There should be more macadamia oil in this mask
(an excerpt from my blog review of the mask)
One thing I’d recommend to you ladies is that you use the mask in moderation as a little really does go a long way here. The consistency of the mask is pretty thick and I ended up using a bit too much of the mask when tom me it looked like a minuscule amount as I tend to scoop out nearly all of the contents and slather it all over my hair. Oh how I was wrong to do so with this mask. It left my hair looking a little greasy so I’ve now learned my lesson to not get too ahead of myself.
The question that has yet to be answered is whether the Macadamia Deep Repair Mask is worth the hype. In all honesty, no. Though it left my dry hair very well hydrated, there’s not even much macadamia oil in the mask and it’s waayyyy down in the list of ingredients:
Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetrimonium Chloride, Quaternium-80, Amodimethicone, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, Algae Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Citronellol, C11-15 Pareth-7, C12-16 Pareth-9, Trideceth-12, Trimethylsiloxyamodimethicone.
You can see that Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil is number 14 in the ingredients list. It should really be called the Castor Oil Deep Repair Masque as there’s more castor oil than there is macadamia oil in this mask. As a business student, I know all too much about marketing and it sounds nice to say that your product is full of macadamia oil or argan oil as that’s what’s selling these days but if I was to try and sell you a hair mask and I heavily focused on the castor oil, would you be as interested? That’s for you to decide.
I loooove dying my hair frequently and changing up the color so my hair goes through alot!! I recently tried going from black hair to a liiight brown and i had to strip my hair, it was HORRIBLE!! my hair felt like a rubber band and fragile and looked like hay!! I used this deep repair mask religiously and my hair instantly got better .. WAAAYY BETTER!! I've been in love ever since .. it works great and smells good too!!!
Perfect for Dry/Damaged Hair.
I literally just used this two days ago, and my hair still feels silky and soft. I have extremely damaged hair, so I use products that are marketed for my hair type. I've heard only amazing things about this, so I decided to buy it when it was on sale at Hautelook. Unlike other deep conditioners, you only need to leave it in for about 7 minutes, which is a life saver to me. I tend to shave my legs while I wait just so I'm actually doing something rather than just sitting in my shower. I rinse my hair out with cold water (yes, it's the worst part of the shower) and I find that it makes my hair extra shiny. Love this product!
My heart <3
Pretty much the other reviews explain how amazing this stuff can be. It says to use no more than two times a week but I only wash my hair twice a week since my hair is thick and dry so I deep condition every time. LOVE IT! The more regularity you use it, the healthier your hair gets. Mine was pretty damaged and dry when I started using it. I think people use this product expecting sheer miracles to happen because of how much other people love this stuff. It's all natural so it may not be as instantly gratifying as silicones are but over time your hair will benefit more. Keep real expectations but this stuff is nothing short of amazing.
I SWEAR BY THIS HAIR MASK!
I am in absolute love with this hair mask! First & foremost I will say that this mask is definitely on the pricey side, now having said that it is so worth it!! I noticed the first time I used this mask how soft & manageable it made my hair, I could not believe it! You only need a little of the product because it's so thick but I tend to saturate my hair with it & even still it has lasted me a very long time! Being that it last so long that's why I say it's well worth it. This is definitely not a once or two time use then boom the whole thing is gone NO! It will last so long before you find yourself having to repurchase. Oh wait, did I mention the smell!?! It smells AMAZING (sorry thats the best description I can give lol) & the scent actually last days in your hair not like other products which just smell good then once you rinse it out the scent is no where to be found. I've actually tried other products from this brand & it has yet to fail me. I will forever rant & rave about this product!
I have tried most hair products under the sun... But once I found this I haven't bought anything else! I have natural blonde hair that I highlight 3 to 4 times a year, so I stays in fairly good condition but I am still prone to dryness. I use this as directed on the package and the difference it has made in my hair is unbelievable! I could get more intense results if I leave it on longer or use heat with it I'm sure but it works so good I haven't even bothered! When I first bought it I was hesitant because of the price, but now I'm hooked! A little goes a long way and if you love your hair it's worth it! I plan to try the other Macadamia products as well!
Worth every penny!
I love this mask! I use it every week or so, and you don't have to use a lot to see improvements. It is a bit pricy, but it is going to last me a while + it is so worth it. It leaves my hair feeling like magic! For red heads: mix it with some semi-permanent hair dye and use it a color depositor. It leaves your hair feeling awesome plus adds color into your hair without having to redye it.
Really love this product! What would I do with out it?!
This adds moisture like no other! I have dry wavy/curly hair and this does wonders. This helps me de-tangle while making my hair super soft. It also makes my hair smell amazing! I use it every time I wash my hair especially on my ends. A little goes a long way. I think this tub will last me forever. Its nice that Ulta offers good sized samples. After using my sample I went and purchased the full size. Id recommend it!
Quick take: Fantastic for dry hair! Curly hair heaven!
After using this Deep Repair Masque my hair was smooth and awesome! Man, I love this product! It is definitely my absolute favourite conditioner/masque of all time! I'm really happy with how my hair turned out after using the masque. The texture of my curls is phenomenal and they hold their shape in a tight ringlet without me styling them with gel or anything and they remain so soft and delicious. And the relaxing fragrance smells really clean and fresh; even the next morning my hair still smelt glorious! I would definitely repurchase this and feel like stocking up on it already. The packaging is nice and The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is definitely my holy grail of conditioners. I feel relieved and in love. I have found my hair's nirvana!
If you have dry, coloured or curly hair I would absolutely recommend the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. It's worth the price and smells just as nice!
