Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque Review

Saturday, 7 September 2013

My hair is notoriously dry and damaged, due to a love of back-combing and colouring. Over the past few months however I've been trying to cut down on back-combing and making sure I take care of my hair, in the hope of getting my locks growing longer (see my post here). To do this I've been cutting down on washing it, quitting back-combing and of course, doing regular deep treatments.

A little while ago I was sent the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque to review, and had high hopes for it to get my hair in a better condition. Containing macadamia oil and argan oil, along with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts, it sounded like the ideal treat for my lacklustre locks. Unfortunately, after a few months of using it I'm not particularly impressed. Whilst it does make my hair feel better temporarily, it definitely doesn't hydrate it as much as my Moroccanoil Deep Conditioner did (which I posted about here), and just generally hasn't made much of a difference to my hair's condition. For the amount of oils in the conditioner, and the price of it, I was expecting a lot more. Whilst it isn't a terrible conditioner, I have found much better drugstore deep conditioners in the past, including the likes of Dove and Herbal Essences.

Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this product and I definitely won't be repurchasing. I think a lot of my disappointment lies in the fact I had the Moroccanoil version to compare it to, which was completely fantastic, whereas this is a lot less impressive. If you're looking for a high-end deep conditioner I wouldn't advise getting this, but instead opt for something like Moroccanoil's version.

 Have you tried this conditioner from Macademia Natural Oil? What did you think to it?
