macadamia natural oil review + giveaway

***this is a sticky post, please scroll down for new entries.

When I hear the word “Macadamia” the first thing that comes to mind are yummy nuts covered in chocolate. I never really associated it with hair and I was pretty ignorant about its many benefits until several days ago when I was invited to be a “Macadamia Muse” and try the full range of Macadamia Natural Oil hair products at Piandre in BGC.

 To my surprise and delight, I found out that Macadamia Oil is nutrient rich and one of the best oils to apply onto your hair to keep it soft, healthy, and manageable. Better yet, it’s more affordable than its popular counterpart – Argan Oil and yet it carries pretty much the same benefits (if not more).

 The actual event was kept pretty small and intimate because the people behind Panzu (distributors of Macadamia Natural Oil in the Philippines) wanted it to be a personal experience for us.  They transformed the interiors of Piandre into a “Macadamia Natural Oil Salon” complete with experts and consultants roaming the place and offering their advice as to which treatments and products are best suited for our needs.

 We were given a choice of 4 treatments:
  • Damaged No More Treatment – starts with the Rejuvenating Shampoo + Deep Repair + Healing Oil Treatment; a quick fix for dry, damaged, and/or chemically processed hair. It brings back hair's natural shine and beauty.
  • Never Again, Unruly Hair Treatment – starts with the Rejuvenating Shampoo + Nourishing Leave-In Treatment + Healing Oil Treatment. Perfect for those with dry, coarse and unruly hair who want to bring back lost shine and elasticity.
  • I'm Salon Beautiful Treatment – starts with Flawless + Healing Oil Treatment + Control Hair Spray/Reviving Curl Cream. Best for those who want big beautiful curls or waves.
  • Hot and Protected Treatment – starts with Rejuvenating Shampoo + No Tangle + Healing Oil Treatment. This treatment was specially created for hair that has gone through a lot of heat exposure via blow dry and flat iron.

 Because of my hair extensions + almost monthly hair dye sessions, I was advised to avail of the Damaged No More Treatment.

 The whole treatment was basically about an hour of pure pleasure…(I don’t really remember why I have a funny face in this photo, I think I was chatting with someone when I shot this but it’s the only one I got so…:P). Heaven at the salon began with an ultra relaxing shampoo + massage experience using their Rejuvenating Shampoo.
That was soon followed by a generous application of their deep repair healing oil treatment which stayed on for about 30 minutes while I simultaneously enjoyed pretty much the best head, shoulder and back massage I’ve ever experienced in a chair!
I swear I wanted it to go on forever but I needed to give way to the other muses so I reluctantly obliged when I was told that it was time to blow dry.
After some minimal effortless styling, I was wowed by the result:

Not only did my hair smell super fantastic, it was also the softest its felt in years…very, very close to virgin hair. It was silky, it slipped through my fingers smoothly like gentle ripples in melted butter yet it was not greasy at all! In the end, it was hard to tell where my real hair ended and my extensions began. It did more than a fantastic job of moisturizing my hair follicles, repairing my tips and making it the shiniest it’s ever been in a long time.
I absolutely love these products and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quick fix for common hair problems. Macadamia Natural Oil’s hair products allow you to have ultra-manageable, fuss-free, perfect hair every day of the week with minimal time and styling effort.

My hair is really dry and sensitive to harsh shampoos and conditioners. Macadamia Natural Oil is perfect for my hair because it is nutrient rich, very natural and one of the best oils to apply onto my hair to keep it soft, healthy, and manageable. and most of all it is more affordable.

Macadamia Natural Oil is perfect for my hair because it will keep it looking healthy, shiny and soft all day long. It would be the perfect treatment to my fragile hair strands and maybe it could add the voluminous effect I always wanted. And one more thing, I love using natural products.

I love eating macadamia. And now I learn it's good for the hair too?! This is perfect for me as I have dry hair and I love trying natural products that can give me that easy-to-manage healthy hair without all the fuss (and without the grease)!

My skin type is classified as combination, and believe it or not, so is my hair! My scalp is prone to oiliness if it gets really hot, whereas the mid-length and ends of my hair tend to be really dry. Macadamia Natural Oil would be perfect for my hair because I know it'll nourish my hair from root to tip to make it look and feel shiny, smooth, and healthy! I'm confident Macadamia Natural Oil will keep my scalp oil-free and the rest of my hair soft and silky to the touch.

Why is Macadamia Natural Oil perfect for my hair?Because having a natural curly hair needs a lot of tender, love and care, also lots of moisturizing, love that it has argan oil that is very helpful to my hair.

My hair is not in a healthy state right now. It's very dry because of the treatment I recently had for dandruff and skin asthma and after reading that this is a quick fix to common hair problems and can moisturize immensely, I believe that this may be the answer to my search. So, I am hoping to win this and try it out.

Macadamia Natural Oil is perfect for my hair because it would be able to renew my hair's natural texture and leave it fully moisturized due to the hair coloring that I have had done on my hair.

After lots of chemical treatment, my hair isn't something you can call healthy. It's dry, coarse, and prone to breakage. Macadamia Natural Oil is perfect for my hair if what you claim it does is true. I really need to help my hair specially now that I only have 3 weeks before going to college. Please choose me. I need this for my hair. They're the perfect match!
