I looooooove this hair treatment! It makes my hair (which I dye on a monthly basis) feel so soft and silky. It also gives my hair tons of shine, and I don't think I've ever really been able to make it look quite so radiant without it! A dime-sized amount is all I need for my hair, which is slightly longer than shoulder-length, but I've found it's ok to use a little more than that if my hair is feeling extra dry, and it never makes my hair feel greasy. It has improved the overall quality of my hair with continued use. I used to use biosilk religiously, but I think that Morrocan Oil blows that away, for the biosilk always seemed to sit on top of my hair, while the MO seems to get absorbed by my hair.
I have two small criticisms when it come to the bottle. First, with the screw-off cap, it allows for A TON of the product to come rushing out super fast, so keep that in mind. Secondly, I'm not too crazy about the fact that it comes in a glass bottle. I'm always a bit wary when it comes to traveling with it. I'm also pretty clumsy, so it's only a matter of time before I drop it and it shatters all over the floor.
Overall, I think that this is a great product, and I believe that it is a near necessity for everyone with colored hair.
If you dye your hair, you need this.
My hair had been every colour under the rainbow, repeatedly going from black to blonde, to black, to blonde and well, you get the picture. A fried mess.
When getting my hair cut at a Salon, my stylist suggested this. And let me say, wow. My hair has never looked more healthy, or shiny, or happy.
Using consistantly, I could see how an oily buildup could occur, so I would use a clarifying shampoo a little more often.
My only gripe is the fact that I bought the large bottle, and I don't think I'm going to EVER get through it!
I've been eying this product for months now. I finally gave in and bought a bought a bottle when I got my waist-length hair colored. My hair was quite healthy before I dyed it, but after the dye, they felt like straws *cries* After I washed my hair, I put a dime size amount in my palm. Rubbed my palms together until the serum is heated, then applied all over my hair (including the roots). I then blow-dried my hair and to my amazement, my hair felt smoother and shinier! The oil did not weight down the volume one bit. Instead, I got an extra boost of volume to my hair! OMG hello to my HG hair serum, I have finally found you!
UPDATE: I have found a way to make the bottle grease-free! When you pour the bottle, make sure you lay the opening directly on your palm. After you slowly pour the desired amount, slide the opening of the bottle away from your palm. If you do it correctly, there should be little to no residue left that will make the oil drip down from the bottle. Also, this has passed the test of traveling 20+ hours on an airplane without any leak!
I have been using MorrocanOil for some time now and love it. I had heard you can use this in your home hair coloring to make color last longer and give it extra shine.
I needed to have my roots done so I decided to do it at home. I bought a box of Loreal 10 minute hair color in medium reddish brown. I wasn't sure how much oil to use so I dumped in one capful of the oil into the developer then added the tube of color. I shook it for about 2 minutes to make sure the oil was mixed in. I was very pleased with how the color went on my hair. Very smooth. I was also pleased with how this rinsed out. I was concerned that maybe no color actually went on my hair because this just rinsed out a little to easily. I conditioned with Pureology Hydrate conditioner (I hate the boxed conditioners they make my hair really oily). I am amazed how silky and shiny my hair is. Usually it's shiny after a coloring but not this silky. The color is AMAZING! Usually I have to wait a week for the color to tone down to a real medium reddish brown. It's perfect.
This stuff is awesome.
I was just introduced to this product. This stuff is AMAZING!!! I didn't think I would like this product at all, since I have relatively fine hair and me putting oil-based styling products is just asking for trouble. Surprisingly, this wasn't the case. This is an oil, but it doesn't leave my hair greasy at all.
Yes, this is a rather expensive product ($15 for a .085oz bottle) and a little bit does go a long way. But I when I finish my bottle I will probably go back and by more.
Better than Biosilk -- and I never thought I'd say that. My hair is naturally curly, naturally dark brown (but currently ash blonde) and BKT'd. MO smooths, separates and perfects my mane and bangs (especially when they stick out a bit after flat ironing with my GHD or Sedu) smells delicious (like coconut/cocoa butter) and just plain rocks. The bottle, however, does not. Every pour is a crap shoot, because MO spills like oil. On the upside, and unlike Biosilk, no matter how much MO I put in my hair, it never looks greasy. Two cons: 1) It makes ash alonde look yellower/darker over time, which is why they came out with a "light" version which I have yet to try. To get MO out, you must clarify (something I hate doing because of BKT). 2) If your face is prone to breakouts, you don't want this stuff to touch it. Can't wait to try the light... and will report back.
Been using this for a month. Love this stuff! You really need very little unless you have Rapunzel length hair. It make my hair shiny and silky after relaxing AND coloring. Not crazy about the glass bottle and it's a bit pricey but a little lasts a long time. Have not have a problem with breakage but I use conditioner before each application. Makes me want to try other products in the brand.
This is my first review ever on MUA, although I have been a regular reader and I never buy products before looking up there reviews here. So I just bought Moroccon Oil like a week go, and have used it twice only, but I am liking the results. I have very fine thin hair, and many products weigh my hair down. This one made a difference first time I tried. It left my hair very silky, smooth, less frizzy, and shiny. They also smell very nice and I can't stop touching them. I feel they look heathier then before. I have really dry ends, and it made them smooth. Plus it is not greasy at all, I used like a dime sized amount on my damp hair and then added some extra on the ends. I paid around 16 Cad $ for this, so I think this is expensive but if it keeps making my hair look this good, I don't mind the price. I was wondering if any knows whether this oil actually does make your better in long run or it just makes to look better whenever you apply.
So Im trying to grow my hair out and I wanted something that could keep my hair healthy while doing that. I have medium thickness virgin hair that's passed my shoulders. My roots tend to get oily after the second day I wash it so I put this product on The ponytail part of my hair and nowhere near my scalp. The first time I tried it I put too much and it made my hair dull and weighed down, the second time I tried it I pit too little and I felt like it did nothing for my hair, and the third time I finally got it right and it left my hair shiny,healthy looking and with lots of body! I split my damp hair in half run a pea size amount on one half then another pea size amount on the other then finally one more on the ends. So of you don't like this product the first time I suggest trying it a few more times before deciding you don't like it. Oh an this stuff smells sooooo good like a musky vanilla scent.
My hair LOVES this product. I am relaxed and have been looking for an oil to seal my ends with what seems like forever. I have tried every other oil and they are all heavy and weigh my hair down but not this. My hair absorbs this like a sponge, its light weight, smells nice and leaves an amazing shine. I am still on this first bottle and I have the .85 oz and a little goes a long way.
