A Note to First Time Users of MM Henna, 100% Natural Hair Color

100% Natural Hair Color

100% Natural Hair Color

For your first application, we suggest applying a lighter shade of your desired color. Morrocco Method Henna only coats the hair—it does not penetrate the hair follicle like chemical dyes. So when using henna, you can always go darker, but not lighter. Now, if you wish to go darker, wait another 72 hours (so the henna can fully saturate and coat your hair). The darker henna shade can adhere to the coating from the previous application. Repeat the process a third time with your desired (darker) shade. For example, if you wish to color your hair medium brown, we would suggest using a mixture that is half medium brown and half light brown for your first application. Then, you can add more medium brown and less light brown to gradually go darker.

Zen Detox—A Deeper Way to Detoxify Your Crowning Glory

Detoxing as described above is a normal, healthy, everyday way in which your body casts off what it cannot use or does not need. But depending how far down the road you have gone eating poorly and using toxic body and hair products, a switch over to healthier habits and products might not be enough to do the job alone. You’ll need to go a bit deeper and amp up your detoxing efforts with a more rigorous and powerful detox plan. As one of my passions is Ayurveda, I would like to further explain these points from an Ayurvedic point of view.

Author Robert Sachs, expert in the deep healing tradition of Tibetan Ayurveda, explains that there are four levels of healing in this powerful version of traditional Ayurveda. These levels have to do with greater and lesser levels of how to address any physical, mental, or emotional condition we face. Just like I have outlined above, Sachs explains that the first and most important level of treatment has to do with lifestyle changes: proper diet, exercise, relaxation, and hygiene. If we make the effort to live a lifestyle based on the five elements, 95% of all of our problems would just go away! It’s as simple and easy as that.

So for our hair, the proper nutrition we ingest, the proper products we cleanse it with, and the various “exercise” we give it and our scalp by massaging and brushing can do quite a lot to return our Crowning Glory to its natural, vibrant, luxurious state. Conversely, if we eat processed and toxic foods, and lather all kinds of poisonous chemicals onto our heads, why wouldn’t we expect our hair to thin, frizz, develop split ends, and look dull and lifeless?

When these conditions occur, returning to proper diet and using all-natural, organic hair care products daily won’t work alone. Years of abuse have taken their toll. We cannot expect quick or overnight results. This is where a deeper level of detoxification, the second level Tibetan Ayurvedic healing comes in. And this more rigorous detoxification is the deeper work that is needed in our HairRevolution if we are to ever regain the vibrant, lustrous head of hair and scalp we all can achieve.

There are a number of books on nutrition that will convince you to change your diet in the direction I suggest at the start of this chapter. My suggestion is that you look on books that espouse a more vegan or vegetarian diet. Seek out books on raw food, Macrobiotic, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diets and Ayurveda. All of these systems have daily nourishment and detox programs when it comes to your eating habits.

As my expertise is your crowning glory, I wish to focus on the products that you need to remove from your hair and scalp and the product we recommend to do the job: our ZEN DETOX HAIR and SCALP SPA THERAPY.

There are a wide variety of toxins we are exposed to every day, including environmental and industrial pollution, and water and air full of chemicals. Approximately 70,000 chemicals are being used in commercial production and consumer products in the United States. Medical researcher Alan Levine, M.D. believes that “the vast increase of chemicals in our environment, foods and medicines has greatly altered the body’s ability to rid itself of toxins.” All of these chemicals and pollutants are stored in the body, in our glands and immune system. The role of the immune system is immense—from fighting viruses and germs, to coping with debilitating autoimmune diseases. It provides for our first, second, and third lines of defense against everyday germs, viruses, and bacteria. If, over a period of time, we cannot naturally eliminate these toxins in the normal way that we would otherwise, our bodies accumulate toxic build-up. Our immune system will not function properly and we may succumb to any number of nasty diseases. And while it is true that immunity can decline with age, more often the weakening of the immune system is due to long term exposure to toxins.

In my many years working with Chinese and Ayurvedic specialists, I observed how herbs, spices, and healing clays were ingested to aid in systemic detoxification. And, in the cosmetic industry, there are a huge number of masks that are intended to unclog pores and revitalize skin. Applying the same logic, I set out to create a hair and scalp detoxification program. Using various natural clays, herbs and spices, and the ZEN DETOX HAIR and SCALP SPA THERAPY in my HairRevolution, I have successfully detoxified the hair, scalp, and oil glands of hundreds of thousands of clients from accumulated chemicals from synthetic shampoos, conditioners, styling products, coloring agents, perms, hair relaxers, and Sodium Laurel Sulfate (a common and very dangerous ingredient in many shampoos and styling products). I have even proven that it is possible to assist in detoxing the body of Mercury, which is now associated with over two hundred diseases, including neurological and behavioral disruptions such as depression, allergies, food sensitivities, and chronic illness.

ZEN DETOX is formulated to benefit people of all ages and hair of all conditions. It supports hair growth by detoxing the hair follicles/root, oil glands, and scalp. In the scheme of the Five Elements, ZEN DETOX is connected to the EARTH Element. It has two jobs: to get the toxins OUT and to BUILD the immune system.

ZEN DETOX has a unique multi-purpose formula that has been created to assist in removing the causes of diseases, not just the symptoms. It features specially selected clays (chosen out of hundreds that are available) for the most consistent results, imported Volcanic Ash, and our highly effective and thoroughly tested synergistic formula of spices and herbs. Totally effective and yet a very gentle, ZEN DETOX lifts heavy metals and other toxins from the scalp and oil glands and cleanses hair follicles.

For prevention of disease, and for those with a compromised immune system, ZEN DETOX is an ideal product to include safely with other clay therapies that you may be using internally or externally to assist greatly in detoxifying chemical residuals.

ZEN DETOX is also wonderful for people who live in hard water locations, as well as swimmers or gym members who use chlorinated pools and incur a toxic build-up of water treatment chemicals.

OUR RECOMMENDED ZEN SPA DETOX RITUAL

Our standard ZEN DETOX 4-ounce jar will be good for three treatments for normal length hair. For LONG, THICK hair, use half the package per treatment for a two week treatment.Although in the latter part of this chapter I have been talking about a deeper level of detoxification, we must bear in mind that NONE of us live in an organic world. Even if we live in some ideal remote spot, our air and water have been compromised by chemicals around the world. Thus, adding a bit more detoxification to our daily regimen is an excellent idea.

That is why I recommend using ZEN DETOX for everyone. Once every season, use ZEN DETOX once each week over the course of three weeks. The week before, the week of, and the week after the spring equinox, summer solstice, autumnal equinox, and winter solstice are ideal. You will get maximum results from ZEN DETOX if you follow this schedule each season. Four full treatments per year should be sufficient in detoxing the hair follicles, scalp, and sebaceous glands, and clarifying the brain.

STEP ONE:

For best results, use a wooden spoon and a wooden or glass bowl for mixing. Take 1/3 of the packet and slowly add natural water until the consistency becomes thick and creamy. As all clays are alive, this will let the clays recharge their life force. If you have mixed more than you need, allow the remaining product to dry out, then add water when you are ready for the next treatment. It will keep indefinitely at room temperature—do not refrigerate!STEP TWO:

Prepare a hot bath, light candles, play meditation music, and simply relax and soak.STEP THREE:

While your hair is DRY, in the bath or before entering, massage the formula into the scalp and hair, using the entire amount. Although formulated specifically for the scalp, this holistic product can safely be in contact with the skin of your face, neck, and hands. Be careful around the eye area, which is very sensitive and could get too dry. Leave the detox formula on for 15 to 60 minutes, depending on how you adjust.STEP FOUR:

When you’re ready, wet your hands and massage deep into the hair and scalp, loosening the hair and allowing air to flow through the clay and helping the healing ingredients penetrate deeper into the hair follicles and scalp.PLEASE NOTE: For your first treatment, leave ZEN DETOX on for 15 to 30 minutes. The next week, try 30 to 45 minutes. On the third week, try 30 to 60 minutes. As the formula lifts the toxins from your hair and scalp and reaches the blood circulating below the skin, more toxins that are deeper in your hair and scalp can begin to be lifted away, resulting in a pleasant sensation of increased clarity in the brain.STEP FIVE:

When your time is up, simply submerge your head into the bath water and massage the formula out of your hair and scalp. You may wish to shower before leaving the tub. A simple rinse out is all that’s necessary; you won’t need to shampoo your hair after the treatment.Using the detox in the evening, just before going to bed, can be the most relaxing part of your day, sending you into a restful sleep.

A Popular Henna Application Misconception

A popular misconception is that applying henna will give your hair either an orange or reddish tint. This is not true. Morrocco Method Natural Henna consists of 7 colors, all derived from three basic shades: red, black, and neutral (colorless). It is the combination of these three shades, in varying proportions, that creates the dazzling array of Morrocco Method Int’l Natural Henna. Each shade will look slightly different on each individual. Our henna works subtly and will bring out the best in your natural hair color. Of course, for the adventurous, each color can be mixed with others to create new shades. Feel free to experiment until you find the perfect combination and shade for you and your crowning glory! The 7 shades of Morrocco Method Int’l Henna that we have created for you are: Neutral (colorless) Red, Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Brown, and Marigold Blonde

HairRevolution and Detoxing

 

With these factors in place, we return now to what we ingest through our skin and hair. To elaborate more fully, anything that we apply to our skin and scalp will be ingested through our pores, enter our blood stream, and travel throughout the entire body. Our body and hair care products can, therefore, also aid in detoxing by not only adding healthy nutrients for our body to ingest, but also by cleansing and keep our skin and hair healthy so that they can also aid in the overall detox process. We guarantee that ALL of our Morrocco Method Int’l products do just that!

On the other hand, when you use hair and skin care products like shampoos, styling gels, cosmetics, and deodorants that contain manufactured chemicals, or put your hair through damaging chemical processes like dying, bleaching, perming, or straightening, a huge amount of toxins settle into your glands over time. And when our bodies can no longer naturally detox these chemicals, toxins, and wastes from our glands, the build-up will lead to stagnation, putrification, and eventually life-threatening diseases, as carcinogens and other toxic waste compromise your immune system and causes collapses in health. Now that you know how important it is to detox and avoid toxic chemicals as much as you can, I invite you to take a look at how Morrocco Method International products work to keep your system cleansed and healthy.

The Breathing Exercise

The formula is a ratio of 1 count breathing in, 4 counts for holding, and 2 counts for breathing out. For example, you can breathe in for a count of 5, hold the breath for a count of 20, and then breathe out for a count of 10. If this is done three times per day, this exercise alone is scientifically proven to be the most beneficial and healthy detoxing method known to man. So, when you wake up in the morning, sit up straight and breathe in for a count that is comfortable for you to start—say 4 seconds. Then hold for 16 seconds, and breathe out for a count of 8 seconds. Mid-day or after work, repeat this process. Finally, just before going to bed, repeat this simple breathing technique. Do this exercise three times a day, and you’ll see the maximum detoxing results.
