Aveda and No-Poo

I still get comments on the Aveda Elixir
problem - that being that Aveda doesn’t
make it anymore. So here’s an update
from an anonymous commenter:

“My hairdresser told me the reason that
Aveda discontinued the Elixir is that when
they were bought out by Estee Lauder, EL
decided that the Elixir was too expensive
to manufacture. So rather than just sell
it at premium, they discontinued it. So
if they are reformulating it for 2008, it
probably means it will contain different
& cheaper ingredients. Let's hope it is
still a good product, but it may not in the
end be the Elixir we have all known & loved
for 20 years. “

I have moved on from Elixir. I just started
using baking soda and apple cider vinegar -
JUST as in today was my first time. There is
a whole No Shampoo movement out there for
people with wavy or curly hair. You can read
about it here and lots of other places too like
here where there is a cool before/after shot.
