the key to using universal styling cream successfully is the amount you're using, for thick coarse hair i would recommend using no bigger than a quarter amount on damp hair and no more than a nickel size on dry hair. for medium to thin hair a dime size amount will do for use on damp and dry hair. experimenting with product is one of my favorite things to do, and with Aveda products it's easy to use less since Aveda concentrates all of their products using pure flower and plant essences. so start with a small amount and add more if you feel the need.
i personally love using the universal styling cream before i use a flat iron or other heat styling tools on my hair, it gives great protection and gives hair a glossy smooth finish. the humectants (or moisturizing ingredients) in brilliant universal styling cream help keep moisture in the hair instead of drying it out, and of course Aveda uses only the best ingredients in their products. universal styling cream uses 100% certified organic aloe to moisturize the hair from the inside out!
