Product Review: Aveda Dry Remedy Oil

Aveda’s new Dry Remedy Oil quickly became a must-have product in my professional hairstyling kit. I find myself using it on every guest during their service as it’s one of those incredible products that can benefit everybody’s hair type.

Dry Remedy Oil, 99.9% naturally derived, offers weightless shine and maximum condition to the hair without leaving a heavy, greasy finish like most other oils on the market. Other oils often contain silicones which makes a serum-like product. Those form a heavier type of styling aid, and can build up in the hair, weighing it down and leaving a greasy finish.

But because of the way Dry Remedy Oil is formulated, it offers great versatility. With any texture hair—even fine—I will add a few drops prior to styling, and then finish with a few drops for maximum softness and shine. This product is one of my secret weapons. Show a client how they can use it in their dry hair and they’re immediately hooked.

The benefits are real. It instantly adds up to 41% more moisture to the hair with its buriti oil. It also deeply penetrates the cuticle, and seals down any frizz or fly-aways. To demonstrate the full advantage of the oil, I like to apply the oil only to one side of their hair and then allow them to compare both sides. Sometimes guests have a hard time wrapping their head around why a stylist is telling them to add a new product to their routine. But offering a lesson on how to use it, and showing them the physical changes in their hair, ends up changing their mind.
