Several months ago I asked Makeup Bag intern Monica Leitner to try out some samples of Avon Advance Techniques hair products.
The funny thing is, after reading Monica’s reviews I had to hit up my local Avon lady to get my own samples of these products. Both the Avon Advance Techniques Volumizing Mousse and Avon Advance Techniques Hair Spray are currently available for $4.00.
The thing that most struck me about Avon Advance Techniques Volumizing Mousse was its texture, as many products on the market labeled “mousse” err toward more of a “foam” in my book. This Avon product offered the best of both worlds: the airy weightlessness of a foam combined with a creamy, whipped mousse consistency (think mousse from the mid ’90s) and a delicious, Tropical Kool-Aid scent to boot! After styling, my hair had a little more body, more control and was completely devoid of any stiffness or stickiness.
The Avon Advance Techniques Hair Spray has a super yummy salon smell, and kept my hair full, controlled and soft without ever feeling sticky or dry. Even after a day of donning a satin headband (very Blair Waldorf) that typically smashes down my hair with no hopes of revival, my hair stayed lifting and tamed. A keeper!
