(Raw, Vegan, Organic, Earth Element)
5 Elements Line

For all hair and scalp types. This rich mixture of organic essential oils, French clays, and botanical proteins has an algae-seaweed base that rejuvenates while detoxifying both hair and scalp. It acts as a conditioning tonic for fuller, thicker hair. Drawing from all elements, Earth Essence is the most balancing of our shampoos.

The Earth Essence Shampoo contains ingredients from the very foundation of earth: clay and plant oils. We combine into a rich mixture organic essential oils with rare French clay which is particularly high in magnesium, dolomite and silica. Because clay has a negative electrical charge, it attracts toxins, all of which have a positive charge.

The botanicals in this shampoo act as a conditioning tonic, leaving fuller, thicker hair.

the synergy of elements

The earth element is actually a synergistic combining of the four other elements: the earth receives its vital energies from the fiery sun, air, sky and water.

As such, this is the most balancing of the shampoos.

Addresses hair loss and scalp irritability caused by alopecia, candida, psoriasis, and lupus. Highly recommended for chemically sensitive individuals, vegans, and all who seek raw and natural remedies that use marine and botanical sources. We have seen marked improvement in thinning and hair loss for scores of clients over decades of observation. Individual results may vary. Consult a doctor before beginning any new regimen.

Important: You will not find the shampoos will not lather up with suds as other shampoos do. They do not have synthetic foamers or boosters, detergents. The product may take some getting used to and the more you use it the better your hair should feel. It is important to rotate the use of each shampoo as stated above, to avoid dryness and experience the full effects.

about detoxing

Morrocco Method products are 100% plant-, botanical-, and marine-based products with natural smells and no foaming. You will detox as you use our products so expect a possible detoxing period of from 3 to 7 days to strip off the residues, wax build ups, and old chemicals and for toxins to be removed. This will cause drying of hair, matting, and dullness. But do not be alarmed. These effects are a sign that your old products were very toxic and that your hair and scalp are experiencing detoxing. When this period is over, your hair will immediately be healthier, more radiant and managable, and most of all, will be restored back to natural hair follicles. Thus continues your journey with Morroco Method for the most luxurious hair you have ever seen.

Shampoo Information

Selecting the Proper Shampoo

While there are no hard and fast rules for shampooing your hair, one thing is certain: proper scalp hygiene is as critical to luxurious hair as oral hygiene is to healthy teeth. Your scalp is like the soil in a garden. If kept clean, uncontaminated and nourished with nutrients for proper blood circulation, the hair growing in it will flourish and thrive.

First and foremost is the matter of choosing shampoos that satisfy all these requirements: highest quality natural ingredients, totally organic, non-detergent and containing no artificial colors or scents. Many commercial shampoos on the market—even those claiming to be “natural”— contain artificial colors, perfumes and detergents that dry and damage hair, clogging follicle openings rather than cleansing your scalp.

Detergents and color additives leave harmful coatings on the hair. Synthetic scents dry out hair, damaging the shafts by making them overly brittle. The scalp becomes plugged up, disturbing its natural pH balance. Dandruff, itchiness, premature thinning and significant, eventual hair loss are the undesirable results.

In addition to harsh chemicals, shampoos containing such ingredients as berries, tomatoes, guava, etc. are wisely avoided. You need an effective natural shampoo for your hair, not a fruit salad! However enticingly “organic” they may sound, these not-so-naturally derived fruit and vegetable ingredients tend to plug up pores, dry out hair and disturb pH balance, which damages the natural texture of your hair.

Contrary to ‘conventional wisdom,’ it is not necessary to purchase special formulas for dry, normal or oily hair. In fact, these supposedly special-purpose shampoos contain even more harmful, toxic ingredients.

MORROCCO METHOD SHAMPOOS balance your scalp and hair chemistry to eliminate excessive oiliness or extremely dry hair.

When selecting a shampoo, trust your nose! If the shampoo has no synthetic scent and smells wholesome and appealing instead, it is very likely a good shampoo for you. The ‘smell test’ is highly reliable and individualized. Each of us has a different chemical balance that changes with circumstance and age. There is no single shampoo that can be recommended indefinitely for everyone.

Your shampooing regimen should ideally contain three or more organic shampoos that are rotated regularly. Over a period of time, scalp and hair can become resistant/ immune to a single shampoo, upsetting alkaline pH balance. Regularly alternating shampoos helps your hair and scalp stay properly receptive to thorough cleansing and nourishing every time.

MORROCCO METHOD SHAMPOOS are based on the principles of rotation and totally natural methods of caring for your hair. We have developed five shampoos, formulated according to the five elements which constitute, in varying degrees, the essence of every living thing in the universe: Air, Earth, Fire Water and Ether. These Elemental Shampoos contain only the finest organic ingredients derived from all over the world.

MORROCCO METHOD SHAMPOOS (and body wash products) harness the power of nature’s most potent herbs, oils and minerals; they are formulated, blended and bottled according to the 13 Moon Lunar Astrology Cycle to maximize their vitality.

Although all of our shampoos cleanse, detoxify, nourish and stimulate blood flow to hair and scalp, each one delivers a particular treatment:

  • Air Essence nourishes and heals
  • Earth Essence detoxifies
  • Fire Essence stimulates blood flow
  • Sea/ Water Essence cleanses
  • Heavenly Chi energizes and conditions

When alternated regularly, these five Elemental Shampoos provide the finest, most effective holistic hair care treatment in the world.

When to Shampoo

Numerous conflicting views on the subject of shampooing have many people thoroughly confused. While some theories advise shampooing every day, others insist that cleansing daily dries and damages the hair. Fortunately it is not as complicated as it may seem. A simple, common sense rule to follow is: Observe your hair and decide for yourself how often you need to shampoo. For many people, shampooing every other day maintains a healthy balance of scalp and hair.

On the other hand, people whose brushing habits are correct and consistent have often found they can easily extend shampooing to every three or four days. Any of these regimens can be effective for you. As long as your new growth of hair is maintaining its luster, health and vitality, the cleansing schedule you are following is right for you.

How to Shampoo

At first glance, recommendations that we always lather up twice sound like a gimmick to sell more shampoo. But there is actual value in this advice. Perfect shampooing has two parts: The first is loosening up debris to free the hair and scalp of dirt and dead cells. Since you might massage these unwanted microbes back into follicle openings if you shampooed only once, you are well advised to do a second shampoo. This ensures that no contaminants will retard new hair growth, damage oil glands or upset the natural fall-out and reproductive cycles of your hair. Instead, the bad stuff all goes down the drain!

The second shampooing (with massage of your clean head) also stimulates blood flow to the scalp and opens follicles, allowing nourishment for each root, bulb and hair shaft. When every follicle is adequately nourished and each sebaceous oil gland is properly activated, your own natural oils are distributed to lubricate the entire scalp and all hair shafts. A natural coating of oil is vital to the healthy maintenance of scalp and hair. It keeps the outer layer of hair moisturized and prevents drying.

Step One: Wet your hair and apply shampoo to your scalp. Massage lightly into hair and scalp, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Step Two: After rinsing, take a bit more shampoo and massage it gently into clean hair and scalp. Rinse out carefully until no shampoo remains and finish with cool water. Towel dry. Now you are ready to brush and style.


Are any of these shampoos good for pets?

Yes, we have clients all over the world who shampoo their pets and animals with all 4 shampoos. While many products claim to be natural and pure for animals, it is quite amazing how many chemicals are in your pets' cleansing agents. Please read labels. SLS is dominant in almost all pet cleansers. We have testimonials from across the globe from many happy customers just like you, using our shampoos on their horses, dogs, cats, and other animals.

Are your shampoos color-safe?

All our Morrocco Method products are 100% color-safe!

Which shampoos are good to remove make-up?

We get e-mail from women all over the world who use the Sea and Earth Shampoos for removing make-up and exfoliants.

Which shampoos are good for general hand wash?

All four shampoos are excellent for daily hand washing and will not dry nor wrinkle skin. Alternate and see how gentle natural soaps really are on one's hands.

What is the difference between shale and tar?

Coal tar is a petroleum product and very damaging to one's all around good health not to be used on the body, while shale is a rich natural deposit of decomposed trees. Millions of years ago, large forests of ferns and evergreens decomposed and formed large reservoirs underneath the earth surface of very rich shale. We get our shale from Germany in a natural state which is rich in various rare trace minerals. These trace minerals are healing in varying degrees for the scalp and hair alike. This is a cure all for a multitude of scalp problems, plus a general radiant effect on the hair itself giving it new life force and brilliance. There is no comparison between tar and shale. And one should avoid all products with tar/coal tar in its ingredients.

your shampoo may be hazardous to your health

How toxic is your shampoo? More than you might think! That bottle which promises you thick, luxurious lather and beautiful bubbles may not only be damaging your hair, but its ingredients could also lead to diseases, hair thinning and loss, and even scalp damage.

The culprits behind the dangers in most shampoos are surfactants called Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) and related compounds. SLS is possibly the most dangerous ingredient a consumer can find in most shampoos. So potent is SLS, studies have linked it to serious skin and scalp irritation and disease, hair loss and damage and the ability of the chemical to create nitrate compounds which have been linked to cancer and cell damage.

SLS is often disguised by a variety of chemical names such as diethanolime) (DEA, triethanolamine (TEA) and monoethanolamine (MEA). All are common in almost all shampoos. These ingredients, plus other equally dangerous cousins to SLS, such as Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosucinate are made by separating Lauric acid from coconut oil and treating with sulfuric acid, or by making lauric acid synthetically, or Lauamide MEA, Cocamide DEA, Cocamide MEA, made from Lauric acid and ammonia. Even hair care products that label themselves as "natural" may contain these potentially fatal ingredients.

Sodium Laurel Sulfate. Three words that every consumer of hair care products should be aware of and know what they mean. Read your shampoo's label and you'll probably find it contains Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS), or one of its derivatives, such as Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). DEA, TEA or MEA. It is a chemically toxic surfactant, which means it is a wetting and foaming agent. The purpose of SLS is to lower the surface tension in the water, allowing the shampoo to spread out more easily and to penetrate when it is applied to the hair. Additionally, since manufacturers believe that consumers equate lots of suds with cleaning strength, SLS gives a high level of foaming power to the product. It is a chemical ingredient very similar to liquid dishwashing soap. In fact, traditionally, it was used in industrial factories as a compound to degrease engines. And consumers should be aware that compounds found in SLS are hazardous. In "Dangerous Beauty" by Mark Fearer, it is revealed that "... in tests, animals that were exposed to SLS experienced eye damage, along with depression, labored breathing, diarrhea, severe skin irritation, corrosion and death."

The American College of Toxicology states that SLS and its cousin Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) can cause malformation in children's eyes. Other research indicates SLS may harm the immune system, especially within the skin. Cosmetic Science reports that the detergent action of SLS may damage the derma's cellular ability to maintain moisture. This is why there are many reports of dryness, roughness and redness and brittle skin by users of shampoos that contain this harmful ingredient. So potent a chemical is SLS, scientists in Japan have used SLS as a laboratory agent to deliberately cause mutations in test tube bacteria, changing the genetic information found in the bacteria's DNA.

Despite the lather, products containing SLS does not mean one is cleaning the hair in a healthy fashion. The cleaning power is overwhelming, stripping the hair. This is why people often use a conditioner after shampooing with SLS, in order to put "manageability" back. And, usually, the conditioner contains more chemicals, creating a viscous cycle guaranteed to result in dry, brittle, lifeless hair and damage to the skin, scalp and hair.

SLS does more than strip the hair of its natural oils. It removes beneficial bacteria that are essential to maintaining a healthy scalp and head of hair. Once the "good" bacteria have been vanquished, harmful germs have an open playing field, resulting in rashes, hair loss and allergic reactions.

A typical shampoo contains about 50% sodium laurel sulfate, some sodium sterate and about 40% water. In addition to this brew, manufactures may add a baffling array of ingredients that read like a chemistry book. Check the label on many shampoos and any one of the following may be listed: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, MEA, DEA, TEA Laurel Sulfate, Cocomide or coconut oil. All of these compounds are commonly used surfactants related to SLS and have the same potential health dangers.

DEA and MEA are often "neutralized" in the manufacturing process. Consumers can tell if they are being exposed to these harmful compounds when names like Cocamide DEA or MEA or Lauramide DEA are listed on the label. These chemicals are capable of disrupting human hormones and may form cancer-causing nitrates. Dr. Samuel Epstien, Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Illinois has said, "repeated skin applications of DEA based detergents resulted in a major increase in the incidence of two cancers-liver and kidney cancers."

The health evidence against SLS and related compounds grows every day. Reports in the mainstream press and scientific journals increasingly sound alarms about the damages to which these chemicals are linked. A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients by Ruth Winters states that "shampoos are among the most frequently cited complaints to the FDA. Reports include eye irritation, scalp irritation, tangled hair, swelling of hands, face and arms, and split and frizzy hair."

In a November, 1998 report in the Wall Street Journal, a study linked SLS to cataracts and nitrate absorption. During the manufacturing process, SLS comes into contact with other chemical compounds, most notably triethanolamine (TEA) and N-nitrosodiethanolamine (NDELA). This interaction creates nitrate compounds, which can enter the body.

Chemical absorption by the skin is particularly acute with shampoos. Our skin is not a uniform barrier. Hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands are minute holes in the derma layer. Investigations by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee found that structural factors of the skin, such as hairiness, influence what chemicals may be absorbed into our bodies. SLS was found to increase the rate of absorption as it reacts with the chemicals, preservatives and dyes found in many hair care products. They are easily absorbed through the scalp and skin and can accumulate over time in tissue and organs, such as the brain, causing chronic toxic effects and can stay in the body for up to seven days.

Unquestionably , SLS is the most damaging ingredient found in most shampoos. It is the standard compound used in scientific testing labs as a skin irritant. Industrially, SLS is used to strip machinery of grease and is the cleaning agent found in car wash detergents. When added to hair care products, SLS and its destructive twin, SLES, have the potential to cause chronic skin irritation and strip the hair of beneficial oils and bacteria. This damage can lead to thinning hair and noticeable hair loss.

Shampoo makers are beholden to SLS because they believe the consumer wants sudsing action and, more importantly, because it is a very cheap ingredient. With almost half of a shampoo's weight comprised of SLS, manufacturers are reaping huge profits at the consumer's expense in the pocketbook as well as risking the long-term health of the user. It behooves anyone purchasing hair care products to be an educated buyer. Always check the label. Read the ingredients. Be aware. Ingredients such as SLS not only can cause damage to hair, but to one's long term health, as well.
