Moroccanoil Review

Moroccanoil* 100ml - Fabriah.com

I'm notorious for being a ridiculously lazy person, especially when it comes to looking after my hair. I have discussed countless times on here the sad sorry state my hair is in; split ends, frazzled from bleaching, dry and coarse; it's always been in a pretty terrible condition. This is predominantly due to the fact I have a love for being (faux) blonde and cannot resist back-combing my hair. A lot. 

A simple, quick and easy way for me to give my hair a bit of a pamper is to use an oil. Now, I've tried a lot of different oils, including Lee Stafford and Macadamia, but I've never really had 'WOW' results. Yes, they made my hair feel nice and soft, but I didn't notice a big difference in overall condition, nor did I notice an improvement in the length of my hair. You see, I am on somewhat of a quest for mermaid hair and thus, I NEED to start looking after my hair properly. Enter Moroccanoil. 

The Holy Grail, the elite, the superstar of the hair oil world, Moroccanoil is a product every oil-addict just has to try. I'd wanted to try it for an absolute lifetime, but really couldn't justify the pricetag, so I kept to my somewhat mediocre drugstore hair oils, whilst hovering over the 'buy' button every now and again, before whimping out. When I was given the opportunity to review Moroccanoil, I couldn't say no. It is, afterall, a product I have lusted after for so long, and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. 

For £30.45 via Fabriah (which is a fab site I only recently discovered), you get yourself a 100ml bottle of Moroccanoil, complete with screw-top lid and a pump, which I thought was a nice little addition (as opposed to just having a pump, easier for travel etc.). The oil smells somewhat similar to the others on the market, although it definitely has a touch of luxury to it, and putting it on my hair is a real treat. For the past few months, I have been using it on the lengths and ends of my towel-dried hair once out of the shower, and occasionally on dry hair if it's been looking a tad frazzled. It makes my unruly hair SO much easier to manage; combing my hair after washing is no longer such a chore, and doesn't take half as long as it used to. Once dry, my hair feels in a much better condition, better than it has in years in fact; seriously soft and smooth. The main reason I love this oil so much, however, is the fact that my hair has grown so much since using it. I always struggle to get my hair to grow past a certain length and I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with it - looking after my hair more has definitely made an improvement, and I'm pretty sure Moroccanoil has a huge part to play in its sudden growth-spurt. I will also say though, cutting down on washing my hair has also been a great help - less washing and combing and drying means less damage, and it definitely shows. 

Overall I am so impressed with Moroccanoil and it is most definitely the best hair oil I've ever tried. Is it worth the £30+ price tag? In short, yes. Once my bottle is used up I will certainly be buying another, as I can't get enough of the stuff, and it is a super-duper easy way of looking after my hair, without much effort at all. 

Have you tried Moroccanoil before? What do you think to it?

  2. I've been debating over the Moroccan Oil, but I've tried a few (much cheaper) oils that I think are really good and would hate to spend so much for it to be pretty much the same. Such a hard decision! xx

  5. Moroccanoil is SO expensive, but definitely worth it. Although I just purchased the Babyliss Argan Oil shampoo, conditioner and oil treatment for about $40 and it works just as well.

    elissiam.

  7. I got a little bottle after I got my hair trimmed one time and I don't regret it. I think the price is completely worth it, especially for girls with hair like mine--completely unmanageable/curly freaking mess. Thanks for the review!

  9. This sounds like something I need to try, my hair is bleached too and it's so damaging, it's stopped growing and just needs more looking after in general! I think a hair oil would be a lovely treat for it, and yes I am after mermaid hair as well :) xx

  12. I've been wanting to try this for years now but the price is such a sticking point. 100ml of oil would last me forever though so I might have to just take the plunge!
