I have combination hair, where my scalp is oily and hair quite dry. It is a weird combination to have for your hair. And I find it so difficult to find he right kind of products for my hair that keep it balanced. Luckily for me, I have found the perfect shampoo, which is the Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo (read my full review here). As far as conditioning my hair goes, I am yet to find the perfect one. Every now and then I try to deep condition my hair as they have become very rough with all the colouring and heat application by way of blow drying and curling. I rarely oil my hair. I know its supposed to make your hair better but I feel my hair falls A LOT when I oil it and it requires me to wash my hair two or even three times to get rid of the oil. So I use deep conditioning hair masks to keep my hair soft and moisturized.
I bought this Macadamia Deep Repair Masque on a whim, the very next day after I got my hair coloured, as everyone at my work place told me that my hair is looking extremely rough. This masque comes in this huge tub of 250 ml. it has a very thick consistency. I love its fragrance. It contains Omega 3, 5 and 7. It is ideal for dry, damaged hair.
What the brand says:
“Macadamia Oil mimics your scalp’s natural oil production to revitalize dry, damaged and color-treated hair of all textures. Hair’s natural texture is instantly renewed with healthy shine, bounce and manageability.”
In my opinion, it does not contain any natural ingredients, except obviously macadamia oil and is full of chemicals. Having said that, my hair feels very soft and manageable after I use this.
To use: liberally comb through clean, wet hair and allow upto 7 minutes of penetration before rinsing, no heat necessary. For best results, use twice a week.
I have used it this way, but found that it weighs my hair down. I feel that it works best when applied for a longer time. I brush through my dry hair and apply the masque for about 1-2 hours and then rinse my hair with shampoo. I do not use a conditioner that day, but still my hair feel very soft and the fragrance stays for almost an entire day. I apply it once a month.
