How does a curly-haired girl get straight hair?: Aveda Smooth Infusion™

I’d be rich if I had a dollar for every time someone told me that they, “wished they had my curly hair.” I would always politely say thank you, and whisper, “no you don’t,” under my breath. Curly hair can be a blessing and a curse; humidity is not friendly to a curly-haired girl. My hair isn’t easily straightened and it generally doesn’t stay straight long. I was excited when SheSpeaks contacted me asking if I wanted to review the Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight product line.

Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight has a styling creme that progressively straightens your hair after continued use. Naturally derived plant fibers attach to your hair and slowly loosen curl. 
My hair can be traced to my Scot-Irish ancestry; my ancestors gave me a head full of ringlets, with an unusually fine hair texture. My hair can’t withstand large amounts of heat or repeated abuse, and coloring my hair makes it even more fragile. I love the look of my hair when it is straight or with the ends slightly curled, but it just can’t take the heat. Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight would allow me to wear my hair the way I liked more frequently without as much heat. 
Here is how you use Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Naturally Straight:
  • 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.

My curl is slowly starting to relax, and I noticed an amazing difference in the texture of my hair. The ends look smoother and with less frizz than when I straightened my hair without Naturally Straight.
