using Morrocan oil now for just over a year and have to say I will continue to re-purchase and re-purchase this product as it runs out. I have long, thick, coarse, wavy hair that needed something to smooth it out. I tried BioSilk and Argan Oil and both no matter how little I used made my hair looked so greasy! With Morrocan Oil if you put in too much you will notice that it will make your hair look greasy, I use a dime size portion everytime I get out of the shower into my wet hair. I've found using it while your hair is damp or wet gives better results. After drying taking a couple drops and smoothin them over your hair will fix any little frizzies that got away. I have no quarrels with the price as, yes it is expensive, but it lasts for so long! I only just bought my 2nd bottle in over a year! Also I have switched to the Light version as I have blonde hair, which i would recommend to anyone with lighter hair. All together, I love this product!! :)
I first started using Moroccanoil initially for the scent, smells realllly good and it did make my hair look softer and a bit shinier (I don't really have dull hair so i didn't see too much of a difference). I began noticing that my split ends were not as noticeable as they were before, so that was nice, but the original formula is a little heavy on my fine hair so I opted for the Moroccanoil Light Treatment instead. It smells just as good as the original and does the same thing, its just a lighter consistency. I don't think its a miracle worker like some say but it does make your hair look more together and smell really nice. I don't use it as often anymore though b/c of the silicones, but when i feel like my hair needs it, like the colder months, i use it to soften up brittle ends and protect from environmental factors. Its a decent product but the price is absurd, hence the reason why I took away a lippy. I like it but i think it may work better for those with thicker hair..I have a travel size bottle of moroccanoil light and if it runs out I'd probably repurchase again.
My aunt bought me this, so I can't comment as to the price. However, I've pretty much trashed my hair with all the bleaching and coloring I've done to it (gone from black to yellow to red to light brown with highlights) so if you add up the cost of doing all that, the price is well worth it (and I will be buying a bottle of my own). I won't say that this has made my hair feel reborn. What it HAS done is made it less dry, more shiny, and less ragged-looking. I use it in combination with the shampoo and conditioner, and my hair actually looks remotely healthy rather than the frazzled mess it was before I hacked half of it off (from below my shoulders to my chin) and had it freak out and get monstrously puffy. I can run it through my hair as it dries and have pretty waves without any frizz. Next day hair still looks great and I put more on my ends to keep them from splitting. I am fully confident that this will have my hair in the best shape possible for its condition as I grow it back out. A+!
I purchased the small travel bottle to try out and see what the hype was all about and right away I noticed it made a difference to my hair in a way that Biosilk or Redken's Glass did not. My hair was soft and I kept running my fingers through my hair. Normally that would be somewhat painful as my hair gets knotted easily with even the smallest gust of wind.
The small bottle lasted a long time and when it was done, I was convinced Argan oil made all the difference. So I decided to purchase 100% pure Argan oil, with none of the cones. Was that ever a mistake. I tried it a few times, trying to adjust my technique...try a little less, a lot less, a lot more, a little more, damp hair, dry hair, emulsify the oil first, put it it directly...it just was not the same.
I know it has the much maligned silicones, but the product works for my hair, leaving it silky and very manageable.
I have tried olive oil and coconut oil treatments, but figured they were fading my colour treated hair. I thought this was different and really wanted to love it, because it does may my hair soft and silky, but if fades my colour. I tried applying it only on the ends, thinking it was just aggressive grey hair on the roots, but then noticed my hair starting to get lighter on the ends, kind of the ombre look, which looked bad. I am really disappointed,because it is a good product, and the hair does feel silky and I don't have that Pig-Pen hair,with fly aways all over the place, but it strips my colour, so this is is not for me. If you have coloured hair, be aware it might fade it a lot faster.
Absolutely love this product. It smells yummy, and makes my hair insanely soft afterwards. Use on damp hair but only a TINY drop. Believe the hype. It's a miracle product
