Smooth, Frizz-Free Hair Can Be Yours!

August 11, 2015

There’s just something about smooth, shiny hair! If you have ever struggled to achieve this look, then this is your definitive guide to all things smooth!

Whether your hair is naturally straight, curly, wavy or something in between, Aveda Smooth Infusion can help you get the sleek, frizz-free style you desire.

To achieve the smoothest results for your hair, your stylist will recommend the following steps:

Step 1: Shampoo and Condition

Our Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner are created from an exclusive plant infusion, derived from maize, guar bean and organic aloe.  This blend helps to smooth the surface of your hair while significantly reducing frizz and unwanted wave. With the added bonus of protecting against surface damage from heat styling, Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner are the best foundation, for building your smoothing routine.

Smooth Infusion Smoothing Masque deep conditions your hair with cupuacu and shea butters to reduce unwanted volume and soften hair, while helping seal in moisture and lock out frizz, even in intense humidity. Smoothing Masque leaves your hair smooth, with natural movement and reduces frizzy volume by 50% after one use. You may want to use this one once a week or more, depending on the amount of frizz and curl you are trying to reduce.

Step 2: Prep

The next step in achieving smooth, shiny hair is to prep your hair. A prep product prepares your hair to receive styling products while helping to create and maintain the desired look. Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother makes styling faster and easier.

We use the same blend of organic aloe, maize and guar bean to create a smooth surface on hair. Style Prep Smoother defends against humidity for up to 12 hours, while protecting from heat damage. A fresh citrus-floral blend featuring organic bergamot, organic palmarosa, Turkish rose and Australian sandalwood, provide a soft aroma for the hair. This aroma is featured in all of the Smooth Infusion products.

Step 3: Choose your desired outcome and select the right products.

For Smooth Hair with Natural Movement – Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Cream

This is a newer addition to the Smooth Infusion family. Packed with cupuacu and shea butters, the Nourishing Styling Cream helps to seal in moisture and lock out frizz all day. After applying Style Prep Smoother to your damp, towel dried hair, apply Nourishing Styling Cream and either blow dry, or air dry for your desired look.

Smooth with Flexible HoldBrilliant Universal Styling Cream

Although this one is not a member of the Smooth Infusion family, Brilliant Universal Styling Cream works wonders for smoothing hair! If your hair is coarse, dry or tangles easily, Brilliant Universal Styling Cream helps to add definition, moisture and shine. Rub a little into the palms of your hands and smooth evenly through damp hair. You can also use Universal Styling Cream on dry hair for more shine! When used on damp hair, either air dry or blow dry for a sleeker finish.

Occassionally Straight – Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener

Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener, straightens curls, waves and kinks, polishes and protects from heat damage. Glossing Straightener provides all day frizz and fly-away control, lustrous shine and 12 hour humidity defense! After using Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother, apply Glossing Straightener evenly to damp hair and blow dry for best results.

Straighten with Every Shampoo – Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight

This one is also a newer addition to the Smooth Infusion family. Naturally Straight helps to progressively loosen curls and waves so that your hair becomes straighter with every use. Natural plant-derived fibers attach to the hair, helping to hold your straight style day after day, while fending off frizz. This makes straight styling faster and easier. For women who are transitioning from relaxed, chemically straightened hair, to their natural texture, Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight can help to ease the transition by keeping your hair smoother, longer. After apply Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother, thoroughly apply Naturally Straight cream in sections, then blow dry and flat iron if desired.

Step 4: Finish

After your desired, smooth style has been achieved, you may choose to finish your look with a couple of drops of our Dry Remedy Daily Treatment Oil or a bit of hair Spray. Air Control hairspray is a favorite for flexible hold!

Following these steps will help you tame frizz, smooth and straighten your hair, in between visits to your stylist!


Aveda researches and responsibly harvests the best, plant based ingredients for all of the Aveda products. The benefits of some of the powerhouse ingredients in the products mentioned in this article are below:

Cupuacu Butter is derived from the fruit of the Cupuacu tree; a tropical rainforest tree, similar to the cacao tree. This butter has been shown to penetrate the hair shaft to provide moisture and shine, while the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals nourish the hair to combat frizz. Cupuacu butter can also help seal the cuticle to keep moisture in, longer.

Shea Butter is derived from the African Shea Tree. Shea butter is very moisturizing as it absorbs into the hair, instead of sitting on top of the hair strand. It has also been shown to benefit hair growth, seal the hair shaft, protect hair from UV rays, soften the hair and soothe scalp irritation.

Maize is rich in Beta Carotene, which is vital for the maintenance of healthy skin and hair. Consumption of maize, or corn, has been shown to strengthen hair follicles, combat hair loss and dryness. Maize is also packed with omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids, vitamins C and E and lycopene, to assist with maintaining smooth, frizz free hair.

Guar Bean helps to improve the surface texture of hair, making it easier to comb. It also provides moisture, to improve the softness and smoothness of hair. Guar Bean is unique in that it is one of very few conditioning agents which will not build up in the hair, even with repeated use. So, hair won’t begin to feel heavy, or greasy.

Organic Aloe is a superstar! When used in hair, the benefits are remarkable. Not only can aloe help alleviate dandruff and restore the healthy pH balance of the scalp and hair, but it can also moisturize, aid in detangling and reduce frizz!

Jojoba Oil is extracted from a shrub which is native toArizona,California andMexico. This oil is very similar in molecular structure, to the oil your skin naturally produces and is readily accepted by the skin and scalp! Jojoba oil easily penetrates the hair shaft to moisturize from the inside and provide shine, elasticity and softness to hair. It has also been used to help with dandruff and dry, itchy skin and scalp.
