I recently bought some MooGoo shampoo and conditioner as well as some scalp cream because I often have a very itchy scalp and nothing seems to work (including the prescription stuff from the doctor).

The good news is that I think it's great, the itching has settled quite a lot after only 4 uses, so I am expecting even better results the more I wash.

However, one of my 10 month old kittens (Torment by name) thinks I am using it just for her pleasure, so now she perches on the head rest part of my chair and pats, sniffs or tries to mouth my hair and scalp. huh.gif   The other one hasn't paid any attention to it, so I think I am safe as far as she goes (as long as I don't use Dr. Lewinn's hand cream, she (Echo) hates that, and spits and hisses when I use it). wink.gif   Torment also thinks that she should be allowed to lick the scalp cream from the tub, so I have to be really fast and/or sneaky when I use it.   biggrin.gif

Does anyone have any brilliant ideas about how to keep the kitten away from my head?  I do have a squirt bottle handy, but she just keeps coming back for another sniff/play, with either my head or the squirt bottle.  ph34r.gif

Interesting about the hand cream too.

Fizzy19 it smells beautiful.

FluffyOscar, I plan on getting more of the range when I can afford it.  I tried the body/hand cream and it is absolutely beautiful.  No greasy aftermath, and it keeps your skin feeling silky for hours.  biggrin.gif

Aaaahhh thanks you have just probably explained why my cat of 10 years has started to climb behind me on the couch and eat / nuzzle my hair as I use Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner !!!  

I too have a itchy scalp made worse after pregnancy...

I will try the other stuff as well now...

I don't think there is much else besides the spray of water or locking kitten out of bathroom??

Can I ask where do you buy this Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner?

I have terribly itchy scalp, some shampoos make it worse, but like you no treatment seems to work....I now have scabs on my scalp as I have scratched it too hard sad.gif

Help!!!

You can buy it online Lynn. moogoo.com.au. I found that Nizoral got the itching sorted (make sure you wash, rinse then wash again), and now I use moogoo to maintain it. There's nothing worse than an itching, bleeding scalp sad.gif

You can buy moogoo from their website, it is also in a lot of health food stores.

I LOVE moogoo, I've been using it for a few years now.

MooGoo is awesome. I bought a heap of stuff via their web site & they threw in free full sized (0.5L) bottles of Milk Wash (washes face hands body) plus tub of moisturizer (250ml). I was very impressed, great stuff too.

Dunno about kitty, strange she licks the scalp cream.

Do you put the scalp cream on your actual scalp? I thought it was for the hairline and T zone (according to the instructions). Have I been using it wrong all this time?

I really don't blame your cat one little bit I absolutely love the smell of the moogoo shampoo, DH becomes instantly more attractive to me when he uses it  wink.gif

I also use Moogoo. I have run out atm and had to make a huge order from Au (Moved to US last month). Can't wait to get my order!!! I get Eczema and find that using the shampoo and milk wash also helps in keeping rashes at bay (Use their creams too and scalp and nappy creams for DD).  Can't help with the cat situation tho... it does smell lovely. LOL

Thank you, I have just placed an order for Shampoo and Conditioner, plus the cream for My DDs dermatitis which she gets on her hands.

My DD had been using steroid cream for over 12 years....until I realised it thinned the skin. I have tried the non steroid creams but it just doesn't work, and DD hates the oily and greasy ointments. I hope this helps her.

Anyone tried this?

No, just around the hairline, ears, eyebrows (whole other story) and t-zone, which is actually where you are meant to put it according to the packaging.  The shampoo and conditioner of course, cover my whole scalp.

I buy it at a small health store and/or chemist in my local area, and despite this being a tourist area, it's actually cheaper for me to buy it that way  rather than from the website.  blink.gif

I put the scalp cream on my kids scalp thickly to deal with CC (even at 3-7yrs).

Moo Goo is great - After spending a fortune on laser treatment etc trying to deal with rosacea and having little success, I started using moo goo when I got pregnant. Now you wouldn't even notice my redness (I sound like an add!).  I also use it on my kids for their eczema and it has done wonders. Oh, and the lip balm - magic!

I think I'll have to give the shampoo and conditioner a try.

Yes Lynn, have been using Moo Goo MSM Soothing for years for DD's eczema.  We hardly have to use the steroid ointment anymore.   We also use the Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash.

Just had a look in the website. Can you use it for dyed hair or will it make the colour go blergh.

I have just read the bottle and it says nothing about coloured hair.  However it is chemical free and uses 'plant derived mild cleansers'.  You could always send them an e-mail and ask about dyed hair, it's a valid question and I'm sure you're not the only person who wonders about that.

I will do that. It is def heaps cheaper then the 250ml bottles of my salon stuff I buy plus DH has eczema and dermatitis and I think the treseme shampoo he squirts onto his hands could be a reason they are acting up for. I suspect due to DH's issues this bubba will most likely have sensitive skin at the very least.

I got some moogoo from Amcal.

Love it for moisturizing DD's dry skin.
