Hello Anthony,
I haven't posted in a while, but I am a long-time loyal customer.  Although I have been using henna for the last 3.5 years, I am seriously considering letting my gray grow in.  I believe I am about 50% gray, but I don't know for sure...  Of course I will still use the neutral henna because I love the conditioning affect the henna has on my hair. 

Do you have any tips for the transitioning phase?  I'm not looking forward to the line of demarcation, but I refuse to use any chemicals on my hair, and I have not done so since I found Morrocco Method.  My natural/original color is dark brown, and I now have lots of red "highlights" from the henna.  Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
sunshine

Thanks JMS!  I'll look into that.

I started following the Morrocco Method about 3 years ago and stopped all chemical processes.  I also paid attention to all the "spokes in the wheel" and my thinning hair started to thicken up.  I no longer feel like I am going bald, I am now happy with my hair.

Does anyone have any information about natural sunscreens?  I've heard that shea butter is good.  Anything else?  We're leaving for the beach on Sunday morning.
Thanks!

Hello Anthony,
It's been a long time since I've posted, but I continue to use your products religiously.  I have been noticing over the last several months that my roots are fading after about a week of applying the henna.  In the beginning I used the two-step process, but after a while (and with your advice), I began using only the dark brown henna in one step.  Today I was reading the new henna instructions (at least new to me), and I see the following:

"If you are a dark brunette looking to cover grey and create nice auburn highlights and shine an excellent henna color formula is: 4 tablespoons red, 3 tablespoons dark brown, 1 tablespoon medium brown."

Since I am a brunette with ~40% grey, do you think if I switch to this mixture that it would help with my root fading?  I refuse to put chemicals on my hair (now that I know better nomicons/smile), but if I can't find a mixture that works, I may have to go natural!  OMG!  That would be horrible!  I'm too young to be grey!  nomicons/smile

Your advice, as always, is most appreciated!

Thank you so much,
sunshine

Hi superbonbon,
I'm not an expert by any means, but I do know that it is considered a natural laxative.  Occasionally, I drink the Lily of the Desert Aloe Juice, and I've never had that kind of problem.  Maybe the gel is more potent.  FWIW.
Take care,
sunshine

Hello Anthony,
I am getting my spring trim tomorrow, and I have a question for you.  I am trying to grow my hair longer; it's now a little past shoulder length.  I don't want to sacrifice any length, but its been 6 months since I've had it trimmed.  Would you suggest an inch or would a half an inch be just as good?  My hair does not appear to be damaged; I don't see any split ends or anything, and of course its in very good condition as I have been using your products for almost two years now.

As always, thanks for your help,
sunshine

Hi Anthony,
I have noticed something a couple of times lately that has concerned me.  Right after brushing, I've seen a couple of short hairs (one to two inch) on my clothes, and I'm concerned that maybe some of my ends are weak and breaking off.   My last cut was from Linda in Maui this past May.  Do you think it is just a matter of needing a trim, or is there something else you would recommend?  I was trying to wait until the September lunar days for my trim, but if that's' not a good idea, I'll go ahead and trim it.  What do you think?
Thanks,
sunshine

bikerbarbie,
Please see my "one year update" post at the link below.  It is not a quick fix by any means, but I can say, that I followed Anthony's advice, all the "spokes in the wheel", and I really have seen new growth.  Good luck to you.  A positive attitude makes all the difference.

Hi Sandra,
Yes, I do.  The color seems to be deeper.  I used the dark brown and it seems to be a little darker than before.  Did you have a similar experience?

Hi Anthony,
My husband just finished applying the henna for me (he's a sweetheart).  I don't know what's different, but the henna was so much creamier and went on so much smoother.  I don't think we got any on the floor!  I was just wondering if anything had changed in the mixture because I don't believe I did anything differently when mixing.  This was the first time I received my henna in the plastic jar instead of the plastic bags.  Surely that doesn't have anything to do with it...

I'll let you know the results of the color tomorrow. 
Thanks,
sunshine

I did just that a couple of days ago, and it seemed to work fine.  I can't tell that it affected the color in any way.  Good luck!

Anyone have a good multi-vitamin or vitamin regimen they use?  I feel like I need a multi-vitamin, but I don't want synthetic vitamins with a lot of fillers and preservatives.  Anyone using vitamins/supplements they are really happy with (especially if they improve the hair)?

Thanks,
sunshine

Thanks, MacKey, for the information on shea butter.  I had never heard that before, but I'm going to get some.  I just came back from Hawaii for two weeks, and I did use an "organic" sunscreen (no PABA) a couple of days, but I didn't really want to use any at all.  It was just when I knew I would be in the sun longer than normal or at the wrong time of the day.  I really like the idea of using shea butter though, because I really don't WANT to use sunscreen.  Thanks again!

Anthony,
Thank you for recommending Linda in Maui.  She is a wonderful hair cutter, and I really enjoyed my time with her.  And thank you for the henna tips.   No more black for me!
Your loyal customer,

Hi Tami,
Just my 2 cents.  I started using Henna about a year ago right over my color-treated hair with no problems whatsoever.  As far as the blunt snip cut, the stylists I've talked to aren't familiar with it, but they do know what a blunt cut is, so you could at least get that.  That's what I've been doing.  Also, I just want to say that these products REALLY work.  After coloring my hair for over 20 years, my hair was really starting to thin, and I was very bothered by that.  Please read my post (One Year Update) for more information, but the bottom line is that I have seen new growth and less scalp, so I am just thrilled.  My hair and scalp are much, much healthier.  Good luck to you!

Dear Anthony,
A year has now past since I began using your products (shampoo, conditioners, hair brush, massager, gel, Zen detox, henna).  I just want to go on record with a huge "THANK YOU".  I started using your products because my hair was starting to thin on top and on the sides, and I was very distraught over that.  When I found your products, and they were all natural and organic (no chemicals),  I was so excited.  It just made sense to me.  I want you to know that when I look in the mirror now, I no longer see my scalp; I see hair!  My hair has really filled in where it was thinning.  Hooray!

Now, my hair isn't perfect by any means.  I'm still working on it.  My next goal is to get the texture and shine back.  My hair is shoulder length, curly/wavy, very fine, and kind of has that fuzzy/frizzy look to it (in places).   What would you recommend to improve the texture and shine.  Should I use the Euro oil more often.  Also, I read on another forum that women wash their hair with conditioner only and the texture and shine of their hair improves.  What do you think about this?  Is this something one could do with the Chi conditioner?

Again, Anthony, thank you for making these wonderful products available to us.

Sincerely,
sunshine

Hi Connie,
I was just wondering if you know which piece of JMS' process made the difference for you.  I'm getting fairly good results, but my roots are still redder than I'd like for them to be.  I've never used a ceramic pot for the tea; maybe that's the key.  Also, I've never covered the mixtures while I let them sit.  I think I will try both of these. 

Thanks so much for the henna tips, JMS!

A wonderful day to you both!
Sunshine

Does anyone know a good hair cutter in the Dallas area?  My stylist of 20+ years is not happy that I am now coloring with henna and not having her color my hair.  For the last several hair cuts, although I have asked for a blunt cut of only the ends, she continues to "trim" my bangs that I am trying to grow out.  She says they "need" to be trimmed.  My hair is overdue to be cut because I can't figure out who to go to.  Help!

I have dark brown hair with about 40% grey, and I've noticed the same thing.  It looks like I have reddish roots.  But I think it will look a lot better when all of the old color (before switching to MM) gets cut off.  Then I'm hoping it will look more like dark brown hair with red highlights.  Of course, I've got a long way to go because my hair is now shoulder length, and I've only been using the henna for about 8 months.  It will probably be at least a year, unless I cut it short, which I really don't want to do.

Anthony, do you think I'm right about the grey staying dark on the ends from the old color?

thanks,
sunshine

Dear Anthony,
You mentioned Linda in Maui.  Is this the Linda that is listed on the Hairdresser Locator page?  I will be visiting Maui in May of next year and would love to make an appointment with her.  For some reason, I had just assumed she was on Oauhu.  I'm hoping I will be there during the appropriate lunar days.  As always, thanks for your wonderful products and invaluable education.

Anthony and Forum Members,
I am scheduled to be vacationing next month during the seasonal lunar hair dates, and I really NEED the seasonal cut.  Does anyone know a master haircutter in Las Vegas, Nevada or the surrounding area?  Or any hair cutter who can do a classic blunt snip cut?
Thanks so much,
sunshine

Hi Dixieland,
This is what I've been doingl  After I wash, towel-dry, and comb/brush my hair, I put a small amount of the gel in my hair and comb ir through with my fingers.  Then I actually use a comb to style it straight.  Of course, my hair is never completely straight, but is is very smooth.  Then I sleep on it, and in the morning, I fluff it with my fingers or with the comb.  I don't brush my hair out until the end of the day.  I have found that since using MM products, I can actually brush my hair now without it looking frizzy!  Yea!  I would suggest you stick with it, and things will continue to get better.  I have been using the products for a little over 3 months now.
Good luck,
sunshine
