I've had curly hair my whole life. It's a pain - beautiful but a pain. I've tried almost every product known to man. From the expensive salon types to the drugstore brands. Before I get into my actual MoroccanOil review let me explain some of the better products I've used.

Mixed Chicks
I liked the Mixed Chicks product. My hair was almost never frizzy, it always seemed tame but dry. The main problem I had with this product was that it created an awful build up.

I also really liked the DevaCurl products, this was my first move toward the sulfate free products that are better for curly hair. I liked the curls that formed with this product but found instead of making my hair soft it was spongy and a little sticky. For something so expensive that was slightly disappointing.

Joico products were okay. Nothing special. My hair was hard and frizzed easily.

The Curls Rock line was okay, again my hair felt stiff and sticky.

I've experienced a similar problem with Aussie. My hair is stiff and doesn't curl correctly. On the plus side, this product is relatively cheap and smells good.

I tried to find a review for MoroccanOil. I wanted to know how well it would work for curly hair before I spent a ton of money on it.

I found absolutely nothing. There was no helpful reviews for the specifically curly hair products of this line.

Based on the general reviews it seemed like a good product. A lot of people commented that it made their hair instantly soft (which I didn't think it would do for my hair). So I decided to look at the site and see which products they had for curly hair.

First of all it is helpful to know, as a Curly Girl, what your specific hair type is. I visited CurlMart and read several of the descriptions before finding out that I am somewhere between curl type 3A (Curly Twirly - awesome name) and curl type 3B (Curly Spirally).

Anyway, based on the description for my hair type I looked at MoroccanOil products that define curls and control frizz.

I decided to get the MoroccanOil Intense Curl Cream, the light original oil treatment (because my hair is surprisingly fine), and the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner.

I was incredibly nervous about spending $116 on something that I couldn't return if it didn't work well. But I bit the bullet and cringed as the cashier at Beauty Salon Plus swiped my card.

I tried the product immediately, Mother's Day Brunch! The shampoo and the conditioner was great, it was light and my hair felt bouncier as soon as I got out of the shower.

I brushed my hair, (I used a Cricket rake comb) and, following the video and directions for both the cream and oil.

I'd read reviews that it helped hair air dry faster, and again I didn't believe it.

Ten minutes after I got out of the shower my hair was mostly dry, and completely soft. It was amazing how wonderful the curls looked and how my hair felt. No crunch, no stickiness - it didn't even look oily! This is the best thing I've done for my hair in a long time.

I've been using it for about a week now, and every time I use it I find myself loving it even more. The only complaint I have is that sometimes, not even every time the sides of my hair were a little oily looking the following morning. I think this might change the more used to the oil I get, I don't need as much as I used sometimes - once I get used to the product and how much I need to use I won't have a single complaint.

To be straightforward: MoroccanOil for curly hair? A must!

      great review! Very thorough. You answered the questions I had, which I wasn't able to find anywhere else. I have the same concerns, complaints and the lack of reviews for curly hair specifically was my reason for not switching over to this line. I think I'll give it a go now. Thanks for sharing your experience! ;)

      I don't see why it wouldn't! The other thing you could possibly do is ask around and see if anywhere would give you free samples. I've done this before with different products but there were none available in my area MoroccanOil.

      It also may not be as pricey for you because some of the other products in the line came in smaller bottles. (Of course neither of the ones I needed were in smaller sizes)

      Thanks for reading!

      That's a lot of money to spend on a hair care product so I could see why you were nervous. I have very wavy hair. Do you think it would work for that? Nice review and thanks for including the other brands that you have tried. Voted up, interesting and useful.
