Say so long to frizz with this in-sa­lon smooth­ing treat­ment.

WHAT IT IS: Think of it as “diet ker­atin” – a gen­tle con­di­tion­ing treat­ment packed with amino acid that re­duces frizz, mak­ing hair more man­age­able, but not poker straight. A bhave Smoothe Ker­atin Ther­apy ap­point­ment starts with a con­sul­ta­tion, fol­lowed by a sham­poo and rough blowdry. The bhave treat­ment is then ap­plied in small sec­tions to the hair in the same way colour is, us­ing a brush to get it close to the roots and then taken down through the lengths. The treat­ment then works its magic, deep con­di­tion­ing with ar­gan oil, col­la­gen and silk amino acids while you re­lax for 45 min­utes. There's no gross smell or toxic fumes. It's then washed out, hair is dried again and smoothed with a flat iron un­til the lengths are stick straight. Un­like other ker­atin treat­ments, you can go home and wash it straight away, though it's rec­om­mend to wait a day or two to max­imise re­sults.


Get­ting your hair coloured. It's to­tally pain­less – other than de­vot­ing a few hours in the sa­lon.

VER­DICT: Hair is cer­tainly smoother and less fluffy. It still takes a while to dry, but now feels “wash and go” as it's less frizzy and more pol­ished when air-dried. There's a bit of nat­u­ral move­ment, but a vo­lu­mis­ing spray adds some needed oomph. With re­sults last­ing two to five months, it's a great op­tion for bat­tling hu­mid­ity or for­go­ing hot tools in the sum­mer months. Start­ing from $375, PALOMA,
