Rhassoul Clay, mined from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, has been used for over 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner. It contains a high percentage of silica, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, and its extraordinary ability to absorb oil and impurities from both the skin and hair makes it more effective than other clays for cleansing. Avocado oil and avocado butter have a nutritive, soothing, softening effect on the skin and are especially beneficial for very dry, aging skin as it increases the production of collagen. Avocado is a natural humectant which locks in moisture, while fatty acids give hair shine and silky texture. Avocado oil is a natural solution to replenish chemically treated hair with the nourishment it needs to recover and flourish. Frizzy hair also benefits from avocado oil, as it relaxes chaotic strands.
We also decided to add some aloe to this bar, why? Well, Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It's fabulous for skin because it's rich in vitamin C, E and beta carotene which nourishes skin and scalp deeply. Also, due to its antifungal and antiviral properties, it prevents itching and reduces dandruff and flaking, it also has very potent anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce redness and inflammation. As for the essential oils in this shampoo bar, they start with a juicy, invigorating, citrus blend with a hint of old world bergamot to give it a mature ending. Needless to say, put that all together and you have a wonderful shampoo and body bar!

I have hair with a good amount of wave. This works good for my hair, but I have to use the vinegar as a rinse with our hard water. The scent is a favorite of mine. Even my husband like the scent!
A while back, I went "no-poo", then stumbled on shampoo bars. My hair has always been stringy, greases easily, and becomes lifeless. I tried a few of the suggested bars for these issues, plus I have over active sebum glands that cause all sorts of problems, and this bar is the best! The life is back, I can go 2-3 days w/o feeling totally nasty, and my scalp issues are better! Thank you for a wonderful product!
My first order of AVNS arrived today and I'm already in love! I tried the Rhassoul and Avocado shampoo bar first (with a vinegar rinse) and I'm thrilled with my hair so far. Previously, I had been washing my hair with super diluted Baby Mild Castile soap, but I'm officially a convert now. This soap gets my hair clean without leaving it feeling like crunchy doll hair. And the shine is fantastic. I do imagine that if I hadn't already ditched commercial shampoos that there would be more of a transition for me, but even still, this product is a great one. Not too heavy, not drying, just right.
Really like this one too! Smells great and lathers great! Hair is shiny and soft and scalp is very happy!
I gave this bar to hubby to use. He is happy, and says so! (he usually doesn't have a definitive answer regarding opinion). We both like the idea of dumping all the bottles and such out of the bathroom .... finally.
This is the third shampoo bar I've purchased to use for myself.. and I LOVE it. It is by far my favorite. It smells AMAZING, so clean and lovely. I particularly love the way it makes my hair look and feel. MY scalp which is usually dry and flakey, feels amazing, and did I mention it smells DIVINE?!
When I ordered this, I didn't really know what to expect. It sounded like an interesting bar and today I tried if for the first time and wow am I glad I did. It lathered up like they all do and had a citrusy smell to it. I think this is my new favorite.
I think this scent has become my new favorite! I always make sure to get a bar or two every time I place an order!
Use this for my hair only and absolutely love it. I've tried 3 bars so far and this is my favorite. Hair feels really clean and my frissys are under control.
I've used all sorts of shampoos, but this bar is one that I really love. It leaves my hair squeaky clean and shiny! I plan to continue to use this wonderful product.
