All brides-to-be want to have perfectly beautiful hair on their big day - and who can blame us? There's thousands of treatments and hair products that promise to help with just that, but which to trust? And when to try?
Our advice: start now. And start at Zoo in Islington.
The hair salon in Northern London has a philosophy of perfectly natural hair, and so only stock Aveda products. Greeted by hair stylist David Evans, he quickly made us feel welcome and fully explained the treatment and it's many benefits.
The Aveda Smooth Infusion Retexturizing Treatment is the equivalent of an organic Brazilian blow-dry: all the benefits of a Brazilian, without the damaging chemicals - perfect!
The permanent treatment retexturizes hair, making even the frizziest of hair and most unruly of curls more manageable. It won't make your hair perfectly straight, but it's the ideal treatment for wavy hair and helps with tame frizz brilliantly.
The post-treatment odour is particularly strong when it comes to washing your hair, but not entirely unpleasant and definitely better than other treatments we have tried.
It's also the perfect treatment to truly nourish your hair: there is no formaldehyde like in similar treatments and it will leave your hair feeling stronger, shinier and generally prettier.
Plus, with the effects lasting at least three months, that's three months of care-free hair. Forget about torturing your hair into submission for a few weeks - bliss!
