I rushed to my stylist for a hair cut prior to my last TV appearance. She 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 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. I noticed an immediate difference. I’ve heard several other people with Brazilian keratin hair straightening mention that their stylists 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.

Have you used Moroccanoil products? What do you think?

    Mary, ask your hair guy if you should use the light version or regular.

  7. Hi! I was searching info about argan oil and found your blog. True! -you hear about something new, and the next day, you hear everywhere about it. I’ve heard it’s the best oil you can get. And not only for hair, but for skin too!

  8. Hi

    I just wanted to let you know that BeautyBay.com is an approved and authorised seller of Moroccanoil and that the products we sell are 100% authentic and sourced direct from the supplier.

    Many thanks


    1. Thanks for sharing. The information I posted about online retailers selling MOROCCANOIL is directly from the MOROCCANOIL website.

  9. I LOVE this stuff, and have been using it about a year, when I run out, it’s awful, so now I keep a stash of it, stopping by from sits, anne

  10. Ooooh, can’t wait to give this stuff a shot! Thanks for the tip.

    Stopping by from SITS.

  11. Sounds fabulous! I’m going to have to give this a try! I’m a new follower from Market Mommies.

  12. Pretty good information is provided over here about MoroccanOil. It is only a matter of choosing the right MoroccanOil products to achieve the type of hair you wish to develop.

  13. The reason Moroccanoil state that any products found sold online are fake or diluted is because they want buyers to pay utmost prices so as to keep a brand image of a high quality high priced product. It is illegal to price fix and insist on it being sold at rrp, yet they cut off supplies to us GENUINE online sellers, because they basically want to rip off you, the customer.
    The moroccanoil I was selling was genuine, and purchased from a hairdressing wholesalers who supply to hair salons.
    The only reason they state that online products may be fake is because it is the best they can do legally to control customers buying it at full price. £29.50 a bottle is ridiculas, I was selling this stuff at £22 a bottle and still making profit… so who are the con artists, the sellers who are trying to get you a good deal? Or the company marketting this product who have stated they will no longer supply such sellers… despite the fact that price fixing likle this is like running a cartel…?!

  14. My hairdresser recommended for me a Moroccan oil- Argan oil-http://bit.ly/Morocan1. which she told me she uses on all of her clients regardless of their hair and I must say, it was the best product I ever used! I recommend it to anyone, One word of caution, if you have very thin and limp hair … you might want to use very little since it’s hard to get away from products that weight down your hair.

  15. I use a different product that works great and has Morroccan Oil, it’s Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector and keeps my hair soft, shiny and healthy, preventing any split ends or any other damage. I luv it 😀
