“ Brand: Avon / Type: Hair Shampoo „
I suffer from a dry and itchy scalp and the Avon rep said this might help. She suggested I use it a few times a week and leave it on my head for five minutes. This bottle of Avon Tea Tree shampoo is a shampoo and a conditioner in one, so therefore it is cost effective I personally feel as there is no need to have to buy a seperate conditioner.
The packaging of this product is simple and plain and it is in a clear plastic container so you can see exactly how much you have used and how much you have left, which I like. It has a flip top lid and the bottle is nice and sturdy so no worries about it falling over when you stand in the shower. For 200ml expect to pay 99p, which I personally feel is great value for money as you don't need to use more than a 50p sized blob as it lathers up well on wet hair and makes some great foam.
The shampoo itself is a nice green in colour and surprsingly thick in consistency. It smells fresh and natural and not too womanly so I am happy to use this stuff as I think some shampoos can smell too womanly and sickly and this is prone to putting me off them.
This rinses off my hair well and leaves no sticky residue. It does actually help my itchy scalp though I have no idea why. A friend has told me it is meant to be soothing and calming and I can say it is, this will be the tea tree oil.
It makes my hair feel glossy and shiny and well kept, just like the dog's was when he was younger. It's smashing stuff and I really do recommend it if you have a sensitive scalp like I do.
This product is part of Avon's natural herbal care range and is for all hair types. Two things really appealed to me about this product. The first was that it is a shampoo and conditioner. This means of course one less bottle to take away with you and it was the same price as the single shampoo in the care range. I have had conversations with my friends as to which is better - an all in one or two seperate products. We never seem to come to any conclusions so i alternate between this product and another that I will probably review later. The second appealling aspect is the price. When on special offer ( which is quite often ) this product only costs 99p for 200ml. This proves great value.
The packaging -
I prefer clear packaging because you can see exactly how much is left in the container and so when to get some more. This is exactly the case with this product and with it's flip top having a straight finish it's easy to stand on it's head when it's getting low therefore using up every last bit. The bottle is designed to be quite tall and thin so taking up less space than some other bulker competitors.
The Product -
The actual product is light green in colour and fairly thick. It smells very similar to other shampoos which was a bit disappointing. As it was from the herbal range I hoped it would smell a bit more natural but never mind. Like most shampoos a little goes a long way so 200ml will last a few months. I find approximalely the size of a 10p piece works wonders on my just below the shoulder length hair. It creates a nice lather but not excessive so you spend the next ten minutes trying to get rid of the bubbles.
As with all Avon products you can get it from your friendly Avon lady or go online and buy it from their website ( the only problem with that is you have to pay postage and packing).
To be honest i have found that even though this product is cheap it has worked better on my hair than products I have spent 3 of 4 times more on. It's small enough to easily take away, cleans my hair very well and lasts a decent length of time. It has definately earnt it's place in my bathroom.
***THE PRODUCT*** The product I am reviewing is Avon Tea Tree Shampoo, which is only available via mail order from your local Avon representative. Or, you can order online by going to www.avon.co.uk ***THE COST*** This shampoo costs £2.50 for a 250ml bottle. Sometimes Avon include offers in their brochures and the bottle can sometimes cost in-between £1 and £2 when on offer. ***SMELL AND FEEL*** Apart from being a Tea tree smell, it is a very woodland, natural fragrance. It is made for all hair types and gives your hair a very fresh, clean feel to it. It leaves your hair feeling nourished and clean aswell as fresh and bouncy. It is very easy to use - like any normal shampoo, yet you most definetely do not want to use more that a 50p size spot on your hand. It lathers very easily because you do not need that much. It is the water that does most of the cleansing. ***RANGE*** This shampoo comes as part of the Avon Naturals Tea Tree range, which also inlcudes... >Tea tree Facial Wash, £2.50 >Tea Tree Moisture Gel, £3 >Tea Tree Body Wash, £2.50 >Tea Tree Blemish Stick (for spots), £2.75 >Tea Tree Conditioner, £2.50 >Tea Tree 3 in 1 Cleanser, £3 >Tea Tree Peel Off Mask, £2.50 All these are available from your Local avon rep or from www.avon.co.uk ***PACKAGING*** You will notice this bottle, it is a small, clear, green bottle with a tree pictured on the front. It is about 5cm in diameter, and about 11cm in height. ***MY OPINION*** In my opinion, it is a very good shampoo, although I only tend to buy it when it is on special offer in the catalogue. Also, as it is unisex, it is suitable for all the family and does not harm your eyes. I would recommend this to anyone with hair problems becaue it seems to make your hair bouncy and what I have realised is that it lasts for about 3 weeks with 4 people using it. ***CONTACTS*** www.avon.uk.com
Are your children being attacked by blood-sucking monsters in the playground? No, you don't need Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you need Avon Naturals Tea Tree Shampoo! If you have a primary school-aged child, you won't be a stranger to the misery of the dreaded head lice. However hard you try and however vigilant you are, at some point your child will come home scratching like a dog full of fleas. Chances are you will be scratching your head now just at the thought of it! I have tried all manner of supposed “nit-busting” products. Some work and some don’t. Some can be harsh and irritate kids’ scalps. Some are difficult and time consuming to apply. Some kill adult lice but do not work on the eggs or “nits”. Just when I was at the end of my tether, a friend of mine told me about Tea Tree Oil. It is an amazing natural substance from Australia that is an astringent and an antiseptic. The oil is said to be excellent for greasy hair and sensitive scalps – and head lice hate it! I started washing my five-year-old’s hair in Avon’s Naturals Tea Tree Oil shampoo about three months ago. After shampooing, I also use Avon’s matching Tea Tree Oil Conditioner and comb it through with a lice comb, just for safety (it also makes my daughter’s hair beautifully soft, manageable and tangle-free). Since using these products we have had very few incidences of head lice. Once or twice I have found lice in her hair, but these have never laid eggs and are easily picked out. These items vary widely in price according to what special offers are on in the Avon catalogue. When I bought mine they were “mix and match three for £5.00” on the shampoo and conditioner, which is a bargain. Sometimes they even do “buy one, get one free”, so keep an eye out for the good deals. The shampoo is gentle on her skin and scalp. It creates
a nice lather and leaves her hair very clean and shiny. The smell is a bit unusual (a bit like a cross between cucumber and mint) but it is not unpleasant and very fresh smelling. It comes in a 250ml bottle and is suitable for all hair types. It would be nice if it was available in a larger "family" sized bottle as all our family now uses it. The conditioner has the same smell and is quite thick and creamy (don’t be put off by the incredibly bright green colour!) It comes in a 150ml squeezy tube. All in all, I would recommend these products very highly. I now use them myself as I work as a school lunch supervisor (dinner lady) and one attack of head lice as an adult is more than enough! I haven’t suffered since, either. Try it and judge for yourself! Unfortunately, I have checked Avon's website at www.avonshop.co.uk and they do not appear to have these items listed, so see your local Avon representative.
Now, if you’re like me, you’ll love a bargain, right? A high quality product combined with a special offer is very tempting. Well, this is what I am hopefully giving you here. For the three pence I receive from you reading and rating this opinion, I will give you not one opinion, but two! That’s right, it’s a Buy One Get One Free opinion, a very special 2-in-1 offer that you just can’t miss! For the same price, you get an opinion on two of the products in the Avon Naturals range – the Tea Tree shampoo and matching conditioner. I bought these from the local Avon representative, as there was an offer on to buy three products in the range for only £5. (Besides the shampoo and conditioner, I also bought a grapefruit room spray.) Having four children who can bring home lots of little crawly friends in their hair, I was attracted to the Tea Tree range, because of it being good at preventing headlice. The shampoo is in a small round hard bottle, the conditioner is in a softer squeezy one. The shampoo is a watery gloopy light green, which smells awful – quite medical or clinical, a bit like Vosene. Not impressed with the fragrance at all. The conditioner is a bright – almost neon – green colour, much thicker and creamier (as you’d expect) and thankfully smells better, although there still is a bit of that chemical whiff about it. So I washed my hair with the shampoo and wasn’t too impressed really. The smell was just as bad, if not worse, once it was out of the bottle and on my hair. I seemed to need quite a lot of it to get the lather going and by that time, I was convinced I wouldn’t be using it any more, but would be stocking up on my Herbal Essences again. But persevering, I rinsed the shampoo off and began to put the conditioner on. My hair is long, dyed and dry, so conditioner is an important part of my hair care.
However, being as both the shampoo and conditioner aren’t specifically for this type of hair, I wasn’t expecting the results to be very impressive, but I was pleasantly surprised. It says on the bottle that the conditioner should be left in the hair for five minutes for the optimum results, but being as I was already later than I wanted to be, I just kept it on for a couple of minutes, before rinsing. It rinsed off easily, then I quickly towel dried my hair before grabbing my brush and expecting the daily struggle with the tangles. However, it brushed through easily, with only a few bits needing an extra comb, but much less tangled than usual. I dried it with the hairdryer, brushed it through again – and still, much easier than usual! I was impressed. After my hair was dry, it looked clean, shiny and just like I’d walked off a TV advert! (Shame about my face, but at least the hair looked good!) It stayed like that all day – soft, smooth and tangle-free. There was a slight tea tree smell on my hair all day, but it was fainter than it had been initially and my family said it was pleasant. So overall, I will definitely be using these two products again. The smell isn’t great, but it is bearable and for the results I got, it was definitely worth it – oh, and so am I! <tosses golden locks in slow motion>
