Product Review: Macadamia oil

Photobucket

This large 1oz sample was in my last new beauty test tube. I was so excited because the Moroccan oil I use (and buy) is only .8oz and costs $32! My initial thought was SCORE! I actually ran out of my Moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner around the same time and decided to just order the Macadamia oil brand shampoo and conditioner too as their price points were far less then the Moroccan oil.

EPIC FAIL!!! This stuff is horrible! At first I thought I used too much or maybe you shouldn't use all the products at the same time, but after trying 3 different washes with smaller amounts I still got the same result, GREASY HAIR! Not cool. I have thrown out the shampoo and conditioner and will try the oil one last time with different shampoo and hope that helps. I am back to buying Moroccan oil brand and it will take some work now to get me to defer again.
Has anyone else tried Macadamia oil? Did you have similar results or is it just me?

I bought this recently with my reward points at Ulta and have been using it when i shower at night, and my hair is pretty smooth when I wake up in the morning, so I am liking it thus far. However, I am also a huge fan of Morrocan Oil( they are one of our clients too!)

good to know. i am always a sucker for products, especially if they claim to have the same effects as a more expensive product! sometimes you really do get what you pay for, though!

We're sorry to hear about your experience with our products. We appreciate the time you took to write your honest review.

We noticed in the photos you took that you used our Nourishing Leave-In Cream, which is a leave-in product meant for unruly, hard-to-manage hair that is to be applied after you have washed and towel-dried your hair. If you have more normal-type hair, we recommend using our daily Moisturizing Rinse conditioner after shampooing your hair, which should cut down on the "greasy" feel you described.

We appreciate your willingness to try the Healing Oil Treatment again. If you let us know your hair type, we would be happy to have our expert hairstylist Michael Cain evaluate and recommend usage tips for your particular hair.

Many kudos to the representative that responded. Very professional. I personally love this stuff, I use the shampoo only cuz I'm so acne prone and I love it. Still makes my hair soft.
