Inova Professional REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

I recently was lucky enough to get my hands on some fabulous Inova Professional Products, and I am dying to share my experience with you!

For those of you who don't know about Inova Professional, this wonderful brand focuses on using the innovative brazilian silk keratin treatment to help build and strengthen hair. Keratin, collagen proteins, mineral oil, cacao extract, and other essential ingredients are combined to help smooth hair, fix the damage, and protect it from everyday dangers effecting hair. The end result is an AMAZING hair line that can be used alone or in conjunction with the Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatment.

Inova Professional was founded by two salon owners and senior hair stylists with over 40 years of combined experience. They worked together to create a line to end frizziness, damaged, unmanageable, and over colored and processed hair. They wanted a treatment that would not only fix these common problems, but also help smooth, shine, and protect the hair. Together this goal was reached and the Pure Keratin Smoothing treatment was developed along with the Inova Professional line to be used in conjunction with this treatment or on their own, to deliver the best, smoothest, shiniest, healthy, most manageable hair.

In the last month or so, I got to try and test out the introduction kit and see for myself just how well these products live up to the claims. In the introduction kit, you get:

- Smooth Protection Sulfate Free Shampoo
- Smooth Hydration Conditioner
- Miracle Mask Deep Conditioning Treatment
- Sheer Magic Smoothing Balm
- Pure Shine Finishing Gloss

When my products arrived super fast, I couldn't wait to dig in them. The bottles all looked so luxurious!

I first started with the Smooth Protection Shampoo.

My first thoughts were how smooth it felt on my hair. I have super frizzy, dry, over processed hair, that is also super long and thick so it tangles like CRAZY! As usual my hair was super tangly and what really surprised me most about this shampoo, was that it seemed to be getting the tangles out! How often do you see Shampoo that does that?! It's usually what the conditioner does, right?! I only use shampoo on the roots and the top part of my hair and I've heard its not good for the ends, but what was trickling down seemed to also be untangling the rat nest in my hair! I loved how amazing this shampoo felt on my hair. My hair felt instantly smoother and to be perfectly honest, with the first use of this shampoo I was hooked and thought to myself, this is unlike any other shampoo I've ever used. I absolutely loved the way it made my hair feel. I could instantly tell a difference in how smooth my hair felt.

Next was the conditioner. I used this once a week with the shampoo and switched and used the deep conditioning mask with my second wash during the week. I really liked how smooth and creamy this conditioner was and how it also made my hair feel that way. It did a great job of detangling my hair and felt incredibly moisturizing on my hair. I really enjoyed how smooth and soft this made my hair feel.

The Miracle Mask is probably my favorite in this kit! It smells DIVINE! I felt like I was in the salon having my hair treated as soon as it came out of the package. It felt so luxurious on my hair and was instantly smoothing and moisturizing. I absolutely loved the way this mask glided onto my hair and how silky and smooth my strands felt immediately upon use. I then put my hair in the cap and left on for 20-30 minutes. The directions say to apply heat so a couple of times I used a hair dryer, and the other times I let the steam from the shower heat it up while I shaved my legs.

When I rinsed the mask out of my hair, my hair felt noticeably softer and smoother. I loved how my fingers glided through my hair, something that is pretty rare for me, especially when my hair is wet. My thick, dry hair felt so smooth, soft, and moisturized. I loved how my hair felt in my hands. I was instantly hooked on this mask!

After washing, I then followed up with the sheer magic, which is essentially a leave in treatment to  help aid in styling. It is applied to damp hair and it felt luxurious and smooth when I applied it to mine. I liked how easy my fingers worked through my hair with this product. It is rich and creamy and feels insanely soft on the hair. The Smoothing Balm uses nutrients to block out humidity while locking in essential nutrients, leaving the hair soft, manageable, and super smooth. I live in Wyoming so I don't have like ANY humidity to deal with but I took this lovely product on vacation with me last week to the Florida Keys, where anyone who's ever visited can tell you it's the humidity capitol of the states! I was extremely impressed with how well this product worked. My hair felt amazing on my trip as well! My hair was super soft, smooth, and my style stayed! I couldn't keep my hands out of my hair it felt so amazing! My hair did not feel weighed down and all but instead felt light, looked shiny, and was super, super soft!

Last, but certainly not least is the Pure Shine, used to add that crazy amount of shine while sealing the style! I noticed a big difference in my dry hair when using this. Because my hair is dry, damaged, and frizzy, it rarely looks shiny and healthy, but I was incredibly surprised with the amount of shine this product gave my hair. My hair looked and felt so soft and shiny. I used this both here in dry Wyoming, and in super Humid Florida, and was super impressed with how well my style stayed in both places, and looked so soft and shiny as well! I really, really, love this product and am wondering how I ever lived without this or the rest of the products from this amazing line!

Overall, this fantastic smoothing hair line gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me! I loved each and every product and noticed a huge different in my hair while using this luxurious hair care line! My hair looks and feels amazing and is softer and shinier than its ever been! I tried all kinds of different styles with these products and it lived up to the claim to hold my style while locking out humidity and making it look and feel its very best! I've tried a lot of different hair care products over the last few years and the Inova Professional line is at the very top of my list for my favorites! This is an amazing line that solved my frizzy, unmanageable hair the first time I used it! My hair has never looked and felt more moisturized, and I swear my hair is happier too! It looks and feels so amazing and I was seriously super impressed when I took the products to Florida to test them there as well. The last few times I went to Florida, I felt like thanks to the humidity, my hair was a lost cause, and I was so disappointed with how flat and heavy it would feel right away after walking out into the humidity! But not this time! These super smoothing products showed the humidity who was boss! My hair style stayed all day and my hair felt super light!

If you suffer from these common, annoying hair problems, you seriously need to do yourself a favor and check out this AMAZING hair care line! I promise, you will NOT be disappointed!! My hair has never felt better, and I can't believe how soft and smooth it feels!

  1. Thank you for the amazing review. Love to try Inova products after reading it. Could you please let me know how you used the deep conditioning mask? Did you massage it with shampoo or apply and leave it for few minutes. I have crazy hair like yours and need some help! Thanks!

    1. Hi Sahara, Thank so much for your comment! I used the shampoo, rinsed, then applied the deep conditioner to the middle of my hair and down to the ends. I combed through really well with my fingers to make sure it was spread evenly, then put it up in a bun under a shower cap and let it sit for about 20 minutes, while applying some heat to it either through the steam of the shower, or my blow dryer. Then I just rinsed it out :)

    2. Thank you so much for your reply. That helps a lot and appreciate it. My hair so need a good deep conditioning mask. Keeping my fingers crossed on winning the magical Inova products for my hair.

      Thanks again for giving the opportunity.
