Maghrabian Hair Oil


I may be a little late jumping on this particular bandwagon, seeing as everyone has been talking about them for so long now but I have eventually been sucked in! Months ago now - I think September time, I received a sample sized bottle of Maghrabian Oil in my Glossybox. It kind of got put away and forgotten about because I had never really been that keen on trying any. I had heard a lot of good things about them but to be honest the thought of putting oil in my hair after I had washed it just didn't sound that great to me. I couldn't imagine that it would do anything other than make it oily, and greasy oily hair isn't a look I want to try and achieve.

Well...I couldn't have been more wrong! I am now completely in love with this stuff and I can definitely see it becoming a regular in my hair care routine. After I wash and dry my hair I take a tiny amount (one or two drops) and run it through the ends, I wouldn't advise going any further than about half way up the length of your hair. For me personally my roots are always what starts to look greasy first so I wouldn't want to do anything to help with that. You really only need a tiny amount, a little bit goes a long way so a bottle of this stuff should last a long time. I have been using the 10ml sample bottle for a couple of weeks now and I haven't even used up half.

This is more than just an oil, it is also a conditioner and a treatment for your hair, this is one of he reasons the texture is a little thicker. The formula is pure argan and claims to smooth and brighten hair, remove frizz and protect the ends. I have to say I agree with those claims, I have noticed such a huge difference in how my hair looks and in its overall condition - and I am in desperate need of a hair cut! I don't think for one minute that it is repairing my split ends because as far as I know hair is dead and the only thing that can sort that is to have them chopped off, but I can definitely say it has helped with the look of them. After using it my hair looks shiny, feels softer and just falls better. From trying out this oil I think it is worth the money, it is on the pricey side at £24 for 100ml but as I said, I think a bottle that size would last such a long time. However, as I am new to hair oils I think trying out a few others - possibly cheaper options, before buying the full size of this one would be a good idea.

Have you tried hair oils? Which would you recommend?

  1. I haven't heard of this particular hair oil but it sounds great! It seems similar to Moroccan oil, which I've been using for the past year, and I absolutely love how healthy it makes my hair feel. I was definitely sceptical about putting oil in my hair when I first tried it... but it worked!

    1. I was too, I'm not sure if I ever would have if I hadn't received that sample. Until now I hadn't heard anything about the brand either...I am struggling to find that many places selling it online! I think I would like to try the Moroccan Oil when my little sample runs out :)
