Topic: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi there,

For the first time i bought Chi Instant Conditioner and have tried it for the past few days. However, when using it my hair feels more greasy, also looks more greasy, and feels more limp and flat. And my scalp tends to itch slightly more when using it. Should i not use it? Usually i use the Conditioner Mists and they work great.

And... when using the Euro Organic Oil i get the same feeling/look. But especially when using the oil my scalp begins to itch fiercly after i've used it. Why? Should i stop?

i have a very itchy scalp to begin with and have lost a lot of hair on the top, which i'm of course hoping will come back again, because as a woman it really bothers me. i use all your four shampoos and two mists conditioners regularly and the detox as well. And i use the massager every days several times daily, and brush daily too. And since starting your regimen about 2 1/2 months ago my scalp does not itch as much as it used to, yet it still itches some, but i'm patient and know it can take a while before my scalp gets well and i see new growth. Does the itching have to go away before new hair can grow?


Sincerely,
MacKey

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

The itching is caused by the scalp being irritated for different reasons.
Since using MM for 2 1/2 months it sounds like there is a change.
Do you use anything else?  like relaxers, colors, straighteners or any other hair care product?
if yes then this needs to stop.
Suggest doing the Zen Detox WEEKLY until the itching stops.

If your scalp and hair is oily then suggest stopping using the chi cond. and the Euro until it gets back to normal.

Brushing and scalp massaging daily will help alot giving the scalp much needed blood and air circulation which it sounds like you need for certatin.

You should have no more hair loss by now
as for the new growth to come in it depends on your oil glands getting back into normal balance and the scalp detoxing to a normal level also.
the itching will stop completely by stopping any other process and hair care
The more one stays 100% Natural and does your homework our Method does work.

Keep me updated on your progress
Thankyou for your concerns and Wishing you Luxurious and Healthy hair and scalp

Hi Anthony,


Thank you so much for your reply, i much apprecite it :-) And thank you for such great products.

i do not use any any hair care products but yours. i have tried your hennas also and those are the only colors i will do. i've had a severe itchy scalp since i was about 17 i'm now 27, so for a decade i've had these scalp/hair problems and in that time span i lost a lot of hair on the crown and front of my head. And yes my hair is oily, or gets oily very quickly. i have to wash every day. i know i've had this problem for a long time and am of course not expecting it to disappear over night, and using your products, i have definitely felt improvement in the itiching... it's not as severe as it used to be and my hair feels and looks much healthier, so i will be patient. And start doing the detox weekly and stop the Chi Cond. i just want to mention that i also get these small (pimples like) bumps on my scalp that are usually sore... again that hasn't been occuring as much since using your products, but occasionally still.

All the best,
MacKey

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi again,


i don't know if it has anything to say, but the more oily my hair is/get the more my scalp itches. When it is newly washed then it itches much less. But at the end of the day and after a night's sleep it itches more. Massaging and brushing feels really good on my scalp so i'm doing that more often now.


All the best,
MacKey

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

If your scalp and hair persists on being over oily and itchy then suggest
using an astrigent such as witch hazel with a cottom ball

Start from your forehead then up to the  front hair line wiping the cotton ball full of with hazel across your scalp and continue thru out the entire scalp.  You can do this once per day generally in the pm when you come home from work or anytime during the day when you feel that your scalp is too oily and itchy.
I have had patients with the same situations.

They would shampoo daily
use an astrigent daily also with a cotton ball during the day but not after shampooing that is too soon.

Its just that your oil glands are over producing and need to be brought back to a normal balance.

This is an xtra step for xtra oily scalps.
also
zen detox as often as you would like its quite normal and helps speed up the detoxing process
do alot of brushing and scalp massaging.

And your diet should be quite alive and fresh avoid all deep fried, oily foods for certain.
Exercise is excellent a basic yoga class will do wonders and alot of deep breathing.  walks also to help pump more blood and air thru out the body.  30 minute walks have proven to be the most effective.  not running nor jogging simple walking for 30 minutes does wonders.

Keep me posted

and thanks for taking care of yourself and going truly Natural and simple Pure

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi Anthony,


Thank you for your advice and your products. i just received another jar of the Zen Detox, and plan on using it once per week until my scalp clears up, as you adviced. Also i just colored my hair with your henna, this is the 3 time i'm doing so and i love it. However i have a question about color...

First time i colored my hair with your henna, i did the Strawberry Blonde henna, however my hair picked up a LOT of red and i ended up with copper orange hair, not really what i wanted though it was a gorgeous color, just not for my skin tone. Then you adviced to do the Marigold Blonde to tone down the red, which i then did and it did tone down the red some. So when my roots started showing i thought that i might try the Light Brown henna. Now, it seems that m hair really likes to pick up on the red, because my hair picked up some more red, now it's sort of chestnut-ty reddish, looks great, however is there a way i can get a more chocolate-y color? Should i just do the Light Brown henna once more? or what should i do?


All the best,
MacKey.

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

first of all stay away from all the red tone henna's

suggest doing Marigold blonde and mix with light brown 1/2 to 1/2 ration.

then adjust to your desire for tones and color

Great Adventures and Health

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

hi Anthony,


i have tried getting some Witch Hazel as you suggested but where i live (small town in Denmark) there is no such thing, unless it's mixed with other things and a lot of chemicals and preservatives. i've tried looking online and there are organic Witch Hazel waters out there (the ones i've come across contain natrual derived alcohol though), however they don't tend to ship to Denmark. Do you know where i can get a hold of the kind of Witch Hazel you have suggested?

Also...

Since i have this problem of my scalp getting oily very quickly thus turning my hair greasy within 24 hours, i have been using some powder to elimiate the oiliness. Is this OK? It's a powder from Farmaesthetics (all natural skin care) and it contains this... "arrowroot, cornstarch, clay, sage, thyme, lavender & sea salt", that's all it contains. i know my scalp was very damaged before i started using your products about 3 1/2 - 4 months ago, and it had been very damaged for a decade, so i can't expect improvement overnight. It is better and the day i see new hair growth i will mark that day in my calendar :-) i am definitely hoping new growth will come in soon.


All the best,
MacKey.

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Yes go to

www.humphreysusa.com

HUMPHREYS WITCH HAZEL ASTRIGENT 100% NATURAL SINCE 1854

they do ship, I personallyu order the 16oz  473ml size and use it as a astrigent, facial splash and body deodorant.


they use grain alcolol which is OK
wood alcohols are not OK for the liver and digestive system.

SIMPLY use a cotton ball and wash the scalp several times daily and keep it oil free.
this will help bring the oil glands back in balance
alternate the 4 shampoos one each time
alternate the conditioners
Zen Detox is excellent for this condition

Great Journey and Health

Anthony

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi Again,


i did a bit of searching on the net on Humphreys and i found a place that sell their witch hazel and they ship to Denmark, so that is great. i just ordered the big 16 oz. bottle. Thanks again Anthony, for the great advice you give and for your great products. Also i was studying the front of my scalp last night, up close, and i believe i saw some fine new hairs sticking up. First i thought maybe it was just old hairs that had broken off, but i do think it's new hairs, since i've never really noticed old hairs breaking off that close to the scalp :-)


All the best,
MacKey.

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi Anthony,

How long does it take for the henna color to get washed out? i've tried toning down the red with marigold blonde, however it's still red, not as much though. but i think i am just going to leave that color alone now and then have patience and then hopefully it'll get washed out? my roots are starting to show, so i hope it won't have to go through my whole length before the henne color is gone. next time i will just stick to the marigold :-)


All the best,
MacKey.

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

YES the best is to leave it alone it will tone down by itself.

generally MM Henna is good for 6 to 12 weeks unfortunately with red its probable more like 10 to 12 weeks.

Marigold for the roots only will work out great

Great color Adventures
Anthony

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi again Anthony,


i just received Humphrey's witch hazel, and i'm excited to see how it'll work. i know you told me to apply it to my scalp with a cottonball, however... can i spray it on too? it's easier spraying it into my hair and scalp, than using a cottonball, but if the effect isn't the same, then i will of course do it as you suggested :-)


All the best,
MacKey

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

For an oily scalp its best to use a cotton ball to wash ones scalp that will take away some of the excessive oils.
You can also spray it on during the day.
But as an astigent its best to wash with a cotton ball often as you like.

Great Health
Anthony

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

hi Anthony,


i've been using Humphrey's witch hazel for a couple of weeks now, wiping my scalp with a cotton ball staturated with witch hazel whenever it felt greasy. and it has really helped a lot. some days i have been able to go a day in between washing my hair, which i've not been able to do since i was a kid. my scalp is not as greasy now thus neither is my hair. i am so grateful for your advice and all your products. i am also using the Zen scalp therapy every week, it feels so good.

i have been using your products for about 4 months now and i hve definitely seen an improvement. i haevn't yet seen new hair growth, but i kno it will come too. i did not expect to see new growth soon, i ws thinking abou after a year or so, since my condition was really bad. i've been suffering from such an upset scalp for more than a decade and it took years for my hair to thin, so i knew it would take time to recover, but i know it will, it already has some, so i know i'm on the right path.

now, i have a question... it's about my wonderful mother... she has very thin hair and wears it very short. it's thin allover and you can see right through to her scalp. because it's so uniform then it doesn't look dreadful, it just looks like very fine and thin baby hair. 27 years ago had a bad lung disease and was on very strong medication, she recovered. but pretty much throughout her entire life she's been on some kind of medication (she's suffered from very bad eczema). right now she's on heart medication. however, i was wondering if she would have any chance of new hair growth with your products? or is it too late for her? has she been on to many medications?

Again, thank you!


All the best,
MacKey

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Hi again Anthony,


i know you must be a very busy man :-) And i know you will answer my question (the one above) when you can, so forgive me for being a little bit impatient :-D i truly appreicate your advice and encouragement. Thank you.


All the best,
MacKey.

Re: Chi Instant Conditioner & Euro Organic Oil

Anyone at any age can see major changes by using Truly Natural Products

Step one stop using all the hair care with chemicals and toxic ingredients

***UPDATE: Morrocco Method now has 5 shampoos.***
step two alternate the 4 shampoos and allow time to detox
Zen detox is very helpful to speed up the detox process

As for your situation with a overoily scalp it will take time to rejuventate your oil glands
so alot of brushing, scalp massaging, alternate the hair care products and keep up the astrigents naturally.

would imagine that early spring of 2007 you will see new growth for certain
winter is a time for hybernation and including hair it will take a rest from new hair growth.

If your Mom  is a positive person and willing to step forward into a more natural way of life style then there is always the reality of being healthier in hair and skin.

but if one sees great results and wishes it for someone else do not get disappointed if they do not go along with  your passion for what you have discovered.

Parents are our Gods and Goddesses on Earth and therefore we need to allow them their own space to make decisions that are for their reality.

My Dad did alot of things that I did not approve of but he lived to be 90 1/2 and lived a very adventurous life.
I discovered a long time ago to leave him alone to "do his thing"  and prayed for his soul and his awakening.

I believe today that these prayers were answered as I did touch his soul and see his evolution toward the Sun.

Great Journey and a word to the wise is sufficient.

Great Health and Education

Anthony
