To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Purchased this a while back. I have been a fan of Aveda Products for years and had no difficulty finding Aveda stores around the globe until recently. I now buy Aveda online and am happy with everything I purchase. This item arrived intact and on time.
I’m a mixed black girl from Texas. My hair grows long but has some of the black girl textures. In San Antonio it can literally be coldish in the morning, hot & humid by the afternoon, cooler with rain in the evening, then humid and hot at night. My hair will be nice and flat when I leave my house & one hour later I’ll have Mufasa’s mane, but won’t look as nice. I read the comments carefully before I bought this & to my utter surprise this actually works. A few occasions it’s been really humid when I left the house & even rained. I returned home each time with my hair still flat. I don’t care for the smell of this so I only use a little, and that little amount goes a long way.
I don’t take time to write reviews a lot, but this actually helps. I didn’t think there was anything I could ever do to fight the humidity in Texas, but it does. I wish they had an odorless one but I have a sensitive nose. So if you like scented things it won’t bother you.
I have super curly, frizzy hair that I like to wear straight and live where the humidity is no bueno. This anti humectant has been a life saver of mine for over 9 years. I first apply my leave in conditioner then a little of this product before I blow dry/flat iron and then use just a coin size more at the very end to ensure my hair will combat that killer humidity and that’s it! It truly is a miracle product. The jar if you use it only as needed, can last months.
When I unscrewed the cap it looked whipped, not smooth like when I get it from the Aveda Salon, it is funnier than normal too. So, either it has been stored improperly (gotten too hot?) or it is fake? Know that i’ve Been using this (bought from Aveda realtors) for at least 15 years.
