Chances are you don’t forget to slather on the moisturizer come winter, but what about your hair? It’s in need of some TLC, too.
Enter Aveda new concept: an in-salon Damage Remedy treatment (including a scalp and hand massage) featuring their new range of Damage Remedy Products. The plant-based brand whipped up a four-piece range including Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo, Restructuring Conditioner, Intensive Restructuring Treatment and Daily Hair Repair (all of which you can use at home, too), all of which use jojoba, castor oil and meadowfoam seed oils to smooth the surface of the cuticle. Post-treatment, our sorely-in-need-of-a trim locks looked smoother, more lustrous and best: polished—a feat usually only accomplished by a substantial trim.
The system’s designed to restructure hair weakened by chemical processes, heat styling, wind ravaging and the inevitable sun damage that comes after a summer at the beach. According to a clinical tensile test, the Daily Hair Repair alone instantly repairs damaged hair by 26%.
After a straight month of recklessly styling our hair into holiday-party-ready looks and settling into our post-holiday winter wrath, our hair was achieving an Axl Rose level of limp raggedness. A week’s worth of cleansing sessions with different combinations of the products has restored our mane to its pre-holiday self. As a bonus, the products’ never-saccharine, herbal scent will make even the least eco-concerned consumer feel virtuous.
The Damage Remedy product line is available now at aveda.com. (Also! If you enter DAMAGE11 at checkout you’ll get free shipping on any order that includes a Damage product through January 31.)
