Beauty Blast: Avon Advance Techniques Lotus Shield

Living in a place where the humidity can get so thick you can’t breathe, I have had some frizzy hair days.  It pains me to spend so much time making my hair look nice and sleek only to step outside and have it turn into a frizzy pouf ball.  I’ve used anti-frizz products (like these) but if I forget to use them before going out, the battle of the frizz will be lost!  Just in time for summer, Avon has launched Advance Techniques Lotus Shield ( on sale for $9.99), an anti-frizz product that promises to fight the frizz for three whole days!  Taking a cue from the lotus leaf plant, this product adds a “waterproof” layer to your hair, keeping it immune from up to 97% humidity.  After a week of use, Lotus Shield promises to:

  • Minimizes excess frizz, volume and poufiness
  • Provides frizz control that lasts
  • Prevents frizz and flyaways even in high humidity
  • Retains and protects style no matter what the weather


So I put it to the test, applying after washing my hair for the past three weeks and here’s the verdict:

This product is amazing! I haven’t been this in love with a product since SJP NYC! After using it as directed, I took advantage of the rainy opportunities to go out with my hair freshly straightened to see how it would hold up.  My hair didn’t even think about frizzing out on me and I was truly amazed!  I didn’t have to add any extra product to my hair to help it behave, which is a definite plus!  The product itself is very light and smells wonderful!  I’m totally sold on Lotus Shield and it will remain a permanent fixture in my hair regimen!
