Very fine, thin hair like mine is so easily tangled that I always need to use a moisturizing hair product which will make it more manageable. Before trying out the Morrocanoil Light Treatment, nothing worked.
I`ve tried anything from using more conditioner to make my hair softer to hair masks and highly acclaimed hair detanglers in order to tame my hair and prevent it from breaking each time I brushed it.
Nothing seemed to work quite as well as I hoped, plus they had the major downside of building up in my hair or making my hair look flat, without volume. Tough 1st world problems, I know, but something had to be done.
I consulted with all the hair stylists I know and they recommended a hair oil instead of my usual go-to products. The Maroccanoil hype caught up to me and then I knew I had to have it.
Moroccanoil Treatment with argan oil
Moroccanoil was presented to me by a hair stylist as a versatile hair product that can be used as a conditioner – when used as a hair mask, before washing, as a styling tool – to highlight certain strands and add definition to the hair ends, as well as a quick finishing tool, in order to camouflage split ends or eliminate frizz.
Particularly for fine hair, it worked as a detangler. And trust me when I say – IT WORKED! This was the first product of its kind that I ever tried and I`m grateful, that it finally offered a viable solution to my hair troubles.
The Moroccanoil is a residue-free, nourishing hair product, available in two formulas – the original Moroccanoil Treatment and the light version.
I was unsure about which one was the right fit for me, but thankfully I received samples of each and I was able to see the difference between the original and the light Moroccanoils.
The original Moroccanoil treatment is rich and nourishing, with a higher percentage of argan oil in the formula. However, it doesn`t interact with other products and it doesn`t leave a greasy film on top of the hair. It is suitable for dry, coarse, wavy or curly hair.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light Review – for fine, thin hair
The light Moroccanoil is designed for fine, thin hair or for those who have oily hair. I use it as a treatment and let it sink in a few hours before I wash my hair. It completely transforms and camouflages dry ends, ads vitality and shine to strands and protects the hair against sun damage. I use it as a leave in treatment, when I go to the beach.
The formula contains Argan oil, fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs quickly and transports lost proteins to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.
The silicone contained in the formula are very smoothing and not greasy at all, however this ingredient eventually builds up on hair and will eventually have to be stripped with a detoxifying shampoo to remove build-up. Another thing that I don`l love about the formula is the fact that it contains color additives (D&C Yellow 11 and Red 11).
The smell is a vanilla musk, strong at first but very pleasant throughout the day. It`s immediately recognizable, which is a very good marketing tool for Moroccanoil.
I use the original Moroccanoil Treatment before I wash my hair, a drop of the light version before I blow dry it and another drop after I finish styling it. A small amount is necessary to achieve incredible results, which is actually a great thing since the product is pretty expensive. I strongly advise against using it before you use a flat iron or a curling iron, as oil and heat aren`t a good combo.
I haven`t used any other products from the brand, but if they are as good as the Moroccainoil Treatment oil, I can see why they are so successful.
