Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo And Conditioner Review

Aveda Smooth Infusion bottle.

Whenever you try a product which doesn’t meet your expectations, do you usually tell your friends about it or write a review on it? Often people do, especially if they are very unhappy with something. However, how often do you write a review on a product you truly enjoyed? Somehow we tend to forget to share our little secrets of success.

Well, I love taking care of my hair and love seeing beautiful people around, and these combined factors pushed me into writing this review on an amazing product I have discovered for myself recently. Get ready, ladies, you are about to find out the secret to that perfectly straight, shiny and sleek hair you have always dreamed about.

Smoother, Straighter Hair With Aveda

Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner are my real-life wizards. I must say in advance that Aveda products are not cheap at all, but keep in mind that we are not talking about regular shampooing here. These two products help you to achieve results you would usually need weeks to achieve; plus, they reduce and sometimes completely remove the need to use the flattening iron.

Less hot tools = better for your hair and better for retaining moisture. Let me tell you a couple words about Aveda so that you will get a general idea about what kind of products you will be using.

Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda.

Aveda was founded in 1978 by a talented stylist, who considered nature to be an endless source of beauty. He was convinced that beauty professionals have to work with all natural cosmetics, which should be made from the best natural ingredients without harming nature. Aveda is an art and a science of the true power of flowers and plants. Aveda is without a doubt a professional brand offering only clinically approved hair and skin care products. All of Aveda’s cosmetics are based on natural extracts.

These products are not only high quality and beneficial to your health, they are also environmentally friendly, which is extremely important. Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner is a premium hair care product and does exactly what the manufacturer promises. It is a great product, which will not only help you fight that frizz and flatten your hair, but will also leave it light, shiny and enriched with a fantastic smell.

Let me get this straight. Of course, we are not talking about any aggressive chemical treatments so you ladies can’t expect your hair types to go from crazy curls to absolutely straight after one washing. But, if you use it regularly and follow the instructions, very soon you will notice the way your hair is changing its structure. Don’t worry, there is nothing to be scared of, Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner are made of natural ingredients and will never damage your hair, so if one day you change your mind and want to go back to your playful curls there won’t be any problems with that.

I love playing with different hair styles. My hair is naturally curly, and it is also long. The problem that I am facing is that if I wear it curly for a few days in a row it tangles so bad that after washing or trying to brush I lose a lot of hair and it is breaking me. Even though many people say that straightening it isn’t good, when I do it I actually save it. As you might have guessed, I used my flattening iron a lot, and it started causing a lot of trouble.

I don’t lose so much hair, but I worried about dealing with dandruff or dry scalp, so I started looking for alternative ways to flatten it out. I went to my favorite salon and asked my hair stylist about products which can help me to reduce the usage of a flattening iron. She told me about Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner, which I found too expensive at a first glance, but then I took a second look at my hair and thought I had to give it a chance.

My Aveda Experience

I ordered my first Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner set online and decided to try it out as soon as it was delivered to my door. Well, it definitely won my vote with a unique fresh citrus-floral scent. I found out that this is the aroma that Aveda gets by combining organic palmarosa, bergamot, rose and Australian sandalwood extracts.

The texture of both the shampoo  and the conditioner is very pleasant, not too thick and not too runny at the same time. It doesn’t feel like you need to apply too much to lather even longer hair, so that means it will last a while and will be worth the money. I studied the Aveda ingredients carefully and found out that both of these products contain hydrolyzed wheat protein complex, which protects hair from the effects of thermal treatments, which is exactly what I needed because I already knew I would be blow-drying my hair and ran out of my “take the heat” products.

The experience of shampooing didn’t differ a lot from the usual treatment. This shampoo foams easily and makes the process very pleasant due to the smell which I have already talked about. A small bit of personal advice: when shampooing your hair try not to get too much shampoo on the length and the ends of your hair. Gently massage it into your scalp and don’t worry about the rest of the hair not being cleansed, it will get enough of it when you will start rinsing the shampoo off.

If you massage shampoo into the ends you will most probably just damage and dry your hair out, no matter what brand and type of shampoo you use. So rinse it off thoroughly with warm water. I did so and applied Aveda Smooth Infusion Conditioner to the length and the ends, left it in for about 5 minutes or so, washed off thoroughly with warm water and rinsed my hair with cold water like I usually do during my hair routine. This helps to close the hair cuticles, leaving all the active ingredients inside it and letting them do their job. This trick also protects your sexy hair and adds it extra shine.

I love the way Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo cleansed my hair while not removing extra oil from it and leaving it hydrated. Usually I brush my hair through right after drying it a little with a towel,  otherwise it gets all tangled and impossible to deal with. This time I didn’t feel the need because Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner also detangles the hair, which is an obvious bonus.

I decided to test the antithermal effect of these products and started blow drying right away. Well, believe it or not, I could feel how my hair changed after the first application. Even though it was not completely straight, it was amazingly smooth and silky. The few curls that I had left were beautiful and I felt like there was nothing else that needed to be done to them. My hair was not twisted or pushy anymore; it felt soft and flexible and not rigid and textured as it used to before.

The Best Prices For Aveda Products

Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner system was specially designed for those who use thermal tools to smooth and straighten their hair. Since it is not an active chemical treatment, it can’t change your hair completely, but the effect lasts till the next wash and it also increases with time if you use these products in duet longer.
