I got these products back in November, in my Avon haul. I bought the Moroccan Argan Oil products as I was suffering from very frizzy hair and they sounded like the best option. I bought the Strengthen & Protect products just as an extra shampoo and conditioner to have in stock.
The shampoo and conditioner from the 360 Nourishment range feature Moroccan argan oil and Vitamin E. The shampoo promises to leave hair feeling smoother, stronger, more manageable and instantly de-tangle hair. The conditioner promises to lock in moisture, leave hair smooth and sleek, eliminate flyaway hairs and help create soft, frizz-free hair.
The formula was good; not too thin or thick and provided good coverage without overuse of the products. The scent was pleasant but I can't describe it as it wasn't a naturally-occurring scent in my opinion. I feel the products did their standard jobs well and did help towards taming my frizzy locks, but they didn't have a huge impact on me or my hair. I feel that what I got out of these products was good value for money and if you're looking for some decent hair products on a budget or to tide you over until you get your hands on a different brand/product, then these could be for you!
The shampoo and conditioner from the Strengthen & Protect range feature arginine, keratin and bamboo extract. The shampoo claims to cleanse without stripping the hair and the conditioner should leave hair de-tangled and feeling stronger.
The shampoo formula is quite gel-like, if that makes sense, and I found I had to use some extra product to get a full coverage. The conditioner formula was good, though. With the first application of these products, I instantly detected a mint scent, which surprised me as it's not listed as a featured ingredient or in the description. But, sure enough, when I checked through the list of ingredients, I found that these products both contain peppermint oil. Yummy! They smell delicious and it's a creamy, sweet-smelling mint scent as opposed to a fresh, zingy, sometimes overpowering mint scent. Just like a peppermint cream!
I found that these products were on the same level as the argan oil products in regards to helping to tame the frizz and they also made my hair really shiny, soft and noticeably de-tangled. The best bit of all is that the peppermint scent lingers delicately on your hair long after use!
I loved the Strengthen & Protect products and I would definitely repurchase them, especially at such a great value prices!
Have you tried either of these ranges? What were your thoughts?

    I've tried both of them and I have to be honest, unfortunately none of them worked on my hair and I felt as if there was a thin layer of residue left on it, even after rinsing out the conditioner. I love a lot of the Avon makeup but I haven't found a hair care product yet that works for me... :/. Xx

    Hi Charlotte, that's a real shame that these products didn't work for you like they did for me. I find it really interesting that the same product can have completely different results on different users. Hopefully Avon will bring out a haircare range soon that will work for you as their prices are great. xxx
