Have you heard of Moroccanoil? (Yes, it's all one word.) My hair stylist, who is also a close friend of mine, recommended it when I asked her what I could do to get the "oomph" back into my hair in between hair appointments since it was looking quite stringy and dull, lacking shine and strength. So I thought I'd give it a try. It's a "salon-only" product (but you can get it at Chatters Beauty Supply where I bought mine) so it was quite expensive at $47.00. The helpful and extremely knowledgeable sales person (is there such thing as a Hair Scientist because this girl was exactly that, I swear) picked out Moroccanoil Light Treatment for Blonde or Fine Hair for me. She explained that Moroccanoil is an Argan Oil blend that is rich in vitamins and natural elements that fortify the hair, improves its elasticity, moisturizes the strands and heals and relieves weak and brittle hair (in a nutshell). I put it to the test a couple of weeks ago after I got out of the shower. At first I thought it would be oily, and maybe even greasy but once I put it in my hair it was absorbed really quickly. I then blow dried my hair which, by the way, took less time than it usually does because Moroccanoil also reduces the drying time which means I can sleep in an extra five minutes ; ) and then straightened it. I was impressed at how shiny and healthy it looked and how soft it felt. The only downside to this product was that it smelled like a perfume a ninety year old Grandmother might wear, it was very strong and potent but the smell goes away once you dry your hair. I\ve been using it every time I get out of the shower now with the same great results. It's a bit pricey but it's worth it and you only have to use about the size of a quarter every time.
