So I received this sample-sized bottle of Maghrabian Hair Oil in this month’s Glossy Box but I didn’t have a chance to try it before I posted my Glossy Box review.
I was worried that there wouldn’t be enough in bottle to cover my hair but the oil is actually quite thick and I easily covered all my lengths with about half the bottle (so around 5ml). I didn’t apply it to my roots because my hair can get greasy really quickly – I only apply hair oil to my roots too if it’s a big night out and I know I will be styling it that night and therefore washing it the next morning! But that’s just me.
I applied the oil this morning and wrapped my hair into a bun for 25ish minutes. I shampooed my hair twice just to make sure I got it all out. I then conditioned and blow dried my hair as usual. It has definitely made my hair feel softer and I will definitely be using the rest of the sample bottle. Would I but it again, though? Probably not, because it’s pretty expensive (£24 for 100ml, compared to around £10 for 100ml for L’oreal Elvive).
Also, the oil smells really strongly of mens’ deodorant when applied! After washing this smell disappears but it’s really strong! I didn’t mind it, but some might.
I know a lot of people got this in their Glossy Box – if that was you, what did you think?
