Moroccanoil Light Oil Treatment

I am one of those people who is always moaning about their hair. To say that my hair is pretty much constantly dry is an understatement. My hair is naturally very curly with a lot of volume, so I use hair straighteners every day (sometimes twice) and I also dye my hair about once a month at a minimum, which as you can imagine has left my hair in a bit of a sorry state!

I have been using Argan Oil on my hair for quite some time now, but it's reached a point where I don't think that it's enough to quite sort out the damage. It was a little unsure about which oil to try next, so I went for the light version of Moroccanoil to see if I noticed any change in my hair since the larger bottles were so expensive.

I went for the 25ml bottle. It doesn't have an applicator so you have to pour it straight from the bottle. I'd much prefer it to have a pump or a pipette, but it's understandable since it's such a tiny bottle! The larger ones do have pumps, I believe.

At first I was a little concerned that it wouldn't enough and I would use it up really quickly, but that hasn't been the case! You need the smallest amount to cover your hair. I use less than a pea sized amount to cover my very thick hair. It doesn't seem like much in your hand, but on your hair it almost seems to spread? It also has a really nice sweet scent.

This product suggests that you apply it to dry or damp hair. I usually wash my hair and wait until it is very nearly dry and then apply it. It de-tangles my hair really well, and it was really helped with the overall condition of my hair. My hair is by no means perfect now, but it has been so much better (and softer!) since I started using this. I think I could definitely benefit from using the normal version instead of the light one - I'm going to finish up this bottle first though!

I would also say that this has helped with the overall craziness with my hair. Sometimes I'll wake up and my hair will be huge, but since I've been using this it has been much calmer and it has been much easier to maintain and straighten.

This oil is definitely expensive (for me at least) but you need the tiniest amount so I'm hoping I'll get my money's worth out of it!

This oil costs £12.85 and can be purchased from your local salon or online at Feel Unique.

Disclosure: I bought this product myself.


  1. omg when I told ppl about my hair they say like yeah somehow they never believe that my hair is very dry just like u I bleach a lot too at least once a month i tried all kind of oils treatmenets home remedies... moroccan oil is great am moroccan and I bring it from morocco cheaper we buy it there like 6 dollar for a letter heeh but I cant bring alot of oil with me in the plane sux

    thx for sharing hun xxx

    1. Exactly, people never seem to realise just how dry my hair is when I try to explain it! I really shouldn't use so much heat on it, but my hair is just so crazy that I have to. :( That's so cool that you get it so cheap! It has made my hair so much better!

  2. This product is pretty helpful! Makes my hair shine, but doesn't make it heavy.

  3. I really want to try Morrocanoil :) Sounds like it tames your hair and makes it more manageable.

    1. It really does. :) It's on the expensive side but it really has helped my hair!

  4. Eeek that is a pricey oil! It does sound very nourishing though! I'm always on the look out for products for my hair too. I sometimes go through phases of neglecting it and then over-compensating by smearing all potions known to man on it haha! I have used a few products with Argan oil in them and it does seem to make a little bit of difference to the softness of my hair. Another brand I have heard good things about the Macademia line of oils and treatments which I suppose is much the same as Moroccan Oil! If it wasn't so pricey then I may be tempted to buy it! ~♥~

    1. It is indeed! You should see how much the original 100ml treatment is! I think it will last a long time though because it's really thick. Haha, I think I'm always in that phase! Ooh I've not heard of Macademia, I'll have a look!

  5. Moroccanoil is my holy grail product. I use it almost every day especially when blowdrying my hair as it quickens up the process – does anyone else find this? I think hairtrade is the cheapest place you can get it at the moment. I also find it good to use on my hair extensions Kate x
