does moroccan oil work well?

i was thinking about buying the hydrating style cream and the glimmer shine spray, and possibly the original treatment. My curls are pretty dry and dry really undefined and kinda poofy. Do you think using the moroccan products would help with that and could I use them by themselves or with other products ?
Thanks !

I remember when the line first came out, right along the same time I went CG. My salon was excited to use them on my hair but I asked to look at the ingredients first. I was SHOCKED to see Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, and Cyclomethicone as the first 3 ingredients. I asked them to use other products on my hair.

- plopping, diffusing, and clipping the roots
The only MO product I use is the Restorative Mask. I love it. It's HG mask for me and doesn't contain silicones. I can't speak on the styling products though.

Spirilli, good to know about the mask. Does it smell strong? I'm super senstive to strong smells; I had to take back the Ojon mask because of the smell, and the Spiral Solutions mask actually gave me a severe migraine. I loved how soft the SS made my hair, but it made me soo sick I was throwing up.

I wanted to try this line, but I had the same reaction when I read the ingredients - holy cow, that's alot of cones!!
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

Currently using:
Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB
Yes, IMO the Restorative Mask has a strong scent when the jar is first opened and with that initial use. I don't mind the scent at all, just that it's strong initially. With subsequent use, I think the scent dissipates some, but it's definitely still noticeable. I like the scent, but there's a chance that you may have a reaction to the fragrance of the product, you may not want to risk it.

Lol I was just at a graduation party for a family friend and a lot of my mother's friends were there. They raved about my hair and were completely shocked when i told them I didn't use shampoo. They kept trying to talk me into using Moroccan oil because they all use it. I said I'd have to check if it's CG friendly first and they just kind of brushed it off and kept going on about how wonderful it was. I'm glad I spotted this thread though before my mom went rushing out to buy some for herself. I can't believe it's loaded with so many silicones!

I have the moroccanoil sulfate free/paraben shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks. The oil itself is great to add a little shine and prevents frizz for my twist outs. I also like to use it before I straighten my hair and I like to use it on straightened hair. You can use it up quickly if your constantly redoing hair styles or washing frequently.
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask

Totally, in my case I use Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector, it helps strenghten the hair that's prone to breakage, splitting or snapping off, gently smoothes the hair and prevent heat damage.
I love it, now my hair looks healthy, smooth, soft and shiny. This product it's really good I totally recommend it.
