For awhile back in 2003, I used Avalon Organics Lavender shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo was OK, but the conditioner wasn't great(I need more strength in a conditioner what with coloring, and having mixed-texture 2c-3a hair). I tried their Lemon-something clarifying shampoo and it irritated my scalp. Haven't used Avalon since then - like blulight here, it seems that my hair and scalp don't particularly like Avalon either.

I recently noticed they changed the formula again and would like to try it again to see if it's like the "original" one.

I also used the Lemon Verbena for clarifying, was as good as making the "Lemon Aid" from L.M.'s book, the only use I gave it because it was not very moisturizing. Another one I tried was one with thyme and mint which was ok but not as good for me as the Lavender.
