Advantages: Cleans hair and leaves super soft
Disadvantages: None for me
I've been buying Avon products sporadically over the years and mainly when I was a Rep for around a year myself as it was so convenient to purchase my own products at the same time as placing an order. When I gave up being a Rep myself I relied on a local Rep in my area to order via, though she was very hit and miss and for a long period there was no one offering this service. I could easily order online through Avon's shop but I didn't want to be stung by P&P charges especially if only wanting the odd item or two, so I was very pleased when a school mum friend started running Avon just before Christmas making it easy for me to order once again.
I'd read several positive reviews about Avon's Moroccan Argan Oil hair products and as my hair has been lacking in lustre` and finesse recently, I decided to order the shampoo and matching conditioner to see if it could help make any much needed improvements to my dry hair.
Having just finished using up the contents from the shampoo, my review will now focus on my experience of using Avon's '360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo'..
What Avon have to say about this product:
"..effectively cleanses hair leaving it feeling smoother, stronger and more manageable whilst instantly detangling hair.."
I was lucky that when I decided to order the shampoo it was on a half price offer, as were other products from the Advanced Techniques hair care range, so I took advantage and ordered the shampoo, conditioner and a leave in hair treatment. I bought the smaller sized bottle of 250ml which is currently half price again at £1.40 with it's regular RRP being a still reasonable £2.80. There is also a larger 400ml size available which is £4.50 though is also currently on an offer price of £2.70 making it an economy purchase.
This is an Avon product so can be bought via a Rep by ordering through them after choosing from a brochure. Alternatively there is also an Avon shop online as mentioned in an above paragraph, though ordering this way often incurs a P&P charge unless you spend over a certain amount so this isn't always ideal unless ordering a bulk amount of items, if interested though then the site is www.avonshop.co.uk. Ebay always have a large selection of Avon items so it's worth checking out this and similar sites if after something in particular.
The shampoo is housed in a very sleek looking bottle which is slim line from the side view with a much wider appearance. Made of a sturdy but squeezable plastic, the bottle is easy to hold which I think is an important factor when your hands are slippy whilst showering the last thing you want is a cumbersome bulky bottle. To access the shampoo there is a lid perched on top with an overhanging lip that is easy to both open and close and is an attractive shade of blue which contrasts nicely against the matte silver looking bottle. The Avon logo is in a bold black font with the Moroccan Argan Oil wording underneath in a glitzy gold colour and all in all it has a very attractive look to it, whereas some Avon products - as good as they are - can look a bit 'cheap'.
My experience of using this:
I'd heard so many positive things about this shampoo, in fact the whole range of Moroccan Argan Oil range, that I was really looking forward to trying this out for myself. I have natural blond hair but like most people that do it starts to look a tad dull the older you get and now I'm the grand old age of 37 I also have a few sneaky grey hairs so because of these reasons I like to colour my hair every few months to basically brighten it up. I try to take good care of my hair and use reputable hair products as 'cheap and cheerful' ones unfortunately leave it dry and whilst I am a big fan of the Aussie range my purse isn't. Searching for an alternative I was eager to try this range so when my friend started running Avon it was one of the first items I ordered and couldn't wait to start using it.
On opening the bottle for the first time in the shower I applied a small blob of around the size of a 20p coin to the palm of my hands before applying to my already wet hair. I've found that for different shampoos you need different amounts and as this was the first time I had tried this I thought I'd go for the lesser amount as I could always apply more if need be, I have shoulder length hair so presumed this would suffice.
The shampoo itself is quite thick in consistency though not so much that it 'blobs' out of the bottle and I found it emitted quite smoothly and consistently when I tipped the bottle. Appearance wise the shampoo is bright white in colour with a slight pearl like iridescent hue whilst the texture is smooth and velvet like to the touch. Fragrance wise it has a fresh and clean aroma that reminds me very much of Pantene products (which is no bad thing as far as I'm concerned).
The shampoo lathers up immediately when it comes into contact with the running water from the shower and I could instantly feel it's moisturising properties as my hair was easy to wash without feeling tangled like some shampoos can make it feel like. I found it to feel smooth on my hair and whilst it lathered up quite intensely creating lots of bubbles it also took minimal time to rinse away as well.
After rinsing I was impressed how soft my wet hair felt though proceeded to use the matching conditioner as my hair becomes too brittle if I don't condition it regardless of the shampoo used. Towel drying my hair though was an easy task as was combing through my hair afterwards with a large toothed comb.
I dried my hair in the usual manner by blasting it with my hair dryer then using my heated roller brush to smoothen it down and add a bit of body. All the while I found my hair felt super soft and easy to manage which made washing and styling my hair a pleasure rather than a task.
Once fully dry and styled my hair looked smooth, felt soft and had no flyaway hairs which I always find to be a problem. The beautiful aroma lingered and was evident every time I turned my hair (in a 'just stepped out of a salon' way!) and could smell the fresh clean scent that seemed to have adopted a fruity aroma once dry.
I've been really impressed with this shampoo as not only suitable for all hair types, it's left my hair clean, not irritated my scalp but most importantly it's left my hair feeling soft and super smooth. The low price is also a bonus and because a small amount is needed each time even the smaller bottles work out economical at full price (though are often on offer).
This is highly recommended by me and I've been really impressed with the effects it's had on my dry(ish) hair as it's been much easier to wash and style and combing has been easy as it's now nearly always tangle free. I still love Aussie products but now I know that when money is tight then this shampoo can be used instead and will give the same great results.
Summary: A really impressive shampoo from Avon that leaves hair silky soft
