NEW Moroccanoil Smoothing Collection – Review
Were you unfortunately born with unmanageable hair? Have you fought a lifetime battle for sleekness, wasting countless styling hours in your struggle against snarls and frizz? Then this is your lucky day, because the new Moroccanoil Smooth Collection is here, and these new products can change your bad hair mojo like THAT (imagine me snapping my fingers).
The beautifully-packaged Smooth Collection is for a special kind of unruliness and frizz… the kind Moroccanoil co-founder Carmen Tal observed her family and friends struggling to tame. Thinking about all the time wasted on various styling chores, Tal set out to create an easy system to conquer the pursuit of smoothness for “impossible” hair.
If you’re like me, and your unmanageable locks are the result of heat or chemical damage, there’s a different Moroccanoil collection for you – the Moisture Repair collection – but the Smoothing Collection will work wonders for you, too.
I tested the Smoothing Shampoo ($28) and matching Smoothing Conditioner ($29), the foundation of smooth styling thanks to AminoRenew, a proprietary ingredient that infuses hair with amino acids. Used as a duo, these products create a smoothing appearance that lasts for up to 72 hours– now that’s a hairstyle that’s worth the effort!
Despite being “oil-infused,” the shampoo has great lather, and the conditioner is light and instantly effective. Even as I was rinsing my hair, I could feel tangles slipping away, and my post-shower comb out was smooth sailing for a change.
Next, I applied lightweight, humidity-repelling Moroccanoil Smoothing Lotion ($32) before blow-drying my hair. Thus styling product contains argan oil, argan butter, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids it its surprisingly lightweight formula. And I have to say, I was impressed with how quickly and smoothly my hair dried.
I was worried I might have used too little lotion (I’m always afraid of going overboard with an oil-based product), but a tiny pump was all it took. No struggling to get a frizz-free finish – it happened naturally, and my blowout looked sleek and shiny, with no flyaways.
And the fragrance… sigh… If you’ve ever used Moroccanoil products, you already know that the entire line smells amazing – which is good, because the scent lasts a long time, longer than any haircare or even perfume I’ve ever used. I could still get whiffs of the distinct fragrance well into the next day.
