Review – Moroccanoil Treatment

29 Apr

Moroccanoil has been out for a while, and I really didn’t want to like it. I know that sounds nuts, but it started showing up in EVERY salon, high end, low end, but always the same price and attempting to distinguish itself as premium by not allowing salons to include it in their own promotions. This frustrated me. If you’re high end, be high end, have standards of where you sell the product because not all salons are created equal. What I do like, is that every bottle is tagged and so they know exactly where that bottle comes from. This means, it’s easy to track diverted products and prevent fakes from showing up in non professional shops.  And now that you’ve heard my thoughts on their distribution methods, what about the product itself?

Moroccanoil, is actually an entire line of products that are all based around Argan Oil and their signature product Morrocanoil Treatment. The only product I’ll speak of in this review is the treatment.

As I mentioned, I wanted to hate it. I hate fad hair products and they usually turn out to be a bust, anyone remember the Brazilian Blowout recall by health authorities? But the fact of the matter is that this product is good, actually it’s better than good, it’s great.

My hair is bleached and I flat iron it pretty much every day, so you might say that it’s a wee bit damaged. Also, and sorry to gross you out, but my scalp has always been super flaky from dry skin. I put Morrocanoil Treatment in on damp hair, just the tiniest little drop. I emulsify it between my hands and then put it on scalp and hair before blow-drying. Let me re-enforce that I use one drop, the treatment is an oil and I can see things getting really slippery, really fast, if you got carried away. Because my hair is bleached I always buy the light version of the treatment as the regular one I find a bit too heavy and it can leave my blonde hair slightly yellow.

What have I noticed? Well, believe it or not, after a few uses my hair dries faster. Yes, this sounds like total BS, but the treatment helps smooth the porosity of your hair and thus it absorbs less water and voila! Hair dries faster. Also, my hair is softer, smoother and my scalp….way less flaky! It’s, forgive the overused expression, my new “go-to” product. My only dislike is the smell, everyone else I know LOVES the smell, but I am super sensitive and it’s a bit much for me, but other than that it really is one of my favourite products.

I would definitely recommend the Morrocanoil Treatment, I can’t speak for the other products, but the treatment is a great product to have on hand.
