Stylist Naomi Dove (aveda it girl)
The beauty of texture is versatility! The desire to go from coily to straight and back again requires steps to ensure delicate coils and curls are protected. Aligning your routine with a system of products that start with a protective foundation. Hair that is cleansed and conditioned properly with smooth infusion™ shampoo and conditioner sets the stage for maximum effect of the blow dry cream. Creating a clean canvas prevents overheating of strands due to buildup which can lead to heat damage. The cream (applied on damp hair before blow drying) then sets the tone for that space to allow a sleeker finish and longer lasting results.
Stylist Tracy Freeman
The heat styling cream is the perfect product for smooth, shiny and sleek hair. I love that I can use one product to achieve this end result. The hair has movement and shine after using just a minimum amount of the heat styling cream. My guests love it!! 3C Texture ~ Thick ~ High Density: I used a quarter size amount on wet hair after emulsifying in my hands. Blow dried the hair until completely dry. Instead of a sleek look, I was able to create one pass curls with shine, no frizz and hold with no hairspray.
