La légendeMrs Mophead
Vitality shampoo bar
Although a name like Mrs. Mophead (Madame Tignasse) conjures images of a person with a head of thick, unruly and unkempt hair, she was far from all of that. She was the stuff of superhero legends.
Call her what you will – herbalist or witch – Mrs. Mophead was certainly in the prime of life. Her naturally beautiful flame red hair, stretching nearly to the floor, was so full of vitality that it seemed to bring a feeling of warmth to anyone who saw it.
Appropriately for a woman with a red mane, she owned a large equestrian estate near a lake. Every evening, she washed up in the lake, using only her hair as a bathrobe. To care for it, she concocted her own jealously-guarded secret hair infusion with wild carrot root. After adding clary sage picked on the night of a full moon, she thoroughly massaged it into her scalp. Her hair was so healthy and shiny that it drew the looks of both men and women, young and old alike.
Rumour has it that one year the flu was so bad that even the horses caught it. Mrs. Mophead, who was such a loner that no one knew her real name, undertook to plow her fields by hand. Her neighbours were astounded when, in the place of horses, they saw her hitched to a plow... by her locks!
Several people want to find a natural & better alternative to commercial shampoos, something that will not damage their hair by stripping away the scalp's natural oils and forcing them to wash their hair every single day! In fact, this is how the "no poo" movement was born!
