This is the review of Moroccanoil Treatment (hair oil or serum). I got my hair straightened last year and as the time passed, ingrown frizzy hair started growing very fast and so were my worries. I told my hair stylist about this and he suggested me the Moroccanoil Treatment to tame my frizzy hair. I had already heard about this product a lot, so I decided to give it a try. But that time it was sold out at their salon and he asked me to wait for another 15-20 days. Finally I got this oil 2 months back (I bought this product from Lakme salon) and now after using it for 2 months I decided to share my views about it .
Packaging : It comes in a turquoise color rectangular carton that contains a thick brown colored glass oil bottle & a pump. Pump makes it easy to pour out the oil from the bottle and also reduces wastage of the oil . You need to handle it carefully because of its glass packaging as if it fall down then it will break very easily. It has a really soothing fragrance that stays on your hair till the next hair-wash.
My Experience : As I’ve already told you that I’ve frizzy curly hair and annual hair-rebonding has become a necessity for me. Also my some hair has turned gray so I get them colored after every 2-3 months . As a result frequent rebonding, coloring and use of hair straighteners , I’ve damaged my hair . So I started using this oil from last two months . Every-time I use it, it makes my hair soft and more manageable. I’ve dry hair and I do need a oil serum to tame the frizz and fly always.
I just love its divine scent which is long lasting. The oil has a thick consistency but it gets absorbed by hair very quickly and does not feel heavy on hair. After every hair-wash I used this oil and it gave a healthy shine to my hair. As far as frizziness is concerned , it do control frizz but up to a certain extent. I’ve been using this oil thrice in a week but still only 1/4th of the total oil is used , and this way one bottle will last around 8-9 months , depending upon the usage .
I used this oil on damp as well as on dry hair and it works great in both ways. I used this oil before ironing my hair, it makes the straightener to glide through the hair smoothly. I’ve mid length hair and two pumps are more then enough for my hair.
All in all I like this hair oil but it is quite expensive and there are similar/better options available in the market at relatively lower price.
What I liked :
- Smooth frizz and split ends
- Divine fragrance
- Alcohol Free
- Applicable on dry & wet hair
- Suitable for all hair types
- Rich in antioxidant argan oil
- Long Lasting
What I disliked :
- Over priced
- Glass packaging
- Availability (Available only at reputed salons)

My curly hair doing its thing.
The biggest issue I have with my naturally curly hair is that I need 42,348,297 different products to tackle each individual problem.
Wait for it: I use a frizz-fighting serum, a hydrating leave-in, a curl definer and a hairspray. (And the last one’s just to preserve all that other crap I just hurled into my hair.) Sound familiar?
If you have hair like I do, then you’re probably nodding real hard in agreement right now. But rest your little keppie (that’s Yiddish for head), because I’ve finally found my holy grail product for curly hair:
My curls’ new BFF, the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream.
For the last two months, Moroccanoil’s Intense Curl Cream has been the sole product I’ve been using post-shower to tame and style my curls. Yes, you read that correctly. A single product.
This cream shortens my hair routine tenfold because it hydrates, fights frizz, defines and maintains my curls—all without making my hair crunchy (which is just the worst, amirite?!). Two of my best friends have shower-and-leave-the-house hair, and this product brings me one step closer to their no-maintenance hairstyles. It’s a dream for any curly-haired girl.
The Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream.
The cream is dispensed through a pump, and I only need to use one pump, maximum two, depending on how my curls are acting that day. (Note: my hair is on the finer side and just skims my shoulders when curly, so how much you use will depend on your hair length/thickness.)
Like all Moroccanoil products, it’s a litttllle pricey (around $30-35), but like I said, it replaces ALL my other hair stylers and has already lasted so much longer than any other hair product I’ve used in the past.
This is how much product comes out in one pump:
One pump of Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream.
The cream is slippery and creamy, but a little tacky after being in your hands for a minute or so. The “tack” is what I’m assuming keeps curls defined and in place.
How I Use the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream
After brushing out and parting my hair, I use the Intense Curl Cream as if it’s a leave-in conditioner/mousse hybrid.
Start with one or two pumps in the palm of your hand.
I rub one or two pumps together in the palms of my hands. Then, starting at my roots, I run the product down my hair shaft through the ends.
Applying the cream to my post-shower, zero-curl-definition hair.
Next, I wind my hair all together to inspire the curls to be super-spirally. I find this also helps to ensure that my curls aren’t so stringy and piece-y when they dry. No one wants spaghetti string curls!
Twirl your curls to get the perfect spiral shape.
From there, I repeatedly scrunch my hair upwards towards the roots until it has a bounce I am satisfied with. Since my hair is on the thinner side, I like to give it a little squeeze up towards my part to add some extra oomph. If my hair is still too damp or covered in too much product, I will take a cotton T-shirt and scrunch my hair once more to absorb the moisture.
My scrunch-‘n’-go method.
And then we wait…. I’ve learned that you truly need to ignore your hair as it is drying to get the best results. I even try and avoid mirrors because my hair is never up to my standards until it’s 100 percent dry. The more you play with it, the more frizz you will find.
Right after the product is in. Set it and forget it!
About 45 minutes later… it’s all dry!
My new, stress-free curly look.
My defined spiral curls.
While I know my curls aren’t perfect, they are definitely improved thanks to Moroccanoil’s Intense Curl Cream. I can’t even call my hair styling process a regimen anymore, because it is only one step! And I’m definitely not complaining.
The bottom line: I can’t recommend Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream enough!

Moroccanoil Curl Collection Review
I love low maintenance curls that give maximum impact. I also love low maintenance regimes that provide maximum results and volume! I was recently invited to give the Moroccanoil Curl Collection a try, and I was thrilled. I am no stranger to the original holy-grail, award winning Moroccanoil Treatment, and it has been a staple in my hair regimen for some time; so I was excited to test out the entire Curl line!
When it comes to my curls I love big, full volume hair. I specifically ask for my curls to be shaped into several layers to maximize their volume. In the past I have learned to shy away from the use of heavier oils for my hair as they tend to cause a lot of curl clumping (which, admittedly is not necessarily a bad thing!), and weigh down my curls. With Moroccanoil’s argan oil, my thirsty curls are able to receive moisture and vital nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants that are critical to the health of my hair – while remaining free and bouncy. And when it comes to healthy hair maintenance, more is more!
The Moroccanoil Curly Collection is infused with argan oil throughout the entire product offering, which aids in moisturizing brittle, thirsty curls, and gives you envy inducing, healthy shiny curls, without a whole lot of fuss! Continue reading below for my breakdown of the collection contains, and how I use each product.
Curl Enhancing Shampoo and Curl Enhancing Conditioner: the Curl Enhancing Shampoo with argan oil is a creamy shampoo that really got my scalp clean, and removed the buildup from my curls. I liked that it wasn’t a clear shampoo (a curly girl no-no), and it didn’t leave my hair feeling striped – my curls felt clean and moisturized. The Curl Enhancing Conditioner didn’t have as much ‘slip’ as I had anticipated, and my wide toothed comb didn’t glide through my curls. However, what truly impressed me was just how incredibly soft my hair felt upon rinsing; it felt soft and smooth, like buttah. A curly girl couldn’t ask for more!
Curl Cleansing Conditioner: a unique one-step conditioning cleanser that makes washing and conditioning your curls a breeze: it’s just one step! Infused with tea tree oil (a key ingredient to a healthy scalp), sunflower oil, argan oil, and vegetable proteins, this one-step cleansing conditioner surprised me with it’s ability to de-tangle curls. I really liked the unique foam-like consistency, scent, and how incredibly moisturizing it was. I used about 1 golf ball sized portion to evenly coat and saturate my damp hair, and de-tangled with a wide toothed comb, making sure to massage my scalp, and add water while gently working it through to my ends. I will be packing this for travel, as it reduces the products I need to pack!
Intense Curl Cream: this is a fantastic leave-in conditioner. A weightier curl product, this is great for high porosity hair, taming flyaways, and clumping the ends of your curls. For lower porosity hair (such as mine) this could easily be a one-step styler, resulting in large, fluffy, and defined coils that give me that desired 2nd day curl look. My curls were left soft and defined, with lots of shine. It layers wonderfully on the ends, keeping them moisturized and tamed, and also gives my curls a bit of stretch, which I greatly appreciate.
Curl Defining Cream: I have become a die-hard fan of this curl defining cream. It’s lightweight, works through my curls effortlessly, and the scent is divine. Infused with argon oil and heat-activated technology, this product gives my curls a beautiful shine. My curls are bouncy, healthy and stunning with this product. A little goes a long way, and I am able to get a nice even coat of product with 5 pumps.
Curl Control Mousse: a creamy, silky, and argon oil infused mousse, I this is my top favorite out of the entire line. I have always preferred mousse over hair gel, and this product is oh so milky smooth. Unlike traditional alcohol-ridden mousses, this Curl Control Mousse is moisturizing, and leaves my curls incredibly soft and touchable, while defining my coils and maintaining their shape all day long. I absolutely love it!
Curl Re-Energizing Spray: It seems that no matter how high the pineapple, my curls still need a little help in the AM to spring them back to life. The Moroccanoil Curl Re-Energizing spray springs my curls back to life, and reactivates their bounce. I have also found that by tilting my head forward and spritzing this at the roots gives my curls extra lift and volume; bonus!! The green tea, argan oil, and aloe all contribute to extra moisture and shine.

How I use them; My special Moroccanoil Curl regimen:
Step 1: In the shower I saturate my curls, making sure they are dripping wet. Using about a quarter size amount of the Curl Enhancing Shampoo, I focus on the crown of my scalp, and the center of my head (the ponytail spot). I work the shampoo all across my head, letting the suds work their way to my ends. Rinse. Using about 2-3 golf ball size amounts of conditioner, I work the product evenly from root to tip, detangling with a wide tooth comb, and finger spiral my curls to ‘train’ them to hold their shape. I then tuck my curls into a shower cap, and let the conditioner sit until I’m ready to get out, and rinse out the conditioner last.
Step 2: With dripping wet hair, I divide my hair into 2 sections, and gently coat my hair with 2 pumps of the Curl Defining Cream onto each section. I then split the 5th pump between my roots, and the troublesome back section of my hair.
Step 3: Curl Defining Cream applied, I then take a dime-sized amount of the Moroccanoil Treatment and coat my strains, paying attention to the ends, and the very top of my roots. Next, I apply 2-3 pumps of the Intense Curl Cream to my ends, and focus specifically on the troublesome back section of my hair.
Step 4: Lastly I apply the Curl Control Mousse, using about 6 pumps total, working it into my roots, and coating my curls from root to tip. I then scrunch the product repeatedly until my strands are evenly coated. I then ‘plop’ my curls in an old t-shirt for 20-60 minutes, depending on how much time I have and finish with a quick defusing session if needed. The result: beautiful, moisturized, and healthy shiny curls! I refresh my curls with Curl Re-Energizer as needed, and reapply the Treatment daily between washings.
Have you tried the Moroccanoil Curl Collection? Did you know that they had one? As a dedicated user of their Treatment Oil, I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with this collection. My curls are soft, defined, and give my hair the volume I crave, and with definition too! To review the entire collection, along with further tips, tricks, and to see their suggested Curl Regimen, .

The 10 Best Moroccan Oils
Why You Should Use Moroccan Oil On Your Skin
As for more intense spot treatment, Moroccan oil makes a great base for facial scrubs.
Your beauty-obsessed friend or favorite vlogger may be raving about Moroccan oil, leading you to wonder what all the hype is about. Considering how much money we spend on products to improve our complexion, it’s amazing more individuals don’t look into natural remedies first — they’re more affordable, and don’t carry the unfortunate side effects that products concocted of chemicals in laboratories can. Moroccan oil is one such item. If you suffer from scars — perhaps caused by old acne or the chicken pox — this aromatic product can help. Moroccan argan oil has been shown to help treat hyperpigmentation disorders, restoring balance to your complexion.
The stuff is also loaded with antioxidants, which can protect your pores against the harmful pollutants in the air. If you live in a metropolitan area that has a lot of traffic and buildings emitting toxic chemicals, you can’t afford not to put a layer of Moroccan oil on your skin before leaving your home in the mornings. On the beautifying front, it also boasts essential fatty acids. These are not only deeply hydrating, but they also improve the elasticity of your skin, giving it that glowing, bouncy look that everyone wants in their cheeks. If you have sensitive skin and other creams and lotions have caused breakouts or irritation, Moroccan oil can be the perfect gentle alternative moisturizer.
If inflammation has your skin looking puffy, red, and riddled with acne, this oil can help with that, too. It’s rich in vitamin E, which has anti-inflammatory properties. That means it can reduce the size and appearance of pimples, and help with issues like rosacea and eczema. As for more intense spot treatment, Moroccan oil makes a great base for facial scrubs. Just blend some with sugar or coffee grounds, rub it over your entire face, let it sit for about 10 to 20 minutes, and rinse off. It will remove dead skin cells without drying out the skin. It’s really a miracle product for all complexion problems.
Benefits Of Moroccan Oil For Your Hair
Moroccan oil can do wonders for your hair, too. Anyone who suffers from dandruff knows how embarrassing that condition can be. Unfortunately, many of the shampoos we use can dry out our hair and scalp, which causes the latter to flake and create dry specs. Combining Moroccan oil with a good dandruff shampoo can help fight this unsightly issue. The oil penetrates deep into the follicles, preventing the dryness that causes the problem. In this same way, it helps with itchy scalp (which is important, since scratching can cause even more dandruff).
Hair loss is something nobody wants to go through, but an alarmingly high number of people do.
If you live in a humid environment or, for some other reason, struggle with frizzy hair, Moroccan oil can tame the fluff. Your hair is made up primarily of lipids, the structure of which is affected when it comes into contact with too much moisture. Moroccan oil creates a protective barrier around strands, keeping lipids unaffected by the environment, and helping to maintain that sleek style you worked so hard on at home. It can also act as a nice shaping product that, unlike hairspray or mousse, won’t leave your tresses stiff and crunchy. Just a few drops of the stuff, spread across your head, will do the trick.
Hair loss is something nobody wants to go through, but an alarmingly high number of people do. When you start noticing strands on the walls of your tub after a shower, it could be time to look into treatment. You don’t need to jump right into the chemical stuff. Moroccan oil stimulates the scalp, helping it produce more hair. Furthermore, it can prevent hair loss. Swimmers, in particular, should soak their strands in this oil before getting in the water. Chlorine and salt water can cause hair to become brittle and break off, but Moroccan oil can prevent this from happening. Naturally, even non-swimmers can reap the same benefits.
Habits That Weaken Your Hair
If you’re looking into products that can strengthen your hair, like Moroccan oil and thickening sprays, you may as well double your efforts by also cutting back on habits that weaken your locks. There are probably things that you do every day — if not several times a day — that compromise the quality of your strands. Let’s start with diet. There are a lot of ways that your nutritional intake affects your hair. Make sure to eat a diet rich in vitamin E, protein, zinc, and copper. A poor diet full of fast food and lacking in proper nutrients can cause strands to weaken and fall out.
Make sure to eat a diet rich in vitamin E, protein, zinc, and copper.
As for styling, ease up on the hot appliances. While flat irons can create a nice tamed look and hot curlers can add playful volume, limit these tools for special occasions. Regularly using them can damage the hair cuticle, cause split ends, and lead to breakage. Even wearing ponytails that are too tight can hurt strands. Consider soft, extra stretchy bands that don’t put too much pressure on hair. If you just prefer updos, try using headscarves or alternative accessories to elastic ties.
There are a few harmful things you may be doing in the washing and maintaining department. Do not wash your hair every day. This not only strips it of its natural, protective oils, making it dry, brittle, and prone to breakage, but it also causes you to pull hair out. Just look around in your shower after you shampoo: you’ll find strands on the floor. Massaging your scalp and rinsing your hair with strong water pressure naturally pulls out some strands, so consider washing once every other day. Wait for your locks to dry before brushing them, too. Hair is most fragile when wet, so you should keep bristles away from it then.

Treatment – Light
This product is a miracle worker! I always resisted buying it because I didn’t want to drop the money on it and just assumed any argan oil would work the same, boy was I wrong. This is one of those luxury splurges you hear about and think you can live without, but actually can’t! Moroccan Oil is technically argan oil, which is oil from morocco – thus the name. This is not solely argan oil – there are other ingredients in it. I’m a firm believer in how people should just stick with what they really like, even if it is a little pricey, instead of trying a lot of lesser expensive things because you’ll probably save just as much money and time and stress by just getting the real deal. I see so many people wear designer labels and hold their pricey starbucks but walk around with unblended makeup and fried hair and I’m like uhh this is your face/body so it’s okay to spend a little money on it!! It lasts so long the money you drop on this will be worth it in the long-run I can definitely tell a difference when I use this and when I take a break from it, like if i forget to bring a travel size on vacation I like the packaging. it’s a sleek, dark glass bottle to help keep the product potent. only the largest size has a pump, but go for that size if you like it – it’s definitely a better value. I’d much rather use this oil instead of a basic styling creme or basic serum because I think this provides a lot of nourishment and makes my hair look silky and smooth. It’s like an all day treatment that makes my hair look great! Why put on a shine spray that probably has alcohol in it when you can put this on your hair to give it shine AND nourishment?!! I have medium length, thin, blonde dyed hair that can get dry and is prone to breakage. I use a dime size of this throw middle and ends of my hair. this doesnt make your hair oily like some oils do, but still dont use too much! It controls frizz well and makes my ends look so smooth and clean and healthy I prefer to put this in my hair when it is dry or almost dry. I’ve used it when my hair is wet and also have mixed it in with a mask but my favorite way is when my hair is dry. it also doesnt tint my blonde hair which I really like I tried the original version and did not like it as much as the light version. I have fine hair and usually dont mind it being weighed down, but the light version seemed to coat my hair better/more evenly, make it feel smoother, and penetrate deeper into my hair. Honestly the light version feels like this silkiness could actually be my hair!!!! the original felt like more product sitting on my hair. im sure someone with coarser hair would love the original – i’m glad they have two options Cons: price, provides no hold to hair, smell isn’t my favorite and is scented slightly strong imo but you’ll get used to it. This is not 100% argan oil, some may find that a con but I dont since the formula is so good. this oil doesnt make my hair any less volumized or less thick after styling, but if you want super high volume wait until the end to put this on. I think you’ll be fine with the light. This is ideally for your natural texture. Since it doesnt provide hold or texture you probably won’t like the result if you use this before an updo or braid or style other-than simply down, pontyail, or bun. I have tried the shampoo, conditioner, and leave in styling cream from this same line and while I do like them I dont think they’re nearly as essential as the oil. Of course the rest of the moroccan oil line is good, but to save money I use different products Here’s go-to routine that i’ve been doing for a while: Use a mask once or twice a week (living proof restore, redken extreme, amika, even loreal. alternating a between protein/keratin and non protein products), shower with some kind of salon quality shampoo and conditioner (usually matrix biolage, joico, even redken. alternating with a purple shampoo for my blonde hair. once every couple months a clarifying shampoo but this oil hasnt made buildup an issue), then put a leave-in conditioner on wet hair (it’s a ten or simply smooth keratin xtend. again, alternate the protein/keratin), let hair dry almost fully dry but I always have to hit it with a hair dryer so it lays the right way and so my bangs look good. I spritz some aveda thickening tonic in then blow dry, then after blowdrying smooth a small amount of this throughout my hair and it’s perfection. I’ve tried macadamia oil, which is nice and slightly less expensive and comparable, and I’ll probably continue to purchase their mask but their oil isn’t quite as good as the light version. This really is as good as they say. It’s a light but ultra nourishing oil that leaves your hair silky, smooth, and healthy. It really absorbs into your hair and and doesnt leave buildup or any kind of awkward film
Moroccanoil Treatment Light hair oil for thin, fine hair
Very fine, thin hair like mine is so easily tangled that I always need to use a moisturizing hair product which will make it more manageable. Before trying out the Morrocanoil Light Treatment, nothing worked.
I`ve tried anything from using more conditioner to make my hair softer to hair masks and highly acclaimed hair detanglers in order to tame my hair and prevent it from breaking each time I brushed it.
Nothing seemed to work quite as well as I hoped, plus they had the major downside of building up in my hair or making my hair look flat, without volume. Tough 1st world problems, I know, but something had to be done.
I consulted with all the hair stylists I know and they recommended a hair oil instead of my usual go-to products. The Maroccanoil hype caught up to me and then I knew I had to have it.
Moroccanoil Treatment with argan oil
Moroccanoil was presented to me by a hair stylist as a versatile hair product that can be used as a conditioner – when used as a hair mask, before washing, as a styling tool – to highlight certain strands and add definition to the hair ends, as well as a quick finishing tool, in order to camouflage split ends or eliminate frizz.
Particularly for fine hair, it worked as a detangler. And trust me when I say – IT WORKED! This was the first product of its kind that I ever tried and I`m grateful, that it finally offered a viable solution to my hair troubles.
The Moroccanoil is a residue-free, nourishing hair product, available in two formulas – the original Moroccanoil Treatment and the light version.
I was unsure about which one was the right fit for me, but thankfully I received samples of each and I was able to see the difference between the original and the light Moroccanoils.
The original Moroccanoil treatment is rich and nourishing, with a higher percentage of argan oil in the formula. However, it doesn`t interact with other products and it doesn`t leave a greasy film on top of the hair. It is suitable for dry, coarse, wavy or curly hair.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light Review – for fine, thin hair
The light Moroccanoil is designed for fine, thin hair or for those who have oily hair. I use it as a treatment and let it sink in a few hours before I wash my hair. It completely transforms and camouflages dry ends, ads vitality and shine to strands and protects the hair against sun damage. I use it as a leave in treatment, when I go to the beach.
The formula contains Argan oil, fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs quickly and transports lost proteins to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light
The silicone contained in the formula are very smoothing and not greasy at all, however this ingredient eventually builds up on hair and will eventually have to be stripped with a detoxifying shampoo to remove build-up. Another thing that I don`l love about the formula is the fact that it contains color additives (D&C Yellow 11 and Red 11).
The smell is a vanilla musk, strong at first but very pleasant throughout the day. It`s immediately recognizable, which is a very good marketing tool for Moroccanoil.
I use the original Moroccanoil Treatment before I wash my hair, a drop of the light version before I blow dry it and another drop after I finish styling it. A small amount is necessary to achieve incredible results, which is actually a great thing since the product is pretty expensive. I strongly advise against using it before you use a flat iron or a curling iron, as oil and heat aren`t a good combo.
I haven`t used any other products from the brand, but if they are as good as the Moroccainoil Treatment oil, I can see why they are so successful.
