#1: Great Aveda combo!!!
I am dealing with a family emergency at the moment, but I got a chance to get my haircut at an Aveda salon. The new Be Curly line is great! All of it is CG, and I noticed that the new smooth shampoo is also sulfate-free. My stylist suggested using the Be Curly shampoo and conditioner, then styling with a combo of the Be Curly Curl Control (about a quarter's worth on my shoulder length hair) and the Light Elements Defining Whip (about 1/3 the size of a quarter). I rub them together and apply to wet hair, then diffuse. The results are great: soft and frizz free, though crunchy while drying. You can add more of the Curl Control later in the day if your hair gets too big. I am really loving this, and it has lasted a whole two weeks (great record for me)! Added bonus: I can just rinse my hair, put in the stylers and dry without looking greasy or scary. I am truly impressed.
