Thanks for the Aveda tip. I used their products before I was vegan and the smell is amazing. I emailed the company to inquire about their ingredients and got an email saying that someone would get in touch with me. I never heard anything more.....however, Aveda was recently named a readers' favorite in VegNews so I guess that means the ingredient are vegan. I like the Giovanni products, too, but haven't found a hairspray. Thanks.
