Modern Organic Products for "Root Volume" and Styling

By 

from Jupiter, FL

Comments about MOP Lemongrass Lift Spray 250ml:

I was given **MOP "Lemongrass Lift**" hair product as a gift. I always complain about my flat hair, so this product promised to lift your roots, or "give them volume", as the bottle label indicated. Because it came in a convenient little pump-spray 1.7 fl. oz bottle, it appeared so practical and easy to use. I looked forward to trying it out in the near future.

Generally speaking, I prefer a mousse or foam to provide all- over body for my hair.  In combination with a hair dryer, most mousses or foams will give you some serious hair volume. Well, this root volume lift comes in a little spray bottle, and it's not a mousse or a foam, it's just a liquid. The idea here is to spritz it onto your roots and all over hair, and style as usual. No other suggestions. So, that's what I tried to use it for, to achieve some "root volume or lift," according to the directions

I had never heard of the MOP Company until I received this gift. **MOP** stands for **Modern Organic** **Products**. Its website  says that it carries a sophisticated line of "earth friendly" products that offer quality salon hair-care at home. MOP's products also "provide beauty in balance with nature." They also adhere to the highest standards in salon-quality hair. MOP's Lemongrass Lift  was awarded the **2010 InStyle Best Beauty Buy Winner**.

Well, I've used it and I'm not impressed. It mentions that it has a Lemon Grass scent to it. I didn't notice this aroma, but, the spray did smell clean and fresh on my hair.  Maybe my hair is just the wrong style to work well with this spray. I have fine, thick, all one length, hair to my shoulders. I've sprayed it at  the roots, under my roots, on top of my head, all over my hair, and I didn't achieve volume or lift, just a little bit of texture.

It  also mentions that it contains both Organic Apple Cider and Wheat Protein that condition your hair.  Yes, my hair did feel softer, but, not fuller. I actually used more product than I probably should have to try to get some volume or "lift" from my roots.  Then, my hair was too soft, because I used too much "MOP "Lift". Once that happened, It was highly unlikely that I would achieve any volume. I've concluded that this product  doesn't work very well with my longer hair style.

**INGREDIENTS**: Water, VP/VA Copolyner, Laureth-23, Hydolyzed Wheat Protein, Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Natural Marine Resource (Chitosan) Cymbopogon Scoenanthus Extract, Lemongrass, Chamomile Flower Extract, Calendula Flower Extract, Crataegus Monogina Fruit Extract, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Gigkgo Biloba Extract, Blackberry Fruit Extact, Grape Seed Extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, Lactic Acid,  Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Panthenol, Yellow 5 (Certified Organic)

My opinion about this product is this. On one hand, many people have had very favorable results with **MOP Lemon Grass Lift,** boasting of pronounced hair volume and root lift.  I have not experienced these benefits on my particular hair style. In addition, this product contains a lot of parabens, and some nice moisturizing oils. It includes some nice ingredients, but, then includes preservatives as well. I'm not sure how this "fits" with its more "natural" profile, either.

In conclusion, all hair is different in texture, different lengths, different cuts, and that does not preclude that this product is ineffective. For me though, with my particular hair style and type, this spray didn't perform very well.
