How to Save Money with Every Order

 

 

June Open Days

Get ready for summer with a suite of hair care products designed to cleanse & condition, nourish & nurture, pamper & protect your curls, coils and locs!

 

One of the things that has set Almocado apart from other natural brands, is the fact that we make all our products by hand in our very own kitchen/lab; and this weekend we’re opening the doors to the public as part of a wider “Open Studios” event with our neighbours here at Thames-side.

We’re located in Unit TB11, in Telegraph Building via The Atrium. There’ll be plenty of signs up and there are video clips of how to find us on our Facebook page, but you can always ring us on 0203 633 3449 if you think you’re lost.

In addition to the opportunity to see where your products are being made, you’ll be able to receive guidance on which product/product combinations are best for your hair and make purchases at discounted rates.

If you’d like to take advantage of one of our private hair consultations please email appointments@almocado.com with your preferred time slot and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Each £25 consultation comes with a gift voucher redeemable in store or online, so you can share the love by gifting it to a friend if you prefer.

We’ll also be debuting our “Loc Love” kits in collaboration with Kawaii Adornments and Kai Personal Designs. Each kit contains a full sized bottle of our Stage 1 Seaweed Shampoo (Limited Edition – Pear fragrance), handmade stirling silver loc jewellery and a beautiful authentic headwrap. You can preorder yours here (wrap colours vary).

Day 6

Does your hair seem to soak up products like a thirsty teenager after football practice? I’d like to suggest adding the Almocado CocoCurl Moisture cream to your regime.

Organic Cocoa Butter is one of the most occlusive natural ingredients available. It helps prevent TEWL (transepidural water loss) which means it locks in moisture like a boss! This makes our Coco Curl, the perfect moisturising cream for thirsty multi-textured hair.

This non-greasy cream that wraps each strand in a nourishing blanket of organic ingredients for soft, protected and moisturised hair. Coco Curl is hand blended and specially formulated to deliver the right balance of moisture, protein, nutrients and LOVE, leaving you with delightfully bouncy, soft curls.

Try it this way to use is as part of your LCO method:

Start with the Silk Spritz (L), then apply CocoCurl (C). Once your strands are protected and you’re happy with the level of moisture you can further seal in all the goodness with a light coating of organic oils (like Coco Monoi) or a layer of our delightful organic Buttermelt (O).

Day 3: Product of the Day

I was challenged to create this product by the beautiful vlogger HuntressLocs, who is a fan of Almocado products and wanted a lighter version of what used to be known as the ‘Luscious Lecithin Leave-in’.

So with Sisterlocks, Microlocs and interlocked hair in mind, I set about creating a formula that would impart moisture without weight; feel silky but not sticky and give locked hair a light hydrating replenishing treatment.

Not only has this product been a hit with locked hair, it’s loved by multiracial textures because it imparts silky moisture while retaining the natural bounce.

Meadowfoam seed oil is formed of long-chain fatty acids which make it super moisturising but non-greasy, it adheres to the hair shaft,  adds shine and contains some antioxidants. Blended into this is Argan oil – also known as ‘liquid gold’ used by Moroccan women for healthy and vibrant hair. This leave in conditioner also helps reduce breakage by keeping your strands hydrated.

As part of our 8th anniversary celebration we’re offering 10% plus 8% i.e. a whopping 18% off this product of the day until midnight on April 12th 2018. Just enter code “8YEARS” at the checkout.
