Progressively Loosen Your Curls with @Aveda #AvedaNaturallyStraight #ad

Aveda Smoothing Infusion Naturally Straight review

I received a complimentary set of the full line of Aveda’s Smooth Infusion products to try out and report back. Of course getting a bunch of good hair products wouldn’t color my opinion though.  And my opinion is that this Smooth Infusion line is fantastic for my curly, biracial hair…but not for what you think.
