My Favourite Hair Product!

I love styling my hair and experimenting with different looks. However, I don't like the damage that comes with it. Dry/split ends look disgusting and give me the creeps.

Regular trims are the answer to all hair problems, but when your trying to grow your hair, it doesn't seem so smart.

I have recently started using my all time favourite hair product again which I used to use for YEARS and my hair is looking much better! My mum recently gave me a bottle and I am rediscovering my love for it all over again. It's Avon's advance techniques daily results dry end serum.


I use 2-3 pumps of this serum on towel dried hair which detangles and makes my hair feel so much smoother and easier to manage. If my conditioner is not very good (Lush American Cream for example) this helps drastically! If necessary I use 1 pump on the ends of my hair after blowdrying or styling to seal in my cuticles.


It's a glass bottle that holds 30ml of product and fits in your hand which has a pump applicator. It has a light watery consistency with no oily or greasy residue. (It dries matte on your hand if rubbed in.)


I hate buying 2 different serums for wet and dry hair. This product can be used either way!


INGREDIENTS: CYCLOPENTASILOXANE CYCLOMETHICONE SD ALCOHOL 40-B DIMETHICONE PHENOXYETHANOL CREATINE LAMINARIA DIGITATA EXTRACT PELVETIA CANALICULATA EXTRACT PANTHENOL PHYTANTRIOL ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE PARFUM/FRAGRANCE BENZOPHENONE-2

Usually I would go the natural route, which I had been doing with olive oil and using it as a serum, but it gets so greasy and smelly to use everyday and is better suited as a deep conditioning treatment. This has a non offensive pleasant scent and also contains sunscreen for protection. I have also tried plenty of other serums that don't do a better job but cost 10X the price!

The best part.... Wait for it, is the price!

It's normally £4.80 but I have just checked Avon's website and it's been reduced to £1.95. However, my mum gets ours from the market at 3 for £5. Bargain!

I really like the photos you took of this bottle--and the fact that it's a glass bottle at that. Sounds like something I could use, as my ends easily go dry.

@fantastic thanks, I'm enjoying photography :) a glass bottle for such an affordable product is quite rare, as usually they use plastic packaging. X

Andi said...

Awesome find/re-discovery! I may just have to check that out, for the price--it would be hard to go wrong!

Ah I love it when I see product reviews on things that I love and use daily.

No other serums work as well as this at keeping my ends from splitting.

Brilliant review lovely! xx

Muhsine said...

Oh great, we have the same taste!! I just looooove this product too. And it is hard to believe that such a good product is that inexpensive. My hair always glows when I use it. XOXO

Hi muhsine,

Here in Canada we have a great serum called Marc Antony Smooth, I love it cause all his products are alcohol free. I find alcohol very drying, personally.

I too, like to use a hair oil but find them too greasy or smelly to use at any time aside from before showering. My mother-in-law suggested to me that I try Jasmine Oil, it's light and smells nice.

Evee said...

yayyyy i use this too! :)
love the fact that it doesnt get greasy/oily all over your hands, and it's pretty effective!

Jo said...

I love this too, it smells lovely! Avon's products do not get enough praise in my opinion. xx

Muhsine said...

Catanya said...
