===Why I Bought This===
As we all get older our hair tends to lack a little something. Having always had thin and fine hair anyway it is now showing that it needs some care and attention so seeing this in the Avon catalogue along with the corresponding shampoo and styling foam I thought i would try them all together to see what boost I could give my hair.
Avon is a long established direct selling network which used to sell just door-to-door but you can order directly from their website these days if you do not have a local representative handy.

Well I was expecting quite good results with this product as I had also got the shampoo and styling foam from the same range as well - as I thought using them all together would have better results -and it does state on the packaging you will get 2 x the volume - a brave claim.
I had used the shampoo first and rinsed well. I towel wrapped my hair to remove excess moisture and then opened the conditioner.
The conditioner itself is a thick white liquid without much smell.
I smoothed it over my short hair and then waited the required minute before rinsing.
Personally I thought it required quite a lot of extra rinsing to make sure it was all removed from my hair and I was concerned that it would leave my hair greasy as it had felt quite greasy on my hands when had been applying it.
After about double the rinsing I normally do for shampoo I was satisfied that it was all removed and then went to comb my hair into place and add the styling foam.
I noticed no visible improvement to my hair at all - no more bounce or volume, although to be fair it was not greasy either.
People who have left reviews on the Avon website are all singing its praises so I am not sure where I am going wrong.
Not a lot more to say about it really - some rave over the Advance Techniques range but apart from the odd product such as their Leave In conditioner I have not been very impressed.
As you have a money-back guarantee with Avon try it if you wish - you may be one of the lucky ones it works for - but personally I saw no difference at all.
===Promises much but does not deliver===
3 - OK as a conditioner I suppose but not much volume.
