June Open Days

Get ready for summer with a suite of hair care products designed to cleanse & condition, nourish & nurture, pamper & protect your curls, coils and locs!

 

One of the things that has set Almocado apart from other natural brands, is the fact that we make all our products by hand in our very own kitchen/lab; and this weekend we’re opening the doors to the public as part of a wider “Open Studios” event with our neighbours here at Thames-side.

We’re located in Unit TB11, in Telegraph Building via The Atrium. There’ll be plenty of signs up and there are video clips of how to find us on our Facebook page, but you can always ring us on 0203 633 3449 if you think you’re lost.

In addition to the opportunity to see where your products are being made, you’ll be able to receive guidance on which product/product combinations are best for your hair and make purchases at discounted rates.

If you’d like to take advantage of one of our private hair consultations please email appointments@almocado.com with your preferred time slot and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Each £25 consultation comes with a gift voucher redeemable in store or online, so you can share the love by gifting it to a friend if you prefer.

We’ll also be debuting our “Loc Love” kits in collaboration with Kawaii Adornments and Kai Personal Designs. Each kit contains a full sized bottle of our Stage 1 Seaweed Shampoo (Limited Edition – Pear fragrance), handmade stirling silver loc jewellery and a beautiful authentic headwrap. You can preorder yours here (wrap colours vary).

Day 6

Does your hair seem to soak up products like a thirsty teenager after football practice? I’d like to suggest adding the Almocado CocoCurl Moisture cream to your regime.

Organic Cocoa Butter is one of the most occlusive natural ingredients available. It helps prevent TEWL (transepidural water loss) which means it locks in moisture like a boss! This makes our Coco Curl, the perfect moisturising cream for thirsty multi-textured hair.

This non-greasy cream that wraps each strand in a nourishing blanket of organic ingredients for soft, protected and moisturised hair. Coco Curl is hand blended and specially formulated to deliver the right balance of moisture, protein, nutrients and LOVE, leaving you with delightfully bouncy, soft curls.

Try it this way to use is as part of your LCO method:

Start with the Silk Spritz (L), then apply CocoCurl (C). Once your strands are protected and you’re happy with the level of moisture you can further seal in all the goodness with a light coating of organic oils (like Coco Monoi) or a layer of our delightful organic Buttermelt (O).

Day 5

Looking for a conditioning hair masque packed with organic goodness and herbal essences to strengthen hair and encourage growth? I got you ! Consider pairing this with our Mint shampoo and cuticle closing Moisture Mist.

18% off today only with anniversary code “8YEARS”

Our Herbal Hair Masque starts with organic lavender and organic Bay Essential Oils for a true aromatherapy experience.

Organic Rosemary, Sage, Peppermint have been selected for their rubefacient (stimulating) qualities and have long been used by traditional herbalists to treat hair loss and improve the condition of the scalp.

Horsetail (the herb) is a natural hair conditioner and growth aid used to strengthen the hair. It is rich in silica which helps to strengthen weak, brittle and damaged hair – by filling in the damaged spots hair begins to look shinier and healthier over time. It’s stimulating properties help improve circulation locally, thereby nourishing the follicles.

Bamboo Extract is another silica rich ingredient and along with its protective, antioxidant properties it can help improve strength, sheen and elasticity of the hair. It is also thought to help address hair loss, shedding and thinning and increase hair growth.

Nettle Leaf is another herb traditionally used to treat hair loss, it can be drunk as a tea or massaged into the scalp here it also aids in hair re-growth as it is rich in silica and sulphur. It can also help make hair shinier and healthier.

Often considered a “protein shake for your locs”, Seaweed is rich in fatty acids, minerals and vitamins which help strengthen and promote thicker hair. According to “Alive: Canadian Journal of Health & Nutrition,” omega-3 fatty acids feed hair follicles to stimulate growth, and iron and zinc maintain hair production. We use Seaweed in our Stage 1 Shampoo and here in this stimulating herbal hair treatment.

You can use it as you would any deep conditioner but – to get the most out of the treatment – focus a bit more on your roots and scalp than before lightly coating the ends.

You can leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing but its extra lush and deep conditioning if  you can wrap your hair with a warm towel, cling film or a plastic bag and leave it on for half an hour mins (Longer if you prefer).

When rinsing continue to work the applied product into / through your ends as you go.

Day 4: Product of the Day

Today’s PRODUCT OF THE DAY is the Intense Moisture Masque!
Castor Oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, is high in vitamin E, proteins and fatty acids (Omega 6 and 9) which can penetrate the hair follicles. This moisture mask combines organic Castor, Coconut and Avocado oil to replenish thirsty hair.
Over a period of around 6 months, I tweaked and tested this thicker, more intense conditioner on natural, relaxed hair and microlocs; and since launching in September 2017, it has become one of our best sellers. The product has great slip and melts into curls and locs, rinsing clean without any grey residue.
The key to it’s use is using LESS than you think. If the product is sitting in a white creamy pile on top of your hair – it’s not penetrating anymore (i.e. your hair is saturated) and applying more product means the extra product will just end up down the drain when you rinse it away.

Day 3: Product of the Day

I was challenged to create this product by the beautiful vlogger HuntressLocs, who is a fan of Almocado products and wanted a lighter version of what used to be known as the ‘Luscious Lecithin Leave-in’.

So with Sisterlocks, Microlocs and interlocked hair in mind, I set about creating a formula that would impart moisture without weight; feel silky but not sticky and give locked hair a light hydrating replenishing treatment.

Not only has this product been a hit with locked hair, it’s loved by multiracial textures because it imparts silky moisture while retaining the natural bounce.

Meadowfoam seed oil is formed of long-chain fatty acids which make it super moisturising but non-greasy, it adheres to the hair shaft,  adds shine and contains some antioxidants. Blended into this is Argan oil – also known as ‘liquid gold’ used by Moroccan women for healthy and vibrant hair. This leave in conditioner also helps reduce breakage by keeping your strands hydrated.

As part of our 8th anniversary celebration we’re offering 10% plus 8% i.e. a whopping 18% off this product of the day until midnight on April 12th 2018. Just enter code “8YEARS” at the checkout.
