Buttermilk, a natural pro-biotic full of lactic acid, is found in many beauty products and is fabulous for softening, brightening and exfoliating skin. Lactic acid is also used to treat age spots and freckles and to tighten skin. Olive oil, organic jojoba oil, and mango butter, with their emollient properties, round out this beauty treatment for your hair and body. Lavender has countless benefits for skin and scalp due to its antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. It is used to treat skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammations. The vanilla adds a warm, creamy sweetness to the lavender essential oil making this a calming, dreamy, unforgettable scent.

Lavender Buttermilk and Bamboo are my two favorite scents that I have tried. (least favorite is the Bella Rose) Lavender Buttermilk not only has a soothing scent, but left my hair so soft and full of body. Not an easy task for fine, dry hair. As well, my kids keep stealing this one from me for their hair. My daughter says it's because it makes her smell like a princess!
I've become sort of biased to Apple Valley products. So far I like everything I've tried. I like this one but wish it had a bit more of a lavender smell (just a personal thing). It does smell good though and lathers well with a long lasting smell. I will be buying it again.
I was cautious at first about trying this one. I normally can't stand the smell of lavender essential oil at all so I wasn't sure how I would like this. Oh my goodness, this one is one of my favorites; a top 3 to be exact. It lathers better than any. I had no problem brushing my long hair and it made my hair feel and look great.
I don't know why, but this bar seems to lather the best out of the several varieties that I've tried from AVNS. Its scent also seems to last in my hair, which is awesome! Even after the ACV spritzes, you can still smell lavender. I think this is going to become my go-to bar.
I have long fine hair, without the use of "product" my hair is often just limp... this bar gives a wonderful result.. My clean dry hair has body and feels amazing! I used the Lavender Buttermilk on top and used the Jojoba Silk on the ends with a luxurious result!
To me, this shampoo bar is perfect in every way for my fine,thick hair. It lathers wonderfully, smells delicious, leaves my hair feeling conditioned, and gives my hair lots of volume and manageability when dry. I didn't even have flyaways or static in my hair while using this shampoo this winter! I purchased samples of almost every shampoo bar Apple Valley makes, and this one is my favorite.
So I have female pattern hair loss to where scalp is starting to show, even though I have wavy/curly/poofy hair type. I use this shampoo bar and let it sit on my scalp for a few minutes while I wash up. I don't know what it is about this formula but this is the only bar that makes my hair look and feel the thickest and I've tried all kinds of shampoo bars even from here! All of them have been put aside and I live for this one never to be changed! Great stuff and the scent is awesome too!
This is my favorite of all the shampoo bars. I love the scent and it seems to make my skin even softer than the other bars. I also use it on my hair. I bought several bars to give away as Christmas gifts.
I love the smell of this bar. I've been using this shampoo body bar for nearly two months now, and I feel my hair is more manageable. I read somewhere on this site that you shouldn't use it with hard water, which I have, but I use it anyway. Our water is filtered some, so I don't think its completely all hard water. I was hoping for a more luscious feel for my hair, but I think I don't get that due to the semi-hard water I have. Also, when I use the bar to do a quick wipe of my private lady parts (just a quick surface brush, not washing inside) my lady area stings afterward. Not sure the reason why.
I LOVE this shampoo bar! I tried it and only had a week transition from shampoo to this. I love the smell - it is just indescribable. It makes my bathroom smell great too! I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars though because of the fragrance added. I know and trust that it is a minute amount, but I will wait until there isn't any to repurchase. Love AVNS for being upfront about it. I want this in the jojoba oil too - it's that good!
