Avon Planet Spa Mediterranean olive oil hair mask review

So I'll be reviewing my Avon haul in parts... the first product I've used is this hair mask from their Planet Spa line.

Avon PLANET SPA Mediterranean Olive Oil Conditioning Hair Mask

Price: $4.50

What they say: Pamper yourself with the Mediterranean Olive Oil Collection and enrich your skin with a centuries-old beauty tradition. Clinically and dermatologically tested. Pro-vitamin formula provides ultra-conditioning for a healthy-looking shine. 4.2 fl. oz

The good stuff:
  • Thick, rich, creamy formula
  • Definitely smooths, softens, and conditions damaged/color treated hair
  • Keeps hair soft for weeks!

The low-down:

  • The size! I didn't expect it to be so small.
  • Smells... not so good.

My take: Overall, I really LOVE this stuff. Despite the fact that the tube it came in is MUCH smaller than a VO5 bottle (I thought it would be atleast that size) and that it smells pretty bad, it certainly DOES condition your hair and keeps it in tip top shape for a looong time. My hair has been colored, bleached, straightened, blow dried, done up, etc. etc. and is considerably damaged :(

I've been in search for a good hair mask recently and this was such a great find :D You just smooth on a generous amount and leave it on for up to 10 minutes. Once washed off, my hair was soft, smooth, and shiny. And now, over 2 weeks later, it is still soft, smooth, and shiny (: This is a product I would purchase again.


  1. Wow that sounds like a great price for a hair mask that works! I'll definitely have to go check this out. Thanks for the review! :D

  2. hmmm... i've been looking for a good hair mask too... i saw this peppermint "treat me right" hair mask by bedhead... I'm thinking of buying it but it is freaking expensive lol...

  3. I hope this product works well with your hair. Gosh, good hair products that actually work are hard to find :(

  4. Where is the planet spa Mediterranean olive oil hair mask?? Can't find anyone that is still selling it. I love it I bought some other Avon hair mask by planet spa but I did not like it. Go figure every time you find a product that works they do something stupid like get rid of it. Avon please bring it back!!!
