We had a great day shopping in Spokane yesterday.
We don’t do the mall/new clothes scene very often
so it was a treat. Ended up at the Aveda store where
I hoped to replenish my supply of Aveda Elixir. I
purchased my last bottle (the 17 oz one) over a year
and a half ago. I only use a dime-nickel dollop so
it lasts me a long time and helps soften my somewhat
But Aveda has bizarrely discontinued this product. It
is a well known and well loved product. Award-winning
even. The clerk there told me that “Aveda thought that
if you have to use a leave-in, in addition to shampoo &
conditioner, then it probably means you are using the wrong
shampoo & conditioning products”. Yeah, that makes
perfect sense. They sacrifice all those profits to help
us find the correct shampoo. I haevn’t found out much
about it on the internet. One person said it was due to
“problems with their source”. And
Avoid or Adore did a helpful test of similar
products but they are all British products.
Now instead of my smooth waves I'll be little
Ms. Frizzy again.
