Moroccan Oil treatment for fine and light coloured hair - review

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll probably have heard me moaning before that I have nightmare hair that gets really greasy at the roots after just a day.  So, you might be wondering why on earth I'd want to use a hair oil - well, I have really dry ends and mid-lengths.  As I said, nightmare hair!  Because of this weird combo, I opted to try the light version of Moroccan Oil.




Moroccan Oil is designed to be absorbed quickly, creating instant shine and giving long-term conditioning benefits without a sticky reside.  Because my hair is so grease prone, I've only been using the oil on the bottom half before blow drying.

It's really good for de-tangling and I've not needed to use any additional products for styling my hair.  I've just realised that I've not actually used straighteners all week while I've been using Moroccan Oil, as it leaves my hair really smooth (I have naturally straight hair).

As I've got really dry ends, I probably could do with trading up to the original version of Moroccan Oil, but I won't because of my grease-prone roots.  On one of the days this week I ran my brush through the front of my hair when it must have had some of the oil on it from the ends, and it did end up looking greasy pretty quickly, so I have to be careful of that when using it, but anyone with normal to dry hair would be fine.

I've really enjoyed using this - it's got a really nice smell to it but I have no idea how to begin describing it!  I'm hoping to see a general improvement in the condition of my ends as I continue using up the bottle - at this stage I'm pretty sure I'll be buying the full size.

You can buy Moroccan Oil here at feelunique with free delivery - £30.45 for 100ml or £12.85 for 25ml

Have you tried Moroccan Oil?  Do you have any tips on using it?

  4. I got a set of Moroccan Oil products from Buyapowa but I haven't used them yet because I'm still overseas but I can't wait to use them as I've just had my hair cut and dyed and I want to take better care of my hair and hearing so many great things about Moroccan Oil. I also have the shampoo and conditioner and deep cleansing mask which was on www.buyapowa.com you should check out that site for bargain beauty.

    1. That's why I kept it away from my roots. I thought the same as you, but as I have such dry ends it's like I need to care for my hair in two opposite ways all the time! I just commented on your blog to see what shampoos you recommend for the greasies! xx

  11. I've also tried the light version and love it so much more than the normal one. I only apply it to the ends though as i have quite oily hair too. I got mine from www.hairtrade.com as it was cheaper than other places, plus they often have deals on as it was on there half price not that long ago!
