Pine Shale Shampoo is a non-foaming formulation of high-quality ancient shale oil that works to nourish and heal the hair and scalp. This natural shampoo uses the large reservoirs of rich shale oil underneath the Earth's surface (from the decomposition of large forests of ferns and evergreens millions of years ago) to thoroughly clean the hair and scalp. This sulfate-free shampoo is particularly helpful for people with dandruff, itchy scalps, and inflammation as it is the most restorative of all our shampoos.
Representing the element of Air, this natural shampoo is raw and filled with the purest, hand-picked ingredients, making it great for normal to dry hair and scalp. For best results, we suggest rotating all 5 shampoos.
All of our natural shampoos are raw, vegan, paleo, sulfate-free, gluten-free and non-foaming.
1. Why Do I Need To Shampoo Twice?
A perfect shampooing is achieved in two parts. The first shampooing cleanses hair and scalp of dirt, dead cells, and dust, which would otherwise be massaged back into the hair, scalp and follicle openings if only shampooed once. This clogging debris could retard new hair growth and severely damage the oil glands, upsetting the natural fall-out and reproductive cycles of your hair.
The second shampooing and massage of your clean hair and scalp stimulates the flow of blood to the scalp and widens the hair follicles, allowing the blood vessels to feed each root and bulb, nourishing the entire follicle and activating the sebaceous glands. This sets the proper distribution of your own natural oils to the entire scalp and hair shafts in motion. A natural coating of oil is vital to the maintenance of a healthy scalp and hair. It keeps the outer layer of hair lubricated and prevents drying.
As soon as you stop using synthetic shampoos and hair products, your body, may start going through a Detox Period. This is the process whereby your body attempts to push out any toxins, contaminants, or cleaners left over on your hair and scalp. Our shampoos lift and, with the help of water, flush out what your body wants to get rid off.
2. Since There Isn't Any Foam, How DO I Get The Shampoo Through My Hair?
Morrocco Method Shampoos are highly concentrated and it is much easier to spread the shampoo over your scalp and hair if you dilute it in a smaller bottle with 50% shampoo and 50% high quality filtered water. Only add the water right before you plan to use the shampoos as we do not use any synthetic preservatives. Water may invite mold growth, especially in a humid environment, like a shower. Then apply the mixture directly onto your scalp. If you have very thick or curly hair separate the hair with your fingers so that the shampoo goes straight onto your scalp. This way your scalp is able to absorb the raw nutrients from the shampoos. Plus, it's the perfect time for a scalp massage.
Make sure not to add water until directly before you plan to use the shampoos as we do not use any stronger synthetic preservatives. Water is an excellent way to ensure mold growth, especially in a humid environment, like a shower.
3. I have Some Allergies, How can I be Sure MM Is Safe For Me?
Our products are created with allergy sensitivities in mind, and contain absolutely no synthetic chemicals. However, if you have a plant allergy, please read the ingredients listed on each product page before purchasing.
4. How Much Shampoo/Conditioner Do I Need To Wash My Haie?
For shoulder length hair, we recommend a quarter size dollop of either the shampoos or wash out conditioners, Pearl Essence & Floating Lotus. For shorter hair, you may use a dime-sized amount. Because our products have no lathering agent, SLS, in them, it may be strange and different at first when you are trying to wash your hair with them. If mixed with a little water beforehand using a 50:50 ratio it may be easier to apply directly onto the scalp and to spread through the hair. A spray or applicator bottle is a nice alternative in this case as you may target specific areas around your scalp and hair.
5. How Often Should I Rotate The Shampoos?
Ideally you rotate all 5 MM Shampoos each time you wash your hair, however often this may be. Typically, because of Detox, we see clients shampooing every day in the beginning and then every other day, and so on as your body frees itself of what it no longer needs.
Unlike traditional shampoos, which strip your hair of its necessary oil film, our shampoos will keep the natural eco-system of your hair intact, so washing every day is OK. Just make sure to always listen to your hair and observe how it is doing.

Perfect shampooing requires washing twice. The first wash loosens dust, dead skin cells, and excess oils from the hair and scalp while flushing most of it from your hair. The second wash allows the ingredients of the shampoo to reach the scalp, and to nourish the hair using a longer scalp massage.
