I love my hair and I treat my luscious locks the same way as my skincare; with extra tender, love, and care. And just like my skincare, I change around products from time-to-time to suit my hair needs. But one product I ALWAYS use is Moroccanoil Treatment. I could go on about that product, but I’ll save it for another day.
Right now, let’s talk about colouring hair. I am technically not one to have my hair coloured. I love my natural brown hair (in certain lighting it appears lighter than usual). But just because I like to keep it natural, doesn’t mean I don’t like the idea of playing around with hair colour whether as hair extensions or in photoshop. That being said, if there’s a way to walk out in public with coloured hair without the long-term commitment or hair damage, sign me up!

Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask – Bordeaux
Bordeaux is truly a crimson brown shade. The product has a pretty runny consistency and has the signature Moroccanoil scent. Because of the colour, I highly suggest to not wear light colour clothing and to be extra careful during application, as it will stain. When it comes to rinsing, it took a while to rinse off. But you’ll know when everything is rinsed off when you gently wring your hair and the water is clear.
The end results for Bordeaux is a bit of a disappointment for my dark brown hair. In natural lighting, there is a subtle difference but barely. When I used flash photography, however, there is a clearly visible dark red hue. On the plus side, my hair did look shinier and felt smoother.
Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask – Cocoa
Cocoa is a chocolate brown shade. The product is quite thick compared to Bordeaux. I’m not sure if it’s the colour or because of the packaging. It also has the signature Moroccanoil scent. Application wise, it won’t stain as scary as Bordeaux but still be extra careful – wear dark colour clothing and wear gloves if you don’t want the product to temporarily stain your nails. Rinsing the product off seemed to be easier and not as messy.
Similar results to Bordeaux, I was disappointed with Cocoa. It’s hard to notice a difference but it did enhance my natural hair colour ever so slightly and left my hair looking and feeling smooth and silky. And again, with flash photography, there’s a noticeable colour difference.
Overall, if you’re looking for actual colour in your hair and have anything darker than medium brown hair, I would not quite suggest these colour hair masks, mainly because the results aren’t going to be as visible in natural lighting. If you simply want to enhance your natural dark hair colour, this is not a bad way to do so. To those who have lighter hair colour, go ahead, experiment and have fun!
P.S., I have medium-to-long length hair and the 30ml pouch is enough as one use for my entire head. So if you’re simply experimenting with different colours or just wanting a one-time-try go for the 30ml pouch. But if you have longer hair or know that you’re going to apply the same colour regularly, opt for the 200ml bottle.
