  1. I just started using MorroccoMethod recently and am loving it!! 🙂 The crystal mist is also fantastic. I use the Chi shampoo and conditioner b/c they don’t contain sesame (I am allergic) but I also use them because they work so well. My hair is soft and light and clean and natural – which is quite the feat for someone with almost waist length hair. Sure, there was a bit of a detox (switching from chemical products to natural) but it’s so worth it!! For your hair, your health, and your life 🙂

    (p.s. your boar brush links go to henna links on MM’s site)

      • You’re welcome! 🙂

        Yes, I actually discovered MM because of your older blog posts and was able to start trying it out thanks to one of your coupons. I just need to get a boar brush and then I’ll really be in business!

        I can’t wait to share MM with my friends & family, blog followers…really anyone who will listen to me haha

        keep up the great posts!

  2. I started using MM products a few weeks ago and love them. My itchy scalp feels a lot better but still going through some detox. I have been using no heat for a few weeks. Love the crème rinse and Diamond Crystal mist. It makes my natural curls more manageable.

  3. Thank you, I’m always looking for cleaner products and never know where to trust the investment. Sounds like folks are having great results.

    How long does the “detox” experience last (roughly)? 🙂

  4. This is timely, as I need hair help. I have wavy hair, and would love to let it dry naturally, but when I do it looks a litrle frizzy. If I brush it then its game over…..poofy and frizzy. I need a product that I can put in a leave it and it won’t go all stiff and sticky on me, Which one do you recommend?

  5. Hi Lauren!

    I want to try the MM products, I just really don’t know where to start?? How did you decide on the two shampoos you did? I want to buy their whole line of products! I have fine, curly hair that is a past my shoulders. I want to cut it shorter to help with getting all the “chemicals” out of my hair. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.

  6. I have been dying my hair for the past 18 months and have been working back towards my natural color after making a drastic change last fall. How do these products interact with hair that has been dyed with Paul Mitchell Products? The long term goal is no more hair dye but in order to make the transition healthy my stylist and I have been taking our time in going from dark back to my natural blonde. After using MM products, would I start the detox period all over again after going into the salon? Any tips you have on color treated hair and natural hair care would be wildly helpful!

  7. Lauren, I love your posts. This one is definitely my favorite. I started using the Moroccan Method a little awhile ago and now see you mentioning it here, isn’t it great? It has changed my wavy and super frizzy hair to something way more silky and manageable. Also the brush has been wonderful. I love the video on no-heat curls, thank you for that 🙂

  8. I really enjoyed this article and want to try the MM products now. I have another question related to hair care. I stopped washing my hair daily about a year ago. I typically go about 3 days between washings, sometimes more although it starts to get oily around 3 days. I have fine, straight hair, although I have lots of hair overall. I tried the “no poo” method once and did not like it.. I tried other homemade shampoos that did not work either, I believe it’s related to the ph balance issue. So instead I’m using conventional organic shampoos and conditioners, although not chemical free. Anyway, sometimes a day or 2 after I’ve last washed my hair, my hair starts to smell. I don’t know how to describe the scent, maybe sweat? But I don’t do anything that makes my scalp sweat. I feel like everyone around can smell my hair so I’m always avoiding people when it smells, I don’t want to go back to washing my hair daily, so do you have any ideas why or what I’m smelling? And what I can do to get rid of it? Putting essential oils on my hair doesn’t help either, I can still smell the stink.

  9. I wish somebody would post something like this for people who were not born with naturally semi-smooth and straight hair. These methods clearly do not work on any sort of hair that is not already an ideal texture and body composure. The thought of any of these methods even half working on my hair is laughable at best.

  10. I have thin fine hair, and I have tried everything under the sun to control my frizz! My hair always looks good, but it just takes forever to get it smooth and shiny………until I started using the Shielo Leave in Protectant. I use this product when my hair is still wet. WORKS WONDERS ON FRIZZ!! And since my hair is so fine and thin, I have to be very careful with using products that they don’t weight my hair down, AND THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WEIGH DOWN FINE/THIN HAIR! It is WONDERFUL. So if you’re the least big skeptical, DON’T BE, GO BUY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF! You will be glad you did 🙂

  11. Hi, Lauren!

    Any thoughts on the borax in the pomade and gel? I had been reading a few things that question the safety of borax, lately. It has left me a bit nervous about trying these products. I’d love to hear your take.

  12. I have thick, frizzy, wavy/semi curly red hair. I’m always trying the newest products or suggestions from my stylist. I’m not loyal to many brands. However, for once I could tell a noticeable difference in the texture of my hair after I started using the Shielo Hydrate Conditioner. My hair feels much softer and smoother. I’m not happy about the price, but so far I’ve decided Shielo is worth it. Love it!

  13. I’ve had psoriasis since I was a teen so I had to find alternative shampoos and conditioners. I use conventional ones to strengthen my hair (most ‘organic’ types are too heavy for my fine hair) but I do a hair treatment of Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Baby-Mild Castile Liquid Soap (a dime sized amount) and then I rinse with diluted cider vinegar diluted in a hair dye style bottle. My psoriasis has disappeared and it’s stronger than it has been in the past…My hair was falling out and nothing was helping for awhile there. I have just been diagnosed with UTCD and am going paleo as well.

    I will definitely be dying my hair with henna from now on….Are there any helpful sites so I actually dye my hair a lighter brown and not bleach blonde?

  14. I have naturally wavy hair – not too curly but definitely frizzy. I wear my hair both ways – naturally wavy as well as pin straight (via a flat iron).

    Either way I style my hair, I use the Somaluxe Exotic Oil Conditioner – It eliminates/makes the frizz go away and gives you a smooth and sleek look. This product does as good a job and smells great. I have been using the same bottle now for 2 months – it lasts a long time. . .

  15. This is very helpful! I think I might clean house on my hair products (and heat tools) for awhile. My hair has been breaking off badly and I attribute a lot of the damage to my products and NuMe hair straightener (that thing has ruined my ends!)

    I have almost shoulder length hair, naturally wavy and somewhat frizzy (thanks Irish roots!)
    Do you think that is overkill to change everything all at once? I’ve just been very frustrated recently and feel my hair is hurting my overall confidence as well.


    • My hair has gotten so much healthier since I stopped blow drying and I have split ends. I’m also a big fan of using sls free shampoo and washing it just once a week while using baking soda in between to keep it fresh.

  16. Thanks for this awesome tips . I didn’t know anything about this issue before your post . I am using hot air brush for my hair . Because after did many researches , I found that it is faster than curling wand or iron . But your tips very useful . I will apply and hope to see same results like yours . Thanks for this important inform .

  17. I came across this post from Pinterest; my hair is so fine and falling out and I have been desperate to try something to help it! I read all of the MM articles on their website and cannot wait to try out the system! Thank you so much!

  18. Hi, I’m also a big fan of organic Moroccan oil products for hair, I think they make a world of difference.
    I’ve only used coconut oil on dry skin, with amazing results, I think it’s worth a try for hair too. Thanks for all the great tips! Love your site 🌹
