Your're probably sick to death of hearing about Moroccanoil. I know I am. But there is a reason everyone goes on about it, and so I feel it deserves its place here amongst the Cult Classics at The Blossom Shed.
I don't love the smell (fake vanilla and I are in a duel to the death), and I don't love the ingredients for the price - mostly silicones with some Argan Oil for conditioning - but there's still no debating that a dab or two worked through wet hair works wonders. Instant shine and softness without too much weight or oiliness, it's a godsend for damaged, color-treated or particularly unruly locks. I like to work a bit through very damp hair from ears to ends, then put it up into a bun to sleep. I wake up to a mane of gorgeous soft, healthy looking hair that still has texture and movement to it. It's a quick fix, but a very effective one that's invaluable to dry, damaged tresses. I'm definitely keeping a bottle on hand for when I go blonder in the summer, and chlorine and sun wreak havoc on my unruly and bleached strands.
The Morroccanoil Original Treatment is available online at HQ Hair - it also comes in a light version for finer, more easily weighed-down hair.
What are your hair plans this spring? Do you change your look a lot, or stick with the same cut and color? I've had long, thick hair with shaggy bangs for years, and don't plan on changing it, even though I'm often tempted. It's become a security fringe that I'm a bit terrified of going without. I like peering out at people from beneath all the hair. It makes me feel superior.
