Beauty Review: Avon Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules

Beauty Review: Avon Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules

Recently Avon sent me a few samples of products from their new hair care line, including a container of Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. My hair has always been a bit wavy and prone to frizz at the first signs of humidity, and it only got worse when I started highlighting it. So I've always been on the lookout for products that can tame my frizz with a minimum amount of effort required on my behalf. I have yet to find the Holy Grail of de-frizz smoothing serums (currently I apply a dab of Pantene Pro V Restoratives Frizz Control Ultra Smoothing Balm onto damp hair, then blow-dry), but these Avon anti-frizz capsules are among some of the most effective products I've tried—I didn't say they were perfect, but they work on wet or dry hair, helping to smooth frizz and flyaways without making hair (or your hands) feel gross or smell stinky.

What I like most is that you can toss the container in your purse and break open one of the capsules when you're on the go. I used one in a restaurant bathroom after I saw myself in the mirror and gasped at my scare-crow mane. One capsule is enough for my fine hair but everyone's different so I'm not sure how well this product would work for other hair types. I also liked that the serum seemed to dissipate by the next day, meaning I didn't feel as though it weighed my hair down so much that I'd need to shampoo it again. When I run out of this container, I'm not sure I'll buy another because I'm always hoping to find something even better, but I'd definitely recommend these to a friend. Or a reader!

Where to buy: Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules, $5.00 at www.avon.com

These are nice for travel since you can just pack a couple of capsules vs. a bottle or tube of anti-frizz product.

I personally love Redken Glass 01! It's is a little pricey about 16.99 for a 4oz bottle, at Hair Cuttery Salons. But it is a amzaing! A tinie tiny bit goes a long way. I have long thick straight hair, about two feet long. You use less than a dime size on on dry hair after blow drying and it works amazing! I absolutely love!!! And it last so the 17 bucks streches about 6 months, or longer!

I have thick wavy-ish hair that no styling product has ever worked effectively on until I tried Living Proof no frizz. It's not cheap ($24 for 4 oz.), but it has literally changed my hair and it does exactly what it says it will. I live in North Carolina and even in the humidity my hair stays smoothe and it doesn't weigh my hair down and make it greasey feeling. Even at the beach in Alabama last year my hair looked great.

I've liked Avon products I've tried so far, so will definitely give it a go since my hair looks as if I got struck by lightning for the most part.

I use these and I love them! I have thick straight hair, prone to frizz. I carry them around in my bag and they don't weigh down my hair. The reason I love them: they leave my hair with a beautiful shine that makes it look healthy, not greasy.
