I have ridiculous hair. It’s neither straight nor curly. It falls somewhere in the annoying, frizzy middle. My entire life I’ve fought of the frizzy’s and have chosen to go the way of straightening my hair for the most part. It’s easier to go straight then to try and get perfect curls. I know some of you understand my pain.
When Aveda reached out to see if I’d be interested in trying their Smooth Infusion Line, I decided HECK YEAH! I’ve always been a fan of Aveda – and a line designed to help straighten sounds right up my alley!
I started out by washing and conditioning my hair with Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner. I then applied the Style-Prep Smoother to my damp hair.
Followed that by adding Naturally Straight to my hair, and then began styling as normal!
The end result looked amazing! I am so frustrated because I took before/after pictures …. and the iOS8 update ate them up off my phone! You’re going to just have to imagine me dreamy and sexy and straightened. It was beautiful!
How to Use the Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Products:
Step 1: Wash hair with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Shampoo and follow with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Conditioner. Towel dry hair and comb through.
Step 2: Apply Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother to damp hair, by working it through from the mid-shaft through the ends of hair.
Step 3: Apply Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight. Depending on hair length and thickness, start by using approximately a small coin sized drop of Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight styling creme on towel-dried, still-damp hair, applying it one section at a time.
Step 4: Blow-dry hair straight using the brush of your choice. Flat iron if desired.
Go from naturally curly to naturally straight. Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight is a lightweight styling creme that progressively loosens curls every time you style.
As you straighten your hair, Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight’s naturally derived plant fibers invisibly attach to hair to loosen curl and help lock in straightness. The formula’s humidity barrier of organic cassava extract and maize defends against frizz. The more you use it, the easier it is to create straight, smooth styles, so you can spend less time with a blow dryer and flat iron every day. It is safe for relaxed and color treated hair. After five consecutive applications of Naturally Straight, hair will stay straight for up to three washes.
