Those of you that have been following this blog for more than a few weeks know of my hair struggles. I have fine hair that is lazy and likes to just lie around sticking to my head instead of standing up and bouncing around. Many stylists have told me I have a lot of hair, it just has a very fine texture. I still don’t believe them but whateves.
When I was at BlogHer, my fellow fine-haired friend Teri, from Beautiful Makeup Search, recommended Moroccanoil Hair Care products. I was skeptical: most hair products with argan or moroccan oil tend to weigh my fine hair down. Teri’s hair always looks great so I was delighted when the people from the brand contacted me just after my conversation with her. I chose to try their volume line of products, natch and these three products have me smitten!
Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo ($24) – this formula is infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil, revitalizing nutrients and a plant extract that naturally plumps up the cuticle. It is very thick and rich–the first time I used it, I used a quarter size drop and had lather for days! You only need a pea-sized amount, it lathers beautifully and smells fabulous! I can feel the smoothness of the oil in this shampoo.
Moroccanoil Root Boost ($29) – Root Boost is key to giving my fine hair more volume and bounce. After I towel dry, I spray on my roots and rub in at the scalp. The nourishing formula fortifies volume at the roots and lifts each strand to provide texture and shape. This formula also has argan oil in it to nourish the hair and scalp. I can see the volume immediately when blow drying my hair after using root boost and it’s doesn’t feel sticky in my hair. I’ve even used this on dry hair the next day to plump up my tresses and it works!
Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse ($28) – first let me say I haven’t had good luck with most mousse’s (mice, meese)? Most do the opposite of what they are intended to do and weigh my hair down terribly. Most make my hair sticky and crunchy (soooo 80’s)! This formula is truly weightless and gives my hair an added boost in volume plus gives me texture for that “piecey” look. Do not overdo it with this mousse–I use about a quarter size for my whole head. I rub my hands together and run pieces of my hair between my hands where I want more texture and volume. I also use this to calm those new gray hairs that like to stand at attention in my part. Love this stuff and it’s smells divine!
I recently got my hair cut shorter and in a different style. It has a lot more layers and is styled closer to my face. Using these three products from Moroccanoil has allowed me to finally get that “just been to the stylist” look at home!
Bottom Line: thank you Teri, for recommending the Moroccanoil Volume line. I highly recommend this line for those of us with fine hair to get the volume you crave without weighing down your hair. My hair has volume, texture, shine and smells amazing! I love that I don’t have to sacrifice soft shiny hair for volume and texture–I can have it all!
