Silk of Morocco is a hair product the sellers claim is a multi-tasking moisturizing miracle. They state if you use Silk of Morocco on your frizzy or thinning hair the formula will nourish your follicles and naturally boost their growth, resulting in supermodel locks that are ready for the runway.
How Silk of Morocco Works
Silk of Morocco doesn’t all the ingredients in their hair product, except to state it’s a secret formula containing an “elixir” of essential oils, including pure argan oil; argan oil comes from a nut from the argan tree, which only grows near Morocco and is currently one of the hottest buzzwords in hair care.
To use Silk of Morocco, they instruct you to make it part of your hair care regimen for 21 days. After this time period is up, they claim your lifeless hair will now be gorgeous and will drive men crazy and you’ll be the envy of other women.
They terms like “clinically proven” and “years of expert development and scientific research.” However, while it is true that argan oil has been used both externally on the face and skin as well as used in foods for centuries, there is very little evidence (other than anecdotal) that it is good for hair. According to Dr. Benabio, M.D.’s blog The Derm blog, there is no scientific evidence it can make your hair grow thicker or fuller.
The “Free Trial” (and True Cost):
To get you to try Silk of Morocco, they claim to offer a free 30-day trial of the product for $4.95 in shipping fees and a “100% satisfaction guarantee.” However, the fine print in the Terms and Conditions reveals several caveats.
First, the 30 days starts on the day of order and includes shipping time; they also state you must contact them within 21 days, otherwise you will be enrolled in their auto-ship program, sent more Silk of Morocco every 30 days and billed $84.97 per month until you cancel.
For a full refund of purchased products, they say you must return the product within 15 days from when the product was shipped to you and you can only receive an RMA by contacting email@example.com – they promise they will respond within 24 hours.
Bottom Line: Is Silk of Morocco a Scam?
Every woman wants full, silky, gorgeous hair so it’s understandable why Silk of Morocco is so appealing. While some causes of thinning hair may be hereditary or due to stress, most women still seek remedy from hair products like Silk of Morocco.
But we’d like to point out some important things. First, they don’t list the ingredients, so you don’t really know what you are getting. (It may promise argan oil is in it, but how much?) Also, when you sign up for their “free trial,” unless you act very quickly you will be subscribed to an auto-ship program.
Finally, Silk of Morocco admits: “We do not warrant, represent or imply that our products will provide you with any particular benefits, or that your results will match those of others who consume or use our products. Individual results will vary from person to person. Results are not typical.”
