Awesome Aveda = Hydrated Hair

The only good thing I can think of about dry winter weather is good hair days.  For someone like me whose hair instantly shrinks, shrivels and retracts at even the hint of humidity–summers can be tough–I treasure the dryness of winter.  I have more styling options and typically don't have to worry about nature cruely taking over and making my hair look completely different when I arrive anywhere from when I left home because of oppressive humidity.

One big help in keeping my curls hydrated as well as defined in this weather are Aveda products.  In short, they are my jam.


Aveda's Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is fantastic.  I first learned of it at a friend's apartment who swore by it so I decided to give it a try.  I use it as a leave in conditioner and it works so well at keeping my hair soft as well while enhances my natural curls, which drink it up.



The classic Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade is great for days when I work out, as it helps maintain my style by locking my curls in place, and the Brilliant Universal Styling Cream gives me a touch of non-greasy moisture in the mornings when I run a dab through my hair.



Black hair comes with its unique challenges and I'm so glad that Aveda is addressing them.  They've made my life that much easier because we all know that when your hair looks good, you feel good, becoming a better version of yourself.
