It seems as though once the warm weather hits and when we’re on the brink of summer, the days fill up so quickly and the weekends FLY by! The past couple of weekends Justin and I have been working long days out in the yard and while we both love getting outside and getting our hands dirty, it also tires us right out!
Generally, before the weekend officially wraps up (and before we have to get back to the work week grind!) I like to lock myself in our bathroom and have a little snack in peace and quiet … lol!! Just joking!! I don’t have to do that QUITE yet … but I can imagine, once I have baby #2 this will probably become my reality … like many other mamas out there!
I do, however, like to spoil myself to a little “at home” spa session whenever I can. This includes a nice warm shower, a body scrub, and some nourishing shampoo and conditioner! This is also the time when I can multi-task and test out products like Avalon Organics Smooth Shine Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo and conditioner!
If you follow along with my blog, you’ll know that over the past year or so, I’ve been testing out Avalon Organics products and sharing my reviews with you and so far the results have been great! I find that their products go a long way and you only need to use a little at a time, their body lotions and shower gels spread really well and their shampoo lathers up really nicely! I love the fact that their products are certified organic, vegan, and free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, and colours AND their containers are biodegradable! Plus Avalon Organics shampoos and conditioners are now certified as EWG VERIFIED! I like
that added trust in knowing my haircare products are good for me, my family and the planet too!
Now, as for the Apple Cider shampoo and conditioner, I know what you’re probably thinking … “What in the world does that smell like?!” because that was my first initial thought as well!! So I kicked things off with a sniff test and I thought for SURE these would smell a bit like vinegar but I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn’t the case! Both the shampoo and conditioner have a nice subtle apple scent which I loved … and it totally reminded me of summertime in the Okanagan orchards!
So it turns out that apple cider vinegar is rich in vitamins and minerals and is great for helping to restore the natural pH balance of your hair! Hair that is brittle or dry tends to be higher on the pH scale. So, Avalon Organics Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo and conditioner actually helps to revive overworked hair and restore hair and scalp that has been chock full of product build up (here’s looking at YOU, hairspray!) by bringing it back to a normal pH level and in return, leaves your hair super shiny!!
With a medley of raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Nettle Extract, Argan and Babassu Oils, these key ingredients work together to clarify scalp and hair, and restore the hair shaft to smoothness!
Have you tried their Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo and conditioner yet?? If so, let me know what you thought of it below!
