how i use these products
- shampoo - I use this when I shampoo my hair every other day. It is sulfate-free and so is very similar to other sulfate-free shampoos. It has a very pleasant smell!
- conditioner & renewing treatment - I will alternate between using the regular conditioner and the renewing treatment depending on how my hair feels. At first I wasn't certain if I should purchase both since they are very similar in that they are conditioning products, but the regular conditioner is much lighter than the treatment. If you were only going to purchase one, I would purchase the renewing treatment and apply it mostly to the ends of the hair and just lightly on the rest and that works great too. Again, yummy smell!
- penetrating oil - the product instructions says to apply to damp hair, and the product description highlights the fact that it protects from UV damage & is a heat protectant. This is a very light oil (lighter than the one from Sally's) and has a very light scent that is along the lines of how the other products smell, but is almost hardly there. I have not noticed any extra oiliness when I use this product, but since have only used it on the ends of my hair (ponytail section & down, and also on the front pieces framing my face which are more damaged). I do not notice any extra conditioning properties in this product so I do comb through another leave-in conditioner product before I apply the oil.
I suppose some day I might have the balls to shell out $65-$70 on the Moroccan shampoo, conditioner & oil so I could do a proper test and I'm sure like others I would LOVE them to pieces, but for now I'm attempting to bamboozle my mane into believing it is being nourished by the argan oil of Morocco (made in the USA) so sssshhhh! It's satisfied for now! ;)
