Beauty Blast: Advance Techniques Volumizing Mousse, Smoothing Serum, and Anti-Frizz Capsules

It’s been a hot minute since I reviewed some hair products for you ladies but have no fear!  I have some more hair goodies that I got to try out and they came right in time for summer!  Living in Florida, the summers are especially brutal between the sun drying out your ends and the humidity bringing on sudden attacks of the frizzies.  Neither scenario spells fabulous hair so having the right hair products is absolutely essential!  So what’s up on the Fierce Beauty Review? Three summer friendly products from Avon’s Advance Techniques Hair Care Collection.

Volumizing Mousse


Before I go into my review, I have a confession:  I have never used mousse in my hair.  So I was very leary of trying this one out, but after a few weeks it all worked out!  This volumizing mousse is forumlated with Creatine and smart styling polymers to promote thicker and fuller feeling hair. It worked for those days when I wanted to sport a curly look that can withstand the sudden rain showers and sticky humidity.  After washing and conditioning my hair, I applied a small amount of mouse to my wet, curly hair.  As my hair air-dried, the mousse did a great job holding my curls and giving my hair great volume.  My hair didn’t turn into a messy fro, which it would be if I let it dried on its own.  It also didn’t leave my hair feeling sticky and super stiff.

Smoothing Serum


While the mousse was meant to give your hair oomph, this serum is formulated to do the opposite – minimiz volume, keep those nasty frizzies away, and tame flyaways.  I like that fact that you don’t need much of this serum to do the job.  I tried applying the serum before I drying my hair, but it left my hair too soft and unable to dry as straight as I want it to.  Using it on my hair when it was dry was a lot better, giving it plenty of shine and keeping every hair in place!

Anti-Frizz Capsules


If you want a cool way to apply hair product to your hair, these capsules are it!  All you do is twist open these pilll-like capsules over your hair and a serum that works pretty much in the same way the smoothing serum does come out.  Other than that, it gave me the same results as the smoothing serum.
