Moroccan Oil Curl Control Mousse

Saturday, April 11, 2015
I am a big fan of the brand Moroccan Oil, I love the hair oil as well as their anti-frizz spray. I also have quite a few of their masks/treatments and conditioners on my wish list so when this Moroccan Oil product landed on my doorstep from Hairtrade I was so excited to try it and as I have such high regard for their products I thought this one would be another hit but sadly it was far from it.

I have the *Moroccan Oil Curl Control Mousse (£14.85, 150ml) which claims to tame and define curls, fight frizz, seals in moisture and provides hold - to me it sounds too good to be true. Firstly, I love the packaging, it is bright, colourful but practical and it contains an easy to use, mess free pump dispenser. The scent of the mousse is similar to the other Moroccan Oil products I've tried, it's gorgeous and musky!

The first time I used this mousse, I washed my hair as normal and I applied a generous amount to my towel dried hair as stated on the bottle. While applying it made my hair feel a little bit tacky and sticky as though I had just sprayed hairspray into my hair but I continued and distributed the mousse into the midlengths and ends of my hair while scrunching. I always wash my hair in the evening and sleep with it damp as I don't have to use heat on my hair. When dry my hair felt damp slightly still as well as tacky, sticky and dirty as though I hadn't even washed my hair last night! 

I still need to try using this product differently, using less mousse, for example, but so far I am very disappointed especially as I have such high hopes for this brand as I love Moroccan Oil products on the whole. 

Have you tried any products from Moroccan Oil? Have you tried this curl mousse?

  9. I bought their Moroccon Oil Treatment and was very disappointed, as it contains mostly silicones but not many really nourishing ingredients.
