I just wanted a write a quick post (since I am crazy busy packing for India) about this new found hair care line. And by new I mean I have tried it since March and LOVE it. It’s the Macadamia Natural Oil range (but the products have Argan Oils in it as well). So far I have used the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Mask and the Macadamia Oil Healing Oil Treatment
I use the Deep Repair Masque once a week… sometimes twice. The Healing Oil treatment I use almost every time I wash my hair and sometimes to the ends if they are feeling too dry. Both products are in the $20 range. I have used a little less than half the bottle of oil and very little of the masque – which makes me believe these products will last me a while.
The masque is supposed to have reconstructive properties and is supposed to be left on wet hair for about 7 minutes. So I usually shampoo my hair and use the masque as a deep conditioner. I am always surprised about how light my hair feels after washing. I have previously used deep conditioning treatments that feel very heavy… like you need to re-shampoo the next day. This is not one of those. This is effective yet light. And I have not cut my hair in a LONG time and I think this product has helped me keep split ends at bay.
The healing oil has an interesting smell – hehe… and its also bright pink in color. I usually use a pump for my hair since it is long. I start from the ends of wet hair and work upwards. I leave it on for 30 ish minutes before blow-drying my hair. Although I don’t have colored hair, I’d like to point out the oil boasts of UV protection – so all you people with highlights etc. can prolong your color using this product.
After 4 months of use I can definitely say these products have helped keep my hair healthy, and to a certain extent improve it. I think my ends tend to get really worn out with hair straightening and curling that I do at least once a week. Plus, I blow dry every time my hair is wet. So, I really do put my hair through a lot but these products have helped me a lot. These products are rich in fatty acid containing oils (if anyone is wondering about how these products work).
