Aveda Botanical Therapy Scalp & Hair Treatment



It’s been years since my hair has been in optimum condition no thanks to endless sessions of colouring and rebonding. It’s not just out of vanity although I admit the colouring is necessary to cover the greys but rebonding sessions are a must-have due to the frizzy nature of my hair, it just gets out of control and unmanageable without regular rebonding, the results of which never last as long as I would hope for.

Anyway, when Aveda called to offer a Botanical Therapy Scalp & Hair Treatment at Min International Hair Studio in Desa Sri Hartamas, it was just what my hair needed. Seriously, my hair was calling out for help as it was looking worse than straw and felt rough and dry despite my best efforts at using all kinds of oils and treatments a home.



I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the condition of my hair before my treatment shocked my extremely polite and diplomatic stylist at Min International Hair Studio, Miss Park JungOk. She asked me a few questions about how often I wash my hair (every other day), did I experience a lot of hair fall-out during washes (yes I do), do I go for colouring and rebinding (more often than is good for my hair). Then she recommended the Aveda products to be used on my hair and scalp for the treatment.

My session began with the scalp treatment using Aveda Professional Scalp Remedy Intense Detoxifier, this gently detoxifies the scalp removing any product build-up. Plant Micro technology including wintergreen and salicylic acid exfoliate and promote cellular regeneration. The scalp massage felt so good that I didn’t want it to stop. It felt soothing and as if my scalp was being thoroughly cleansed.


After the scalp massage, my hair was washed and conditioned with Invati Exfoliating Shampoo and Invati Thickening Conditioner.

Features of Invati Exfoliating Shampoo:-

  • Cleanses, exfoliates and renews the scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid.
  • Clinically proven to remove the build-up of sebum and product residue that can clog pores and affect healthy hair.
  • Nourishes dry, tight scalps with extracts from millet seed and milk thistle, equalizing the lipid balance.
  • Contains densiplex™-an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including turmeric and ginseng.

Features of Invati Thickening Conditioner:-

  • Tested and proven to thicken hair with a blend of guar and rapeseed-derived ingredients.
  • Arginine derived from sugar beets and soy protein is clinically proven to restore strength and improve hair elasticity, reducing breakage.
  • Organic kukui nut oil helps add natural shine.
  • Contains densiplex™-an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including turmeric and ginseng.

This was my 1st time using the Invati products and they have such wonderful scents! I wanted to bring home the entire range. They used Invati Scalp Revitalizer after the rinse. Features of Invati Scalp Revitalizer:-

  • Contains densiplex™-an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including turmeric and ginseng.
  • Helps energize and rehabilitate the scalp around the follicles when massaged in.
  • A blend of vitamin E ingredients is proven to help accelerate microcirculation with therapeutic massage.
  • Creates the optimum environment for healthy hair.


Then Aveda Professional Dry Remedy Penetrating Moisture was applied, this is ideal for dry and brittle hair. It is a hair strengthening & nourishing treatment formulated with buriti & pomegranate oils that dissolve deeply to deliver instant & long-lasting moisture.


My hair was wrapped up in a nice turban and steamed for 10 minutes during which time I receive a lovely hand massage with Aveda Hand Relief (for professional use only).


Ooooooh! The hand massage felt sooooooo gooooooood. Now this is truly a pampering experience.


After the treatment had been rinsed off, the wooden paddle brush was used and this felt extraordinarily good on my scalp.


My favouite Aveda products for frizzy hair, Smooth Infusion Style + Prep Smoother and Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight were used before the blow dry. I am now on my 2nd tube of Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight.


Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil was applied to keep hair moisturized. Features of Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil:-

  • 99.9% naturally derived,* with the hydrating power of buriti oil
  • instantly moisturizes hair by 41%**

Miss Park gave my hair a much needed trim as there were split ends. Miss Park is indeed a Master Stylist as she is a whiz with the scissors. I have never seen a stylist wield the scissors with such pizzazz as Miss Park. Let’s just say I was mesmerized by her mastery of the scissors as she snipped at my hair.

My hair hasn’t felt this soft and smooth in years and I am saying this almost a week after the treatment at Min International Hair Studio. It was incredibly soft after the treatment and I was afraid that it’d go back to being rough and dry after my 1st shampoo at home but no, I am impressed that my hair has been restored to the best condition it has been in years. I can’t even remember the last time my hair felt this good to touch! This certainly says a lot or should I say volumes for the efficacy of Aveda products. I have to say this is the best hair and scalp treatment I have ever, ever experienced.
