Moroccan Argan Oil: Review

Hello guys!

A few months back I attended this wine and cheese event organized by the Geetanjili Salon in Sohna Road, Gurgaon and these guys gave each customer a goody back containing a few hair products. Out of which, one of my favourite products is the Moroccon Oil.

After I posted a review on the Lancôme Vituose Drama review on snapchat, I got a lot of questions as to how my hair has that amazing sheen and perfect curls and all that. And I did this review for those people. I also happened to reveal the secret behind how I actually do up my hair almost all the time. But this was all on snapchat. So, I shall do the needful here too.

So, before I start with the review on the Moroccon Oil, I would like to give you an insight on my hair texture and all that jazz. I have a curly hair type. My hair is a medium length and is super frizzy. The curls start right from the root and I hate messy hair because to be honest, I am quite the perfectionist. So, it actually annoys me to the core.

Now, let’s get down to the product review. The Moroccon Oil is actually a product launched internationally. If you’re looking for it in India, I will let you know where you can find it at the end of this article.

So, first I will talk about the texture. As the name suggests, it looks like oil. It almost has a similar kind of texture. But it is meant to be used as a serum. This product does end up making your hair limp so if that’s not something you don’t want then this is not the product for you.

This is an amazing product for people with curly hair because it has the ability to make them soft, shiny and frizz free. It also protects your hair from a great deal of damage. So it could also be used as a heat protector. If you have straight, frizz free hair, then this is not the product for you. Unless, you are alright with the fact that you hair won’t have any form of bounce and it’ll just make them limp. But then again, if you are okay with the limp hair then it is an amazing product.

This product is available at Geetanjili salon outlets across Delhi and also at http://www.amazon.in

Price- INR 2,230 (approx.)
