Moroccan Oil - Argan Tree Oil
I've been seeing and hearing a lot of positive things about Moroccan Oil products. There seems to be a huge buzz surrounding them as the next miracle - gotta - have products.

Has anyone here tried them? There are various products in the line - the original oil, masks and creams. I hear they are particularly good for colored, dry, frizzy hair - which sadly is my hair type.

I currently use and love Kerastase Oleo Relax products but am always on the hunt for the next best thing!

Would love to hear any personal experiences with them!

The website is http://www.moroccanoil.com/

hi
am moroccan and have been using oil for my hair since i was a kid.
u don t need to have colored, damaged hair to use it.
it does make ur hair thicker and stronger.
have u tried Argan oil. it s THE miracle oil for hair and skin including the face.

Hmmm this sounds good especially since I had my hair bleached twice then dyed! Does it make your hair look oily, or does it sink in?

i was reading yesterday mexican Instyle and they had Salma Hayek in the cover, the they wrote about all the clothes and products she used for the shoot and there was moroccan oil, they said the stylist blew her hair with a blow dryier then used some of the oil to give it an extra shine and her hair looks really good, not oily at all.

quien.com
this is us instyle but they just recycled the cover for the mexican version (i hate it when they do that)

So I bought Moroccan Oil the other day at Harmon's and I LOVE it! It is brown oil, which is different from the clear oil I was using by Kerastase.

My hair is really shiny and silky, love it! Worth the $35!

how odd to see a thread on this product. I'd never heard of it before but when I was at a new hairdressers last week she gave me a small sample of the oil because I was talking about how dry my hair was getting. She told me I could wash my hair, wring it out as much as possible, and then put the oil on, put a shower cap/plastic bag on my hair, and leave it for 20 minutes, and then wash it out for extra conditioning. She used it on me at the salon in the same way for Salma at the InStyle shoot and honestly, it helped SO much. I've never had dry hair before, so I'm at a loss at what to do with it, and for a week my hair was back to its old self. It's definitely not greasy.

I bought two bottles of Argan oil.
One where the beans had been roasted - for salads etc
and another 'plain' to massage on my skin.. .. and to put on my hair I just discovered

I heard wonder things about Moroccan oil. Then I saw the price. I'm glad to see it lives up to the hype.
