Before i get started on the review, i'd just like to wish you all a very happy new year! Hope 2014 is everything you are hoping for :). I had a quiet NYE, i'm not feeling 100% at the moment so i slumped on the sofa watching the Britney Spears documentary (ITV player fyi) and indulged in a box of Thorntons chocolates. My mum and i welcomed in the new year by watching the glorious fireworks on the tv - they were pretty amazing! Who knows what 2014 will bring?!
With that out of the way, lets get onto the review. I have been very curious about the Moroccon Oil Treatment for a while, i've seen rave review after rave review about the stuff so i was very pleased when i received it for Christmas.
My hair can be quite dry and frizzy, and i often struggle to keep it looking glossy and healthy so i was keen to see if this treatment lived up to the positive reviews it has had. Ever the impatient one, i couldn't wait to use this so on boxing day morning i washed my hair, gave it a quick blast with the hairdryer (its recommended that you use the treatment on damp/dry hair) and applied a couple of pumps through the length of my hair - from about my ear down. I was a bit unsure as to how many pumps to use, but i think if i used more than one pump it would of made my hair feel a bit greasy as it is quite a rich formula - a little really does go a long way!
Upon applying the product i noticed it felt more like a serum than an oil, it certainly doesn't feel oily to me. When i was drying my hair i instantly noticed how much easier it was to dry, usually i'm battling with knots, tangles and frizz but the Moroccan Oil seems to help eliminate these problems and makes drying your hair a hell of a lot easier. When my hair was 80-90% dry i could really see how much the treatment had worked on my hair, it had made it feel much smoother and gave it a real salon finish shine. I also noticed how much more 'finished' my hair looked, my split ends seemed not so noticeable and it just helped my hair look like i'd put a lot of effort into styling in, when in reality i'd just blasted it with a hairdryer and brushed it through!
So, i guess you can say i'm pretty much infatuated with this stuff! I also love the packaging, it comes nicely boxed and inside is a bottle of the treatment with a pump. I'm very pleased that it comes with a pump as it makes dispensing the product a lot easier and helps you not to apply too much either!
Even though the price tag (you can buy a 100ml bottle for around £31.00) is pretty high, i truly think that you get your moneys worth with this. You only need one pump of product so i'd imagine that the whole bottle will last quite a while! It feels like a real luxury to use this on your hair, and i can now understand why so many people adore it. Definitely one to pop on your Birthday/Christmas list, or just treat yourself...
Have you tried Morrocon Oil before? Let me know if you love it as much as i do!
