Facebook Live Sessions – Sundays at 8pm

We’ve decided to do a Live stream so you can have more immediate access to Annette, our resident Sisterlocks Consultant, Product formulator and Aromatherapist.

This is a replay of our first Sunday Session using Facebook Livestream, recorded on March 10th 2019.

It’s about an hour long and we cover the following topics:

  • changed branding –
  • changed packaging
  • steaming and conditioning mature locs
  • diluting shampoos
  • managing dry or itchy scalp (not medical scalp conditions) –
  • protecting your locs while sleeping – using apple cider vinegar –
  • handling lint and buildup


Any products mentioned can be purchased at almocado.com or from your local pharmacy.




Shampoos: with or without essential oils.

Almocado has a wide range of products for textured hair; and we have two shampoos which are specifically formulated for interlocked and natural hair:
Stage 1 (original) and Stage 1 Peppermint Tea – both of which share the same Seaweed and Algae based formula rich in hair loving vitamins and minerals.

The Original one contains an allergen free fragrance (and smells like Caribbean Sunshine) ; while the other contains organic essential oils: Rosemary, Peppermint and Tea Tree – the combination of which gives a tingling sensation to the scalp. If you are sensitive to any of these oils, or indeed if you are pregnant, we suggest that you choose the Original Formula.
Our ethos is to be as kind to you and to the earth as possible, so we don’t use high foaming agents that might strip or damage your hair.
Both shampoos contain ecofriendly natural cleansers which means that in some locations, depending on your water hardness, they will be low sudsing.
The shampoos are concentrated so don’t keep adding more shampoo in an attempt to get more suds – you’ll just be wasting the product. You can also ‘stretch’ the shampoo or make it milder by diluting it with water in a spray bottle and spraying it directly onto your locs/scalp.
We’ve included pics of our new and old labelling so you can tell the difference between the products.

How to Save Money with Every Order



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).
