Avon’s Advance Techniques Product Line Launch

Poufy, messy, frizzy, unruly hair.  In Tagalog, buhaghag at parang di nasusuklay at may sariling isip na buhok.  That’s my common hair problem and probably the rest of the Philippine population.

Why?  Because we have a hot and humid weather, and it doesn’t matter what kind of treatment you have to keep a perfect hair here in our country because we can never change the fact that we live in a Tropical country.

We can try to have our hair rebonded or straighten, or have it ironed or blow dried every time you have an affair but that will do our hair more damage to our hair than we think.

When I got the invite to attend a Tres Treat by Avon mentioning the name of Lourd Ramos to do the hair styling or hair cutting whichever I wanted, I did not hesitate but said yes.  I was also curious about the new hair care line Avon is about to launch.

So came the event date yesterday,  the glamorous Mariott Hotel Manila ballroom was turned in to a huge salon the Avon Advanced Technique Lotus Shield Salon.

Guest were treated to a hair makeover, makeup and a photo shoot as a remembrance of our celebrity-like hair.  Hair by Lourd Ramos using the Advance Techniques Lotus Shield, make-up by makeup artist from Makeup Academy using Avon makeup products, glamour profile shots by Jay Tablante.

That’s the big star of the day the Avon Advance Techniques Lotus Shield, a breakthrough hair product that promises long-lasting frizz control that makes unruly hair more manageable, beautifully polished and healthy… regardless of the weather!

Sounds like something all of us need right?  Well it is.

After the Tres Treat we sat down to listen to Avon’s Senior Manager for Product Innovation who was on a live cam chat with us straight from Avon’s Research and Development Facility in New Your, Dr. Sen Yang. He told us about the science behind the Avon patented Advance Techniques Lotus Shield.

The technology used in the product was inspired by the actual lotus leaf which has the ability to repel water on its surface.  Advance Technique Lotus Shield forms a humidity-resistant barrier on the hair’s surface to control frizz and its proven effective even at 97% humidity.

It works on the leaf as it works on this paper and it will work on the hair too Dr. Yang said.

Another exciting component of the product is that its a non-greasy leave-on hair treatment that keeps the hair sleep, bouncy and flawless, just like a movie star!

  1. Pde ko i-try yung Straight and Sleek, nakita ko na toh sa avon brochure eh, But I’m also testing another shampoo if mahihiyang ako dun, same price lang naman halos eh so why not diba?

  2. I want to try the Daily Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Avon never stops to develop innovative products. there’s a new perfume line din di ba? yung Scentini, i love the smell of Plum Twist. 🙂

  3. wow! this is really a fun event! looks like a promising product! can’t wait for your reviews!
