  1. Hello Lauren:
    I am Alyssa Gorelick’s aunt and I love your blog! It keeps going to my junk mail, however. Have to find a way to fix that.
    I am intrigued by the MM and might try it. I see there was a comment from someone with fine curly hair, like mine, saying it did not work. Hmmm… I have tried the WEN (which amazingly worked well before it stopped working and made me itchy) and the No Poo, just okay. Do enough people love this product? Thanks!

  2. Are there any other methods you can recommend? I’m a fan of your blog, and from Australia. The only problem is these shampoo’s are so expensive over here I’d never hope to be able to afford them. It’s fantastic that you’ve found something that works for you, however I don’t believe that this guy is the only person in the entire world who’s got natural hair care right. For those of us who don’t have access to or can’t afford his products, there has to be other options for chemical free hair care? I’m recovering from hormonal imbalance and CFS and I refuse to go back to mainstream hair products.

  3. I use some MM products, such as the Detox, both diamond and sapphire mists and the Euro Oil–all of which I find very super. I’m 8 years quite strict on a food program very similar to yours, and corn is a food I avoid at all costs.

    I have a big problem with MM’s ingredient choice of Xanthum Gum from non-gmo corn (if that is even possible) which is in ALL of their shampoos and conditioners. As much as I want to use their shampoo and conditioners, I would need them to reformulate to using Guar Gum or something else. Lauren, I wonder if you have ever brought this up with MM? It seems as if a corn-free alternative would be important to many people, not just myself. I think it would be a stellar move on their part.
