My Experience with Morrocco Method Products:

I’ve been using Morrocco Method products on my hair for about 1 year now. Before beginning MM products, I had a pretty decent head of hair length-wise, but it was thinner around my temples and didn’t always feel nourished. I also had a dry scalp and dandruff after a few days without washing.

I’m so glad that I made the switch because there’s been a noticeable difference in my hair. One of the biggest differences between Morrocco Method shampoos and others (even natural & organic ones) is that because they are raw and botanical based, they minimally foam.

Though this is an adjustment for some people, it actually helped my dry scalp to have their shampoo perform this way. Also, I hardly ever need much conditioner.

Some Rituals That Helped:

Making sure to shampoo twice (I know, sounds extra, but it’s worth it) makes all the difference.

Using the Mixed Nylon/Boar Bristle Brush in the shower while washing out both the shampoo and conditioner. I noticed that doing this made a big difference in getting the products evenly distributed through hair and then thoroughly rinsed out.

Doing a weekly hair mask with the Zen Detox powder. This is big for the first few weeks of using Morrocco Method products! I use the Zen Detox product and then mix it with Apple Cider Vinegar, leave in for about 10-20 minutes, then rinse out in the shower and shampoo + condition like normal.

-Apply a Scalp Elixir before shampooing. I typically massage it in and let them sit for a few minutes beforehand. This ritual really helps stimulate the hair follicles at the root level.

-Use the Scalp Massager daily. This is as routine to me as brushing my teeth! It’s only takes 30 seconds or so and helps bring blood flow to the scalp and stimulate lymph movement in the head and neck. Doing this is a huge help if you are looking to grow hair.

-Cut hair according to the Lunar Hair Chart. If this idea is new to you, check out more here. I trim/cut my own hair at home and have for about 10 years now. Since my goal is to thicken my hair, I cut on thickening days and alternate that goal with root work days to keep the foundation of my roots healthy and thriving.

My Thoughts:

When it comes to lip balm, I’ve tried some really awesome, organic and simple products. That’s how lip balm should be–not a complicated list of unrecognizable ingredients.

Waxelene was a unique lip balm product for me to try in that it is a spin on petroleum jelly, which I used as a teen for chapped lips and such. I love that waxelene’s ingredient list is clean, containing only: organic soy oil, beeswax, non-gmo vitamin e oil and organic rosemary oil. That’s a pretty great-looking set of ingredients.

Perhaps one of the best things about Waxlene (besides the organic ingredients) is the fact that it can be seen as a unisex product. Many lip balms have fantastic ingredients, but only appeal to women because of their fruity, sweet or tinted nature. Waxelene provides a great option for men, women, boys and girls alike.

I value Waxelene for being a portable, go-to lip balm that can even be used under lip color to keep lips moist and help the lip color apply evenly. It’s hard to beat a product that’s highly versatile, will please the whole family and has excellent, organic ingredients. I’m happy to have tried Waxelene and see more of it in my future.

My Thoughts:

My experience with herbal face food has been interesting. The first time I tried this serum (after cleansing), I distributed about a dime size of the serum onto my face and……WHOA. Major stinging and irritation. I was so confused. Well, I quickly learned a few things:

-I hadn’t read the FAQ section of their site to realize that this stoning sensation can occur.

-The ingredients contain clove oil (which I assume is similar to cinnamon–which leaves the same stinging sensation on the face, due to the fact that it brings blood to the surface of skin and rejuvenates it.)

-You do, indeed, need to shake up the mixture before using it. This will help equally distribute the oils.

So, the initial use was my own fault. I was ill-equipped (information wise) and I think I used too much. Synergies for Health also states that the stinging will be more intense for skin that needs the boost. I didn’t realize my skin needed it that bad–but I’m willing to accept that 🙂

The next few times I used this serum, I shook the bottle, only rubbed a few drops into my fingertips and then applied to my wet facial skin. This time, MUCH better. There is still a slight zing from this serum, but not painful at all. It feels nice and refreshing, actually.

The best part about this serum is the awesomely, entirely organic ingredients list. This stuff is truly pure. Ingredient-wise, this is a dream serum. Performance wise, it’s a dream serum as well. It feels like it helps balance the oil on my skin, and soothes blemishes if I have them. It feels like this serum does a whole lot of good to my skin, sans chemicals and junky ingredients.

I’d recommend this to someone looking for the real deal facial serum. This stuff is potent (and should be used as they suggest), but it performs wonderfully when done right. My skin feels boosted and glowy every time after using this herbal face food.
