Hello lovelies, I hope you're all well! A couple weeks ago I was contacted by Fragrance Direct and asked whether I would like to choose some products off their site to review on my blog. Now, I'm sure many of you have heard about Fragrance Direct as it is well known by bloggers for having an amazing selection of beauty brands at cheap prices! I was very excited about trying some new products and after a good read through the site, I decided on a couple of products from the Macadamia Natural Oil range; the Nourishing Leave In Cream and Healing Oil Treatment.
Macadamia hair products contain a blend of Argan and Macadamia oils which are brilliant at nourishing dry, damaged and tangled hair. Recently my hair has felt very dry and tangled so I was hoping that these two products would help make it soft and manageable again!
Macadamia Natural Oil Nourishing Leave In Cream 300ml* [£11.50] LINK
The first product I tried was the Nourishing Leave In Cream which comes in a huge 300ml bottle with a pump. I absolutely love the packaging and design of the Leave In Cream. The green and brown floral design gives it an earthy, natural feel which made me think this product was going to be really good for my hair. The Leave In Cream is designed to de-tangle, tame and protect your hair from the sun's UV rays as well as adding softness and shine! It is also a texture cream so leaves your hair feeling full and thick as well as soft! After I washed my hair, I towel dried it and then added about half a pump of the cream to the lengths of my hair. As I have very fine hair I didn't need too much product, but the amount you use will depend on your hair's thickness and type. I found that the cream absorbed into my hair quickly and didn't leave it feeling heavy or as if there was loads of product in it, which is great for my fine hair! Once my hair was dry (I leave it to air dry naturally), I found that the Leave In Cream left my hair very curly, full of body and most importantly incredibly soft! The cream also smells amazing and it gave my hair a beautiful scent, just as if I'd had it done at the salon! After using the Leave In Cream every time I washed my hair for the last 2 weeks, I'm in love the results it has given me and now my second day curls don't feel as dry or look as frizzy as they used to be! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with dry, thin and curly hair as it will help nourish and define your locks within just 1 use.
If you fancy trying the Nourishing Leave In Cream before buying the full size, you can purchase a 60ml version for just £2.99!
Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment 30ml* [£5.99] LINK
The next macadamia product I tried was the Healing Oil Treatment which is perfect for all hair types and can be used on a daily basis. The oil comes in a 30ml glass bottle (it also has the same green and brown design) which has no pump or dispenser, you simply pour the required amount of product out on to your hand. I would have preferred that the oil came with a pump but I haven't had any trouble or made any mess by pouring the oil out. The Healing Oil Treatment claims to nourish, protect the hair from UV rays and again leaves your hair smooth, shiny and manageable. As well as this, the oil is supposed to reduce hair drying time by 40 - 50% which is probably a life-saver for ladies with very thick hair that takes ages to dry! How this works is the oil will absorb into your wet hair which in turn will push the water out of the hair, allowing it to dry quicker. For me, my hair dries very quickly any way as it's so thin, so I didn't see any improvements in my drying time. When I used the oil on wet hair I only needed 1 drop for the lengths of my hair. I found that it absorbed straight away and didn't leave it feeling greasy at all! Once my hair was dry, it was left shiny, soft and smelling amazing - it has the same gorgeous scent as the Leave In Cream! I also found it left the same results when used on dry hair but it also reduced any frizziness and left my curls defined and manageable. I've been using the Healing Oil Treatment everyday for the last 2 weeks and I have to say my hair looks so much healthier and nourished plus my tangles have definitely been reduced. If you've been looking for a new hair oil to try, I would completely recommend you trying the Macadamia one, it's left my hair looking and feeling so much better!
If you fancy trying the Healing Oil Treatment before buying the full size, you can purchase a 10ml version for just £3.75!
So overall I am really impressed with the Macadamia range and I love how the products have left my hair! Also, these 2 products can be used together on wet hair to add extra softness and shine. In the picture above I have used both the Leave In Cream and the Oil Treatment and you can see my hair has been left shiny and defined. I will definitely be trying out some more products by Macadamia, I've especially got my eye on tyring the Deep Repair Masque so fingers crossed it pops up on the Fragrance Direct website soon!
