Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask review

I found my Holy grail hair mask already- the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque, but I was very excited about trying the Morrocanoil Restorative Hair Mask and I had high hopes for it.
Read on to see if it met my expectations.

Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask* 250ml from £30.45

"Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask from the Moroocanoil series is a treatment that offers a therapeutic remedy that penetrates deep into the hair. For hundreds of years Argan oil has been used by women in Morocco to treat hair and nails in order to counteract the effects of the hot climate. The Argan tree, found only in the South West of Morocco called Argana; blossoms in the desert-like conditions and produces fruits much like olives yet larger and rounder. Inside the fruit grows a large nut that houses up to three almond-shape kernels which are the source of this miraculous oil."

* Helps reconstruct and rebuild
* Reverses damage done by chemicals
* Restores hair from environmental elements like sun and wind
* Penetrates deep into the hair
* Unique formula brings out hairs inner health
* Leaves hair shiny and moisturized

Just like I said, I was expecting this mask to be absolutely amazing after trying the Macadamia one which is nearly 50% cheaper. I like it, I am not in love with it and it isn't something I would repurchase.

It is a very thick mask and it smells lovely. I used a generous amount of it on my dry ends and a small amount on the rest of my hair, but as soon as I applied it I knew that it won't be as good as Macadamia.
I let it work for 10 minutes, rinsed my hair, let it dry naturally and expected great results. 
My hair felt quite soft and looked nice, but there wasn't  a big difference.
I used it about 5 times in the past two weeks and I can't see or feel a massive improvement in the condition of my hair.  I need to add that my hair is in quite good condition at the moment, because I very rarely  use heat and don't dye my hair anymore. The only thing I noticed was an improvement in the condition of my dry ends (bleached over 2 years ago). They look healthier and have more life.
I am guessing that the mask restores the hair from the inside and gives it strength and  I am benefiting from it somehow, but I don't think it is worth over £30.00. 

It is probably better suited for those with very damaged/bleached hair and hair exposed to heat very often. It is a nice product, but I will stick to my Holy Grail Macadamia Deep Reapair Masque (review here)

You can buy this mask from - one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair extensions hair care and beauty products.


  1. my poor hair need something like this desperately!

  2. Great review! I have only heard great things about this product so it is good to hear a different perspective. x

  3. You'd be shocked at how expensive this is in Korea! Almost double what you paid. Glad I didn't decided to invest in it!

    Great review :)

  6. Thanks for the honest review, I'll know now to steer clear of this and look out for the macadamia mask instead! x

  8. sounds that its not a very nice one~ and too expensive..

  9. Good honest review, the other one sounds far better and i know to avoid this if splurging on a hair mask!

  10. i really wouldnt need this and its too expensive! just hope i can find something for my terrible hair fall :(

  11. I actually really want to try your Holy Grail item, the Macadamia one :) I've heard so many good things about it :)


  12. I have heard really good things about this and I will now have to try it! You have such a great blog and I am now following you!

  13. I'm glad you reviewed this as I think I could've been tempted to buy it at some point, but now I think I'll try the Macadamia one when I need a new hair mask xx

  14. You should try the hydrating mask , it's absolutely wonderful ..
    i wanted to try this one as well but after seeing several bad reviews
    i didn't. Great review xx

  15. The reason why you didn't see results is because the product isn't targeted towards your hair. You don't use straighteners and if you don't bleach or chemically process your hair you definitely do not need this mask. The treatment is for those whose hair is damaged, so essentially the aforementioned groups. Damaged hair is weak and without protein treatments like this one the ends will simply break off.

    This is a good mask, but perhaps not worth the price
