Thoughts on the Moroccan Oil - Review

Since I DIY ombred (bleached the hell out of) my hair last year, the ends have been in a pretty shabby state - dry, damaged and generally not very nice to look at. I've also recently noticed that my hair just doesn't grow, and mainly because the ends are so split that I simply molt it all out 24/7! Because of both of these things, and the fact that I was busy revising and so miserable I was craving shopping, I decided to do a cheeky little online feelunique order and get myself some classic Moroccan Oil treatment.

The product description claims that it
'completely transforms and repairs as its formula transports lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage'

Now I'm not actually too sure of the meaning of all of that - but what I know is that this stuff is sent from the Gods. Never before has my hair felt so soft and shiny, I can hardly stop touching it! It's deeply conditioning but it's effects last, so I only apply it twice a week (hello tiny little budget that hardly stretches to afford this!). I'm also hoping that it will help to repair my ends so that my hair can finally grow longer and I can get out of this non-growing rut I've found myself in!

A little also goes a long way with this product - I've probably used it 6/7 times now and hardly any had gone (until I accidentally knocked it over on top of my handwritten history essay, aaaah the pain!) To put it into perspective, when I knocked it over I wasn't saying 'oh no, I'll have to re-write my history essay', I was shouting 'MY MOROCCAN OIL, NOOOO' - and that wasn't even because of my deep resentment towards history!

I do have a bit of a thing about oils, and absolutely hate touching them - after using this it does (obviously) make your hands feel very oily and I have to make sure I have a towel next to me to immediately get rid of it, but it's totally worth it, even for the oil phobes!

As I was a bit dubious before buying this product, I only purchased the 25ml bottle - but if I were to go back I'd definitely be buying the 100ml. For starters, it's much better value for money as this bottle was £12.85 (feelunique, here) and the 100ml was £30.45 - that's less than 3 times as much for something 4 times bigger. The 100ml also comes with a pump, so you don't have to pour more than necessary amounts onto your hand, and because of this it is far trickier to knock over accidentally!

When using the product, it's important to remember not to rub it onto your hair, as this will break the hair further - simply smooth it evenly over your hair without using too much and this will allow it to have the best effect. As well as this, simple things like not rubbing your hair when towel drying it and making sure you use conditioners etc will do wonders for the condition of it!

So to summarise all my blabbering about history and whatnot, this is great at improving the condition of your hair and repairing damaged ends, doesn't need a lot of product for effect and makes your hair feel absolutely luxurious!

As I mentioned earlier, if anyone fancies trying it I got mine from feelunique here, and I couldn't recommend it more!



  1. I feel the same way about touching oils! I've only tried similar products but I really want to try this out soon. It isn't too expensive on amazon if I recall. Love your blog, going to go read more of it!
