What Laura Loves: Macadamia Natural Oil for hair
I think I have found my new essential product! In its unassuming little bottle, the Macadamia hair treatment oil doesn’t look much, but it makes big claims, promising to reduce hair drying time by up to 60% (yeah right, I thought!) as well as moisturising, conditioning, and locking in my hair colour for longer. I saw this as a challenge!…
I washed and towel dried my hair, rubbed a small amount of the oil into my hands, and applied it to my hair. The oil is thick, so it is easy to pour the right amount, and it smells divine.
My hair is fairly short, but it dried noticeable more quickly with the treatment oil, so for someone with long hair this would be a real time saver (although you would need a bigger bottle of oil). My hair also felt really soft, but wasn’t so soft that I couldn’t do anything with it, and it seemed to be in better condition after being dried and straightened than usual, and didn’t feel at all greasy or weighed down, which I was a bit worried it might. The instructions say you can put a little on your hair when you are dying it to lock the colour in for longer, so that is something I have yet to try.
I wash my hair every day as it goes greasy quite quickly, and sometimes twice per day if I’ve been to the gym, which tends to strip the colour from my hair quite quickly, so if using this oil makes my colour last longer, it will be another big bonus to this little product.
The other product in the box is a hair treatment mask, which you leave on for 7 minutes after washing your hair, then rinse off. It is like using a thick conditioner, and has a similar smell to the treatment oil. Again, my hair felt noticeable softer and looked very shiny after using the mask. I don’t often use hair masks, mainly because I never seem to have time to spare to let it soak in, and after one use, I didn’t think the effect was much different to using the oil treatment alone (it may make more of a difference if your hair is quite dry), so I would probably just stick to using the oil treatment each time I wash my hair.
I have already purchased a full size spray bottle of the oil treatment so I don’t run out! Definitely a success!
