Luckily i bought a small version of this. Not effective at all. Smelling cheap also. If u wanna take the best out of it, use it on wet hair after shower.

I didn't really like this. After I washed my hair in there Shampoo and Conditioner range I used one pump of there leave in cream on towel dried hair and it felt sticky. I much prefer the Moroccanoil Styling cream as it seemed to condition my hair without having that tacky feeling in my clean hair.

Having recently bought the entire Macadamia range (my poor wallet) I feel very equipped to provide a review on this leave in cream.

This is not my favourite product of the range, but I still rate it. I used one full pump of the product on my long, fine to medium highlighted blonde hair following use of the shampoo and conditioner of the same range. In hindsight, 3/2 of a pump would probably have been a better amount for my hair type, but my hair is in no way greasy and smells delicious.

It looks healthy, soft and smooth. I haven't had to heat style it yet, but would expect that once I use my flat iron, the effects of this product would really come through.

I've noted a few people say that they have experienced a strange consistency when using this product. I have not found this to make my hair feel textured or sticky at all. Perhaps they have extremely fine hair or are not accustomed to using a leave in product.

My HG leave in is Unite 7 Second spray, but this is a close second. I would prefer to use this product when I want my hair to look really healthy and shiny after flat ironing. I definitely prefer this over an actual oil, which always make me a bit nervous as I find they can be a bit unpredictable with my hair type.

It's a bit expensive but the product is huge and one pump is more than enough to cover the hair. I like the pump applicator (no mess, better than a tube).

Don't be put off by the negative reviews. I would buy this if you're a serial flat-ironer like myself that has coloured hair and requires heat protection that moisturises/smooths your hair and adds shine without weighing it down.

I have long, wavy hair that has suffered a Little damage from coloring in the past.

First of all this product smells great, but apart from that I don't like it very much. Don't get me wrong, it's not an awful product. Just not my favourite.

I got this as a gift from my mom, and Macadamia seems to be a great brand so I was excited to try it out. However I find it leaving my hair feeling a bit sticky for very long, and it didn't do much for my frizziness or waves. The slightly sticky feeling of the product stays in my hair at least until the day after, and since I have long hair and I wear it just hanging loose most of the time I didn't like that.

I could imagine this product being a great option for those of you who have shoulder-lenght hair or shorter, and perhaps you don't like using oils in hair that short. Because I feel like it's slightly texturizing, which can be great if you have a shorter haircut and you want to be able to shape it.

However, I will keep using this product until I run out. I mean it claims to have nourishing ingredients, and I'm not letting Anything that might be nourishing for my hair go to waste! But I won't buy it again.

Wished this did something for my hair as I love the packaging and smell. But it offered no results. I have bleached, severely damaged hair.

I have straight, flat hair.

This product makes my hair shiny and noticeably fuller without adding frizz or fly-aways.

It costs $13.45 for a 10 oz bottle (Amazon), but since I only use one pump for my entire head (and only wash my hair about three times a week) it will last a really long time. (I'll try to provide an update when I've used it all.)

I love the smell; I can't quite place what it is but it reminds me of something candy-like from the 70's or 80's.

Love this product! I've been using this along with the deep repair mask and healing oil treatment for almost a year now. I put this in my hair after I shower and concentrate on the ends because it makes my hair feel super soft and look healthy!

I love this product.I mainly apply it on the ends of my hair because it makes them look healthy and shiny.

I'm really surprised how many bad reviews this product got. I bought a full Macadamia Kit - maybe four years ago - which included all the main products of this line, among them a 300 ml bottle of the Nourishing Leave-in Cream. I'm writing this review because i'm about to replace it; I've been using it almost daily and it lasted for about 4 years: I'd say this justifies the price already, regardless the beneficial effects it had on my hair.
I have rather fine, rather straight hair, but I don't feel that it weighs my hair down. After having put it onto my wet hair and let air dry, my hair feels much fuller, shinier, more nourished and softer; but not the static silky-soft way the Macadamia Nourishing oil tends to do. You can really feel that it contains natural oil.
I recommend the leave-in Cream to those who often have static, dry hair and whish to use a heavier cream that's really nourishing and gives body (not volume, though). For me a live safer especially in wintertime.
