Review: Moroccan oil Moisture Repair Shampoo

Hi Beauties!

I’ve been wanting to write up a review of my new Moroccan oil Moisture Repair Shampoo. However, I decided to use it a couple times before doing a full review of the product.


Product claims: 

According to moroccanoilproducts.com, “Moroccan oil Moisture Repair Shampoo gently cleanses while infusing hair with argan oil, keratin, fatty acids, proteins and other nutrients. For hundreds of years argan oil has been used by women in Morocco to treat hair and nails in order to counteract the effects of the hot climate. The argan tree, found only in the southwest region of Morocco called Argana, blossoms in the desert-like conditions and produces fruits much like olives yet larger and rounder. Inside the fruit grows a large nut that houses up to three almond-shape kernels which are the source of this miraculous oil.”


Ingredients: 

Water, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Cocamide MEA, Dimethicone, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetrio, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Silk Amino Acids, Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Glycol Distearate, Panthenol, Amodimethicone, Cetrimonium Chloride, Trideceth-12, Cyclopentasilozane, Dimethiconol, Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, C12-13 Pareth-23, C12-13 Pareth-3, Polyquaternium-10, SodiumPCA, Quaternium-80, Polyquaternium-7, Cinnamidopropyltrimonium Chloride, PEG-150 Pentaerythrytyl Tetastearate, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Phenozyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Red 33 (Cl1700), Yellow 5 (Cl19140), Fragrance (Parfum).


As many of you know, I’m a huge proponent of “If you can’t pronounce the ingredients stay away from it!” This product has some phenomenal features and benefits. I love the fact that it gently cleanses hair, while infusing it with moisture from the argan oil and fatty acids, however, all these ingredients are a little scary and intimidating. 


I like and appreciate simple all natural organic products with components that I clearly understand.


Pros:

  • My hair was left soft, extremely clean and very touchable
  • Detangling was a breeze
  • My hair was also more noticeably shinny

Cons:

  • Unfamiliar ingredients
  • High price ($20 for 8.5 oz bottle)
  • Creamy rich lather (the richer the lather the more suddy is appears) Suds in shampoo’s can actually be a bad thing. The best shampoo’s are sud less and contain no chemicals and harsh detergents found in most conventional shampoo’s

Ratings: (out of 10)


Softness: 7

Shine:8

Moisture:10

Affordability:5
