Keeping My Coils Hydrated with MOROCCANOIL®

MOROCCANOIL® review

Having been 100% natural (hair wise) since December of 2015, it’s a lot easier to pick and choose products based on my texture, since I know what my natural texture is. Whenever I see the word “curl” on a hair product, my heart skips a beat and I immediately am intrigued! That’s precisely what happened when I was approached by Moroccanoil® to review some products from their line!

A little background on the brand before I dive in 🙂

If you remember when everyone went crazy over the whole “argan oil” debacle, Moroccanoil was the brand that started the buzz. I’ll admit, I didn’t even know this myself before being introduced to the brand. Needless to say, all of the products in the Moroccanoil line contain argan oil…so good for all of our hair types! This in mind, the brand also wanted to create a line that was suitable for all hair types to reach a wider audience, since there was really no other brand out there at the time that did this already. Well their formulas for their products are so secretive, they’re proprietary!

moroccanoil hair review

If you noticed the Love is in the Hair bag up above, these were the 3 products inside! If there were 3 basic items I needed to quickly grab, these would be the ones I would choose! Great thinking, Moroccanoil!

3 items featured in bag:

  • Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream
    • For my hair texture, this works best when my hair is partially wet, so that’s when I use mine. It makes my hair super soft and shiny, both a plus since I have really kinky, 4c natural hair!
  • Moroccanoil Curl Enhancing Conditioner
  • Moroccanoil Curl Enhancing Shampoo
    • Though both the shampoo and conditioner are said to be “curl boosting,” they’re both great for all hair types! They are also color safe and therefore, sulfate and paraben free…perfect to keep my hair purple as long as possible 🙂

This just takes my laziness to an all time high! With this, I don’t have to shampoo and condition my hair; they’re both combined into one! Now, some other brands with these types of products are awfully drying on the hair. Though this one doesn’t dry my hair completely out and it has a conditioner within it, I still recommend following with a moisturizing product upon washing, to maximize moisture.

I’m used to treatments where you sit under a hooded dryer for ~30 minutes and wash it out afterwards. This particular one can be applied to wet or dry hair and helps to smooth and eliminate frizz and also add shine. I’ll admit, I’m a bit lazy having natural hair when it comes to caring about frizz, but it really makes a difference the first few days my hair is freshly styled!

By the time my hair approaches a week or longer, my coils get tighter and tighter, and therefore, I have to have something to loosen them up to keep them detangled. This helps with that, while also keeping them soft and shiny…check, CHECK!

You’re probably wondering the difference between this and the previous cream I shared. Well, this one is like a mocktail of a gel, mousse and serum built into one! Since I use gel based products on my hair most of the time anyway, this is my favorite between the two. It gives my hair that wet look I love, enhancing my curl pattern 😉

If you wish to literally wake up and go (so me!), this is your baby! It is supposed to add bounce and shape back to your hair, along with moisture. I have no idea why I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m putting it high on my priority list to do ASAP!

I haven’t tried this on my dry hair, but on my wet hair, fresh out of the shower, it works wonders! It takes quite a bit for my thick hair and it doesn’t leave behind that annoying stickiness on my hands afterwards and my coils always pop, with a lightweight hold!

Looking at their site, next on my radar to try is their suncare line! I’m in a city with high humidity and heat (why did I move from humidity to humidity again?).

Anyway, you can out all Moroccanoil products on the website here!

    Definately, Moroccanoil is one of my favourite brands. It makes miracles with thick and dry hair.
    I have shampoo and hair mask and I am 100% satisfied with them. They make hair so silky and healthy looking.

    This sounds like a dream range! I have issues with frizzy hair, & would totally love something that meant little maintenance. I’m also a get up & go type haha! Thanks for sharing, will check it out 🙂

    I remember like 5-6 years ago and everyone was raving about Moroccan oil and how the oil was like magic for your hair! I am so amazed that up to today they are still among the top brands and their bottles and designs still look the same. They really created and developed everything into perfection the first time!

    I’ve definitely heard of Moroccanoil but I’ve never actually used their products but I’ve wanted to.
    I just have a cupboard full of products so I want to finish those before I try something new.
    I don’t have curly hair but I do know they have a range for lots of different hair types.
    Great review babe I’ll check them out in the future.

    Moroccan Oil is one of my fave brands when it comes to hair products. I use their shampoos and conditioners everyday!!!! Their argon oil for hair is really good! I even use their body scrubs for exfoliation. I’m totally obsessed with this brand!

    I’ve always heard such great things about Moroccan Oil, but I never tried it. I really love their packaging though. It’s so bright and colorful. I have pretty straight hair, but I could definitely use a treatment oil. My hair gets so dry.

    I love this brand! My favourites are oil and mousse. With brands like this it’s hit or a miss and if you don’t try it you never really know 😀 I’m glad you are enjoying them, they are worth every penny!!

    Moroccanoil is actually my favorite brand when it comes to hair oil and hair treatment! I don’t have curly texture but I love their treatment on my straight thick hair too. I’m glad you found a routine and products that are lovely for your hair. Finding good hair products that work could be so difficult! Congrats on working with Moroccanoil.
