Like all things Aveda, it's plant-based. It smells very strongly like the Whole Foods beauty department, which is to say, full of essential oils. It's a bit off-putting for me, but if that's your...

I don't get the rave about Aveda products, I never have. This one is no different than the others I have tried. It's ok, but too pricey for what it does. You can get the same result with DS brands...

It smells disgusting, doesn't distribute evenly through hair, and makes my hair so stiff and sticky even after it's dried. I have thick frizzy hair and I don't think this product helped AT ALL, it...

This is by far the best gel I've ever used. Now you have to really know if a gel is the right product for what hairstyle you are trying to achieve. I'll be the first to admit gel isn't the most...

This stuff worked like an average hair gel. Kinda on the Pricey side in my opinion 5 fl oz for $16.00. This is a medium hold hair gel and it held my curls for about 2-3 days and it seemed to flake...

Just OK. And for $14 bucks I want something better than just OK. The stylists keep trying to sell me this and Be Curly, but the best thing I've found for my wavy/curly hair is the humectant...

I agree with the other reviewer that this gel cetainly isn't better than the forming gel but it smells wonderful. It does give some hold and curl to my hair. It works better when used in...
