I washed my hair on Friday with the complete Aveda Damage Remedy line, shampoo, treatment and then the conditioner. The shampoo actually felt good on my hair, it felt like it was cleaning it but not so harsh that my hair felt squeaky as if it had been stripped clean. The treatment felt like butter on my normally dry, course hair. The treatment is supposed to remain on your hair for roughly 5 minutes. I did not use a timer but I had on the radio and I kept the treatment on for the entire Aaron Hall song "I miss you" and about 1 additional minute. I estimate that it was on for about 6-7 minutes. I suspect the treatment is really the secret weapon behind this line, it felt like it was moisturizing my hair. The conditioner felt great also, then I rinsed everything out and hoped for the best. I was able to get through my hair easily as I prepared to roll it. I did not put anything on my hair, not coconut oil, no leave-in products- NOTHING, because I wanted to see how well this product would work on my hair. I plan on using this system for a while just to see if I feel like my hair benefits long term from this product.
Remember I air dry so no heat for me, I should also mention that I am 7 weeks post relaxer. The products certainly tamed my new growth, my hair was very soft and easy to comb through.
So what was my hair like the next day? Watch the video below to find out!
