Macadamia Natural OIl Deep Repair Masque

"Revitalizing hair reconstruction for dry, damaged hair."

When I first heard about this stuff I knew I needed to try it. My hair is extremely damaged from heat and dye. I seen it at Ulta for around $30 and I realized that was pretty expensive. So, I heard on Youtube a while back that Amazon has it cheaper, and left it on the back burner of my mind until a couple months ago. I went on Amazon to find out if they had it any cheaper....welp, they did! all 8.5 fl. oz. of it for $17! oh yeah! I payed like $3 for shipping so I really think if you wanna check this out, check out Amazon first. I saved $10 (:


"Our Macadamia and Argan oils combine with tea tree and chamomile oils, aloe, and algae extracts to produce miracle like rejuvenation."

First thought was that it didn't smell like macadamia nuts, which was a surprise, lol. It smells like a salon conditioner basically, with a strange twist. I can't describe it. It's nothing awful, it's just different. The texture of the masque (mask) is also much less creamy and much more thick then any conditioner. It is almost like there is serum running through it, as you can see (last picture below). When it is in my hair it feels the softest I have ever felt my hair. I have already used it 7x and I think I can get another 3 uses out of the jar- maybe even another? My hair is long, it goes almost past my boobs so if you have shorter hair, your going to get more out of it.


The first time I used it, I used it as directed:

"Liberally comb through clean. wet hair and allow up to 7 minutes of penetration before rinsing. No heat necessary. Deep Repair Masque is an intense treatment. Use no more than twice a week."

I left it in my hair and put a shower cap over top so I didn't condition all of my pillows. I left it in for 20 minutes. I washed it out. I realized how greasy my hair felt. I also noticed that my hair was really weighed down- almost like I didn't even wash it: ouch. I almost wanted to just give it away but then I remembered my blog and I felt as if I had an obligation to use it again. My blog saved me money for once. You will never see that previous sentence written on Meet Makeup again. 

I used it for a second time a week or so later. But this time I put it on during the shower. I first washed my hair with shampoo and then put the masque all over my head of hair, skipping conditioner. Afterward, I exfoliated, shaved, washed my whole body, my face, & brushed my teeth- normal shower routine which took me about 20 minutes. Right before I got out of the shower, I washed out the masque. I am not sure if it was the heat and humidity of the shower or what but it really made such a difference using it in the shower for some reason. Don't ask why, I really don't know. Lately, I have been putting the masque mostly on my ends and then using a little bit of another conditioner on roots just to save some of my masque. I think it works just the same: maybe even better because I am using more conditioner? The science behind it, I can't explain to you guys! All I can give is my opinion.

After my second use, my hair felt really soft, smooth and extremely easy to manage. That is something I think you can find in any run-of-the-mill hair masque. What stood out to me was that my hair actually felt stronger and looked a lot healthier. My dead ends also seemed to bind back together after my 3rd and 4th use.

Overall: I do think that it is a treatment you should stick with as the longer you do so, the healthier your hair will become.  However the price is a little outrageous, unless of course you visit Amazon. I cannot see myself paying $30 for the masque as well as any other masque no matter how good it is. With that said, I think $17 is a really good deal. I may or may not repurchase in the near future. I do think this will be a staple for years to come when I need some deep TLC for my hair. I do not think it is a must have unless you are having major breakage or if your hair is unhealthy. I have used other masque's and I don't like them as much as I like this. I do want to try other masque's and, this time, use them in the shower. I think it is my best bet.
