I haven’t been to a hair salon or makeup trailer yet that doesn’t have this in their go-to product stash. It’s no surprise that Moroccan Hair Oil has become a cult favorite and Allure’s Readers’ Choice Award Winner 2012 and 2011. Hair loves this multi-tasker.
A few drops of this liquid gold post-shampooing makes this the perfect leave-in conditioner/ detangler. Hair drinks it up in seconds, leaving tresses super-soft and lustrous, with no added weight. As a styling product, it speeds up drying time, while imparting extra shine and manageability. And it’s superb as a treatment, nourishing your scalp, increasing elasticity, healing damaged hair and protecting it from UV damage. But remember, a little goes along way. It will take you ages to go through a bottle!
But my two favorite uses are as a hair refresher and a mask. For those days I don’t get get around to shampooing, it’s the perfect reset, calming frizz and wiping out dullness. All the poofiness and roughness is gone, leaving strands revived, hydrated and enveloped in a heavenly musky scent! And when hair feels extra abused, I slather it on, heat it up with my blow dryer, and leave it in overnight. Hair feels renewed, hydrated and silky for weeks.
And that’s not all. Haven’t tried this one yet but according to Moroccan’s site, a few drops massaged into hair before coloring, helps the dye penetrate and saturate your strands more deeply. The results? Hyper-vibrant color and shine!
