Product Review: MoroccanOil Restorative Hair Mask

I’ve been using MoroccanOil products long before I started my hair journey, one of my favourite products in the line is the restorative mask.

US $34 for 8.5 oz or US $47 for 16.9 oz
The reconstructive formula, rich in argan oil and vegetable protein, penetrates deeply to rebuild hair’s strength and restore elasticity.
Apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair and comb through. Let penetrate for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and finish with conditioner. Use 1 time weekly. Less frequently as hair improves. No heat required.
What I Think:
I love when my deep conditioners come in a tub or jar rather than a bottle, this makes it easier to get every last drop out of the container. This restorative hair mask is off white in colour and smells like a bag of mixed nuts (the ones with the shell still on), the scent does not linger after use. This product is extremely thick which I also love. When applied it absorbs after a minute or so. Each time I use this deep conditioner, I used it with heat for at least 30 minutes, it rinsed out clean leaving no residue. This conditioner leaves my hair feeling soft yet strong, which helps to keep my hair’s moisture protein balance in check.  I consider this a light protein treatment since I am able to use this weekly with no negative protein effects. I don’t ever feel the need to follow up with a moisturising conditioner. I will highly recommend this restorative hair mask.

  1. Been wanting to try this forever, have you tried the macadamia repair mask? Do you know how it compares?

    I'm not sure if it's worth splashing out or not.

    1. I did a review on the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque last year, check it out

    2. I prefer the Macadamia, will do a comparison post :)
