I alternate this lighter version of Moroccan oil with the regular version, using this on days I do not use heat styling. I wrote about the regular version in an earlier post here. The Beauty Brains have a great post on the ingredients in Moroccanoil and the contents. Personally, I am very happy with the Moroccanoil brand despite its high price. My hair is of a very fine texture, oily, and prone to split ends if I mistreat it. I use it on my ends so I only use a bit at a time. It absorbs into my hair immediately and does not seem to leave any residue. My hair is extremely prone to tangles throughout the day and I’m hoping this helps reduce the damage of frequent brushing. I will repurchase this unless something cheaper and comparably effective comes my way.
