MooGoo Hair Care FOR THE WIN!

FullSizeRender

Alright everyone, I’m about to get real serious – cus this shampoo and conditioner has completely changed my hair/scalp game. Like…FOR REAL WORKS.

 

I was a bit hesitant to try another hair care product that claimed it was all natural, great for scalp, etc etc…but the reviews I kept seeing, reading and hearing about were just too good! I couldn’t pass it up – and boy, am I glad I didn’t!

 

Moogoo is an Aussie company known for being one of the most environmentally friendly companies out there. They’re incredibly honest about their ingredients, customer care and sustainability. They’re also known for their skin and hair care range – for anyone, really – but especially those with troublesome skin. (I.e. Sensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.)

 

My sensitive skin can be an issue when it comes to my hair care, cus even if it’s organic and has decent ingredients – if it isn’t tackling the areas I need it to (dry, itchy scalp and somewhat dry hair) then it’s just a no go for me and sometimes makes my condition worse! Well, I have completely converted to the Moogoo family! Their Milk ShampooCream Conditioner have both soothed my dry, itchy scalp (and yes, it was even like that in the summer – not just cold, dry months) and I have had zero flakiness! Zero! This shampoo for me, removes all – and I mean ALL – product build-up with just 2 rinses! The end result is my hair and scalp feel and look squeaky clean without the typical stripped-of-any-moisture feeling I’d typically get with other hair care. The moisture retention (without feeling weighted or greasy whatsoever) my hair is left with is amazing! I still sometimes can’t get over how amazing it is, and often chat with my sister about it being a miracle product! (She uses it as well, and raves about it too!)


If you’re into green beauty, and non-toxic hair care..then you know the crap that’s in conventional shampoos and conditioners. Irritants, fragrances, carcinogens and crazy toxins. Yep, even in a “mild” scalp care shampoo. Stay far, far away!

 

So, what Moogoo has done is they’ve utilized the use of many mild and gentle cleansers (in small amounts), to control the micro-flora of the scalp that can cause all of the many scalp problems we experience. It’s pH balanced, and is suitable for adults through babies. They explain why your scalp is having issues, they even list every ingredient on their site so you can research and know what’s up!

My scalp is causing me “ big issues”

“Psoriasis of the Scalp” can sometimes be confused with Seborrheic Dermatitis. Seborrheic Dermatitis will cause an itchy or flaky scalp, but can also spread to the hairline, ears, the eyes and eyebrows or along the side of the nose as well as other areas. It is related to Cradle Cap and is a reaction to the Malassezia yeast which is a normal part of the skin’s micro-flora. Our Milk Shampoo and Conditioner are natural and do not irritate the scalp, and we include Piroctone Olamine. As these are wash off products, the time that they can remain in contact with the skin to help is limited. If the condition is severe, a cream such as our Scalp Cream can be rubbed onto the affected areas. Please see our “We got mail page” to read of other people’s experiences.

Plaque Psoriasis can be much more difficult to control and there are specialized products that may need a prescription from your doctor.

 

Moogoo also have a Scalp Cream that they recommend using prior to washing your hair, if you’re really dry and itchy on the scalp. I applied it at night, (in damp hair) and the next morning washed it out. Not only did it give me immediate soothing relief when I first applied it (and throughout the night), but within 2-3 uses my flakiness and itchiness was completely subdued and gone. Along with the shampoo/conditioner – my hair and head was like new!

 

I cannot rave enough about this hair care, and this company! If you have normal hair, that’s awesome – I still recommend it. If you have coloured hair – get it. If you have dry hair, oily hair, scalp issues, no scalp issues – GET IT. It will make your hair not only feel silky smooth and healthy, but it’s just plain good for your scalp and body. Thank you, Moogoo for your dedication to customers, great ingredients and for creating incredible products! You’ve got a permanent fan.

Sleeping At Last – “Jupiter”. Such a beautiful tune!

 

Let You Hair Down, Tabitha James Kraan Style!

I think haircare is one of the more tricky things to get right when it comes to green beauty. I’ve always known that these organic, toxic-free formulas of shampoo/conditioner and other haircare products were better for my hair, I just wasn’t impressed with the results. I depended on my toxic go-to’s because they appeared to be giving me the effects/look/feel I wanted. So, when I started hearing about a new natural and organic haircare line – in which the word was starting spread like wildfire, I just had to check it out for myself!

 

Tabitha James Kraan has changed the organic haircare game, in the most luxurious way. Her products are gorgeous, natural and organic, completely free from harmful chemicals. The packaging is elegant, polished and the aluminum (I’m assuming) stands out against anything else I’ve seen, making this line instantly cool, luxurious and recognizable. The products were developed by organic hair guru Tabitha James Kraan who has an internationally renowned hair salon in the Cotswolds, in England. It had always been a vision of Tabitha’s to create her own collection of organic products, and for the last three years, her dream has gradually taken on reality as she’s worked with her lab, pushing the boundaries of hair alchemy, to create a range of products that meets her exacting standards.


These products are unlike any other luxury haircare products – in fact, I can’t remember the last time I found organic haircare products this luxurious! I also can’t get over the scent of these products! They have the most exquisite aromas. Especially the two pictured above!

 

Organic Dry Shampoo for Darker Hair – I love me some dry shampoo! I mean, I probably have like a sixth sense for that word…I perk up like “Dry Shampoo?! I need to try it!”  Typically, I stray away from the loose powder version of dry shampoos, buttttt, having read amazing reviews about this one, I decided why not!? Plus, the ingredients are 90% organic! So, that was comforting, and appealing to me.

 

This dry shampoo does exactly what you’d want it to do, with a really pretty, subtle scent.  I have to say, it creates great texture, however it can get a bit sandy-like after a few uses. Nothing terrible, just a bit more gritty than your usual dry shampoo. I can deal. There are so many other pros that outweigh that one tiny con! Oh, and the bottle will probably last you forever (it’s 6.7 fl.oz) depending how much you use it – which you really don’t need a ton to get the job done.

 

Organic Hair Perfume – So, if you haven’t noticed by now, TJK products aren’t the cheapest. I suppose that comes with the territory of luxury haircare, with organic, amazing, high quality ingredients. This Hair Perfume is (oddly) the most expensive product in the line at £49 (about $76 USD). Essentially, this perfume is a mixture of floral waters…how the heck was this supposed to impress me – or work!? Well, just as I’ve discovered with all of TJK‘s products, it works, really well…annnnd this has to be one of my favourite products!

 

You know those days where you know you need to wash your hair, but just end up putting it up in a bun? Or, in my case (short hair), a low pony-tail or messy pinned back hairdo? This perfume works WONDERS. Not only does it leave my hair smelling divine (seriously, unreal smelling) A few spritzes of this all over, followed by a gentle brush brings life to my hair! The packaging of this product is awesome, it has a spritzer which is perrrrrfect. It disperses a fine mist (which in turn makes you feel like you’re covering most of your head equally) rather than squirting the product out and feeling like you’re wasting precious drops of (very expensive) hair perfume. I recently learned that spraying normal perfume in your hair can damage it due to the alcohol content, (don’t worry – there’s NONE in this!) so a specialized hair perfume – such as this one – full of amazing organic oils is a much better option.


Amber Rose Hair Cleanser – Correct cleansing is the foundation to any good hair care routine. I mean, duh..that’s what we’re essentially wanting right? Clean hair. Well, the TJK Amber Rose Hair Cleanser will not only clean your hair, but it’ll restore it, AND revive your scalp so it’s healthy and nourished. This wonderful, certified organic formulation of aloe vera, oatmilk, argan oil, coconut oil, rosehip oil, essential oils of rose, patchouli, neroli, chamomile and ylang ylang, will nourish and protect your hair while giving you incredible shine and body.

 

4-In-1 Conditioner – My second favourite product from TJK! This is a multi-usage ‘miracle’ conditioner which can be used traditionally, as a leave-in treatment, a nourishing scalp cream and a texturise & curl styling cream. I know…amazing, right? Who wouldn’t want a 4-in-1 product that does all of these things?! Keeps it simple.

 

This 4-in-1 Conditioner moisturizes perfectly without being heavy. That is one of my biggest pet peeves, a conditioner that (even after it’s rinsed out) feels heavy, greasy and in turn leaves your hair looking and feeling dirty. I love that its lightness makes it appropriate as a leave-in treatment – something I’d NEVER do before because of those above-mentioned reasons. I love the ingredients it contains! A beautiful blend of certified organic rosehip oil, argan oil, coconut oil and essential oils of neroli, tangerine, bergamot and myrrh. Ooh, la la!
