Review: Macadamia - Deep Repair Masque


This deep hair conditioner has been raved about for some time, and was on my lust list for over a year before I received it for Christmas. My hair is very long and has been chemically processed so does need some TLC.

There are some silicones in the ingredients which do make your hair look and feel better, but of course its not actually repairing your hair just making it feel better. Some people don't like coating their hair with silicone based conditioners, as for me I don't mind. But it is something to be aware of.

This is the 100ml tube and it claims;
"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 used this around six times, focusing it mainly on the mid to end length of my hair. It was very thick and almost looked as if it had shimmer running through it, which didn't stay on my hair at all. The tube made it much easier to use than the larger jar type sizes.

To me this didn't smell of anything interesting, more a generic clean shampoo / conditioner scent. I think it was similar to the Pantene scent.

My hair seemed to be soft, smelt fresh and clean and was left soft. However nothing a standard conditioner doesn't leave my hair feeling. I was expecting it to be something a bit more than it was. Perhaps this would work better for other hair types.


So while I was happy to receive it as a gift and to try it out I am glad that I didn't get the larger jar. And it isn't something I would go out and buy again. The claims about increased elasticity I didn't find to be true but I also didn't find Philip Kingsleys Elasticizer did anything for my hair either. So do try the smaller tube before plunging in for the larger expensive jar.
