Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Duo

Saturday, December 06, 2014
Moroccan Oil is one of those brands that everyone seems to rave about, including me! I love the Moroccan Oil Light Treatment (full review, here) and the amazing Moroccan Oil Frizz Control which has been in two of my monthly favourites posts from July and August.  I was so excited when these two beauties arrived!

The *Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner is a special edition 500ml duo from Hairtrade (£38.99). I love the look of the duo, it is quite substantial so I think it would make a great christmas gift. The products are colour-safe and sulphate, phosphate and paraben free so it would be quite a safe gift to give in my opinion. 

First up, the *Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo which has the same amazing, original Moroccan Oil scent as the treatment and frizz control spray. I absolutely adore the scent, it smells musky and fairly masculine. The shampoo is very very thick, so much so that it is difficult to pump out from the container! Also the shampoo almost sticks like glue to the hair as it is incredibly thick; it doesn't massage well at all, it just seems to stick in one spot. I haven't used a shampoo like this before, it is so sticky and thick. However it is relatively easy to wash out and it doesn't leave my hair greasy or heavy. Overall rating: ☆, 3/5. 

Next up, the *Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Conditioner which again smells incredible and is no where near as thick as the shampoo. The conditioner is just perfect, it moisturises, smoothes and tackles frizz better than any other conditioner I have tried; all without leaving my hair heavy or greasy. I cannot recommend this conditioner enough! Overall rating: ★, 5/5!

Overall, a mixed bag, one of which is a fairly awful shampoo although the conditioner is just incredible which I'm quite sure was sent by the hair gods. I would definitely buy the full size conditioner when this massive bottle runs out. 

Have you tried these products? What do you think of Moroccan Oil?
