      Disadvantages

      This is a great product with a not so great price tag.

      Those of you who have already been introduced to my reviews will know by now that I'm a bit of a "product-aholic" when it comes to my hair and skin care. Recently I went to a local salon to have my hair cut and styled, and as I was pestering the lovely stylist about the products she was using on my hair, she told me about Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip.

      I listened with interest, always eager to learn and find out about a decent new product to try, and I somehow managed to buy a tub of the defining whip before I had left the salon.

      At £18 I was hoping it was worth it...

      It was.

      **The Product**
      The product is contained in a nifty looking pale blue 4.1oz/125ml tub. Although the lid looks like the screw on type, it actually has a flip-up section you can use if you prefer. I find the flip top easier than trying to screw the lid back on when I have product all over my hand. The description says...

      "Infuses all hair types with weightless medium hold and separation. With lavender water."

      This product smells gorgeous. It was actually the smell that made me ask about it in the salon. It looks like a white cream/mousse type consistancy, and a little goes a very long way, so it's pretty economical. If you have a look around online, you can actually find it for £12 a pot, so a big difference to the £18 I paid :o)

      Once my hair has been dried and styled how I want it to be (usually this means using straighteners for me), I rub a small blob of the whip into my hands and run them through my hair where I want to add separation and definition (ie. through my layers). It works really well on my hair. I have tried lots of similar products, but they have usually left my hair feeling sticky and looking dull where they have been applied. This defining whip doesn't add any weight to my hair, it isn't sticky, and doesn't leave any dulling residue.

      Definitely a product I will be buying again for the £12 price tag online, not sure I could stretch to paying £18 though on a regular basis.
