Toronto | 2 days ago

I have mature locs, over 10 yrs, and I do regular co washes. This I would try this product for a change. First time this morning! The scent is definitely lingering, I like -fresh smell! Easy to use, good lather, and easy to wash out. I'd recommend for those that have natural hair, natural locs. Thumbs up from me!

I was excited to try this when it came out last year then even more excited when it smelled great and made my hair feel moisturized and soft. I use this on my sons hair as well. Last month I decided to let my hair loc, I did some pretty small twists and have had them in since. I was concerned about washing my hair with the twist in since id never done it before. Happy to say that the process was seamless and this product is perfect. I briefly fell into the advice and product recommendations from other women with locs then decided to stay true to what I had already been doing to my hair because the results are consistent. I purchased every single product that was released for black hair care when they came out. The combination of products including this one has helped me to cultivate and maintain three super healthy and hydrated heads of hair.

It lathers up just enough to feel like its going somewhere. Feels fresh and luxurious, I think I will be keeping it stocked in my shower.

Amazing on my thin hair

I have been using this product for 10 daya and it is AMAZING. I have slightly curly and very thin hair. The scent is amazing and my hair have never been smoother or shine so bright. I am in love with the avocato co-wash!

Amazing!

This is the greatest product I've ever found for washing and conditioning my hair. I have very fine, thin hair that usually starts to become greasy hours after washing. I've tried a variety of shampoos and conditioners but nothing worked well. This product cleanses my hair while leave it soft and full of body. It's not over stripping and providing the right amount moisture to keep my scalp happy and grease away. I was skeptical at first but this is great!

Not Sure What Other People Are Doing

This bar is amazing. It doesn't crumble, even after a month. It washes and moisturizes and is perfect for every other day washing or conditioning!

Orlando, Fl | 27 days ago

I have medium thickness waves/curls and I was worried that this would not condition well enough- wrong. It is perfect! I have not been able to find something that gives me moisture without weighing down my curls. Highly recommend. I use it 2-3x/wk with one additional normal wash day, and it has been great. I throw on some sea salt spray, let air dry, and I'm good to go!

My Hair Loves This

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-empty

NYC | 29 days ago

My hair has never felt so great between washings, my scalp has stopped itching, almost everything is better. Also it smells amazing. 1. The bar is best used by lathering your hands first and then putting your soapy hands in your hair, or sliding it across your hair in the direction of your strands. Rubbing it on your head like the other bars will cause a tangle and you will be sad. 2. I find that I actually apply it twice- once to the top of my head and one to the length of my hair. 3. The bar does come apart when it gets thin. This is annoying, but you can squish it back together. I've had a lot of success and been really happy with this product, but it required a bit of getting used to. It would be better if it weren't so brittle.

Fantastic scent, but makes my hair feel like straw

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty

Kansas City | 30 days ago

I went to the local Lush store to find a couple of favorite shampoo bars, but they were out of the ones I wanted. I had been thinking of trying the Avocado Co-Wash for awhile since it is marketed toward people with dry or curly hair. Since the shutdown, I cut off most of my dyed, heat-damaged hair in hopes of getting back my natural curls. I was using other Lush shampoo bars on my hair since they lather up and rinse out easily even in my city's hard water. I actually bought two bars of the stuff because I had such great results with Seanik, Jason and the Argan Oil, and Angel Hair. Sometimes I just like to change things up--a new scent for example. My curls did come back, and a bit of styling gel would keep them from completely frizzing out. However, the Avocado Co-Wash, despite the gorgeous citrusy scent, was rather disappointing and I had bought two bars! It doesn't lather quite as easily as the other shampoo bars I've tried. You have to really use several swipes directly onto wet hair, or try to rub off enough product into your hands to get a decent lather. It doesn't feel as if it rinses as cleanly as the other shampoo bars, either. Instead of a smooth, squeaky clean finish, my hair is left feeling like wet straw. My hair does fall into some very impressive curls but as it dries, it tends to poof out unless I put in a LOT of gel to basically freeze everything in place (and now I have a crunchy head). Following the co-wash with American Cream bar conditioner helps, but kind of defeats the purpose of a co-wash that is supposed to moisturize your hair while it cleans it. However, my bf thought that large green bar was soap and was using it to shower with. He said it was only decent soap I had in the shower! I won't buy this bar again unless he likes it for soap. I think my hair falls into the 3A category with some 2A in the back.

It's okay, but not my favorite

I have 4A hair texture. It smells really nice, and it lathers nicely. I do appreciate that it comes in a bar form. I don't feel any improved benefit from this product, as compared with other co-washes I have used in the past. I also wish it was not so expensive.
