Shiny, Happy, Healthy Hair: Moroccan Oil
Jun. 30, 2020
If you’ve heard of the benefits of applying oil to your hair then you’ll have heard of Moroccan Oil. Moroccanoil has a buzz around it like no other, with millions of consumers, bloggers and salon professionals all rushing to get their hands on this hair care miracle, it has paved the way for hair oils in the market and Moroccan Oil has a signature scent that is known worldwide.
Moroccanoil's story began when co-founder Carmen Tal was traveling in Israel. She had her hair coloured, but the process left her hair incredibly damaged. A friend took Carmen to a salon, where she experienced a restorative hair oil treatment for the very first time. Carmen loved the transformation of her hair from damaged, dry, and lifeless to immediately shiny, smooth, and manageable. She went on a quest to share the magic of this argan oil hair treatment with people across the globe. At the time, oil was not a popular ingredient in hair treatments, but Carmen and her husband teamed up with a group of visionaries to perfect an amazing formula: Moroccanoil.
Moroccanoil’s argan oil is processed under the strict guidelines of the Fair Trade Program, which provides substantial socioeconomic support to thousands of families in the Souss-Massa region of Morocco. Revenues from this project provide income to families and help improve the working conditions of rural women. The money is also used for reading, writing, and management classes, as well as for modern infrastructure and technology that facilitate harvesting and ensure long-term management of the argan forest.
Moroccan oil is dedicated to providing the highest quality hair and body products, and now has grown into an iconic household beauty brand. “We are thrilled to be celebrating ten years of oil-infused innovation and today our goal remains unchanged—to empower beautiful transformations and create products that inspire confidence,” says co-founder Carmen Tal.
All of Moroccanoil's nutrient-rich, antioxidant infused formulas are made with the highest quality, authentic ingredients. They are equally passionate about their commitment to the integrity of their supply channel and only sell their products through salon professionals.
Morrocan Oil Benefits
- Prevents Split Ends: Argan oil in the product is absorbed into the hair cuticle to strengthen the hair and reduce the onset of split ends.
- Even Colouring: Moroccanoil helps even out the hair’s porosity, allowing colour to be applied more evenly. You can also add Moroccanoil to your colour mixture for ultimate protection, shine, elasticity and maximum absorption of colour
- Frizz Control: Products such as Moroccanoil’s Frizz Control spray are specially formulated for all hair types to control frizz. Infused with argan oil and Vitamin E with weather-resistant properties, Moroccanoil works to keep hair calm and manageable in damp or dry environments.
- Speeds up Blow-Drying Time: Moroccanoil detangles the hair to improve manageability
- UV-Protection: Argan oil is also a powerful UV protector and will help shield your hair from the effects of the sun.
- Superior Conditioning: Moroccanoil can be used with dry or wet hair to condition dry ends
- Hydrated, Revitalised Hair with Increased Elasticity: Moroccanoil was inspired by the transformative power of Argan oil. Rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, Argan oil helps Moroccanoil hydrate and soften your hair while also increasing elasticity and restoring shine and health to dull, lifeless hair.

Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
