It's an okay oil, the thing that bothers me the most is the price. There aren't that many good ingredients in this product. The very first ingredient is dimethicome which does nothing beneficial for the hair. Paying $40 for this is crazy, especially when you can get 16 ounces of pure macadamia oil at a vitamin shop for half the price that works a lot better, in my opinion.

This is one of the most expensive hair treatments I have ever bought. It retails for about $36-$40 here in Canada but it was on sale during the holiday season for half off so I grabbed one to try. I have used about 1/3 of the product so far and it lasts for a really long time. I liked it so much I grabbed another back up just in case and it was half off anyways. You don't need very much: about a dime size & it doesn't make the hair look greasy either.
It has a really nice musky scent to it and it has made my damaged, colored hair so much softer and smoother. I have used it two ways: one by itself and the other way is adding it to my conditioner for a more deep treatment. Both ways worked really well and my hair feels super soft to the touch after the shower. The thing i love the most about the product is that it makes my hair dry a lot faster which is one of its claims. This is great since it takes forever for me to blow dry my long hair so it speeds the process a little bit. It has definitely become one of my hair essentials and I would definitely repurchase.
What it claims on the website:
* Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
* Hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
* Natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
* Reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%

I have this healing oil in the spray bottle form and love this product. I use it before blow drying my hair and I feel not only does it cut down on drying time, but it keeps my fly away hairs and frizz under control and gives my hair a beautiful shine without looking too overdone and greasy. The way this stuff smell is heavenly, I can still smell it the next day after using it. I definitely recommend this!

This is the first hair product I've bought in a long time that really has made a noticeable difference to my hair. I have long blonde hair that is fine but I have a ton of it. As a result it's prone to frizz, flyaways, static, tangles..yeah fun. This oil tames it nicely and leaves it soft and silky. My hair sucks up moisture like crazy, almost porous like. I find I do need at least two good pumps of this to evenly distribute in my hair. I use it midway to the ends and use it on both damp hair and dry hair. I love the smell!! It's delicious and I could smell it all day long lol.
Although its pricey it does last a long time even for someone like me whos hair "sucks up" product like this. Just having less frizz and tangles and having my hair so soft and "tame" makes it worth the money spent. When I first saw the price I went "no way!" ($36.00 at SDM) but once I tried the tester I was sold. I went home that day and couldn't believe how awesome my hair looked and felt! I'd been very upset with my hair after highlighting my naturally blonde hair. It was dried out, frizzy and just blah. This stuff has breathed life back into it. I'm going to repurchase when I do run out which I think will be months from now. Even with long, porous hair I only need 2 pumps and I think most people would only need 1 pump. Buy this and treat yourself! Btw, a friend of mine who swears by Moroccon oil tried this and thinks its better then her Moroccan oil and plans on buying this when she runs out. It's good stuff!!
ETA: ok not sure if I got an old bottle but a couple months after purchasing it smells funky!! I've kept it in my cupboard out of light and extreme temps so I cannot figure out why it suddenly smells gross. I'm going to contact the company. For the cost of this product there's no way it should be rancid already. Not happy. I took off a few lippies because I still have 3/4 of a bottle that's useless. The receipt is long gone so I hope the company reimburses or replaces this. I'll edit to update.

Believe the hype! This is really amazing.
A thick silicony liquid, does not feel oily. My hair feels so soft after using this. Gets rid of frizz. Very very good product.
The only thing is the fragrance could have been more girly, fruity maybe. The scent is kinda musky, unisex.

I used it 3x at my local hairdresser. I have to say this stuff is liquid gold. My hair feels slippery, soft and non-greasy. I have relaxed afro hair and it tends to be super dry but with this paired with keracare products is dynamite. The only downfall is the price, with a staggering RRP of £60 not everyone can afford it however for me it's a definite staple in my hair care regime. You get what you pay for!

I bought this over a year ago, because my hairdresser recommended it to me.
My hair is naturally dry and quite frizzy, but this worked WONDERS! I like the smell too.
It makes my hair softer and more sleek.
It also lastet me a hole year (a had the 125 ml), cause you don't need much!
I will recommend this, but i don't think I will buy it again because of the price. But if not I find anything cheaper and as good as this, I will go back to it.

Well, it's for me a medium-good hair-oil. It's not the best nor the worst.

I really enjoyed this oil! My hair gets really frizzy in humid weather and it usually loses its curl, so I decided to use this product to help keep my hair shiny and curly, but not frizzy. I used about a dime amount and applied it to my hair, mostly focusing on the ends but applying a little to my roots as well. If you apply too much to your roots, your hair will feel very heavy and it'll look greasy. I made this mistake when I first purchased the product.
I also love the smell and packaging. I found that just a dime-sized amount lasts me the whole day in the humidity. It's a little pricey but I love this product and I'll definitely be purchasing more!

I recently got a haircut that is a tragedy. As such, I've been trying different hair products to try and turn it into something manageable. I've been wanting to try the Macadamia Natural products for a very long time and figured now would be a good opportunity. I purchased a 1oz bottle of this from eBay for $3 so, obviously, I can't factor the price into my review. I've used tons of hair oils in the past - drugstore, high-end, specialty and everything in between. This one is my favorite. It doesn't leave my hair heavy or greasy, it's light, absorbs quickly and makes my hair insanely soft and shiny. It smells good, slightly spicy and musky. You only need very little for each use. I've actually gotten a ton of compliments on my hair since I started using these products. I will definitely purchase a larger size bottle when I eventually finish this one.
