Avon Naturals Hair Care & Advance Techniques Brushes

Pinpointing hair care might be one of the most elusive beauty tasks for me. My hair is on the thin side, oily at the roots which means zero volume but the ends tend to be frizzy and dry as soon as cool air hits us. Considering that we had snow the other day in Sarajevo, I already experienced havoc which central heating brings upon my unfortunate mane. Striking the right balance of fluffy, clean and airy roots whilst ends retain moisture is a hard task indeed. That's a task I still haven't resolved but I am working on it – let's say I'm halfway there. A nature inspired hair care bundle was dropped off my doorstep a while ago and I was thrilled as I certainly (and obviously) need help in the hair care hair department. Hair styling brushes, nourishing shampoo and mask – it's a true hair care kit that appropriate for cooler months! Avon Naturals Super Straight Shampoo & Treatment mask with honey extract and jojoba oil are a power duo for hair that needs some serious TLC. The Naturals range by Avon features basic packaging with a charm and delicious aromas. ‘Super straight’ claims sound great to me as I always tend to wear my hair straight but I must admit that – even though scents probably shouldn't be main reasons why we're drawn to certain products – in this case, the scent wowed me. It's such a yummy, wintery honey scent and I love when my hair smells like that. However, having in mind that this particular range is intended for dry and damaged hair – you can notice the range clash with my hair type, right? Not all is lost, one product really does work amazingly well while the other made a friend very happy.

Pronaci proizvode za njegu kose kojima cu ostati vjerna je jedan od beauty zadataka kojem nekada ne mogu adekvatno odgovoriti. Moja kosa se sastoji od tanjih vlasi i masna je pri korijenu – odmah znate da je volumen nesto sto joj nedostaje a ja uporno pokusavam nadomjestiti njegov nedostatak. Krajevi su skloni suhoci i naelektrisanju koje je narocito izrazeno cim dodje u dodir sa hladnim zrakom. Imajuci u vidu da smo prije neki dan docekali i snijeg u Sarajavu, pracen niskim temperaturama – odmah mozete pretpostaviti kakav nered je centralno grijanje u kombinaciji sa hladnim zrakom izvana ucinilo mojoj kosi. Pronaci i postici balans izmedju prozracnog, cistog tjemena i nahranjenih vrhova kose je zaista tezak zadatak na koji jos uvijek nisam u potpunosti odgovorila ali radim na tome – recimo da sam na pola puta do cilja. Linija proizvoda za kosu koja inspiraciju crpi iz prirode je prije nekog vremena dostavljena na moja vrata – odusevljenje nije izostalo jer je ocigledno da mi je potrebna pomoc na ovom polju. Cetke za stilizovanje kose, hranljivi sampon i maska cine pravi mali kit za zimsku njegu kose! Avon Naturals Super Straight sampon i maska za kosu sa ekstraktom meda i uljem jojobe su mocni dvojac, kreiran za potrebe kose kojoj je hitno potrebna intenzivna njega. Uopsteno je za Naturals kolekciju proizvoda karakteristicna jednostavna ali sarmantna ambalaza te slasni mirisi prirode. ‘Super ravna’ kosa koju su upravo ovaj sampon i maska obecavali itekako su mi dobro djelovali jer najvise volim i nosim ravnu kosu. Iako, priznajem, mirisi ne bi smjeli biti jedan od primarnih razloga zbog kojih nas privlace odredjeni proizvodi – miris ove medene kolekcije me u potpunosti odusevio. Svidja mi se slasna, topla medena aroma koja se danima zadrzava u kosi. Ipak, imajuci u vidu da su ovi proizvodi namijenjeni za suhu i ostecenu kosu – vjerovatno primjecujete da se opis ne slaze u potpunosti sa potrebama konkretno moje kose, zar ne? Nije sve izgubljeno jer jedan od dva proizvoda sam zadrzala i nastavljam ga koristiti dok je drugi pronasao dom kod prijateljice i – ucinio je jako sretnom.

Avon Naturals Super Straight Shampoo with honey extract and jojoba oil (250ml) makes hair amazingly soft, silky, manageable – it got rid of all my tangles single-handedly, that I can attest myself. I think it's an amazing shampoo – for dry, unruly and damaged hair. As mine is on the thin and oily side of things – I gave a friend a chance to test it out for me – and she loved it! My friend Alma has color treated, thick and naturally wavy hair so this shampoo worked a treat for her! She tells me that lather is decent but not over the top, it's of a pearly peach color and it makes combing a lot easier, hair is more shiny and she agrees that the scent is scrumptious. The shampoo also made her hair easier to straighten which she was thrilled about. I think that oily and thin-haired gals should steer clear from this range as it diminishes volume whilst intensely taking care of the ends and the entire length. Avon Naturals Super Straight Treatment mask with honey extract and jojoba oil (125ml), on the other hand, with its almost creamy/gel-like texture (of the same peachy, honey hue of course) is a lot more forgiving and easier to use on almost all hair types. It has the same yummy smell and it makes my ends definitely easier to comb & style and it makes hair much softer to the touch. I like that it's quick as you only need to keep it on your ends for 1-3mins. To fully achieve that straight look, after using this hair mask under the shower, I blow-dry my hair using the Avon Advanced Techniques Large Barrel Hair Brush. It's supposed to make big waves but I just use it to give my hair some body and texture (and to make ends look neat). It's a little robust but it works wonders and provides salon-worthy results! Avon Advance Techniques Soft Cushion Hair Brush is the one I use the most – I use it every day, to be precise. A few years back, I used to have it in red and in pink but I definitely prefer the black coloring. I love this brush as it doesn't pull my hair, it's densely packed bristles give me volume and it doesn't make my ends frizzy + it's easy to use. How is your hair doing in this cool weather?

Avon Naturals Super Straight sampon sa ekstraktom meda i uljem jojobe 250ml (2,50KM uz kupovinu bilo kojeg proizvoda iz brosure str.166-167, Kampanja 15) cini kosu istinski mekanom, svilenkastom i olaksava oblikovanje kose. U potpunosti je uklonio sve ‘cvorice’  koji mi se pojavljuju nakon pranja blizu potiljka. Licno mislim da je ovo izvrstan sampon – za suhu, ostecenu kosu deblje dlake. Posto je moja kosa masna i tanke vlasi – prepustila sam prijateljici detaljno testiranje i procjenu proizvoda. Moja draga prijateljica Alma ima ofarbanu kosu koja je gusta ali i blago valovite teksture. Njeni dojmovi su izuzetno pozitivni – slobodno mogu reci da je odusevljena! Rezimirala je iskustvo sa samponom kao prijatno, da sampon pravi dobru no ne i isuvise bogatu pjenu. Breskvaste je boje bisernog odsjaja a koristenje rezultira potpuno olaksanim rascesljavanjem. Takodjer se slaze da je miris meda jako lijep te da se danima zadrzava u kosi. Ono sto je Almu posebno dojmilo jeste sto je kosa nakon koristenja sampona bila laksa za ravnanje (peglom za kosu). Mislim da bi dame tanke i masne kose mozda trebale preskociti ovaj sampon iz razloga sto, pruzajuci intenzivnu njegu cijelom duzinom kose – volumen jednostavno ne moze da se zadrzi. Avon Naturals Super Straight obnavljajuca maska za kosu sa ekstraktom meda i uljem jojobe 125ml (ponuda u brosuri 1 za 6,50KM/ 3 za 7,50KM str.164-165, Kampanja 15) je dosta vise odgovarala mom tipu kose zahvaljujuci kremasto-gelastoj teksturi (naravno, masku krasi ista breskvasta boja te medeni miris). Vjerujem da bi ova maska mogla odgovarati vecini tipova kose. Cini krajeve kose mnogo meksim, podatnijim za rascesljavanje a i kosa je dosta ljepsa na dodir. Dopada mi se sto brzo djeluje – potrebno je drzati samo 1-3minute na kosi. Kako bih u potpunosti kreirala ravan izgled kose, nakon sto je maska djelovala dok sam bila pod tusem, isfeniram je uz pomoc Avon Advance Techniques siroke cetke za feniranje (10,90KM – Kampanja 15, str.172). Ova cetka moze napraviti i grubo valovitu teksturu no ja je najvise volim koristiti za podizanje kose od tjemena i davanje oblika krajevima. Pomalo je glomazna ali cini cuda i pruza skoro pa salonske rezultate. Cetka koju ipak najcesce koristim – pod time mislim da je koristim svaki dan, je Avon Advance Techniques cetka za jastucicem (6,90KM – Kampanja 15, str.172). Ovo nije prvi put da koristim ovu cetku jer imala sam je prije par godina u crvenoj ali i ruzicastoj boji. Moram priznati da mi se navise svidja u crnoj varijanti ali je jednako efektna kao i prije. Volim je zato sto ne povlaci kosu dok je njom cetkam, njene gusto rasporedjene ‘dlacice’ prave volumen ali ne cine kosu naelektrisanom + izuzetno je jednostavna za koristenje. Da li mozda dijelimo favorite iz ovog posta i zanima me na koji nacin se vasa kosa odupire nevoljama svojstvenim hladnijim mjesecima?
