Moroccainoil

I've tried these products for a couple of weeks now. All of my girlfriends, including my mother, praise them as incredible and I have to say I'm very happy with them. BUT, I do feel like they are not really necessary in my short hair. For me they actually give my hair too much nourishment and I find my hair went a little oily by using them. But that's probably because I have so short hair and already moisturised as it is. But If I would have dry and longer - I'm sure i would not be able to get by a day without. The beautiful layout of the bottles do make me want to have them visible in my bathroom nevertheless ...

Have you tried Moroccanoil? Do you like it?

  1. Har også hørt det samme, at de er så bra og gode for håret.
    Men, har ikke prøvd de ennå, dog jeg har veldig langt hår.....så kanskje på tide å prøve de ut ?

  2. I have, but I love the smell more than what it actually does to my hair. Even though I had (at the time I tried it) quite long hair, I felt that it became a little bit greasy after putting the oil. But indeed it nourishes the hair to some extent!!

  3. Oh love it, my hair is long and dry and fuzzy, this is an elixir par excellence for me.

    1. I think you are the perfect one for it! My mum has more or less the same, but not curly and she loves it!

  4. Can we find them in France? Never heard of them. I was using a cream of carité from Lazartigues and it does not exist any more. I am desperate because I used it for a day before shampoo putting my hair all "gomines" very flat on top leaving lenght. It was nice and treating. I hate to put cream after shampoo. After to soft. I look for an oil or a cream to put before shampo. If someone knows something.
    Please give me your tip! Thanks girls.

    1. I usually never post on blogs (but the comments here are always enjoyable so I might start to in the future) but I certainly feel for all girls in need of some good hair products. Uta, you really should try Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme as a pre-shampoo. Super treatment. /Celia

    2. Dear Uta,
      there is a deep conditioner which is used before shampooing. It' the "Elastzicer""created by Philipp Kingsley ( for Audrey Hepburn by the way) and it has won several prices. I recently ordered it online and I am happy with the result.

      Have a nice day. Hugs B.

    3. Hi Uta,
      i use the Alterna Oil spray after washing my hair (i have long blonde dry hair, with a fatty top…)and spray this oil only in the lengths. Also you want to have a tip for a product before shampooing, maybe someone is interessed;)
      I also prefer raw coconut oil as an overnight mask mixed with some olive oil. My hairdresser gave me this really inexpensive tip and it totally works. Just take 1-3 tablespoons of coconut oil, mixed it with a spoon of olive oil and work it in your dry hair. I´m not a fan of those "natural" methods but my hair really looks health since i´m doing it.
      Sorry Stina, there is so much going on in my live i really didn´t have the time for commenting, hope times are changing…
      Hugs to all,
      Lena

    4. B: elasticised does nothing for me , though I have been to his clinic a few times, he is very good.

    5. Oh My!!! So much good information!!! I also need a Dry Schampoo before washing my hair. I want the grease to go away, build volume and feel fresh and with volume!

      Need to check out these advices! Terrific! Thank you wonderful women!

  5. When it first came out, everyone was raving abt it, but I think the novelty has worn off now. I find that it gives you an instant shine and a temporary fix, but it's certainly no long term solution for dry hair! PS Very pretty vintage looking glass jars with the silver lids :-)

    1. Thank you! Got them in Morocco I think it was!

    2. I came to the same conclusion. It's great to tame curls and reduce frizz but I didn't find the oil nourishing at all.

  6. Jag rekommenderar det italienska märket Davines. Deras produkter är helt fantastiska och oljan är inte alls "oljig", nu har de även en olja med värmeskyddande medel i som är perfekt om man som jag fönar håret varje dag!

  7. Jag har tyvärr svårt för doften av Maroccanoil.. Är förmodligen en av de få som inte gillar doften. Mitt hår blir fort för "smutsigt" och oljigt, dock är det av samma anledning som för dig. Visst är du en sann Redken användare? Har precis börjat använda Maria Nilas Palette serie, parabenoch sulfatfri, god doft. Spännande att se om och hur håret påverkas. Hoppas allt går bra med förskolan för À! Och att ni trivs med barnflickan. Kram till dig/ Underbart inlägg om M:)

    1. Thank you dear. Yes as schampo and conditioner I always use Redken. Tried Sashujuan (is it spelt like that?) a month, but went back immediately. They are expensive but do a magical work on my hair!

      Everything goes very well!!!!

  8. I find that the best oil for me is Biosilk - Silk Therapy. A light oil to put in on wet or dry hair and the rest you just rub into your hands - it works wonders there too. It gives so nice shine and does not feel oily/heavy. And also you can use flatiron with it, which I have heard you can not do with all Marroccan oils (there is supposed to be one out now with heating protection in it, but I do not know). //Laila

  9. For me the products are OK, but don't really deserve this fabulous reputation. This is also something typical of Sweden that people just sort of mass-fall for something and this thing immediately gains huge popularity without anybody to stop and think twice. So I am glad you wrote this post. I think there are more lines of hair cosmetics which are much better than Maroccanoil. The first one I can think of is Alterna and their fantastic products. In Sweden available mostly on-line and from some hairdressers. I can also recommend PureOlogy and Redken, of course.

  10. I wouldn't go a day without them!! Well the oil, the other products seems to just ride on the success of the oil! :-)!

  11. I love them-I have short curly hair and a little oil goes along way for me.

  12. Hi Stina,
    I've always enjoyed reading your blog! Would you mind doing a series on interior design i.e. your new house deco? Thanks!

    1. God Evening,

      Small parts yes, I prefer having mostly private but glimpses here and there will come naturally!

  13. My hair is too short also. Makes it oily so I only use on the ends once a week. There is a lighter version I will try next time. Love the smell, though!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, I found them but to heavy for my hair. Better for very long and thick hair!

  15. I have used the oil as heat protection, putting it in damp hair and then blow dry, and it has worked just as the label said it should. Since I have only used a small amount each time (putting a small amount in my hair and then combed through it thoroughly) it has lasted very long as well. So thumbs up from me, although I have tried other, sometimes cheaper products, that give the same result. /A.

    1. Yes, I really loved it, but I think my hair is a little bit to short for it. But the styling product was really nice!

  16. My biggest problem with Maroccan oil is its list of ingredients - it's packed with nasty stuff such as plastic in the form of silicones. Pure argan oil is, however, truly lovely and great for your hair. If you're interested in oils, I'd suggest having a look at your closest organic food shop/health food store: usually you'll find oils such as organic coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil that all do wonders for your hair. Since you've got such fine, scandinavian hair they may work better for you as hot oil treatments rather than everyday touchups.

  17. Hej Stina! Tack för en bra och inspirerande blogg. Din blogg är en av få som jag dagligen läser och har gjort sedan säkert fem-sex år tillbaka. Nu till min fråga: kommer du börja jobba det här året, eller kan man boka privata besök hos dig (tänker på fillers). Tycker du borde öppna en privat klinik i ditt hem de tider som det passar dig! ;) Du är trots allt en av de bästa (i mitt tycke)!

    1. Ha, ha ha ... you read my mind. Yes, hopefully I will. Don't know If I will go private at once or start at a clinic. But working I will.
      Thank you kindly for the lovely compliment!

  18. I am also a fan of organic argan oil, it's 100% natural and very light. My hair is a very similar texture to yours Stina. The brand I use is Josie Maran, I love it :)

  20. Jag känner samma som du. Hur mycket jag än sköljer så lämnas en oljig känsla i håret, ser inte rent ut. Använder endast balsam eller oljan i hårtopparna, schampot har jag fått ge upp.. Jag har ganska långt och tjockt hår.
