My second trip into testing Aveda hair care products (my first test didn’t go so well)- this time I’ve got the Dry Remedy family. The Dry Remedy line consists of a shampoo, conditioner, and a deep-conditioning masque.
Aveda Dry Remedy Shampoo
I LOVE the scent on this shampoo! That was the first thing I noticed in the shower. And the shampoo is super creamy- almost like a body butter type of product. It contains buriti oil, palm conditioners, ylang ylang and pomegranate.
You don’t need much to get a good lather, so err on the side of too little until you figure out how much you need for your particular hair (especially since this is on the pricey side).
My hair was certainly nicely moisturized after use. I still felt the need to use a conditioner, but it was no where near as dry as normal. After air drying my hair had a lot of bounce, but also quite a few bends, kinks, and flyaways. So while I enjoyed the moisturizing properties and scent, I’m not in love with the results of this shampoo.
Aveda Dry Remedy Conditioner
Well, bascially everything I said about the Shampoo applies to the Dry Remedy Conditioner. It’s a good product, but nothing stellar. Again, the scent is wonderful, but my fine, colored hair was a flyaway and overly-bed-headed mess after use.
Aveda Dry Remedy Masque
After testing the first two products in the family, I didn’t expect much from the Dry Remedy Masque. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I used this as a twice weekly, deep-conditioning treatment and my hair really benefited. It didn’t leave me flat, greasy or oily. My hair had enough bounce and it worked wonders after I colored my hair. Great restorative hair masque! So far, this is the one Aveda hair product that I’ve really enjoyed testing.
The entire Dry Remedy line is available in Aveda salons or on Aveda.com. The shampoo & conditioner are $24 each, the masque is $26. Or pick up the entire kit for $74.
