Gorgeous textiles aren’t the best (or only) thing to come out of Morocco. These days, everyone is abuzz about the country’s revered beauty treatments. This exotic shampoo, full of volcanic mud from the Atlas Mountains, purifies hair so thoroughly, you can skip your next shower without any dire consequences. Instead of the long list of artificial ingredients you’ll find in most shampoos, the minimal formula is designed to be nontoxic and gentle enough for children. Available in sweet Clementine and minty Menthe Vanilla.
The major plus of this product is that it is all natural and organic.
Pretty much everything else was a downer. It was very hard to massage into my hair AND to rinse out. My normal-dry hair looked dirty and clumpy. Even heat styling and leave in shampoo didn't help. Not worth the organic wonder-- too crunchy. I'd recommend this for a super granola person who doesn't mind dirty feeling hair but wants all natural ingredients.
I was really looking forward to this shampoo, but it made my hair feel dry and straw like. My hair hasn't had this bad a texture since I was swimming in chlorine every day! It smells nice, and might work well for other people, but it just didn't jive with my hair.2
I tried this because I heard Moroccan oil was good for the hair. Well it paid off great and smooth texture. Great for dry hair4
I ordered this for myself because I was curious about washing my hair with mud and concerned about all the chemicals in regular shampoo. I had tried the no-poo method, but only made it about two weeks before I couldn't take it anymore. I really wanted to love the Mud-Poo. Sadly, this product was not the answer for my hair, but my husband tried it and absolutely loves it. He has fine, thin, oily hair and this makes it feel thicker with more body and he can go longer between washes. So now I regularly order this for him. Both scents are nice, but I prefer the Clemintine.4
I bought the vanilla-mint MudPoo as an alternative to harsh shampoos. I previously had researched going 'no poo' with baking soda and apple cider vinegar but decided I couldn't commit to that lifestyle -- plus, I LOVE buying products with fragrances I like, and baking soda just didn't cut it!
I wanted to find a more natural shampoo (and also decrease the frequency that I needed to shampoo) in an attempt to restore the ph balance on my scalp and help facilitate new hair growth since I have fine, thinning hair (due to heart medication).
I knew going into using this product that it wouldn't foam, would be a bit hard to spread around my scalp, and would make my hair straw-like if I didn't condition, so I enjoyed it for what it was - a between-shampoos product that treats my scalp gently, smells and feels awesome, and actually gives my fine, thin hair VOLUME!
If I want volume, I use the MudPoo the night before and don't condition. If I use the MudPoo the day of an event, I deep condition afterwards. My hair routine has gone from shampooing everyday and getting greasy by the end of the day to the following:
Day 1. Shampoo with no-sulfate shampoo
Day 2. Dry Shampoo
Day 3. Wear hair up
Day 4. Mud Poo
Day 5. Wear hair up
Day 6. Shampoo with no sulfate shampoo
This weekend I noticed new hair growth along my scalp line after following this pattern for about a month.
Since I use this only once a week it is lasting me a long time and is worth it. I will definitely repurchase.
I've been reading everyone else's reviews and I know I shook the bottle enough, but my hair is very long and thick.. maybe it just wasn't the right product for me. It does not lather at all and was very hard to wash out. Even days after, I felt like there was clay in my hair. I actually broke my brush trying to comb it out each day. Not a good product for me.1
I ordered this in the Menthe Vanilla out of sheer curiosity. The first time I used it, I wasn't so sure I'd like it; it leaves a residue and made my hair feel a little gummy. Maybe a hippie whose idea of getting clean is rolling around in the mud and dousing on the patchouli oil would like this, but I'm no hippie... That said, I decided to give it another chance, and I'm glad I did. The mint is very aggressive; my scalp tingled for several minutes after I rinsed out the mud. What you should remember is that this isn't shampoo. Knowing this, the next time I used it, I paid special attention to the way my hair responded. Yes, this leaves a residue, but the coating does leave my hair shiny and incredibly manageable, even after using my straightening iron. And my hair and scalp still felt and looked clean the next day, and the next.4
I decided to try this product because it's supposed to be good for your hair and I love that it's organic. However, if you've never used anything like it before, be prepared to be a little weirded out.
You are supposed to shake the bottle a lot before you pump because it's very watery. It doesn't thicken too much and it looks and feels like muddy, gritty water in your hands. You are also supposed to coat your hair in this stuff, but my hair is very thick and this stuff doesn't lather at all (making it difficult to really coat your hair).
After I used it, my hair felt really heavy, like it had a lot of build up or product still in it. It was hard to brush through (imagine trying to comb through your hair right after coating it with lots of hairspray). It doesn't feel very nice wet, so I decided to blow dry it, despite Birchbox's recommendation not to.
My hair is definitely noticeably different. It looks softer and I used the vanilla mint mud-poo, which was nice and cool and tingly on my scalp. I think I may be a little displeased because I have very oily hair and scalp but I try to wash my hair every other day. I used the mud-poo on my "wash day" (I didn't wash my hair the day before), so it could just be there was a lot of build-up in my hair already.
I think in the future, I will still use this product and give it another chance. But I'll try to use it at night before bed so I don't have to blow dry my hair and I will make sure to use it the day after I wash my hair with regular shampoo instead of 2 days later.
