Helps to keep the strays and fine baby flyaways in place. Only wish it came in a smaller size as I only use when I style my hair for a special occasion. I'll probably have this for the rest of my life.

The entire Light Elements line is great, but this is one of my go-tos. It is feather light so it’s great on fine hair that can go limp. It adds a little bit of texture and a small amount of hold so it’s a great choice for numerous styling options. One of my favorite uses it adding it to damp hair and then blow drying. I find it is more effective that way and easier to control as opposed to working it through dry hair. But even if you do, you don’t have to worry about your hair feeling crunchy/stiff.

This is seriously the best hair pomade. If your hair has short layers it works awesome to give shape and definition to your style. It holds well without being sticky or heavy. The scent is so nice. It has the classic Aveda herbal mix of rosemary and mint.

Love this product. I love the scent and how well it works. It’s especially is great for when you do a slick hair style/up do. It’s also great to smooth away after straightening my hair. I have fine short hair. A little goes a long way- so it lasts.

This is actually not the most updated packaging for this product. I like to use Defining Whip for my blowouts. It gives a great cushion for volume and has just the right amount of hold. You don't need much of this product to get the job done. About a nickle or quarter sized amount is plenty!! It can also be used all over the entire head, or on dry hair for more definition.

This is my ABSOLUTE favorite hair styling product. It disappeared for a while and was super hard to find. Glad to see it has made a comeback. Aveda makes amazing products, I wish they would stop discontinuing my stuff!

This is a great product. It holds your hair in place but it is still light and doesn't make you feel weighed down. I love it and definitely recommend this product!

I have always liked the Aveda company. This product is pretty awesome because it's so light (and the whipped texture makes it fun to handle). Gives the hair a nice hold without making it feel too heavy or sticky.
