Moroccanoil Treatment Original

Brand Moroccanoil is proud of the fact that it was them who started the trend of adding Argan Oil into hair cosmetics. Indeed, today this Moroccan oil is one of the most valuable natural substances. Obviously, it can also be found in Moroccanoil Treatment Original which is a universal formula of moisturising action delivered to all hair types. Let’s find out what is the winner of prestigious awards, Moroccanoil hair oil, like?


  • Accelerates hair drying time.
  • Strengthens hair and gifts it with shine.
  • Protects against the hot air generated by, for example, a blow-dryer.
  • Protects against damaging factors.
  • Controls frizz and static.
  • Facilitates hair styling.


Moroccanoil Treatment Original contains two active natural substances which are Argan Oil and Linseed Oil. This oil is a diversity of strengthening proteins, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. On the other hand, it contains silicones which act on hair surface and may overburden hair by clogging strand’s pores. Nevertheless, this is a formula free from parabens, SLS/SLES and phthalates. In the light of this, we have to pay rather a high price for Moroccanoil Treatment that, in fact, is made just from Argan Oil, a small amount of Linseed Oil and silicones.

For that price we could expect something much better.


The producer suggests using 1-2 pumps of the oil to shampooed and towelled hair by starting from the mid-lengths going downwards. Once the oil is applied to hair, you can start blow-drying, styling or just leave the hair to become air-dried. Moroccanoil Treatment Original can be also used as an additive to other hair care products such as shampoo, a hair mask or a conditioner. However, the best action is delivered when combined with other Moroccanoil products, the performance of which is emphasised then.

Moroccanoil Treatment isn’t suitable to be applied directly to the scalp because of the comedogenic silicones in the composition. As it’s easy to guess, we can’t use the product to undergo Oil Hair and Scalp Treatment. Also, we can’t apply it to dry hair since it can overburden and leave hair greasy. This makes that the hair oil isn’t as versatile as the producer claims it to be.


The cosmetic has a typically oily formula and its colour can be described as gold. When it comes to the smell, it isn’t particularly characteristic and doesn’t stay on hair after blow-drying. We can use the pump applicator, attached separately to the set, which definitely increases the efficiency of the product. Nevertheless, Moroccanoil Treatment isn’t amazingly efficient.

Moroccanoil Treatment Original can be bought either in a smaller or bigger capacity version. No matter the size, the oil is always available in a bottle made of dark glass of very characteristic blue design. Unfortunately, the package is yet another drawback of the product because once covered with the oil, it’s hard to keep the heavy bottle in the hands. For that reason, it’s highly possible for the bottle to slip and break.
