aveda dry oil ingredients

My Experience with Aveda Dry Remedy Dry Moisturizing Oil:
I think if there was one brand that was screaming right on my face during Australia trip, it was Aveda. I considered it not cool to return to India without buying something from the brand. Lol! So I picked up two products from Aveda. One of them is this Dry Remedy Dry Moisturizing Oil.

It comes in this little dark glass bottle. Although it is a 30 ml product (the same amount as your standard foundation bottle), but I looove how compact they have made the packaging. It makes it so much easier to carry it around. There is also a stopper on the bottle that helps control the amount of product you want to use.

I have never used a dry oil before so this was something new to me. It’s actually looks and feels like your regular oil but there are some ingredients in this oil that helps it to penetrate the hair follicles and does not make your hair ‘oily’. It had 99% natural ingredients, which gets a full mark of approval in my book. I took time to really understand how this oil works.

You can use it on towel-dried damp hair and then blow dry/style your hair. On days when the ends of your hair are looking dry, just use a few drops. You can also use it as an overnight hair moisturizing product. Aveda especially recommends it for people who have curly hair. You can also use just a drop of it to tame your flyaways.

I have medium length hair that end up getting dry on most days. I just use 1-2 drops of it on my hair and it does such a wonderful job at leaving the dry ends of my hair looking nourished and moisturised. It adds a bit of shine but nothing compared to a serum that is silicone based.  This is a very natural product and you can’t compare it to a serum that is silicone based. When you first apply it, you can actually see the oil on the strands of your hair. Don’t panic. Give it a minute or a two, the oil would penetrate/evaporate leaving your hair looking and feeling smooth. And 1-2 drops are enough for medium length hair.

Initially I used 3-4 drops and that left my hair looking greasy because that was too much. So depending on your hair type/length, you would have to work your way around it to see how much you need it. If you style your hair regularly or have damaged ends because of colouring, I would really suggest this oil to you.

It is as natural as you can get with oil without feeling that oily feeling that comes with using oil. It is also free of silicones. I can’t really pin point what it exactly smells of. To me it smells a bit basil(y) but in a nicer way. The scent is not strong and it fades away in a while so nothing to worry about.

The only drawback I’d say is that if you end up using too much of it post styling your hair, this would totally ruin it for you. It would weigh down your hair and then there is no going back. So I’d say start with just a drop and go forward from there. Learnt it the hard way. 😛

Overall, it is going to be a staple in my hair care until the very last drop of it. And I’d definitely repurchase it at any given chance. Anything natural for my hair is a big thumbs up and this has totally replaced any serum in my hair care routine. 🙂 Love it.

  1. It’s the first time that I’m reading about a “dry oil”. I rarely oil my hair so I’ve not used many of them. This one looks quite nice!! Great review. 🙂
