“ Brand: Avon / Sprays / Type: Styling Mist / Subcategory: Styling Sprays / What it does: Refreshes, „
My hair is very long and thick and I find that sometimes it seems to dry out no matter what I try, when I saw this in the Avon brochure I decided to try it as it promises to moisturise and strengthen your hair.
As with everything from Avon I bought the product whilst it was on offer as I don't buy anything full price from Avon unless I am desperate for it. The mist should cost £2 for a 125ml bottle but I only paid £1.
The product comes in a see through bottle which has a pump top which is covered by a plastic push on lid. On the front of the bottle is a label with a picture of apples and oats and the Avon naturals logo, it states on the bottle that this is meant for people with normal hair. To use the product you need to apply to clean damp hair and then comb it through.
The product is easy to administer although the first time you use it you have to pump it a fair few times to get the product through. The pump sprays well and gives a good amount of product per pump so you are not there for ages spraying the product. I have always liked fruity smells and this one is no different, it smells strongly of apples and is really sweet smelling.
The spray feels ok on my hair and the comb goes through easily when it is on which is a major selling point for me as my hair tangles easily with a lot of products. The smell of the product lasts well on my hair and even hairs later if I turn my head quickly I can still smell it. I find that my hair is soft and smooth after use although I can't say if this is from my shampoo and conditioner or from this product however I do find that the frizz of my hair is reduced so I do believe it moistens my hair well.
I don't use this product much on my hair just when I feel it is drying out and it certainly seems to help, when my bottle of this runs out I will buy it again. I wouldn't claim this is a super product that does amazing things but it helps keep my hair in decent condition so I would recommend it.
This is a must have if you are going anywhere hot on holiday!
If you have long hair like me then you will know what a struggle it can be to maintain at times, not to mention the problem of split ends!
I started using the Apple conditioning mist around a year ago and have found it to be not only great value for money, but very helpful in maintaining a nice "healthy looking" sheen on my hair.
My hair is so long that I still use a wash in/wash out conditioner after each wash, as I suffer from split ends. The apple spray works on damp hair so I usually just wrap my hair in a towel for a while before spraying.
You just spray it over your locks then dry as normal. Simple!
Even if this product was rubbish, i'd probably still use it because the smell is divine! Very fresh and light.
I'd really recommend this for holidays, as the sun tends to make my hair very dry. I think this would be ideal for an extra "boost" on holiday.
A while ago I ordered lots of stuff from the Avon catalogue as my sister is a rep, and one of the things I chose was their Naturals Fresh Apple and Oat Protein conditioning mist.
~About the product~
This is a leave in conditioning spray which is designed to strengthen and moisturise the hair. It also states on the bottle that this contains Bioseed complex, although it doesn't actually tell you anywhere what that is or what benefits it brings!
This spray comes in a clear non-aerosol spray bottle, through which you can see the light green coloured liquid, and has a picture of green apples on the front of it. I think the packaging is quite attractive compared to some. There are brief instructions on the back of the bottle, as well as warnings, such as 'avoid contact with eyes' and the other usual stuff.
The bottle states that this product should be sprayed onto clean damp hair and combed through. As soon as you spray the product you notice the sweet apple scent, which is actually quite natural, but you can also smell that it contains oats, as it has a distinctive oaty fragrance - almost like flapjacks - fine in a bakery, but I'm not sure about on my hair!
I have found that when I apply it to damp hair, it makes my hair feel very sticky and not at all pleasant, although this feeling disappears once my hair has dried. I have actually started applying this to dry hair, and this seems fine, and doesn't leave my hair sticky.
Once sprayed, I do notice a slight reduction in frizz to my hair, although this could just be because the spray is dampening it down, as it isn't actually designed as a styling product.
It leaves my hair with a fresh fragrance which lasts some time, but I have not noticed that my hair feels any more conditioned or soft, since using this. Then again, I must admit it hasn't got any worse, so perhaps this is doing something.
This costs £2.00 for a 125ml bottle from Avon. 125ml is actually quite small, and as I have long hair, I have to use quite a bit per use, and so I have found that the bottle has not lasted me long.
I wouldn't buy this product again. I haven't found that it does much for my hair, except to add fragrance, and when used on damp hair as directed, I didn't like the sticky feeling. All in all, I would say this was OK, but can't really be any more positive than that unfortunately.
Anyone who reads any of my reviews, will know by now I have a love hate relationship with Avon. I love my Avon lady, Anita but the products on the whole I find quite high priced and I can do better by shopping round for bargains in my town centre and I do like the big brands of stuff being a bit of a snob lol. So what I do from my Avon book is buy stuff that's ever so cheap and on offer and if I don't like it give it away and I don't mind cos I haven't shelled out too much!
I bought this on offer for a quid! I no. I'm cheap and I didn't expect to like it cos I don't like heavily scented fruity stuff on the whole but my Mum has dry hair so I thought I'd palm it off on her when I could see it was rubbish lol
What It Is....
Avon Naturals Energising Fresh Apple & Oat Protein Conditioning Mist.
125ml clear plastic recyclable plastic bottle with clear pump action nozzle with a clear safety cap over the top. On the front it tells me what it is and who it's by (as I've already stated). On the back tells me how to use and lists the ingredients (also in different languages). Nice bottle for Avon oh and the liquid is lime green!
Directions For Use....
Prepare your hair for styling with this leave-in conditioning spray. Apply to clean, damp hair. Comb through. Style as usual.
Well I shampoo my hair and condition as normal. Apply a few squirts of this and then comb it through my barnet. Now it smells of apples and in a way that is natural and not at all fake just like crispy green apples! It's not sticky and combs through easily and you feel like you've got nothing on your hair. I then blow dry on a low heat setting and wow was I impressed.
I always use straighteners afterwards but what really impressed me is hair felt conditioned, tamed a little and frizz had all but vanished (and I really do suffer with this). Yes it still needed straightening as usual but hair really felt soft and manageable, shiny and healthy. It was also easier to straighten, not tearing any hairs, split ends jelled into my style and it was just generally nicer.
What is also lovely is that I don't mind the smell of the apples upon application and believe me if it was all fake apple smelling I'd be first to moan but I found once I had blow dried it the smell had calmed down on my hair and it just smelt a bit sweet. I was worried that new boyfriend would nuzzle up to me and wanna know why I smelt like a fruit bowl but no comment part from to say how lovely and shiny my hair was!
I'm impressed, it's cheap, easy to use and hydrates hair without making the roots greasy. It softens and smooths hair without making it dull, lifeless and/or limp. All I have is really soft and manageable hair that is shiny and glossy and all this for a pound! There are no drawbacks to this product, it's suitable for anyone and doesn't stink of flipping apples once dried into the hair!
Still in Catalogue for £1.00 and normally £2.00, bargain! (Avon only).
A lightweight leave-in spray!
