About a year ago, my normally straight hair started to inexplicably curl. Thanks, mother nature! While I am loving my new curly 'do, sometimes I miss my straight hair. That's when I turn to my aveda smooth infusion straightener. I only bought a sample tube, because I was skeptical, but wow! You only need a tiny bit of this product smoothed in your damp hair to make it just about stick straight and very sleek looking. I follow up with a flat iron myself, but you woudln't have to. And when I get up the next morning? My hair still looks basically perfect. This stuff packs some power!
You can purcahse this product at Aveda salons (we have a training school here in Grand Rapids) or on the Aveda website.
