In spring and summer I need more than just clean hair. I want to feel it energized and refreshed, that’s why I like using products with peppermint when it’s warm outside.
I've known about Avalon Organics for a long time. I was excited only about one product, the others either didn’t impress me or I didn’t like them at all, but I decided to give the brand one more chance and purchased Avalon Organics Strengthening Peppermint Shampoo at iHerb.com.
Volume: 325 ml
Manufacturer: Avalon Organics.
Part 1. Product details.

How does it work?

Part 2. Packaging and content.
The shampoo comes in a good quality dark plastic bottle. You can find the product information on the stickers both on the front and on the back of the bottle.
It has a black convenient press cap, which opens and closes without fuss.
The shampoo is neither thick nor watery, it’s more like liquid and very good to use. The texture is transparent with a hint of yellow.
It smells intensely like peppermint. It’s such a nice and not off-putting scent!
Part 3. My experience
I’m 35 years old and have thick dyed hair of medium length. It’s greasy at the roots, so I have to wash it every day. Besides, I always try to repair my split ends.
1. The shampoo is very easy and convenient to use. I won't say that it’s a little goes a long way in comparison to most of the common shampoos, but it is as opposed to other natural hair care products.
2. It lathers into a rich foam really well and rinses my hair thoroughly.
My experience with Avalon Organics Strengthening Peppermint Shampoo:
➀ I liked this shampoo more than Avalon Organics Clarifying Lemon, but it couldn’t beat Avalon Organics Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening.
➁ The shampoo is worth well a try! It has no supernatural properties, though. It lathers well and rinses my hair properly. Moreover, the scent is amazing! All in all, the product is good for everyday use. I can smell peppermint all over my bathroom and the fragrance braces me well. However, it's not so odorous on my hair, but I guess, it’s because I use a conditioner of another brand.
➂ Lucky me, I don’t suffer from dandruff, but my husband does! So sometimes I ask him to wash his hair with my shampoo to check if it causes this “snow on hair”. This time I didn’t even have to ask him for it, as he started using it himself, having seen the word "peppermint" on the bottle. To cut a long story short, he loved it and no dandruff appeared!
I’m glad I bought this shampoo, and I'm about to repurchase it. I highly recommend the product!
I hope you find my review helpful!
Be healthy and beautiful! Take care!
