Hello! I know I’m a little slow to catch up with the whole hair-serum thing, but I recently got my hands on a tiny sample bottle of Moroccan Oil. Yes, that same product that has received rave reviews from many a celeb and magazine.
Now, I have an oily skin, and that includes my scalp. It has gotten even oilier since I stopped dyeing my roots, since the scalp is no longer being dried out by chemicals on a regular basis. Last night, after dying my tips dark to acheive a fab reverse-ombre, I decided to try out Moroccan Oil on my troubled locks. My tips have been dry for a while, and I recently cut out the last of an awful layer job I had done over 4 years ago, so I cut off a few years of damage too. I have been a bleach-junkie for too long and my frazzled ends can attest to this fact.
I squeezed a tiny blob of the oil into the palm of my hand (hair was towel dried and given a quick blast with the hairdryer), warmed slightly by chafing my hands together, and then ran it through the lengths of my hair, staying well clear of my roots and crown. It smells yummy! I commenced blowdrying my hair and styling as usual. I didn’t straighten as it was before bed, and, well, nobody likes a wasted effort.
Result. My hair looked lush and healthy, and I used a blob of product no larger in diameter than a 10c piece. The next day, my hair was mussed from sleeping, but still looked shiny and bouncy. I am very pleased and will definitely continue using this product! I’ve heard that it can cause a slight discoloration on ultra-light blonde hair, so be aware, fair ladies.
Bottles of this stuff cost about R400.00, but honestly, with the tiny blob I used to achieve such marked results, you really wouldn’t need to re-purchase for at least 6 months, depending on the length and thickness of your hair. Mine is collar-bone length and thick, and I think these 2 sample bottles I have will last me at least 2 months!
