Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years you'll know that Moroccanoil is one of the most talked about products in the haircare industry. I first came across it when a hairdresser applied it after washing my hair, which intrigued me as I'd never heard of an oil being used on hair before. Keen to know more I questioned my hairdresser who briefly explained that she used it on my hair to help tame the frizziness & to leave it looking sleeker & feeling smoother.
Moroccanoil light is exactly the same product as the original Moroccanoil however it is just formulated to be more suitable for fine or fair coloured hair. My hair is neither of these, it's dark & very thick but the reason I prefer the light version is because my hair isn't weighed down by product as much. When straightening my hair after using Moroccanoil it would often feel heavy & make it harder for the heat to actually work through the residue left behind. I apply a 10p sized amount of oil into the palm of my hands & then spread it evenly through towel dried hair, mostly focusing on the very ends. It helps relieve the dead tips & repairs split ends by almost bonding them together again, it really makes a huge difference to the appearance of brittle hair strands. Even though my hair becomes silky soft & shiny it doesn't become difficult to work with & once I've styled it my hair appears to be in amazing condition. You'd expect an oil to leave your hair feeling greasy & even perhaps sticky after using it, yet Moroccanoil quickly absorbs into each hair strand & it's not apparent that an oil has been used at all. It provides a whole host of benefits including moisturising & conditioning, improves the elasticity & acts as a barrier towards harmful environmental stresses such as UV damage. I've also discovered this can be used on dry hair as a hair mask when your hair is in need of some extra TLC which I'll have to try out soon! The only downside to Moroccanoil Light is the price tag, at over £30 a bottle it's seems crazy for an oil but the first bottle I had lasted me well over a year which is how I justify it! It's definitely a luxury hair care item, but one that I couldn't live without, especially because it's so noticeable just how much my hair benefits from using it.
