A little background first:
- I'm 41
- my hair is long, wavy, fine/medium texture, slightly oily scalp
- I live in the desert in New Mexico, but my hair started thinning some 10 years ago while living in rainy London, UK.
It works! As far as thinning hair is concerned, all I want is to keep my strands on top of my head, not on the floor, the pillow, around the bathtub. I've been to several doctors and the cause for my thinning hair is hormonal imbalance. Oral contraceptives were the only medication that helped, but now, trying to get pregnant, I had to stop with contraceptives and hair was falling all over the house again.
I bought this shampoo but really skeptical of its effectiveness. And lots of reviews complained about the smell. What I found out is:
- it has a fresh, herbal scent. I like it. It's a matter of taste only.
- as it's a treatment shampoo, I prefer to leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing out. I shampoo twice: first and very quickly using a deep cleanse Neutrogena shampoo. Then I apply Avalon, wrap my hair in a bun, and go about my shower routine, soap, shaving, whatever. I only rinse it out after at least 5 minutes. It gives a nice tingling sensation while it's on. Then I rinse it really well, apply a deep conditioner only to the length of my hair, and rinse it abundantly, with tepid/cold water. Whoever has thinning hair should NEVER wash it with hot water.
It works for me. Hair feels fuller, shinier and manageable. Use a gentle wooden comb, specially while it still damp. The difference is clearly noticeable.

I have thin/thinning hair and I read the reviews and decided to try this shampoo after my hair stylist recommended that I find a shampoo/conditioner with biotin that might make my hair more full. I wanted a shampoo without SLS, so I tried this one. It was very hard to get my hair clean and my scalp was left feeling oily and itchy. After trying to be very patient and going through a whole bottle of the shampoo/conditioner and then trying again with the next set I had to give up. I was getting scalp acne (even though I carefully wash my scalp) because it wasn't cleaning my hair and scalp enough and my head itched so badly I had to start using tea tree oil shampoo just to be able to sleep on my pillow without feeling itchy prickles all over. I think I developed an allergy to one or more of the ingredients or maybe it's just because it couldn't clean my hair. I switched back to Kiss My Face, and my hair is clean and scalp are clean again albeit a little dry (will I ever find the perfect shampoo?). Also, there was no improvement in hair loss or regrowth or fullness after months of being doggedly loyal to Avalon Organics' "thickening" shampoo/conditioner. Of course, Kiss My Face doesn't regrow hair either, at least it doesn't leave me with an itchy, oily scalp.

P.S. It smells kinda like medicine, and when you first get in the shower (after previously using this shampoo/conditioner) and start rinsing your dry hair, it smells like wet dog.

      The product smells horrible, it smells like a blend of mint and garbage! The moment i opened the bottle I had to put it at arms length to get it away from my nose. The thickening effect is zero, it makes hair feel gunky, and that filled-with-product feeling. Hair strands are all stuck together and doesn't wash out well.

        Comments about Avalon Organics Shampoo, Thickening, Biotin B-Complex, 14 fl oz:

        This shampoo is advertised for thickening and improving body, and it did neither. My fine hair seemed even more limp after using Avalon Organics as well as appearing dull and unable to hold any curl. It also smells terrible. The only positive was lathering well. It may work for other hair types, but I do not recommend this product for fine hair. I have had no success with "organic" products; they just cost more and don't deliver what they promise.

                I use this every day. It prepares my naturally thin and curly (frizzy hair) to receive conditioners. Alone with my hair it does not work, but with a good conditioner like RenPure Argan my hair is silky soft and managable. I still have to use a leave in conditioner to manage the curls.

                  I don't understand why it got such rave reviews, which was why I bought it to add volume to my thinning hair. I have used it for about 5-6 weeks, and I can say that it did more harm to my scalp and hair than any other shampoo I had ever used. It does add volume, but only for 12 hrs. or so, and then your hair would go limp and flat, not to mention the greasy scalp it fails to clean. Now I am using a medicated shampoo for my itchy scalp...I mean a shampoo should be able to clean your scalp, right? And it caused more hair loss because it leaves my hair super dry, like straw. I would not even recommend it to my enemy.

                        Avalon Organics Shampoo, Thickening, Biotin B-Complex

                         – If a green lifestyle appeals to you, Avalon Organics can help you extend this lifestyle into your hair care routine. Avalon Organics Shampoo, Thickening, Biotin B-Complex allows you to cleanse, nourish, and even enjoy fuller looking hair using several natural ingredients. With a commitment to a sustainable, green lifestyle, Avalon Organics products are both gentle and effective.

                        About Avalon Organics



                        The Avalon Organics philosophy is summarized by three simple words: Consciousness in Cosmetics. This guiding principle defines the company's commitment to developing pure, safe products. Five elements fall under this Consciousness in Cosmetics philosophy. First, purity and safety ensures that the company develops pure, natural, and organic products that are safe on the skin. Next, Avalon Organics strives for sustainability, meaning it chooses ingredients that benefit the soil, farmers, environment, and customers. The element of effectiveness calls for Avalon Organics to develop high-quality products that live up to their promises. Creating nourishing and enriching products promotes intimacy, the fourth element of Avalon Organics' guiding principle. Finally, the company upholds personal choice, meaning products are sensitive to customers' unique needs, including dietary and lifestyle decisions.

                        Organic Hair Cleansing



                        Each of these five elements was considered when developing Avalon Organics Shampoo, Thickening, Biotin B-Complex. This shampoo uses a formula that consists of biotin, saw palmetto, wheat protein, and vitamin E. In total, 70 percent of ingredients in this formula are organic, and 100 percent are vegetarian. Moreover, the formula is free of synthetic fragrances, sulfates, and parabens.

                        This unique blend of natural ingredients works to stimulate the scalp and help encourage healthy hair growth. Your hair can be stronger and more voluminous. This pH-balanced shampoo cleanses and nourishes each hair strand from the follicle down through the hair shaft. Fine, thinning hair can benefit from this volumizing product that strives to create thicker, softer, and fuller hair with primarily natural and organic ingredients.
