A sleek solution – one simple hair product which conditions, styles and protects.

27 Sep


Imagine taking a Troll doll and scrubbing its hair with Daz, then tumble drying it on full speed. The result? An electrified, back-combed afro of hair, which is a fairly accurate description of what my hair looks like when I let it dry naturally.

If, like me, you have a not quite straight, not quite curly mane of hair otherwise known as frizz then you’ll be excited by what I’m about tell you. There is a cure and it’s called Moroccanoil – a bottle of sweet smelling magic that will turn the untamed beast that lives on top of your head into a bundle of silky, shiny, easily managed gorgeousness. So gorgeous, in fact, that it would make Cheryl Cole swoon with envy.


Moroccanoil works with all hair types but is especially effective on naturally wavy tresses, hair which easily frizzes, or reacts badly to drizzly Irish rain. It can be used as a styling, finishing or conditioning product and if that wasn’t enough, it also protects against sun damage, humidity and other harsh environmental factors. The perfect rehydration treatment for colour damaged hair or for those of us with an addiction to ceramic straightening tongs.

How I use it

I apply a little to my split ends before I wash my hair and then I apply some more before I untangle my mop and blow-dry it straight – the result is sleek healthy looking hair. Or if I’m in a rush – which is most of the time – I apply a generous amount of this product to my towel dried hair and then on my way to work turn up the car heater to high, by the time I arrive I’ve a head of salon curls. Though be careful to keep it away from your roots or you’ll end up looking like Mrs Doyle from Father Ted. And in the words of Mrs Doyle, “Go on, go on, go on…” and treat yourself to this oil which was also included in this year’s Oscar goodie bags.

Price: 35 euros, available from www.cdwow.ie

    I’ve heard about this being good but doesn’t it mean you’ve to wash your hair more often?

    Have had mails and posts about where can The Moroccanoil can be bought – In Dublin you can get it from Zeba Hair Salon, 60 South Williams Street, Dublin 2 or from amazon or I got mine on Ebay but make sure you’re buying from a ‘shooting sta’r seller – i.e someone with a long history of selling authentic goods.

    What would be a good cheaper alternative?

    Hi Mairead, Good question. I spoke with some hair dressers and they recommended Argan oil which I’ve since tried a sample of and it is an excellent alternative, very effective, you can read more about it here and also order from this website or elsewhere such as Amazon or Ebay.
    Please let us know how you get on with it.

    Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.

    Is it alright to post part of this on my blog if I include a reference to this webpage?

    Russel Brand is a big fan of this oil – I read it in an interview with Katie – she said she sometimes borrows it.
