Product Review: Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Masque

Price: $4.00 Sample Size - $28 8.5oz - $46 16.9oz

I admit I avoided this stuff like the plague because I thought that this was going to be yet another faddish hair product that used "exotic ingredients" for label appeal yet delivered less than desirable results. While perusing my local beauty supply, I saw a sample size packet [$4.00] of the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Masque and decided to give it a go.

Tip: Before trying new products, always clarify to remove excess product buildup. This allows you to see exactly how the product works on your hair.

According to the website:
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is a revitalizing hair reconstructor for dry, damaged hair. A combination of macadamia oil and argan oil along with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts rejuvenate and rebuild the hair, leaving the hair deeply nourished for improved elasticity and shine with long-lasting conditioning benefits.
I clarified with Lanza Daily Clarifying shampoo and followed up with a moisturizing shampoo to correct the PH balance and restore moisture back into my hair. I then applied the entire packet and allowed it to sit [covered with a plastic cap] for about 30 minutes without heat.

After rinsing out the product [with cold water] my hair felt amazing! Check out these ratings:
Softness: 10
Shine: 8
Manageability: 9
Elasticity: 8

Suitable for all hair types [especially the ultra thirsty, brittle, dry strands], I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a intense moisturizing treatment. If you have dry, brittle hair, this is for you! If you are transitioning and your strands are seriously lacking moisture and elasticity, give this treatment a shot. - I loved this product so much I purchased the 8.5oz size [$28]. For me, $28 is a lot of money to spend on a conditioner, however it worked so well I really couldn't talk myself out of it. I figure I can treat myself to an ultra-hydrating moisturizing treatment once a month.

  1. that sounds fab and I'd like to try it since it doesn't cost an arm and a leg for a sample

  2. Hmmm, looks interesting. Have you ever used Ojon Restorative Hair treatment? This product seems like it would be kind of like that although I've only tried Ojon once when I was relaxed a few years ago...

    This product has similar prices/sizing as the Ojon stuff and it uses these "exotic oils" so I wondered about it since I'm looking to invest in a good deep treatment.

  3. I passed by this product at Ulta yesterday because I assumed it would be another (expensive) disappointment. Maybe I'll try a sample of it.

  4. Thank you for the product review. Are you inclined to try some of the other Macadamia Natural Oil products?

  5. thanks for the review :) I'm always looking for moisturizing products for my curls :D

    I've been MIA for so long, your site is looking wonderful girl!

  6. This is completely off topic but i just saw that there will be a Vintage Fashion Expo at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Oct. 16 and 17 and thought of your blog. Thought it might be worth checking out. Just thought i'd share : )

  7. This sounds great! I'm compelled to try it. Thanks for the review!

  8. Ok, so I was so convinced by your review that I went to the website to order the sample. I ended up ordering their "get hooked" pkg which includes:

    1oz Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment, 2oz Rejuvenating Shampoo, 1oz Deep Repair Masque, and the groundbreaking oil infused Comb for $17.50

    And my order shipped the same day. Can't wait to try it!

  9. Thanks for the review. I've tried the healing oil from this line. It's okay. I wouldn't say it's a miracle product or anything. I wasn't impressed. For it's price, you will have better results with Ojon's line.

  10. Im interested in knowing how the hair looks/feels after it's dry.

  11. Can the sample be found at Sallys?

  12. @socialitedreams; Right?!? That was my rationale behind purchasing the sample as well!

    @Anonymous; I honestly tried it and wasn't that impressed on the treatment :-| I may revisit a sample pack of the Ojon soon and see if there is a difference now.

    @aliesa_33; Definitely give the sample a go! This stuff is the! lol; You're welcome! I am actually, I don't know which one I want to try first but I will definitely pick up a thing or two next time I make my way to Ulta.

    @TKOmulatta; You're welcome and thanks for stopping by friend!

    @c.marie; Oh boy is that gonna get me into trouble! I think I will have to swing by since I missed the last one! Thanks for the reminder!

    @Veronica W.; You're welcome!

    @Stephanie C.; Only $17.50?? I am a PJ for real, I don't know how long I can hold out before I log on the website and buy the same thing! LOLL

    @Anonymous; I have never tried the healing oil. I rarely buy oils because they are usually chock-full of cheap filler oils like soybean. I can find richer products in my cabinet. Thanks for the heads-up

    @Anonymous; Soft, hydrated, manageable, shiny. There was no product residue, and I could more than likely skip a day of moisturizing if I wanted to. This stuff is definitely extremely moisturizing.

    @xoxkeyanna; Unfortunately no, it's only found in most high-end professional beauty supply stores, or stores like Ulta and Sephora. You can however order a sample from their website.

  13. I got my 1oz package in the mail (ordered from website) and gave it a try I must say it left my mane super soft with no detangling needed! I may just splurge and order the bigger jar. Thanks for sharing the product with your readers :)
