If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’d know how much I love the products from bhave, as they simply make such an incredible difference to the health of my hair. If you’ve missed my reviews, you can easily find them all here. So needless to say that I was excited when I was asked to put the *bhave Salon Rescue Treatment to the test – and done by none other than Neil Cleminson, bhave Creative & Technical Director.
With Neil Cleminson..
So a few weeks ago I met up with Neil at the Reveur Cheveux Salon in McKinnon where he works a few times a week, as he has recently sold his own salon to free up some time to concentrate on the bhave product range..

So what is a bhave Rescue Treatment...

Hairdryers, flat irons, colour processing, chemical straightening and exposure to
the elements can leave our hair dry, fried and unable to hold a style, as well as it can cause the hair’s natural keratin structure to become damaged and over time, lustrous hair can become brittle and lack lustre.
The bhave in-salon rescue treatment contains a revolutionary keratin technology using a new technology with a naturally derived and extracted keratin protein that is almost identical to the naturally occurring keratin present in hair and skin.  These intact keratin proteins are consequently able to bind to severely damaged hair, rebuilding the internal structure and restoring strength, elasticity, damage and shine from the inside out, rather than superficially coating the hair surface for a temporary fix.

The bhave rescue treatment..
The Raw Natural Keratin in bhave™ rescue is derived from pure NZ sheep’s wool, a fibre very similar to human hair. This patented process employs a unique extraction method that does not require the use of heat or acids, therefore, keeping the proteins intact and useable.

If hair is damaged, then Raw Natural Keratin penetrates into the fibre and binds to the internal structure, rebuilding the damaged proteins to restore strength and condition to the fibre. If hair is in good condition, then a sacrificial shield will be deposited on the surface, protecting the hair from potential damage.

So how is the treatment done…

First the hair is shampooed – using bhave rescue shampoo of course, (if you haven’t seen my reviews, you really should, as these products are seriously my Holy Grail hair products!), and then it is towel dried. The rescue treatment is hereafter applied to the hair with a brush throughout the hair.

The hair is then covered with cling film and you’re placed under a heat lamp for approx. 20 minutes to let the treatment penetrate into the hair.

Hereafter the hair is rinsed and conditioned – in my case, Neil used the amazing bhave Deep Intense Conditioning Masque, and when that was rinsed out, my hair was blow dried and styled...

After the treatment....
How shiny and healthy does this look?????

As you can see, my hair is looking noticeably shinier and healthier, and feels so soft and smooth from roots to ends. Even the dry ends were looking and feeling so incredibly silky soft and healthy, almost as if I’d just had a good hair cut (Neil did try to convince me to get my long hair cut a bit, but that is another story!) – and I just couldn’t stop touching and running my hands through the hair for the rest of the day. Unfortunately, because I have an 11 month old boy that likes to pull my hair, I had to put my hair up later that day, but as my hair was so smooth, it just kept slipping out again, a proof of how soft and smooth my hair really was.

And even after I next washed the hair, and for several washes after that, it felt still so much healthier and more thoroughly moisturised and it was so much easier to comb than usual, with not knots or tangles, so I am impressed to say that the results are lasting for a while too.
While the treatment didn't take very long, I did bring along my husband and little boy who were also acting as my photographers for the day..

Even a short wait can be a long time for a little boy, but Mummy's little monster was very well 'bhaved..'

Always such a happy and good boy...
Neil did say prior to the treatment that my hair was in a quite good condition, and I would consequently not see as huge results than if my hair was severely damaged and dry, yet I was still very impressed with the results – and especially considering the bhave Rescue treatment is quite affordable at between RRP$35 –$45.00 per treatment, depending on the length of your hair – I’d definitely consider having a bhave rescue treatment again in the future, and if your hair is in need of some serious TLC, then I highly recommend that you let bhave come to the rescue too, you won’t be disappointed.

Or, if you have thick, wavy, frizzy, unmanageable hair, then you may want to look into the bhave Keratin In-Salon Smoothe treatment, which sedates frizz and nourish, rejuvenate, restore the hair, while enhancing shine and dramatically reducing maintenance and styling for up to four months! It costs from $199, but how good does frizz free and easy styling for up to four months sound, pretty awesome, if you ask me!!!

The bhave Rescue and Smoothe treatments are available in-salon from selected salons, and as are of course also all the bhave hair products. For salon and stockist enquiries, you can call phone 1300 40 20 64, or visit the bhave website.
