Silk Dreams Avocado Pudding Silky Conditioning Cream Review

I have heard so many good things about the Avocado Pudding conditioner from the ladies on Hairlista. I finally decided give it try. Check out my intro post about it here

Taking the lead from my fellow Virgo, Age in Atl, I decided to use this product after a shampoo wash and a co-wash. I would have never thought to do that. lol

Shampoo Wash:

This past wash day I used the Shi-Naturals Olive and Almond Oil Softening Shampoo. Which did exactly what it said it would. It left my new growth soft and easy to manage. I skipped the rinse out conditioner step and went straight to deep conditioning. I T-shirt dried my hair for about 10 minutes then proceeded to apply the conditioner. I was not feeling how this conditioner was going onto my hair. When it comes to the Vanilla Silk, Chocolate Bliss, and the Mocha Silk Infusion they melt right into my hair. So much that sometimes I tend to go overboard. That was not the case with the Avocado Pudding. This conditioner sat on top of my hair. Not cool. 
This is my hair after I sat under the dryer for 20 minutes

This is my hair with the conditioner into before I sat under the dryer.

All that conditioner just sitting on my hair. I thought that maybe sitting under the dryer would help. After sitting under the dryer for 20 minutes I rinsed the conditioner out with cold water or at least cool as I could take it. It took a little while to rinse out. I sat with a t-shirt on for about 30 minutes. After removing the shirt, my hair felt ridiculously soft and easier to detangle. I did run into some knots but that happens. With the softness that I experienced I can see why the owner says this conditioner can aide in making stretching a little easier.


I didn't care for this after co-washing. My hair felt just ok. The conditioner went on better and didn't sit on top of my hair nearly as much as it did after the shampoo wash. I sat under the dryer for 20 minutes with the wash as well. The softness that I experienced DCing after shampooing was not there after co-washing. 

What's the verdict you ask? It's still up in the air

Despite the softness of my hair after the shampoo wash, I don't know if I would repurchase this simply because I don't like how it just sits on my hair. I like conditioners that melt into my hair. I will finish the jar that I have and make my final decision then. I will say that this conditioner worked better for me after a shampoo wash and that is the only way that I can see continuing to use it. I can't stress enough how soft my hair was after using it. 


  1. It sounds like our results are VERY similar. It literally sat on top of my hair and it doesn't spread smoothly when I apply it. It didn't give me a lot of slip or moisture. I just was NOT impressed with this one, especially knowing how her other conditioners perform. Definitely won't repurchase. Great review!

    1. Thanks Age! I had a feeling that we would have the same experience. lol I'm definitely sticking to the Vanilla Silk, Chocolate Bliss, and Mocha Silk Infusion. She has a new conditioner coming out called Razzberry Coconut Affair. I don't know if you read about that on the Silk Dreams group on Hairlista. I will definitely be giving it try.

    2. Wait, WHAT?!?!?! A new one with coconut?? Girl, I have not heard about it, but I will definitely be on the look out. I hope she has another sale soon. I am running low on Chocolate Bliss. I want to try Mocha Silk so bad but I am scared that my hair may not like it because of the protein. Is it a super light protein that you don't have to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner?

    3. @Age Keep on eye in the Silk Dreams page on Hairlista. Jorien, the owner, had a special sale code for the group and sign up for the updates and specials email on the her website. If I needed something I would have ordered more products during one of those specials. lol
