Save time on your hair with bhave Smoothe treatment

Sponsored by bhave

My hair is no stranger to all kinds of in-salon treatments designed to bring it under some kind of manageable control.

Chemical straightening? Yes, I’ve been on the receiving end of that. Had it done a couple of times about a decade ago and used to marvel at how I’d wash it and it would dry as if someone had snuck in and ironed it with styling irons while I wasn’t looking. Not so good when it started to grow out and you’d have a boofy bit up top and straight towards the ends. Also not so good for long-term hair health.

Then keratin treatments came along. I jumped on board that hair-taming train as quickly as my salon got its hands on it. Jumped off just as quickly when it was revealed the main system in circulation in Australia at the time contained formaldehyde.

So when I rocked up three months ago to put my hair on the line to experience an Australian in-salon, keratin hair taming treatment that didn’t contain any nasties, I did so with open and highly excited mind and hair cuticles.

You see, I loved the results of treatments I’d received in the past – they made my life easier. I just didn’t want to sacrifice my hair or potential health in the process.

So if there was now a treatment available that meant I didn’t have to sacrifice anything for more manageable hair then I wanted in.

And in is what I got with bhave Smoothe.

About bhave Smoothe

1. bhave is NOT a straightening treatment. Yes, at the end of the in-salon process and until your first hair wash it will be straight because of the process involved (more on that below) but it doesn’t restructure the hair cuticle. It infuses it with keratin. Curls are softened, waves are smoothed. Hair retains movement and body. All is right in your hair world.

2. bhave improves the health of your hair. My hair is fine but there is lots of it. It easily dries out so it “drinks” up this kind of treatment. The Smoothe formulation employs innovative amino cell rebuild technology that improves and restores every hair strand with keratin, argan oil, collagen and silk amino acids.

3. bhave smoothe is free of chemical nasties and not tested on animals. It’s formaldehyde-free and doesn’t contain parabens, sulphates or sodium chloride (salt, which affects coloured and keratin-treated hair). It’s not tested on animals.

The process

before bhave smoothe keratin treatment

I’m no stranger to spending quality time in the salon chair. All up this treatment took just under three hours on my shoulder-length, thick head of hair.

If you colour your hair using bleach highlights, it’s suggested that you have your colour freshened up a couple of weeks BEFORE this treatment. For brunettes and redheads, it’s recommended that you have a colour touch-up one week or two to three washes AFTER treatment.

First your hair is shampooed with a special shampoo designed to open up the hair shaft ready for the keratin. It will feel scratchy and straw like. Just go with it.

It’s then fully dried off with a blow dryer before the Smoothe system is applied with a brush and comb to 1cm sections of hair – much like you would apply a semi-permanent colour. The formula smells like a banana paddle pop so pleasantly devoid of any chemical-type odour.

bhave smoothe keratin treatment

My hair “drunk” in the formula. Couldn’t get enough of it.

Any residue of product not absorbed by the hair was rinsed off before being blow dried again to 100% dry. You can still feel the product in the hair as the hair cuticle is still open.

Closing the hair cuticle happens with a styling iron working on ironing 1cm sections of the hair. Leaving you with a poker straight finish as you walk out of the salon.

After-care

For 48 hours after your treatment, there are steps you need to take to ensure your treatment does just what it should for your hair.

Don’t shampoo or use styling products in your hair during this time.

Don’t use clips or hair ties to avoid bends in the hair forming. If hair becomes wet (in the shower do use a shower cap!) or bends do form, then the section of hair affected should be blow dried straight and straightened with a flat iron as soon as possible.

It’s not overly restrictive but does require a bit of planning to make sure your hair fits in with your life for a couple of days.

Two days later I washed my hair and let it dry naturally. And this was the result. I was impressed. That’s my natural wave at the back “tamed”, my hair is shining and there is a distinct lack of frizz … with zero styling on my behalf.

How long will it last?

bhave Smoothe will last up to four months. This depends on your hair type, how you care for your hair and how often you wash it. At the three month mark, I’m now starting to see and feel the ends of the hair not being as manageable as they were but the overall hair health is still vastly improved.

To ensure you get maximum benefits from the Smoothe treatment, use care and styling products that are free from sulphates and sodium chloride as these chemicals will pull the keratin that has bonded to the cuticle layer of the hair.

bhave has its own range of products that your hair will get benefits from even without a Smoothe treatment. It’s also paraben-free. I’ve been consistently using the Scalp shampoo (very good on my dodgy scalp), interspersed with Bombshell Blonde shampoo and then finishing with either the Rescue Intense Repair conditioner or Deep Intense Conditioning Masque.

bhave home care and styling products

When it comes to styling, my number one go-to bhave product has been the Leave-In creme. It leaves my hair incredibly soft and even easier to style. Now, I find that Fresh Ends is a real help with the drier ends of hair that are starting to want something more as my treatment nears the end of its effect on my hair.

You should also protect your hair before swimming in sea or pool water – this is as easy as applying the Leave-In Creme before swimming.

I also take all my care and styling products along with me if having a salon blow dry or colour at a salon that doesn’t stock bhave. Doing this keeps consistency in my after-care and longevity in the treatment.

The cost of bhave Smoothe is dependent on individual hair length and density but starts from $199. For my hair it would be about $250.

The benefits

For about $60 a month (based on lasting about four months) I’ve been able to devote significantly less time to styling my hair.

I don’t wear my “busy” status as a badge of honour, more as a matter of fact. And I know many of you are in the same boat.

It’s the nature of what I do that I aim to look presentable most days. Good hair also makes me feel good and if I can achieve good hair with less effort on my part then all my lazy-girl beauty prayers have been answered.

The bhave Smoothe treatment reduced blow drying time because you don’t have to work so hard at getting a smooth finish with brushes but the big time saver for me is at the styling iron stage. It takes a lot less time to achieve a styled look when hair is already smooth, shiny and frizz-free.

Even when I had my first professional blow dry after the treatment, my stylist commented how much easier it was to wrangle my thick mop.

So, even though I was a guest of bhave three months ago and they wanted to work with me on this post, I fully intend to book in for another Smoothe treatment soon and continue getting these treatments as part of my hair management/wrangling plan.

Anything that makes my beauty life easier and improves my hair health at the same time gets a big tick from me.

    Returning life to my golden hues,

    Would be a hair rescue,

    And to rehydrate,

    To give me glistening highlights,

    Would be a transformation consideration!

  • Tess Tuipulotu

    I have been deciding whether to share as I am pretty embarrassed but in a few weeks time I will be having a state of the art spinal surgery which will leave me for 5 weeks not being allowed to shower/wash or wet my hair unless I want to get electrocuted. I have been in and out of hospital since last year so my hair is already struggling. I am only 27 and my hair down to my waist so I can only imagine what a month without any love is going to do it, this would certainly put a smile on my face and heart during this challenging time, the great part is I will hopefully soon be able to not be in crippling pain 24 hrs a day. (Happy to share a photo of the journey)

  • Trish Fullwood

    All my life I had this mass of frizzy curls that does whatever it wants to do, for once I’d like to use a product that helped me make my hair do what I wanted it to.

  • Hannah

    I’ve spent years loving my curly hair. Long or short, coloured it natural, I’ve always been known by my tangle of curls. I loved that they were wash and wear & a good cut was my friend, a bad my new look but only enemy. Now I look in the mirror & see long straight hair and I’ve a new friend called ghd. Breastfeeding took my curls away and a bad hair colour has made me too blonde. My new hair seems to be curly so I sport a reverse perm! I’d love to return to the wash & wear days if only I could hair would bhave

    I have wild and adventurous hair that needs taming.
    I am approaching 40 and have never colored my hair as it has so many colors built in. I am lucky in this regard but keeping it healthy and manageable is tricky as I like to keep it long. These products are very exciting. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  • Kirra Jayne

    I am SO excited to hear there is a new kid on the keratin treatment block! I tried a keratin treatment a few years ago, after they removed the formaldehyde, but basically kept the same formulation other than that. Unfortunately it did not work on my hair as my frizz halo was too stubborn to tame! I have attached a picture of what my hair looked like after having what was essentially just a treatment – as you can see, my frizz was nowhere near banished…

    My (now ex) boyfriend used to call me the frizz haired monster after I let my hair naturally dry – while not super flattering, it is definitely accurate! My GHD and I are very close, and although I believe it may be hard for my straightener to hear, I would very much love to find another way to banish the frizzies… Fresh Ends sounds like an amazing product, and my super dry ends would absolutely drink up the moisture! I am now busily looking up salons where I can have the Bhave treatment done, as it sounds very affordable and who wouldn’t want banana paddle pop scented hair? And with a recommendation from Styling You and the incomparable Zoe Foster, I know I’m going to love it.

  • Kim m

    My hair was awesome in the 80’s! I have very naturally curly hair and I have a LOT of it too. I wear my hair up in a ponytail every single day because I don’t know what to do with it. I haven’t looked after it, but i just turned 40, (and your supposed to be fabulous in your 40’s aren’t you?) i would like to treat my hair and get it sorted out so i can wear it down.

    I’d love to win this for my 17 year old daughter. She’s tried a lot of products both expencise and cheap to try and tame her hair. But for really no change. As soon as we get a little humidity or rain “poof” back to frizzy lizzy. I can smell her burning/straighting her hair each night then quickly in the morning before school but now with all her hours of study for the HSC her hair can only be thrown into a high bun and forgotton about. If this product can last for that long it may be her saving grace for the next 5 to 6 months until she is HSC free and back to a normal day. Thank you for this chance!!!

  • Lisa Jene

    Firefighters turn their hoses on a blazing house. The family cat gets wet, and angrily shoots up a tree. After the blaze is out, the firefighters turn to rescuing the cat, now dry but fuzzy, with hair sticking up in unappeased rage. I wish my hair looked as good as the cat’s. I wish I could get rescued by a gorgeous firefighter, but I know a bhave rescue would help my hair more :)

    I have long hair that gets curlier as it gets longer. In winter this means it also gets ‘the frizzy halo’. If you show me a product that works, I’ll show you a person eternally in your debt.

  • Marilla Dann

    Actually for my sister as she spends so much time looking after her family. She deserves a beauty treatment for her wild curly thick hair, to tame it into soft pretty waves and feel pampered, taking some well deserved time for herself.

  • Debbie Moody

    I have very course red hair which I love but can be very hard to get that smooth silky soft healthy look that I love.

    I’m a 42yr old grandma and my girls and granddaughters are constantly reminding me how beautiful my hair was only a few yrs ago, long, wavy luscious locks that bounced whenever I moved my head, but now due to ‘age’ I’ve lost that look n feel to my hair and would do anything for it back: Email- msnajjar1@hotmail.com

    My hair is in excellent condition, thanks to my new pixie cut. But my mum could really use some help! She’s dismayed that it’s dry and uncontrollable, but doesn’t seem to put time (and money) aside to treat herself. She won’t take help from me, but maybe a little help from Nikki will get her on track?

    As a Mum who only visits the hairdresser once a year Bhave’s range of chemical free Hair smoothing range sounds heavenly to me. I had always believed by best feature was my long mane of auburn hair. Sadly my crowning glory is no longer my proud signature. My dry, greying, undernourished and uncontrollable mass is constantly tied in a messy ponytail as it’s so thick and boofy I simply have no clue on how to manage or style it. My kids even call me “baa baa” because its so fluffy and wooly! I avoid washing it as it makes no difference whether I blow dry it or let it dry naturally either result it depressing. This rescue remedy trio would certainly boost my confidence and make me proud to have long hair instead of feeling like its a curse every morning.

  • Melissa

    Yes please! My hair is the last thing to get any attention and that involves a brush into a ponytail, and a wash a couple of times a week. I have tried various lotions and potions to ‘smooth’ the fuzzy flyaways with minimal effect and getting time to visit the hairdresser regularly just doesn’t happen.

  • Pumba

    I’m trying to grow out what can only be described as an afro, caused by a hairdresser not realising that when you cut wavy/curly hair it gets even more curlyy and crazy. Add the freezing cold snow wind and my hair is in serious need of some love.

  • Karina Lee

    It’s just dry dry dry at the moment. It’s more like hay, than hair right now.

  • Beauty Bee

    Because at the moment, I look like a banshee with my crazy hair! The winter chill, heaters, colourings and wind have NOT been kind to my hair :(

  • Kerri

    My hair is like a rebellious teenager that I have absolutely no control over what so ever. I have tried everything and have a bathroom full of failed products, so yes my hair (actually me!) needs rescuing.

  • Rachel K

    A few months ago I visited a new hair salon. I’ve been gradually getting more and more greys but I was at one with them and them with me! However, my new stylist waved his hands in the air at the sight of them announcing to the world, “Oh Darling, you’re too young for those signs of wisdom!” and convinced me to colour my hair.

    I HATE IT! It’s the wrong colour (although it has lightened – thank God),
    it feels dry and when I wake up in the morning every strand is separated from the other and they’re all sticking up and out in all directions, like I’ve been electrocuted during my sleep! I’m even too scared to use the hair dryer in case I make it even more brittle. I’m thinking of finding a new use for my hair dryer to cheer myself up by sitting in my parked car and pointing the hairdryer at passing cars to see if they slow down!! Ha, ha!

  • Steph Little

    Yes my hair definitely needs rescuing! It is sooo hard to tame, it looks like a lion’s mane at the best of times. It’s thick and wavy and needs some LOVE.

  • Paula

    Bhave seems like a new essential for this knotty frizzball….my last visit to the hairdressers saw them (4 stylists in the end) brush out my hair for 1 1/4 hours after doing a treatment that was meant to detangle and smooth my hair! Was still there in the chair when the Fri night cocktails started flowing in their instore after work bar!

  • Amelia Hickman

    Hi my name is Amelia and I’m a hair colour addict. In the last 12 months my hair has gone from brown, blonder, silver/grey, purple to platinum and back to ombré blonde/brown. If that wasn’t enough my hair is naturally wavy/curly and is prone to frizz and craves moisture. Despite all my efforts (I’m a no sulphates, silicones or nasties kind of girl) and with winter looming my hair is in need of a little extra help.

  • Angie b

    SOLD! Those pictures show me exactly why I need the Bhave treatment, so now to search for a hairdresser or tell mine to start stocking it. Why I need this pack? Because my hair is my number 1 time sucker each and everyday. Thick coarse hair in humidity is no fun.

  • Nicole Reid

    Yes, my hair is bright pink! But there’s a reason behind it. My cousin has just been diagnosed with cancer and I did it to support her. You’re most probably thinking so what, people get diagnosed with cancer every day. But you see my cousin isn’t just an ordinary person, she’s a quadriplegic. Let me tell you her story. At 19 my cousin Simone met and married the man of her dreams Gary. Thinks couldn’t have been better. A few days after getting married they headed off on their honey moo to our families small country town Lake Cargellico, when tragedy struck. There was an horrific car accident where their car rolled seven times leaving Gary badly injured and Simone a quadriplegic. Time went by and Gary recovered and then devoted his life to looking after his beautiful bride, Simone. A few years later, against all the odds and doctors advice, Simone became pregnant. She went on to have a beautiful daughter called Beth. At the time she was only the second quadriplegic to have a baby in Australia. Despite her disabilities, she was an amazing mother and wife. She learnt how to drive. She then put herself through university and obtained a degree in physcology to help others in the same situation as herself. She went on to build up several businesses and portfolios, so that when she did pass, quadriplegics usually only live into to their thirties, there would be financial security her husband and daughter. Well Simone lived beyond her thirties, in fact she turned 50 last year. Another amazing feat for an amazing woman. Throughout the years, there have been dozens and dozens of surgeries relating to complications with being wheelchair bound. She over came them all and never once dud we hear her complain. Last November she had to go in have major surgery, which the doctors did not believe she would survive, but without the surgery, she would surely die. So she took it on. And guess what. She came through it like a trooper. Recently at a checkup with her doctor, they discovered a mass in her abdomen, it was a tumour, a cancerous tumour. It was in-operatable, and they only gave her six months at the best. Well, once again she went after it lied a bull in a china shop and started aggressive chemo last week. You see, even though my hair is 18inches shorter, bleached and over processed and feels like straw, I don’t want the products for me. I want them for my cousin. Chemo causes hair to fall out but it does grow back, so when it does, I want her to have the best products, to make her healthy and look amazing. I think she really deserves it. Thanks :-) Nicole

  • katypotaty

    After a very poor choice of super-tjooshed, super-tight-bun party hairstyle for one of my Hens’ Nights (yes, there were multiple!), I have been left with a ring of broken hair around my head at the ‘high ponytail, high tide’ mark! That’s what my parents both call the 8-10cm long wisps all the way around my head that just will NOT stop splitting and fluffing, no matter the treatment, oil, masque or fancy placebo that I apply!

  • Anecdotal Anna

    My hair needs to be rescued from my own inattention. With thin, lacklustre hair I have lost all motivation to do anything with it.

  • Emmy Lou

    I have the THICK frizzy hair which takes soooooo long to blow dry and straighten that I nearly have a permanent messy bun! If it saves me from another hairdresser saying my hair looks great straightened but it took so long while rubbing THEIR shoulders it would be amazing!

  • Rebecca Haycock

    I wrote the book on boofy hair- in fact, I think yours and my hair are soul sisters conspiring to make our already busy lives hard!
    Even with the help of my GHD, it’s still extremely difficult to wrangle my hair, and my two young kids, every morning and be out the door by 7 am to drop off kids at OSHC and childcare.
    I’ve tried smoothing serums, chemical straightening, argon oil, etc, and I’m pretty sure I’m one hair wash away from a repetitive strain injury in my shoulder from trying to straighten my frizzy locks into submission!

  • Karla Jones

    I too have hair with attitude (lots of thin, frizzy hair)! Which pretty much lives permanently in a pony tail because I don’t have the time each morning to sort it out! I would love to try something like this which may even encourage me to wear my hair down for a change!!

  • http://www.hippiemumma.com/ Jackie @ Hippie Mumma

    Since having a baby I devoted less time to my hair and more time ot trying to function semi-normally! I recently did the big chop and got a long bob and started colouring it again. I have curly hair, fine and lots of it like yourself, and would love this to help keep it healthy and tame it a bit better.

  • murphy scanlon

    I moved towns last year and tried out a new hairdresser. I ended up trying Ombre in my beautiful long hair – and the hairdresser essentially murdered my hair. I’ve had to cut my mid-back length hair to above my shoulders to give it the chance to heal. My hair needs a rescue! I’m starting over and this would be an amazing way to bring health and life back to my hair!

  • joburkey

    If I let my hair do what it wanted, I’d look like the crazy bag lady with waves and frizz going out in all directions. It needs to be tamed so I can reenter the world a normal human being (and not have my toddler tell me I have crazy funny mamma hair!!!)

  • http://www.smaggle.com Smaggle

    Do you have any idea what it would do to curly hair? I’d love a hydrating system for curls that leaves my curls curly. x

    • http://www.stylingyou.com.au/ Nikki | Styling You

      It doesn’t remove the curl because it doesn’t break the hair bonds – it will soften the curl. You will walk out of there with straight hair for 48 hours but after washing should return to curl. I’m told that some may experience straightening of their curls at least in the short term while the treatment settles.

  • Lisa Mckenzie

    Looks like a great product Nikki ,it would be nice for my curls to be more defined when I leave it to dry naturally so this looks like a godsend for my fine flyaway hair!

  • Karyn Reimann

    Thin, frizzy hair – the bane of my life. Too fragile for straightening treatments, I iron it within an inch of its life! Bhave looks incredible Nikki; I’d love to give it a try x

  • V W

    I’m able to just pull out clumps at a time- that can’t be good! That and the flyaways, well i’m just a mess!

    • http://www.stylingyou.com.au/ Nikki | Styling You

      Oh VW the hair clump thing happens a couple of times of year for me – in relation to my thyroid disorder.

    looks like a good product to me nikki, I was a hairdresser in a previous life and those photos clearly show the difference! we used to give treatments probably with nasties … things have certainly changed for the better with awareness and people demanding natural alternatives! … I will tell some friends who have hair in need of repair. cheers m:)X

      I did all the ones with the nasties Merilyn in attempt at taming my mane!

    oh yes. please. My hair is a disaster of late. I call it my menopausal hair as it has always been obedient previously. I’ve endured several bad haircuts of late just trying to tame it. Several colours have turned it into a dry spongey mess. This could well be the answer for me Nikki! I’d just like my hair to behave.

    This treatment sounds fantastic. Coming up to 6 months pregnant I haven’t even been in for a trim, I’m in desperate need of some fabulous products until I can get some colour and treatment happening in a salon!

    Colouring and styling have taken their toll!
    Flyaways run rampant ,split ends outta control!
    From frizz and unruliness,it needs to be saved
    A hair hero needed-please help it BHAVE!

    As a busy mum with no time to spend on my hair I SO need this! Smoother sleeker hair will make me feel a million dollars as I head out the door x

    Wow wow wow I have not heard of this before, you can see the difference with the before/after photo. My hair would benefit from using BHAVE to make it smoother and manageable as I have long hair and there is nothing worse then having long dry hair.

      At the moment all i can do with my hair is throw it in a pony tail. I have just had my 3rd baby six months ago so 3 under 4 and just dont have the time to tame my hair i have not been to the hairdressers in over a year as i dont have the 2 hours or the $ to spare. I would love to give back a bit of love and care to my hair.
