I confess, that like a lot of women, I am not very kind to my hair! I subject it to all sorts of physical, heat, chemical and environmental stressors with regular hair drying, straightening, curling and highlighting, as well as UV exposure and swimming chlorine exposure, all of which unfortunately do damage my hair.
As hair damage is one of my main hair concerns I was excited to trial the following Aveda hair products:
- Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo
- Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner, and
- Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair.
Aveda Damage Remedy products repair hair from the four leading causes of damage including chemical, heat, environmental and physical.
Aveda creates high performance plant based hair, skin and body products.
It has the apt tag line of ‘Aveda – The art and science of pure flower and plant essences’.
The ingredients Aveda uses are of the highest quality and are sourced through partnerships with indigenous and traditional communities around the world.
Aveda’s mission is to care for the world we live in, from the products it makes, to the ways in which the brand gives back to society.
Aveda is a beauty industry environmental pioneer and leader having set many new benchmarks for environmental responsibility in beauty.
Since 1999 Aveda’s annual Earth Month campaign has raised more than $44 million to support environmental projects around the world!
Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo
Exposure to everyday environmental pollution can dull hair and contribute to breakage.
Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo gently washes away the pollutants that can damage hair with surfactants derived from lipid-rich babassu oil, while helping to repair and strengthen hair.
The Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo is a translucent pale yellowish colour with almost a gel like consistency.
Like all the Aveda Damage Remedy products the Aveda Damage Remedy shampoo has a lovely uplifting ‘pure-fume’ aroma which includes certified organic bergamot, mandarin and ylang ylang essential oils.
As with all the Damage Remedy hair products the Aveda Damage Remedy Shampoo ingredients include quinoa which is called a ‘complete protein’ because these little seeds are packed with essential amino acids.
Hair is mostly made up of protein and Damage Remedy with quinoa helps fill in damaged cuticles for instant repair.
As part of Aveda’s environmental responsibility commitment the Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo comes in a plant-respecting packaging bottle with a press top lid.
I found this shampoo effective in ridding my hair of dirt and oils whilst still leaving my hair hydrated. It lathers to a nice consistency and doesn’t over lather like some other shampoos. You only need a small quantity of the product for each wash. My hair felt soft and smooth after using it.
Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner
Brushing your hair and pulling it back into tight ponytails, as I tend to do, can abrade and even wear away the hair’s cuticles. Environmental elements can also play havoc and damage hair.
Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner is a thickish opaque white conditioner that comes in a tube with a removable screw top lid.
This conditioner helps to repair damaged hair. As with the Aveda Damage Remedy Shampoo, the Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner ingredients include quinoa. Quinoa protein penetrates and reconstructs hair.
Aveda Conditioner Damage Remedy provides intense detangling and fortifies hair to help prevent breakage, leaving hair smooth and touchably soft.
I love how this conditioner doesn’t weigh down my hair, and how soft, healthy and easy to manage my hair is after using it.
Once again I love the amazing uplifting scent of this Aveda hair conditioner!
Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair
The use of high heat on your hair is so damaging! It makes hair brittle and fragile, increasing hair breakage.
Unfortunately even knowing the damage heat causes I continue to use my hair dryer, straightener and curler!
That’s why I really appreciate and love products such as Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair.
Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is a boost for your hair and protects it against heat. It instantly fortifies the hair’s surface, while safeguarding strands against breakage and thermal damage up to 450 degrees.
I love the multi-functioning nature of this product in that it both repairs damage and helps protect hair from heat styling.
It is safe to use on colour treated hair as well as normal hair types.
This product comes in a plant-respecting packaged tube with a flip top lid. The product has a runny consistency and is opaque white in colour.
It is easy to use. You simply shake the tube well and dispense a small amount into your hands to apply through your hair. You then comb it through to distribute it evenly and style your hair as you like.
Since using the above three Aveda Damage Remedy products my hair has felt soft, healthy and manageable. I’ve noticed an improvement in my hair with less flyaways and healthier ends.
Knowing that not only are these products repairing my hair but also protecting it against the effects of further heat, environmental and physical damage is also giving me more peace of mind when styling my hair.
