Hair Oils

Ever since the emergence of hair oils from the likes of Moroccan Oil and Macadamia Oil there has been a massive fan base for it. A few pumps of oil rubbed in your hair and every girl can feel like Rapuzel! I've tried both the hair products, I personally preferred the Moroccan Oil, however I wouldn't use them ever again! If anything, I found out that long term use would actually lead to your hair being more damaged from it!

Before I explain why it leads to hair damage here are my initial reviews for both hair oils.

Morroccan Oil 
The first thing I noticed with this hair oil was the smell! It smelt amazing. I have thick long hair and surprisingly 2 pumps was enough for me. It left my hair so silky smooth  and the smell lasted all day! I was amazed by this product and would have definitely purchased it again. I even recommended it to a lot of my friends, that's how impressed I was with the product.

Macadamia Oil
I bought this as a cheaper alternative to Moroccan Oil. The smell is pleasant but I prefer Moroccan Oil's one and to be perfectly honest this done nothing to my hair. I need much more oil, about 4-5 pumps - taking in to account that each pump distributed more oil than Moroccan Oil, and I did not see any difference in my hair at all.  

Sadly, with both hair oils they contain lots of silicones which was what gave my hair the silky smooth texture. Over time, build up of silicones with break down your hair. Comparing the ingredients listed in both hair oils, Moroccan Oil contains the most silicone. After finding out that essentially I was paying a lot of money for silicone I seeked a more natural approach.

And this is where Fushi Organic Argan Oil comes in! I bought mine on Amazon for around £11. And I must say I will definitely be repurchasing this product again! It is what I wanted and found in Moroccan Oil but with actual hair benefits.

Fushi Organic Argan Oil
The first time I used it, was exactly how I would use my previous hair oils - washed damp hair and rub the oils in from mid length to ends. However as I dried my hair, it left it greasy. And greasy hair is not what we want! I then looked up on the amazing internet to find out the correct way of using it, which was to use the argan oil before you wash your hair. Let it soak and do it's magic for around 5-10 minutes, then wash you hair as normal. The results were astounding, it left my hair so soft! Aside the amazing things it would do to your hair, you can use argan oil on your face, body and even food! Although, I don't think I would be trying that out, it just means that the oil is so multi functional and makes it so worth your money!

Have you tried out any other natural hair oils? 


  1. Wow! what a great post!! I loved reading that! I looove Moroccan oil (especially the smell like you said) and I knew it has silicone in, but I wasn't sure what that meant for my hair, so thank you for teaching me something! I haven't tried the macadamia oil, and don't think I'll bother now, but my next internet stop is now amazon to get some Fushi oil! :)
