Moo Goo

Ok so I have just had my first Moo Goo experience.

Ever since I can remember, I have suffered from Psoriasis. Not all the time, it comes and goes. But it’s very frustrating because it can seem as though I have dandruff – wearing black suits at work nowadays makes it so embarrassing. Forever looking over my shoulder dusting off the top of my clothes, paranoid that I’ve missed a spot.

So in my search to try and calm it down, I’ve been recommended, by a number of online pals, to try Moo Goo shampoo & conditioner.

Up until this point in my life, I had never even heard of this stuff before.

After locating a nearby stockist, I went and purchased some a few days ago.

I used it for the first time tonight.

Being an all natural, chemical-free product, it is supposed to offer great assistance to the general maintenance of my hair and to keep it in a nice healthy state – psoriasis free. I have decided to conduct a little experiment and keep track of the progress and changes – if any – from using Moo Goo.

Here are my notes from Day One.

When using the shampoo:

  • I found the texture to be nice and creamy, like you would expect shampoo to be.
  • I loved the smell of it. So nice and earthy and natural.
  • While using it, I found my hair felt instantly dried out. Until I've done further research, I'm taking this as a positive sign to mean it is removing all the nasties that build up in hair.
When using the conditioner:

  • Again, the texture was perfect. Nice and thick and creamy.
  • The smell, again, was divine.
  • When massaging into my scalp, my hair felt so soft and velvety. Unlike other conditioners that make your hair feel all oily and greasy.
  • Brushing my hair was a little tougher than usual. Normally the knots would just fall out once I ran a brush through the conditioner. With the Moo Goo in, they didn't fall out as easily.
  • As I rinsed it out, my hair felt so refreshed. And healthy.

I left my hair to towel dry for 10-15 minutes then proceeded to blow dry it.

During the blow dry, it did appear to take a bit of extra effort on the knots but nothing outrageously difficult.

Upon completion of the drying process my hair feels very soft and kind of creamy, but in a good way.

As for whether or not it has assisted with my psoriasis, I guess only time will tell. To quote the Pantene ads, "It won't happen overnight, but it will happen".

Taking that strategy on board, as I continue to use the Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner, I will monitor its progress and note my findings when I see anything to report.

Although I can say, I am wearing a black shirt and after drying, I was not left with any familiar "snow flake" effects on my shoulder so that's got to be a good sign.

While I can't finalize my comments just yet, as this experiment will take a few weeks to see results, I can summarize from my first Moo Goo experience and say that over all I'm not dissatisfied with the products and after spending my entire life using high-chemical based hair products, it's to be expected that the overall hair-washing process differed slightly from the norm.

However I can confidently say that at nearly $35 for this product – I do have high expectations.

Stay Tuned.
