Not good for my fine, blonde, bleached hair. Snaps it right off and it smells terrible. Every Aveda product has been a complete dud for me and I've tried most of them, having worked at a place that sold the Aveda line. I'd rather use drugstore shampoo.

This is my favourite shampoo at the moment and I have been using it for a couple of years now. It is expensive, but in my opinion also worth it as I can see the difference it makes to my hair. It is also sulphate free and gentle on my relaxed Afro hair. Really helps to keep my hair strong and healthy. As this is a Protein shampoo so I only use this for every other wash and alternate this with either a clarifying or moisturising shampoo.

My hair is very picky about shampoos, especially as I professionally colour it every 8-10 weeks and my scalp doesn't like anything with sulfates. Talk about a tall order to fill. I got this shampoo a while back and decided to start using it as I'm on a 'use up my stash' kick. I should have never bought this shampoo. It's okay but definitely not worth the price tag. It dries out my scalp somewhat so I can't use it too often and my hair feels a bit parched too. If you have non chemically treated hair and a somewhat oily scalp, you may like this shampoo. A big miss from Aveda.

When I was in college a few years ago, I worked as a Receptionist at an Aveda salon. I received a generous discount and had a great fill of products in my beauty supply! But after leaving the job, I couldn't bring myself to buy the products at full price. So instead, I've been using other salon brands at lower cost. But recently, I have missed the shampoo so much that I decided to finally go back. Although Damage Remedy is a little pricey (1 liter it's $84), this product is well worth it for many reasons!When I use this shampoo, I RARELY need to use conditioner afterward because it leaves my hair so soft and healthy on it's own. (I have normal hair, on the thicker side, and it can get frizzy). The smell is very pleasant and just makes me feel so good in the shower. The scent for me is therapeutic. :) You don't need to use much; a little goes a long way, so it will last for awhile. A liter typically lasts me about 5 months and I wash my hair every 2-3 days. I live in the Midwest, so for me it's important during winter to not only moisturize my skin, but use a great shampoo to keep my hair healthy and soft too. I highly recommend this shampoo to anyone who has chemically treated hair, or wants healthy locks in general. Will stick with this product!

I'm mixed raced with thick loose wavy hair. I use Damage Remedy Shampoo twice a week and alternate between Palmers Protein Deep Conditioning Pack And Olive Oil Moisturizing Deep Conditioning Pack each time. This shampoo is lovely and does wonders for my hair. I don't shed as much anymore and I don't have to trim my hair every month. Hair is longer, stronger and shinier than ever. I do this route routine in conjunction with the Aveda Invati Scalp Revitalizer. I don't do the Damage Remedy Conditioner because I find that I have to use a lot of it to cover my hair from beginning to end and it will finish long before the Shampoo. I get my money's worth in just shampoo and the conditioning packs, which are like whipped pudding and they go a long way. Hair looks amazingly healthy afterward. I just bought the larger bottle in the shampoo because I just can't be without it. Thank you Aveda. UPDATE* 2/8/15 I can't find any spit ends! I will use this shampoo forever.

I have highlighted/colour-treated long Asian hair, and was finding that my hair was knotting up over time, so I started using the Daily Repair detangler which worked so well I invested in the Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo and Conditioner. I liked the way it lathered up and seemed to be more conditioning that the Aveda Scalp Remedy that I usually use. BUT it has caused my skin to break out in milia all along my forehead and temples, basically where my hair is in regular contact with my skin. I'd been using it for 4 months and initially thought the milia was due to the summer or exercising, but was still breaking out when the weather turned colder, and I stopped getting sweaty due to injury. My regular beautician had pointed out the milia occurring, which was about a 3-4 weeks after I started using it.Reading the ingredients, it contains dimethicone which is silicone and can clog pores (not good). I am annoyed that this is sold as "natural" when it isn't. I haven't used any different skin products either. I've stopped using the Damage Remedy duo 2 weeks ago and already my skin is clearing up.

I have fine, wavy hair that was very damaged from highlighting and heat styling. It had turned flat, broke very easily and was about as bad as I'd ever seen it. Other shampoos and treatments that had helped when I had just little damage did almost nothing. I'd always been wary of trying Aveda because of the high price tag, but took the plunge on the Damage Therapy Restructuring Shampoo due to the good reviews I'd read online and my sheer desperation. I bought the shampoo with the Daily Restucturing Therapy. After one use, my hair looked so much healthier! The damage isn't entirely gone, of course -- that will only happen once the ratty ends are cut out. However, my hair is much softer, more manageable and attractive again -- without being weighed down. Just wish it weren't so expensive!

Did nothing for my dry, heat damaged hair. Made it rough and easy to break. Will not repurchase.

Geez, I was certain I had written a review of this earlier. I should be censured for not having done so, because it is certainly my civic duty to warn people about this shampoo. I had just changed salons/stylists and started going to an Aveda salon, which I had never used before. My previous stylist never listened to my requests on color, and simply colored my hair the exact same color of blonde every time, no matter what I asked for. And it wasn't even the color I ever wanted. My first visit to the new Aveda salon, the stylist used bleach to try to lighten and even out my blonde, and my hair was left with a ton of damage and breakage. A ton. She sent me home with this shampoo & the coordinating conditioner. This was before I knew very much about shampoo ingredients. I figured she intended me to use these products daily, and that because they said "damage repair" that they were going to hydrate and nourish my sad, damaged hair. Wrong!! They are loaded with protein, which, using occasionally on damaged hair is fine...using daily spells disaster. My hair was breaking & falling out so badly, I thought I would need to see a doctor. I was at a loss, until I started researching. I stopped using both products immediately. I realize that mis-using these products is not the product's fault. However, I kept the shampoo and conditioner around and tried them again, much later (I also never bleached my hair again). They still leave my hair dry and a tangly mess. And there's definitely more hair coming out than with my usual products. I give them 2 lippies instead of 1, only because a large part of the failure here was operator error (me) and because I'm sure the natural ingredients in these products helps someone, even if it's not me. I still do think that they should indicate on the bottles that these products are intended as treatments and not as a daily-use shampoo & conditioner due to the protein content.
