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

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      The right wingers will go crazy over this (I think they already have), but I think its appropriate and a nice touch.   Carolyn Marie

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8
