Lockdown has divided us into two camps when it comes to haircare, those who are focusing on nourishing and embracing their natural hair, and those who have attempted a drastic home makeover. After revelling in the chaos of your home bleach job or DIY pastel look, you may have noticed that your hair has been feeling rather straw-like. Fear not for Moroccanoil’s nourishing and hydrating products will help to restore softness and shine to your tresses.

Is Moroccanoil actually good for your hair?

Moroccanoil offer a range of products designed to care for all hair types. The brand’s co-founder Carmen Tal discovered the hydrating properties of Argan Oil after receiving a conditioning treatment in Israel. Previously unsung in much of western haircare, this miracle ingredient helped to heal her colour damage, restoring softness and shine.

The brand’s signature Argan Oil is infused into each product, helping to protect, nourish and condition. The Hydrating Range is a great place to start for all hair, helping to maintain soft, shiny tresses. The Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner are infused with antioxidant-rich Argan Oil, along with reconstructive Keratin to fortify the hair structure. Fatty Acids restore the lipid barrier to seal broken, flyaway strands and boost elasticity, moisture and shine.

Many of Moroccanoil’s formulations are sulphate free, making them a great option for curly hair. The Curl Defining Cream features special heat-activated technology with a curl memory factor, to keep curls and waves looking natural and bouncy all day long. Infused with Argan Oil, the nourishing formula helps to detangle hair, making it easy to comb and style. Curls will be left looking frizz-free and full of life.

What’s the best Moroccanoil Product?

For newbies to the brand, we would recommend the product that started it all. Revered as miracle hair product by hairdressers and beauty-lovers alike, the Moroccanoil Treatment has consistently coveted a multitude of awards since its launch. The multi-purpose formula can be used on damp or dry hair to create salon-worthy results. Offering both conditioning and styling benefits, the formula is infused with Argan Oil, rich in antioxidants to fortify the hair against the damaging effects of environmental aggressors. Charged with vitamins, the treatment helps to transform the appearance of damaged hair, restoring a silky smooth glossy appearance. When used on damp hair the oil works to speed up drying time, cutting down your morning routine, while enabling easier detangling and improved manageability. When applied to dry hair as a styling product, the treatment finishes any hair style by restoring a mirror shine, taming the appearance of frizz and flyaways. The perfect foundation for your styling routine, the Moroccanoil Treatment is a must-have.

Does Moroccanoil make hair brassy?

Due to the rich amber hue of Argan oil, those with blonde or pastel hair colours may be concerned about products depositing unwanted warmth with continued use. To help keep your colour looking salon fresh, Moroccanoil have developed a dedicated Colour Care Range.

The Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo utilises deep violet pigments to neutralise and correct, leaving you with the icy blonde locks of your dreams. Ideal for blonde or grey hair, the shampoo helps to maintain your colour with each wash, gently cleansing excess oils and product build up with a tone-correcting formula. The violet shampoo preserves cool tones in between salon appointments while enhancing colour depth and dimension. ArganID™ technology helps repair hair from the inside out while sealing the cuticle to impart brilliant shine. Offering both toning and restorative benefits, this colour-safe formula is a must-have for blondes.

Another great product to help fight brassiness is the Moroccanoil Prevent and Protect Spray. This innovative spray delivers protection against everyday factors like pollution, UV and thermal damage, that can cause colour to become faded or brassy. A revolutionary 360° approach to colour care that starts in the salon and is maintained at home, the Colour Complete range is designed to extend the results of salon services by forming. The colour protection spray forms a protective shield to minimise colour washout and improve retention by deeply restoring the hair to its optimal health. Use regularly to experience extended vibrancy and less brassiness.

Moroccanoil’s colour care range is not just for blondes however. The Colour Depositing Mask arrives in a range of tones to add rich lustre to copper or brunette hues. The mask instantly freshens up your colour, restoring depth, dimension and tone. For those looking to get creative, the mask also arrives in fuschia, blue, burgundy and metallic rose gold and platinum tones to transform your tresses. Combining a hair mask and semi-permanent colour in one, the formula allows you to experiment with playful colour options without the damage, ideal for bleached hair. With a cocktail of Apricot Kernel Oil and Amino Acids, the mask uses ArganID™ technology to transform your mane, creating a healthier-looking surface that’s brimming with vitality. The colour depositing formula neutralises unwanted brassiness while s enhancing overall tone, helping you make the most out of your look between salon visits.
