TRIAL: Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil
I’m always on the look out for lighter hair product formulations. As my hair is very fine, I find some of my old favourites can sometimes weigh my hair down. I read a lot of positive reviews for Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil from women with fine hair, and as I’ve used a lot of Aveda products in the past, I thought I’d give it a try.
I’m really pleased I did. I only use 2 drops from my mid lengths to ends, but even after first use, my hair was soft and swishy, although it has to be said, not particularly shiny. I understand the moisturising effect is accumulative, so I’m looking forward to seeing an improvement in the condition of my hair.
Aveda products are formulated with flower and plant essences and the fragrance has been described as a ‘strong’ lavender scent. To me though, it’s more herbal, very reminiscent of Aveda’s wonderful Shampure Shampoo.
Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil a 99.9% naturally derived, daily leave-in treatment instantly moisturises dry hair and ends by 41% with buriti oil, leaving hair soft, supple and shiny.
- Buriti oil moisturises hair leaving it feeling soft, supple and shiny.
- Restores shine while controlling frizz and flyaways.

- Safe for colour-treated hair.
- Formulated without silicones.
HOW TO USE
Apply 2-4 drops of Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturising Oil to hands and work through damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends. Do not rinse.
My hairtype is thin, straight and halfway down my back. All I need is 5 drops concentrated at my tips to smooth out any frizz for the next 2 days.
This oil is so light in comparison to others I have tried, it does not weigh down my light hair, but rather allows my to blow dry my hair to a greater volume without the risk of frizz or static. Love it and would recommend to anyone.
I have a lot of fine, dry hair. I tried so many different hair oils, including the famous moroccan one. This has a completley different feel to it. Not greasy like the oils with silicone. It makes the hair shiny and soft and it smells great.
The best product I have bought for my hair in years, five drops for mid-length hair makes sure any frizzy ends and loose hairs are tamed and super shiny.
This product is excellent and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I use a few drops daily and it has changed the look and feel of the ends of my hair.
I have very dry over processed ends but this stuff made no difference to the dryness at all. (Oh!) I tried putting on 4 drops of product (2-4 drops is recommended) a few times a day – on wet hair and on dry hair – but it did nothing to improve the feel of my hair.
Also, it smells strongly of lavender which is not a scent I really want in my hair. I would recommend getting some plain old inexpensive coconut oil instead. – Funny you should say that…
I have a love/hate relationship with hair oil. I love it because it gives my hair the moisture it needs given that I colour it every 6-8 weeks. I hate it because it has a tendency to weigh down my hair and make my hair feel ‘thinner’.
Aveda’s New Dry Remedy Daily Moisturising Oil seems to have fixed that issue and it’s a total love relationship now. This oil does not weight down my hair or leaving it feeling stringy or greasy. My hair feels full and lush afterwards so from that perspective, it’s worth the cost.
As with anything Aveda, that price tag is rather off-putting. Thankfully I need just a few drops so I can prolong the shelf life.
I mix about 3 to 4 drops of this oil with Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener for that (almost) salon blow out look. The herbal scent may bother some people but I don’t mind it. Since I mix the oil with the glossing straightener, the scent is somewhat diluted.
