I tried this shampoo and conditioner a while ago hoping it to replace my John Masters Organics hair care products. I have oily scalp but dry hair so it is tricky to choose hair product. John Masters Organics makes my holy grail shampoo and conditioner and I will post a review soon. JMO is great but they are bit too expensive for me to keep purchasing. I use up 1 bottle/month and their shampoo and conditioner all cost around CA$20. These Avalon Organics products usually cost around CA$13-15 each at local drug stores in Vancouver, but they are on sale for CA$10 or cheaper sometimes so I bought it when it was on sale.

Long story short, I didn’t really like them. I think the shampoo was pretty good. It lathered nicely and made my scalp feel very clean. Because of the cleaning power, it did make my hair more stiff and tangly. The problem was the conditioner: it did not make my hair smooth enough. Although it is Lavender “Nourishing” line, I felt like the conditioner was little bit thin. It doesn’t feel thin on your hand but as soon as you put it on your hair, it seem to just disappear. Part of the problem is probably because my hair strands are quite thick so the conditioner could not fully saturate my hair. It might work for people with thinner softer hair.

Although it did not work out for me, it smelled great and I like organic shampoos. Avalon Organics has great selection so I would like to try their other line such as Olive Oil & Grape Seed Extra Moisturizing Fragrance Free line (omg that is a really long name!).

Oh and 1 other thing is I didn’t like the bottle… it’s OK in the beginning but it’s so hard to squeeze products out at the end.

My final rating: 2.5/5
