Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque | Worth the Hype?
I’ve tried a plethora of hair masks and I’m forever whipping up my own hair masks too but for some strange reason, I had yet to try the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque despite the large hype surrounding it. Macadamia Natural Oil has a similar hype and following to Moroccanoil and their products haven’t disappointed me so I expected the same with this masque.
I’ll usually leave a hair mask in for at least 2 hours, I just can’t leave it in for a few minutes; what’s the point? But I’ve been pressed for time lately so I think I left the mask to work its magic for about 10-15 minutes. Considering the extremely short amount of time I left the mask in, it worked so well on my hair. Very well. My hair’s been behaving so well and is super moisturised.
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..
