I’m not sure that I know anyone who has perfectly straight hair without using some kind of product or heat tool like a blow dryer or flat iron. My hair is pretty straight with some waves to it, which I always have to at least use a flat iron on, especially for my side swept bangs. I normally can’t even get away with just using a blow dryer and a brush, they still have this wave to them that doesn’t look good at all. A few weeks ago I was contacted by SheSpeaks to work with Aveda and try out their Aveda Naturally Straight Products on my hair and post about it on my blog. I have been using their products for the past 8 days, and I’m excited to share with you my results.

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.

The Aveda Naturally Straight products, have worked wonderful, although I don’t like the fragrance too much as it smells a bit like a minty citrus of some sort. My husband said it smelled good, so it may just be me. I don’t really care about the smell too much anyways as the product works great!

As you can see my hair has a little bit of a wave to it and it’s a bit frizzy, not sleek at all, which is what I always have to achieve with using additional products and heating tools. My hair even looks coarse here too. This is exactly why I was excited to try out this product.

After using Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight, my hair would stay straight up to 3 days after! It was so easy to use too. After using the Aveda Shampoo, Conditioner, and Prep Smoother, I would use the Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight by applying a nickle sized amount in my palms and rub together and work through my hair while it was still damp. I made sure to concentrate on the mid section through the ends of my hair, staying away from the roots of my hair.

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.

As you can see the product worked exceptionally great for me! This is a product I will be using for a long time. I give this product 4 out of 5 stars, ONLY because I was not a fan of the fragrance.

Aveda Naturally Straight retails for $26.00/5 oz., 150 ml and is available at Aveda stores and salons and online at aveda.com. To find a location near you, visit aveda.com.

I didn't see mention of it and was sort of freaked out about the notion of using heated styling tools without some kind of protectant, but I checked out their website and it would seem the Style-Prep Smoother has some stuff in it to protect from surface damage. Still, I would look into a spray that specifically protects against thermal damage before going to town with the blow dryer/flat iron. I'm sure Aveda has one, they make good products.

I have used their products before. They work alright. My hair tangles very easily. The only thing that I didn't like was that I couldn't wet comb my hair easily.

I am that rare unicorn with extremely straight hair. I don't even own a flat iron. I LOVE the Aveda Pure Abundance Products. They actually give my hair some body. I haven't heard anything negative about any of their products.
