Obviously, the revelation of 2011 was completely unexpected: after countless eavesdropped accounts about how simply sensational the Moroccanoil product is, we finally tried it.
And now we’re in love, and our boyfriends are too- not just with our sweet-smelling locks, but they’re also using the stuff because it’s just so damn good.
If you’re still thinking that you haven’t read anything bad about Moroccanoil’s products because there’s some giant conspiracy to sell expensive bogus elixirs using modern marketing’s clever allure of deliciously tanned bottles suited up in bikinis of sea-turquoise labels, yeah- we know where you’re coming from. Well that’s just wrong wrong wrong!
Right, so now we’re also (non-commissioned) fanatical recruiters.
Okay so first things first: the Treatment stuff is amazing (pictured at top). In every way. And no, it doesn’t leave your hair oily- unlike other oils- your hair drinks the stuff like a tall glass of water, and then feels silky, lightly glossed and styled all day long. It’s so effective for hair that’s straightened using a flat iron- our best use of the stuff. It’s also really great for luscious waves and curls, hydrating nicely without the weight or any trace of being there except keeping things under control- like Spanx for your hair.
It also should be noted that the Moroccanoil scent is rather, um- how to put this?, ridiculously amazingly addictive, its sublimity makes it a must-have at all times, which also explains why some paramours have permanently ‘borrowed’ our bottle and are using it daily (and sometimes more) much to our furrowed brow and Moroccanoil withdrawal- which really isn’t pretty (and, despite attempting to play somewhat cool about all this, we both know he likes the stuff a little.. too much maybe? Hmm, darling- are you reading this? You said you’d buy me another bottle.).
We should also add that the collection of Moroccanoil products keeps other aspects of hair management rolling nicely: we’ve still got our lovely styling cream, which is perfect for protecting pre-blow drying, and the voluminous hair spray is a glossy quick fix.
So this is the year you’re going to get into Moroccanoil if you haven’t already. We called it.
