I’ve been a very loyal Moroccanoil user for awhile now, but recently I’ve been cheating a bit. I started using the Wella System Professional Luxe Oil. I wasn’t necessarily looking to change my routine, but a friend gave me a bottle and I’m always up for trying something new.
My first impression of it was that it’s in a very pretty bottle and has a strong perfume-like scent.
During the last month or so that I’ve been using it, I’ve noticed a big difference in my hair. It’s definitely much smoother and less frizzy, even on the days that I actually forget (gasp!) to put any hair product on. It’s also taking me much less time to straighten my hair (yay!)
I even put both oils to the test by going back to Moroccanoil for a few days and making sure that I was applying the same amount of both. The SP oil gives me much smoother hair with less styling time, while MO is a bit less oily (and leaves less residue on my hands) and has a nicer scent.
Bottom line: I recommend the Wella System Professional Luxe Oil for anyone with curly hair like mine, or with thick hair looking to reduce some frizz.
The catch: It’s not sold in the US – so if you’re in the US, you’ll probably need to stick to Moroccanoil or find this on one of your travels.
