On a recent visit to my hairdresser, I got a serious telling off about the state of my tresses. Despite rarely using heated styling tools and generally taking care of my hair, my hair was ravaged by split ends and weakened so that it was prone to breakage. My hairdresser, who I've been loyally going to for over five years, put it down to recent stress and weight loss. She suggested that I add on the Phillip Kingsley Steam treatment to my hair appointment & snipped away a good few inches. She also recommended that I up my game at home, using a weekly hair mask as opposed to once every couple or few weeks. With this in mind, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out blogger favourite, Macadamia Deep Repair Masque and it's quickly become part of my Sunday evening pamper routine.
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is available in a 100ml tube, 250ml tub, 500ml value tub or trial sachet. Regular readers will know that I prefer tubes to tubs, finding them to be less messy and more hygienic, so it will come as little surprise that I opted for the 100ml tube, which is reasonably priced at approximately £9.50.
The brown and green packaging is aesthetically appealing, perhaps in part because it's so familiar to me after seeing various bloggers and vloggers rave about the product. The tube packaging is functional and well suited to the thick texture of the pearlised cream mask as it was easy to control how much was dispensed without wastage. The directions were clear and I appreciated the convenience offered by the fact that the mask gets to work in under 10 minutes.
Despite the thick formula, I found it easy to work the mask through my hair and subsequently, was impressed at how easy it was to rinse out. It has a very pleasant fresh, fruity fragrance. I was only able to detect this very slightly in my hair once it had been dried & styled (when it smelt fresh & clean).
Following use, my hair was left looking shiny, smooth and with frizz diminished. It felt soft & I was pleased that my fine hair wasn't weighed down but instead had healthy movement and bounce.
I feel that this is improving the condition of my hair. It's a joy to use and one of my favourites of the hair masks I've tried. I feel that it's definitely deserving of the hype and I can't recommend it highly enough.
