AVEDA, the high-performance hair care brand with a mission to care for the world, is reintroducing a new and advanced Smooth InfusionTM collection, created to provide protection against frizz and humidity for a smooth, sleek finish that lasts. Even the most frizz-prone hair is instantly transformed with an advanced plant-powered technology that protects all hair types and textures from frizz for up to 72 hours with the collection’s multi-benefit stylers. I absolutely LOVE this collection. It helps me to achieve exactly this sleek look I love.
Tapping into the principles of Green Chemistry, the botanical technology in Aveda’s 95% naturally derived1 Smooth InfusionTM collection includes a Plant Polymer Shield and Botanical Smoothing Oil Blend, giving hair instantly smooth, sleek results in just one use. This dual-action technology protects from humidity without silicones.
How it works: First, a botanical complex created from castor bean plant extract instantly cloaks hair strands and repels water, giving silicone-free protection. Next, a smoothing botanical oil blend formulated with Kalahari Melon Seed Oil and Tamanu Oil smoothes and conditions cuticles for softness and shine.
«Leveraging our expertise in high-performance, naturally-derived materials, we were able to identify the Plant Polymer Shield in the Smooth InfusionTM collection used to block humidity and give frizz protection,» said Camille Sasik, Ph.D., Aveda’s Director of Hair Care Research and Development. «This is an exciting technological improvement that replaces silicones with plant-derived alternatives, without sacrificing performance — actually, it gives better, longer-lasting results than our prior silicone-based formula. That’s the power of Green Chemistry!»
