      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      .

      I don't think that this is still sold in the main Avon book, but I got a tub of this out of the sale book a few months ago and have just got round to using it. I tend to just use normal Conditioners on my Hair, and although I like to use the odd longer leave in 1, then I admit that I can be a bit lazy when it comes to applying it. I have also bought the 1 that is still in the book which is the Mandarin one as a friend of mine said it was great and her Hair always looked nice and shiny, but when I used it then I didn't notice much difference.

      This comes in a 200ml tub and I got it for £1. I think this normally costs around the £2.50-£3 mark but can't remember. The Tub looks like the Dooyoo picture, so qutie a wide plastic tub with a large opening which makes it easy enough to reach in and scoop this out. The lid is easy enough to twist off and you get the nice scent of this when you open it. It is a nice fresh and clean scent and the Papaya is the main scent but the Kiwi tinge is easy to spot as well.

      This is pretty fiddly. You just reach in and scoop some of this into your palm. I found that this went everywhere and I slapped some on my Hair and tried to work down the whole of my long thick hair so this is coated quite evenly.

      How long to leave this on for? Not really sure as all the writing is in Polish, so I don't think that is all that good. I often find that there isn't much English on quite a few of the Avon products.

      After this was rinsed out my hair felt soft and smelt nice. It wasn't overly shiny, but perhaps 5 minutes of this being left on wasn't long enough.

      Would I buy this again? Don't think so. I prefer the mandarin one.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A`great product reasonably priced

      If you have problem hair then this is the product for you . My hair is very very fine and for years I have had trouble and tried a lot of products that would help to give the appearance of thicker hair without drying it out.
      Then a friends daughter started Avon and I thought I would order something to help out . I have not looked
      back I saw the Papaya and Kiwi Yogurt and thought I would give it a try , from the first time I used it my hair has felt different it gives the appearance of being thicker, is soft and not dried out and as a bonus it smells lovely.
      All you have to do is shampoo as normal and pop the hair mask on making sure you leave it for at least
      4 mins if you are not lucky enough to have an agent call as I do then you can also get it on line unlike a lot of the more well known products it does not cost an arm and leg and is very reasonable.

      Advantages

      Can see why it has been discontinued

      As you may have read in other hair care reviews, my hair takes a lot of hammer. I wash, dry and straighten it EVERY day. I also get it coloured regularly. Because of this, my hair does sometimes get a little dry, and I do try to treat it with an intensive conditioner at least once a week. I purchased Avon Naturals Papaya & Kiwi yogurt hair mask some time ago, but have just recently uncovered it amongst the huge collection of products I have accumulated. As with all Avon products I purchased, it was on offer at the time, although I cannot remember the exact price.

      Packaging

      This hair mask is packaged in a cylinder tub with a screw lid, containing 125ml of the product. The container is a pale orange colour, with a logo on the front and black text with the name of the item. On the back of the tub is a short sentence giving a brief description of what the product contains and claims to do to the hair:

      "With Bioseed Complex - Pure seed extracts known to nourish, soothe and protect"

      On the base of the product is a sticker, which you can lift up to reveal directions and an ingredients list.

      Directions

      To use:

      "After shampooing massage through hair, with special care to ends. Leave on up to 10 minutes. Rinse and style as usual"

      My Experience

      My first gripe with this product is with the sticker on the bottom of the container, containing directions on how to use the mask. It took 15 minutes to get the sticker to open, very very annoying!!

      After shampooing my hair, I dried it quickly with a towel to remove the excess moisture. I then unscrewed the lid of the mask, and was immediately met with the strong fragrance from the product. I cannot emphasise enough just how strong this product smells. It is really, really fruity and sweet, sickly sweet. I was not too keen on the smell at all. The mask itself is quite a bright orange colour. I used my hands to lift some of the mask out of the pot, and this in itself was quite difficult. The product is runnier than I imagined, other masks I have used have been thick and rich, this is the complete opposite. Because it is so runny, it gets a bit messy and on the occasions I have used it, the mask has ended up all over the bath. It was easy to apply to the hair though, and I busied myself for ten minutes before removing it, which was very easy to do.

      Once I had rinsed my hair, I styled it as usual. As I was drying my hair, the scent from the product was still there, but nowhere near as strong, which I preferred. My hair did feel nice and soft, and was shiny. However, it was also pretty limp, and lacking in volume which is not the look I was going for.

      The mask has lasted around a month and a half, using it once a week, which isn't a huge amount of time but I do have long hair and the mask was reasonably priced.

      I believe the product has been discontinued, however I have found it on sale on Ebay. I would not recommend paying more than a couple of pound for this. It's okay as a treat for your hair, if you don't mind it lacking volume until the next wash, but I would not go out of my way to buy it.

      A Waste Of Money Because It Doesn't Work That Well

      This is yet another Avon item I was given by my cousin when she quit her Avon round, it's a hair mask that you're supposed to leave on for a few minutes to intensively condition your hair. When I saw it in the box I was dead happy because I get my hair bleached regular and it's starting to become proper dry so needs all the help it can get.

      If this is supposed to be a yogurt hair mask then it's based on the thinnest yogurt ever and I reckon Avon have just squirted a bit of conditioner into a small pot and called it a hair mask! It's hard to scoop out of the pot because it's so runny and I end up just slopping it all over the bath and all down the sides of the pot.

      It smells lovely and fruity but it's more like peach than papaya or kiwi I think but it's a nice smell anyway and it lingers on my hair for a while after I've used it.

      I don't think this mask does much for my hair. I left it on for over an hour the other night while I was in the bath and the only effect it had was like a normal conditioner, it got rid of some of the tangles out of my hair but didn't make it feel majorly soft or sleek or anything. Actually I don't think there was a lot of difference between when I used this and when I just slap my normal conditioner on my hair and rinse it straight out. The best thing about it is the smell I reckon!

      Another thing that bugged me about this hair mask is that the plastic pot is proper hard to open when you've got wet hands and obviously your hands are going to be wet when you're washing your hair! That's ok when you're just washing your hair but if you're in the shower you have to find a dry bit of skin to press the pot on and try to open it! lol

      I won't bother with this again because I need something a bit richer for my hair and honestly the conditioners from the pound shop are more effective than this one.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I recommend this product as a cheap treat.

      This product is a Papaya and Kiwi Yoghurt Hair Mask from the Avons Naturals range. It is now discontinued though that means that although it is no longer in the main brochure, you can pick it up cheaply at car boot sales, from auction sites or in Avon brochure sale suppliments because Avon sell off products like this quite cheaply when they discontinue them.

      This product claims to be a hair mask and I do feel that is a little bit misleading. It is more of a deep penetrating conditioner and if it was labelled as such, perhaps people wouldn't be as disappointed by it's thin consistency as they have been. That is the main reason this has now been discontinued by Avon. It is important in considering this product that you are aware that yes it is thin and that the consistency is no thicker than your average conditioner.

      The smell when you open the little pot this comes in is really lovely and that's the best thing about this product. It is sweet and fruity with a genuine natural smell to it. It is better to pour it into a cupped hand for use than try to delve into the pot. Smother it generously all over your hair then leave it sink in while you have a soak in the bath for twenty minutes. When you rinse it out, you will find your hair is well conditioned and smells lovely.

      This product will only last you a month or two if you use it once or twice a week so my personal recommendation is to pick this up as a lovely smelling treat if you spot it on sale. Typically this is now selling for between 75p and £1.50 a pot which is a good price for a lovely rich conditioner like this.

      Yogurt and Papaya for your hair

      I straighten my hair regularly, and I worry about the effect the heat has on my hair. I use a hair mask or intensive conditioner once a week to give it a bit of a boost and to hopefully help counteract the drying effects caused by my straighteners.

      ~Packaging~

      This comes in a small, round plastic pot, with screw top lid, and contains 125ml of product, which, if using once a week, I would say would last 4-5 weeks, more if you have shorter hair. As you can see by the picture provided, the pot is peach in colour, and quite nice to look at.

      ~Using it~

      On opening the pot you will instantly notice the lovely fruity smell, which I assume must be the papaya. It's a very pleasant smell, which is not too overpowering.
      The first time I used this, I was fairly surprised to see that there were no instructions for use on the packaging. Given this, I had to improvise, so I applied it to my hair and left for about 5 minutes, as this is generally how you use these sort of products.
      The cream itself is white, and very runny I thought. With most hair masks I have used in the past, they are like conditioner, but a lot thicker in consistency, which made me think this was a bit strange.

      ~Results~

      Once my hair was dry, it had a lovely subtle fruity smell, which was quite nice. Condition wise, it didn't seem to have changed much, usually after using one of these types of treatments, it is notably softer, but unfortunately with this product I didn't find that it made much difference at all.

      ~Price~

      The normal price of this product is £2.50, but I bought it when it was on special offer for £1, from my sister who is an Avon rep. You can also purchase online from www.avonshop.co.uk

      ~Overall Opinion~

      I will not be buying this again, I am currently using VO5 mud miracle, which does not cost much more, but gives noticeably better results. The only positive things I can say about it were the delicious smell and the packaging was OK.

        a runny potion for your hair

        I don't normally buy Avon products as I don't have a rep near me, but when I saw my friend's catalogue and had a flick through a few of the products caught my eye.
        I used to buy a conditioning pot for my hair which used to smell gorgeous and do wonders for my hair. I haven't been able to find this same product on the website for ages so in the catalogue I found the nearest product to get similar results, or so I hoped.

        I chose the papaya and kiwi yogurt hair mask because it was on offer at 31.25 instead of £2.50 for a 125ml pot, and also the thought of papaya and kiwi sounded quite a nice combination for the aroma of the product.

        When I received it, the pot was fairly small but pleasing to the eye. The packaging is very simple with a screw lid and simple peach colour with a couple of pictures of the said fruits.
        Apart from the ingredients list in a couple of different languages and a sentence 9also in a few different languages) there wasn't really anything else about the product. Seeing as I didn't take a lot of notice in the brochure I had to have a quick look online for directions on how to use the product.
        Finding none I decided to experiment myself later in the bath.

        Upon opening the pot you are greeted with a fairly runny consistency with a gorgeous aroma of obviously papaya and kiwi. As kiwi is a fairly soft aroma fruit it's more the papaya you can smell. It almost reminds me of sweets from when i was young.
        The consistency as I mentioned is fairly runny and also has a glossy sheen to it, much the same as other conditioner brands on the market.

        So to washing my hair. After using my shampoo as normal, I opened the pot and scooped a bit up in my hands. A lot of it fell straight out of my hands into the bath. As soon as I realised exactly how runny it was, I was more careful, so be warned if you are going to use this product.
        I covered my shoulder length hair and left on for a couple of minutes (which is how long I leave most of my conditioners on for as I don;t find it makes too much difference).

        The conditioner is easy to rinse out and I wasn't left with greasy residue as some conditioners can do if they are extremely thick and don't get washed out properly.
        My hair did smell lovely and my other half noticed and commented on it later that evening. The smell however wasn't still lingering the next morning.

        My hair didn't feel any different than normal considering I had used a product with the words "mask" in them. Maybe I am being naïve but I assumed it would be a slight conditioning treatment as well.
        Ok I decided I hadn't left it on long enough so my next bath I vowed to really give my hair a mask and left it on for half an hour in the bath.

        The second time around it was just as messy trying to apply and don't even try to put the lid on as wet hands make the product slippery and there's a risk of dropping the pot into the bath and losing the lot.
        Rinsing this second time took a bit more time as after half an hour it did need more water to ensure it was all removed.
        The smell this time however was a lot stronger and I could still smell it the next morning and periodically through the day I would get a waft of papaya.
        The only thing there was no difference in was how my hair felt and looked. It did nothing any other condition I usually buy does, the only thing it does do is smell lovely and make it very difficult to apply due to the consistency.

        I would buy this if it was on offer but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this again. At the moment I can't find it on the Avon website but it's part of the naturals range if anyone does want to look for it.
