Following trying (and reviewing, here) Moroccanoil, I was eager to try more of their products. Moroccanoil is the only hair product I need to ensure my hair stays silky smooth and straight all day, and I couldn't wait to see the effect one of their masks would have on my hair.
Hairtrade.com is one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair extensions, and also stock a plethora of hair and beauty products
I blow-dry my hair three times a week and straighten it everyday (very bad, I know, I know!), so it's no surprise that it can easily become riddled with split ends and frizz. Moroccanoil's Restorative Hair mask contains argan oil and claims to help to reconstruct and rebuild hair, reverses damage done by chemicals and leaves hair shiny and moisturised. After shampooing, you apply a generous amount to the hair and let it penetrate for 7 to 10 minutes. Then, you wash it off and apply conditioner as usual.
I was quite surprised to see the consistency of the mask was similar to a thick foam. I was expecting a cream texture, but it smelt gorgeous none the less! When I washed off the mask for the first time, my hair didn't feel particularly soft and silky, the feeling I'm familiar with from various other hair masks. Instead, it was tangled and felt quite tough. This was to be expected, as the instructions say to condition after. So, I conditioned my hair and was still surprised at the fact that my hair didn't feel exceptionally smooth. After drying my hair, it definitely felt different. It wasn't silky soft, but instead it felt genuinely strengthened. It's a hard feeling to describe, but it felt slightly matted and heavy (but not in a bad way). I have noticed that since using the mask twice a week, my hair has barely any split ends and feels in a better overall condition. However, it is a bit of a chore to have to apply a hair mask, and then condition - I don't know about you but I like to have the two in one.
If your hair is very damaged and you're looking for a quick fix, I'd give this a go. A 250ml tub costs £29 from Hairtrade and will last you quite a while, as it's literally huge! I've used it 6 times now and there is over 3/4 remaining. However, if you're looking for a moisturising mask, their Intense Hydrating mask will be more suitable.
If you're wanting to try a couple of Moroccanoil products, I would highly recommend this set from Hairtrade, containing 5 trial sized versions of their products. It would also make a gorgeous christmas present, I'm planning on buying it for some of my relatives!
Have you ever tried any Moroccanoil products?
