I'm a hairdresser and I used to work in an aveda salon. This is the superstar of the product line. I used it on every single client! It works great in fine straight hair (it is very light) or in thick curly hair as a curl balm. It also has heat protection for thermal styling. Most aveda products are not worth the $$$, but this one is.

Love this product! I stopped using it for a while and now I am back and notice a big difference in my ends. It helps stop breakage and seals my end without weighing my hair down. I only use a small amount and don't use it on my roots. I just wish they made a bigger tube and it was not so pricey. I will never switch from this one again!!!

I bought this along with the intensive masque...I'd gotten the samples and found them great initially.
But after awhile i just found it wasn't helping my hair AT ALL. It's full of silicones and did nothing for my hair in the long term. It's expensive for what you get, and I found myself using loads of it, but it never really felt like it was sinking in (that would be because my hair was still coated in all the silicones from the previous times i'd used it)
It's just not worth the money. I've since switched to the lush products and I'm finding them alot better. My hair is in way better condition and feels and looks so much healthier (again, i think this is down to the lush products being silicone free)

Well, here's a tip. I didn't realize that this is a leave in product. I used it as a wash out conditioner and it worked GREAT. I have been looking for something since Aveda discontinued Curresence. If you have fine hair, it might work for you too.

This product works amazingly well at detangling my extremely knotty hair after shower, when it's still wet and I keep buying it for that purpose. It makes hair more manageable and unlike other products that I had tried, it doesn't seem to create any buildup. It also adds a bit of shine and moisture to the hair and like many Aveda products, has that pleasant, non synthetic smell.

Detangles, strengthens, + heat protects! I'm in love!! My hair is slow growing and by using this my hair has grown so much cause it stops the breakage. I'll use this stuff forever!!

I'm using this as a sample right now, but it's won me over. I love how soft it leaves my hair (and hands!). I have wavy hair and i usually put a tiny amount in all my hair, then a curling creme or mousse. My hair looks amazing and healthy. When I run out of this, and if i have enough money lol, I'll definitely try and buy the full-sized product.

I like this line, but don't like it enough to spend money on it. I'm currently using samples of the shampoo, conditioner, and treatment from the Damage Remedy line after seeing an ad for it in Vogue. I like that it's barely scented (probably from the ingredients) and it has a thick gel-like texture. However, I don't believe that it can truly "repair" split ends - at most it probably strengthens your hair shaft to prevent future damage, and if that's what you're looking for, you'll probably get better results from eating better and taking vitamins or biotin. That said, there are other hair care items from other natural plant-derived lines that are more affordable and get the job done just as well as this Aveda line (EO, Avalon Organics to name a few - I also like Phyto, which is at about the same pricepoint as Aveda). Not to say that the Damage Remedy line isn't good, it's just that there are cheaper alternatives out there and I didn't find this to be particularly strengthening or repairing for my hair. For reference I have fine, slightly wavy, non-color treated hair.

I beat the crap out of my hair last summer with multiple bleachings. It was a ratty mess. My stylist suggested this, and man, it works! I would wash my hair at night, then put this in after towel drying, and then leave it on overnight. It restored it to something convincingly healthy, shiney, strong, and especially SOFT. What a surprise.
After it started looking so much better and I cut off a lot of the damage, I use this sparingly now, maybe once I week. I have curly hair, so to use this too often on healthy hair, as with any keratin/protein treatment, it will start to straighten you hair out.

This product has the traditional Aveda scent but, that's about all. I have curly shoulder length dry hair. I color it and spend a good deal of time outside. I have tried this product on a number of occasions and it just leaves my hair feeling rough. I like the smooth infusion line from Aveda much better for smooth and soft "in control hair".

Whilst I do think it is rather expensive I really do like this product. My hair tends to get very dry at the ends and breaks easily.. especially when combing when wet. This is perfect to add to damp hair as a leave in treatment and is great for a detangler. My hair is left soft and smooth and can really see a difference with continued use.

I don't know. My hair was drying out from wearing it curly all the time and being in the sun and water this summer so I thought I would use this to give my hair a boost. I wanted to like it, but it didn't do anything for me. The regular conditioner works better for me. There are other treatments that are a better value that work well.

I purchased this product at the suggestion of my stylist. While a bit pricy, a little does go a long way. I use only on the most damaged areas of my hair (the sides in the front, and the ends, primarily). It really does help a lot. It addresses the frizz factor and I'm a HUGE fan.
This was the first product in the damage remedy line I tried. I've since purchased the shampoo and conditioner and deep conditioner. My hair is super manageable when I use the line. :) I like to mix up the products I use, but this is a fave to be sure.

I do love this product, but I find it very hard to control it and get the right amount for my fine, easily weighed down hair. The first couple of times I used too much and my hair ended up flat, a bit greasy and very, very soft (too soft is not good in my case!). Now I use a tiny drop, like the size of a pea, on my ends only and it works fine - though I would like to be able to apply it further up the shaft to make sure that my lengths are fully protected from blow drying. But I do love the herbal smell and how well defined and healthy my ends look.
EDIT: I'm giving this it's last lippie now. I stopped washing and styling my hair every day, and I think using this only every other day gives my way better results. It no longer weighs my hair down or makes it look greasy, and I find it easier to control the amount. I'm gonna buy this again.

I use this as a leave in conditioner after I shower but before I blow dry and style my hair. A little goes a long way. I have very long hair and use only a dime sized amount each day, so one tube lasts 4-6 months for me (which helps ease the blow of paying 28 dollars for a small tube). I comb it in with my fingers and try to concentrate it at the tips to help prevent split ends. I can use it at my roots and on my bangs though and they wont get greasy which is a concern of mine when using other leave in products and even my regular in shower conditioner. It has a nice smell to it as well just like other Aveda products.

I have very thick and curly hair. I use this prior to the Be Curly Curl Enhancer and I find it gives my hair a bit more shine and I noticed a difference in softness after a week or two.
I think this may be too heavy for thinner hair, especially in summer. But if you have thicker hair, and/or curly hair, I would suggest you try it!

Didnt know what to expect from this product, therefore there wasnt that big of a let down when i realized that this product didnt work. I had hair that was very long and fine and i had to use more than the suggested amount. The formula is light, but it still felt like there was a film of 'something' weighing down and covering my hair. I would run my finger through my product applied hair and the hair would feel 'oily' slick. Not too pleasant of a feeling. I will not be repurchasing.

Disappointing. I have thick, coarse, curly hair with ends that seem to stay dry no matter how many times I get them trimmed. I was really excited to use this leave-in conditioner but the product is watery and didn't noticeably moisturize my hair. A quarter-sized dollop was barely enough for half my hair, and even when I concentrated my ends there was still no difference. Honestly using Be Curly Curl Enhancer moisturizes more than this. I used this religiously after the Damage Remedy shampoo and conditioner for about two weeks, I didn't see any repair and I wouldn't trust its claim that it protects hair against heat. But I'm going to try the hair treatment in the Damage Remedy line, hopefully it gives better results. Oh, and the smell is alright.

Tried the sample of this from Aveda store. The combo of all three Damage Remedy products was too much for my fine, thin hair. That said, I love this Daily Hair Repair. I use a pea size amount on the bottom half of my hair before I blowdry; mainly ends. My ends look healthy, full, and static-free. I still use the Kerastase Nectar Thermique as well, but this Aveda one feels lighter. I will alternate depending on how my hair feels.

I paid $26 for this, and it doesn't seem to do anything. I've used it daily for months. It smells nice and defrizzes my hair slightly, but my hair does not seem any healthier. I've had better results with much cheaper products.
