Review: Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment
Singapore’s tropical island climate recently went from tolerable to unbearable in the past few months. May and June are typically the hottest months of the year. However this year, the humidity level increase makes a daytime outing feel like stepping into a Japanese onsen (natural hot spring).
A couple of weeks ago, I started to notice my once healthy shiny hair turn dry and rough. The ends began to lighten and fray outward like straw, and combing my fingers through without a snag was a challenge.
Sheer desperation drove me to the Aveda’s Experience Centre – the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. And it was there I found Aveda’s Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment.
If there was ever a product that claims to rescue dry hair, this has got to be it.
The moment I squeezed a small dab of gel-like lotion treatment on the palms of my hands, and started combing the product through my hair with my fingers, the dry tangles almost instantly melted away. I kid you not.
The best part is….it doesn’t weight the hair down. I have fine, limp hair. With the treatment on, I walked around the store looking at other items thinking of giving this product time to settle and weigh my hair down. Five…ten minutes later, my hair looked the same, with the same body as before.
This is an intensive weekly treatment that uses the powers of natural plant oils and quinoa protein to restore hair health, shine and smoothness – working from the ‘inside out’. It is highly recommended for heat styling and chemically-treated hair, and hair with excessive environmental exposure.
I bought it. And I haven’t had any regrets since. To know more about this range of products, here’s an interesting video. It is Aveda’s photoshoot for the launch of the Damage Remedy line. It explains the philosophy behind this amazing line of products, how Damage Remedy works and what it is made of.
