bhave Rescue Shampoo Conditioner

After my recent bhave Rescue experience it was important that I continue to strengthen my hair so that it can return to a healthier place. To compliment the Rescue in-salon treatment, bhave created the Rescue Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner for ongoing maintenance. The same key ingredients are included, raw natural keratin, which is said to keep rebuilding the structure of the hair through continual use.

For my trial I continued using it for 4 weeks on average 3 times per week. Did it keep strengthening my hair? Have I noticed any improvement beyond what the in-salon treatment provided? I tell you all in this review.  Continue Reading

bhave Rescue hair treatment

Some of my body parts that are showing the signs of ageing more than others. One that I’ve noticed going downhill particularly fast is my hair – it’s quality isn’t what it used to be. Each hair strand is getting thinner but at the same time frizzy, it’s not feeling as soft and it’s looking dull. It’s like my hair is having a mid-life crisis but before I went to New York Fashion Week I decided enough was enough, something had to be done. I started looking into keratin hair treatments, something I had explored many years ago before the technology was refined.

Neil Cleminson at Reveur Cheveux Salon is also the Creative & Technical Director for bhave. After moving to Melbourne in May I was yet to find a new hairdresser so I was very happy to find out Neil was located just minutes from my house. New hairdresser found and coincidently I had heard from some fellow beauty editors that bhave’s Rescue Therapy wasn’t like any other keratin treatment.

Before going in for the treatment I looked into why it was different – the answer was Replicine Functional Keratin, which is the only commercially available fully functional keratin protein that has been extracted using a patented technology from pure New Zealand wool. Now, as many of you know, I’m vegan and therefore I’m personally against using any animals to benefit humans but when it became clear that many of you were requesting information on keratin treatments I had to put my personal feelings aside because this blog isn’t about me being vegan, it’s about helping you all to find the best products out there. I couldn’t recommend any keratin treatments until I did one myself.

Was my ethical sacrifice worth it? Have I found the answer to your hair woes? Let’s find out! Continue Reading

Best beauty products july 2014
It’s been a while since I shared a ‘best new beauty’ round-up but after continual requests landed in my inbox I decided to bring it on back. Don’t ever say I don’t give you what you want.

To get back in the swing of things it’s been a pretty subdued month, with only 30 products hitting shelves this month landing on my desk. That means we are keeping things short and concise, but as always only the items that really bowled me over with first-impressions make this list. Continue Reading
