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!

If you've never used a solid shampoo bar in your hair, you may wonder "how do I do that?" It's easy. Just get your hair wet, take the bar and rub it all over your scalp and hair. Put the bar down and work it into a wonderful lather. You may find that the first time you use a shampoo/body bar in your hair it feels different. Using natural ingredients is not going to give you the same feeling chemically laden choices do because the natural oils are not being stripped away. In addition, your hair may require a transition process before it is fully free of all the other chemicals and residues from prior hair products. You can read more about this transition process HERE.

This shampoo bar was a nice surprise. I didn't know if I was going to like it because I have fine hair and some of the AVNS shampoo bars weigh my hair down leaving it dull. This one did a remarkable job of leaving it soft and clean.
I LOVE this soap! I ran out of it and used up others I had on hand and when it was time to stock up again, I ordered more. During that time I had a new love...the orange chamomile bar. While I still love that bar, it wasn't until I started back up using the Rhassoul and Avacado that I realized just how much I missed that bar. It makes me feel pretty when I come out of the shower knowing I smell both natural and feminine in a healthy way. My husband uses it too, so no fear for the guys, it works for them but not with an overpowering feminine scent. It's not too girly of a scent, just perfect for our family. This recipe is absolutely amazing, will not disappoint male or females. Thanks AVNS!!!!!***would LOVE LOVE this in a perfume scent***
Lightly scented, great lather! Great for problem scalps as well.
I absolutely love this shampoo bar! I have dermatitis and thinning hair I know the avocado and the clay are helping it and the clay makes my hair look thicker, which is what I desperately need with this thinning hair mess! NEVER DISCONTINUE THIS GEM!! Thank you!! Also my sister who doesn't have scalp issues hair feels and looks much better too!
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.
