There's far too many silicones in here (the main 3 ingredients) for me to be able to recommend this to anyone or use it long-term. In the long run most silicones are not good for your hair as they seal the cuticles and prevent moisture from entering. So maybe the Argan oil in this will help? Nope unfortunately, I seriously doubt there's anywhere enough of it in here to make any difference (5th ingredient down). 

You're better off buying your own pure Argan oil (making sure it's from a reputable supplier) or using M.Oil just on the odd special occasion (as admittedly I still do!). Or better still use something that'll actually make a difference to your hair in the long run so that 'hair cosmetics' aren't required any longer! 

Love the cute M.Oil bottle. Very much liking the frizz-taming and conditioning effects of this on my medium-thick shoulder length hair (however temporary they might be) and the lovely although artificial fragrance which lingers in my hair throughout the day. Just a shame about the not-so-natural ingredients. Probably won't be a repurchase for me.

I've been using this for years and even when I try other products I always stray back. I recognize it's not a treatment, meaning your hair isn't going to be better off in the long run for using it. But the short term effect is really good, which surprises me because I have fine hair that's naturally prone to oiliness and getting weighed down. I use slightly more than a pea sized amount on damp hair, closer to the ends. As a result my hair looks smoother, less prone to flyaways, and overall slightly healthier. Using too much (whatever that means for your hair type) will definitely lead to a coated, greasy feeling. My stylist believes it's hype and that the ingredients aren't really good for your hair, or at least that there are better products out there, but I think I'm too hooked to stop.

Does nothing for my hair. Makes the ends sticky & crunchy.

After reading about how bad silicones were, I eschewed Moroccan Oil for more than a year, using all kinds of other top-shelf products (Oribe, Davines...). They were adequate -- my hair became more fly-away, and breakable at the ends. A couple of weeks ago I received the Bluemercury anniversary gift bag and it included a little Moroccan Oil bottle. I thought -- if among all these good, high-end products there is a Moroccan Oil, surely it must be good. If it were as bad as some people think, it would have died a death a long time ago from no one repurchasing.

So I used it again, after a long time, and my hair suddenly felt and looked a lot better. Maybe a silicone coating is what I need. My hair is fine, naturally blonde, virgin. My biggest hair bugaboo is breakage. While I have tried both olive oil and coconut oil for softening and conditioning my ends, these were both experimental disasters.

Yes, MO is expensive when you buy a bottle, but it lasts. And the packaging is simple: a bottle. A pump is always in my large bottle packages. But I just pour a little into a plastic sample MO bottle and keep that on the bathroom shelf.

When I worked in a salon and this product line first came out... it was amazing! The smell, the silkiness after a good blowout and flat iron... hair everywhere was bouncy and shiny and the salon smelled amazing! We were selling so many bottles of it and us hair dressers always had our small 2oz bottles tucked away in our aprons- you could not have this out as everyone else would "borrow" it. It was like we struck gold!

Over the years though, I really think they changed to formula. I wish I stocked up on this years ago because the formula now is nothing like what it used to be. Bring the original back please!

Read the ingredients!!! It consists of silicones! The same quality as pantene. Don’t be fooled by clever marketing, this product will do nothing for your hair, it will only cause severe buildup and silicone damage. Stick to oils that contain actual oils such as Kerastase Elixir Ultime.

I've purchased this multiple times and always come back to it because my hair loves argan oil. My hair is very long, wavy, dry, with frizz during the Summer. Or depending on humidity it can get very unruley in general. I have the big bottle (6oz) and I have that because I use it almost everyday or when I wash my hair. It leaves my hair so soft and smooth. It also cuts my drying time in half.

My waves are defined not frizzy when I brush my hair. On top of that it makes my hair so soft and shiny. I love argan oil it really works for my hair. I've used all kinds of brands but I always come back to this because it just works. I find buying the bigger bottle for me lasts longer. Since you only need a small amount I think it's a good deal. Definitely a repurchase for me.

I'm on the fence with this one. When I first purchased it I absolutely fell in love. It made my hair feel soft and silky, but after 30 minutes it becomes a frizzy mess. I wanted to use this to tame my baby hairs but in the end it made my fine thin hair look stringy and ugly like I hadn't washed my hair in several days. Yuck! No one wants that look. Not cute at all. Even though I barely dab into the product and rub it between my hands and it still looks like it's been drenched in oil. I thought I had initially found my HG hair treatment but it's been rather disappointing. I guess it just doesn't like my hair but I have heard it working wonders for others. I will be trying the Argan oil instead to see if iI get better results. The price isn't bad. While the bottle is small it lasted about 8 months since you only need to use very little product. I wouldn't necessarily recommend against it but everyone's hair is different so what may not work for me may work for you.

The first time I used Moroccan Oil..I was in hair looked fantastic...thick and tamed (I have frizzy hair). But when I washed was like the silicones had sealed off the cuticle and after the hair was rough strangly and unmanageable

Then I purchased pure Argan oil...nothing like it! Hair is soft manageable and silky (thats an achievement for someone with dry frizzy colored hair)
