How To Dilute Morrocco Method Shampoos
amanda linette meder
I first started using the Morrocco Method shampoos in 2016. I dyed my hair platinum blond, fried it, and then decided it was time to go back to my natural hair color.
For the record, I don't think there is anything superior about going back to your natural hair color.
I love playing around with different hairstyles, and I think hair stylists are creative geniuses.
It's just that I'd been dying my hair since I was thirteen, using everything from Sun-In to professional processes. My hair had been every color from nearly black to platinum to every spectrum in between.
I had traversed life up until that point trying every hair color and style, except my own. So it was time to see what my own hair color could do.
The process of returning to my natural hair color took a little over two years. In that time, I learned a lot about the chemicals and products that we put on our skin and hair and how they make us feel.
This journey is what also led me to find Morrocco Method, a haircare line dedicated to helping you have the best natural hair of your life.
As someone who runs a website for sensitive people, in my experience, if you're sensitive to energy, emotions or food, you're may also be sensitive to the different products you put on your skin and scalp.
I recommend Morrocco Method Shampoos if your scalp burns, itches or even feels sensitive when you wash. Their shampoos are entirely free of sulfates, which is one of the main chemicals that tends to irritate the skin.
In my blog from this last summer on How To Tell If A Product Is Going To Irritate Your Skin, I go over the method I use for determining if a shampoo, skincare product or lotion is going to irritate your skin, along with alternatives if you find out that one will.
And I include the Morrocco Method Five Element Shampoo line in my recommendations.
If this is your first time with Morrocco Method, you'll know that the Morrocco Method bottled shampoos tend to have a different consistency from other shampoos.
It's mud-like, and this makes it challenging to swirl it through your hair on its own, which tends to scare people off from the line, but once you learn how to work with it, it's fine.
The consistency of the Morrocco Method Shampoos looks a bit like this:
They also have a Shampoo Bar they just released that lathers, but this blog isn't about that product.
This blog is about their core shampoo collection, The Five Elements Shampoo Package.
Morrocco Method recommends that for the best results with their core shampoos, you cycle through all of them, one each time you shampoo, for a lush, balanced scalp.
When I first tried their bottled shampoos, I went through them pretty quickly, because I just kept adding more shampoo to get it to lather and it never did, it just stuck like mud on my scalp.
Trust me, spending so much money on shampoo to not get the results you want is not the way.
So along with the recommendation that you rotate through all the shampoos, lining them all up in the shower using a different one each day, Morrocco Method recommends that you dilute their shampoos for the best results.
I will testify that diluting their shampoos work better than just glopping the mud on your head. You use less shampoo, which saves money, and your hair comes out looking a lot cleaner.
I've tried diluting their shampoos in red beer pong cups, smoothie shake bottles, and glass jars.
What I've found works best is if you use a squeeze bottle to dilute their shampoos, like this one from OXO Good Grips -
I recommend you dedicate the squeeze bottle to your shampoo process.
You can find this OXO Good Grips bottle on Amazon. Having one dedicated shampoo dilution bottle avoids you accumulating kitchen wear in the shower, also I’ve found the nozzle really helps you get the shampoo where you want it.
Then, to the bottle, add about one tablespoon of shampoo:
Then, add about two ounces of water and shake it up:
Apply and massage this mixture through to your scalp, then repeat this process a second time for best results.
I've found that by diluting the shampoos and shampooing twice, as recommended on the bottle, my hair feels the cleanest, most full, and has the best texture with the least amount of residue.
So to recap -
The Dilution Process for Morrocco Method Shampoos:
Step 1. Get a shaker container, like a salad dressing squeeze bottle.
Step 2. Add one tablespoon (give or take) of shampoo to the bottle.
Step 3. Add two ounces of water to the line on the bottle.
Step 4. Shake it up.
Step 5. Apply and massage through your hair.
Step 6. Repeat from Step 2.
This is my second time through The Five Elements Shampoo Line, and I've found that I'm using less shampoo this way and making the most of package, which runs for $129.00 when on sale.
Each shampoo runs $25.80 when bought in the package versus $29.00 when purchased separately, so you save around $16 when purchasing them all together.
For best results, Morrocco Method suggests you rotate through all five, Cycling a new one each day, not a new bottle after you finish a bottle. So it makes the most sense, cost-wise, to get the five shampoos together.
Also, each bottle of shampoo contains 354mL of shampoo.
If you use one tbs (14.79mL) of shampoo a day, you're looking at 24 days of shampoo per bottle, depending on how heavy-handed you are and how frequently you shampoo.
This means that you can likely expect the line to last you anywhere between 3-6 months using this method of dilution.
Last time I worked with this line, I finished all the bottles in about four months, but given this new dilution technique, I'm expecting a little longer!

Because I use their other products, I also want to mention that since using the Morrocco Method, my hair feels thicker, fuller, and it has natural highlights, an unexpected perk. So the line really does do what it says - my natural hair is not only back, it's beautiful, too.

PS - After I started writing this post, Morrocco Method changed the packaging for this line. I feel like these may fit a little better in the shower and aesthetically, I do like them more. Here’s a pic the marketing team sent me for the line’s new look:
