IV. My Review on Moroccanoil Treatment Original
A) What I Like:
It was very very easy for me to like the smell of Moroccanoil Treatment Original. With its golden yellow oil, this hair treatment is a sweet and warm yet expensive and rich. Not too strong but not too faint. It is seductive yet natural. This smell last quite long, which fulfill my wish to have a natural hair smell without having to apply perfume on it. Even more, I like it when the hair treatment speed up the time my hair need to dry. Whenever I apply, it only takes halves of the time it usually take to dry.
At first, my hair only feel smooth only after I apply it, but return to normal after I wash my hair. After about 2-3 weeks using this hair treatment, I can see the result more clearly. This time it definitely has helped my dry ends look a lot more alive. It definitely feels a lot smoother and silkier when I run my hand through my hair even after I wash my hair.
B) What I Don’t Like:
I was a little disappoint about the bottle. It was made out of glass, which is very easy to break if I am not be careful with it. Therefore, it is quite inconvenient to carry around when traveling.
Moroccanoil Treatment Original is ideal for all hair types.
For those with medium to darker hair will benefit most from this. However, people with lighter hair from medium to golden blonde should use Moroccanoil Treatment Light instead of this product.
People who have dry or frizzy hair should apply again sometime after using it once to conditioned your hair even more. Oily hair type should apply one time and avoid apply too much. Due to dimethicone in this hair treatment, it collects dirt and pollutants in air resulting in your hair become oily and dirty faster.
