Morrocco Method Hair Conditioning

Back in 2013, when I began to pull away from conventional household products laden with chemicals, I wanted an all natural shampoo. I tried a few homemade recipes that did not work at all. And then I tried Morrocco Method shampoo, but couldn’t figure out the shampoo-to-water ratio. And I since learned that I wasn’t using nearly enough shampoo each time I washed my hair. I moved to South Africa and couldn’t buy Morrocco Method in any case, so I used Earthsap shampoo and conditioner, purchased from the online shop Faithful to Nature. A year and a half ago, after moving back to the U.S., I gave Morrocco Method a try for a second time, and haven’t looked back.
This past winter, my hair was incredibly tangled and dry on the ends, while my scalp is always prone to oiliness. I've tried Morrocco Method's Floating Lotus Conditioner and the Pearl Essence Creme Rinse. Both increased the oiliness of my scalp, so now I use it strictly on the ends after shampooing. Additionally, I use the Sapphire Volumizer Mist Conditioner & Moisturizer spray after towel drying my hair.
I went for a hair trim on the spring equinox, which helped clear up the tangled ends. But my hair is incredibly fine, lacking volume. So I decided to try the Morrocco Method Neutral Henna, since it’s supposed to condition hair and give some thickness. I had difficulty finding the time to do the henna, since it requires hair to be clean. I only wash my hair every 2-3 days, and was usually heading out the door on those clean hair days. Finally, my hair washing day fell on a Sunday at the end of April. So I washed my hair, towel dried it, applied the henna, wrapped my head in a shower cap and rinsed it out with ease an hour later. After the initial rinse, the only difference I notice is a more beachy texture, which contributes more volume than normal. I thought that the henna would help with tangled ends, but my hair actually seems more dry than before. And after the fact, I noticed that the Morrocco Method website says this about the product: "Please note that [Neutral Henna Hair Dye] can have a slight drying effect on hair that is already prone to drying." I may use the Light Blonde in the future, if I feel my natural color needs a boost. But for now, I'll stick with the Pearl Essence Creme Rinse and Sapphire Volumizer Mist. I'm a big fan of other Morrocco Method products, to be discussed further in the future!
