The Moroccanoil Edit – which product is right for you?
For over a decade, Moroccanoil has risen in popularity in the hair and beauty world. The signature Moroccanoil Treatment is known as one of the best oils for all hair types, and we certainly agree. In this dedicated brand guide, we’re putting Moroccanoil in the spotlight and revealing our top 10 best Moroccanoil products.
Behind the Moroccanoil brand
One revolutionary product pioneered a new category in the hair industry, which ultimately led to a full line of hair and body products. That product was notably the Moroccanoil Treatment. Since then, the brand has paved the way for a plethora of nourishing and antioxidant-rich argan oil infused products. Shiny, lustrous locks may well be the raison d’être for each product, but we feel their collections go beyond that. Their innovative, easy-to-use and performance-driven formulas dramatically transform all hair types – and that’s important to know. Whether you have coarse, frizzy, curly hair or light blonde, damage-prone locks, there’s a range for you and everything in between. Dedicated to providing the highest quality products, today Moroccanoil has grown into an iconic beauty brand loved by all – stylists and guests.
The backstory: Moroccanoil was co-founded in 2000 by Carmen Tal after she had discovered the power of Argan oil on an overseas trip. It was then that she had witnessed first-hand the power of the Moroccanoil Treatment as it instantly revitalised her damaged hair.
We can’t stress this point enough – it’s perfect for all hair types. Moroccanoil have been creating the proper canvas for hair and serving millions of people around the world for over a decade. If its lasting conditioning and repair benefits are anything to go by – it’s no surprise why it’s a stylist favourite brand. Not to mention, the signature Moroccanoil scent is iconic in itself; memorable and exotic, conjuring images of a relaxing beach-side vacation and the feeling of indulging in a luxurious spa. What’s more, the collections are fuss-free, natural and effortless. All the qualities we know our salon guests look for in their hair regime.

The revolutionary hair oil that started it all – the Morocannoil Treatment. Available in a light edition too which is perfect for hair that has been damaged or overly sensitised. Minimise frizz and keep your hair looking smooth and shiny, because that’s everyone’s hair goals – right? Plus, with 125ml for the price of 100ml, hair stays looking glossy for longer!

Maintain healthy hair with the Perfect Defense Spray and you’ll be wondering why you didn’t discover this sooner. Protect locks against heat damage by up to 230°C, thus sealing your cuticles for a smoother finish. Another bonus is that it can be used on dry or damp hair, making it possible to spray on dry hair for second day touch ups!
Your hair color is personal, so your dry shampoo should be too. Moroccanoil’s first-ever dry shampoo for dark tones is perfect for brunettes looking to give their locks a little boost. It contains ultra-fine, oil-absorbing rich starch that removes buildup and odor, leaving hair instantly clean. A great product for keeping hair refreshed without the dull residue, thereby the perfect addition to your daily hairdrobe.
For natural curls and waves that look shiny, shapely and beautifully refreshed, this is the perfect leave-in conditioner. It thoroughly moisturizes and fights stubborn frizz without the annoying stickiness, which is a common downside for many other curl creams on the market. Another bonus is its formula of nourishing argan oil and vitamins which keeps waves and curls hydrated and touchably soft all day. In short, it’s a miracle worker for those looking to embrace and define the natural coils in their hair or maintain heat styled curls!
Winner of the Total Beauty Award 2018, the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong is a flexible hairspray for building long-lasting styles. Its lightweight formula leaves you with a pliable style yet a strong hold – generally a great all-rounder spray. The magic in its finishing formula blankets hair in a reflective shield of shine that fights fizz and humidity, yet brushes out easily and leaves no flakey or sticky residue. Infused with a combination of ingredients, including antioxidant-rich argan oil, this hairspray is particularly ideal for finishing styles. In addition, another stylist tip is that this spray can also be used as the foundation before braiding.
Shield your hair colour from daily damage namely with the Protect & Prevent Spray. In brief, it prevents hair colour from fading or becoming brassy by protecting it from exposure to environmental factors. As well as providing thermal protection, its ArganID technology infuses argan oil into the hair’s cortex, sealing and repairing each strand. Furthermore its weightless formula can also help detangle stubborn knots whilst increasing softness and shine – which for us unruly haired girls is a must!
The perfect hair mask to introduce to your weekly beauty routine, which, by the way is incredibly important if you want to maintain hair health long-term. By treating yourself to the quick, reviving five-minute Intense Hydrating Mask you will notice softer and stronger hair after just one use. High-performing, rich and creamy, as noted by our stylists, this deep conditioner is formulated for medium to thick, dry hair. The mask is infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil and nourishing ingredients, notably resulting in extra goodness for your hair. It hydrates and conditions while significantly improving hair’s texture, elasticity, shine and manageability.
Inject dehydrated, dry hair with much-needed moisture, in other words – help your hair quench its thirst. The Hydrating Shampoo conditions hair with argan oil, Vitamins A and E and moisturizing red algae, not only to nourish but to strengthen too. For hair that looks and feels healthier, we just can’t rate this shampoo enough. It’s gentle enough for daily use and provides optimal hydration for both normal and colour-treated hair. Increase your hair’s manageability together with added smoothness and shine. Oh and in case you’re wondering… it’s sulfate-free, phosphate-free and paraben-free.
We could all do with a little extra body and lift now and then couldn’t we? In fact, we’d happily have fuller, thick-bodied hair all year round! The Extra Volume Conditioner volumizes and gives fine hair body, shine and manageability without weighing it down, unlike some other conditioners. And, (you’ve guessed it) it contains antioxidant-rich argan oil as well as fortifying nutrients like linden bud extract. This volumizing conditioner transforms hair from lifeless to lively, not to mention its smoothing and shine-reflecting abilities. It’s also colour-safe, sulfate-free, phosphate-free and paraben-free.
Experience temporary color with the treatment benefits of a deep conditioning mask. Sounds too good to be true, right? Available in a range of curated shades, such as Champagne, Cocoa and Platinum, this easy-to-use mask makes it possible to experiment with fashion shades, and by the same token conditions locks. Go ahead and enhance colour vibrancy and dimension between salon visits, particularly if you’d like to experience an alternative hue. It’s temporary and light colour formula is delicate and gradually washes out, although it’s important to point out that colour results and longevity depend on hair porosity. Packed with nourishing ingredients including an amino acid blend, apricot kernel oil and reparative ArganID™ technology for hair that looks and feels healthier, it’s a popular choice for colour enthusiasts.
