The Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner from John Masters Organics is a rich and creamy concoction that works well as an emergency treatment. I'll also guess that it might be excellent for chemically treated hair. Unfortunately, after using up a full tube of the conditioner under various hair circumstances (heat, humidity, a day in the sun) I've come to realize that as much as I like the scent and the pleasant texture, my hair disagrees with me. This John Masters Organics ends up being too heavy for my needs.
My hair is long, extremely thick and requires a good moisturizing conditioner. However, it's a delicate balance between ample nourishment to overdoing it, and I find the John Masters Organics Lavender & Avocado to be too much. It makes my hair feel heavy and limp, and even worse: lose its shine. The one way I made it work was as a hair mask followed by another shampooing. This way I get the conditioning treatment while getting rid of any residue that weighs my hair down. The problem is that this takes quite a bit of time for a result I can get more quickly and with less products.
Bottom Line: your mileage may vary.
John Masters Organics- Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner ($22) is available from select salons and from beauty.com.
