Well, I certainly wish my hair did not respond so well to this. But my hair LOVES it and looks its best whenever I use the shampoo and conditioner from this line. Unfortunately, it is expensive, so it burns me up a bit when I go to repurchase. But seriously, cannot get these sort of results with anything from the drugstore. And I've tried it all!
I wash and heat style my hair daily, and need something that gives great moisture. I also live in a very dry climate with hard water and need to baby my hair due to that as well.
Took 1 point off for price. Other than that, very happy with the results. Moisture, bounce, and frizz reduction, without weigh-down. For reference, my hair is dryyyyyyy and splits easily, fine and silky but loads of hair, and below my shoulders.

Thick shampoo!! I bought the full sized version after trying the travel sized and liked it. It goes on nicely and rinses great. My issue is with the smell and the conditioner. I had to return the set because it seemed to have made my scalp quite greasy by the end of the day and weigh down my hair.

This is a comment for the shampoo and conditioner. I got both in an attempt to fix my hair--years of highlights and hard Texas water/sunlight really damaged it (to the point where my thick and fine hair was literally Split End City--stylist had to chop off inches in damage every haircut). First off I would say that YES I am super surprised that Aveda uses 'cones in their product since I thought that's contrary to their image. That having been said, my hair feels very soft and looks very shiny after using this shampoo and conditioner. I have fairly long hair and I get by using very little product--only a pencil-thin strip about an inch long works (add water and lather--it's enough!). I think using less also stops the build up. At a friend's recommendation I didn't use the conditioner on the roots and this helps keep the "heavy-oily" sheen away. I do find that buildup gathers at the very back of my head, about ear-level. Washing my hair with a generic, degreasing shampoo about once a week clears it up. To be honest I think it's nice that this product makes the bulk of my hair (the part falling halfway down my back) a little heavier. I have less frizz issues and it really does look healthy and shiny. Easy to comb and blow-dry as well. A little expensive but like I said, a little goes a long way. I've been using the small tubes for four weeks now and I'm not even halfway through--my guess is it will last a solid 2.5-3 months. Give it a shot and use it sparingly--you might be pleasantly surprised.

This line will always have a place in my shower!!! My hair is curly coarse and dry from over processing! The dry remedy shampoo and conditioner maintains my spirals in tip top shape! It is a bit pricey, but you only need a quarter size amount to treat shoulder length hair. I took off one lippy for the scent because I know not everyone can deal With it but i am-based on the results I see which outweigh the scent by a long shot. Def. HG and will repurchase.

I love this shampoo. It works for my long, thick, coarse and wavy dark hair. I don't do along of processing to my hair, just some permanent color to cover my odd grays. Regardless of processing, I've always had coarse dry hair. I can go days without washy and it never gets greasy. If your hair is similar I think you may love this shampoo too. Even my boyfriend loves it (he shaves his head bald, but says it moisturizes his scalp and keeps his skin feeling good). The smell is Aveda. I personally like it. I was suprised to read reviews that it doesn't lather. I once worked in the salon/spa industry as a sales rep for a distributor that carried lines like Joico, Pureology, Lakme, Davines, etc. And what I learned from the pro's there was that you should only wash your hair every second or third day. When you do wash, shampoo twice and that way you get a good lather and clean, and will need less conditioner after. I follow this method and always get good results. This shampoo moisturizes and nourishes my hair. It's worth the price in my opinion.

Dry Remedy is a very moisturizing shampoo. After using it for awhile I realized it was irritating my scalp.

I bought this shampoo when my hair went through a bad haircolor experience and subsequent overprocessing. The color was initially too dark and had to be lightened a couple times which led to some rather damaged hair. When I first started using this shampoo I loved it. I loved the smell, which some people don't, and the way it made my hair feel. It felt like my hair got a sorely needed drink of water. As my hair got longer and I continued to use the shampoo for about a year, I couldn't figure out why my hair felt heavy, flat, and limp yet still kind of dry on the ends. A new hairdresser I'm seeing clued me in on the fact that you need to use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a month to prevent build-up from this product.
I recently had my hair cut shorter, started using another shampoo and I got that lost volume back again. I stopped coloring my hair and it's in much better shape now. So I do recommend this shampoo, but not for permanent use. And make sure to use a clarifying shampoo at least once or twice a month depending on your hair.

One of the best shampoos I have used. A bit expensive but you get what you pay for. My hair was so damaged from hair-drying and straightening. I needed something that would fix that and got recommended this by my hairdresser. I now recommend this to most of my friends that get their hair coloured or constantly style their hair and are depressed that their hair looks like hay.
The natural ingredients do make for a bad smell but if you endure the smell, the results will speak for themself.
I have facial eczema and this had no affect on my skin.

HG shampoo... leaves my long hair hydrated, clean and bouncy with no split ends ever. The creamy texture took awhile getting used to as it lathers gently with a light scent that fades quickly. With daily use, the largest size lasts approx 3 months. I've repurchased this repeatedly and will continue to do so. Love it!

I have very coarse, wavy and dry hair and the dry remedy line works wonders for my hair. I your hair isn't that dry then this will be too much for you hair.
My husband even approves of spending that much on shampoo (aveda is twice as expensive in Europe) as he can actually tell the difference. He is a teacher and now even recommands his students to try Aveda shampoo when they complain about their hair. Do I need to say more?

After using Dry Remedy 'poo and cond. for a few weeks my hair felt like it was always dirty. If I washed in the morning by that evening it felt gross. I think this line has dimethicone in it, so that's probably why. I finished the shampoo off by cleaning my makeup brushes with it.
BTW if you are looking for an Aveda shampoo that is softening, Brilliant is good. If you wand to repair from damage, use Damage Remedy.

Meh. I got this as a sample from the Aveda store, and I'm not compelled to go back and purchase the full size bottle. It's a creamy-type shampoo that has that familiar Aveda smell. It lathers well and my hair was ready for conditioner after I was through. It didn't dry out my hair as much as other shampoos I've tried, but I suspect that this is what had my scalp itching and a little dry afterwards. Absolutely average and does not deserve my buying.

The most amazing hydrating shampoo, especially if you have coarse, dry, damaged, or thick hair. It leaves your hair supple and touchable. I have Asian hair and had extensions in my hair previously and this was the only shampoo I've tried which was recommended by my hair stylist that hydrated my hair. Other shampoos/conditioners I used on my extensions were nearly not moisturizing enough. The floral aroma is very nice. The only con is that's it's pricey.

I'm pretty conflicted on whether I'd purchase this again because for the price, I expected more... more vitality to my hair, more shine...something to justify the price. I try to stay cone free, but this does contain them. It does add lots of moisture to my dry wavy hair, and softness, too, but I think all the conditioning ingredients (and no, this is not without some serious chemicals) do build up and I can only use this a few times a week along w/the conditioner. My stylist at the Aveda salon annoys me continually by asking me whether I'm using Aveda or not, in a way that seems as though she feels all of my hair issues are due to the fact that I do not use Aveda only. I use Jessicurl, Giovanni, and Abba sometimes and think maybe some of those are better...but my hair is very capricious and I tend to change it up based on how it's behaving (or not). I do love my Aveda color, though, and have been getting it colored there for a couple of years~and I do like the company~it's just not the end all, be all my stylist thinks it is.

This product was 24 dollars and is ridiculous. I was in the store and looking through their ingredients on all their products and was shocked. For a company who claims to be pure and natural they sure have alot of drying chemicals in their products. It was disgusting really. Methylclorinazaone or however u spell it is in virtually all their shampoos. I'm allergic to that ingredient. It desensitizes the skin, and whole boat load of other things including giving you dry itchy weird patches on ur skin. This one only had methosulfate which is still drying but I decided to try it. It was incredibly drying after 3 uses. I even paired it with some good conditioners I own. This product... no this brand is bad news and a waste of money. Hey go try biolage ultra hydrating shampoo its way better fragranced and isn't drying oh and its way cheaper. If you are looking for more "pure" products go to a natural store like whole foods. Seriously what are companies like this thinking? By putting some natural oils in a product and some drying agents in it doesn't make it a good product or a natural or a pure one. This crap is for people who don't read labels. Do your research ladies you will be so much happier in the end.

My stylist told me this was the product that Aveda launched to replace Sap Moss. I did not find it nearly as moisterizing and it was double the price. I only purchsed it once. :(
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
i've always been a huge aveda fan and have used a wide range of their shampoos and conditioners over the years. like several of the previous reviewers here, i, too, loved aveda's SAP MOSS shampoo and conditioners as they moisturized my hair and made it feel incredibly thick and soft.
i have very short asian hair that gets oily if i don't wash it every day. a couple of years ago my aveda stylist used the dry remedy on my hair when it was very long and prone to dryness (especially in the winter). i LOVED it then, and it still does the job now.
i'm surprised to see so many reviews on DRY REMEDY complaining about the lack of suds and lather that is produced. i find this shampoo to be sudsier than virtually any other shampoo that i've used before, which i really adore. i use a tiny bit on my short hair and it suds up beautifully and feels great.
i love how ALL aveda products smell and they all smell rather similar to me so i'm pleased with the scent of the DRY REMEDY as well.
my only real gripe about the shampoo is the cost - but all of aveda's products are rather pricey in my opinion. still - i think this shampoo is worth it and does the job... have yet to find a comparable drug store brand!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I haven't bought any Aveda products since they stopped Sap Moss as I didn't think anything would compare. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find this works just as well on my dry, over-processed hair.
I don't even really need to use the conditioner as the shampoo leaves my hair soft and tangle free on it's own.
I will buy this again, next time my hair needs some serious TLC

First and foremost, I'd like to mourn over the death of Sap Moss shampoo. Sap Moss, you were kind to my fine and thin hair. You cleaned my oily roots and sprung the strands to life. Anything that tried to weigh them down were zapped by you. You left my hair happy and clean and not dry. Sap Moss, your replacement, Dry Remedy, left my roots all thick, matty and icky feeling no matter how much I rinsed. Dry Remedy, you cost more than your predecessor and you've been shamelessly called the 'replacement' to Sap Moss. Not so. Not at all so. For me, at least. Dry Remedy, I will be returning you right back to the Aveda store I bought you from. Don't you cry because I'm going to try some samples of the other shampoos.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
As with all Aveda products, this is really expensive.
I always used this shampoo in conjunction with the partner conditioner and the end result was no better for it than if I used a supermarket brand.
The shampoo itself does seem to leaver my hair softer than a normal shampoo would, but after applying the conditioner, and then drying my hair, it's impossible to tell the difference between the Aveda system and a far cheaper equivalent.
