Moroccanoil® for Good Hair Days
So, it’s only when my husband told me, TWO days in a row (and that would include a no-wash-day2 hair day), that my hair was looking great, that I knew I was onto something. Well, actually, that my hair stylist (the fabulous Amy of the eponymous Amy G. Salon) was onto something.
She had applied Moroccanoil on my hair in previous visits and had extolled its merits, but it was really upon reading the write-ups in a couple magazines that I decided to splurge for a bottle of the stuff. Glad I did, because now I know that the lustrous hair finish is not just a result of expert blowout techniques but also had to do with applying a dollop of Moroccanoil before styling.
Moroccanoil is made from Argan oil, which is produced from the kernels of a rare tree that grows only in Southwest Morocco. There is a whole “legend” that the oil comes from goat poop, but here’s a Beauty Brains article that will help demystify that. Well, kinda. What is true is that the Argan oil come from a tree that is on the endangered species list and that the oil is hard to extract. However, the oil’s beautification properties make it all worthwhile. The oil is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and acts as a UV protector. It increases hair’s elasticity and gives it a natural shine. And for curly heads, Moroccanoil is said to control frizz.
The Moroccanoil formulation (which does contain some silicone) gives hair shine, and might I add, bounce too. It’s absorbed quickly in the hair to leave it feeling and looking silky and leaves no residue. I know that I sound like a commercial, but it’s all been true.
