Golden Crystal Elixir

Morrocco Method Golden Crystal Elixir is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6, and is perfect to help balance a dry or flaky scalp.


Our favorite ingredient: Sesame seed oil - Derived from sesame seeds, it's one of the oldest oils used by mankind. Sesame oil can be used to combat premature grays due to its hair-darkening qualities, and can treat scalp conditions like dandruff by being both deeply moisturizing and antibacterial to keep dryness, fungal, and bacterial infections at bay.


Directions for use

Our specialty elixirs are restorative hair oils that address scalp health issues and encourage new hair growth. The hair oils are scalp treatments, and not meant to be applied to all of your hair at once; a little goes a long way.

Restoring scalp oil elixirs should be applied 2-4 hours before you shower, or 1-3 hours before bed time for a more intense overnight treatment. Make sure to cover your pillow or use a nightcap to protect against oil staining if you are leaving the elixir in your hair overnight.

To apply the oil, start with a scalp massage using your fingertips or our Scalp Massager and Invigorator.  After your massage, shake the bottle and then dispense a small amount (1-2 pumps) on your fingertips and rub them together. Start at the hairline and work your way in toward the crown of your head, paying special attention to problem areas.

Use your boar bristle brush to brush the scalp oil from root to tip before your shower, or when you wake up the next day for extra moisturizing benefits for the rest of your hair.

Use this elixir daily for one week, and then let your scalp rest the following week. Your rest week is the perfect time to do a Zen Detox Hair and Scalp Masque treatment.

Repeat the schedule of one week on/one week off until the elixir is gone.

In conjunction with other elixirs: Follow the same steps as above, switching to the next elixir you are using following your rest week. Continue rotating elixirs during your "on" weeks until the elixirs are gone.

Golden Crystal Elixir goes well with:
Silver Grapeseed Elixir
Shop the Gold & Silver Elixir Set

Use as a series with the Silver Grapeseed Elixir:
If your scalp tends to be oily, start with the Silver Grapeseed Elixir. If it tends to be more dry, then start with the Golden Crystal Elixir.

Week 1: Use either the gold or silver elixir
Week 2: Rest/Zen Detox treatment
Week 3: Use the other elixir in the set
Week 4: Rest/Zen Detox treatment

Repeat until the elixirs are gone.

Use individually:
For oily hair, use the Silver Grapeseed elixir alone following the same one week on/one week off routine until your scalp has normalized.

For dry hair/dandruff, use the Golden Crystal elixir alone following the same one week on/one week off protocol until the elixir is gone or your scalp has normalized.

In conjunction with the lunar hair chart: Best used in the spring and summer following the "beautify" goal. 

Normally, you only need a couple drops of elixir at a time, but in this case, use a cotton ball to apply the elixir generously to your scalp right before you are about to do or receive your lunar haircut—this much elixir should only be used with the Lunar Cut.

The elixir needs to be in your hair for at least 24 hours, so do not shampoo after your haircut. Let it settle in overnight. If you have the luxury of allowing your hair to remain oily, try keeping it in for 48 hours for the ultimate growth boost!
