Moroccan Oil V Macadamia Healing Treatment Oil

13 comments
For over a year now, hair oil has become a solid part of my haircare routine. It's an essential for my poor dry and damaged ends that they get their treat of a smoothing oil treatment to apologise for the hurt I cause them on a daily basis. I have been an avid fan of Moroccan Oil Treatment for a long time now, delving into the Moroccan Oil world after trying high street hair oils such as Loreal and Schwarzkopf (which is a really good oil if you're on a budget). Then came along the Macadamia Healing Treatment Oil*, meaning I really got to weigh in the results in this mini beauty battle - so who will win, Morroccan Oil or Macadamia? There's only one way to find out - FIGHT! (Sorry)
 
 

Price:
Let's talk about that big old elephant in the room. Both of these hair oils sadly don't come cheap. The Moroccan Oil I own is the larger size of 125ml which retails at £31.85 - ouch! Where as for exactly the same size of 125ml, Macadamia Healing Oil will set you back £25.45 - that's still a hefty price tag by all means, but it's still cheaper. What I love about both of these products is that you don't have to commit to them fully. There are small travel sizes available, meaning you have plenty of time to fully test out the hair oil to see what you think before splashing out on a full sized product.
Winner - Macadamia.

Design and Packaging:
Both products are salon worthy and look pretty high end on your bathroom shelf (If I had one) but which one just about makes the cut? For me I think it has to be Moroccan Oil - I love the cute little blue boxed packaging it arrives in and I generally think it looks a little sleeker than Macadamia's. Macadamia has its unique design and it is certainly pretty, but I think Moroccan Oil just about pips it to the post. Now, a main aspect of any expensive product, is whether the retailer is generous (!) enough to provide you with a pump or if you have to buy it yourself - I'm looking at you Estee Lauder! However both Moroccan Oil and Macadamia are the same when it comes to a pump - if you buy a smaller size, you wont receive a pump, but if you splash out on a larger size - then as if by magic, you are granted a pump!
Winner - Moroccan Oil

Results:
Welcome to the most important part of this post - which oil gives the better results? If I am to be entirely honest, the oils are not all that different. They are both thick formulas which aim to give you smoother and silkier hair. However, if I was to choose an ultimate winner, I'm afraid Moroccan Oil has just pipped it to the post again. The reason I give for this, is because after testing out the Macadamia Oil for a few weeks; straight after just one use of Moroccan Oil -I could tell the difference straight away. My hair felt a lot smoother and softer than it had been feeling in the recent weeks. I do recommend Macadamia oil, please don't get me wrong, I think it's a lovely hair oil and is perfect for the slightly cheaper alternative. To get more of an insight on my love for Moroccan Oil, you can read my full review here.
Winner -  Moroccan Oil

  7. I use the light version of Moroccan oil which I love. I use a lot of it so perhaps I need to invest in the original formula. Always interested to try alternatives but its just so good I end up going back to it time and time again.
