Moroccan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner and the Restorative Hair Mask

Monday, 19 August 2013

I was looking at my Moroccan Oil products the other day and just thought – ‘ this brand seriously gets pretty much everything hair-related spot-on’ – everything about them is so cool and clean. It also helps that their products are simply unbeatable when it comes to actual Argan oil hair treatments. I have tried a lot of the oils out there and constantly recommend this one to my readers (plus I just voted it ‘best hair care product’ in the ELLE beauty awards where I am a judge).

Below are some new one’s I tried and I can finally give you feedback on as I know loads of you have been asking about their shampoos and conditioners which I hadn’t tried up until now.

Moroccan Oil Restorative Mask
This just made me fall even more in love with this brand. It ticks every single box one would look at ticking when applying a hair mask. It smells delicious, applies easily and just leaves hair looking healthy and shiny. I actually don’t have a bad word to say about this! This isn’t a hydrating mask so don’t get it if that’s what you want (even though you will see a massive difference), this is a protein mask and helps reconstruct the protein bonds in damaged hair so that is the massive change you will see in your hair - which ultimately will result in better hydration as the hair follicles will be healthier and more able to retain moisture.

It truly is wonderful – now I just need to get my A into G and start finding more time for hair masks – I really don’t use them nearly enough, especially considering my collection.

Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
This is a tough one to review as I enjoyed both these products but can’t say they were 10/10 when it comes to the volume side of things and just didn’t wow me in general. That aside, I loved the scent (that true Moroccan Oil scent we all know and love, except a bit milder). I did find my hair felt a bit more hydrated, particularly my ends and my hair certainly didn’t feel weighed down which was a plus. I didn’t feel the shampoo was amazing with knots, although it is Sulfate free so good for coloured hair. I was sad that I didn’t LOVE these two as I really was hoping to (I am THE biggest fan of the rest of their range, as I've said about 20 times now). I wouldn’t go so far as to slate it, but wouldn’t buy it again - very bleh (for lack of a better word).

  1. So interesting to hear your comments on the Volume Shampoo... I love Moroccan Oil and the treatment oil is just my best. I have always used the repair Shampoo and Conditioner and been SUPER happy. But was told to try the Volume Shampoo on my last purchase and have felt exactly the same as you have. Its fine but like you said didn't do anything to my knots and i don't know just very average compared to the other shampoo. I wont be buying the volume shampoo again. Rather stick to the repair.

  2. I'm also a massive fan of the Morrocanoil range but didn't love the Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner. Have you tried Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner? I absolutely love it and it's better value as the bottle is bigger :)

  3. I have the Moroccan Oil Repair shampoo and conditioner. After the first week of using it I was walking around like someone out of a shampoo commercial - couldn't believe how soft and incredible my hair looked and felt! It also seemed to repair my split ends (I don't know if that is possible but even my hair dresser commented on how surprised he was at the condition of my hair and lack of split ends after a 6 month break in cuts...)
    Love love love these products!
