Product Review: New Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment

Once upon a time I could never have dreamt of putting oil into my hair, but over the last couple of years I have realised the benefits, and love how it makes my hair feel and look. Here are my thoughts on the updated *Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment;

What They Say:
"Formulated to leave your hair both stronger and feeling softer, the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment creates long-lasting shine without leaving hair feeling heavy. It’s naturally-rich Argan Oil formulation is non-greasy and combats frizz to leave hair naturally manageable."

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

What I Say:

The Royal Moroccan products have just unveiled a new look. The Turquoise packaging has been replaced with a deep rich burgundy colour which has been inspired by the colours of Moroccan d├ęcor. And I really love this chance in colour, as the turquoise colour was simply too similar to the Moroccan Oil brand of products.

Inside the burgundy box you find a gorgeous glass bottle with the golden treatment serum. The Royal Moroccan products contain argan oil known for its nutritive, cosmetic and medicinal properties, and it claims to work to make hair soft, silky smooth and easy to comb.

I usually wash my hair every second day, and on the days I don’t wash it, after I have combed it, it does look a little frizzy and the ends a little dry, but using the oil is making my hair look and feel so much nicer, shinier and healthier. It simply controls the frizz and ‘gathers’ the ends.

I have also used the oil after washing my hair before combing it, and it makes it such a breeze to comb my long thick hair. And once dry, my hair is clearly enjoying this extra moisture treatment, as my hair feels soft, shiny and very moisturised.  

After having used the Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment daily for several weeks, I do feel that my hair is feeling moisturised and is looking , and without the oil having built up in my hair or weighing it down.

The Serum Treatment has a beautiful and delicate sweet natural scent, and as I really like this scent I would like it to linger around for a bit, but unfortunately it fades rather quickly after the oil has absorbed into the hair.

As mentioned, the Serum Treatment comes in a glass bottle, which does make the oil look more luxurious than if it had come in a plastic bottle, and in fact the glass bottle makes it look more like a bottle of perfume. However, the glass bottle is also a little impractical as you don’t want to drop it on the bathroom floor, as well as it is not particularly handy for travelling.

The serum in very concentrated, so a word of advice is to only use a little at a time to avoid your tresses becoming greasy, you can always go back for seconds. And due to the bottle having a very large opening, it is very easy to dispense too much product so it would be nice if it did come with a pump, or at least a small plastic cap inserted into the opening to be able to better control the amount of oil you get.

What I Like:

  • Fantastic a making your hair easy to comb, reducing frizz and providing the hair with a moisture boost
  • Great price for a large 100ml bottle
  • Very concentrated so the bottle will last you a long time
  • Has a gorgeous scent
  • The luxurious look of the glass bottle

What I Don’t Like:
  • The glass bottle which is not very practical
  • The large opening of the bottle which makes it easy to dispense more oil than needed, and hence waste unnecessary product

All in all, it is a great Serum Treatment is a great product that makes my hair feel soft, tames flyaways and gives it a healthy shine, all while not weighing it down or making it feel greasy. At $29.95, it is great value for money, compared to other argan oil hair products available on the market, and a bottle will last you forever as it is so concentrated. If you’re looking for a new hair oil, then I highly recommend that you try this one.
