In this post, I’m excited to share with you the all-vegan and cruelty-free shampoos from Morrocco Method! Morrocco Method has been around for over 50 years, and they’ve been pioneers of the natural hair product movement. They’re Leaping Bunny certified and have a strong stance against animal testing. Their products however are very unique because they’re paleo, raw, gluten-free, GMO-free, wildcrafted, and of course, vegan (note that their brushes aren’t vegan).

- Sea Essence for normal to dry hair & scalp
- Apple Cider Vinegar for all hair & scalp types (best-seller)
- Pine Shale for normal to flaky hair & scalp
- Heavenly Essence for normal to damaged hair & scalp
More Natural Than “Natural” Brands
The main thing I love about Morrocco Method is that their ingredients are truly natural. I’m a big fan of green beauty products and try to stay away from unnecessary harsh chemicals, so I know how many companies out there claim that their products are natural when they’re absolutely not. I can think of several different shampoo brands that fall under this umbrella.
The ingredients don’t lie though, and I’ve never seen a more natural ingredients list for a shampoo. This is what the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo contains:
There isn’t a single ingredient in that list which isn’t natural. Morrocco Method lists their FULL ingredients, and not just a few “key ingredients” that happen to be natural among the harsh chemicals! For instance, Xanthan Gum is used as a natural thickening agent and Lavender oil is used as an antiseptic to kill bacteria.
Raw, Wildcrafted, and Paleo
Perhaps the most unique aspect of Morrocco Method is their raw, wildcrafted ingredients. The plants used in their products are wildcrafted, which “means that they grew without human intervention as part of an uncultivated existing ecosystem.” The plants grew in their wild, natural habitat and they were carefully harvested to make sure no damage is made to their environment.
Raw means that the ingredients weren’t homogenized or pasteurized. No heat was used and no chemicals were used to modify the ingredients, hence why they’re completely raw.
Morrocco Method products are also Paleo, meaning they’re compatible with the paleo lifestyle. This is because they’re “free from synthetic chemicals and made with only all-natural, wholesome ingredients”.
The Benefits of Going Sulfate-Free
Mainstream shampoos contain sulfates (foaming agents) such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), which is also used to clean laundry, floors, and heavy machinery. Some foaming agents are milder, but they’re foaming agents nonetheless. Morrocco Method doesn’t use any synthetic chemicals, which includes foaming agents. This means that their shampoos are non-foaming and don’t lather, similarly to cleansing conditioners.
Instead of stripping your scalp with sulfates, making it irritated and flaky, Morrocco Method shampoos cleanse your hair and scalp while nourishing it with essential fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants that promote a healthy scalp. Switching to these shampoo makes for a hair and scalp “detox”.
My Experience With Morrocco Method
This shampoo sounds great on paper, but how does it really perform?
I tried their Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo, which is suitable for all hair types. The smell of this shampoo is very earthy and slightly sweet (like apple cider and cinnamon) and you can definitely tell it’s an all-natural shampoo.
It feels like a conditioner in texture and in the way it performs. It definitely doesn’t lather, but it’s nevertheless easy to work into your hair. The brand recommends diluting the shampoo with water when you first start using it, which does make it easier to cover your whole hair.
The first time I used it, it left my hair shiny and healthy-looking. My roots were oilier than expected, but my damaged ends were much more manageable. I eventually realized that I was using too much shampoo (it does claim to be “super concentrated”). After 3 washes and some trial-and-error, I found the appropriate amount to use (definitely not as much shampoo is needed as other brands of cleansing conditioner, so keep that in mind!).
I’ll continue using this shampoo and see where this “hair detox” is going to take me! So far, I’m pleasantly surprised by the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo.
