Avon ADVANCE TECHNIQUES Frizz Control Lotus Shield Anti-Frizz Treatment Review
The interesting fact is it claims to keep the hair frizz-free for 2-3 days, even after multiple washes. And I have seen it work. I have used it, shampood and conditioned my hair as usual on the next day, and my hair was still better than normal. But only works if you use mild shampoo love Sauve. On the other hand can cause build up because its so hard to remove, so after 3 days I'd use a clarifying/ purifying shampoo to make sure all the residue is taken care of.
I know its a pretty small container, but it lasts for ages. Because all I need is a little bit of pea size product, to cover my shoulder length 2b hair. I have had this for almost an year now, and this is my 3rd one.
So here is a rundown of how I mostly use this product:
- On freshly washed and conditioned hair as a leave-in. Just a little bit on damp hair and then use a wide tooth comb. Airdry. Gives my hair kind of princess-y waves. frizz-free!!! I mean I have other leave-ins which can tame the frizz to some extent, but nothing works like this one. That three day frizz-free claim is quite right. Since the product is really costly, I only use it when I want my hair to feel special but too lazy to do anything about it.
- Pre blow dry serum. It works as a heat protector. It makes the blow drying process a hell lot easier. I have used this serum and other serum pre-blow dry and the difference is pretty clear. And ofcourse, it keep the hair frizz free...i think my blow dried hair is most prone to frizz than any other state and this serum has been a life saver.
- Second day leave in. Depending on the weather, my hair goes all poof when I wake up in the morning second day after shampooing. So I'll just use a bit of this on my hair first thing in the morning, and its all good.
The only problem with this product is its kind of costly(sells for 12$ on Avon's website, and even more if you want to buy it through facebook pages), compared to my other go to hair leave in serums like Dover, Garnier, V05 etc. Also can cause buildup so you'll need to use a purifying/clarifying shampoo to take it completely off. Oh it can be quite greasy if you use too much.
So I would totally recommenced it to anyone who is suffering from frizz in this summer. Feel free to ask for further info if you're interested...
