Funny story… I lived in California, land of celebrities. I used to work in the Los Angeles area all the time. I met my fair share of “handlers.” You know, people who make sure celebrities always look red-carpet ready. During my “professional” days, you would never catch me without my hair done and my makeup on. And yet, I never once had a celebrity stylist of any sort comment on my appearance. And trust me, I spent plenty of time chit chatting in airports with these folks. It wasn’t that I expected anyone to comment on my bouncy curls but IF someone were going to comment on my hair, I would expect it would have been when I used to put an hour’s worth of effort into it a day and not after I switched to an easy, natural hair care routine.
Fast forward 8 years and here I am in the middle-of-no-where in the blazing hot Arizona desert. (I’m attempting to heat the mold out here.) Anyhoo – I decide to take my daughter out for dinner and while we are waiting, this extraordinarily friendly fellow starts talking to us. He kept looking at my hair.
Let’s stop for a moment and discuss my hair. I hadn’t washed it in two days. The bouncy curls were losing their pep a bit but my hair was still pretty shiny and soft. However, I wouldn’t say there was anything particularly impressive about my hair that day.
So back to Mr. Friendly.
After a few minutes of random discussion related to the heat, he asked how I took care of my hair. I must have had a funny look on my face because he told me that he was a stylist and that my hair was intriguing.
Intriguing hair…huh. Never really looked at my hair and thought “wow – how intriguing.” Fast forward another five minutes and I learned that he is a celebrity hair stylist (mostly for “B” actors if that matters any) and that my hair was hands down some of the healthiest he had seen.
Of course I assumed that this was because I don’t drown my hair in chemicals and I don’t style it with heat. I figured he was used to seeing over processed, over styled hair.
I had to laugh when this guy pulled out his phone, pressed record, and asked me to tell him EVERYTHING about my hair care routine. He was dead serious when he said that whatever I was doing would sell like hotcakes to his clients. He wanted every juicy detail.
I had to laugh because my natural hair care routine centers on Morrocco Method products and their hair care protocol. It isn’t fancy. In fact it is downright simple. I virtually put no effort into my hair and just let the Morrocco Method products and methodology do all the heavy lifting.
Today I thought I would share exactly what I do to my hair. You know, in case more celebrity hair stylists come around asking for advice.
My Natural Hair Care Secrets Revealed
- I ONLY use the Morrocco Method line of hair care products. I don’t mix and match with any other product line.
- I only wash my hair when it truly needs it. During warm weather, that is every other day. During cool weather I can sometimes go 5 days.
- I always shampoo my hair twice. The first time involves an invigorating scalp scrub to loosen all the gunk. The second time is when the “squeaky” clean action happens.
- I rotate shampoos based on my hair and scalp’s needs.
- I make sure to detox my scalp monthly.
- I brush my hair and massage my scalp several times per day.
- I do not use chemical dyes. When my grey hairs are making me feel like a 100 year old grandma, I use henna.
- I do not style my hair with heat.
- I am very careful about HOW I get excess water out of my hair. No ringing or harsh squeezing here.
- I listen to my hair. Yes, your hair will always be able to tell you what it needs.
I don’t care what other people think about my hair. Seriously. I am happy with the health of my hair and scalp and that is what matters. It shouldn’t matter that my natural hair care routine takes 5 minutes per day. My hair looks and feels healthier than when I spent hours per day getting it perfect.
What you just read above is basically what I told this celebrity stylist who looked like I just told him I ate toxic waste for breakfast. He was absolutely stunned. I mean, he really could not wrap his brain around the fact that ONE single product line could make my hair look so vibrant. He kept insisting that there was no way. But I told him I would text him a photo of my humble little product lineup when I got back home. And I did. And he was still just stunned.
I hope that he took my experience with the Morrocco Method line of products back to Hollywood with him! I would love to see a celebrity hair care revolution. Or wait – maybe I don’t! Maybe I need to keep my natural hair care secrets all to myself. 😉
