Maybe this just wasn't the right product for me since I have thin wavy hair, but it was HORRIBLE. What a waste of money! It made my hair dry, crispy, flat, and greasy. I've used better $3 drugstore products.

well i have a love hate relationship with this product.
hate: i hate the scent, it is very baby powderish and cheap smelling.
the pump does not work until the very end of the product so you have to deal with that. since it is so expensive i am pretty mad about that.
you have to be careful how much you use or it will be somewhat heavy ont he hair.
love: my long waves are well defined and shiney and this product reactivates the next day by just adding a water spray.
it works also as a leave in conditioner.
it laast forever so being expensive is not that much of a problem.
you can not feel it in your hair at all.
this is the only hair product i buy repeatedly and i am a hair junkie.
Ah, but the stupid scent. some just love it though.so you have to smell it for yourself. i guess i like the flowery more than baby powder.

The cream is fanstatic for my coarse curly hair and, if you can put up with the dispenser, it is well worth it - it really does perform wonders.
The dispenser is a disgrace for such an expensive product. It seems every second one I buy, the pump doesn't work - I have to keep my old pump and switch it between bottles. Also, the pump stops pumping out the cream when there is still a substantial amount left. Cue: mess in the bathroom as you have to try and extract the product from the bottle. I don't understand why they wouldn't have this product in some tube. I currently have 5 half empty bottles on my shelf because I can't bear to deal with the mess of using the remainder of the cream. A definite let down.

I bought this product on a recommendation from my hairdresser, after LOVING the scent. She said it would work well on my curly, thick, often frizzy hair. It certainly has. The product lasts forever even though it is very expensive. I took off a lippie for the nasty parabens.

This is by far the best product that is able to control my frizz in the summer time! I have thick wavy hair and I recently got it cut short, so now I don't have any weight to keep my hair tamed. I like to air towel dry my hair but when it's still damp I put a dime size of it in my hair, put it into braids and then go to bed. I wake up with my frizz contained and a little hair spray to keep it that way. Even though the price is kinda high, I would still buy this again. This product is definitely worth it. It lasted a long time too. I had this 3 years with my mom and I using it and there's still a little bit that will probably last for a few months. In conclusion, I love this stuff! :)

I have always hated long reviews, so I'll make this one short and sweet.
Moroccanoil, although very hyped up, does deliver to its promise. It leaves curls shiny, bouncy and frizz free. KEEP IN MIND, if you have fine, thin hair, it will probably leave your hair greasy looking if you use more than a dime sized amount. I have very thick, dry hair, so I can use a lot of this product and it does not look oily. The price is ... expensive. Sally's beauty shop offers a knock off, One 'n Only Argon Oil curl cream, which is only about $15. I have yet to try it, but my hair dresser uses it on all her clients and says it works just the same.
IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT SILICONES:
Please don't listen to complete strangers on the internet about what it does and doesn't do to your hair. They are not experts. I called my hair dresser and asked her what exactly silicones are and will do. She said that:
- yes, silicones coat your hair. That is what gives you the shine and soft feeling
- silicones WILL come off in the shower, even with a sulfate free shampoo. The only instance they will not come out in the shower is if you only wash your hair once per week, yet you apply moroccanoil every day. As long as you wash your hair 2-3 times a week, ITS OK.
- SILICONES WILL NOT DAMAGE YOUR HAIR GUYS. IT WILL NOT DO ANYTHING OF THE SORT. When I asked if they damage hair, she burst into laughter. "Of course they don't," she told me.
IN CONCLUSION (hm this turned out longer than I liked)
- moroccanoil lives up to the hype.
- SILICONES DO NOT DAMAGE YOUR HAIR.
- One 'n Only Argan Oil does the same job, yet it is half the price.

I love this. Like another reviewer, I’m also surprised at the poor reviews. I have long 3a 3b curls. I towel dry my hair in soft tee shirt for maybe five minutes. I then use 2.5 to 3 pumps, distributing evenly from the bottom to the top. I then ramdomly place clips throughout my head, scrunching my hair up. I either dry naturally or diffuse. I recently discovered my new favorite method, the ‘drive and dry.’ Since its dark when I leave for work, I can hop in my car with my wet head in clips, looking ridiculous, and blast the heat full force…remove the clips and gently toss. I’ve also learned, as with any hair product, it’s best to change it up every couple of weeks for a few days…As far as the price, ouch, but but but, for me, it’s worth every penny.
UPDATE: 05/01/2012 - I am on my second bottle and still loving it. If you're not sure about this product because of the negative reviews, give it a try, but just keep your receipt in case you are truly disappointed.

Love the smell and the packaging is great, but sadly it's just too heavy for my hair. Although my hair didn't look greasy the day I used it, the next day my hair was gross. I don't like to wash my hair every day, so this isn't good for me. The price is outrageous. I truly feel there are much better, cheaper products out there.

VERY GOOD for thick CURLY hair. Its just sooo moisturizing which is the very best thing to define my curls beautifully. I was using Aveda curly style prep in the winter, but in the summer, the humidity made my hair super frizzy. So I switched to Moroccan oil and it works wonders. I also started highlighting my hair, which makes it more dry, so this is the only product that will tame it. I also love the smell.
*UPDATE* NOV 2012 - My hair is no longer responding so well to this product - maybe because the weather is more dry. I have alternated with DevaCurl Light Styling Gel and finish with Deva Curl Set it Free. Also I use Purpose by Mindset haircare. And switch these all around from time to time, which seems to be the best option for my hair.

I tried this twice, the 2nd time using much less product. My hair still looked greasy and it didn't even do very much for my frizz. I'll probably have to use a clarifying shampoo to get it all out. Blech!

I have thick long wavy hair. I live in NY so usually in the winter I straighten my hair and in the summer leave it curly. This product did not define my curls nor fight the frizz.

I have naturally wavy thick hair. I usually always straighten my hair but I wanted to give my hair a break so I started going on a hunt for good products to keep my wavy frizzy hair intact. Ive been through KMS, Mark Anthony, John Freida, Redken Smooth Down and then a stylist suggested this. I had heard the moroccan oil series was good, so I decided I'd splurge and go and pay $36.95 CAD for this. OMG what a waste of money. It was horrible I tried it alone and with my chi silk insusion and then with AG recoil curl activator. Each time it gave me very frizzy hair that was weighed down and felt horrible. I even gave it to my sister who has very curly hair and she hated it too it had the same effect of her. This is not a product for us wavy haired girls. I am now trying the AG details defining creme and the AG recoil curl activator together and we will see how it goes. If it doesn't work screw it I'll stick to straightening my hair for the rest of my life

I have really thick curly, very wavy hair. I have been using the Moroccan oil, and I have wanted to try the curl cream. I love the smell of the Moroccan oil, it did take a bit to get used to, it seems it will be stronger than it really is but in the end my hair smells nice, and the curl cream is the same way. It extremely easy to use and like other reviewers have said quite versatile.I just work it in when my hair is just slightly wet, and it makes my hair very soft, relaxes my sort of stiff waves. Soft, and silky is just the only way I can describe it.

I love anything from the Moroccan oil line. I use everything from the line from the curl cream to the serum and I swear by it all. The price point is high but considering I only wash my hair twice a week (and only leave it curly every so often) it lasts a long time. If you have thick, dry, coloured hair this just might work for you. It does for me and it smells great too!

I was excited to dry this product after all the hype behind this line. I've used other styling creams before with much success so I expected an even better performance from this product. This is definitely not a "styling cream". My hair had no hold, a smell I did not care for and an oily residue. It created more frizz and less definition. Just not for me.

I bought this last week at the recommendation of my stylist. I told her I was looking for something to define my waves and give them a bit of a messy bedhead look. NOTE - My hair is NOT very curly, just wavy.
I have fine, wavy hair. It is thin but I have a lot of it. It has a nice natural wave and I actually like it more in humid weather because I get more curl and volume.
My stylist layered my hair to emphasize the waves and we added a teeny tiny dab of the curl cream. It defined the waves more and if I crunched up my hair, it added a little more wave to the ends. It smoothed out the frizz and gave me more body. We played around with it a bit and if I twisted chunks, it looked messy and beachy.
I've tried Redken Rewind and liked the messy beachy look but it was a bit too sticky. I've used grooming creams and while they smooth the frizzies, they almost make my hair too silky and smooth and I lose the volume and body because it flattens out the shaft. And Jonathan Dirt was way to waxy and sticky and just frizzed out the flyaways. MO curl cream seems to be the happy medium.
I only need less than half a pump and can just lightly run it through the ends of my hair after blowdrying. I've also tried using it while wet and if I twist and scrunch it through wet hair, it defines the curls before drying.
It's super expensive so I might not buy it again, but on the other hand, I probably won't have to repurchase because this bottle might just last me yeeeeeeaaars.
Edited: I'm not understanding some posters' comments about how great the natural ingredients are...it's mostly petroleum. I wish I read it more closely before I bought it. Also, the fragrance is kinda nasty. It's like old lady perfume.

I needed a leave-in cream to protect my hair from blowdrying constantly so I bought this by mistake, because my intetion was to buy the STYLING CREAM. Even so, Im wearing this after I wash my hair then blowdry. The first time I used I applied about of a coin size amount: huge mistake. The next day my hair was already grease and oily. So it´s a thick, very dense product. I wont be buying this again, since Im always blowdrying my hair straight. I will try it one day when I want to leave my hair dry natural and curly... definetly I think this product might work for really really culy hair! Ohh and my hair is not even oily, it´s very dry so I think people with very oily hair should run away from this.

This didn't do much of anything to my curls. And it was very expensive. Very disappointing part of the whole Moroccan oil fad.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Other
I love Moroccan Oil!!
I makes my hair so shiny and soft after I blow dry my naturally curly hair straight. I will continue to buy this product again and again. The only complaint I have is the smell. It doesn't have the best smell but it is still worth it because it gives your hair amazing silkiness. But if you have naturally oily or thin hair... use in very small amounts... it still makes a huge difference!!

So disappointing. It's hugely expensive but I LOVE the treatment so I thought I would splurge and maybe find an awesome product to define and defrizz my thin wavy hair. It's very mediocre. Frizz didn't go away and it didn't define my waves above ear level very well. I don't think this product is meant for fine haired people at all. It weighed my hair down very easily if I used too much.
The packaging drives me NUTS. It's a pump bottle and the inside gets all dry and crusty between uses so every time you pump out some product you have to pick out a nasty crusty orange chunk before you can rub the product between your hands and use it. So annoying. It seems like you get a decent amount though since a little goes a long way.
I think it cost me around 35$ which is insane, it totally wasn't worth it. Go grab aveda's be curly cream instead, it works SO much better and is way cheaper!
