Clean Shiny Hair, Moroccan Style

Every time I end up doing a hair related post I normally always get stuck on the fact that I naturally have a very oily scalp. That means a lot of the products work well but they are not made for me. I initially thought this before I started using the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume conditioner as I was not expecting it to work for me as an everyday shampoo and conditioner. What i thought is that this could be part of a weekly hair treat, you know one on a Sunday afternoon or when i don’t have to face the world afterwards because my scalp reacts and makes my entire hair look horrible. Well, I was wrong. So very wrong. This has become my everyday (sometimes every second day) hair washing ritual.

I am officially hooked on this product… but before I go into details, lets talk about the product itself….

The packaging is very Moroccanoil style generic, it doesn’t look like much 2 250ml bottles, one white – the conditioner and the other blue – the shampoo. It is specifically for fine hair and those that are looking for some extra volume. It is sulphate free and not tested on animals. It is packed with rich nutrients and argan oil to enrich the hair and make it more healthy, shiny and make it have more body.Moroccanoil

It ticks all of the above and more…  both of the products have a masculine woody scent with a slight accent of a floral note, nothing too empowering though as this Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to be unisex. They do however leave your hair with a very sexy scent that lingers when your hair is flicked.

The Extra Volume Shampoo it is a creamy gel which lathers up quickly and rinsing out easily. It leaves my problematic scalp feeling moisturised but not overly stimulated with no irritation.

The Extra Volume Conditioner is a smooth, lightweight and creamy formula. I visibly noticed that with ease it lifted the sign of any tangles (thank you Cape Town wind!).

Overall, when my hair has been washed with the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Extra Volume Conditioner I have noticed a visible difference in the condition of my scalp. This I believe is down to the rich argan oil which is present in the products. My hair can last up to two days with no washing (huge achievement for me) and retaining its shine while being naturally lifted from the root. A little certainly goes a long way, to my shampoo bottle I have used only half of my conditioner. So I will need to restock on my shampoo before I have finished my conditioner.

I am going to be stocking up this weekend from my nearest hair salon… You can get your paws on the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo for R290 and the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner for R310!

Rocking Moroccanoil

I recently wrote a small introductory guide to Argan Oil and its uses and benefits for the hair, scalp and body. Since then I have had the pleasure of trying to use the salon renowned brand Moroccanoil. I knew of the brand before but I didn’t know them well. Having had seen Moroccanoil products sitting in salon windows and walking by and not taking much notice because, like I have said before, everyone claims that their Moroccan oil products are better than the next. So, when the products landed up on my beauty desk – I had to do some research to find out what sets this brand apart?

To begin with, Moroccanoil is a salon exclusive product  being that you can only buy this product from a professional hair salon. This ensures that the right products for your hair needs will be readily available with the correct advice from a hair professional’s guidance. Secondly, the Moroccanoil product was one of the first products to infuse the hair care market with Argan Oil as a main ingredient and a lot of later products were based upon the success and results of the Moroccanoil. The formulas contain powerful antioxidants, nutrients and are praised by celebrities, stylists and consumers alike for the plain purpose that these products produce unrivalled results.

“I live my brand every day. Moroccanoil is a reflection of what I want from a beauty company as a consumer. Authenticity, effectiveness and ease of use.” – Carmen Tal, Co-founder

Noteworthy product that has spiked a lot of interest in my life has to be this one...  "Moroccanoil® has developed a professional regulating treatment to control the scalp and revive hair. Oily Scalp Treatment is a concentrated formula of antioxidant-rich argan oil and essential ginger oil. It helps to correct imbalances and soothe inflammation of the hair follicle, which manages oil production. Roots are lifted and hair takes on more body and life. Used pre-shampoo, it soothes the scalp and keeps it from getting too oily or dry."

I am going to be putting this product on my Dear Santa list though because it sounds like its the one I need in my life right now.

I am excited to start using my MoroccanOil products but I have a backlog of other products to finish first. I will be sure to share my experience of the products once they work some wonders on my hair.
