I am a bit on the fence about this oil. In my opinion it is pretty decent but not what it should be for the price. The first time I used it on my dry ends, I swear it made a difference and made them more soft and silky. However, after using it 3-4 more times since then, it hasn't really done as much. For the expensive price, I would expect a lot more from this oil. I know that essentially nothing magically transforms damaged ends, but most other oils I have used have been at least slightly better at damage control than this one. The plus is that it has a nice calming botanical/lavender smell and does not weigh my medium length, thin hair down at all even if I put a whole lot in. Not sure I would repurchase if I ran out at this point, mainly because of the price. Will keep using this though until I run out.

I exchanged an Aveda shampoo so I had a merchandise credit and the shop assistant recommended this oil for my dry/damaged, colour treated hair. It was exorbitantly priced at $29.00 USD for a dinky 1 oz. bottle, and it doesn't get any better from there. This product did absolutely nothing for my hair. My usual hair oil is Moroccanoil and although that product is also quite expensive, the bottle is large, comes with a pump and lasts for ages. I needed to use at least 10 drops of this oil (as opposed to the 1-2 drops recommended on the package) to work through my freshly washed mid-length hair. After blow drying, my hair looked incredibly parched and frazzled; it looked as though I had not used any conditioner or pre-styling treatment product. The texture of this oil is incredibly light so if you have very healthy hair and are just looking for a light finishing oil this may work for you, however, at the price and bottle size I think there are far better options.

I have naturally dry and chemically processed hair. Before my last trim I had really crunchy ends on my top layer - I used this oil in the hopes of moisturising the ends, as I'm trying to grow my hair - it made zero difference. I didn't notice any change in my hair at all except for the smell - it smells strongly of lavender, which I didn't like. The aveda oil doesn't make hair oily or weighed down, so that's a plus point, and there are no silicones so there was no feeling of build up. But it just did nothing to improve my hair, and at such an expensive price tag. I felt like I'd been ripped off, as I got better results from using a tiny amount of coconut oil. The only thing which helped my crunchy ends was to get them cut off. I continued using my usual styling products and now there is no problem, and seemingly no use for this oil.

This is the MOST WONDERFUL STUFF ON EARTH!!!!!! I was using silicone based serums and my hair was flat and greasy, and I'd use a clarifying shampoo to clean it out which dried my hair like crazy. That circle of misery was getting old, so I started trying oils. NONE of them worked except for this one....it is the HOLY GRAIL of hair products. It makes my highlighted, fine, damaged hair look and feel like silk (blonde hair is hardly ever shiny but this makes it glossy-gorgeous!). It washes out perfectly, never builds up, smells heavenly, and is my GO TO product! I can use it on damp hair, dry hair or whatever....you'll never need another hair styling/blow dry/smoothing product again. If Aveda ever discontinues this product I'm shaving my head.

I like this. It's in my gym bag so I alternate with the phyto subtil elixir. The aveda product smells much better but isn't as strong as the phyto. I put this in my super thick curly shoulder length hair after my leave in and before my styler. Three or four drops is all you need. I will keep it in my rotation. It's not cheap so that is a negative but I don't feel I've been ripped off. Overall a good product for thick dry hair.

I have a love/hate relationship with hair oils. I love it because it gives my hair the moisture it needs given that I colour it every 6-8 weeks. I hate it because it has a tendency to weigh down my hair and make my hair feel 'thinner'. Aveda's New Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil seems to have fixed that issue and it's a total love relationship now. This oil does not weight down my hair or leaving it feeling stringy or greasy. My hair feels full and lush afterwards so from that perspective, it's worth the cost. As with anything Aveda, that price tag is rather off putting. Thankfully I need just a few drops so I can prolong the shelf life. I mix about 3 to 4 drops of this oil with Aveda's Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener for that (almost) salon blow out look. The herbal scent may bother some people but I don't mind it. Since I mix the oil with the glossing straightener, the scent is somewhat diluted. I'm still curious about Redken's Diamond Oil to see how it compares to the Dry Remedy but for now, I'm happy with the Dry Remedy.

Aveda has to be the most addicting line of hair products. This stuff is AMAZING! As I don't wash my hair everyday, I put this in my hair between washes to keep the ends from getting dry. Smells beautifully, and when I wake up in the morning my hair doesn't have that grease residue in it.A must-have for anyone who doesn't wash their hair everyday, for a quick conditioning treatment.

I have long, thick, coloured hair which tends to get extremely frizzy particularly after washing. The ends are very dry. I heard some great things about this oil and bought it as an addition to my Aveda Dry Remedy Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask. I feel I need at least 10 drops to make it work with my hair. I do have very thick hair and for fine hair a couple of drops may be enough. In terms of combatting dryness I think it's an OK product. It does soak in and won't look oily unless you use too much. However, it didn't control any frizz for me. Made my dry ends a little softer and shinier. The effect didn't last very long. Not quite a miracle product. Still, it is a nice oil if you'd rather not use any silicones on your hair.

I really like this product. I put 4 drops of it in freshly washed hair and 4 sprays of another Aveda heat protectant spray and blow dry my hair. Afterwards if my hair feels dry, I like to put another drop or two on the ends and my hair feels soft. It is expensive but it lasts for so long that it's worth it. I can see this being oily for some hair types. My hair is coarse and curly and its also been colored.
