|Morocco Method: Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free hair products|
[An aside: Can you believe my 7th-grade English teacher saw me toting the book and told me it was "too old" for me? Wow.]
Flash-forward about 35 years. These days, between blogging, Tweeting, Instagram-ing, Pinning, and downloading books to my Kindle faster than you can say "civil disobedience," I still daydream about living off the grid. I think America's new-found reliance on technology, love of instant gratification, and contracted attention spans, IMHO, have actually fueled the current popular craft, flea market and DIY sub-cultures. Even though these quiet past-times may seem nostalgic, I see them more as acts of rebellion...

The good: Revolutionary hair care! All natural. Raw. Vegan. Gluten-Free. Cruelty-free. Environmentally friendly. Many of their products are gentle enough for kids and even pets. The products I tried smelled absolutely lickable and made my hair shiny and soft. Morocco Method donates a portion of their profits to worthy organizations like the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary and Boys to Men California Coast Mentoring Project, to name just a few.
The not-so-good: If Morocco Method wants to be competitive in the busy natural hair care marketplace, they seriously need a good package designer. This stuff screams "Health Food Store." Which worked about 10 years ago but not any more.
I'm undecided on: The Lunar Hair Chart they list on their web site. Part of me thinks it's charming in a kooky sort of way, and part of me dislikes how it will fuel the stereotype of the crunched-out dreamer vegan.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a solid, natural hair care product, look no further. The nice folks at Morocco Method have made it easy. They've offered to send a free Heavenly Chi Shampoo and Diamond Crystal Mist Leave-In Conditioner to one lucky reader [US residents only, please]. All you have to do is leave a comment listing the ingredient in mainstream hair care products that most concerns you. And you get extra brownie points by doing any – and preferably all, of the following
