Anthony Morrocco created something truly unique when he introduced Morrocco Method hair care products to the holistic market. After an impactful struggle with hair loss and scalp damage, he created an all-natural lineup of shampoos, conditioners, and more made using only raw vegan and Paleo ingredients.
It might take a little while to get used to a non-foaming shampoo, but the end result is worth the switch. The Morrocco Method is based on the ideology of achieving full balance and harmony by harnessing the power of the five elements, rather than satisfying a desire for suds. Each shampoo corresponds to one of the five elements in nature, and comes with its own list of benefits.
The apple cider vinegar formula it meant to represent the element of fire. This shampoo is ideal for all hair types, making it a great introduction to all-natural hair care products.
How to Shampoo:
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.
Our shampoos are super concentrated, dilute it 1:1 with water for easier application.
First Wash: Apply shampoo to wet hair, massage lightly to hair and scalp. It won’t lather. Rinse.
Second Wash: Apply shampoo again, massage longer to stimulate blood flow to scalp and hair.
Rinse again. Follow with Morrocco Method Conditioners for added hydration.

Use the apple cider vinegar shampoo as you normally would, ideally alternating with the other elemental shampoos to give your hair a variety of nourishment.
Note that you might have to work a little harder to get the shampoo into your hair, since it won’t suds. Try mixing it with a bit of water right before use to aid in getting those hard-to-reach parts of your scalp. For best results, shampoo twice. Use less conditioner than usual as your hair might get greasy faster.

You shampoo your hair so many times a week you probably never think twice about it. Unfortunately, most commercial brands of shampoo are filled with toxic chemicals that can worsen your health.
The number one toxin in most shampoos is the sulfates, which are responsible for sudsing up your hair into a lather. However, they can do more harm than good. Sulfates easily remove dirt from your hair, but they’re so powerful that they can also strip away your own natural oils, leading to hormonal imbalances and exacerbating current skin issues, like rosacea.
To preserve the shelf life of shampoo, most commercial brands use a class of preservatives called parabens. These toxins accumulate in the human body, and can be found in large amounts in the breast tissue of cancer patients.
Fortunately, Morrocco Method skips all of these toxins in favor of all-natural ingredients that work just as well as synthetic chemicals. While this shampoo won’t foam like normal shampoo does, you can rest assured that the cleansing agents are still doing their job. Raw apple cider vinegar is a natural antibacterial agent that works to remove buildup, helping to restore your natural shine. Since you’ll keep a lot of your natural oils in your hair, you can use much less conditioner than you normally do — or skip the conditioner entirely.
