Hiya ladies.

So I've heard about this product from a few people and have also come across it in magazines from celebs and professional hairdressers raving about it. I was in the hairdressers a few months ago and the hairdresser recommended this stuff. There was this little bottle of 'MoroccanOil', and of the same range included shampoos, conditioners, creams, masks and sets. I decided to try it for myself! I bought this little 25ml bottle for €15. Pricey for such a small amount of product I thought, but nonetheless I was eager to give it a try. She told me it would condition and strengthen and add a lovely shine to it. I couldn't wait to try it. Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I am aware 'MorrocanOil' is not an actual oil - it's just the brand name. The actual oil it contains is called Argan oil (which is mostly found in Morocco) and has lots of different vitamins to nourish the hair.
I applied it to my hair when it was damp after washing it as I was instructed to on the back of the box. The first time I used it I definitely used too much. You barely need a thumbtack sized amount and you rub it into your hands to warm it up and then through the ends of your hair. I realised I had used too much was when it was dry. It left my hair flat and a bit greasy, but I knew it was my own fault. 

Next time I used much less and it was lovely. A really smooth oil with a beautiful smell. It definitely left my hair feeling softer but I have to say I didn't see a major difference visibly. Coincidentally Fleur De Force made a YouTube video on this very same product and she mentioned that she uses it after she washes and dries her hair. I commented her asking does it not leave it greasy and she told me to use just a small bit on the ends of the hair and that it was great if your hair was dry. So I decided to give that a go. I'm so glad she told me to try it as it did make a difference. It majorly smoothened out my hair and I still get that beautiful smell! I feel like it's re-hydrating and good for my hair, especially the ends. As for the price for the size of the bottle - it will last for a good while for sure.

For those of you who are, or who try to be a bit more eco-friendly, Moroccan Oil products are made of recycled materials where possible and do not test on animals. I've heard of some trouble with counterfeit Moroccanoil products being sold so if you're interested in buying try getting it from an actual salon.
