There are a lot of positives about being blonde – it suits my skin way better than my naturally mousey brown, I like feeling sun kissed year round, and we maybe have more fun? But the one drawback has to be the upkeep. I’m not sure I realised quite what I was getting into when I started getting highlights, but my quest for light hair has been pretty much an obsession ever since – I’ve flown into New York to see the world’s best colourist (Kyle White at Oscar Blandi if you’re wondering, he’s a genius!) and I would go completely platinum if I thought I could pull it off!
As fun as being a blonde is, keeping my hair in good condition is a daily struggle. Since I have naturally wavy hair, not only do I bleach it, but I heat style it daily too! It’s the perfect recipe for fried ends and dull locks. So, in my pursuit of shine and bounce I’ve been using MoroccanOil’s incredible Light Treatment Oil.
Since you’re reading a beauty blog, I’m going to go ahead and assume you’ve heard of MoroccanOil. It was the first brand to really harness the power of hair oils, and it’s been declared a must-have ever since. But, since I have blonde hair, I am super wary about the kinds of oil I use. Some can be way too heavy, and even pure Argan Oil can leave light hair looking brassy. That’s where MoroccanOil’s Light Treatment oil comes in. It has been designed for fine or light coloured hair, yet still delivers the same amount of nourishment as the original formulation, but without overpowering hair. Packaged in the iconic MoroccanOil brown glass bottle, you can choose whether you want to pour the oil directly, or use the pump provided. Since I tend to be a bit on the klutzy side, I’ve opted for the pump.
I tend to apply a few pumps of the MoroccanOil Light Treatment Oil through the lengths and ends of my hair at night, then gather everything up into a topknot and head to bed. The light formula of the oil really helps to restore my hair’s shine overnight, and after washing it in the morning, my hair feels smoother and stronger than before. You can even use the oil as a styling treatment if you’re after super sleek hair – just apply a couple of drops through lengths and ends while the hair is wet, and then style like usual. My hair absolutely adores the stuff, and I do too! The scent of the Light Treatment Oil is really beautiful, and I feel like I’m in a fancy salon every time I use it!
