That’s what I found out when I used Aveda’s new Dry Remedy Oil. It comes in a tiny bottle (tiny compared to most of the serums that I use) and it turns out that I only need to use a few drops on my medium-length hair. I apply 4 drops per side, and let the hair either air dry or blow dry it. As I apply it, the oil soaks into the hair quickly and helps define curls and get rid of frizziness.
At first, I was inclined to put more product into my hair – either a thicker serum, or some mousse, maybe a thickening cream.
But then I left it… and I’m so glad I did, because a tiny bit of this oil goes a long way and I’ve decided that I actually don’t need to add anything to it. I even found that it was easier to blow-dry my hair when I used this oil, and it dried a lot more quickly than if I had used my regular blow-dry gel in it. I still used the L’Oreal Elnette Style Straight spray in it, and the combination of both products helped my hair get straight quickly and stay straight.
This is also a great product if you’re trying to use less silicones in your hair, because it’s formulated without the use of those ‘cones (which can cause a lot of build-up in your hair).
The oil is 99.9% natural, and has been shown to instantly moisturize hair by 41%.
Of course, as with all Aveda products, this oil smells absolutely amazing. The cedarwood smell lasts and lasts, and I love getting a whiff of it once in a while. It’s completely different from most other scented hair-care products.
