The Benefits of Moroccanoil

By Lauren Salapatek | 05/25/2010 3:05:27 PM


I love the luxurious scent of Moroccanoil. Every product I tried in this line from the shampoo to the hydrating styling cream is infused with Argan Oil, vitamins A, E and F (Omega 6). Let me tell you, my hair has been flyaway, and frizz-free all day long. These products are miracle workers for people that suffer from dry or kinky hair.

 Moroccanoil products

If you have never tried Moroccanoil, these products are all about: HYDRATION. If you
try any of these products on your client they will feel and see a noticeable difference.
However, be wary. Since Moroccanoil is comprised of oil (of course,) with certain products
in this line you only want to use a small amount (depending on hair length). That can be a
good thing though—because then you can use the product for a long period of time.

Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner: Ah…using these two products was a lovely experience. When I was washing the shampoo into my hair, not only was it foamy, I could feel an oily blend in the consistency of the shampoo (probably because it contains avocado oil as well). It conditioned my hair before I even used the conditioner. This shampoo also contains antioxidant plant extracts like rosemary, lavender, chamomile and jojoba.

The conditioner is super creamy and it really coats each and every strand of hair. It gently detangled and strengthened my hair quickly and efficiently. This formula is highly concentrated; it contains 30 percent active ingredients compared to the industry standard of 10 percent. This conditioner will improve a client’s dry hair after one use.
 Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask

Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask:
When Moroccanoil named this product “Intense
Hydrating Mask,” it serves up to its name. The brand recommends only a teaspoon amount
of the mask for most hair types, a little more for longer hair. Then it tells you to keep it in
the hair for 5 to 10 minutes depending on what results you want. Since it’s summer, heat dries
out your hair, so naturally a deep conditioner for anyone is an essential hair item. Yesterday, I
was definitely having a bad hair day. No matter which conditioning product I tried, it didn’t
help my hair at all. After using this product this morning, wow….no more dry hair!

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream: So usually, I don’t put extra creamy products in my hair (like gel or paste) because it generally weighs my hair down…but this leave-in styler (only use a little!) hydrated my hair and left it really shiny. In Chicago today it was 93 degrees, and after being outside for a short period of time, the heat usually frizzes up my hair. However, all throughout this morning and into my lunch break my hair stayed frizz-free and manageable.

Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream:
This is a new leave-in styling cream that will help you create bouncy, shiny curls for your client. This product also provides a medium hold and environmental protection.

Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine: Many of your clients are going to be venturing outdoors, going to the beach and hanging out in the sun this summer!  Offer them some hair protection from the damaging effects of UV rays and radicals with this Glimmer Shine spray. Sometimes conditioners only provide so much shine; and that’s where this product comes in handy. This is an essential product for people with colored or highlighted hair. If your clients don’t want their hair fading into funny colors in the sun, this will protect them from that.

Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray: This new product by Moroccanoil produces strong, manageable and touchable hold with healthy-looking shine. The product also features the exclusive signature Moroccanoil fragrance.

  Moroccanoil Treatment: This is a styling and shine product in one. It protects against UV damage and other environmental hazards. The oil not only nourishes the hair but the scalp too, promoting healing and repair when needed. If your clients are asking for that celeb-shine, this is the product you should use on them; works like a charm. (Don't use too much—a little bit goes a long way.)

Moroccanoil Light: This lighter formula has the same effects as the original Morroccanoil treatment but it is customized for fine and fair colored hair. This product features a weightless solution that fortifies hair from root to tip.

I have color treated unruly gray hair that has decided to become curly for some unknown reason. No matter what cut or product I used it was still hard to manage. A little over six months ago my hair stylist, Donna, put your Moroccan Oil on my hair. I purchased a bottle and have been using it for the past six months. The difference in my hair is amazing, it goes where I style it, and best of all when I get up in the morning I can actually run my fingers through it, put on some makeup and run out to do some errands. My hair looks and feels great...thank you so much for such an amazing product. Also, what ever oil is left on my hands I smooth on my face and the back of my hands.
