5 Reasons We Love: Moroccan Oil
Dry, brittle hair is an absolute beauty faux pas. However, finding a product that will moisturize your hair without weighing it down was almost impossible. That is, until I discovered Moroccan Oil.
This alcohol and sulfate-free line consists of shampoo, conditioner creams, spray and recovery masks, giving you a hodgepodge of do-it-yourself salon quality products at home.
After incorporating it into my haircare routine, my hair has never looked better and healthier. Here are five reasons why you must get your hands on the brand:
1. It Was Created With Your Hair In Mind
The signature ingredient in all of the products is argan oil, which is nutrient-rich and only grows in Southwest Morocco. Historically, Moroccan women used argan oil for hair and skin protection from the sun. It is a powerful antioxidant that provides UV protection to hair and is full of vitamins that hair craves which results in improved strength and elasticity.
2. You’ll Get Instant Results
It’s a pet peeve of mine to buy a product that promises results but leaves me with hair in the same state or even worse after a few uses. That’s not the case with these products. They’re formulated to instantly absorb into hair, which decreases drying time while strengthening and repairing it with a frizz-free finish.
3. It’s Perfect for Relaxed or Natural Hair
Whether you hair’s relaxed, natural dyed or fried, it needs moisture to be healthy! I remember the struggle I had restocking my beauty product collection after transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. It was expensive! As much as women of color like to change up our looks, having products that can be used on multiple hair types is a smart investment.
4. A Little Bit Goes a Long Way
I have had Moroccan oil since the Summer of 2009 and the bottle is still more than half-way full. Admittedly, my hair is just past my shoulders so I don’t use a lot of product but you really won’t need more than a half-dollar sized amount for extremely long, thick hair either.
5. The Products Have Multiple Uses
The best products to keep stocked in your beauty drawer are those that you can use for more than one benefit. This line is full of unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin E fatty acids and other ingredients that are ideal for creating soft, healthy skin too.
