Seal Out Frizz With A Lasting Formula

Weeks before I'd received a sample, friends and family were asking me if I'd tried Avon's new Advanced Techniques Lotus Shield Anti-Frizz Treatment. The buzz about this breakthrough product was especially strong, so I was eager to see if it would live up to the hype.

If there was ever a challenge to prove Lotus Shield's effectiveness, my fiercely frizzy hair is it. After giving it a good shake, I applied the lotion-like concoction to my damp strands and, although it's not necessary, I waited a little while before applying any other styling products. In that time, I definitely noticed a change in my hair's texture-it wasn't drying as scraggily as usual.

Once my hair was through drying naturally, it was noticeably less puffy than its typical finished state. Although it didn't feel remarkably soft, it surely looked much smoother than it usually does. And when I added my usual styling products, it only looked better-not weighed down or greasy, as I feared.

And because I don't wash my hair every day, the three-day effect is exactly what I need for dealing with South Florida humidity.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, there's no actual lotus in the ingredients. Lotus leaf simply served as the water-repelling inspiration for the technology in this impressive formula.
