As some of you may know or not know I follow the curly girl method of hair care and styling. What is the CGMethod? It's basically NO Silicones or Sulfates, Combs or brushes and No shampoo (natural or not) approach to hair care. What that means for me is always trying out a new natural conditioner for co-washing (conditioner wash) and conditioning the hair.
While visiting my sister I needed to cleanse my hair, not having my go to co-washing product I was in search for a conditioner and came across Avalon Organics Lavender Nourishing Conditioner which I had wanted to try for some time now.

What This Product Claims to do:Rich plant emollients plus nourishing , , , Guar and condition and nourish each hair strand for smooth, healthy-looking results.
Pros and Cons:
Pros: Amazing ingredients being used on the hair. Smells out of the world delicious! Light weight so my hair was very bouncy and big after.
Cons: Very little slip, unless I used a lot of product (and I mean a lot), The moisture I felt in my hair was only while product was in my hair once it was rinsed out so was the moisturized feeling.
For the price and ingredients I expected a better experience. Everyones hair is different so don't judge a product by my experience you might love it.. I won't be purchasing this again, However I will try awapuhi mango therapy deep moisturizing conditioner and olive grape seed extra moisturizing conditioner.
Have you tried any of the Avalon Organics Products? If so, what were your thoughts?
