Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner


I have been trying to use more organic products in my life. The only problem is that's easier said than done. Truthfully, I probably only use about one organic product per year. Mainly because organic natural products are more expensive and a little harder to find. This was nicely priced. I paid a little more than four bucks per item. Not too bad.

Since I've been on a Lavender kick, I thought I would try this. Lavender is a nice relaxing smell and I wouldn't mind my hair smelling of it.

So I'll talk shampoo first. The shampoo is very thin and watery...but it makes a good lather. My only problem is that it smells like Lavender cleaning product. More like something I would mop my hair with than want my hair to smell like.

It doesn't dry my hair out, in fact my hair feels really moisturized when I got to rinse this out.

Now let's talk conditioner. The conditioner doesn't have that much scent. I suppose it's conditioning my hair but if it is I can't really tell. The texture is nice and thick..but it doesn't have much slip so I don't like detangling with it.

It doesn't really leave much scent in my hair. I can only smell it if I put my hair directly under my nose. I was hoping for a more lingering smell.
