Aveda Smooth Infusion Smoothing Masque

Fact: when it comes to hair, women always want what we haven't got. And yes, there are plenty of women with 'unwanted' volume, who long for sleeker, smoother hair.

This instantly removes coarseness, leaving hair super-smooth and making blow-drying easier as the brush glides through. It works via emollient oils in the mask - organic cupuaçu and shea butter - creating a barrier around each hair which keeps natural moisture in, while smoothing the cuticle. (And we're not talking overnight, here: 2-3 minutes is all it takes.)

Best of all for us is that blissful, instantly soothing Aveda-ish smell: here, Turkish rose, bergamot, palmarosa and sustainable Australian sandalwood. (Can a mask be a mini-meditation? We think so.)

It's a real smoothie, actually.
