It might say light on the packaging, but don't let Aveda's Light Elements Defining Whip ($24) fool you. While it is lightweight in feel, this airy, whipped wax gives a decent amount of hold. Use it on almost-dry hair with a blow dryer to enhance volume and shine. Apply to dry hair to add texture and pieciness to ends and layers. It can also be used to give beach waves and tousled updos some added oomph sans the heaviness or tacky feel. Best of all, it instantly tames flyaways and static with a soothing, fresh scent to boot. And since it can be used in all hair types and lengths, you'll find that this light yet mighty hair wax might just be the only product you'll need this Summer.

These colors are usually kept to cooler temperatures, but whose dark Summer polish did you like best?
