AVEDA Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight Review

At the time I write this review I am living in Tokyo, Japan. The air is very humid and it KILLS the texture of my hair. I decided to review  AVEDA’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight

How AVEDA describes this product:

progressively straightens curls with every use

  • As you blow-dry your hair, plant-derived fibers help create a locking layer to help hold your hair straight, day after day*
  • Organic cassava root helps form a barrier against intense humidity to help you forget about frizz
  • Straight styling becomes faster and easier


*After 5 consecutive applications of naturally straight, hair will stay straight for up to 3 washes. “

Manufacturers instructions:

Towel-dry your hair. Thoroughly apply naturally straight styling creme in sections and blow-dry. Flat-iron if you wish. 

My review: 

I started with clean towel dried hair and sectioned my hair into 4 quadrants (top, sides, and back).

After releasing a section I applied a nickel sized amount of product a few inches away from the scalp to the ends. *Be careful and do not put too much product near your roots or else your hair will be very flat to your head.

I then proceeded to blow dry on high settings using tension on a large metal round brush.

After drying each section my hair was noticeably heavier and obviously straighter, and shinier. I was really happy with it because my hair usually looks very frizzy even after a solid blow out and flat iron.

What I really like about this product is that it doesn’t require me to use extensive heat. My hair is very sensitive to heat and I avoid it as much as possible.

I also like this product because it doesn’t contain caustic ingredients. Other straightening methods (such as Keratin treatments or Brazilian Blowouts) realease gasses such as formaldehyde when applied. I rather not expose myself to these dangers!
The downside to this method of straightening (as opposed to a keratin treatment) is that it doesn’t last as long.

The upside is that it is more effective and long lasting than a regular blowout and flat iron. I will definitely keep using this product!

Where to buy and how much: 

You can purchase these products directly through AVEDA or any AVEDA concept salon. I paid $26 for a 5 oz tube.
