Holistic hair care: health from root to tip

My relationship with natural hair care has been rocky to say the least.

I *thought* I’d found the perfect natural alternative to my nasty-filled shampoo and conditioner, only to learn I was the victim of some very skillful green-washing (gosh darn it!).

Then I decided I was going to get really crunchy.

You know what I’m talking about…

No poo: baking soda and water to wash, and ACV to rinse. But alas, I didn’t have the dedication to deal with the transition period (think “hot, greasy mess” while your hair adjusts) and it was too big of a task for my trusty DIY all-natural dry shampoo to handle.

And then I stumbled upon Morrocco Method and the rest is history.

We’re now in a pretty committed relationship and it’s been awesome.

(This post is not sponsored by the company. But I do like their products so much that I am now an affiliate, meaning I get to bring you some sweet offers like the discount below for a small commission at no cost to you as a way to support the time and effort I put into this blog.)

Morrocco Method is not simply natural hair care, it’s holistic hair care.

What the heck does this mean?

Well other natural hair products may be nasty-free and this is great. However, they can contain agents that strip hair of its natural oils and irritate the scalp. Holistic hair care, on the other hand, promotes healthy hair from root (the scalp) to tip. It focuses not only on cleansing but also nourishing and detoxing.

Some noteworthy points about Morrocco Method and holistic hair care:

They do not contain any synthetic fragrance

This is HUGE since even “natural” products often contain the ever-suspicious “fragrance”.

The shampoo does not foam

This is a bit to get used to if you’re transitioning from conventional shampoo, but this is what makes the shampoo so great for your hair and scalp since it cleanses without stripping. At first you’re in the shower wondering if your hair is possibly going to get clean. But after you get out and your hair dries, you see that ooh yes, not only is your hair clean but super shiny and smooth as well! Yes, this was exactly my thought process with using MM for the first time.

They are specially formulated for YOUR hair and scalp

I have been using the Earth Essence shampoo which is thickening and meant for normal to oily hair and scalp. This is EXACTLY what I need since I have thin, oily hair (an unlucky combo, I know).

The shampoos and conditioners are super concentrated

The shampoos and conditioners seem pricey at a glance, but since they are concentrated, you use less than you would with other shampoos and they last awhile. I use about a quarter-sized dollop of shampoo to wash the crown of my head to keep the natural oils in the rest of my hair, and condition the ends with about the same amount (I also use the Sapphire Volumizer Mist as a leave-in conditioner). 

Holistic haircare goes beyond product

I highly recommend using a boar bristle brush to help spread your hair’s oil from your scalp through the rest of your hair. I do this daily as a natural conditioning treatment. Morrocco Method also carries scalp massagers to stimulate blood flow, helping your sebaceous glands balance, which I really want to try!

They are 100% natural and non-toxic

Even the hair coloring — it’s henna!

  1. I absolutely LOVE these products! I’ve been using it for almost two months. I’d been using the no poo method for a short time before starting. That was great and all and actually transitioned quite nicely but it was stripping the henna from my hair prematurely. I decided to give Morrocco Method a go because of that. It did take what seemed like forever to adjust (let’s just say my hair was braided all of the time, ha)…I think my hair was just so damaged from this and that but I haven’t looked back since! I HIGHLY recommend their products as well. The prices do seem on the higher end at first glance but the bottles last forever! I use about a quarter sized drop of shampoo mixed in an empty bottle with about 6 oz of water mixed with it each time. Works perfect! Thanks for the coupon code! Their boar bristle brush is definitely next on my list!

  2. I just love your blog! I am going to try these products! I’m always looking for the next best honest to goodness natural hair stuff!

  3. Am I missing something or are these packaged in plastic? Do they sell refills so you can at least re-use the bottle?

    If you are truly trying to be environmentally minded, you should look to shampoo bars. No wasteful or harmful packaging.

  4. Hi=) what to do with my bleached hair?? i went to the hairdresser about 6-7 months ago, to be a hairmodell for a show…she bleached my hair twice, and the results where so bad i couldnt join the hairshow. I have been struggeling with this horrible tangled knots in my hair ever since. Supricingly enough it is the hair in my roots and 7-12 cm from the roots wich is the biggest problem, the lenghts are easier to mantain tangle free. I can use up to 2 hours brushing the knots out of my hair, and still the night after i allmoust have dreads!! and i dont want to keep on brushing my hair like that every night, not only because of the timeconsume but also beacause of the major hairloss:( its so damaged! what to do? i use coconut oil, castor oil packs everytime i wash my hair, is there any other tricks? other oils, es.oils? please help, im finaly at the hairlenght i want, but its getting thinner and thinner, and it looks like a mess! gratefull for any help ppl :))) love and light (:

  5. Hi, I just found this blog post as I am looking into transition my hair to a happier place. It’s thin which unfortunately means its prone to breakage and also oily. It’s been looking really dull and lifeless.I realize this post is a few years old, which makes me wonder…. are you still using these products and still recommend them or have any other recommendations? It looks like ordering online is the most convenient as there are not many retailers. But we are travelling and without a home base its still doable, just not as easy to find somewhere to ship to. Thanks!
