Beauty Review: Macadamia Oil

Hair oils are suddenly everywhere. Ever since Moroccan Oil hit the shelves a couple of years ago there have been numerous products created to rival it. I must admit I am a convert to L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil and it has become one of my all time hero products. However, I was given a little sample of the Macadamia Oil and Macadamia Deep Repair Masque in the Bbloggers Christmas Party goody bag and I may have found a new rival! I am a big fan of hair masks and cannot get enough of Aussie 3 minute Miracle, but the Macadamia mask was also gorgeous. The smell was delicious, leaving my hair smelling wonderful right through until my next wash. The mask is left on for up to 10 minutes then rinsed off to revive dry and damaged hair, which is exactly how I would describe my hair at the moment during the winter months. The mask uses a combination of macadamia oil and argan oil, aswell as tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts. All these ingredients work together to rejuvenate the hair and leave it super shiny and conditioned.

I also used the Healing Oil Treatment which can be used on damp hair after washing, or dry hair after styling like a serum. I tend to use mine on damp hair. The oil, aswell as smelling delicious, made my hair feel really soft, nourished and shiny. It is also really good at beating frizz, which is always an issue during these rainy months.

I would 100% recommend the Macadamia range for dry or damaged hair, or even if your hair just needs a little bit of moisture and revival. The only drawback for me would be the price, the hair oil retails at £29.95 for 125ml and the mask, £23.95 for 250ml. However, I have a tiny 10ml bottle which I have used 3 times already and it is still pretty much full, so it will last you forever! There are many other products on the market that do a fantastic job, such as the L'Oreal Elvive hair oil and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle and are a lot cheaper. But if you fancy a bit of luxury in your life, Macadamia is the way forward.
