I have 62 year old hair that is very curly, fine and frizzy in humidity. Although I only have it hi-lighted every 8ish weeks and never blow dry or otherwise abuse it, the ends always look frizzy and damaged. My stylist gave me a sample of Aveda Damage Remedy shampoo. I've been using it for a month and it has definitely improved my hair. Most importantly, my super fine hair is not weighed down with all of the moisturizing this shampoo adds to my ends. Like all of the natural Aveda products, it does smell a bit odd and packaging is plain but eco friendly. That said, I will be sticking with this product. $26 on Amazon.

This shampoo is cream colored and has a viscus consistency. I feel like it is infused with a ton of nutrients for my hair and it is definitely gentle to my damaged hair. I actually don't think I need to use a conditioner because on top of not stripping away the natural oil in my hair, it also nourishes my hair and leaving my hair soft.
The only problem I have with this shampoo is that I have oily roots and this leaves my hair oily about 12-15 hours after washing. I usually wash my hair at night and it would be oily by noon. And because of all the nourishment, my hair doesn't get that clean feel after rinsing.
I will not be purchasing this product again because I need a stronger shampoo that will clean my roots. I usually use regular shampoo and just apply it on my roots. I would let the restof my hair washed when I rise off the shampoo on my roots. It usually works and is gentle on my hair because it isn't applied directly on the damaged parts of my hair.
If you have oily hair, do not buy this product. Try Aveda's shampure shampoo instead.

Several years ago I had a Japanese hair straigthening incident that completely fried my hair. This shampoo along with the matching condtitioner and the Intensive Restructuring Treatment saved my hair. I recently had a BKT and then had highlights done about a month later, so I've got some damage. I'm using this shampoo once again with the Brilliant conditioner, great combo for my hair. It's very gentle, doesn't foam very much or strip hair. Also doesn't leave hair tangled after washing which is a big deal for me. A little more pricey at $24 for 8.5 fl. oz. but I don't need to use it everyday and it will last several months.

I bought the shampoo and conditioner for about $99 which was quite expensive but one of the hairdressers raved about how it made her hair loss from extreme hair dying and damage, repair from using these products.
I don't think this helped hair growth or made my hair that much healthier.
It however smelled lovely and has made my hair colour stay a lot longer then usual as well as making the colour look far more vibrant which is probably the only good thing!

I really like this product. My hair is very long (about 24+ inches or to my waist), coarse, curly, and dry. (I am a woman of colour.) Even though this shampoo *is* expensive, it's one of the best I've ever used. (It's been difficult for me to find *any* hair products that work well with my hair.) I use it sparingly: once or twice (at the most) a week. I also focus almost exclusively on my scalp. The bottle lasts me a long time. I find that it helps to moisturize and protect my hair. Recommended!

I like this shampoo, 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 have the liter size with the pump. I have both shampoo and condition and also the deep treatment. I love this stuff. It doesn't lather but it really helps my hair. The deep treatment is amazing. I love that it's natural. It's very expensive though. It last a very long time but I don't use it every day and I switch up my shampoo/conditioners every once in a while to make it last longer.

This line was my go-to before I went silicone-free. Occasionally I miss the amazing slip, smoothness, boinging coils, and smell of this product. If it weren't so pricey, I'd probably have kept on using it. Eventually I couldn't get moisture back into my ends which suffered from the silicone buildup most. *shrugs But if you like silicones, this stuff is amazing!

i have normal to fine hair and its not very thick, its average and has a slight wave.ive been trying to grow my hair out long and the ends are starting to be dry and somehow i have breakage as well. i bought this and the conditioner that went along with it and had really high hopes since the reviews on the website were awesome...this wasnt what i was expecting at all. i didnt do anything, in fact, the more i used it, the more coarse my hair became! i was like, maybe the more i used it the more it would help, like one of those things that you see results later..but nope. i went bk to the salon and they explained to me that this is not designed to moisturize or hydrate, its supposed to just strengthen the hair. wont be using it anymore. FAIL!

I like this shampoo a lot. Its a good one to use if you've been doing a lot of styling or using drying products on your hair. My hair turns out very soft.
