Among my many obsessive behaviors when it comes to beauty and skin products, I also have quite the affinity for hair masks. I know, who would’ve thought! When it comes to hair masks I’m quite the junkie, I can have anywhere from 3-8 hair masks open at any given time, since I get bored easily I like to rotate masks.
When Moroccan, Argan, Monoi ,and Macadamia oil hair masks became all the rage a few years back, I was tempted to try them and wary at the same time. When I heard the word oil I instantly had horrified flashbacks of using olive oil as a hair mask and being left with greasy slicked hair post shampoo. After, doing research I came to the realization my worries were not needed.
Initially, when going purchasing the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque at Ulta, I was hestinant to jump in and purchase a huge tub of the masque for two reasons 1. it was pretty pricey at $33 for 8.5oz and 2. I wasn’t sure I was going to love it and who wants a giant tub of product that you hate sitting around mocking you.
I decided to go ahead and purchase the individual travel packs that were only two, or three, maybe four dollars a piece? Either way it was much more affordable. Four, it’s definitely $4, thank you internet! At that time I also bought the travel size Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment (because the regular size was also super pricey at $40) and Nourishing Leave In- Cream, I mean why not?
After, trying all three products I fell in love. All three products smell amazing, like unbelievably amazing. The Deep Repair Masque left my hair so incredibly soft and healthy feeling, that I wanted to use it every day. I have seen a huge improvement in the overall health of my hair since using this mask.
My real love though is the Healing Oil Treatment. Ohhh my god, is this product worth every little penny. It can be used in a multitude of ways. This product can be used on dry hair before shampooing, under the Deep Repair Masque for a little added oomph, it can be used as a leave in oil, and even used on dry hair to moisturize the ends. This product just has endless options for use and you really get your worth from this oil.
The one product that I liked but didn’t love and that I don’t see as a must have for my arsenal is the Nourishing Leave- in Cream. While this cream works well, it hydrates and possibly nourishes, I just felt it left my hair a bit sticky after blow-drying. All in all, it just didn’t leave me wowed enough to want to repurchase a bigger size.
Have you tried the Macadamia Natural Oil products? What are your favorite hair masks?
