Marc Anthony Repairing Macadamia Oil

The Repairing Macadamia Oil collection is formulated with Macadamia Oil, an extra lightweight oil with a similar consistency to natural body oils that easily penetrates the cuticle for deep hydration. Coupled with bamboo extract, it is a strengthening and restorative duo for damaged, lifeless hair. Bamboo extract contains protein which helps retain moisture in the hair shaft and assists in filling and smoothing the roughened cuticle of damaged hair. A rich source of silica, it has incredible strengthening properties for hair. The Repairing Macadamia Oil collection is truly luxury hair care!

Since I was so happy with Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil products - they truly helped my dry and damaged hair! - I was super excited to try this new collection! 

The thick but lightweight Repairing Macadamia Oil Shampoo ($9.99 for 250ml / 8.4 fl.oz) helps to correct damaged, dull looking hair and revives damaged strands - I was impressed at how quickly it softens hair and reveals a natural luster. The best part? It is safe on color! Because this shampoo feels so moistirizing, I feel like it really protects my color from fading more than many other shampoos specifically desined for color-treated hair I have tried. It is claimed that bamboo extract helps to strengthen the hair follicle to promote stronger, healthier hair growth., which I am curious to see if it will work with continuous use. I also really like the ultra nourishing Repairing Macadamia Oil Conditioner ($9.99 for 250ml / 8.4 fl.oz), which intensely moisturizes and revitalizes dry, overworked hair. The formula is  lightweight enough to never weight my hair down, but it is thick enough to coat it just like a hair mask. 

I was curious to see how the Repairing Macadamia Oil Treatment ($9.99 for 50ml / 1.69 fl.oz) would compare to the Argan Oil Treatment, which leaves my hair extremely soft, smooth, shiny and tangle-free, and you know what? I actually think the Macadamia Oil one works even better! It is less runny in texture - more like a gel - and it penetrates quickly to combat damage and dryness on a daily basis. It is advised to apply 1 - 3 drops (depending on hair length and thickness) to damp or dry hair, but I only need one drop on my shoulder-length hair, so this little bottle will definitely last me a long time! I prefer to apply the treatment on dry hair before going to bed to wake up to super smooth and shiny hair. Oh, and let's not forget the intoxicating exotic smell that I just can't get enough of - yummmm!

I absolutely love how all of the Repairing Macadamia Oil products are both lightweight and rich at the same time, which makes it perfect for just about everyone!
