Advantages: Effect on hair
Disadvantages: The price!!!!
I had been wanting to try this hair oil for literally ages! I already have numerous other hair oils though, so I couldn't really justify buying another one, especially such an expensive one.
Luckily I got it as a Christmas present & I have to say, I am very impressed and it is one of my favourites! I am trying not to use it too much though because I don't want it running out any time soon as I don't think I will be re purchasing it due to the price, I just can't bring myself to spend over £30 for a hair oil!
This price is for a 100ml bottle, and a smaller 25ml bottle is £12, which is still really expensive in my opinion! A 200ml bottle can also be found in some shops and on various websites, but this retails at a mind boggling £50!!
Ok, so £50 might not seem like much to some people - in fact im sure all the WAG's and millionaires will think this is a bargain. As a young mum trying to save money where possible though I honestly can not even consider spending that much money. So, like I said I'm glad mine was a present!
So, what is so special about morrocan oil? Well, it gives hair a gorgeous shine and keeps it well soft, silky & well conditioned. It can help nourish damaged hair and repair hair that has been heat and colour damaged when it is used often. It sinks into the hair and doesn't leak any greasy residue, which I like as coconut oil needs washing out after I've used it because its so greasy, but this doesn't need washing out!
Morrocan oil can also be used to provide intense moisture on dry skin, and can help with skin conditions such as eczema but given the price I just use mine on my hair. I always use mine after I've washed and towel dried my hair before blow drying it. Personally, I usually only use it on the ends of my hair as my scalp tends to get greasy and i don't want the oil to make it even greasier, however after I've used it on the ends of my hair there is usually a really tiny layer left on my hands so I will work this into my roots and it hasn't made my scalp greasy at all but this is because I'm so careful with the amount I use.
A really small amount of the oil is needed and it is obviously important you don't use too much else it will make your hair look and feel really greasy. I know I said it is non greasy (it is if you use a tiny amount) but like any oil if it is poured onto your hair it'll look horrific. The oil leaves my hair feeling really soft, silky smooth and some how it makes my hair straighter, even when I haven't straightened it. I have no idea how but it does! It makes it feel lighter and more manageable too, so it's an all round good product. I also love that it keeps my hair looking more controlled, and my hair doesn't get half as frizzy as it did before I started using this oil!
I do like this oil and it is certainly very effective and it does what the people who make and sell it claim it does, however cheaper hair oils like Argan and coconut oil honestly have pretty much the same effect, this one is just less greasy. I would have given it five out of five stars had it been a little more realistically and sensibly priced, but due to the price I have knocked a star off.
Summary: Way too expensive, but it is one of my favourites.
