Oil of Morocco


Here is my first ever product review.. I think anyway. It took awhile but I have finally got around to it 😛

So I’m pretty sure you have come cross the craze at the moment around the Oil of Morocco, also known as Moroccan Gold or Argan Oil. It has long been a well kept secret known only to those who were after the absolute best in hair care.

The Moroccan Argan tree bears a fruit which is a delicacy for tree climbing goats who eat the fruit but leave the hard nut untouched. These nuts are gathered by locals who extract the Moroccan Oil / Argan Oil from the kernels via a cold pressing process.

This oil is one of the rarest in the world due the small supply and the limited growing area. Argan Oil has the unique quality of instant absorption into hair. It restores shine and softness and does wonders to coloured hair.

My hairdresser 4 months ago gave me this bottle to try and I just left it laying around for weeks a little unconvinced about the product.

This treatment oil is fantastic! I love the smell and how it’s not oily at all. A little goes a long way, and whether I’m using it on wet hair, before a blow dry, or maintaining those stray curls it does the job.  I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a little extra gloss and conditioning to their hair. The range is also available in Shampoo and conditioners which I also love.

Only down side I can say is that it can be slightly expensive ($33 for the oil and $20 each for the shampoo/ conditioner). You do only need very little amount when using the oil but some people did find it to expensive for the little quantity. 

I’m loving it and thought to share it with you all.

Ohh and it doesn’t stop there, I have a free bottle of the Oil to give away to a lovely reader who can share with us what their hair care routine is and Why they use what they use????

Mini Giveaway closes the 23rd of June.




There you have it one product review and I think I might do another one soon. Just have to wait and see.

Take care,

  1. Ohh I've been wanting to try this!!

    I may as well share with you my hair care routine…!
    I use garnier anti dandruff shampoo (self explanatory, my hair gets so dry and so does my scalp in winter!) and then I use l'oreal elvive conditioner (anti breakage) although I dont think it really works..! Then after I wash my hair I use a detangling spray which gives my hair a bit of moisture, and then I put some l'oreal elvive anti-frizz serum – gotta put this stuff in cos it speeds up the drying time plus it actually eliminates boof from my hair!

    And thennn I use tresemme heat protection spray before I straighten my hair. And during the week I'll maintain the glossiness with a drop of crystalli serum (omg, smells sooo good.)
    But I do wanna try Argan oil as I am running out of crystalli serum and heard that moroccan/argan oil is good for you hair! less chemicals and whatnot.


  2. Memememememememememmememe!!!!!!!!!! I have to say I was a use whatever was cheapest type of gal BUT of late I have been using the Aesop range of haircare. From their classic shampoo and hair conditioners to their Rose Hair & Scalp Moisturising Masque. I love them because they are as close to natural as I can get and they all smell devineeeeeeeeeeeeee.



  3. I'm Eritrean/Egyptian so I have curly hair. If I change my routine, my hair will not cooperate /: For shampoo, I use L'oreal Total Repair 5. It leaves my hair feeling soooo soft that I'm tempted to skip conditioner sometimes. For conditioner, I use Pantene Damage Repair. While my hair is still a bit wet, I put Dabur Vatika amla oil. I've been using this routine for over a year, and I've noticed such a dramatic change.

    I used to fluff up my hair to make my hijab more voluminous. I had been doing it for so long that my hair was completely damaged! I got one of those flower clips from Egypt, and I've been braiding my hair underneath, and with the use of my beloved hair care routine, my hair has grown back down to my lower back.

    I don't know what I'd do without it (:

Softens thick unmanageable hair and restores shine and softness to dull lifeless hair. Instantly absorbed into the hair, this trademarked product eliminates frizz, speeds up styling time by 40%, and provides long-term conditioning to all hair types. Moroccan Oil contains a unique formula that strengthens brittle hair while promoting healing to the hair. Also provides nourishment to hair damaged by coloring and styling. Thanks a lot…


  5. My haircare routine is pretty simple. I have been a longtime user of Garnier Fructisse because I love how it leaves my hair smelling 🙂 I use their shampoo and conditioner on a regular basis. I like to keep my routine as simple as possible because I prefer my hair to look and feel natural!


  6. Woow Krissy you use more products then I own..hahah
    I'm super lazy when it comes to hair care routine but that L'oreal Elvive anti-frizz I used previously and loved it.
    So happy with the Morrocan Oil for now.


  7. HF I was exactly the same regarding whatever goes when it comes to my hair. Did treatments every 6 wks or so with a hairdresser and it behaved for a few wks and back to its stubborn self. I wasn't aware of Aesop having hair range. I learnt something new thank you darling. Might pop into a store and check these out.
