Smooth Infusion

12 Jul

I am always testing new hair products and my recent favorite for the summer is from Aveda.  It is their Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother ($24 www.aveda.com).  In the summer I have to battle the humidity especially when I straighten my hair.  This product helps defend against humidity for up to 12 hours!  I put this on wet hair after I put on all my other styling products and use a wide tooth comb to get this distributed evenly throughout my hair.  Then I blow dry and use my flat-iron as needed.  Your hair is smooth and sleek for the whole day!  I wash my hair every other day and this product does not make your hair feel oily or heavy.  You can definitely go without washing your hair and feel comfortable.  I did have to get used to the smell.  Most Aveda products come from plants and they smell very “earthy”, they don’t smell bad, but I am one of those girls that loves floral “girly” smells so this took some getting used too.  The good thing is the smell goes away so you don’t smell it on your hair all day.  Other people I know that use it love the smell because it is that natural citrus “woodsy” smell…”to each their own” as I say.  In any case, if you fight humidity or just want to get your dry hair looking smooth, give this a try, you won’t be disappointed!
