Moroccan Oil is essentially a heavenly smelling serum. I have thick, dry hair that tends to get even drier in the wintertime (boo). I mix a little less than a pea size into a dime size of any old smoothing cream, and apply to my hair after it has been towel dried. This allow for an even distribution (too much moroccan oil gives the hair a gross, greasy look. you can always add more - start off conservatively to be safe). My hair dries smooth and shiny - much smoother and shinier than if I used just a smoothing cream on my own, because I've noticed a difference. That said, it sucks that it's in bottle form with no pump...this puppy ain't cheap, and it's easy to overpour the tiny, tiny amount you need. Nevertheless, it smells like vanilla, makes my hair smooth and shiny, and is worth a repurchase.
I usually have dry, thick, coarse hair. I heat style or straighten almost every day and have coloured every 6-8 weeks. I guess I'm not very nice to my hair. The thing it, you would never know it because of Moroccan Oil!
I am so in love with this stuff! My hair is so soft and shiny with this product but not so soft that it can't be styled if that makes any sense.
I know some of the previous reviewers have mentioned that it's a bit pricey (someone mentioned $45 for a large bottle I think?). I guess price must vary from salon to salon depending on how they mark it up because I find the price not too bad at mine. A large bottle was about $30 and considering how long it lasts, it's a pretty good value.
Also, my salon has pumps on their large bottles. I'm not sure if they just rigged something up with a generic pump or if it's something available now. In any case, I do agree that having to pour the right amount into yor hand is a bit of a pain. I'll be inquiring about the pump at my next visit.
Another user of oleo-relax serum here. Coarse, curly-wavy, long hair (waist length, bit longer maybe?). Coloured maybe every 6-8 weeks.
This stuff is great. Unlike the Kerastase it doesn't relax my curls/waves too much, but it softens and gets rid of frizz. Not that the oleo weighs it down, but Moroccanoil leaves it with more body, which helps if you have heavy hair where the curls have a tendency to straighten because of the weight. Right now, this is perfect!
UPDATE: I use quite a bit though, maybe 3 dollops the size of 50p pieces, which seems to be the perfect amount. I think it's more expensive than oleo (not sure though) but, yes, it's miles better. Great shine, unbeatable softness. WOW!
This product literally transformed my hair! My hair had been through so much, coloring, relaxing, bleaching, and I straighten it everyday. Tsk, tsk, I know...My frazzled hair was just lifeless, damaged, and frizzy. I bought the smaller sized bottle for 10 dollars, and applied it that night after I got out of the shower, like you would apply any serum. When I woke up my hair was INCREDIBLY soft, and shiny! After straightening my hair I applied more to my ends and VOILA! It was AMAZING. Not greasy at all! The only thing I would change about the product is the packaging. It should come with a pump or a flipcap.
This product is amazing! I have used so many oil treatments and serums, it's ridiculous. I noticed a huge difference in a reduction in blow-dry time, the softness of my hair, the overall look of my hair, and how the rest of my products work...after just my first use! I will continue to use this and will definitely repurchase. It's a bit pricey, but most hair products are...especially good ones. I like to use high end products, such as Kerastase. So, I am willing to pay for a product that works. It is a great serum without weighing my hair down. I have not had any issues with greasiness. The bottle is not great...it's glass and awkward and you have to be careful when you pour it out...you don't want too much! I probably use a nickel-sized amount of product and my hair is past my shoulders.
HG serum! I don't know what I did before this came along. Honestly. I have long wavy hair, I straighten it with a flatiron. This seals it beautifully, smells amazing, gives it just enough shine that lasts, and makes it bunny soft, read this bunny soft. I always get great compliments on my hair after using this product. I wash my hair, towel dry it and then I add about 3 or 4 drops of the serum and comb it through. I let it air dry and then I run the flat iron through it. I add one last pea size drop when I'm done and it makes a huge difference. The packaging is not the best, but since I got a big bottle, I bought two small apothecary bottles with droppers, and made it portable. It lasts forever. You don't need to use a lot, a few drops is all it takes, this is a miracle in a bottle. I can't wait to try their other products as well.
Bought this from amazon after reading the reviews. I don't like the packaging...It was probably amazon's fault but when I opened the box, the product had leaked all over the packaging, box and bottle, but the bottle was still pretty full. I had been waiting so long to try it that i didn't send it back to wait for a new one. It smells amazing! I have been using it for about 3 weeks now. I have straight hair, but it's dry, brittle and frizzy from over styling. At first I wasn't sure if it made much of a difference, but I started to slowly use a little more and now I've found the right amount for my hair. The product absorbs really well in to the hair. Sometimes I think I've used too much because it seems greasy in some spots (especially on my bangs) but by a couple hours, it looks great. I wash my hair every other day because it's so dry, and i think the longer you leave the product in, the more benefit you'll get from it. On really dry days I even put a tiny bit on after my hair is dry and I'm always so amazed at how well it absorbs, not like most anti-frizz products I've tried. I plan on purchasing this again.
After years of damage to my hair (which used to be really shiny and soft) I finally found a product to bring back that shine and beauty. This is an amazing hair oil, makes it so soft, smooth, silky, and shiny! I love it. It IS a teensy bit expensive on my budget, but I'd pay anything to bring back beautiful hair. Also, another con is that it is a bit messy and difficult to use the bottle. I wish they would put the oil in a different type of bottle (preferably a pump) as I sometimes get too much out of the bottle. I have thick hair, so it works amazing. I love this product, I would definitely recommend this hair serum to you girls! :)
this is a great product for thick hair. i can see how it might weigh down fine hair. i love the scent although it does not linger. gives my hair body, softness and shine. it also works as a detangler for me. the only thing that i cant get past is the price. thankfully alittle goes a long way.
My hair is fried!!!, I have tried so many products from high end to drug store. I used this for the first time today and my brillo hair was somewhat smooth and had some shine. I only used a tiny bit of oil and no other products after I did a CO wash. I will continue use and update my review. I gave this a 3 on price and packaging. Is it worth 38.00 and why a glass bottle, but if this magical oil can help repair my hair I will continue to use.
