Thank you bees indeed! And thank you Avon, for bringing us such a fabulous hair care system. The Elastine Propoli Thera Hair Care Line is full of hair care products for every need, and all are made using products made by (and used by) bees.
The products you see pictured above are the ones that I currently use. The Propoli Thera Damage Repair Shampoo, Damage Repair Conditioner, Hair Oil Serum, and Volume Spray.
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, then you may know that I’ve been growing out my hair from a very short undercut Pixie style. I am now 1 year into my grow out. I was using Dr. Groot Shampoo to help with my grow-out and it worked awesomely, and I am now in the managing the grown out natural gray hair stage. I had originally went with a very short hair style because of my thinning hair due to Menopause. I am now past that point and ready to try a longer style again, so there is my background story regarding all this for you. 🙂
My hair has thankfully grown out fuller than I thought it would (thank you Dr. Groot Thickening Shampoo), and I have been using the Propoli Hair Oil Serum and Volume Spray the entire time as well. I’ve added the Shampoo and Conditioner to my full time lineup after trying them (in travel size) in my Avon Travel Kit, plus also testing some salon shampoos and conditioners and seeing which products did a better job at giving me 1) smooth hair (gray hair has a different texture), 2) shiny hair (do not like dull silvers…, and 3) body (gotta have fullness and bounce!).
After testing for over a month, Propoli won out every time on all three counts, and my hair held up better the next day after shampooing and styling.
The Propoli line also has Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, but since I tried the Damage Repair duo and liked it so much, I went with those as my choice. My hair is not damaged, but with gray hair, it can have that type of feel; kind of dry and frizzy, and since this ticks off the body and smoothness boxes, I am very happy with my results using the Damage Repair pair.
The Hair Oil Serum and Volume Spray have been total game changers throughout my 1 year hair grow-out experience and they were a necessity when my hair was short as well. As soon as I towel dry my hair, it wants to automatically go in freak-out frizz mode. Applying the Oil Serum is like magic. It calms my hair instantly and smooths the texture. I then spritz the Volume Spray all over at the roots and I’m ready to style. There is no sticky residue at all. I do go lightly with the Oil Serum. A little goes a long way. I’ve had the same bottle for over a year now and I still have about a 1/3 left, so it is a great investment for $15.99.
Here is Avon’s official description, and the main ingredients are basically the same for all.
