Aveda Smooth Infusion

CYMERA_20130829_124824

 

The last month the humidity in Oregon has been intense. The high humidity besides making me feel icky wreaks complete havoc on my hair. Anyone with natural curl or wave knows how frustrating it is to have spent the time to style your hair then walk outside and feel the frizz start to go crazy.

I was sent the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother and Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner to review and share my thoughts. I have been using the products for a few weeks now and wanted to share my thoughts.

The shampoo and conditioner both smell great and I only need a bit to really work through my hair. The conditioner leaves my hair smooth and tangle free and surprisingly easy to brush through (bonus)! I love that this line is not only cleaning and conditioning but also protecting my hair from the damage heat styling can cause.

My favorite piece of this line has to be the Style-Prep Smoother. I work a dime size amount through my hair and not only does it help smooth my hair and fight frizz it really helps to cut drying time and unnecessary heat damage. I love how soft and smooth my hair is when I use it and the best part, my hair stays smooth and straight all day.

The picture below shows my natural curl left untouched. On the right my hair after using the Aveda Smooth Infusion products and blow drying. Even without a flat iron my hair is much straighter, and once I flat iron its pin straight.
