Introduction to Moroccanoil texture clay review
We have been on a hair clay review streak here since our last one being the Hanz De Fuko Claymation! Personally, hair clays are one of my top favourite products due to its flexibility for restyling. Also, lately most hair clays brewers are creating clays that are more unorthodox compared to the traditional ones which were more dry and rigid. Today, I would like to introduce you to the Moroccanoil Texture Clay Review. This brand itself is probably more commonly known for their female beauty products, but they actually do have several unisex products, including the Moroccanoil Texture Clay. This brand known for its Argan Oil (a.k.a Moroccan Oil) for being extremely rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E), essential fatty acids and antioxidants, that helps to moisturize and soften your hair. Will this product able to endure the harsh humidity? Let’s dive in to our review
Moroccanoil Clay Design and Packaging
Filled in a semi-transparent plastic jar, with their signature ocean green/blue, their designs are pretty consistent for all of their products
It weighs only 75g (2.6 oz), which is very light and definitely flight-friendly. I would say their packaging is also convenient for you to bring along in your gym back as well. On the label, it is mentioned that this product is suitable for hair types, which really got me interested to see how well it will tame will stubborn hair.
Moroccanoil Texture Clay claims to the following scent – spicy amber and musk with sweet florals. Personally, I would say is a bit too strong for me. Initially I wasn’t too fond of it, but over time, we were in peace. Overall, I neither like nor dislike the scent.
Performance of Moroccan Oil Texture Clay
Upon scooping this hair styling clay out, this clay is definitely different from Hanz De Fuko Claymation. It is much softer, creamier to a certain extent. I would say probably the use of both bentonite clay and shea butter does really help its texture to be soft. Breaking it down on the hand was super easy and I could feel some stickiness, not overly sticky.
Despite its stickiness, I could apply and style it on my hair quite easily. I could feel there’s some grip during the styling. I have attempted for dry hair and damp hair. My take is it is best on dry hair as it provides more volume and texture.
I would say this is one of the most restylable hair clay. Yes, you do feel some stickiness but your hair does not harden. In fact, it feels softer than before.
Low Shine. There’s still some shine to it though it is claimed to be a pure matte product.
If you blow dry with hair dryer, the Moroccanoil Texture Clay does give you some good volume.
For hold, this is not the product that gives you stronghold. This product is designed to give you more medium hold for better restylibility. For a humid weather with medium thickness hair, the hold could be better. I believe this product is more suitable for men with fine hair.
Tested in humid weather, it lasted me around 3-4 hours before I have to touch up on my fringes and sides. Thankfully this product is versatile for me to restyle!
One cycle of shampoo does the job.
Suitable for Hair Types
- Thickness – Fine Hair
- Works great for both Straight, Wavy Hair.

Since the Morrocanoil Texture Clay is more versatile with medium hold, I would say you could go for natural style with some definition

- Classic side parting
- Brushed back with some volume on top
