I’m sorry if this is a dumb question but I bought this Argan Oil (below) mistaking it for Moroccan Oil a few months ago and once I realised what I did I just tossed it in my products box and haven’t touched it.
My question is- is this the same as the Moroccan Oil in the blue bottle that appears on google images? It won’t let me upload the photo sorry!
If you do use either, how do you apply it and style with it?
Do you apply before hairdrying/straightening?
I always thought because it is an ‘oil’ it would cook your hair… ?

I use moroccan oil and its great!
I put a small amount (usually a pump) and rub it through my hair after I wash it or if my hair feels dry I put it on before I go to sleep. It comes out really nice and soft.
I’ve never used the Argan oil but I did a quick google search and I think you should be able to use it.

Hey, I use morocan oil after my shower on damp hair (but only on the tips). I’ve worked on set with many hair stylists who swear by it, so I’ve given it a chance, and it does revilatize your hair!! If you have a tendency to get dry hair, or if your hair is very damaged in the ends like mine, its good to brings back some hydration.
This is the brand I use:
Sorry for the MASSIVE pic!

@Petite_Fraise: I use that, as well. It is pricey, but it’s great. I just put a tiny tad in my hair before blow drying. It is the first product I ever used that my Fiance said, OMG your hair looks soo nice! So I bought more LOL.

Love moroccan oil! I have tried various brands…some are good and some are “ehhh”. I guess it’s because of the purity of the moroccan oil. I’m trying the blue one next!

I haven’t used the actual oil yet, but I’ve been debating buying it. I use the Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner and it’s great!

I have Josie Maran’s Argan Oil and Trader joe’s brand jojoba oil (I realize that they are different). A friend told me that most argan oils are the same, but you want ones that are more pure. I’m on painkillers so I honestly don’t remember the details. I just know that if I use either of the oils I have on my hair, it helps and I can use it on my body without irritation. If I apply the JM Argan Oil, it soaks right in. When my skin is drier, I mix a few drops in w/ my moisturizer. I don’t know the ingredients for hte Morrocan Oil. My hair dresser said for me to not use it all over as it will weigh my hair down. Soemtimes I massage a bit into my tips (of my hair) and it helps. Right now I’m overdue (Slightly!!) for a hair cut (this Friday) so my ends are a lil scraggly. When my hair is still damp, I put some oil (JM Argan) in my palm, rub together, and put on my ends. It really makes them look great. Use LESS than you think you need. You can always add more. I added too much once and it looked awful

I just bought Morrocan oil last week. I used it awhile ago and loved it. So i tried all the cheap knockoffs i could find. NOTHING COMPARES!
Every salon i have ever gone to has sworn by it. I will never buy a knock off again.

I use it on the ends of my hair only. The smell is great and it makes my hair look lively!

I’ve been using Moroccan Oil every time I wash my hair (usually every day), and I love it! I, too, use it primarily on the ends of my hair.

I LOVE the argan oil but if you have fine/thin hair use very sparingly. I have thick hair so its not a problem for me! It smells great to! Just focus it one your tips and start with a tiny bit and you can always add more if you need it!

@AussieSummer: Since I don’t think anyone actually answered your original question, yes I am aabout 90% sure that Argan Oil is actually the oil that they are referring to in products called “Moroccan Oil” as Argan is the actual tree that grows in Morraco that they use to produce the oil. I’ve used that exact same product and it works great. Just don’t use very much!

I assume Moroccan oil IS argan oil as like PP says, argan oil comes from the tree that is unique to Morocco.Maybe Moroccan Oil is a brand name? Anyway, to answer your query, my hairdresser has applied argan oil to my hair. It made it lovely and soft but she told me it should be used sparingly – you only need a very small amount of product. Hope that helps some.

they are actually a little different. argan oil is a more pure form whereas the morrocan oil has a few added ingredients

I love Moraccan Oil! I have really curly hair that tangles a lot, so I rub it on the ends when its damp after a shower. Its worked wonders thus far!
