MoroccanOil Treatment Oil – our review

Monday, 16 January 2012

MorrocanOil Treatment OilSo there we all were on the balcony at 15 on Orange, swanning about drinking cocktails, looking at Liezle vd Westhuizen’s legs (very, very long and skinny) at the launch. It was gorgeously decked out in blue and white, the weather was behaving, the waiters were appropriately charming and solicitous. And as if that wasn’t enough, we were introduced to the fabulously funny and sexy (and tragically, uninterested in us girl types) Antonio Corral Calero, who introduced us to MoroccanOil which beauty editors across the country have been gagging to finally get their hands on.

I was dubious even before the launch: I only have three strands of hair on my head that require half a bottle of mousse and quarter of a bottle of super-freeze-type hairspray each morning to look like there are maybe 10 strands of hair. So oil, I am thinking, not so much. But those in the know insisted it would be fine: ‘Just don’t put it on your roots!’

Score one for the good (limp-haired) guys: I was given a bottle of MoroccanOil Light For Fine or Light-colored Hair (apparently, blondes have more porous hair – which is why it goes green with too much pool chlorine, so they get lumped in with us baby-fine chaps). According to the marketing peeps, it is a ‘unique, ultralight formula … that instantly absorbs into hair to … enhance manageability, shine … without leaving residue’.

As usual, I tried it out on the weekend, because despite everyone’s attempts to convince me otherwise, I was still deeply sceptical. The oil sinks into your hair instantly and it’s like it was never there except for the fact that your hair is smooth and your knots have all magically untangled themselves. And, just as Antonio said there would be, there was an added bounce to my hair! How odd! I now only require a quarter of a bottle of mousse and a fifth of hairspray to make my feeble locks look slightly bouncy and more full. Impressed.

And this is what Zoe had to say: There are so many hair products on the market today, each offering a different purpose and use – many of which, I think, don’t do what they say they will. But that is not the case with MoroccanOil.
Shine and control all in one. After drying my hair off, a dollop of Moroccanoil is all I need to smooth through my hair. It leaves it feeling as soft as butter, with zero frizz. And my hair doesn’t look oily at all, as it gets absorbed into my hair follicles straight away. I have seen a difference in my hair in just two weeks.

MoroccanOil Treatment oil, R380 for 100ml, is available at selected hair salons

    It’s every penny’s worth! Struggled to find stock at Salons though. I can’t imagine my life without my MoroccanOil. I thought it might leave my hair greasy – instead, I now have thick, bouncy, manageable hair.
