I’m sure by now you have all tried, or at least heard of the “miracle” hair care product known as Moroccan Oil. It is great for giving life to dry hair and making it smooth and silky…. but it is expensive.
There are a few products around that claim to be as good as Moroccan oil and they are made with Argan oil (which apparently is what the branded “Moroccan oil” is made from). Now, I’m new to these products in the way of using them, but I have been reading about them and considering them for some time now.
Recently I have noticed a big jump in the sale and marketing of argan oil based products. These argan oil products are all mentioning that they are from “Morocco” to create a link between them and they hype of the actual “Moroccan Oil”. Since I am a marketer by profession this interests me. Let’s have a look shall we….
That’s nothing new in the world of marketing. Everyone tries to ride on the coat tales of their competitors success.
So, back to the beauty side of things. I purchased the Lee Stafford Argan Oil “From Morocco” because I have dry and frizzy hair. A few months ago my hairdresser recommended that I use Moroccan Oil (probably because he was trying to make some more money out of me). Since then I have considered buying some and the Lee Stafford version was on sale at Priceline so I got it. $15 is a much nicer price than $60 I figured.
I’ve tried it a couple of times now and I need around 4 pumps for my hair. I’m not convinced this is the right product for my hair. I haven’t tried to straighten my hair yet, I have just left it curly and crazy. I think it would make a big difference if I straighten it as the product will have a chance to shine.
Have you tried the real Moroccan oil as well as any other argon oil based products? Can you tell the difference?
