Aveda Damage Remedy Review and Giveaway [GIVEAWAY CLOSED]

Email |
By lesleykat · January 5, 2012

I've always been one of those people who likes to experiment with their hair. While it can yield pretty results, there is usually heat or chemicals involved. While I have sworn off color treatments for the last couple of years (that might change soon though. Stay tuned...) I have also not taken as much care of my hair as I should. Mostly due to the fact that haircuts and treatment in nyc are very expensive. While I have been able to find a couple of good drug store hair products, they are for the most part, unimpressive. I have even tried pretty high end products to find that some just dont justify their price. My hair stil has a mind of it's own and doesn't like to do what it's told.

A few weeks back I started using the Damage Remedy line from Aveda after receiving a treatment at their soho location. I've been using it ever since then and I must say I really enjoy the products. The shampoo is gentle but does a good job of striping out the old funk and gunk out. After all, I only wash but 2 times a week, 3 if I get sweaty or if it's summer. Out of the entire line I really like the Intensive Restructuring Treatment. It has a way of just releasing any tangles with very little effort. I usually have to use a wide-toothed comb and a little elbow grease to get tangles out. This stuff just releases them. It's pretty amazing. I like to use a big squirt of the Restructuring Conditioner with a small squirt of the Intensive Restructuring Treatment mixed in.

One of the greatest things about Aveda products are the amazing scents. They're very herbal and natural smelling not like other products that are purfumey or sweet smelling. I just can't stop sniffing my hair!

Overall I really like the Damage Remedy line and I'm going to use every last drop of it!. If the beast known as winter is taking its wrath out on your hair or you use a lot of heat on your hair this stuff will help nourish and pamper it to restore moisture.

I had a really bad experience last year getting my hair coloured by a stylist. The stylist left the colour on my hair too long and the ned of my hair were literally breaking off in my hands :( Since hten I have been trying out alot of different deep conditioning treatments to try to get my hair healthy again. I haven't tried any aveda productd before and would love to see if they'r work on my dry/damaged hair:)

NICE giveaway! I'm a huge fan of Aveda and would love to try this line of products. I have thyroid disease and have to treat my hair with extra TLC. I'm also trying to rid my home of any and all weird chemicals, which are probably what set me off in the first place. I already liked them on FB. If I could "love" them, I would. Thanks for hosting!

I've colored my own hair (mainly to cover emerging grey) for about 6 years now, and it's super-fine anyway. I used to be an Aveda devotee, but was lured away by other products. I think the Damage Control line will lure me to return to Aveda's amazing scents and performance.

My hair is very coarse and dry. Damage Remedy could really help my hair by repairing some of the breakage from the dryness.
