If you are a regular reader on The Happy Sage website you may have seen my article Is Silicone Bad for your Hair?

The answer is yes, and for many reasons. If you want a healthy scalp and hair that isn't dried out, limp and flat then you need to get in touch with your natural side as far as hair care products go. You may think that by using products like Frizz Ease and other main stream heavy duty hair conditioners that you are improving your scalp and hair condition, but would you believe that you are actually making the condition of your hair worse? I know, hard to believe isn't it?

Why not try going silicone free and see what benefits it can have for your hair and scalp? Most people worry that there are no decent silicone free natural hair care products out there, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Take a look at some of my silicone free product reviews:


If you haven't heard of Yarok before then you are not alone, neither had I until I came across their products last year when I was looking for more silicone free products to try out.

Yarok (which means 'green' in Hebrew) is a USA based brand run by Mordechai Alvow and sells a full range of hair care products. Their products have been developed from organic, wild-crafted or sustainable ingredients which nourish and feed the hair and scalp whilst improving the strength and quality of the hair. Luckily, you are able to get your hands on this product in the UK too!

I have been testing the Yarok Feed Your Roots Hair Mousse, said to greatly enhance volume and condition the hair. Read on for the Yarok Feed Your Roots Hair Mousse Review!

Yarok Feed Your Roots Hair Mousse Review

Feed Your Roots Hair Mousse is all natural, 100% vegan and is free of drying alcohol, sulfates and chemicals.

It is suitable for all hair types and promises to transform hair condition and add volume to damaged, lifeless, limp and thin hair. Well, what's not to like about that - although this can also act as a warning to me sometimes that a product will be heavy on fine hair and make it flat.

Let's have a look at the ingredients:

Yarok Feed Your Roots Mousse Ingredients

distilled vitamin enhanced water, non GMO corn or rice extract, organic vegetable glycerol, organic herbal extracts of blackcurrant, beetroot and blueberry, vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C (sourced from plants), organic coconut oil, xanthan gum (kosher and vegan), potassium sorbate (kosher and vegan), organic african black soap, vitamin A (plant sourced) and essential oils of rosemary and may chang.

So the ingredients look good, although I am a little sceptical about the benefits of vitamin enhanced water and it's not exactly clear which vitamins the water has been enhanced with. There is plenty of evidence that eating a diet rich in a variety of B vitamins can help hair health by increasing red blood cells, which in turn have been shown to help boost the health of hair follicles and support faster hair growth. There is slightly less evidence regarding applying these vitamins topically to the hair and scalp, however it has been shown that applying two different niacin (vitamin B3) derivatives to the scalp showed a statistically significant increase in hair fullness after 6 months. (A pilot study evaluating the efficiacy of topically applied niacin derivatives for treatment of female pattern alopecia. Draelos et al 2005).

How to use Yarok Feed Your Roots Mousse

The mouse comes in a pump and you need to give it a good shake first. Don't expect a ball of whipped mousse like you get from standard main stream hair care mousses. This comes out more of a flatter and liquid white foam. Put a few pumps into the palm of your hand (I use two which is more than enough for my short, fine hair) and then rub your hands together and apply the product to the hair, making sure that you get down to the roots.

Then, simply blow dry your hair to style, or if you have curly hair you can let it dry naturally or use a diffuser.

I blow dry my hair roughly all over first (and turn my head upside down for extra root volume) until the hair is mostly dry, and then section it and finish it off with a small brush. This method of drying saves your hair from extra heat damage.

You do get a LOT of volume with this product. Don't be tempted to apply more product, you don't need it and it may weight your hair down. Start with a small amount of foam and you can always add more.

What I noticed the most about this product is that it is not at all sticky, it doesn't make your hair crunchy or flaky and it really conditions the hair without being heavy and making it flat. It smells of the may chang oil which is a citrusy lemon smell which is very nice too. I also think that it has improved the condition of my hair over time as well.

I was so impressed with this product and the volume and condition that it gave my fine hair that I have just finished my second pump of it. One great thing is that you can get this product in two sizes. You can get a small 2oz/59ml pump for £14 which is great for travelling or buying to test the product out and you can also buy a larger 8oz/236ml pump for £26. I have had two of the larger sizes and they do last quite a long time.
