Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque* - £14.40 Hairtrade (link)

I think by now if you are a regular reader of the blog you will know I am all for products which can be used in more than one way. I’ve already used a sachet of Macadamia’s Deep Repair Masque while on holiday in Zante and this product worked wonders on providing an instant hit of moisture in my hair. Obviously due to the heat and extremely hard water this product was an absolute saviour in preventing any further damage on my hair. This is the correct way to use the product – shampoo your hair, rinse and apply this – simple.

However back at home this doesn’t really work on a weekly basis – I’ll use this if I want to give my hair a good deep treatment (providing I’m not leaving the house). However my hair is prone to becoming too fine/flyaway or greasy really quickly. Now I have managed to find a way which you can get the maximum benefit for your hair from this minus the fine/flyaway/potentially greasy threats. Now this works wonders for me, and I use this technique every other wash and this has really helped sort my hair out (still no split ends after having it chopped).

I apply this to the ends of dry (yes dry) hair up to where my shortest layers are and also around my temples as I’m prone to hair snapping here. I normally leave this on my hair for up to 5 minutes before rinsing and then shampoo my hair as normal. I then follow this with Redken’s Extreme CAT Treatment Spray (review here) and then dry my hair. You will have noted that I don’t use conditioner when I use this – however this is a personal preference. Hands down I prefer the Macadamia range over Moroccan Oil and is more purse friendly. If you want any of the range the cheapest you can find it online is from Hairtrade and I’m sure that you can also pick this up in their store in the Metro Centre (upstairs next to Boots). Let me know if you’re a fan of alternative uses for a product.
