Moroccanoil's Lightened Up a Bit

By Alison Alhamed | 02/22/2010 3:00:00 AM


I am such a huge fan of Moroccanoil. My hair just drinks it right up.

From the signature oil, to the hydrating cream, to the shampoo and conditioner—I am in love. 100 percent.

Once I began using the oil and the hydrating cream, friends and family noticed immediately that my hair was softer, shinier and appeared healthier. On Facebook photos, friends I hadn’t spoken to since high school began commenting, “Alison, your hair looks SO good! Did you just color it? Why is it so shiny??” No joke!

Look how the light reflects off of it!

So, of course, I began recommending Moroccanoil to everyone I know. And, like good friends and family, they took my recommendation and almost EVERYONE fell in love with the product too.

Except Diana. She saw my comments on Facebook about how Moroccanoil transformed my hair—and so she went out and bought it too. Well, Diana has fine, thin hair that is very, very blonde. So, when she used the oil, it felt too weighed down for her and didn’t give her the silky results I got.

Well, NOW I can recommend a Moroccanoil product just for her hair type.

Moroccanoil has lightened up a little! Launching at America's Beauty Show in March, Moroccanoil introduces Moroccanoil Light, boasting the same shiny, smooth results as the original formula, but in a lighter consistency, perfect for fine and fair colored hair.

Still featuring powerful and beneficial Argan oil as its signature ingredient, Moroccanoil Light fortifies hair, improves elasticity, moisturizes strands and shields against harmful environmental stressors, while specifically targeting the more delicate needs of fine-textured hair. Moroccanoil Light delivers the same protection as the original formula, bringing healing and relief to weak brittle hair, leaving it glowing and healthy from root to tip.

I can’t WAIT for Diana to try it out! Diana, always the avid traveler, is leaving for Albania (she joined the Peace Corps: so badass!!) and needs a product to keep her hair looking fabulous without weighing down her backpack too much. This will be great!
