Aveda Product Spotlight: Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade named Best in Beauty

We’re always raving about our amazing, naturally sourced and ethical products, but when a top beauty magazine takes note, we jump for joy!

av_A1KG_254This past October, our brilliant anti-humectant pomade received Allure’s “Best in Beauty Award” for its ability to “repel moisture while adding polish to coarse, frizzy hair”.

This satiny pomade repels moisture from your hair, helping to prevent frizziness and flyaways. It’s great in all climates, but excellent in humid weather, taming curls and flyaways to give hair a polished look.

Aveda’s resident expert on textured hair, Tippi Shorter, comments, “I love using anti-humectant pomade on textured hair guests. It’s great to use when hair is worn curly to provide a great moisture barrier to prevent hair from swelling in humid climates, and great when worn straight to keep hair soft and ends smooth.”

You can use Aveda brilliant anti-humectant pomade in 3 ways:

  • As a finisher: after blowing your hair straight, finish with Aveda brilliant anti-humectant pomade. It will repel moisture, prevent frizzies and maintain your style throughout the most humid day.
  • Mix a small amount of  brilliant anti-humectant pomade before blow drying and apply to straight, wet hair to lock out humidity and resist curl.
  • As a styling gel: apply Aveda brilliant anti-humectant pomade to damp or dry hair, slick back and secure hair tightly with a ponytail holder.
