Good news, bad news...
First the good news...this completely cured my dry, itchy and sometimes very scabby scalp...and no more dandruff. I'm middle aged and with middle age my hair has thinned and I've developed a horrible scalp condition. It was awful for about 3 years until I discovered moo goo and now it is completely cured. I did wonder if this was coincidence so stopped using it for a week and the scabby scalp came back.
Now the bad news, I don't like the smell, it's a sickly sort of milk smell and I absolutely have to use the conditioner as the shampoo leaves ...
Amazing for dry scalp
I have tried many different shampoos over the years to treat my dry, ichy scalp and often ended up with scabs. I have been using Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner for over a year and it is the first product that has really managed to treat the problem - fabulous! I also love that it is all natural, Australian company and reasonably priced.
Made my scalp worse
Glad to see this works well for some just not me. I have seborrheic dermatitis and have never found a product that works. Sadly, MooGoo shampoo joins the list, made my scalp even worse. Big, thick scales after the first wash resulting in bloody scabs. Only plus is it does seem to make my hair quite soft but no good for my poor scalp which I really had hoped it would be good for due to the products spruik.
I found this miraculous stuff by accident. I have had psoriasis on my scalp for the past 6 years and assumed that this was something that I would just have to live with forever. Then one day I woke up and my head was almost totally clear. No scaly white flakes, no itchiness, no discomfort. It was like I was completely cured. At first I thought some magical spell had been cast, then I realised that I had borrowed a friend's shampoo and conditioner the night before (moo goo shampoo and conditioner). I haven't had results like this with anything else, and I have tried it all. I have since gone and bought myself a 6 month supply.
Did not work for me
I have been using the shampoo for months and my hair has never looked so bad. Has sent my hair really thin and have a few areas where I am almost bold. My hair was not like this before and had a bit of thickness to it. My hair has never been great but this has made it x10 worse. I really wish I had never used this as it has made me really depressed and has shattered any confidence I had.
It works for me, love it
I was reading this reviews and decided to write one as well because I was surprised about some very negative reviews. First of all I tried over the years hundreds of products and almost ended up to use regular steroids to stop my head from itching and then flaking and building up very unpleasant rashes. I started with the shampoo and it worked from day one, I love the smell and I recon it foams actually a lot. I can confirm that the hair is drying out a bit but the conditioner works perfect. I trust this brand and the only negative thing I would like to mention is the price. I would prefer if they would spend less on packaging and pamphlets to drop the price. P's love the soap as well, it is amazing how soft it keeps the skin.
Where've you been all my life, MooGoo?
I'm 54 and have always suffered from itchy scaly scalp since I can remember , the climate in Melbourne doesn't help (I was an eczema kid most of my childhood) and I have my hair coloured regularly 'cos' there's no way I'm not covering my greys!!
I ended up using Neutrogena TGel for way longer than I should have....it soothed the scalp but I had thinned considerably, which worried me.
I googled and googled and found MooGoo's website. I had to try the MooGoo shampoo & conditioner, so I started 2 months ago and am so thankful that I've foun...d something free of chemicals and after my second time using it, have not looked back, I hardly think about my scalp now which is a first for me.....thank you so much MooGoo, I am spreading the word!!!!

Adore these products.
Finally found a product that does what it says on the pack. I adore the shampoo and conditioner. Also love the balm for eczema. Love the moisturisers too. Yummy lip balm. I know some products don't work for everyone but they do wonders for me!
Drying and makes your hair like straw
I looked for a gentler natural alternative for my curly/wavy hair which loves protein and hates SLS. I heard great things about moogoo and so i decided to fork out the $20 to try it. At first it wasn't so bad, it leaves your hair a tangled retched mess until you condition afterwards. But then its like magic, your hair goes to being like silk! I was happy... UNTIL
because it doesn't lather at ALL you have to spot wash your head. You can't just throw it on your hands and mush it into your head because the shampoo just will not spread or foam to ...
Nearly went bald.
Both my son and I suffered extreme hair loss when using their shampoo and conditioner. We both had very thick fine hair. Our hair has never returned to the previous thickness. The products smelled ok and the expiry date was far in advance. The company's response was to send us some free shampoo and conditioner !! If I could give them zero that would be too high a rating. Be very wary.
Saves my Scalp
I have a very sensitive scalp. It doesn't flake, but gets very red and itchy. All supermarket brands irritate it, so I go for the alternatives. I also have to keep changing shampoos and have had a lot of hits and misses. Moo Goo is one of the hits. It lathers well, feels good on my scalp and it doesn't make me itchy. My hair seems fine with it and I can go longer between washes. Undoubtedly I will need to change once the bottle is empty, just seems par for the course with me, but I will go back to it in due course.
I would not recommend moo goo shampoo. I suffer from psoriasis really bad in head I thought by using the shampoo it would work wonders but it has made my scalp ten times worse. I'm so disappointed with all the products in the moo goo range.
Great results but better with the conditioner
The shampoo has improved by scalp considerably. It smells wonderful. It doesn't lather well which I think is because they refuse to use potentially harmful lathering products - you learn to handle the different lathering ability quickly. I found it worked much better with the conditioner. I need to wash my hair a day earlier then I did with other shampoos but I also don't get dry hair.bI use this product on my 21 month old son and it works well with his baby hair.
I can't believe it took me this long to find MooGoo Shampoo
I am 45 and have had seborrheic dermatitis ever since I was a kid - scaly flaky mess over most of my scalp - it would come and go in varying degrees of severity but was never completely gone. Nizoral medicated shampoo would control it reasonably well, but if I tried a new hair product (god forbid anything with wax or any sort of oil in it) I had a good chance of a massive breakout. H&S did absolutely nothing for me. With the weather getting colder (winter is the absolute worst for seborrheic dermatitis), I searched online for something differen...t that may actually work and found testimonials on MooGoo Milk Shampoo. I've been using it for about a week now....wow what a difference! All of the scaling is gone, flakes are almost completely gone, no itching, and my hair already feels healthier and has a natural moisture that would typically cause further breakout (Nizoral dries it out so bad). This stuff really is amazing - thank you MooGoo.
My holy grail
For years I suffered from a severe dry scalp which looked like a terrible case of dandruff. I went to naturopaths and even psychologists as it was suggested my condition that flared up on my scalp could be linked to my emotions.
I decided to give Moogoo a try – I came across it many years ago and it changed my life. As soon as I started using their shampoo and conditioner my scalp condition went down and it didn’t take long before it disappeared completely. I believe I had a mild form of psoriasis on my scalp and any sort of sulfate would a...ggravate it. To get a good wash try tipping your head upside down and making sure the shampoo reaches the under-part of your hair. My hair is so silky and so healthy.. healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp! I am a firm believer in Moogoo and would recommend the shampoo and conditioner to everyone!!! Thank you Moogoo!!!
Long time fan
I have loved this product for years, sometimes I stray to other sulfate free brands but always come back to it. My children and my dogs get washed in it too, it is truly wonderful stuff.
For those that have trouble getting a lather, shake the bottle and wash a second time. I have no issue getting a lather after shaking the bottle, I do find some other SLS free brands don't give as good bubbles.
I am allergic to anything that has sulfates, regular shampoo give me dermatitis all over my scalp and hairline. No such irritation with the moogoo shampoo and conditioner.
Doesn't work for me
I use and would recommend a number of other MooGoo products, however I have found this shampoo disappointing.
It leaves my family's hair feeling as though there is a residue and hair catches. When washing my daughters very long hair, it is a difficult process to distribute the shampoo to achieve clean scalp and hair. I won't be finishing the bottle.
Finally no scaly scalp
I suffer from allergies, and had a scaly scalp as a child through to adulthood. My scalp itched constantly. I did use a well known anti-dandruff shampoo, believing I had dandruff, but one day after accidentally mixing it up with a face cleanser and rubbing it on my face, i realized it made my face burn, it really hurt, so I decided to find something gentler. I was given a sample of Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner at a talk by a Naturopath. I have not looked back since. I no longer ever have a scaly scalp. I can't believe I put up with it for y...ears and years. Obviously I have long been allergic to something in every other shampoo. Because Moo Goo shampoo is gentle, the first application doesn't lather much, but the second application lathers up well, then I follow it with the conditioner. I once forgot to use the conditioner and my hair was very hard to brush and blow dry. Kind of 'squeaky'. I really believe anyone who has had an itchy scalp for a long time with no other diagnosis should try this. It can't hurt. It isn't cheap but the bottle lasts quite a while, if you can't find a supplier, you can buy it from the Moo Goo website.
One and only!
I have super sensitive skin and scalp ( severe dermatitis for the last ten years or so) Prior to using moo goo shampoo it got to the stage where it was constantly itchy, flakey and inflamed - scalp, forehead, skin around my nose..irritating and VERY unsightly. A friend recommended moo goo ( her GP suggested using it!) and two weeks after I started - the itch was completely gone. Unlike other anti dandruff/dermatitis medicated shampoos this one feels and smells lovely (very faint clean smell).
I can't recommend it enough, I got my confidence b...
Gentle but extreme knots!
I have a very sensitive scalp and after lots of testing, it was revealed I was allergic to multiple fragrances. I was recommended to switch to shampoos with minimal ingredients and no fragrances. I tried the Moogoo shampoo and conditioner. They are both very gentle and smell nice. The shampoo lathers well, however, it is extremely hard to spread it through your hair and across your scalp. So I'm finding I have to apply shampoo to one area, then to another etc etc and try and join it with lathering. As soon as the shampoo touches your hair, you ...get nothing but crazy knots! You CANNOT use this shampoo without the conditioner. With that said, the conditioner is amazing! As soon as you apply it and you must apply it from roots to tips to get rid of the knots, it removes all knots with ease. For me, I do notice that it's gentler and I have less itching, however the itching is not totally gone, so I'll be trying something else. Plus with the knotting, I just think it's worth trying something else. The shampoo and conditioner smell lovely, moderately priced. Conditioner is brilliant! Shampoo gives extreme knotting!
