Have you heard of 100% plant-based hair care products that give a good balance
not only to your hair but also on my body, mind and emotion?
Introducing to you...the art and science of pure flower and plant essences brought by AVEDA since 1978 using botanical and pharmacology philosophies. Over the past few years, AVEDA was based in Bangsar until 2012 it was relocated to cater for a larger consumer market. Currently it has 2 outlets, at One Utama Shopping Centre PJ and Pavilion KL.
I recently visited the latter for a professional hair consultation and styling. AVEDA normally provides hair styling service upon customers' request and purchase of AVEDA hair styling products, but it is having a special promotion from 25 June to 9 July, where patrons can download Lilac Surprise coupon on Facebook and make an appointment for FREE hair styling with NO hidden terms. Since it is a rare opportunity, I decided to give it a try.
At AVEDA, I explored the huge varieties of natural products ranging from haircare to skincare. Entering into AVEDA, everything is about going green! AVEDA is the first beauty company with 100% post consumer recycled PET for skin care and hair styling products. Therefore for every purchase of AVEDA items, you're contributing to the Mother Nature by recycling the packaging.
For frizzy and the most untamed hair like mine, I see alot of remedies at AVEDA that can help my hair from the shampoo, hair mask to hair restructuring treatment. Just by looking at the labels, I'm already convinced to try most of them.
Walking into AVEDA Pavilion at Level 3, the staff greeted me warmly and led me for a tea ritual session. "Before we begin, let's have some AVEDA Peppermint Tea to calm and comfort the senses", she said.
AVEDA Comforting Tea
I didn't know it produces natural tea as well! In fact, this signature tea is one of the crowd's favourite for its soothing herbal infusion of licorice root and peppermint which taste sweet yet refreshing for my liking.
Moving on quickly, we had a hair consultation session to check the condition of my scalp using the electronic device. Thank god, my scalp is considered healthy although it may be a tad dry, oily or combination at times.
I've been receiving many comments from hairstylists that my hair is ultra-dry and damaged with split ends after numerous times of hair coloring and straightening. Surprisingly, AVEDA made me realised the condition of my hair is not that bad. It is still manageable and corrigible to become silky smooth again!
Finally, she was about to transform my hair to become magically smooth
during the hair styling session using the best-selling Smooth Infusion haircare range.
Smooth hair begins with botanical care.
Control frizz for 2 days by using 2 steps.
Step 1: Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother (100ml)
√ Exclusive plant infusion (Organic aloe, maize and guar bean) creates a smooth surface on hair
√ Organic tapioca defends against humidity for up to 12 hours
√ Hydrolized wheat protein protects against surface damage from heat styling
Before using the hair straightener, always remember to apply heat-resistance serum. At Aveda,I found something interesting--- the 'smoother' has a soft gel-like texture, pretty close to liquid and it feels so light on the hair. I simply adore its amazingly fresh spicy sweet-floral scent.
#2 Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener (125ml)
(In picture: The tallest one, second from left)
It is an exclusive blend of plant cellulose, which functions exactly well on dry hair during humid weather (like what we have all year long in Malaysia!) Being 100% paraben-free, the straightener serum should be applied after styling to give an all-day straightness and shine.
For curly and coarse hair, apply from roots to ends.
Whereas for straight and wavy hair like myself, apply midlength to ends.
The entire styling process took a short 20 minutes. And here's the end result:
I'm the proud owner of the silky smooth waist-length hair!
For best and long-lasting result, you should consider using the
Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner to achieve silky smooth hair like mine.
Same goes to curly hair, you need botanical care to maintain the locks and prevent tangling. The Be Curly Shampoo, Conditioner, Curl Controller and Enhancing Hair Spray are ready to assist.
I took my sweet time browsing through the inspiring ideas of hair styles at Aveda while continue sipping on my tea. However, if you have no idea what to look for at Aveda, the hair consultants will provide assistance by looking at your hair concern (Protect color? Repair damage? Healthy scalp?).
I think if you wish to get similar treatment for your skin problems, Aveda is more than willing to help.
One last thing I did before thanking the helpful staff was the stress-fix exfoliating hand massage! Aveda's stress-fix aromaology series has this small can of soaking salts where I soaked my hands in the warm water for 20 minutes to enjoy the aroma of lavender and release stress.
The overall experience with Aveda was pretty good, now I have a better alternative for my daily hair regime. At the end of the session, I left home with a lighter foot and broader smile :)
