I don’t regularly buy Avon products as they are not special enough and as I don’t have an Avon lady
This one I bought a while back for around £1 so I thought it was worth a try. I comes in a plastic spray bottle but no aerosol just pump spray which is preferable as it doesn’t pollute the ozone layer that way.
The bottle is clear so you can see how much is left and the label is simple with a picture of pomegranates on the front and the name of the product. The bottle can be re used yourself at home for things like watering indoor plants and other beauty stuff or recycled through your plastic recycling scheme.
The actual leave in conditioner comes out pretty much like cloudy water and has a very slight conditioning feel but very slight indeed when felt in the hands.
It smells nice and sweetly fresh and fruity, not a lot like pomegranate to me more apple sort of scent.
The spray comes out quite wet so you don’t need a lot and I tend to spray this after I have dried my hair them give it another quick dry otherwise my hair has a tendency to frizz if it gets damp once dry.
In truth I don’t tend to use this much for my own hair as it doesn’t need extra conditioning but it is great for my granddaughter’s long fine hair and saves a lot of ‘ouching’ as I brush it as her hair is quite thick yet fine in texture and very long. This also dampens it for making it easy to plait as she loves he Disney Princess style plaits. My step daughter is now an expert and it s a really neat way to tie her hair away for school to save the constant nit issue for those with long hair.
I like the fact that this smells nice and does condition the hair that little it extra as well.
ETHICS AND ANIMAL TESTING
Avon declare that they do not test their products on animals but it does appear they hide behind ingredients in the products being tested prior to Avon using them.Also it seems that Avon is one of the companies paying to have their products tested on animals in order to sell their stuff in China. Peta have found this out and they are listed as a company to avoid because of this. I hate it when companies are two faced in this way and that is another reason why I have stopped buying their stuff recently.
I had been looking for a nice leave in conditioner for a while. I dont know if its just me but I was finding it increasingly difficult to find.
Sometimes I dont have time to stay in the shower for an extra five minutes to put regular conditioner on, wait a few minutes then wash it out. Hence I wanted a quick spritz and away I go!
My friend has recently become an Avon representative and it has given me a good chance to try some products.
The one I tried was the Almond Oil and Avacado variety.
It normally costs £2.00 for 125ml but it was on special offer at just 99p (so I ordered 3).
This product comes in a nice sleek slim plastic bottle with spray function and lid. It has user instructions on in English and a variety of other languages.
On first trying this I immediately noticed the lovely fresh smell of almond and avacado, not too strong but a clear pleasant smell. The spray enables you to aim the conditioner pretty accurately at your hair and a fine mist is dispensed.
I applied to damp hair and once my hair had dried I noticed that the pleasant smell remained and so did well conditioned hair which was soft and tangle free.
I now use this product on my three children who also like the smell and it leaves their hair lovely and soft.
The only downside to this product is that I seem to get through a bottle every couple of weeks. So maybe they should make it in a bigger size.
This product is available from an Avon representative or online at avonshop.co.uk
Overall, I found this an inexpensive quick and easy way to condition your hair. Ideal for those, who like me, havent got time to use regular conditioner!
Having dyed hair I find blow drying it makes my hair very brittle and frizzy, well a scarecrow comes in mind. I have tried loads of products to combat my hairs frizziness and this is my experience with the Avon leave-in conditioning spray.
The Pomegranate and Jojoba leave in conditioner smells lovely and fresh. At £2.00 per bottle and at the moment buy one get one free on the Avon website is a very good bargain. I always use Avonshop.com and found the site easy to use to find the products you want.
The 125 ml bottle contains clear conditioner and the fine spray covers your hair from root to tip. To use just spray evenly over wet or dry hair. Combing it through is very easy and leaves your hair tangle free.
After washing my hair and conditioning it I then spray on the leave in conditioner and blow dry as normal. I found after a few times off use my hair is less frizzy and more manageable and smells nice. I also have used it on dry hair on the tips of my hair to help with dry ends and has helped to calm my frizzy ends. I like the idea that you dont have to wash out.
The ingredients in the conditioner are aqua, butylene glycol, phosphoric acid, linalol, glycerin, jojoba seed extract, helianthus annus seed extract and bioseed complex.
Would I recommend this product yes as it is not expensive you are not losing out. Has it heped my hair to de-tangle easy and combatted my dry hair, yes it has. Does my hair smell nice yes.
A great in-expensive product that works.
Along came my poor Avon lady Representative on a freezing, cold soggy night in late December. I'd been rehearsing 'look Anita this just isn't working out.... I can do better than Avon on the high street.... I think it's best we stop seeing eachother...' but I just couldn't end our relationship. She looked so hopeful as she thrust the little catalogue into my hand and scarpered back home to try and scrape the ice off her feet. Damn I thought this means once again I have to order something yet again!
As I've explained before I once had nothing but all I stood up in after leaving an ex partner. I got everything back in the end (and more lol) but I had been living with him and I came back home to live with my parents in my empty childhood bedroom with not even a can of deodorant or a hairbrush to my name and all I could say to the policeman trying to help me was 'I want my perfumes back... now!' As I said I got every single thing of mine back in the end but it didn't look hopeful for a while but through my dedication and love of my cosmetics and toiletries (never mind my clothes, jewellery and photographs etc) I hired a van and me and my folks did a heist lol
Anyhow point is with the help of Anita (my Avon Rep) I managed to get a lot of products in a short space of time, choosing a lot of buy one get frees, and deals and stuff on special offer or with free gifts etc so I'm greateful for that little catalogue cos it's not nice to have it all and end up with nothing and that period of my life taught me a lot!
Well I used it after washing and conditioning my hair in the usual way. Application is/was easy. Sprays on as a fine mist and gives even coverage. It does spray out a bit foamy if you keep pumping away so just a spray and give it a second then spray again don't do it continuous. However the bubbles do comb through easily and it doesn't make hair feel soapy/yukky/gunky. At the same time hair at this stage doesnt feel particularly soft either.
At first the smell to my nasal passages is horrible. Sickly sweet and a bit like a smelly incense stick. I always dry my hair the same way, on a cool setting. The smell evaporates quite a lot and I was left with a fairly pleasant slightly fruity fresh smell. Now as I'd ordered this product two weeks prior to using it I wasn't sure what to expect as it doesn't say on the bottle. I checked on the website and it is meant to condition and help defrizz hair and control flyways.
I would like to take Avon on over this claim. It sends my hair into frizzy heaven! Fly-aways are something I don't actually suffer with unless my hair is over conditioned. Now even though I say that I can use this product along with other products so all is not lost but on its own on my head it is a nightmare. However use this with my other products my hair is lovely and soft and silky. It works well if I straighten my hair and wear it down. If I straighten it and wear it up then no chance. A band can't hold it in place as it's just to silky.
Where this product really does excel is something that Avon doesn't boast and that is with its shine. Now I have no idea whether its just my hair or what but this stuff works as well on the shine boosting qualities as do a lot of rather expensive products I have specifically bought for their promise of shine enhancement and in some case works so much better.
Also for a conditioning product it really isn't heavy and really does give a lot of body to my hair and makes it very bouncy.
If I want body and I want shine and I'm prepared to work through the issues of frizz and fly-aways this really is a little gem and it's Cheap and cheerful. However if your buying it for Avon says it will achieve and not what I'm saying I think you shall find it disappointing. Although it is a conditioning mist and does make my hair a little over conditioned at times oddly enough it doesn't upset the more greasy parts of my hair.
My preferred use of this is on dry hair before I go to sleep at night as it is only a fine mess so I'm not sleeping with soggy hair and I find it works on the conditioning front the same as my Neutrogena leave in night conditioner that cos me something like 6 times as much as this. It lasts ages in the bottle as you don't need loads of it and I would advise anyone to give it a go as its a decent offering from Avon.
On special offer from Avon only 99p. Normally £2.00.
This silky conditioning spray replenishes and detangles hair and helps to eliminate frizz and flyaways /
