I’ve heard about Morrocco Method Int’l products through friends and the kind people at Morrocco Method Int’l sent me two sample products to review. I wasn’t sure what to make of them when I opened the Earth Essence Shampoo.
As you can see, it’s pretty much a muddy texture.
What’s in this stuff?
- Water (Aqua)
- Micronized Pure Southwestern White Clays (Montmorrillonite)
- Micronized Grey, Red, and Brown Kaolin Clays
- Soapbark (Quillaya Saponaria)
- Green Tea (Thea Sinensis)
- Naturally Foaming Cactus (Opuntia Erinacea)
- Blood of the Dragon Rare Protien (Jatropha Dioica)
- Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis)
- Red, Brown, and White Algae Leaf Extract (Spirunlia Platensis)
- Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (Acetic Acid)
- Essential Oils of Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin), Palmarosa (Cymbopogon Martenii), and Ylang Ylang
- 92 Trace Minerals and Rare Plant/Marine/Fruit Proteins as Natural Preservatives
I had doubts as to the cleanliness factor of putting a mud in my hair, but looks are deceiving. I used half of the shampoo sample to coat my hair in the shower and let it sit on my hair for about two minutes. I suppose I should have read if there were instructions for this, but realistically, that’s all the time I really had. One thing that I noticed, my hair did feel thicker. Considerably so. It also smelt strongly of patchouli. I suppose at this moment, I realized I had crossed into full fledge hippy and wasn’t afraid really, I know these products are MUCH better for my hair than any mainstream shampoo could ever be. My hair tends to get a bit oily and this particular shampoo did help stop that. When I was just doing my no ‘poo Apple Cider Vinegar/Baking Soda routine, I would feel my hair get greasy the next day if I skipped a day of it. That alone makes this product valuable to me.
The Sapphire Volumizer Mist Conditioner & Moisturizer was helpful to increase thickness as well.
- Micro Clustered Ionized Water
- Grapeseed (Vitus Inifera) Extract infused in Cold Pressed St. John’s Wort
- Pure essential Oils of Wild Rose (Rosa Rubiginosa), Evening Primrose (Oenathena Biennis), Sandalwood (Santalum Albus) Frankincense and Myrrh (Commiphora Myrrha)
It didn’t have an odour at all. I really felt my hair strengthened while using this. I was so sceptical, but it worked for me. I have wavy frizzy hair and I didn’t feel either product was heavy or greasy. I do have to use products to tame the frizz in my hair, but luckily that didn’t override the Volumizer Mist that I sprayed on while my hair was wet. You can use the spray on wet or dry hair.
Over all, I am very glad I received the samples and I know I will be looking for these products from now on. I think they’d make a lovely gift to your favourite blogger, perhaps? Haha. I kid.
This weekend I am FINALLY getting myself together to go red yet again – I’m using Morroco Method Henna Red. Woo! Will definitely blog about that.
