This product is pure gold! I haven't even used it for that long, but I can already tell the effects on my hair after 2 uses. If I let my hair air dry or blow dry (w/o styling), I usually get a frizzy and really dry texture to my hair that is really unruly. But when using this after conditioning, I find that my hair is silky smooth when wet. Afterwards, it dries to a smoother and silkier finish, even without styling.
Having paid the full price for this expensive formula, I will definitely repurchase. I read reviews that said that the smaller bottle is completely different, so beware. Otherwise, I would just suggest that you bite the bullet and get the full size. Reviews don't lie. The small trial packets are so expensive.
This conditioner makes my hair so soft & silky! In the past few months, I've put my hair through the ringer with bleach. First, I didn't use a strong enough bleach to get blond highlights on my dark hair. So I did a second try & finally achieved light caramel highlights. Still not 100% happy, I went to the salon and had them add some actual blond highlights. I love the results, but after all this, my hair is very dry and straw-like in some sections. After using the Macadamia Conditioner, it looked & felt like brand new virgin hair! I was truly amazed at the results. The conditioner smells great – my boyfriend even noticed, and he doesn’t usually notice anything. The only problem I have with this conditioner is that it contains dimethicone (silicone). I guess that’s why the instructions say to only use it once a week. If your hair is constantly coated in silicone, it will become more & more dry over time, because the silicone adds a barrier that prevents it from absorbing moisture. Would love to see this product without silicones, but not sure if it would make hair look as shiny without that ingredient. For now, I save my once-a-week use for Friday evening, so my hair looks healthy
Far and away one of the best hair products I have ever used! This deep conditioning mask lives up to the hype and is worth the money. I don't have much to say about it that hasn't been said already- it leaves my hair silky, manageable, less frizzy, and well-behaved without weighing it down at all. I don't use it that often but I always see a difference for the better when I do.
The full-size tub is pricey, but you can buy a 1oz sample packet from Ulta for $4 which is a great way to try it out. I like to add it to my cart if I need to add a couple more dollars to get free shipping or something like that.
Wonderful product that works- recommended and a definite repurchase!
I'm a hairstylist and I as well as my clients love this product it's amazing. It spreads well on wet hair and nourishes hair better than most others. I recomend this product to everyone
Jc penney salons sell it.
I got a sample size of this luckily because I wouldn't of been impressed if I had shelled out for this. As others have mentioned this is a 'repair' mask not a 'deep conditioning' mask so it doesn't leave my hair nearly as smooth and manageable as other deep treatments do. Same as all the Moroccan oil and macadamia line there all overhyped and unimpressive. Someone could easily get a better deep treatment at the drug store at less than half the price of this. My current HG is Redken extreme builder and this doesn't come close. I will not be repurchasing
This is an absolute must if you have dry, or damaged hair. This masque is literally going to repair your hair when you have it on. It leaves my fine hair smooth, soft, and almost buttery feeling. It is so soft, I can't even put it in a pony tail the day after I wash it out. I use it every other week, overnight. One warning - if you do not like strong floral scents, you will NOT like this masque. The scent is strong, and it WILL linger in your hair.
If you don't want to plunge in and purchase this $$$ I recommend picking up the L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm. It is waaaay cheaper, and does very similar things to your hair! (The smell is better too, in my opinion.)
I can't wait to use this mask up..this is probably the beauty purchase I regret the most. Not just because of the lackluster results..but because of the intolerable smell. It smells like Hawaii, but not in a normal bath and body way (a pleasant scent that washes away), but in a cheap perfume kind of way. And the overwhelming smell does not go away until your next shampoo...if you're lucky. But back to the results. Well, it felt nice on my hair, and my hair felt like silk as I was rinsing it out. I couldn't wait to see the results after it was dried and styled. Unfortunately, there was no difference...except for the intolerable smell and consequent migraine.
I absolutely LOVED this. I've been using the L'Oreal Professional Absolute Repair Cellular deep conditioner and haven't been overly happy with it, but I just figured that since it was so expensive, it must be doing what it's supposed to do. Then I tried this stuff and WOW it's amazing. First of all, the smell is just heavenly fantastic. Second of all, it made my hair SO much smoother and softer and easy to comb through than my L'Oreal deep conditioner ever did. I'm getting rid of my old deep conditioner and have already purchased a tub of this stuff after trying the sample! I can't wait to use it again! HIGHLY recommended!
Update 12/21/13 - Still use this deep conditioner once a week and I absolutely love the smell of it. It continues to make my hair extremely and noticeably soft, smooth and manageable. I am beginning to run low on it so will almost assuredly pick more up at Target soon. Definitely recommend this product!
i really like this product. it makes my hair soft and shiny, but doesnt really give me quite the "wow factor" i was expecting....and the packaging is hard to use in the shower... love the smell, i think that is my favorite part, it lingers after you wash it out as well.. and it overall does a good job, just dont know if its worth the price.
Another Over Hyped~Over Priced product that doesn't do anything your cheaper drug store hair masks couldn't do..First off, it's a "Repair" mask, not a "Moisturizing Mask", which means its a Reconstructor, NOT a Deep Conditioner..Hence, the not so soft, moisturized feel I was expecting after drying off my hair..My Joico K-Pak hair reconstructor did a better job..I have One sample pack of this Repair Mask left, & I will use it again just so that it doesn't go to waste..But will NOT be purchasing this again.
