Ages ago there was a lot of hype about MoroccanOil - it suddenly appeared on loads of blogs & everyone was raving about the new wonderful hair product. I was sorely tempted to try it out, until I realised that the RRP was close to £30 for a 100ml bottle - ouch! 

So it sat in my amazon basket for practically a year, and now and again I would swither about it & then decide it probably wasn't worth the cash. Until Christmas, when I got some vouchers & thought I'd finally buy it and see if it lived up to the hype... 

MoroccanOil - £26 for 100ml
My first impressions weren't particularly good - it comes in a nice bottle with a pump-top, which broke as soon as I tried to attach it. Not great! 

But, that's where all negative opinions end. The oil has a really rich smell (which I really love, although if you prefer flowery products on your hair this might be a bit strange), and surprisingly, doesn't leave an oily residue on your hands or hair.

I use a couple of drops, rub my hands together, and then apply it all over the ends of my hair and it's WONDERFUL. Seriously, amazingly, notice-from-the-first-use wonderful.

My hair feels much softer and shinier, and generally feels in much better nick. I've found since using it my hair dries faster, and stays straighter for much longer - so overall I'm using less heat on my hair. 

I thought I would like MoroccanOil, but I didn't realise just how much I'd love it! My hair is naturally a bit mental and frizzy (I've chatted about this - with terrible photos - here), so anything that helps keep it tame and healthy is in my good books.

I know it's expensive, but the bottle does seem to be lasting for ages as you use only a little each day, so I'll definitely be re-purchasing it. Proper love love love.


  1. Ooh interesting. I too have crazy, thick, frizzy hair which I tame with straighteners every day so this might be a good investment!

    1. Yeah, I am seriously impressed! I wasn't expecting to see much of a noticeable difference, but my hair just feels SO much healthier & sits much more nicely!

  2. I complete agree!

  3. I really want to try this. I have been resistant for ages as I have shiny hair which can become greasy fast but after trying an Umberto Giannini oil I have realised oils won't make this fact better or worse :) xo

  4. Might give this a try, i bleach and colour my hair so it's a bit dry.

  5. Hi there!
    Somehow I stumbled over your blog and have been reading it for the past half hour!
    I am based in Edinburgh as well, and I loved all your little tips for it and especially the Fringe guide!
    I am staying in Edinburgh this summer (first time) and I am so excited for it!

    So you definately have a new fan!


    1. Thank you so much! You are going to have a BRILLIANT time in Edinburgh, it's awesome! x

  6. I've been reading a lot about it recently, you review was short and to the point though, loved it!! :D

  7. I really suffer with frizzy hair as mine is naturally super-curly! I've been debating buying this for a little while but your hair looks so lovely in that picture that my mind is made up!

    Your blog is lovely!
