Hola Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is well with everyone.
Ok, so I know many of you have asked about the products that I use, so I will begin doing product reviews along with everything else that I talk about.
Today, I really want to speak on the Avalon Organics Olive & Grapeseed Extra Moisturizing Conditioner. I decided to give it a try because I listed it as one of the products to buy for under $10.
So, here's what the product claims:

My View On This Product
I loved the fact that it is free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, fragrance and it uses 100% vegetarian ingredients, which means the ingredients are all plant based. The bottle is also made from 100% recycled material..yippee. And no animal testing. The price was amazing @ $5.09 for 11oz
Now I used this as a co-wash (conditioner wash) and as a leave in. I absolutely LOVE it!! I could feel the softness in my hair..IMMEDIATELY! It is an excellent detangler and provides a lot of slip. This was actually the product that I used when I did a natural hair demonstration for a cosmetology class. And the moisture was on point. I love the fact that 'water' is the first ingredient..a natural gal needs moisture. I don't know why I held out this long in trying this product. Well, I know why, I am not a product junky, so I try to stick to products that work for me. Since I've moved to Tennessee, none of the Targets carry my ever so faithful SheaMoisture products and I was tired of ordering online with the shipping costs..sistas on a budget, you know!! So, I cruising the product isle in GreenLife Grocery (or Whole Foods) and I saw it, read the ingredients, and I loved the price $$$. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by how it made my hair feel and how much slip it provided in regards to detangling. I also used it on my 5 year and 2 year old..same results and one has coarse hair, the other fine hair.
So, bottom line, I would recommend, and yes, it lives up to exactly what it says it will do.
Happy Healthy Hair
