Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Hair Range

3/04/2015



I've gotten into a hair care frenzy as of late, testing and trialling different products that promise to make my tresses as fabulous as they can get. In theory, they all do as promised but in real life - you simply have to separate the bolt-ons from the downers. And as the story goes with most ranges - you just know that some items you'll fall madly in love with others you can live without. The exact same thing happened with the Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Hair Range which I was testing for the past month. This range promises to deliver salon-worthy results with the aid of five precious oils (macadamia oil, camelia seed oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil and marula oil) - the so called Nutri 5 Complex. Definitely sound promising and I do love my oils but right off the bat, I have to say that I don't find this range particularly suited for all hair types - I'll elaborate a tad later. The range consists out of a shampoo, 2in1 conditioner and mask, weekly treatment and an oil spray. One product kicked me right out of my socks (it's that good!), one was solid, one meh-ish and one a total disappointment (I'll elaborate on that as well). Lets us start with the Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Shampoo 250ml.  All products from the range feature a matte black packaging with gold accents. The shampoo is supposed to be intended for all hair types with accent on leaving the hair luxuriously nourished. The texture of this shampoo is gel-like and honey-hued with a sweet nutty scent that makes me think of light suntan lotions. I found that it's perfect for days when I wash my hair frequently (e.g. prior and after the gym) as it generously foams up and little goes a truly long way but it doesn't strip it down and it leaves it quite nourished. It can be a tad heavy for oily roots if used all the time but dry hair would love it. It definitely cleanses adequately but also imparts a fair whack of nourishment. It's a rather solid drugstore shampoo.

U toku je temeljito testiranje proizvoda za kosu koje ukljucuje najrazlicitije proizvode a traje vec mjesecima. Koliko god iskustva imala iza sebe glede testiranja, uvijek se ponadam da cu prije ili kasnije pronaci bas nesto posebno sto ce uciniti odrzavanje u kucnoj atmosferi utoliko laksim. U toku tog silnog testiranja je sasvim normalno da cu naici na neke fantasticne ali i neke ispodprosjecne proizvode - pogotovo kada su cjelokupne linije njege kose u pitanju. Upravo se to desilo sa Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils linijom koju sam intenzivno isprobavala i procjenjivala tokom mjesec dana. Ovi proizvodi obecavaju rezultate ravne onima iz salona uz pomoc pet dragocjenih ulja (makadamije, sjemenki kamelije, badema, sjemenki grozdja i marule) - objedinjenih pod nazivom Nutri 5 Kompleks. Sve navedeno zaista djeluje obecavajuce zanimljivo jer sam ljubiteljica ulja no odmah cu spomenuti kako ne smatram ovu liniju pogodnom za sve tipove kose. Na sta tacno mislim mozete procitati kasnije. Linija se sastoji od sampona, regeneratora, ulja u spreju i tretmana za krajeve. Jedan od tih proizvoda me izabcio iz carapa kako se kaze (toliko mi se dopao), jedan je zaista solidan, jedan na granici prihvatljivosti dok je jedan za mene veliko razocarenje (elaborirati cu u nastavku). Zapocnimo sa Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils samponom za kosu 250ml (5,50KM). Svi proizvodi iz navedene linije su jako slicnog pakovanja od crne mat plastike sa zlatnim detaljima. Sampon je navodno namijenjen svim tipovima kose sa naglaskom na pruzanje hranljivih sastojaka. Tekstura je gelasta i njezne boje ambre te je slatkog orasastog mirisa koji me na mahove asocira na suptilne losione za suncanje. Zapazila sam da mi ovaj sampon najvise odgovara tokom perioda kada cesto perem kosu (prije i poslije odlaska u teretanu) jer je potrebna mala kolicina po samponiranju, stvara lijepu i bogatu pjenu a ne isusuje kosu i ostavlja je prilicno njegovanom. Mogao bi biti isuvise tezak za cestu upotrebu ako ste vlasnica masnog tjemena no vjerujem da bi suhoj kosi mnogo odgovarao. Rekla bih da je ovo jedan jako dobar, solidan sampon prihvatljive cijene.




Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Conditioner 250ml can be used as a classic conditioner when left on for 1 minute and as a mask if left for 3 minutes on the hair. It's of a ivory coloring, contains shimmery particles (which do rinse out) and the sweet nutty scent I've previously mentioned. It's of a rather runny texture which has actually surprised me as I had expected a more substantial quality. I must admit that I'm not a fan of the texture as it slips, drips and slides off my wet hair like crazy when I'm under the shower. I feel as it doesn't cling well to the hair and it simply slides off, not giving much time for it to work. And it is a solid drugstore conditioner in itself - I'm just not a fan of the texture. Those same feelings are amplified in the case of Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Intense Radiance Treatment 50ml. I figured, okay - the conditioner was runny, than this tiny tube must be very concentrated and I was looking forward to the richness I had already imagined to be. Unfortunately, the treatment is even runnier than the conditioner which I dislike. In fact, this product left me unamused and confused - I'd be infuriated to order it instead of the conditioner expecting a better, more substantial, richer product to receive a slushie that doesn't do anything for my hair. Not to mention that the 50ml of slush drips off the hair in two uses. What a waste. And keep in mind that my hair is fine, oily at the roots with dry ends. This treatment made no difference to them and to be honest, the conditioner is superior. I'd opt for the conditioner to get some mild care and I really feel that this treatment is a fail for the brand. 

Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils regenerator 250ml (5,50KM) se moze koristiti kao klasicni regenerator ukoliko ga na kosi drzite 1 minutu ali se moze koristiti i kao maska za kosu (vrijeme drzanja 3 minute). Boje je bjelokosti i sadrzi sitne svjetlucave cestice koje nemaju prakticnu ulogu no simpatican su detalj (ispiru se). Regenerator je takodjer slatkog orasastog mirisa no i dosta rijetke teksture koja me dosta iznenadila. Ocekivala sam nesto konkretniju teksturu zbog navoda o hranljivosti i moram priznati da nisam ljubiteljica ove vrste regeneratora. Zasto? Iz razloga sto odmah po nanosenju ovaj regenerator klizi, kapa i jednostavno silazi sa krajeva kose, ne ostavljajuci mnogo proizvoda na krajevima koji bi radio svoj posao. Ovo je zaista steta jer sam primjetila da cak i uz takav nedostatak ipak pruza jednu pristojnu njegu nezahtjevnim krajevima kose. Da se radi o nesto guscoj, kremastijoj teksturi bila bih mu privrzenija. Svi ovi dojmovi su dodatno naglaseni u slucaju Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils hranljivog tretmana 50ml (5,90KM). Pomislila sam da, ako je vec regenerator rijedak, onda ovaj hranljivi tretman mora biti koncentriran te sam se radovala bogatoj formulaciji koju sam zamislila. Nazalost, tretman je jos rijedje teksture od regeneratora sto mi je veliko razocarenje. Ustvari, ovaj me proizvod do odredjene granice zbunio - licno bih bila jako nezadovoljna kada bih umjesto regeneratora narucila ovaj tretman jer bih ocekivala nesto hranljivije, bogatije, intenzivnije. Tretman je vodenaste teksture koja uopste nema efekta na moju kosu. Jos jedna otezavajuca okolnost je mala kolicina od 50ml koju sam istrosila u samo dva koristenja (zbog kliske, vodenaste formulacije) sto nije ekonomicno. Imajte na umu da je moja kosa tanka, masnog korijena i suhih krajeva pa bih rekla da se regenerator pokazao superiornijim, bez obzira i na njegove mane. U svakom slucaju bih radije odabrala regenerator dok je ovaj tretman jedno od iskustava koja ne bih ponavljala.



Finally we come to the absolute star of the range which is the amazing Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils Duo Treatment Spray 100ml. I love this spray! I think that it's the only product from the range that delivers what the entire range promises and those are salon-worthy results. It's a bi-phase type of spray meaning that with shaking things up, oil and water mix into an amber-hued mist which does wonders for my hair. I use it after washing my hair and before blow drying it (3-4 spritzes). It's of a very light consistency despite containing potent oils and I love it for not drying out my ends although it contains alcohol. On the other hand, my husband has extremely thick, healthy hair and he said that it did dry out his ends. It seems that it depends on how your hair responds to alcohol, more than what thickness it has that makes this (or not) a deal breaker. Thankfully, my thin hair handles the alcohol well and gets the most out of the rest of ingredients. This spray nourishes my ends (without weighing them) and preps them for blow drying after which I'm left with well shaped and shiny ends. It seems that it also has a light hold. Hair is soft, supple and beautiful! The spray has the same sweet nutty scent which I like and I've noticed that my ends hold their shape better when I use this spray on them. It's not a perfect product but it suits my hair and it's the only product from the range I'd be willing to repurchase so it has my recommendation.

Napokon dolazimo do apsolutne zvijezde cjelokupne Supreme Oils linije - rijec je o fantasticnom Avon Advance Techniques Supreme Oils dvofaznom uljnom spreju 100ml (7,50KM). Ja sam zaljubljena u njega! Mislim da je ustvari jedini proizvod iz cijele linije koji zaista cini sve sto brend obecava a to su rezultati poput onih iz salona. Radi se o dvofaznom uljnom spreju, sto znaci da se muckanjem mijesaju uljna i vodena polovica u mlijecno zlacanu izmaglicu koja ostavlja divan efekat na mojoj kosi. Koristim ga na krajevima nakon samponiranja a prije susenja kose (3-4 sprica). Dosta je lagane teksture iako je bogat hranljivim uljima i jako mi je bitno sto mi ne isusuje kosu uprkos cinjenici da sadrzi alkohol. Sa druge strane, suprug kojem je kosa gusta i debele dlake mi je rekao da je njemu alkohol u ovom spreju isusio kosu. Mene ovo navodi na zakljucak da ce vam se (ili nece) dopasti ovaj sprej ovisno o toleranciji vase kose na alkohol dok sama gustoca kose nije presudan faktor. Na srecu, moja tanka kosa dobro podnosi alkohol koji ne isusuje krajeve u ovom slucaju. U sustini, ono sto meni ovaj sprej pruza je intenzivna njega bez otezavanja kose i predstavlja pripremu za susenje kose fenom nakon cega mi ona poprima oblik jako slican onom nakon profesionalnog feniranja. Pod dojmom sam da ovaj sprej blago oblikuje kosu koja je ujedno mekana, podatna i sjajna nakon koristenja. Uljani sprej je istog slatko orasasrog mirisa kao i ostali proizvodi iz ove linije. Reci cu vam da je on jedini proizvod koji bih ponovo nabavila iz ove linije i od mene dobija odlicnu ocjenu. Da li ste mozda isprobale Supreme Oils liniju? Ukoliko jeste, pozivam vas da sam mnom podijelite svoja iskustva i dojmove.
