I recently reviewed a Bosley hair product, KMS Shampoo and Conditioner, and Tamer Foam which were distributed by Beauty Care Choices. I received another wonderful item from this company! If you need a recap about them, here it is:
Beauty Care Choices is a company that was started in 2004, and is based out of Shasta, California. This company is an online distributor and authorized retailer of professional salon products, which offers consultations with licensed cosmetologists via phone and email. Beauty Care Choices purchases their products directly from the manufacturer, and most of these professional brands are not found in drugstores.
Beauty Care Choices offers a variety of products, including: hair care (shampoo, conditioner, styling products, color, accessories, dry shampoo, etc), skin care (body, hands, feet, face, eyes), cosmetics (face, eyes, lips, body, makeup removing, tools and brushes), nails (polish, remover, treatments, tools, etc), unique gifts, and travel-sized items. They have fast delivery and hassle-free returns, as well as free shipping on orders over $49.
I was lucky enough to receive a 10.1 oz Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment, for the purpose of conducting this review. Since Beauty Care Choices has sent me great items in the past, I am always thrilled to review products that they carry. I can especially use leave-in treatments for my hair, due to the fact that I straighten it most days with a 450 degree flat iron. Although I haven't colored it in a year, I plan to get a new style in the next month, which is going to involve a total color change and a lot of damage. I have some split ends and frizz here and there, especially depending on the weather and which products I have used in my hair, both in and after my shower. Leave-in conditioners can help prime my hair for future damage.
The Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment is a salon-grade product that features a 2-phase formula (can you see the two different blue colors as separated in the above pictures?). This formula is made to be a powerful hydrator and moisturizer. It is free of parabans, salt, gluten, phthalates, and sulfates. The Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment is 100% vegan and is not tested on animals. It is great for all hair types, and offers advanced color protection for color-treated hair. It is pH-balanced and helps to equalize the pores of your hair while also locking in your color. It boosts "12 Ways" that it can perfect your hair:
- Instantly detangles
- Provides deep hydration
- Equalizes hair porosity
- Protects during thermal styling
- Helps repair split ends
- Protects hair color
- Gives hair a shiny luster
- Eliminates static electricity effects
- Soothes irritated skin
- Effective pre-color treatment
- Lessens the effects of chlorine
- Hair cutting lotion for salon stylists
The Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment contains the following ingredients:
Water, Cyclomethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone, Calycophyllum Spruceanum Bark Extract, Theobroma Grandiflorum Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Beholletia Excelsa Seed Extract, Simmonsdia Chinensis Seed Extract, Quiestum Arvense Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Helianthus Annuus Extract, Arinica Montana Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Oats, Hydrolyzed Cotton Seed Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Panthenol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Fragrance, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Ext.

The Leave-in Treatment 2-phase formula is easy to use; all you have to do is shake the bottle to allow the two phases to come together and activate. You can mist the leave-in treatment on dry or wet hair...do not rinse, and style as needed.
You can purchase the Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment on the Beauty Care Choices website, here. The 2 oz. size is only $6.40 and the 10.1 oz size (as pictured) will cost you $13.99. Proceeds (5%) from this leave-in treatment are donated to the City of Hope in the fight against cancer.
I cannot say enough good things about this product! The Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment smells like the best products from a hair salon. I always wished that I had something at home that could come close to the scent of the styling products that hair stylists use in salons. Now I do! It is a fresh, light smell that people will definitely compliment you on. I mist it over my hair every morning before styling, not just for the benefits of the conditioning, but also for the smell. As you can see from the pictures, I have already used a lot of the bottle, and I plan on buying more as soon as I am out. I usually like conditioning products (as long as they don't leave my hair feeling heavy, leave residue, or have too strong of a smell), but I am happy to alternate between them. I honestly can say that I don't think I'll be able to find another leave-in treatment that is as good as this one. Besides using it in the morning, I also spray it over my damp hair each time I get out of the shower. It helps me detangle my hair and get the comb through more quickly, and I feel like it lessens my frizz and helps calm the damage from my flat iron when I go to straighten it after it has dried. I love the two-phase formula -- I have never had a product that you have had to shake to activate before, but whatever it contains, it really works. My hair feels more hydrated and looks more luxurious and shiny.
I am so glad that Beauty Care Choices sent me the Pravana Nevo Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment when they did. I now have time to properly prepare my hair for color treatment this month (lots of blonde and bleaching), and I can feel confident that it will look less damaged than it could. I will also use this treatment to lock in my new color, to help it from fading. I really suggest this product for any hair type, if you are looking for a great conditioner that can work on your hair throughout the day, without dampening your style. It is literally a light mist, without any residue or heaviness..there is no crunch (as with certain hair sprays) and no change in your style, besides the refreshing smell!
