Moroccan Oil is a brand that's just so hyped up that it gets you all excited just looking at the gorgeous packaging! It's free of parabens and sulphates, which is always a good thing, and this means it's got to be good stuff, right? They do have a few different lines to cater to specific concerns, but I opted for their "Repair" shampoo. I don't actually have damaged hair, but I figure that prevention is better than cure.


[Moroccan Oil's Moisture Repair Shampoo]

I bought this in London for around 30 pounds, which is quite a lot for the bottle, but I guess you're paying more for the brand than anything else.



The product itself is very pretty and pearlescent when you squeeze it out of the bottle, and it smells absolutely amazing! 


For a sulphate-free product, it definitely foams up quite well and it cleanses the hair very nicely, making sure it doesn't feel stripped at all.


This definitely does live up to its name in that it moisturises, but I'm not sure about the repairing aspect. I can't actually judge, for obvious reasons. Would I buy this again? No. For what it does, the price is ridiculous and you're better off spending your money on L'Oreal's Mythic Oil shampoo which costs just RM48 and does a better job in my opinion. All without parabens and sulphates as well!

Moroccan Oil, sadly, has been a range which has disappointed me greatly. I'm not a fan of their hair oil either because it's very cosmetic in nature. By this, I mean that it allows the perception of healthy hair by coating the hair. It's basically hair makeup. It doesn't actually repair or enhance your hair. In any event, there will be a full review upcoming. 

Moroccan Oil = Fail

  1. It's so true that the goodness of a product needs to be weighed alongside its price tag and the availability of similar substitutes on the market. Thanks for forking out the 30 pounds and helping me navigate beyond the hype on this product. Like I said, unless I score a free jar of La Mer I will be sticking to the Nivea.

    1. I'm really trying to do more research before I make impulse purchases, and there are definitely good dupes for most expensive products out there. Since Nivea works better, you might want to sell that tub of La Mer and get yourself a lifetime supply of Nivea!
