Review: Moroccan Oil

What's all the hype about Moroccan Oil?

Moroccan oil is basically a brand name form of argan oil. It is penetrating and your hair actually does benefit from it. It may be pricey, but it revives, strengthens, conditions, and reduces your blow dry time. It revives overprocessed, dry, brittle hair, and add shine and improves elasticity. Does not leave hair sticky or greasy (unless you use it wrong).

They also have a LIGHT formula which is for blondes and very fine hair.

To use Moroccan Oil, wash and condition your hair. Using a blow dryer, remove excess water from your hair until your hair is damp, but not dripping wet. Apply one pump of the oil into your hand and rub together. Apply it mid-shaft to ends and then blow dry completely. If you need more, add a dime size amount to your hands and run it through your ends only. Applying it to your scalp will make your hair greasy.

Review: Its a 10

Its a 10 Styling Serum
Last month, my salon was giving these out for free (full sized bottles, too!) for clients that received a haircut and color service, so I got to try it out for the first time and I have to say, it is pretty amazing!

This styling serum is medium weight, not too oily for fine hair (but keep it on the ends), but is good for all hair types. One pump and the frizz is gone. It adds shine, seals your cuticle, nourishes your hair, smooths, protects color, and is alcohol free.

Its a 10 Miracle Leave-in PLUS Keratin
This product is similar to the original Miracle Leave-in that millions of us love, but it has all the benefits of added keratin. Keratin is fancy for protein. Our excessive heat damage, dying, and chemical damage we do to our hair depletes our hair's protein and we need to put that back in. Whether by deep conditioner or this easy to use spray!

This spray also maintains keratin straightening treatments, increases manageability, protects natural keratin already in your hair, protects against heat (!!), restores hydration, detangles, defrizzes, and strengthens hair structure.

Its a 10 Miracle Hair Mask
This hair mask is once a week deep conditioner that you can do yourself at home! Wash your hair with your normal shampoo, towel dry or wring out your hair REALLY well before applying this hair mask. Leave it in for 5-10 minutes, or for very thirsty (dry) hair, leave it in while you clean your room (or house), cook, eat, etc and just rinse out with lukewarm water.

This hair mask detangles, nourishes, defrizzes, softens, restores moisture balance, restores elasticity (very important for healthy hair), improves your color vibrancy, and enhances natural body.
