MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream – our review

Wednesday, 11 January 2012

MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling creamThey say: It’s a leave-in styling formula that eliminates frizz, adds definition and shine, while the pure argan oil conditions and hydrates the hair. says: It was the end of the year in Cape Town and the air had that distinct smell of suntan lotion and cocktails, and holiday makers were parking on yellow lines all over town. For me it was all about dust and wood chips and then some more dust. Yes, we are busy renovating while other people are frolicking in the waves.

At the end of a day’s work my hair resembled an untidy nest built with straw. My hair would be so dry that I could not even pull my fingers through it. And, even after a thorough wash, it would still be dull and listless. That is when I apply the magic – MoroccanOil Hydrating Cream.

At first I was worried that it would have an oily look and feel but there was none of that. Instant revitalising shine and a soft hold is what I got. Add to that a pleasant smell and it soon became a favourite part of my beauty rescue routine. I applied the product to damp hair but I am pretty sure that it would work fine on dry hair too (according to the instructions, you can apply it to damp or dry hair).

Unlike some other products I have used, it washes out as easily as it applies and leaves no residue or flakiness.

Stay-in oil for your hair, who would have thought? I am a fan!

MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling cream is available at select hair salons, RRP, R285 for 300ml

    My ends are dry and i don’t want to cut my hair. This seems like a good alternative to shears for that healthy look!

    I use a similar product (cant remember the name now, bought at our Hair salon) for half the price
