I have been using Aveda hair care products since before my son was born. Nothing else makes my hair look, feel and smell as good as their products do. Now, since the birth of my son, I have had to work a little harder to get my hair to look presentable and, well, not dull. Now Aveda has introduced the shampoo version of their Brilliant hair gel and pomade. I cannot tell you what a difference a drop of this product will make in the condition of your hair, whether it is long and curly (like mine) or short and straight or somewhere in between. While I have always loved Aveda's devotion to creating plant-based products, I am even more impressed that they have also are the first beauty company to go totally green. Their manufacturing facilities are completely wind-powered. They definitely have my business.
