Just curious, tiny, which brand did you try - the Aura or the Aveda?

Hi tiny - Well, I have a small bottle of the older formula of Aveda, & it has alcohol as the 2nd ingredient. The Aura doesn't contain any alcohol, but I *think* it's been discontinued or going through a reformulation. For me, the performance is the same, it's just the alcohol tends to be drying if I use the Aveda too many days in a row.

They have them on sale now for 61, that's good for a gallon.
I pay 13 for 8 oz plus shipping if I don't drive an hour into town for my aveda fla gel. I love it so it's worth it but a gallon would be decadent

k so i found this site called Enk store that i googled ( never heard of it ) that has flax seed gel by Nirvana in a gallon for $58.65 , if i ship ground it comes to $67.64 (8.99 tax ) , is that good? anything shippied quicker comes to almost $100. i think the website says it days about 2-3 days to process the order and a week to get to my addy. im SO tempted to get it!
Edit: i would hope this is legit flax seed gel and a good site to order from.

Same gel that I found but you got a bit better deal. I have no clue about this site or the one you found either.
I can't imagine how long a gallon would last, that's kind of exciting to think the bottle wont' have to be replaced every week or two.

Thanks medusahair. the site that u found i never heard of it either. but the shipping for ground is more , even for 2-3 day delivery.your right on the other site i found is a lil more cheaper. i rather call to order by the site has no # , can only order it online. yea the flax gel on a 8oz wouldnt last me too long , my hair is a lil past shoulders and growing , med thick . i need a big 1 gallon .
