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.

18% off today only with anniversary code “8YEARS”

Our Herbal Hair Masque starts with organic lavender and organic Bay Essential Oils for a true aromatherapy experience.

Organic Rosemary, Sage, Peppermint have been selected for their rubefacient (stimulating) qualities and have long been used by traditional herbalists to treat hair loss and improve the condition of the scalp.

Horsetail (the herb) is a natural hair conditioner and growth aid used to strengthen the hair. It is rich in silica which helps to strengthen weak, brittle and damaged hair – by filling in the damaged spots hair begins to look shinier and healthier over time. It’s stimulating properties help improve circulation locally, thereby nourishing the follicles.

Bamboo Extract is another silica rich ingredient and along with its protective, antioxidant properties it can help improve strength, sheen and elasticity of the hair. It is also thought to help address hair loss, shedding and thinning and increase hair growth.

Nettle Leaf is another herb traditionally used to treat hair loss, it can be drunk as a tea or massaged into the scalp here it also aids in hair re-growth as it is rich in silica and sulphur. It can also help make hair shinier and healthier.

Often considered a “protein shake for your locs”, Seaweed is rich in fatty acids, minerals and vitamins which help strengthen and promote thicker hair. According to “Alive: Canadian Journal of Health & Nutrition,” omega-3 fatty acids feed hair follicles to stimulate growth, and iron and zinc maintain hair production. We use Seaweed in our Stage 1 Shampoo and here in this stimulating herbal hair treatment.

You can use it as you would any deep conditioner but – to get the most out of the treatment – focus a bit more on your roots and scalp than before lightly coating the ends.

You can leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing but its extra lush and deep conditioning if  you can wrap your hair with a warm towel, cling film or a plastic bag and leave it on for half an hour mins (Longer if you prefer).

When rinsing continue to work the applied product into / through your ends as you go.

Gets yours before MIDNIGHT
