Review: Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil

Hello, everyone. Today I’m sharing my thoughts on Aveda’s Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil*. I’ve been using this oil for a few weeks in the hope it will replenish the loss of moisture from the bitter, cold months we’ve been having. It’s not just the skin that suffers in winter but (certainly in my case), the hair gets blasted just as much.

The concept is simple: apply a few drops to hydrate and nourish dry, lifeless looking tresses. It can be used on wet hair before blow-drying, after to finish off and a little bit goes a long way and for a more intense treatment, applied from root to tip before wrapping in a silk scarf and going to sleep. I’m not sure I’d be willing to sacrifice a silk scarf for that, mind…

The key ingredient of Buriti Oil lends itself to instantly hydrate with olive oil added to seal in the moisture and pomegranate to lock it all in.

Surprisingly the oil isn’t thick and greasy so it doesn’t leave a residue behind. The formula is void of silicones as well. It’s clear like water and in consistency, as well as lightweight which is good for my porous, fine and coloured hair that seems to slurp up and then slump when the density of oil comes into the equation. This oil is perfectly fine to use every day.

My hair is long overdue a cut so the ends aren’t in great state (albeit hardly any split ends!) but the oil has certainly helped improve its appearance and softened the strands. The glossiness, not so much but that is due to abrasive weather, living in a hard water area and generally the polluted conditions of residing in London.

I find this more favourable than other hair oils or gloopy serums that start off well but subside from the build-up. With this oil, it’ll wash out easily too. A 30ml bottle of this will set you back by £20.50 and can be found on Look Fantastic.

    Wow, Britny! That means you must have completely cleaned out Aveda! I miss their customised colour shampoos. It was such a clever idea to create bespoke colour shampoos and I always went to Aveda when I had red hair.
