Anybody else do this? Check out what shampoos are on offer in the supermarket when doing their food shop and just pick that one. Surely it can’t just be me??
I spend lots of money on skincare and makeup but when it comes to my hair I just have zero interest. I’m not one for the hairdresser unless my colour needs to be done (which currently is twice a year). In fact I don’t even blow dry my hair regularly if I’m honest. I’m busy, I have two small children, it’s Mam buns all the way.
Anyway, I was recently contacted by the wonderful Irish website Beautyfeatures.ie to see if I was interested in collaborating with them. When I saw the excellent brands they stocked I was delighted to have the opportunity. They asked me if I would like to write about skincare or hair care and I saw this as my opportunity to finally try and get a good hair care regime in place. I explained my main concerns with the condition of my hair and told them to pick whatever they thought was the most suitable product.
A little while later a package arrived in the post packed full of Moroccan Oil goodies. I was thrilled with their choice of brand. I had heard lots of wonderful feedback on their products. There was also a big reaction from followers when I showed the products on my Instagram Stories. All positive!!
What they sent to me was the Moroccan Oil Love is in the Hair Hydrating Set featured above. Included in it is the Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner (both 250ml) and a 60ml bottle of the Dry Texture Spray. I started using them immediately and firstly the smell!! My goodness it’s divine. In fact I’ve been asked on a number of occasions what perfume I’m wearing when in fact it’s my hair products they’re smelling.
These are the main differences I’ve noticed since using Moroccan Oil hair care;
- My hair is shinier, like a lot shinier.
- The conditioner makes it a lot easier for me to get the knots out in the shower, therefore reducing breakages.
- My need for using straighteners (even though I don’t much anyway) has reduced further because my hair is so much sleeker after I blow dry it, it only needs a quick run over for it to be poker straight.
- My hair is cleaner for longer. Using this shampoo and conditioner has definitely reduced the amount of hair washing I have to do as my hair is less oily.
- I think my hair just feels nicer overall. It feels softer and in my opinion, looks healthier.
At the very least, I feel like Moroccan Oil have converted me to investing more money into my hair care because there really is a noticeable improvement in only a few short weeks.
Along with this kit, Beauty Features also kindly sent me travel size Dry Shampoo (Dark Tones) and Treatment Moroccan Oil. Dry Shampoo is a must have in my opinion and I normally do go for a tinted one. This is going to be a definite repurchase for me. You need so little of this in comparison to other brands I’ve used and when you spray it on your hair doesn’t end up grey. There is also no sticky residue left over in your hair after you apply it. A big thumbs up from me!!
The star of the show for me though is the Treatment Oil. Add this to your everyday haircare regime and you will start to see changes for the better. It’s such a multi-tasker of a product. You can apply it to wet hair before styling. Just pop a few drops into the palms of your hands and run it through your damp hair.
You can also use it on dry, frizzy or flyaway ends to tame them. It protects the hair from sun and environmental damage and is suitable for use on coloured and chemically treated hair along with hair extensions. It will add shine and strength to your hair without leaving an oily residue. It’s a miracle for your hair!!
UPDATE- I have since repurchased the shampoo and conditioner twice since writing this blog post. I have also purchased the full size dry shampoo. They are all fantastic. I’ve well and truly been converted to the Moroccan Oil brand.
