OK. I wrote a post about MoroccanOil and how I didn't find it a good buy for ME. I felt it was laden with silicones and it didn't do anything better for MY hair than the OTHER silicone laden products I already use. Therefore, I felt it unnecessary to purchase, as I could find similar products with the same benefits for less money.
I received a slew of passionate responses defending MoroccanOil. I think that's great! I'm glad it worked for some people and I hope that someone on the fence about buying the product was able to get enough information from my post AND the comments to form a decision.
But I received a comment personally attacking me and my choice not to recommend it. I admit. I was pissed when I read it and quickly chose not to publish that nasty comment. I shouted at my computer "IT'S JUST A HAIR OIL THAT I PERSONALLY DON'T LIKE, LADY. DON'T TAKE IT AS A PERSONAL AFFRONT TO YOUR BELIEFS! JEESH!" Then I realized it's my blog and if I don't like comments I can delete them. But would I be the better person for doing that? Nope. So here is the comment. That I decided not to publish, but now will print here.
"wow i think you may change your mind if you used it more that 4 times. i have been using it for over a year now and never have build up. the argan oil that they use is the highest quality out there so not very much is needed. not too mention that may in the end be the result of people claiming that pure argan oil made their hair greasy. i respect your opinion however labeling it crap is rude and obviously you knew others would disagree so what are you calling all of the moroccan oil lovers out there?? I guess we are all stupid. "
Dear Anonymous. I believe you did not comprehend my post as it was written. I apologize if I was not clear. I did not call anyone who likes this product "stupid". I simply stated that I found it no better than OTHER silicone products out there. I also stated that there is no strong scientific evidence that Argon oil has any supernatural benefits for the hair or skin. I acknowledged that people may disagree with my opinion and I also asked them for their feedback, but you, anonymous poster, seem to take it so personally that I didn't like the stuff that my comment about MoroccanOil was akin to calling your baby, "ugly". Really? Is Moroccan Oil such a key item in your life that you have to get so riled up about one person's opinion?
So here you go Anonymous. Here is your comment for all to see and agree with or disagree with.
For the record.
I do not believe that people who use MoroccanOil are stupid. Nor would I ever call ANY of my readers stupid...even you "Anonymous"! Without you all, I'm shouting into the wind. All readers are valuable to me. You, a reader who disagrees with me, is valuable. I write this blog so others can see what I have to say. A self indulgent and narcissistic reason, but a reason none the less. Just because someone disagrees with me does not make them stupid. They just disagree with me. That's all. Life is too short to get upset over such trivial things.
Now I feel better. How about you?
