Review: Macadamia Oil

Absolutely months and months ago in the February JolieBox I received a sample sachet of the Macademia Oil Deep Repair Masque.

For some reason I rarely use hair products even though I own loads of them and so this has taken me a while to get around to using.

I have however had really dry hair that’s felt really brittle and just generally not nice, so I routed around in my collection to find it and test it out.

Firstly, as I’ve had this for so long I only have the one photo which is pretty lame so I apologise for that. I thought I had more and used it and threw it out so I’ll try not to babble on too much!

I’d heard great things about this sachet, not just about the contents but that fact that the sachet was so big it allowed you to have multiple applications of the product, which is always lovely as using something once can be misleading.

I managed to get 2 applications out of this as I have really long hair and slapped in on all over my head.

I could have got 3 if say, I’d concentrated it on the ends which is what I would normally have done if my hair hadn’t felt so dire.

The other thing I’d heard was that it was a fabulous product that really worked.

Having never tried Argan oil or Moroccan oil before I had nothing to compare it to aside from other hair masks, and I have to say this is one of the best ones I’ve ever tried.

The mask felt really nice on my hair to being with, not too runny it ran onto my face but easy enough to spread around my entire head covering all of my hair. I’ve no idea how long I left it for but I showered and scrubbed etc in the shower meaning it was on for around 10 minutes.

My hair instantly felt softer and smoother after washing it out and after drying with my hair dryer as normal it felt in much better condition. I used the other half of the sachet 5 days later in an attempt to improve the condition further and keep the softness there and it worked a treat!

I would buy this in a heartbeat, especially as Cheap Smells have the entire range, with a huge 500ml pot of this retailing at £24 instead of the RRP of £36, bargain!

If this sounds a lot to you then let me explain, the sachet was 30ml meaning 15ml for each application for longer hair.

The 500ml tub contains 33 full applications working out at 72p each.

Pretty hard to say no to that isn’t it??

I’m in love!

When L told me she had this in her joliebox I was so envious. I adore the Macadamia products. My hair dresser introduced me to the range probably two and half to three years ago, the salon used this mask as a treatment. I also used to add this on when I went there and pick up this sachets.

It leaves your hair feeling so soft, manageable and really helps improve the condition. Unlike L I’m a hair mask  lover. I’ve tried my fair share. I’m currently using the Lee Stafford for hair that doesn’t grow treatment (not entirely convinced it works but can’t stop using it now I’ve started in case it does)

This product also smells amazing. I should add her I’m blonde and have never had problems with it and my hair dresser used it on me, as I did read in some posts people had been told it’s not suitable for blonde hair.

The Macadamia healing oil treatment is amazing as well. Its on cheap smells for £13.68. Which is such a bargain. This bottle is 125ml and lasted me 6 months when I had it. It is by fair the best oil I have tried. Recently I’ve been trying cheaper versions to try and save myself  money and they aren’t as good. While L has found it as this bargain price I’ll be ordering. It’ll work out at just £2.50 a month. Bargain.

Have you tried the Macadamia Range? I love it!!

Love M
