Hair Care | AVEDA Dry Remedy Range

There is something I continuously steer away from when it comes to hair care, it is the word ‘dry’ and ‘moisturising’. I have been one of those sceptical kind, due to the fact that my hair has its own personality. My hair is flat, volume-less, oil up fast in the roots and I’m just not too sure what shampoo to use all the time. And it has colour running through it.

Come along this reformulated range from Aveda.

Aveda Dry Remedy range - lifestyle

I’ve heard of Aveda hair care range but I have so far only walked passed it from the outside of Oscar Oscar hair salon. I have not tried it so I was keen to see how this range perform.

On a quest for super-hydrated hair, Aveda, The Art and Science of Pure Flower and Plant Essences, sought inspiration from the moisture-rich forests of Brazil, where a serious solution for parched, brittle strands exists, called buriti oil.

What it is – is a richly moisturising ingredient harvested from the fruit of the Moriche Palm – aka “Tree of Life” – which flourishes in Brazil’s wettest areas. Buriti oil is powerfully hydrating and the key ingredient in this range.

Any of you has stepped in to Mecca Cosmetica or Mecca Maxima recently? I just did today and found these babies that were lurking from the display stand, calling out my name. I swatched and ooh and aah and walked away thinking about them.

Any of the new collection has caught your attention?

Hi

A voice within me says “You’re f***ed
Yet a part of me keeps going
moving…
Strength.

The words swirl in my head
Like clouds over a hill
I wish I was a wildhorse instead
Running with the wind…

I’ve made many mistakes in the past
How stupid to think about them now
I was lost and found
Lost and found all over again

This year is the turning point
I can feel it
But how…
’How’ is the key word.

It has always been a carousel ride
A never ending ride
I move forward, you pulled me back
Now I battle, with the demons on my back
