Where online can I buy Moroccan Oil for hair treatment?I've found this Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector should be the best for damaged and dry hair, and wonder if it can be bought anywhere online? Seems to be out-of-stock everywhere for online purchase:

2It probably is one of those oils. Argan oil, which is from Morocco, is trendy and expensive. And calling this "Moroccan oil" is no doubt meant to suggest that it has argan oil. But the label doesn't say so, and you can be sure it would if it could. Morocco produces rapeseed and sunflower oil, maybe others.

5I usually had quite straight and almost black hair as a child. But burned myself severely on two occassions: one time on an island in Australia (sun above head, not in the horizon, extremely strong), walking along the beach whole day without any hat or sun protection. Burned the skin also, so it's quite white now (I used to have very dark-coloured skin). The second occassion was in Miami, USA in Florida, which was as bad as in Australia.
I usually only use shampoo about 2 times a week, and can notice the hair is much healthier by this (darker, more oily).
I was thinking of using Moroccan argan oil both on my skin (which is very dry) and in my hair as a hair treatment, after reading only positive reviews about it. The best would be if I could buy Moroccan argan oil in Hong Kong but I'm not sure they have it.

6Firstly the sun wouldn't affect the hair follicles unless you burnt them as well and secondly the sun won't bleach your skin.
It's a complete misnomer that by only washing your hair once or twice a week or month or year in some cases (believe me there are people out there who think by not washing their hair, it will clean itself and end up soft and shiny). Your hair like your skin gets dirty, it attracts all kinds of environmental pollutants including everyday dirt dust and grime.
Your skin hair and nails have an acid ph of 4.5-5.5, so you should use a shampoo with the same ph, this will help keep the cuticle closed unlike more acid or alkaline shampoos that swell the cuticle causing it to fray. Of course I don't expect you to believe this, you see I spent a over a quarter of a century advising people about their hair when I was in hairdressing and to be honest It was like talking to the floor. People would say if I buy that expensive conditioner, will it solve my hair problems. Towards the end of my hairdressing term I lost all sense of tact and would reply to the like of "no, pearls come from oysters, not cockles".
There is no point in wasting your money on branded hair oil until you have corrected the ph level of your hair, all you will do is damage the hair more by infrequently washing with what I assume to be alkaline shampoo and then applying oil and your hair will be no different. As for your skin being dry, maybe you need to replenish your body with essential fatty acids, one teaspoon per day should do it.

9Ok, thanks askvivi. I really would like to try Moroccan oil also, but it seems a bit complicated to order. I tried ordering from Amazon to Hong Kong, but there were restrictions so I couldn't complete the order. Also the same with Rylees, and at Safrons they were out of stock.

10Askvivi, how would you describe the hair's "stiffness" after using Moroccan oil? I've already found a good shampoo in Hong Kong that works fine, but the hair still gets a bit too "soft" so I still don't get rid of the curls. Will my hair get stiffer also after using Moroccan oil, more heavy?
