The Magic of Morrocanoil

I often receive compliments on my hair being soft and shiny.  I think that a lot of it has to do with my East Indian heritage so I’m pretty lucky!  Nevertheless, I do take good care of my tresses with regular trims and minimal coloring.  My latest love is the Montreal-based Morrocanoil line of products which contain argan oil, a expensive oil derived from the berries of the argan tree in Morocco. After using the Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner, I simply apply a few drops of the Moroccanoil Oil Treatment before styling. It’s absorbed super-fast for being an oil and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling in the hair at all.  During our cold Canadian winters, I periodically use the Moroccanoil Dry No More Scalp Treatment which provides that extra dose of nourishment.

Even Fergie is raving about Moroccanoil in this month’s People magazine,  “I brush it through my hair and let it soak all night.”

Ask your stylist for a sample and you’ll soon want more!

Fit for a King

King Mohamed VI of Morocco has not spared any expense in welcoming guests to his sumptuous new hotel, Le Royal Mansour which is comprised of 53 luxurious riads in the old medina of Marrakech. Nestled within 8 acres of fragrant gardens, each riad comes with its own rooftop pool and enchanting views of the Atlas Mountains. There are underground tunnels within which staff operate, discretely handling the needs of discerning globetrotters.  A luxurious Moroccan spa and hammam, library, 3 Michelin-starred restaurants and private butler service are some of the features of this property. A magical experience awaits for $2100 to $28,000 per night, depending upon size of the room.
