My Thoughts: 
Rejuvenating Shampoo- 
I try to force my hair to like shampoo. It fights back. Tangles take over. It wins. I loose. This shampoo is no exception. I can't call it gentle or moisturizing but I can say that its excellent at removing build-up and giving your that squeaky clean feeling. You'll get a great lather, although its sulfate free and the scent is yummy. In the future, I'd probably use this in a co-cleanser mix or in place of my regular clarifying shampoo. 

Deep Repair Mask- 
My commitment to fighting breakage and strengthening my ends (to increase my length retention) requires me to enlist a good protein packed conditioner to use just on my previously relaxed ends frequently (I use a uber moisturizing treatment on my roots). I didn't want to like this conditioner. Why? Just take a good look at the price of the 8.5oz tub of this stuff. Boom. That's why. But, my hair likes it. It might even love it in a few weeks. Although its pricey, a little goes a long way. It's ultra rich and super thick. I've used this sample size here, here, here and I still have enough for 1 or 2 more deep conditioning sessions. I like the way that my ends absorb it and how after rinsing my hair feels so smooth, so light. This isn't a conditioner that you use to aid in detangling. You definitely need to make sure that you detangle before applying. Nor is this a conditioner that you use for moisture. If you feel that your hair isn't the biggest protein fan, you'll want to follow this treatment up with a moisturizing deep condition. The scent is awesome and for some reason, I feel like my ends are retaining moisture better with the addition of this gem to my regimen. In a few weeks, when I straighten, I'll be able to see if it's helped keep my ends in tact. 

Have you ever tried an of the Macadamia Natural Oil products?

Besitos!

  1. I've tried the mask before and I really liked it but it didn't last long at all! I finished up the same size you have in 3 weeks x

    1. Since I'm only using it on my ends, it makes this sample size last for a long time! Definitely a great way to use an expensive product!

    1. Luckily, I spotted the sample size shampoo and deep repair masque at Ulta in the clearance section. The shampoo was about 4 and the masque was 5. Steals!

  3. I may have to try the mask out, $11 isn't too bad compared to some of my favorites. Sounds like a good product, thanks for the review!

    1. I really didn't want to like this at all because of the price, but my hair had other plans. Hopefully, I can find it on sale again at Ulta when this tube is done.

    1. Hahahaha! I didn't want to love it either girl! Fingers crossed that it keeps breakage on my ends to a minimum. Then it will be worth its weight in gold honey!

  10. I've seen it at the shops at different occasions, but the price keeps putting me off. I got a conditioner from a pound shop that contains macadamia oil (so it says on the bottle). I like the fragrance and how it leaves my hair feeling.
