What is moroccan oil?

Recommended Posts

Guest Ashlyn M

I told my mom that I hope my hands feel better tomorrow so that I can straighten my hair (or try to). And she told me that she has this stuff called moroccan oil. She said it in a way seemed like she'll let me use it this weekend. But what is it? What does it do? Is it mainly for women? I'm still in "boy" mode so if it'll make my hair look non boyish would that be bad? My hair currently is just long and tangly. I really don't ever do anything with it to be honest. However, I will start using different products when I move in with my mom since she's gonna let me start hormones and I can do whatever around her.

According to Wiki, it is used traditionally with foods, and is increasingly used in cosmetics. With hair, it apparently is just a moisturizer, so I don't see any harm in using it. Just to be sure, read the label before applying.

It can be applied to your hair to give it shine and help tame tangles. You can mix a little in with your shampoo or conditioner while in the shower, or rub a little bit into towel-dried hair, or you can even use a little bit on your hair when it's dry or between washings. Focus mainly on the strands and the ends, not so much the roots. I've been using a Biolage version of it called Exquisite Oil and when that's used up I'm going to try out the Frizz Ease version of the stuff (since it was on sale).

Hope that helps! :)

I love the stuff! Its amazing. I put it on my hair when it is wet before I blow dry or straighten it. It makes it look soft, shiny, and keeps it from getting frizzy. Its basically just a hair conditioner but it makes my hair feel like I just had it done at the salon!

The brand we have used is a bit fatty or waxy to touch and is like a thick moisturiser cream . It left our hair feeling a bit greasy .I imagine it works best for those with dry or frizzy hair .

ive heard good things about it.. it seems to be in alot of hair products at the moment. avon have a range with it in, it looks very nice :)

not tried it myself.. im a bit rubbish at looking after myself sometimes and i dont always use conditioner.. but i get compliments on my hair often.

i can recommend using some kind of serum or leave in conditioner.. if you have thick or frizzy hair like mine it can make a huge difference.. also something like styling creme or brylcreem... a small amount rubbed on the palms and then through the hair i find adds a bit of definition..

im going to get mine cut soon in any case, it keeps getting stuck under my head at night :P i have to brush it regularly or it gets very tangled and even matted when im really not doing too well... but yeh i love all kinds of hair products :)

No go here! It made my hair too oily, even with tiny amounts. I hate throwing things out, but it is probably going in in the trash.

Love, Megan

Send it to me I'm out. I love it!

It comes from the argon trees in Morraco. I put a dab about the size of a quarter in my hand, rub my hands together and then into my hair.

It can get too oily if I use more than that. If I muff it up I wash my hair, there is still enough to help after the wash. Psst... Sally's Beauty Supply is your friend. Hug. JodyAnn

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!

      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved.

      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!

      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy

      I am not sure it is all post transition. I remember a friend joking at a party we were at that I was typically like a woman and taking so long in the loo. On reading a national newspaper here today I did notice an article about there being loads more bacteria in a mens facillity than a womens - surprise surprise lol. The main thing I miss about going in the wild (apart from beware of nettles etc) is that it is less easy to see approaching embarrasment, being low down in the undergrowth.   My visits to the hairdresser are very similar pricewise. She is not upmarket either is styles or price but I love the local meeting / gossip. I suppose the thing I don't miss is the (often) doctors surgery atmosphere of a barbers rather than chatty hairdressers.   Tracy
