Review*: Avon Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Hair-Care Line

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Hello ladies, 
at the end of July I was sent the entire range of the new Avon Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Hair-Care line. I was very intrigued by the BB name and their 10 benefits claim, as I absolutely love BB creams for my face, so I had high hopes for something with a similar concept for my hair.
I took my time and properly tested out all the products and now it's finally time to share my thoughts with you.

Pozdravljene punce,
na koncu julija sem v testiranje prejela celotno linijo Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB, ki jo je Avon dodal k svojim že obstoječim linijam za nego las. Ker sem velika ljubiteljica BB krem za obraz, in ker celotna linija obljublja kar 10 prednosti, sem imela visoka pričakovanja za BB izdelke za lase.
Izdelke sem v tem preteklem času dodobra preizkusila in danes je čas, da z vami delim mnenje o njih.

Avon, review, Advanced Techniques, Absolute Perfection BB
The line promises to have 10 different benefits and advanced shield technology. These benefits are; take care of your hair, protect, nourish, improve the shine, help against humidity, smooth, maintain the hydration in your hair, tame curls, make your hair silky smooth, and make styling easier.
In this line there are a shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and conditioner. Recently they also added a XL 400 ml shampoo. 
All products came packaged in a sleek, black tubes that aren't anything special, but the gold writing adds something extra to them.
I also think I should add a few details about my hair: it's pretty normal, with a bit more dry(ish) ends. Although I colour it and use heat on it, it's not damaged and has a decent amount of shine to it naturally. But I do have a very sensitive scalp that gets itchy and full of dandruff extremely easily. I also have naturally thick, curly and frizzy hair.

Kot sem omenila, linija obljublja kar 10 prednosti z napredno tehnologijo ščitenja las. Linija naj bi: negovala, zaščitila, nahranila, izboljšala lesk, delovala proti vlažnosti iz okolja, ukrotila kodre, podarila svilnato mehkobo in olajšala oblikovanje.
Znotraj linije so šampon, balzam, maska za lase in balzam za lase brez izpiranja, pred kratkim pa so dodali še XL 400 ml šampon. 
Vsi izdelki imajo črno embalažo, ki roko na srce ni nič kaj posebnega, vendar jo popestri zlata pisava.
Naj dodam še par besed o mojem tipu las, ki je normalen z malce bolj suhimi konicami. Kljub temu, da si lase barvam in redno uporabljam različne pripomočke za oblikovanje, moji lasje na srečo niso poškodovani. So pa kodrasti, gosti in imajo kar nekaj naravnega leska. Moj ''problem'' pa je izredno občutljivo lasišče, ki ob uporabi nekaterih izdelkov hitro postane zelo srbeče in polno prhljaja.

Avon, Advanced Techniques, Absolute Perfection, BB Shampoo
Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Shampoo comes in a 250 ml bottle. The scent of this shampoo (and also the conditioner) is pretty specific and quite strong, but after some time I got used to it. It's not my favourite, but it doesn't bother me either.
It has a very silky consistency that is on the more runny side, but I don't need a lot of the product since it does lather up really nicely. I found this shampoo to be nicely nourishing and after I used it a couple of times, I definitely had to use a clarifying shampoo to prevent any build-ups.
The 250 ml bottle currently retails for 2,30€ (marked down from 4,50€) and the 400 ml bottle retails for 3€ (marked down from 5,50€). 
It's definitely a true bargain, and in my opinion it's worth purchasing if you don't have extremely dry or oily hair.

Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB šampon se nahaja v 250 ml pakiranju. Ima zelo specifičen in precej močan vonj, na katerega sem se sčasoma navadila, vendar mi še vedno ni najljubši.
Ima svilnato teksturo, ki je bolj tekoča, vendar kljub temu ne potrebujemo veliko količino izdelka, saj se le-ta z lahkoto peni. Zame osebno je ta šampon dovolj hranilen in vlažilen, po nekaj uporabah pa sem definitivno morala uporabiti čistilni šampon, za bolj učinkovito čiščenje lasišča.
Za 250 ml izdelka boste trenutno odštele 2,30€ (redna cena 4,50€), za 400 ml pa 3€ (redna cena 5,50€).
Nedvomno gre za cenovno zelo ugoden šampon, ki bo opravil svoje delo v kolikor nimate izredno suhih ali mastnih las. 

Avon, Advanced Techniques, Absolute Perfection, BB Conditioner
 Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Conditioner also comes in a 250 ml bottle and also retails for 2,30€ (down from 4,50€). It also has the same scent as the shampoo.
As far as the formula goes, it has a thicker consistency with a more creamy texture, but the consistency still isn't as thick as with my favourite conditioners.
I have to say that I wasn't completely wowed by this product. It's a nice, fuss-free conditioner that works nicely with the shampoo, but it doesn't provide any extreme hydration or gives that umpf to your hair. 
Again, if you have extremely dry hair you probably won't like it, but I actually think this might work even for those of you who have more oily hair.

Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB balzam ima prav tako 250 ml pakiranje in prav takšen vonj kot šampon. Tudi zanj boste trenutno odštele 2,30€ (redna cena 4,50€).
Balzam ima gostejšo in bolj kremasto teksturo, a še vedno ne tako gosto kot jo imajo meni najljubši balzami.
Priznam, da me izdelek ni čisto prevzel. Res je, da gre za dober balzam, ki opravi svoje delo, vendar mojim lasem ne podari pretirane navlaženosti in mehkobe, kot to naredijo nekateri drugi balzami.
Tudi ta izdelek, po mojem mnenju, ne bo navdušil oseb z izredno suhimi lasmi, menim pa, da bi znal delovati tudi pri osebah z bolj mastnim lasiščem.

Avon, Advanced Techniques, Absolute Perfection, BB Treatment mask
Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Treatment Mask is hands down my favourite product of the bunch. It comes in a 150 ml pot, that honestly looks quite cheap, but I'm more focused on what's on the inside.
Once again, I'm normally used to thicker masks, but this one has a lovely lightweight and creamy consistency. It also has a much more pleasant and sweeter scent than the shampoo & conditioner, which is another thing that I like. 
You're supposed to leave it on for 3 minutes and after that my hair is ridiculously soft, smooth and hydrated. As you can see I have barely any of it left and that's because I got my sister and my mum hooked on it too.
My hairdresser advised me to ditch the conditioner when we went to the seaside and use a hair mask instead, and I decided to take this one with me. I truly believed this (with a help of Redken Extreme Anti-Snap and Orofluido Hair Oil)  saved my hair since it always looks a bit dead and needs a decent chop once I come back from the seaside, but this time it was in a really good condition.
It also seems to work wonders with hair that gets tangled and knotty very easily, since my sister has a major problem with that, and this helps to prevent or get rid of any tangles she might have very efficiently.
It currently retails for 4,10€ (marked down from 5,50€) and it's the product I'll be repurchasing for sure.

Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB maska za lase pa je nedvomno moj najljubši izdelek iz te linije. Nahaja se v 150 ml lončku, ki ne izgleda pretirano elegantno, vendar je bolj kot zunanjost pomembna sama notranjost in učinek izdelka.
Kljub temu, da sem do sedaj uporabljala gostejše maske za lase, me je ta maska navdušila s svojo lahkotno in kremasto teksturo. Ima veliko prijetnejši in sladkejši vonj kot šampon in balzam, kar je še ena pozitivna stvar.
Na laseh bi jo naj pustili približno 3 minute, po nanosu pa so moji lasje izjemno mehki, gladki in navlaženi. Kot lahko vidite je moja že skoraj prazna, saj sem nad njo navdušila tudi mojo mamo in sestro.
Menim, da je bil to eden izmed izdelkov, ki je rešil moje lase med tem poletjem, saj sem na morje po nasvetu frizerke raje kot balzam s sabo vzela to masko. Ponavadi so moji lasje po tednu sonca in slanega morja videti popolnoma izčrpani in potrebni striženja, tokrat pa se mi je temu uspelo izgoniti.
Po mnenju moje sestre je ta maska tudi izredno učinkovita na laseh, ki se radi zapletajo in se težko razčešejo.
Trenutno je v katalogu na voljo za 4,10€ (drugače 5,50€) in sama jo bom v prihodnosti definitivno ponovno kupila.

Avon, Advanced Techniques, Absolute Perfection, BB Beauty Balm Leave in treatment
 Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB Beauty Balm Leave in Treatment also comes in a 150 ml squeeze tube and it's the only product that also comes packaged in a box. It currently retails for 4,10€, otherwise for 6€. 
This one has the most runny formula of them all, it's actually quite annoying, since it just pours out of the tube almost every time you open it. It also has a different scent, and it's probably my least favourite one. You can use it on towelled dried hair, or completely dry hair before using heat tolls as it supposedly also works as a heat protector.
The product itself is a bit of a miss for me. I love all the things that it promises, but it fails to deliver the majority of them. The only claim(s) I would agree on, is the one that promises to tame the curls (although I would say it more helps to define them), and that it works as a heat protector since there's no way I can truly know if it does that or not, but it does sound reassuring. I would definitely not say that this helps to make your hair smooth, silky, or hydrated, as my hair looks even a bit more frizzy than usual and noticeably crispy, like it does when I use a texturising spray or something like that.
I prefer using it on towelled dry hair, when I know I'll be curling my hair the next day, since it does give my natural hair a bit more definition & texture, and also seems to hold the curls a bit more. But I definitely don't like to use it on completely dry hair or if I'm not curling my hair, as it makes my hair too crispy and dried-up for my liking.

Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB balzam za lase brez izpiranja se nahaja v 150 ml tubici in je edini izdelek, ki pride zapakiran v kartonasti škatlici. Trenutno je na voljo za 4,10€, drugače pa je redna cena 6€.
Ta izdelek ima najbolj tekočo teksturo, ki zna biti kar nadležna saj se skoraj vedno, ko odpremo embalažo, nekaj izdelka kar izlije ven. Tudi ta ima drugače vonj kot ostali izdelki, in priznati moram, da je meni najbolj moteč od vseh.
Balzam za lase brez izpiranja lahko uporabljamo na laseh posušenih z brisačo ali pa tudi na popolnoma suhih laseh, saj naj bi deloval tudi kot toplotna zaščita.
Kljub temu, da so mi vse stvari, ki jih obljublja zelo všeč, me je izdelek pustil hladno, saj svojih obljub ne izpolni. Strinjam se, da ukroti kodre oz. jih pomaga definirati, poleg tega pa lahko rečem, da deluje tudi kot toplotna zaščita, saj tega dejansko ne morem preveriti in zavrniti. Vseh ostalih obljub pa na žalost ne izpolni.
Definitivno se ne strinjam, da izdelek nahrani, zgladi, navlaži lase ali jih naredi mehke, saj moji lasje izgledajo bolj ''frizzy'' in so občutno izsušeni na dotik. Sama ga uporabljam samo na laseh posušenih z brisačo, kadar vem, da bom na laseh uporabila kodralnik, saj mojim naravnim lasem doda malce definiranosti in teksture, prav tako pa pomaga kodre obdržati na svojem mestu. Ne maram pa ga uporabljati na suhih laseh ali kadar le-teh ne bom skodrala, saj mi ni všeč občutek in videz izsušenih las.

Although I haven't tried a lot of hair-care products from Avon, I do think this Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB line is a nice addition. It's an affordable range that does make your hair feel soft and smooth, and when you using all product together, also makes it more shiny. These products also didn't irritate my scalp, which is always a major bonus for me.
The outstanding product for me is definitely the treatment mask, that all of the hair types might like, and that's definitely worth the purchase, but I would rather pass on the beauty balm leave in treatment.

Kljub temu, da še nisem preizkusila veliko število Avonovih izdelkov za lase menim, da je Advanced Techniques Absolute Perfection BB linija dober dodatek k že obstoječim. Gre za cenovno ugodno linijo, katere izdelki v kombinaciji drug z drugim lase naredijo mehke in gladke, dodajo pa tudi nekaj sijaja. Izdelki so se razumeli tudi z mojim občutljivim lasiščem, kar mi je še posebej všeč.
Nedvomna zmagovalka v mojim očeh je seveda maska za lase, ki bi najverjetneje bila primerna za prav vse tipe las, bi se pa glede na izkušnje izognila nakupu balzama za lase brez izpiranja.

What's your favourite product from the Avon hair-care line?

  1. Jaz sem enako doživela to linijo. Vse mi je dokaj dobro, razen leave in, mi nikakor ne ustreza. Samo za več volumna ob kakšnem kodranju, kot si napisala :). Maska je res super, pa tudi balzam je meni zelo všeč :). Če imaš suhe konice in iščeš kak bolj vlažilen balzam je njihova Advanced Techniques Argan Oil linija fantastična. :)
