Mack reviews Aveda's Dry Remedy Daily Moisturization Oil

Sometimes I feel like I'm in a human hamster wheel when it comes to looking after my hair.  I want long, healthy, luscious locks with a rich warm brown tone to add a subtle glimmer to my very dark hair.  However, constantly trying to maintain a hair colour different to my natural black hair and covering the grey that is now sprouting in abundance since hitting my mid-30's, has meant that I am colouring my hair every 4 weeks.  Plus, I need to use a number of heated devices everyday to keep my hair under some form of control.  All this has led to frizzier hair with sahara-desert dry ends.  Not quite the Cheryl Fernandez-Versini or Nicole Scherzinger hair look I was hoping for.

On my last London shopping spree, I was on a mission to find something non-greasy and effective which I could use every day in my hair to keep it sleeker, smoother and frizz-free and which is suitable for colour-treated hair. 

The lovely folk at Aveda in Libertys recommended their Dry Remedy Daily Moisturization Oil - a daily leave-in treatment made from buruti oil and which moisturises dry hair and ends by 41%.   It retails for £19.50 as at January 2015.

Verdict after a few days use: It smells amazing, like a dreamy, enchanting garden.  I work a few drops of the oil from the mid-lengths to the ends daily on my dry hair and also on my wet hair each time I wash it.  The oil does not need rinsing.  After using it daily for a week, I have already noticed that it smoothes out my brittle ends and helps me to maintain a frizz-free style throughout the day, without my hair looking greasy.   This lovely oil will join my list of must-haves.  I am hopeful that the condition of my hair will improve with continued use of the oil in conjunction with good conditioning products (my current favourites are Aveda's Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment Masque or the Aussie range). 

Have you tried the Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturization Oil?  If so what do you think?  If you use any other good products for dry hair, please do share your tips!
A quick note from May:  It sounds like you are on to a winner here, Mack, although the price made me wince a bit. If you're ever looking for a cheaper alternative, I recommend you try the Aussie Dual Personality Coloured Hair Protection and Shine Serum. I use it every day for helping out my dry ends and love it.
