HAIRCARE | Avalon Organics scalp treatment tea tree shampoo



The cure to my itchy scalp is tea tree oil, its the only solution to my problems. If you have been reading 

this blog for a long time, you would know that my scalp is problematic. Recently my scalp has been

acting up and silly me left my usual Giovanni triple tea tree shampoo in London #Verysmart. I have

been on the hunt for organic / natural hair and beauty products since I arrived Abuja. 

Anywoo Grand Square Stores carries about three different brands of Natural/Organic products. 

Avalon Organics was the only brand I was familiar with, fortunately for me they had the scalp 

treatment shampoo #excited. I have only tried the shampoo once but felt like I needed to blog about it.

The shampoo helped alot with the itch but it stripped my hair like no mans business. Fluffy felt dry and

over clean. The shampoo in my opinion is too strong even though it soothed my itch. For me, its a 

semi love relationship but I intend to add tons of coconut oil to the shampoo before I use it again. 

I will definitely recommend this shampoo to all hair types but if you have extremely dry hair, stay away

from this product. 

This post is all over the place but that's normal with me :).

HAIR | Deep conditioner *RESULTS*


This post is linked to HAIR | Deep conditioner combo post just incase your confused. 

The results from the deep conditioning I did last week was awesome, fluffy felt and looked better. For my Leave-in, I used curl junkies smoothing lotion mixed with Giovanni's Frizz be gone serum. A friend of mine was kind enough to send me the leave-in and i'm so grateful she did because its the best leave-in EVER. It leaves fluffy well moisturised, silky and soft. 

I decided to let my hair breathe for a week after I deep conditioned. O before I forget, I still do not blow dry fluffy because the heat in Abuja is intense and I feel like fluffy hates being blow dried (I do not even own a hand dryer).

HAIR | Deep conditioner combo

Hi ladies

I have decided to post more about the progress of fluffy ( if you are just joining us, my hair is called fluffy). Last year my goal was to get my hair as healthy as possible because after I dyed fluffy she suffered serious damage.

This year the goal is to retain length and moisturise more. I have never been a fan of moisturising my hair because the idea of applying oil/ grease on my scalp or hair was not working for me.

But I have discovered that if I deep condition my hair properly every week,I hardly have to moisturise during the week. Anywoo I'm talking too much (I apologize).

list of the products I used for my DC this weekend :

Shampoo: Giovanni 50:50 hydration and clarifying shampoo

DC mix :
1tsp | Vatika oil

2TSP | Shea moisture: Organic raw Shea butter : deep treatment masque

1tsp | sapote oil

Giovanni smooth as silk Xtreme: protein hair fusion

Giovannvi Nutrafix : hair reconstructor

I like to leave my DC in over night because I get better results that way. Fluffy and I have gone through the trial and error phrase, so I know exactly what works for us.

Find out the end results of my DC in my next post
