My first review and giveaway, I'm so excited. Thanks so much to MomSelect and Avon!
I had the opportunity to try Avon Advance Techniques Professional Hair Care Instant Recharge Treatment. I received several varieties and tried the Intense Repair, which states it is for dry, damaged hair. Since this is winter in Minnesota, I figured dry just about sums it all up.
The product comes in a box with four separate weekly treatments and looks a little like the hot oil treatments I used way back in high school. Unlike the hot oil treatments, these required no preheating (a major plus- with 3 small kids, I like things streamlined). There was more than enough product in one tube to treat my just-past-shoulder-length hair. The first thing I noticed was the scent; it was reminiscent of my Pantene days. The next thing I noticed (and this is my only complaint) is how easy it is to lose the little white cap on the floor of a white bathtub! I had to get down on my hands and knees ('cause I am blind without my glasses) to find it before it went down the drain. Okay, it was actually kind of funny in retrospect.
Then the results; my hair was softer and more manageable all week, and after the second week's treatment it was even softer still. I am sold, the product really works.
