REVIEW: AVON Elastine Propolithera Damage Repair Hair Care

by - March 31, 2020

Hey guys! I have to admit, I'm way more excited for today's review than I thought I would be when I first started trying out the products. As I've mentioned before, I decided that 2020 was going to be the year I care about my hair - and care for it better - and with the first quarter of the month officially gone, I feel like I'm actually sticking to that particular resolution. For about the past month or so, I've been using the AVON Elastine Propolithera Damage Repair Hair Care Products* whenever I wash my hair and I'm super, super excited to share them with you guys!

Formulated with royal jelly to help restore weak and brittle hair, honey help retain moisture, royal jelly to lock in shine and restore natural lustre, this line is designed to repair and soften damaged hair so that it appears smooth and manageable. My first thoughts at this? SIGN ME UP. Smooth, silky, shiny and healthy are exactly what I personally want my hair to look like every single day... and because it's quite long and has been under more stress than usual with heat styling lately, it can end up looking a little... limp. So I was hopeful!

Also, I love, love, love the packaging of the shampoo and conditioner, with it's hexagonal bottle and black mason jar lid packaging with the pump. I honestly think these just look so, so pretty in my shower. And yes, I have no shame in admitting that I like my products to look pretty in my shower.

AVON Elastine Propolithera Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner*
Before I say anything else, the first thing I noticed and the thing I notice every single time I wash it is that these products have a VERY strong scent that sticks around in the hair for literally days - so if you're fragrance sensitive or just don't like the smell of these products, it's probably not going to be something you can overcome with these products. That said, I quite like the smell of this product - sort of like... honeysuckle, maybe? A floral honey scent for sure. Anyway, scent... strong but also really lovely.

Now, I pretty much immediately loved this pairing. The shampoo, which is sulfate free, lathered up really nicely and actually had a really unique feel while I was working it into the hair. It's hard to explain, but it actually felt like it was protecting my hair even as it was cleansing it - sounds strange, I know, but it actually did have a different physical feeling than other shampoos. Upon rinsing, my hair feels clean but it also feels quite soft and I don't get the tangles that I usually get after shampooing my hair. Usually, immediately after rinsing, my hair is basically screaming for conditioner, but with this it just kind of feels nice.

Now, that is definitely not to say that I don't think the conditioner is gorgeous... because THE CONDITIONER IS GORGEOUS. When I use this pairing together, my hair is left feeling so soft and silky once it's dry - like I wanna just run my fingers through it constantly and swing it around like I'm in a hair commercial. It also does really boost the shine and healthiness to the look of my hair without adding heaviness. I was a little bit worried before trying it that this would leave behind a film on my hair and weigh it down, but it actually leaves it feeling really light and airy but really moisturized. This pairing, honestly, has been a little bit magical for my hair. 

AVON Elastine Propolithera Rejuvenating Hair Mask*
Promising to deeply nourish and mend split ends, this mask is really lovely. It's THICK and a little bit goes a long way, so I definitely don't recommend scooping a whole bunch of this mask out of the tub - you'd just be wasting it. In fact, even the instructions say to use about a quarter sized amount and work into the hair from root to tip, leaving on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing out. Honestly, I've left it on for way longer than that... but I don't think it makes much of a difference. 3-5 minutes in the shower while you take care of non-hair business is plenty.

For my hair type, this is about a once everyone couple of weeks type of mask and I've found that if I use it more often than that it actually can build up a little bit and wear my hair down, but for really dry or course hair types this could definitely be a mask you'll reach for 2-3 times a week. It really is deeply nourishing and packs a hell of a lot of moisture in just one application. I've found that if my hair has really been through it - an extra day or two between washings, a lot of heat styling, too long up in a messy bun - this really just brings it back to life and gives it a really healthy look.

I honestly didn't think I was going to love these products as much as I do, but they've really, really impressed me and I love the way my hair looks and feels since I've been using them. Now, one note is that I do feel like the time between my hair needing to be washed has shortened a little bit since using these products, but I actually think that's probably because it's keeping my hair balanced (and I'm someone who, in general, should probably wash her hair a little more often.) Seriously, though, these products are seriously solid and I can't say enough good things about them.
