In one of those rare occasions [this is for those women who are equally as guilty as myself of failing to take time out of their busy schedules to pamper themselves], I decided to pay a visit to the good ol’ salon to have my hair washed, quite deservingly – if I do say so myself. I’m always so skeptical about trying different shampoos, as I have it at the back of my mind that most shampoos leave an unwanted residue or promote dandruff and/or dry scalp. And, if you’re a woman with natural tresses, you know just how difficult it is to get rid of build-up/residue – *le sigh*.
I was pleasantly surprised by the hairdresser’s choice to use Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo for my hair and very eager to unveil the aftermath of its use. I found the most beneficial result for my hair was the fact that the shampoo’s fragrance could be smelt even days after it had been washed. This is a bonus, particularly for those of us who possess a keen sense of smell like myself, in addition to the fact that much of the competition as it regards shampoo choices pale in comparison, since so many others are either virtually odourless or carry a lingering and unpleasant scent.
Although the shampoo is not entirely organic it does contain Argan Oil, which has become all the rage as of late. Derived from the Argan tree [Argania spinosa] that is native to Morocco, Africa – it serves many purposes, including its usefulness for cooking, its medicinal functions, and of course its many benefits to skin and hair. Argan Oil is seen as a multi-purpose solution to hair and skin woes mainly due to its array of nutrients, from Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 & 9, which provides root strength and shaft support for the hair to Vitamin E, which contains antioxidants that aid in combatting free radicals that could damage the hair’s cellular membranes and also minimizes dryness, as well as reduces the potential for dandruff. This shampoo also contains Avocado Oil, which shares similarities with Argan Oil, in terms of it possessing amino acids and many nutrients; namely: A, B, D & E.
So, if you’re looking to tweak your shampoo and conditioner regimen just a bit, Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo is worth a shot. Your tresses will be promised the result of increased luster, sheen, restoration, moisture, UV protection and more.
