Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment, Mask and Spray Review

July 21, 2011

I have incorporated the famous Moroccan Oil Series into my haircare routine for a while so this post is going to be my 2 cents worth on these products. My review is based on my medium to thick, dry and chemically processed hair type. I abuse my hair everyday with hair dryer, straightener and sometimes hair curler. I am always on the look out for good hair care products that restores and protects my dry hair and improves the manageability.


So let’s start with the most raved about Moroccan Oil Treatment if you still haven’t tried it! It is

– Argan oil based with silicone, contains no alcohol.

– It conditions, softens and defrizzes your hair but without the thermal protection for all hair types.

– Apply one to two drops as shown in the picture on your damp hair depending on your hair length.


I was very impressed with this product at the start as I felt that there was a noticeable difference in terms of the overall condition of my hair. The oil is light and completely absorbs into the hair once it is dried.  My hair feels soft, silky smooth and a lot more manageable without feeling like it is coated with an artificial product. I normally apply this product before I blow dry and GHD my hair- it stays sleek straight for the whole day. Unfortunately like many other amazing products, once your hair is used to a certain product it loses its effectiveness. After about 2 months I had to switch to a different brand as I wasn’t getting the same results with the Morrocan Oil Treatment as before.

Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask

– A treatment that penetrates deep into the hair to help restore elasticity and rebuild strength while repairing damage caused by chemicals and other environmental stresses.

– The formula is very rich and contains vegetable proteins to repair damaged hair leaving it moisturized with a shine.


I always have the habit of exploring further into the range if I am in love with one product, as I am presuming if one product works well for me, then so do the rest of the products as they share the same ingredients. In the case of  Moroccan Oil Series, the other products I had tried so far from this range were a disappointment. The Moroccan Oil Hair Mask was quite an average product for me. It didn’t do anything to my hair. It was supposed to restore and repair damaged hair but I just didn’t see any improvement. It wasn’t worth the high price tag (AUD $49.95) and I much prefer alternatives like Frédéric Fekkai Protein Mask or Alterna Caviar Mask which is around the same price.

Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray for all hair types

– Infused with Argan Oil it provides an invisible veil of luminous shine and protection against environmental elements to the hair.


I like to add a bit of shine spray to the dry ends of my hair just to make them look more healthy and less dry. This mist is not fine enough as a result it can easily make your hair look oily. Again it is an overpriced product for what it does (AUD $35), I have used much better products within the same price range, such as Ojon Glossing Mist.

Bottom Line: I only like the Moroccan Oil Treatment.  It works brilliantly for my hair for a period of time and then it needs a break. That is why I am only buying the travel size (AUD $20) now. I will not be buying other products from this range as its performance is not consistent enough for me.

Totally agree about Moroccan oil, haven’t tried any of the other products from the range but a really good treatment is the Macadamia Oil one It’s one of the best hair treatments I’ve ever used.

Thanks for letting me know Megan! I almost bought it the other day but I wasn’t sure about the review. Now you have sealed the deal 🙂

Thanks for your honest review 🙂 I noticed how expensive it was when I saw it at Sephora and I’ve tried different brands of moroccan oil that is less expensive and works really effectively.

I’ve noticed that there are a lot drugstore brands coming out with Moroccan oil, however they haven’t hit the Australian shelves yet, Can’t wait!

Hair doesn’t “get used” to products – it’s dead. It’s more than likely a build up of the silicones. If you try a clarifying shampoo once a week, you can use the oil for ages. I do this & have been using the oil for almost 2 years. Nothing better imo – my hair loves the stuff!

Btw I’ve just got into reading blogs etc & love yours 🙂

Thanks Claire!
I do have clarifying shampoo but I only use it once a month..will definitely try to use it once a week to see the results 🙂
