Win It: Sleek Hair Swag from AVEDA

Written by Ashley

A hybrid between a high performance leave-in treatment and a styling product, AVEDA’s Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother delivers 12 whole hours of shine.

Whether it’s a rainy fedora-clad commute to work, a windy stroll in the park, or a sweaty subway platform to even sweatier club action downtown… your hair is with you every single step of the way.  So why not treat it to something NICE for a change, to combat the heat styling, coloring, free-radicals and life-loving elements that are sucking the life out of your strands?

If you’re scared to try new hair-ware, take a cue from the pros. Once this seems easy enough to fit in to your lifestyle, you’d be silly not to take a shot. Award Winning AVEDA stylist  Antoinette Beenders says:

  • Always begin with freshly-washed hair. This is especially important if you want your sleek/smooth blow-out to last for several days.
  • Always blot wet hair with a towel to remove excess moisture. Don’t rub—rubbing creates frizz.
  • When hair is 100% dry, use cool air to set. This closes the cuticle and ensures your smooth blow-dry will last longer.
  • For thick/coarse hair, apply product before bed. This helps maximize smoothness and helps prevent excess volume in the morning.
