bhave Smoothe XT

So if you’re on a quest for picture-perfect, sleek locks with no flyaway curls or frizzy strands in sight, as well as a damage-free treatment with long-term conditioning, protection and a lustrous shine, this is exactly what you need. Created with bhave’s strongest keratin formula developed so far, the bhave™ Smoothe XT treatment is designed to completely smooth the hair with no compromise so you can wave goodbye to any sign of frizz or misbehaving hair!
 

bhave is enriched with keratin, argan oil, collagen and glycolic acids, curls will be softened, waves will be smoothed and hair will be easier to manage for up to four months with no frizz, no fuss and especially good – no formaldehyde. bhave Smoothe XT is completely finished in the salon, so you can colour or highlight on the same day if you wish. There is zero downtime, so you can immediately tie or clip your hair back if the mood takes you!

At Glow we usually recommend that any lightening services (eg a full or half head of highlights) be applied before your keratin smoothing service and tinting, toning or semi-permanent colouring is recommended AFTER your keratin smoothing service. 

 

bhave treatments are not straightening treatments and, unlike other straightening services, does not restructure the hair. As a result, hair looks more natural with enhanced body, movement and manageability.

At-home maintenance is easy – This treatment does have a smoothing effect when you ‘wash and go’, for the best results you should apply heat after each wash, either blow-dry and style or allow your hair to air dry to 85% dry and finish off with a 5-minute blow-dry and a couple of passes with your straighter – to get that perfect salon finish!

Oh bhave! Why be frizzy when you can be fabulous?! 


The new bhave™ Smoothe XT has got you covered! Do you spend half your morning in front of the mirror with a straightening iron, and by the time you get to the minibus/MTR or your car park all that time and effort is ruined! It’s time to tame that frizz & keep your hair smooth & manageable with the new NEW and IMPROVED formaldehyde-free bhave™ Smoothe XT keratin hair treatment – it is arguably the best smoothing treatment to combat frizzy hair in the Hong Kong heat!

bhave Smoothe Plus

 

bhave Smoothe Plus is suitable for all hair types, however, it is most effective on chemically damaged, dry and porous hair as the improvement in the condition is significant in these cases.

The bhave Smoothe Plus salon treatment will take 2.5 to 3 hours. For the first 48 hours after your treatment, you must ensure that you do not wet/wash or tie back your hair, as the keratin needs time to settle into the hair. After 48 hours the hair should be washed, blow-dried and ideally ironed again for best results, this can be done in the salon or in your own home.

The bhave Smoothe Plus treatment is enriched with keratin, argan oil, collagen and silk amino acids, if you have curls they will be softened or loosened and if you have wavy hair it will be smoothed.  bhave Smoothe plus is a heat-activated therapy and does not permanently change the internal structure of the hair. It washes out slowly over time and conquers the frizz by smoothing out the hair cuticle making hair more manageable and quicker to dry.

While there are no known adverse side effects, at Glow, we recommend that pregnant women and nursing mums consult their physician if they are at all concerned, prior to this and any type of hair treatment.

At Glow we usually recommend that any lightening services (eg a full or half head of highlights) be applied BEFORE your keratin smoothing service and tinting, toning or semi-permanent colouring is recommended AFTER your keratin smoothing service. bhave treatments are NOT straightening treatments and, unlike other straightening services, does not restructure the hair. As a result, hair looks more natural with enhanced body, movement and manageability.
 

Oh bhave! Why be frizzy when you can be fabulous?! 

 

bhave Smoothe Plus treatment is paraben and formaldehyde-free, using raw, rather than heat treated keratin. The keratin is a bioactive keratin protein, gently extracted from New Zealand sheep’s wool, keeping the critical amino acids and proteins as intact as possible. The keratin penetrates the hair shaft and is able to bind to severely damaged hair, supporting the internal structure and restoring strength, elasticity and shine to damaged hair. 

The aftercare is simple, bhave Smoothe Plue will have a smoothing effect when you ‘wash and go’, however for the best results you should apply heat after each wash. This can be as simple as a quick blow dry and smooth with flat irons at home. The treatment will last up to 4 months, at Glow we highly recommended that the bhave rescue home care shampoo and conditioner are used to extend the longevity of this treatment.
