Active Ingredients

Chenopodium Quinoa Seed

This is a type of hydrolyzed quinoa protein that binds to the hair shaft and penetrates the cortex. Chenopodium Quinoa Seed works the same as other hydrolyzed proteins to patch damage and give the hair shine. To read more about this ingredient, click here.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol
Cosmetic scientists created this ingredient over 10 years ago by combining hydrolyzed wheat protein with silicone. Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol helps chronically dry hair retain moisture and reinforces cuticle layers that have been cracked during heat styling. This ingredient is also used in products by Curlisto, Ojon, and Fekkai.

Methyl Soyate
Methyl Soyate is a combination of soy oil and methanol. It is used in cosmetics as an emollient which means it makes the hair feel smooth and soft.

Product Instructions

Application is key. Use an amount about the size of a quarter for medium-length hair. Work it in your hands and apply it through damp hair.
To maximize results, focus on the most damaged areas and distribute the leave-in treatment evenly.
*Nicole’s Tip: Kinky hair almost always requires more than a quarter size amount. Focus on distributing the product evenly and be sure to wash your hands thoroughly when you’re done.

Nicole’s Recommendation

Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is worth a try. It should leave your hair soft, moisturized and shiny. The ingredients are highly effective but lightweight so you won’t have to sacrifice volume. You’ll need to use the product after every wash to keep getting the damage repairing benefits. That’s why the description and product name emphasize the word “daily”. Start out with a sample size. If you use the whole sample in one application this product may be out of budget at $7 an ounce. Aveda stores and salons will give you one free Damage Remedy Sample Pack when you bring in this coupon.

I use this Aveda product once a week! Im in looooveee with it, and wish I could lather it all over my head like lotion. But its pretty pricey. It really helps after a wash and right before a blow dry!

I have this and I LOVE it! I used some Miss Jessie's Baby Butter Cream that dried my hair out so badly I wanted to cry.

The Aveda Damage Remedy took care of it right away. This was after I had tried something else to get the condition back.

Love it!!! I brought both the Daily Damage Remedy conditioner and the heavy duty (30 dollar) intensive restructuring treatment! Both are the bomb and have took my hair from a dry, lifeless, broken mess to soft, bouncy, shiny...all with less breakage. Plus it smells like your in a spa getting your hurr did. So nice! :) I recommend this to naturals or whoever is suffering from dry damage hair.

I used the restructing treatment and had great results. However, since I found it to be prohibitively expensive, I now use the Giovanni Nutrifix and also obtain comparable results.
