I was out shopping last week and noticed quite a few argan oil brands looking way too similar to world-famous Moroccan Oil.
Just to Clarify – Moroccan Oil is a BRAND. The main ingredient is obviously Argan Oil that is sourced from Morocco. Moroccan Oil is not sold at Drugstores in South Africa. It is a premium “salon exclusive” brand.
Don’t be fooled into buying cheaper imitations such as Oil of Morocco or Argan Oil of Morocco etc. There is only one “Moroccan Oil” and the packaging is a gorgeous Aqua-Blue and bright Orange. You should still be cautious as packaging is easily replicated these days. I often hear people tell me how greasy the Moroccan Oil from Avon is ??? Avon does not sell Moroccan Oil guys. You mean argan oil from Avon obviously.
Anyway – I love this oil. It is intensely nourishing and rather thick in consistency. This product is very versatile – It can be used to style, treat & repair. I have very oily hair naturally, So I refrain from using this when styling. If you have dry and frizzy hair, This is perfect for you.
I like to use this oil to repair and nourish my color damaged hair. I add a few drops of the Moroccan Oil into my Hair Masque to create a more intense treatment and then apply it to my cleansed & towel dried hair. I love sleeping in with this masque for ultimate results.
You will wake up to rather stiff, heavy hair but once you rinse and seal with a conditioner – Your hair will be soft and full of life again.
Just a note: If you suffer from hair loss, Please do not use this Moroccan oil or any other oil on your hair. I will do another post on why you shouldn’t oil your hair if you are hair loss-prone or battling alopecia.
