My Summer Hair Essentails

Healthy Hair Essentails: Moroccan Oil

Summer is coming! Time to change your winter hair-routine to your summer routine. I’m always so excited during this time of year, because that means I can try new hair products and improve my hair-care. Being in Bali at the moment is the perfect occasion to start practicing my summer routine.

Argan oil has been a HUGE hair-care trend for the last couple of years. It’s an incredibly nourishing and hydrating oil derived from the Mediterranean Argan Tree. The deep roots and small leaves of the argan tree allow it to resist arid winds and water loss, resulting in a nut with a unique oil profile. Pure argan oil is a rare and precious oil that is harvested and extracted from the nut of the argan tree. For centuries, women across the Mediterranean have used argan oil in their beauty regimen for vibrant, healthy-looking skin and hair. Moroccanoil was inspired by the transformative power of the oil and now uses it as a main ingredient in all of their products. That’s why I have this thing for everything that has the name Moroccanoil on it.

1 SMOOTHING MASK

This product is a highly concentrated argan butter hair mask. It’s great to smooth and tame unruly and frizzy hair. The Smoothing Mask is infused with argan butter, argan oil and coconut-derived fatty acids to deeply hydrate and intensely nourish, leaving you with soft, smooth hair that is more manageable. It provides long-lasting conditioning while improving elasticity.

HOW I USE IT: I always apply a generous amount of Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask to towel-dried hair and comb through. Then, I let the hair mask absorb into my hair.  After 5–10 minutes, rinse it all out. I use this mask once a week or when needed. TIP: For deeper conditioning, mix in a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment when using this hair mask.

2 MOROCCANOIL TREATMENT ORIGINAL

This product has actually won an award, the Best Beauty Buys Award in the UK, 2017.

This treatment is the product that pioneered oil-infused hair care and created the worldwide buzz on argan oil. The treatment can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool. It’s infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil and shine-boosting vitamins. This hair treatment detangles, speeds up drying time and boosts shine—leaving you with nourished, manageable and smooth hair with each use.

HOW I USE IT: After showering, I apply 1–2 pumps of Moroccanoil Treatment to clean, towel-dried hair.  Apply it from mid-length to ends, because applying it to the roots of your hair may cause a greasy look. I usually let it dry naturally, but you can of course blow-dry it when you’re in a rush. Applied to dry hair, the treatment tames flyaways, conditions split ends and smoothes the hair.

3 DRY SHAMPOO DARK TONES

Moroccanoil provides dry shampoo for light tones and dark tones. This dry shampoo contains ultra-fine, oil-absorbing rice starch that removes buildup and odor, leaving my hair instantly clean and refreshed. Its
UV-protecting, argan oil-infused formula breaks down instantly, leaving no dull residue and maintaining the natural richness of dark tones.

HOW I USE IT: First of all: shake the container well. Then, I spray 15–20 cm (6–8 inches) away from my roots. When it’s dry, I massage the product into my hair — as you would with wet shampoo. I usually repeat this step with a couple of hair-sections so the dry shampoo can cover every spot.

Your hair color is personal, so your dry shampoo should be too!

4 CERAMIC PADDLE BRUSH

This brush is made with high-quality materials. Ceramic and ionic properties allow for even heat distribution, enhancing drying time and leaving hair shiny. The Moroccanoil Ceramic Paddle Brush is a high-quality ceramic styling tool for all hair lengths. It even includes a sectioning tip that’s stored inside the handle.

HOW I USE IT: Starting at the roots, I always gently work the brush throughout the length of hair using easy strokes. TIP: When you start at the root and comb too vigorously, you can actually cause tons of breakage. When you’re used to forcefully brush your hair, it’s better to start from the bottom and work your way up so that you don’t pull on it and cause damage.
