I bought a lovely set of hair products by the Moroccanoil brand from the Regis website. It was on offer at the time or I probably would not have bought it but I had enjoyed using the oil so much I really wanted to try other hair care products from their range.
The thing that really swinged it...
.. was the lovely white mock crock bag that came with the shampoo, conditioner and hair oil set. The conditioner and shampoo were both 250 ml so I figured they were a big enough size to last me a while.
The shampoo and conditioner are identically packaged with the shampoo bottle a lovely turquoise colour and the conditioner being white. It's a lid that you push down and it opens a lip so you can squeeze out the product.
It's a fairly standard conditioner in use to be honest, the white gloopy stuff with a medium consistency that helps it to stick in the hair for a while. I usually use this in the shower and leave it in for a couple of minutes before rinsing. I put that two minutes to good use and use a body exfoliator or body oil, it helps with the impatient waiting time I find.
I find that it helps a bit but I still need to use a protector or detangling product in my hair afterwards. I struggle to comb my hair when wet, it is so knotty so the conditioner helps a bit but it works more after it's dry keeping the moisture locked in a bit.
It is worth shopping around as you can get better deals on the sets (I find the other products always come in handy anyway) but a shampoo and conditioner set is around £20. You get 250 ml for this.
Would I use again? Yes, most definitely. It's a great conditioner but costs a lot on the downside.
This is a beuatiful range of product from the MORROCOCAN OIL company. The are a number of them out there, this one is distingiushed by the bright blue and orange logo with a prominent M.
This is a fantastic and I would highly recommend this product to anyone who would love to see their hair have moisutred after dying and lifted at the roots.
The products combined to crete such a wonderful treatment that leaves your hair smelling sensational is:
ANTI-OXIDANT RICH ARGAN OIL
VITAMINS A AND E
This is perfect for hair that is continually being dyed and repeatedly exposed to sunshine, which shouldn't be such a problem in Blighty but heat in any way to your hair can create damage and heart ache to man, women or child. Okay maybe not child.
But if you have tried EVERYTHING maybe you haven't tried this?
After washing first with MOROCCAN OIL SHAMPOO in the same range, which is advisbale because it will provide maximum results both products are designed to work together, I apply the conditioner was a few minutes longer.
It is the scent that captivates you straight away, it smells like an exotic summer holiday and that you are miles away in a SPA.
The cream easily glides through your hair and you don't need a huge amount, less is definitely more. On rinsing you would be forgiven, due to the sleek feel that the product was still in your hair but its not it's that smooth.
I always follow the advice of haridressing manuels and let my hair towel dry by 80% ish before blow drying it to reduce the damage after paying for it to look great and the cut last longer.
This made my hair much more easier to comb through, it was tangle free, and sleeker looking.
Honestly this was fantastic and the results were great, I even recieved some comments saying how bouncy and shiny it looked.
This retailed at £17 and I would say it was worth it
I have been using this conditioner for a little while now, I'm probably on my fourth or fifth bottle.
The packaging is very simple, I wouldn't say it looks like a premium conditioner, but it does the job.
The product has a really nice smell which is hard to describe - it's quite distinctive but I really like it. It's a thick white conditioner, and feels luxurious. Once applied you need to leave it on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing. When you rinse is when you really start to feel how great this product is. As you rinse it off your hair feels beautifully silky smooth. When you then go on to dry your hair it makes it really soft, silky, shiny and healthy. As someone with highlighted hair who uses heat styling on an almost daily basis, this conditioner does keep my hair feeling nourished and prevents it from feeling dry. The product itself really is great.
Now for the negative. The price. This is the most expensive conditioner I have ever bought. At around £19 a bottle it really is very pricey. Although I love the product, I do think that when I finish my current bottle I'll move on to the Aussie brand, which I think gives a similar result for a fraction of the price.
As soon as I used this conditioner I knew I had to write a review about it.
My hair is long, dry and moisture thirsty, especially at the ends which have been bleached and heat damaged. As you can imagine I am always on the search to find a product which saves me from having to chop off the split ends which start to show through flyaways just 4 inches or so away from my roots.
I came across this conditioner at a friend of mines actually and borrowed it mindlessly. Personally, I didn't think much of the plain old packaging, and with my glasses off I slopped a whole load of it into my hair in the shower (obviously not realising just how expensive it is!!).
The bottle itself is rather on the plain side in my opinion, I can't decide if I think this looks a bit rubbish or adds to the whole expensive minimalistic design of it. The bottle has a cap that flips up when you press down on the other side and the product squeezes out quite easily of the plain cylindrical bottle.
While my hair was drying I couldn't help noticing just how soft and smooth it had become and asked my friend about the conditioner I had used and realised it was actually part of the Moroccan oil range.
The conditioner itself retails at around £15-£20 for a 250ml bottle, which in my opinion is just way too expensive for me considering my hair length and student status. It is such a shame and if this was reduced at some point to under the £10 mark it may just be a holy grail find for me.
Once again, I didn't really think much of the smell, a little masculine in my opinion but very subtle so not such a big deal really. The consistency is lovely, sort of like thick custard (in a good way!). It is a yellowy cream colour and goes onto the hair easily, so really only a small amount is needed. The instructions involve applying it to wet hair (excess water squeezed out) and waiting 1-2 minutes. This was ideal for me because I absolutely can't stand hair masks for clean wet hair that need to be left on for 10 minutes, who has the time to walk around with sloppy wet conditioner in their hair dripping all over the floor?
Instantly after rinsing my hair feels a lot more manageable and healthier. The conditioner is still very lightweight and leaves no feeling of residue on my hair. It has got to be one the best conditioners I have ever used.
It is described as containing a "highly concentrated formula rich in antioxidant argan oil, reconstructive keratin and fatty acids" so I would assume this conditioner is much better for damaged hair in need of protein due to chemical colouring etc.
Another great thing about the shampoo and conditioner in this range is that they are sulfate free which is great for people like me with a sensitive scalp and very obsessed with natural products! I hope to try the shampoo also, if I save up first of course!
