Quick moroccan oil questions

(19 Posts)

I've just succumbed to the miracle that is moroccan oil. I can't stop walking past mirrors and swishing my hair like in that really annoying advert! I have a couple of questions though. Normally I use a heat protector spray (I blow dry and straighten hair daily). Should I use this as well as the oil? If so before or after? And finally (so I can prepare myself) is this a miracle product that lasts for a week and then stops working leaving me empty and distraught? Will my moroccan oil join the graveyard of unused hair products in my bathroom? Thanks.

(a) After, if you need it
(b) Nope, it's a desert island never-be-without-it

I'm very very happy. School mates thought the woman walking down the road coudn't be me, because of the young person hair.

Godammit, it WAS me.

Oh Dukes that is crazy good!!

Bought some more today as I'm down to my last 10% I reckon. £26.99 incl P&P from Amazon.

Thanks everyone, you have made me very happy! Going to stand in front of the mirror again ...

Oooh I keep hearing about this stuff, what does it do?

Sorry for being moronic; How do you use it?

LuckyMrsT Mon 04-Jul-11 19:32:05

My hair is fine, will it make it go greasy?

RichTeaAreCrap Mon 04-Jul-11 19:48:12

no it won't LuckyMrsT, just make sure you only use a tiny amount of it, it goes a long way.

Oh my I love this stuff!!!! grin
Bought a small bottle on ebay after reading all the threads here on Moroccan oil, tried it today for the first time and WOW - no straighteners needed on my hideously kinky hair shock. Its smooth and staying in style, even after a dash through the rain!
I bought the light version as I have fine blonde locks, I assume the full strength stiff is probably even better?

I've just bought the shampoo and conditioner to go with my oil. Am also having a "swish" monent. smile

Doesn't work that great for me. Can't understand all the positive reviews - wish it had done that to my hair! Same effect on me as siliconey serums... maybe my hair's too thick? Macadamia oil however seems to work a lot better - will persevere with it.

I have been using Morrocan oil for about 6 months now but have just ditched in favour of Tigi blow out balm from the catwalk range - it's FAB stuff! My hairdresser uses it after the oil but at home I just use it on it's own. It's about £9 from Amazon.

Valium I do not need any more rave-reviewed hair products thank you [stern look]

<eyes growing pile of discarded "micacle products" and increasingly cross DH>

valiumredhead Fri 08-Jul-11 18:21:33

No, really, you do - it's miracle stuff! wink

What kind of hair misfortune is it meant to remedy/circumnavigate?
