Shampoos: with or without essential oils.

Almocado has a wide range of products for textured hair; and we have two shampoos which are specifically formulated for interlocked and natural hair:
 
Stage 1 (original) and Stage 1 Peppermint Tea – both of which share the same Seaweed and Algae based formula rich in hair loving vitamins and minerals.

The Original one contains an allergen free fragrance (and smells like Caribbean Sunshine) ; while the other contains organic essential oils: Rosemary, Peppermint and Tea Tree – the combination of which gives a tingling sensation to the scalp. If you are sensitive to any of these oils, or indeed if you are pregnant, we suggest that you choose the Original Formula.
 
Our ethos is to be as kind to you and to the earth as possible, so we don’t use high foaming agents that might strip or damage your hair.
 
Both shampoos contain ecofriendly natural cleansers which means that in some locations, depending on your water hardness, they will be low sudsing.
 
The shampoos are concentrated so don’t keep adding more shampoo in an attempt to get more suds – you’ll just be wasting the product. You can also ‘stretch’ the shampoo or make it milder by diluting it with water in a spray bottle and spraying it directly onto your locs/scalp.
 
We’ve included pics of our new and old labelling so you can tell the difference between the products.

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 4: Product of the Day

Today’s PRODUCT OF THE DAY is the Intense Moisture Masque!
Castor Oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, is high in vitamin E, proteins and fatty acids (Omega 6 and 9) which can penetrate the hair follicles. This moisture mask combines organic Castor, Coconut and Avocado oil to replenish thirsty hair.
Over a period of around 6 months, I tweaked and tested this thicker, more intense conditioner on natural, relaxed hair and microlocs; and since launching in September 2017, it has become one of our best sellers. The product has great slip and melts into curls and locs, rinsing clean without any grey residue.
The key to it’s use is using LESS than you think. If the product is sitting in a white creamy pile on top of your hair – it’s not penetrating anymore (i.e. your hair is saturated) and applying more product means the extra product will just end up down the drain when you rinse it away.
