I recently went to Ulta to buy cotton rounds and whenever I go to Ulta I walk around a bit to see if there is anything new. I was walking around in the hair section and these containers with lime-green lids caught my attention. So I walk over to them and see that it's a new haircare line which consists of shampoos, masques and other treatments. There was also no price on these, so I immediately knew they would be expensive lol I opened one of the bottles to smell it and WOW I fell in love with the scent right then and there. I didn't quite know what this smells was so I read the back like I always do to find out that it's Macadamia Oil! It smells nutty, and almost like there is a bit of coconut in it too. I didn't really need a shampoo but the Deep Repair Masque sounded like something I could use on my hair since I straighten my hair more than I should and really even though I am using my heat protective spray religiously, I am still damaging my hair! So I took the bottle with me to the register and discovered it's $28 (for 8.5oz) okay that was a little too much to spend on a hair masque.
I took their website address, came home, logged on and found that they have a $5 sample pack which includes the masque AND the healing oil treatment. $5 didn't seem too much to give it a try. I received the package in speed of light, literally, it was here the next day all the way from Cali.! I tried the masque for the first time last night and I am just amazed by how good it is! I am not even talking about the smell which is awesome, but I am talking about how it feels on your hair. I have naturally wavy/curly and quite thick hair. I think the fact that my hair is thick causes it to be not so soft. Well we can't have everything we want! While in the shower, reading the instructions, I applied this masque to my shampooed and rinsed hair and left it on for 7 minutes and also combed it through. I felt that the masque went straight to work because I was able to very easily comb it right away. Now, I always comb my hair while in the shower after I apply my conditioner but I can never comb it right away because it takes a while for the conditioner to start working. 7 minutes later I rinsed it off which again was super easy, I noticed with other masques/treatments that I used you need to rinse for 5 minutes for everything to wash off. After towel drying my hair I could still smell the scent in my hair, I just slept for 9 hours (with my hair wet, simply because I like to air dry it unless I'm in a hurry) and the smell is still here! What is more important is that my hair is soft beyond words. After towel drying my hair last night I didn't brush it on purpose to see if my hair will be tangled when I wake up in the morning. Right now I'm sitting here with my crazy curly hair which has absolutely no tangles and is shining like a star and I can actually run my fingers through it! According to this little booklet I received along with the samples, Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is a combination of macadamia oil, argan oil along with tea tree oil (which I LOVE!), chamomile oil and aloe. I will definitely be purchasing this in full-size and will let you guys know how the Healing Oil Treatment works for me. Their website address is http://www.macadamiahair.com/ for those who are interested, I just checked and they still have the $5 sample pack.
