Default Is Avalon Organics CG Friendly?

Firstly, is Avalon Organics CG friendly? I ask cause the last ingredient on the list says "and other essential oils" - does that mean it includes mineral oil?

Secondly, is Avalon Organics more moisturizing than Burt's Bees?

I notice that some ppl on here have said that Burt's isn't very moisturizing, and since I have thick, coarse, dry, frazzled hair...I'm not sure I want to give it a try.

Should I use honey after conditioning to lock in more moisture?

Which item were you considering? Some of their conditioners have cyclopentasiloxane, which isn't CG friendly.

Ok...very odd

When I was looking at the bottle in the store earlier today it didn't have cyclopentasiloxane or any -cones listed in the ingredients, but it does have them listed online.

Perhaps they changed the ingredients, or they are different in Canada.

I will look again tomorrow to make sure that I didn't just miss it in hopeful thinking or something.

I have the Avalon organics-revitalizing conditioner with peppermint.In the back it said 100% vegetable ingrediants but it has cyclopentasiloxane,emulsifying wax,arginine(amino acid) and some other things that deosn`t sound like vege.I Bought it in Canada.I ask the lady at the store what are these things and she said that she doesn`t know what the ing are.I told her that it said 100% vege and she said,Then it only has that.I wish I didn`t buy it.They shouldn`t have people working at health stores who don`t know anything about the ing. .

Maybe they just mean non-animal derived ingredients?

What about Avalon's Tea Tree mint shampoo? I LOVE the smell of this stuff, and use it on my (curly) kids as lice prevention. I used it the other day because I needed clarifying, and it did feel a bit harsh.

Purified water, organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice(1), sodium cocoyl sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium cocoyl sarcosinate, vegetable glycerin, organic melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil(2), undecylenamidopropyltrimonium methosulfate, panthenol (pro-vitamin B-5), wheat protein, soy protein, citric acid, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, soyamidopropalkonium chloride, jojoba oil, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil(2), sodium benzoate, rosamarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, potassium sorbate, ethylhexylglycerin, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil and other essential oils.

Conditioner:
organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice(1), cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, dicetyldimonium chloride, dimethicone, organic calendula officinalis extract(2), organic melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil(3), portulaca oleracea extract, organic camellia sinensis (white tea) extract(2), panthenol (pro-vitamin B-5), soy protein, organic anthemis nobilis (chamomile) extract(2), organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil(3), behentrimonium methosulfate, organic lavandula officinalis (lavender) extract(2), amodimethicone, citric acid, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, menthol, sodium benzoate, rosamarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, potassium sorbate, ethylhexylglycerin, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil and other essential oils.

I don't know about the first bolded, but the second is a sulfate which cg'ers avoid.

Dimethicone is not cg friendly as well, if I recall correctly.

They may work nicely for non cgers or modified, but perhaps not so for those who follow it more strictly.

Ugh, I was using the Lemon Clarifying Conditioner for literally 6 MONTHS before I figured out that cyclopentasiloxane was a cone. It was infuriating. Luckily, I was pretty much finished with the bottle. So infuriating. I'm pretty sure all their other conditioners had 'cones in some form or another, but I could be wrong, and I haven't checked out that Tea Tree one.

Simplicity is best, at least for my hair. I co-wash every two days or so with the BWC and use the AOHR as a rinse-out when I need moisture. On other days, I just water wash, and I use AV gel every day to style. I air-dry and don't brush or comb my hair.
