Product Review: Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment

I have quite long hair, which consequently has been through its fair share of damaging hair styling and hair colouring sessions, and as a result, my hair is often looking a little dry and lacklustre. Like most others, I have taken a liking to the new hair oils, so I happily accepted when I was asked to trial the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment. Here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
"The Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment will put the life back into your sun-exposed locks. This lightweight, non-greasy formula smells like summer in a bottle and creates instant shine while deeply moisturising hair, helping to prevent pesky flyaways and smooth split ends".

RRP: $29.95 (100ml) – Available from Priceline, Kmart and Royal Moroccan Online

What I say:
The Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment is packaged in a pretty in a turquoise box with white and silver writing. Inside is the square’ish glass bottle with the treatment serum.

Royal Moroccan products contain argan oil as well as other nourishing ingredients such as grape seed oil, Dead Sea water, flower extracts, and aloe juice, all of which claim to work well together to make hair soft, silky smooth and easy to comb.

At first I tried the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment in my dry hair, and I ended up with too much serum in my hands, mainly because it was difficult to dispense just the amount I needed, and consequently my hair was left feeling little to greasy, although it still left my hair looking shiny and healthy, with no frizz.

When I next used the hair, this time in damp hair, I was a little more careful with the amount I used. I put into my damp hair before combing and styling it and it made it so much easier to comb my hair (in spite of using conditioner too), and after letting my hair dry naturally, it was soft, shiny and felt very moisturised. 

Since then, I have used the Serum Treatment both as a protector prior to heat styling my hair, but also as a shine serum on the days that I do not wash my hair, and as a treatment on the days I wash my hair, and the product is making my hair look and feel so much nicer, shinier and healthier. In terms of long term result from using the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment, I do feel that my hair seems more thoroughly moisturised, clearly thriving from a daily treatment boost. In spite of using it daily, I do not feel that the Serum Treatment in any way is building up in my hair, or weighing it down. The Serum Treatment has a beautiful and natural scent, which does not linger too much but fades soon after the serum treatment has absorbed into the hair.  

In regards to the glass bottle, I have to say that I do not find it very practical, and care definitely must be taken when handling the bottle in the bathroom, and especially after using the hair serum as it does tend to leave your hands a little greasy. However, the glass bottle no doubt does make the product seem more luxurious than if it had been presented in a plastic bottle.


The bottle also has a very large opening, so it is difficult to control how much oil comes out, and it is very easy to get too much, which is both wasting the product as well as making the hair feel and look greasy. It would have been nice if the product had come with a pump, or alternatively a least had had one of those plastic caps inserted into the bottleneck, which thereby reduces the amount of product you get.

All in all, it is a great Serum Treatment that does what it promises. Only a small amount of the Serum Treatment is required, so the 100ml bottle will last you a long time, so at $29.95, I find it great value for money, compared to other argan oil hair products available on the market. I can highly recommend this, and will definitely consider purchasing it again, as well as I will be looking into other products in the Royal Moroccan range.

Have you tried any of the products from the Royal Moroccan range? Which hair oil is your favourite?





  1. I love Moroccan oil! There are so many hair oils out these days :) my favourite hair oil at the moment is L'Oreal's Mythic Oil!

    1. I agree, there are so many, its hard to pick one. I havent tried the Mythic Oil, but heard good things about it!

  2. I have not tried anything from the Royal Moroccan range but I am definitely very tempted after seeing your review on this product.


    1. Thanks Liz. The products are very well priced, and handy they are available in Priceline too!

  3. I love Moroccan oil, I just have to be careful not to get it too close to my roots or by the end of the day my hair looks oily.

    1. I agree, but I think it goes for all hair oils that less is definitely more in making sure that your hair and roots dont look too oily!

  4. I haven't tried Moroccan oil before but I've heard a lot about it! I think I am afraid that it'll turn my hair into one greasy hot mess but this Royal Moroccan range looks great :) Shame about the opening for the product, it would be a little difficult to get the right amount of oil out!

    1. You actually get used to it, and quickly realise how little you use. My hair is loving it!
