Dry hair is the bane of my life (I know, I know, #FWPs and all that!) so whenever I see a haircare range specifically devoted to this problem, I'm all over it.
Aveda's Dry Remedy* range has been getting some hype lately so I've been trying out these samples to see whether I think it's worth your hard earned money or not. This range uses a special 'Dry Remedy Moisturizing System' to deeply penetrate dry hair and effectively give it the big drink of moisture that it needs. The Deep Moisture Complex is made up of a mix of ingredients, some of which are plant derived, so it utilizes the likes of Buriti Oil, Pomegranate Oil and Olive Oil that are renowned for their hydrating properties.
Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo (250ml, £20.50, link)
First thing you'll notice when you open the bottle is the scent; this range smells really good. It's like a sweet floral with hints of Rose, Ylang Ylang, Ginger Lily and Lavender, mixed in with a bit of woodiness - just divine! The shampoo itself is concentrated so you only need to use a small amount each time and I didn't feel the need to do a double wash with it either. It doesn't really lather up as it feels like a thick cream, but after rinsing, I thought that my hair felt a lot more smoother in the shower than it usually does.
Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner (250ml, £22.50, link)
The matching conditioner is brilliant, it works like magic and deeply hydrates brittle, dry and damaged hair. The consistency is perfect (not too thick and not too thin) and I saw results after the first use. My hair is quite frizzy and wavy as well as dry, but after using this, it was so silky smooth and easy to comb through.
Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Masque (150ml, £28.50, link)
I love using hair masks on a weekly basis and this one feels like a seriously intensive version of the conditioner above (which is what it should be). It's a great quick fix as you only need to leave it on for 2-5 minutes and it leaves your hair feeling fuller, bouncier and super shiny to boot!
Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil (30ml, £17.50, link)
No dry hair range could be complete without a good hair oil and I'm happy to say that this is definitely a good one. A little goes a very long way (you only need a few drops) and it eliminates any frizz and flyaways immediately. I've been keeping this in my handbag for days when I have my hair up and I want to keep it looking sleek. I also haven't experienced any problems with product buildup with this yet, but would recommend using less than you think as you it can be tempting to overdo it with hair oil and there's really no need to!
Summary: I'm very impressed with Aveda's Dry Remedy range and can't recommend it enough to anyone who's plagued with the difficulty of having dry hair. It's pricey, there's no getting around that, but I imagine the Shampoo and hair Oil will last longer than similar products I've tried in the past.
