In December of 2013 I decided to NOT give up on my natural hair journey. I wanted to give the Morrocco Method products a shot — in hopes that my hair and scalp could be saved. I ordered all 5 of their shampoos, and noticed a difference immediately. I really wanted to do as much as I could to repair the damage that my hair and scalp was in. The more research I did, and the more I educated myself on natural hair care — it became clear to me how important the condition of your scalp is.
As I mentioned in the introduction of my natural hair care journey — through my lifetime of chemical-laden products, processes, and then failed attempts at homemade no-poo solutions my hair and scalp were suffering. My hair was dry and damaged. My scalp was inflamed, itchy, dry and oily at the same time if you can believe it! The shampoos were an excellent start. I immediately noticed a difference in how my scalp felt. However, I knew that I needed something much more restorative.
You’ve Gone Chemical Free…
Morrocco Method offers a line of restoring elixirs that work to normalize sebaceous glands. Each of these elixirs works towards reconstructing, revitalizing, and rejuvenating your hair and scalp. They have three categories of elixirs — a Beginner Series, an Intermediate Series, and an Advanced Series. I knew this was just what I needed and the perfect place to start was the Beginner Series — The Golden & Silver Elixirs.
The Golden & Silver Elixirs are a perfect place to start. They are designed to restore the overall vitality and health of your hair and scalp. When you decide to go chemical-free your sebaceous glands WILL get a little out of whack. Until you decide to go chemical free you have washed your hair every other day to prevent those oils from making your hair look dirty, or weighed down. The secret is — those oils are natural and honestly work as the best conditioner ever. The thing is, when you stop washing with chemicals your sebaceous glands are still used to overworking! Your detox period is the result of these glands attempting to normalize. That’s where the Beginner Series Elixirs can help. They work to get your sebaceous glands on cue — so that you produce just the right amount of oil you need to have beautiful, healthy, soft, shiny hair. Too good to be true? Actually, No! So what is the secret in these little bottles?
The Beginner Series includes both the Silver & the Golden Elixirs — and they work like a team. The key to any great hair or beauty regimen is variety and rotation. The idea is to use them together and reap the most benefit.
This elixir is enhanced with Tibetan crystals that help to deeply cleanse your scalp, and it is the one you would want to start with if you are experiencing a lot of dryness. The Tibetan crystals are liquefied into a crystalline herbal base for this elixir.
My absolute favorite! The Grapeseed Chi Elixir works towards the reconstruction of your hair and scalp. It is the one you would want to start with if you are experiencing excessive oil production. This elixir is made from a combination of the finest essential oils, rare spices, herbs, the essence of Euro grapeseed extract.
These elixirs are particularly helpful for anyone experiencing scalp problems like eczema, candida, psoriasis, or dandruff. Another benefit that these elixirs have to offer — they help with hair loss and hair thinning. I for one have always had fine and thin hair. I figured that was the hair I was born with and that it would never be thick — these elixirs worked for me, and that’s when I realized that they really are something special.
The Results Were Unexpected
I decided to use the Golden & Silver Elixir series because my scalp needed help. I did NOT even consider that I fell into the category of hair thinning — or that these would help me in any other way than to normalize my oil production. I got more than I bargained for. After alternating the gold and silver elixirs for about a month — I noticed dramatic results. It sounds too good to be true, and almost like a magic-no-way-info-mercial type gimmick, but hear me out… After a while of alternating the elixirs — I woke up one morning and went to brush my hair as usual. I literally did a double-take in the mirror and got up close. All along the front of my hairline (which is where you apply the elixir) I had little baby hairs — new hair growth coming in. MORE HAIR!! My hair has increased in thickness — so much so that I can now achieve the “messy bun” that I never could before. I love my hair now.
These elixirs are not cheap — they’re made with extremely high quality ingredients from around the world. And I pay for quality. I pay for what works. Are these elixirs worth their cost? My opinion is YES.
