FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I’m new to Morrocco Method, where do l start?
Welcome, and congratulations on choosing Raw, Paleo, synthetic chemical-free hair care - You have come to the right place for purity!
We suggest rotating all 5 shampoos, (Earth, Fire, Air, Water, and Ether) to get the best results from MM products.
The smaller 60ml trial / travel sizes is the perfect way to get started on your healthy hair journey. Rotate all 5 Shampoos, and use the conditioners as symptom relievers-depending on how your hair and scalp are acting on a day-to-day basis.
Please be aware of the Detox Period your hair may experience when switching to synthetic free, chemical free hair care products such as MM.
What is in MM products?
All MM products are made with pure plant botanicals, and are soy-free, coconut-free, (with the exception of the Earth Shampoo and Apple Cider Vinegar - soon to be removed), chemical-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, Paleo, and Raw. The FULL ingredient list for each product is listed on the respective product page as well as under the Education tab at the top of the site.
I have some allergies. How can l be sure MM is safe for me?
Our products are created with allergy sensitivities in mind, and contain absolutely no synthetic chemicals. However, if you have a plant allergy, please read the ingredients listed on each product page before purchasing.
Since there isn’t any foam, how do l get the shampoo through my hair?
Morrocco Method Shampoos are highly concentrated and it is much easier to spread the shampoo over your scalp and hair if you dilute it in a smaller bottle with 50% shampoo and 50% high quality filtered water. Only add the water right before you plan to use the shampoos as we do not use any synthetic preservatives. Water may invite mould growth, especially in a humid environment, like a shower. Then apply the mixture directly onto your scalp. If you have very thick or curly hair separate the hair with your fingers so that the shampoo goes straight onto your scalp. This way your scalp is able to absorb the raw nutrients from the shampoos. Plus, it's the perfect time for a scalp massage.
Why do l need to shampoo twice?
A perfect shampooing is achieved in two parts. The first shampooing cleanses hair and scalp of dirt, dead cells, and dust, which would otherwise be massaged back into the hair, scalp and follicle openings if only shampooed once. This clogging debris could retard new hair growth and severely damage the oil glands, upsetting the natural fall-out and reproductive cycles of your hair.
The second shampooing and massage of your clean hair and scalp stimulates the flow of blood to the scalp and widens the hair follicles, allowing the blood vessels to feed each root and bulb, nourishing the entire follicle and activating the sebaceous glands. This sets the proper distribution of your own natural oils to the entire scalp and hair shafts in motion. A natural coating of oil is vital to the maintenance of a healthy scalp and hair. It keeps the outer layer of hair lubricated and prevents drying.
As soon as you stop using synthetic shampoos and hair products, your body, may start going through a Detox Period. This is the process whereby your body attempts to push out any toxins, contaminants, or cleaners left over on your hair and scalp. Our shampoos lift and, with the help of water, flush out what your body wants to get rid of.
How much shampoo/conditioner do l need to wash my hair?
For shoulder length hair, we recommend a quarter size dollop of either the shampoos or wash out conditioners, Pearl Essence & Floating Lotus. For shorter hair, you may use a dime-sized amount. Because our products have no lathering agent, SLS, in them, it may be strange and different at first when you are trying to wash your hair with them. If mixed with a little water beforehand using a 50:50 ratio it may be easier to apply directly onto the scalp and to spread through the hair. A spray or applicator bottle is a nice alternative in this case as you may target specific areas around your scalp and hair.
How often should l rotate the shampoos?
Ideally you rotate all 5 MM Shampoos each time you wash your hair, however often this may be. Typically, because of Detox, we see clients shampooing every day in the beginning and then every other day, and so on as your body frees itself of what it no longer needs.
Unlike traditional shampoos, which strip your hair of its necessary oil film, our shampoos will keep the natural eco-system of your hair intact, so washing every day is OK. Just make sure to always listen to your hair and observe how it is doing.
I washed with MM and my hair doesn't feel great, what's going on?
You are experiencing hair detox. Build-up from chemical products are clogging the pores of your scalp and shafts of your hair and must be removed before you can begin your healthy hair journey. As your hair begins to "let go" of plastics, -cones, and chemicals, you will notice some changes in your hair. You may also notice some changes with your scalp as you experience detox. With the natural botanicals in MM shampoos (and lack of chemicals!) your scalp will begin to regulate its own oil production naturally. This may mean you experience an overly dry OR overly oily scalp. Give your scalp time to readjust and re-regulate its own oil production.
Why Is my scalp so oily after starting MM?
Because the scalp is accustomed to constantly being stripped of all of its precious sebaceous oil through chemical shampoos, it over compensates to protect itself and keep itself healthy by over-producing this oil. Basically, your scalp goes into shock every time you shampoo with sulfates and though you’re not washing with them anymore, it takes time for your scalp to catch up to what is happening. This may happen for as long as two months, until your scalp has a chance to realize — "Hey, nothing’s wrong anymore!"
Why does my hair feel dry or 'rough' after starting MM?
If hair is extremely damaged, the true nature of it will show once detox is under way. Dry, rough, frizzy hair is a result of constant heat damage or chemical relaxers, perms, treatments or dyes. It may also be a result of damage from friction, and improper cutting technique. Make sure you are brushing daily. The brushing will bring the sebaceous oils from your scalp and spread them to the tips of your hair. You may also want to give your hair a Euro Natural Oil treatment.
Why does my hair feel matted or 'sticky' after starting MM?
When releasing the chemical build-up from hair strands and the scalp, it is common for hair to stick together and become matted and tangled. This is a result of the plastics releasing from the hair and attempting to “grab on” to anything they can—in this case: the rest of your hair.
I can't wait for detox to end, is there any way to speed up the process?
For those that have gone through extensive damage to their hair, and are experiencing a particularly rough detox we recommend using the Zen Detox Hair & Scalp Therapy. This incredible clay hair mask, made specifically to pull toxins and heavy metals from the hair, helps to detoxify the hair and scalp and quicken the detox process. When starting MM, we suggest using this product once a week for three weeks in order to remove toxins from the hair and scalp while conditioning each strand.
How will I know when I'm done detoxing?
You will know. Once you've fully detoxed you won’t need chemicals to make your hair manageable as long as you continue to stay away from chemical products. The end result will be beautiful, manageable hair that naturally produces the correct amount of sebaceous oils needed and clear, healthy pores along the scalp.
Can I use Zen Detox while pregnant?
You should get cleared by your doctor before using Zen Detox. If your doctor gives you the green light, then it's okay to use the product. Zen Detox is a multifunctional product. During pregnancy, many women suffer from swollen feet and ankles as well as from facial acne. Zen Detox, when applied to the legs can help decrease the swelling. When using Zen Detox as a Facial mask, it can help prevent or decrease the severity of acne by absorbing excess bacteria and oil from the face without drying the skin.
