Girl, Have You Tried?: Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade

The Girl, Have You Tried? series of The Awkward Stage highlights products that I am currently loving right now. It's not a full's just a brief blurb about a product that I have tried, currently use and love . :)

My favorite product of the moment is Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade! Since I am straightening more, this product has been a key staple in my winter regimen. My hair is interesting in that although it is relaxed, my hair will frizz up like no one's business when it is straightened. I hate it! All that hard work goes down the drain in a matter of seconds and your hair winds up looking like a black cotton ball. Anyway, I tried this product on a whim and let me just has made all the difference. I typically apply this product after I finish flat ironing ( in sections) with a light hand. This product is cone-free, however, it can weigh your hair down quick if you aren't careful. Provided I don't sweat my hair out at night, my hair stays straight for about a week and I found it extremely useful in keeping my leave out straight when I wore straight half wigs. The only down side is that you will definitely come out of pocket for this product ($20 for freakin' 2 ounces of product!). However, if you do purchase it, you'll be glad you did.
Want to check it out? Get it at or your local Aveda store!
Have you tried it? Comment below and let me know what you think!


  1. LOL @ "black cotton ball"

    Something like this would so benefit me in the spring when the humidity starts to rise! I'll have to check it out!

    1. It is definitely a great product and it worth the money! Give it a shot!

  2. I have read a lot of good things about this product. What is the consistency like? Is it like a moisturizer or more like grease?

    1. Oddly enough, the consistency is kinda a combo of both but leans more toward the grease side (you can definitely weigh your hair down if you use too much...not unlike what can happen with a grease).

  3. Its really a great product, can defenitly recommend it , working a long time with aveda and love it ;-)
