    So, @MzSwift posted this post,

    https://longhaircareforum.com/threa...nking-out-loud.541651/page-1511#post-25280091

    It arrived Sunday and I used it for my protein treatment. I colored my hair in June for my birthday so Im trying to keep up with my hair treatments. I usually use henna or cassia for that as my hair doesnt like any hard proteins as at all.


    This stuff is interesting. It comes out like water. What scared me was it says keep on only for 10 seconds. My hair isn't long and when its wet, it might as well be 3 inches. I probably should have did it in the shower but I was downstairs so I went ahead.


    I cleaned my hair with NaturesEgo Chebe Detox shampoo, which I LOVE. and then in two sections added it to the right side first. I squeezed it in and then rubbed the ends. My hair turned creamy. Then I hurried to the sink and rinsed. The right side of my hair felt soft. Went and repeated to the left side. I was a little paranoid and the weird thing is, the left side warmed up while the right side didnt do that. ( I read up reviews and it stated this would happen).

    After rinsing both sides of my hair felt soft, not overly but soft. HOWEVER the left side of my hair was tangled. I'm wondering is the warming up effect is because it was in longer than 10 seconds hence that side being tangled. I wanted to try out CRN Around the world collection OUD Moisture treatment so I steamed it in. After steaming my hair was soft but not overly so.

    Went straight into air drying with a leave in. Its an interesting product. I will use it again in 6 weeks and update. I did notice that the hair in the front of my head which is loose, was hanging straighter than usual. I used a rice water leave in so my hair seems to be firm and supple. I'll keep an eye out in the coming weeks.

    Oooooohhhh, thank you so much for posting!

    Mine just arrived today. :clap: I plan to try mine in the shower (probably not a good idea) sometime this week. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

    Actually I think the shower is best. Apply,rub, rinse.

    The next time I try it will be in the shower. The sink was too much work to dip down and rinse.

    Finished my small plaits. I plan to cleanse and use this water amino acid tx this weekend. Kinda nervous because I don't like to play around with different products. But my hair loves that baking soda/amino acid DC that I mix up at times and a 10 second tx is right up my lazy alley. Fingers crossed!

    @shawnyblazes have you experienced any negative side effects since your tx?

    OK, so I washed my hair in the shower, parted my hair in two halves and applied the Moremo tx. Overall, I liked that my hair felt stronger immediately after applying it. It says to apply to "damaged" hair and my hair is texlaxed so I am always looking for convenient ways to incorporate protein.

    Immediate Pros:
    -only have to leave on the hair for 10 seconds
    -easy to apply in the shower
    -hair felt stronger
    -smells great
    -possible to use in relaxing process to infuse protein back into the strands

    Immediate Cons:
    -it warms as it is left on and rubbed into the hair. I'm not sure about the science of it all but it definitely makes me want to quickly rinse it out, Lol.
    -may not be able to be used during the relaxer/coloring process


    I definitely want to use it more consistently before I give a good "review" on it. I am happy enough with how it went and how my hair felt afterwards to continue to use it.

    My hair is currently in a full PS.

    I used the Moremo weekly with no adverse effects. It immediately makes my hair feel stronger. I don't play around, though, and I'm sure to rinse it out in 10 seconds. The warming sensation makes me nervous but I think it had hundreds or thousands of reviews between Amazon and other places where people have used it long term with good results and no ill effects.

    I love it! It smells great. It's super convenient being able to do a protein tx for 10 seconds in the shower. I love how the liquid seems to penetrate into my strands. I really love the nozzle applicator as it allows me to use a small amount and then rub it in without wasting a lot of product. If I use this weekly, this small bottle could last me 4+ months and I have MBL hair.

    only reason I have yet to use this is because I'm still weary of the general formulation. I also can't pinpoint which ingredient causes the warming sensation, but both of my concerns points to both of those alcohol ingredients. I'm very big on collagen, so from my theory I'm guessing the alcohols break down the proteins enough for them to penetrate both the cuticle layers, as well as membranes, and lipid layers. Interesting, but still making me go "hmmmm".

    It takes me longer than 10 seconds to put anything on my hair.
    I want to try this but I don't want trouble lol.

    That’s my concern too. I like to take my time when applying product. I’m guessing most of the heat that’s felt is when it comes into with the scalp. I suppose if you keep it away from the scalp there would be no issue keeping it on longer

    For anyone interested, HSN has more reviews and info: https://www.hsn.com/products/moremo-water-treatment-miracle-10/8392227

    Thank you for this! I'm no scientist but what you said makes sense to me.


    LOL, I totally understand the reservation. I've had the same regi and main staple products since 2010, I don't typically like to take chances. Once every few years, I might try something to simplify my regi. That was my hold up too, the fact that some reviewers said that it warms. A lot of others didn't report any warming at all though.

    I don't put it on my scalp/new growth. I only apply it to my chemically treated hair, so I have no idea what it feels like on the scalp. However, the "warming" I feel is like lukewarm tap water. It doesn't get hot, just warm, but it's weird when it's not a common experience. Most products are cool from having sat in the container before we use it. The warming happens about the 7 or 8 second mark, just before it is rinsed out. It gets on the back of my hand sometimes and I don't feel the warmth. Surprisingly, don't get any chemical reactions either. Stuff like V05 Moisture Milks make my scalp itchy and burn, so I use caution as if I have some sensitivity or allergy.

    LOL, same here. And I'm typcially heavy handed with my products. Because it's a 10 second treatment I decided to do it in the shower and split my hair down the middle into halves as a precaution. I squirt on a very thin line from the back to the front of my head, put the bottle down and the scrunch and massage the product in while counting to 10. It works right into the strands, probably because of the science that Sista Planet mentioned. I can tell which strands it has been worked into because there is an immediate difference in how the strand feels. The hair feels stronger, softer, hydrated and nourished. Really hard to explain. HTH! :) But I'm not pushing anything else on you after the yogurt. :p

    I'll keep updating after months and a year. I plan to keep using it as my fine hair definitely benefits from the protein.

    It's ok. I'll just wait a little longer to make sure your hair doesn't fall out:look:. Then I'll try it :lol:.

    Have you been using this product for some years too? For some reason I thought you recently added it to your regimen.

    :lachen: OK, it's a deal.

    Yes, yogurt was definitely a staple for years. No adverse effects for me. I just started using it less because I would let the leftovers go to waste. Also because I started slipping in my haircare regi. DCing went out the window. Started incorporating more Henna glosses and trying out shelf products. That's why I'm using this Moremo, it plays into my need for faster processes these days. I'm looking for convenient ways to add more protein into my older ends I'm hoping that will help a lot with retention. That's another reason why it doesn't touch my scalp, I focus it on the ends. That way, only the ends will fall off. LOL. j/k

    Would you say moremo is a mild, moderate or heavy protein treatment?

    I would consider it between mild and moderate. My hair feels stronger but still very soft. No straw-like feeling.

    But that could also just be the nature of the types of protein in the product.
