Aveda Smooth Infusion Challenge

Last night I was invited to the fabulous Aveda Institute in Covent Garden for a wash and blow dry treatment as part of their challenge to put their newest hair care line 'Smooth Infusion' to the test.

Aside from having a great time with their lovely stylists and staff, I was really impressed with the way the products made my hair look. Here is a before and after shot for you to compare...
I had just been caught in the rain before I went in so it was perfect timing to have my hair 'smoothed' as I was just alittle frizz-tastic!
So I know you'll all be thinking the same thing as me... It's all very well the products working fabulously when your hair is in the hands of an equally fabulous hair dresser, but what about at home?!
Woof wasn't meant to be in the shot, she just wanted to chew the bottles :S

Well that's what I'm going to be doing over the next few weeks: putting the products to the test in the 'real' world! The hydrolized wheat protein in the Smooth Infusion line is meant to be so fine it is able to protect the hair cuticle, acting as a barrier against heat and humidity, leaving you protected from frizz 'for up to twelve hours'. I'll be putting the products to the test not only during home styling, but also against the hair nightmares that occur in daily life... sweaty train journeys, gym sessions, damp and drizzly evenings and any other activity where my hair is usually left looking more than a little fazzled!

I've used Aveda on and off for a very long time and have loved all of the products I've used in the past, so it is fair to say I have high expectations! I'd love to know if any of you have tried this line already and what your thoughts are? Wish me luck!

  12. I have a serum from that line and i love it. A little of those products go a looong way so use it sparingly! And the SMELL is amazing! I just wish Aveda wasn't so expensive. It really is worth the money though... I've used their hand cream for years now and it's the best hand cream I've EVER used!
