With the cold weather, I’ve been more prone to blow-drying my hair to prevent myself from catching the sniffles. But with lots of blow-drying comes brittle hair that’s been losing its sheen from too much heat.
In hopes to help my mane’s current state of drab, I tried out Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner ($24 US each).
Containing buriti oil (from palm trees that grow in wet areas in tropical South America) and promegranate for moisture, I love that the exotic moisturizing ingredients are combined with more traditional scents like rose geranium, ylang ylang, and a hint of vanilla.
Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner claims to improve dry hair by up to 63%, but for me it fell short. My hair still feels a little coarse and even a bit weighed down. Normally I wash my hair every other day but with these, after a day and a half I’m feeling like the grease fairy is coming to visit.
It may be because I have fine hair therefore the oils are weighing it down. If you have thicker or coarser strands this collection might work well for you as there are tons of positive reviews on the Aveda site.
The Bottom Line: For me, Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner doesn’t beat the brittle but it smells great – floral and earthy but not over the top.
