As much as the saying goes you get what you pay for, I often wonder if this is actually the case. Since I've been ill earlier in the year I'm finding that my hair at the moment is suffering the consequences of being run down and my hair feels thinner than what it was at the beginning of the year. However as my hair is fine and I have a lot of it, this hasn't been a problem and I've been relying more on dry shampoos and texturizing sprays if I want more volume and movement in my hair. The only downside of this is product build up which can only be removed by a clarifying shampoo.
Over the last month I've been using Moroccan Oil's Clarifying Shampoo which is at the higher end of the market and I was wondering whether the price was purely due to the Moroccan Oil name, which you know is the best on the market. Prior to receiving this, I've been using Boots own make clarifying shampoo which costs just under £3 and I thought that it would be wise to compare Moroccan Oil's to this, I don't know if it's my hair texture however what I've noticed is when I use any clarifying shampoo my hair feels dry when rinsing my hair - I don't know if anyone else suffers from this, or is it just me. Moroccan Oil suggest that a conditioner is used afterwards, obviously to get moisture back into the hair. Now I've tried using this with and without using conditioner and using a normal heat protector prior to drying my hair and believe it or not once dried by hair is soft, shiny and so much more healthy looking. If I do the same with the Boots one, I find that my hair is unmanageable and looks dry if I don't use conditioner.
Also I've found with this, that a little bit goes a long way and you don't need to use much shampoo in order to lather it up, so you're not wasting product. Traditionally it is recommended that clarifying shampoos are used once a week, however with Moroccan Oil it's recommended that this is used once a fortnight. I have to admit I've used this weekly, purely due to the amount of product I've been using and my hair is looking in a much better condition. Personally I would say to splash the cash on the Moroccan Oil shampoo - it is definitely worth it. If you're looking to buy any products from the Moroccan Oil range, Hairtrade is the cheapest I've found their products on the net. Are you a fan of Moroccan Oil? What products would you recommend?
