I rushed to Stacey’z Salon to get my hair cut prior to my last TV appearance. My stylist mentioned a new product they just started carrying called Moroccanoil. I asked what it was and they gave me a sample pack to try. Now, I feel like I’ve been reading about it everywhere. It’s the hot line of products with the hip fashion magazines, A-list celebrities and more.
Usually, the magazines are talking about the original Moroccanoil hair treatment. It’s been named one of InStyle Magazine’s Best Beauty Buys of 2010 because it adds shine, de-frizzes, and protects your hair. However, I will tell you that their other products are worth a look too as they have hair masks and a bunch of other styling aids.
What Is Moroccanoil
Argan oil is the ingredient MOROCCANOIL products are based on. It’s from the Argan tree which is endemic to Morocco. Argan oil is extremely rich in antioxidants and well-known for its cosmetic benefits and UV protection. Moroccanoil uses a proprietary blend of argan oil.
Is It Eco-Friendly?
Moroccanoil uses recycled packaging wherever possible. They also do not use any animal ingredients or use animal testing.
Products for Brazilian Keratin Hair Straightening
I’ve used The original Moroccanoil hair treatment, shampoo, and conditioner. I like all of them and they don’t have sulfates, phosphates or parabens. As my Brazilian keratin was wearing out, I found that these products help extend its life better than any other products I’ve tried. There was an immediate difference. I’ve heard several other people with Brazilian keratin hair straightening mention that their hairstylists recommended Moroccanoil products to them too.
Use Moroccanoil for Straighter Hair
For my next Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatment, I’ll use the original hair treatment from the beginning. I think it probably will help keep the Brazilian keratin in longer. For my hair, I find that the original hair treatment works best for me when applied to wet hair. You can totally use it on dry hair, but if you do make sure that you start underneath at your neck and work your way to the top. This will help avoid a greasy look if you accidentally put too much oil on your hands. You only need a few drops, maximum. Therefore, one bottle goes a long way.
Where To Buy MOROCCANOIL
Moroccanoil is sold in salons. Moroccanoil says that if you buy through unauthorized sources like eBay, Amazon, or Beauty Bay, you will be buying counterfeit or diluted formulas that are not protected by their warranty. You only use a few drops at a time so a little will go a long way.
Who Can Use It
Everyone. Since it’s sold in salons, ask your stylist which products are right for you. They now have a lighter version of The Original Hair Treatment for people with fine hair. You don’t have to have straightened or chemically treated hair to use it.
