There are many hair treatments out there to replenish your hair, however, the Moroccanoil Treatment of original or light is a great hair product for all your hair needs. But, what is the difference? In this article, we will talk about if the original or light best suits your hair.
Moroccanoil Treatment Original
The Moroccanoil treatment original was the first product that Moroccanoil put on their market. This product has argan oil installed right in it, which is loaded with nutrients to provide your hair with the best care. Argan oil is rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins that are important for your hair. Having grown in such harsh, dry conditions, argan oil is also known for its UV protection properties.
The Moroccanoil original treatment is a versatile, nourishing and residue-free formula designed to repair and transform hair. This product will also tame the flyaways , condition split ends, and smooth hair that gives it an added shine as well. Additionally this conditioning treatment aids in detangling hair, improves manageability and significantly speeds up blow-drying time.
Being a dense formula, the Moroccanoil Treatment Original is recommended for thick, coarse hair that is dry, curly and unmanageable.
Moroccanoil Treatment Light
The Moroccanoil Treatment Light offers all the same benefits as the Original, however is better suited for people with fine and light-colored hair (bleached and grey hair). It’s basically the same formula, with all the same ingredients, only in a lighter form, texture and color.
The Moroccanoil Treatment Light is simply lighter making it more manageable in fine and thin hair. In terms of color if you have chemically lightened hair, then the Light treatment is recommended over the Original for protecting your hair color.
Original: Use if you have thick, coarse, curly hair. Also good if you are naturally light, but still have lots of hair.
Light: Use if you have fine, thin, brittle hair. Recommended for anyone who has bleached, platinum blonde, or grey hair.
