It seems somewhat impossible that I have, here-to-fore, missed the Moroccanoil Mania. It's been tweed-ling around in my brain for awhile, but with a closet full of shampoo and conditioner that can rival the a mid size CVS, I didn't feel compelled to purchase it.
This week I spent some quality time in the Berkshires, with one of my BFF's Barbara Newman. Even we can't believe how many years we've been friends. Though the number seems staggering, where on earth have all the years flown by?It's a testament to the power of an everlasting bond, that has and will, always withstand time and miles.
We spent a good chunk of Wednesday at the Spa at the Cranwell Resort & Spa in Lennox, Mass., finishing in the evening with two glorious massages. I like showering after a massage, and if the facility is scrupulously clean and filled with good products, I never hesitate.
I was excited to see their showers were equipped with the original Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. The only glitch was that we both forgot to take our hairbrushes and with us. As well, the temperature had taken an unexpected dip, so it seemed unwise to leave with soaking wet hair.
So I thought...Knowing I was disappointed, Barbara thoughtfully filled two mouthwash cups with shampoo and conditioner and packed them carefully in a shower cap to surprise me with when we got home.
Hooray! Love you B.!!!
Though we had no clue which was which, I hoped to figure it out in the shower. One cup is thinner and had a pearly essence. I guessed that was the shampoo. After attempting to create a lather, without much success, I figured I mixed them up. The other cup's contents were rich and creamy. I tried that and got zero suds, so I went back to the first one.
Ultimately, I decided to lather twice to ensure my hair was really clean, but the suds did feel silky and my hair was not stripped. The conditioner was luxurious and smelled delicious. I couldn't wait to see how my hair looked after drying it.
There was zero humidity, so it's a bit hard for me to tell if the reason my hair dried silky straight was from the weather or the Moraccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.
Though my hair is incredibly overdue for a cut, (this is the longest I have gone without cutting it in my adult life). I received a half a dozen compliments on the way my hair looked today...(figures I'm getting it cut at Warren Tricomi in the morning.)
Anyway, I'm glad I had the opportunity to sample these storied products (the founder discovered the powers of Moraccan Oil in Israel, when her dry damaged hair was restored after a failed color appointment).
Eventually, I might even get around to purchasing them...
