This review is for the Moroccan Oil LIGHT (i couldnt find it listed separately so have to write it here).
My hair:- Long, Fine to Medium Texture (but plenty of it), slightly wavy, Oily roots, Normal lengths, Dryish ends that split easily due to heat styling.
Wow! I was scared of using this product on my hair for 3 main reasons:
1). I thought it would make my hair look greasy - I've tried to use various oils on my hair in the past, and no matter how tiny an amount i use my hair always looks lank and greasy and overly saturated in oil.
2). Im scared of using too much silicones - i thought it would build up on my hair and make it appear dirty and coated.
3). I was worried that it would be too heavy - i thought it would likely weigh my hair down and pull out my waves.
Despite my fears i decided to give the Light version of Moroccan Oil a try since i've started using a high-heat triple barrel waving tong on my hair a lot recently, and it was causing noticeable dryness and damage to my ends.
I tipped the bottle up tight against my palm and the dime-sized imprint of oil that was left when i removed the bottle was rubbed between my hands and fingered through my hair. I put it through the lengths of my hair as well as my dryer tips. Glancing at the mirror i expected to see the result of a lank, greasy, heavy, stuck-together, limp mess (like my previous experiences after sing oils/serums) i was, instead, amazed to see that my hair still had body, bounce and volume!.. but just looked sooo much healthier. This was my main concern, as, rather than wanting straight, sleek, flat hair (which i presumed Moroccan Oil would be best used for) i love big, bouncy, voluminous hair. I'm so happy that with Moroccan Oil Light you can have shiny, healthy looking hair AND still keep your oomph!
My previously frazzled looking tips look healthy and smooth and my hair looks so much healthier in general.
Oh, and it seems to help protect the hair from further frazzling when using high heat tongs - its a god-send for the very ends & those short fuzzy bits at the sides of my hair that i always seem to fry nomatter what i do.. so i put extra product on those areas - and it still doesnt feel heavy or look greasy even when i use a lot!
I thought it was all hype and couldnt believe Moroccan Oil could be any more special than a regular silicone-laden serum, but somehow it works like magic, sooo much better than any 'cone serums or oils ive used in the past.
Im definitely buying a full-size of this as soon as my sample runs out. I think it's LOVE!
Overall great product. I can see a noticable difference in my split ends and the softness of my hair, it also smells amazing! Expensive for such a small bottle, BUT I have been using mine religously and one bottle (not even half empty) has lasted 5+ months. I would caution only use a SMALL amount as anything more can cause hair to become greasy.
I've had this product for little over a week, and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. My hair feels and looks like it's in better condition. I hope this product continues to work for me!
In general, I'm not a fan of silicones in hair care products. But this one is different. I've tried One'n'Onlys Moroccan Oil before which was nice but this one is even better! It gets absorbed so well and my hair feels stronger and thicker. There's no build up and my hair doesn't get tangled up anymore. A little goes a long way and no greasy effect on day two. A great leave-in! Considering the high price I would buy a travelsize first before I shell out the money for the huge bottle. After thourough testing, I will soon buy the full size bottle .
Update:Ii should have known better! In the long run, this did result in built up and frizz due to the huge amount of silicones. My hair just doesn't like them!
This product is amazing. My hair dresser uses it on my bleached/color treated hair, and it works beautifully. The only drawback is the price! I use one n only argan oil instead, as it's much cheaper and easier to find (every Sally Beauty has it.) If the price tag doesn't deter you, this product will make your hair soft, silky, shiny, and less frizzy.
After reading several reviews I have a feeling I'm putting too much oil in my naturally super thick hair. I bought the large bottle after reading the rave reviews on this and I want to figure out how to put this on right. When I use a whole pump it comes out kind of greasy and when I use less I don't notice a difference in my hair. I have already used this product a handful of times and haven't noticed a difference in my hair. I wonder if anyone else has had the same results as me...
I discovered this product at my hair salon when I got my very first wave perm. I immediately fell in love with it because of its smell, but I stuck to it because it REALLY WORKS! It made my first experience with curly hair smooth and very easy. The best part is, a little 3 oz bottle has lasted me almost a YEAR! You need literally nothing to knock out your bathroom with that amazing scent. Although my stylist told me to put it in while my hair was wet, I opted to put it in once it was 80% dry, that way I knew I could combat any potential frizz. I LOVE this stuff!
This is one of my favourite products ever!! I totally understand what all the hype is about! I have been using it for a year, and I noticed a difference in my hair after using it for the first time. I use the Light Oil Treatment and Hydrating Styling Cream. I put a bit of the oil treatment on when my hair is wet and the styling cream after I've blow-dryed. Just a little though! I have long, thick hair and have figured out the perfect amount that I need. Never has it been this smooth and soft. And my hair has been through a lot. I don't find it cuts down on the drying time but it definitely makes my hair more manageable while blow-drying. This is a miracle product for me :)
Because of all the hype I just HAD to try this, even though it was quite expensive. I found it really hard not to pour too much out of the bottle because it has such a wide opening. When my hair was still wet it felt lovely and the oil definitely cut down on drying time but unfortunately for me and my super-fine hair, when I'd dried my hair it was just really greasy and horrible! I imagine if you had thick hair it would be great but on fine hair - just don't go there! It smells lovely though and because I couldn't use it on my hair I used it as a body oil instead and it was great as a body oil!
I don't understand why there is so much hype about this product. I prefer CHI Silk Infusion. Sure, it makes your hair dry faster but it doesn't protect or condition/oil my hair as much as I thought it would. Also, I don't like the packaging very much. I am always pouring too much into my hand because I can't control how much or how fast the product comes out. When I put the bottle down I am always scared that I am going to knock the bottle over. One thing I do like about this product is the smell. It smells awesome! Overall, I would not purchase this product again. I would recommend CHI Silk Infusion if you want more bang for your buck.
