Macadamia vs Moroccan - war of the hair oils!


Regular readers will know all about my mission to repair my very damaged hair. If you've missed out on my whinges about it, read this post, as this is another instalment.

This week I've been trying the Moroccan Oil range. I'm a big fan of the Macadamia range, and I imagined this would be similar, but there are some differences, so I thought it would be worth comparing the two.

I use Macadamia Deep Repair Masque as a daily conditioner, yes that's how dry my hair is, and so far on this quest, it's the best product I've tried. It smells lovely, is very thick and rich and leaves my hair feeling in the best condition it's been in in years. But I HAVE to use it every day.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment is a great product. You apply it to wet hair and then dry as usual. It smells lovely, feels great and really helps smooth and soften my hair.
The Moroccan Hair Oil comes in a really cool medicinal looking bottle, and smells utterly divine. Seriously, I could sniff this stuff all day.

The Intense Hydrating Mask doesn't smell as yummy as the oil, it has a more artificial fragrance, and it's not as thick as the Macadamia. I used it in the shower, leaving on for around 7 mins. To be honest I know I'll get a better result if I leave it on longer, and although I try to do a deep conditioning treatment once a week, I need a product that's going to help on a day-to-day basis, as I'm a busy girl.

I then use the oil on wet hair, and dry it in. Both products (the Macadamia and the Moroccan oil) claim to reduce drying time, and I really think they do. Both have a similar effect on my hair, it's much, much softer than usual but the Moroccan leaves it a little fluffy, with the Macademia it tends to be more well behaved.

I get a good result with both of these ranges, and I'd recommend them to anyone who needs to put some moisture back into their hair, but I do think that Macademia has the edge over Moroccan. However, while they're working in the short term, my worry is that the condition of my hair isn't vastly improving overall - and that's something I really need to fix.

So my quest continues, further updates soon!

Moroccan is by far better than Macadamia. I tested both and since then I use only Moroccan. My hair have body and they're always shiny with natural motion!

I have severely damaged hair from coloring way too much, and I have been using the moroccan oil for three months now. I haven't colored my hair in that time, and I haven't cut it in two months. At first I saw really good results only when I used the oil, but the softness washed out every time I washed my hair. Some nights I use it as a deep conditioning hair mask and i mix it with avocado oil and sheabutter, I wash it out in the morning and reapply moroccan oil and blowdry it as usual. So now, after three months I see a huge difference in my hair. Remember I haven't had a hair cut, and it has still improved in texture. My hair has honestly healed, and I don't have to use the moroccan oil every time I wash my hair. I have never tried the macadamia oil, but I thought I would share my good experience with the moroccan oil. Over time I really think it heals hair! And it smells good...

Moroccan Oil - no contest. The macadamia oil just coats my hair. Moroccan oil penetrates and heals while adding sheen and smoothness. I was a die hard Moroccan fan, but on a whim decided to try the macadamia oil instead. Bad mistake. my hair is drying out under that coating and I have even had some breakage since I started using macadamia two weeks ago regularly. I will repurchase some Moroccan oil before my hair is totally dried out and ruined like back before using it!
