Advice from Jes, a LMSW, 4-5 days in on her Lunar Journey: "I don’t know if you’ve seen, but there are research studies that have been done about people who talk to plants—they talk to them nicely, or they talk to them poorly and there’s also research studies where there’s just like a petri dish and they’d have people come through and talk to one petri dish poorly and one petri dish in a loving manner, telling it nice things and the ones that were talked to poorly grew poorly with a bunch of gross bacteria in the petri dish and the ones that were talked to lovingly thrived. So why am I telling you this? I’m on day 4 of my hair detox and my first suggestion or encouragement to anybody starting new: meditate before you come talk to your hair. You’re going to want to say some mean things to your hair and you don’t want that so deep breath and OHMMMM."
Jes is right, at Morrocco Method we know that your health is your wealth, and that includes your mental health! The detox period can feel stressful when your hair isn't doing what you want it to do, or what it normally does. Some people will have harder and longer detoxes than others, but ultimately the reward is fantastic hair. So take a deep breath and let the process happen.
We sent some suggestions to help ease her detox phase, including using the Zen Detox Hair & Scalp Masque weekly for the duration of her detox, and diluting her product more. Morrocco Method shampoos are highly concentrated and should be diluted for the best results.
