Hair oils. It's pretty much all anyone has spoken about where hair is concerned here on the blogosphere over the past year really isn't it? But it's for good reason. Hair oils have become extremely popular because they do absolute wonders for your hair. Everyone raves about Macadamia and I am yet to personally try them, but one brand which intrigued me, mainly for the eye-catching packaging and design, is Moroccan Oil. Moroccan Oil make all sorts of lovely, good-for-your-hair products ranging from oil treatments to shampoos and conditioners, styling products and even gift sets (so put them on your Christmas list boys and girls!) I have been trying out their famous oil and also their extra volume shampoo and hydrating styling cream. 

The hydrating styling cream, for me, looks adorable. I really like the bottle. That's just something about it that draws me in, the same with the oil treatment. I think because the bottle itself is dark and then the vibrant light teal of the Moroccan Oil label stands out. Whereas with the shampoo, I don't think the bottle stands out so much. The styling cream has a very distinct scent to me; it's sort of a mix between aftershave, and expensive salon shampoos. If that makes any sense whatsoever! It's a cream with a medium consistency and applies evenly and easily throughout my hair with no problems. The idea behind this hydrating styling cream is to eliminate frizz, add definition and shine all whilst the argan oil conditions and hydrates. It definitely gets rid of my frizz, and I find this is good on my hair when I leave it to dry naturally and curly, or when I straighten it. And my hair is left silky soft and smooth! I really like this product and at £22.85 for a 300ml bottle, this isn't only going to last a long, long time, but it's also something I'd repurchase! 

The extra volume shampoo, which comes in a 250ml bottle for £17.65 and unfortunately, hasn't wowed me. But there are some things I like about it. It is a light-weight and volumising shampoo infused with tilicine and other ingredients which are all designed to penetrate the hair and plump up the cuticle from the inside out. It provides shine, manageability and movement without weighing the hair down and is best suited for fine or limp hair. Now, the reason this hasn't wowed me is because it boasts that it makes your hair manageable, but for me I find it harder to style my hair when I have used this shampoo. That said, it does leave my hair unbelievably soft and feeling and looking very healthy, which means I can deal with a bit of wavy hair every now and then for this shampoo. 

The treatment oil on the other hand, I adore. I have one other hair oil and that is the Organix hydrating macadamia oil, which I have reviewed and you can read here, but this is just that touch better. It is available in two sizes, 25ml for £12.85, which is the size I have and you can find here. And 100ml which is £30.45, and you can find here. It is a styling, finishing and conditioning product suitable for all hair types, even fine, limp hair! an ultra-light formula, this is absorbed by the hair, resulting in a natural, silky finish and brilliant shine without leaving any nasty residue. This leaves my hair so unbelievably soft. The first time I used it I was actually pretty surprised by just how soft, sleek and healthy my hair felt and it was a dream to both blow-dry and straighten. When I first got it I thought the bottle was quite small but you literally need the tiniest pea sized amount for your whole head, so it's going to last so, so long! I love it, and this is one hair oil I would definitely repurchase and recommend to others!
