Macadamia Oil Treatment Offer

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque Treatment ONLY £ 5 when offered with any Cut & Blow Dry or Colour. 
I love hair products that contain argan oil in them because I truly do see how shiny and healthy they make mine & my clients' hair look. That’s the main reason that I was first drawn to the Macadamia hair products. I wanted to see if they matched up to some of the others that I’ve tried and to see if I would become a lifelong customer.

The Packaging

Every product comes in a brown bottle with a neon green top and brown and green label. I like the color combination because while the brown is soothing, the neon green is energizing so they balance each other out nicely. You’ll also find directions, ingredients and a little bit of information about what the product should do on each label.

Basic Information About The Macadamia Hair Products From The Company
Macadamia Natural Oil products meld lightweight and nutrient-rich properties of Macadamia nut and Argan seed oils to revitalize even the most problem hair, nourishing from root to tip for effortless health and beauty.

Problem hair is defined as:
  • Damaged (chemicals, wind, sun)
  • Frizzy
  • Dry
  • Colored, straightened, permed
  • Hard to manage
  • Tangled
  • Dull, lifeless
  • Brittle, not soft, lacking “touchability”
  • Out of control, wild
  • Thick, bushy
Macadamia Nut Hair Oil 

The hair oil is called the Macadamia Healing Oil Spray. It’s described by the company to be “an ultra fine mist that instantly absorbs into the hair, weightlessly infusing  moisture and shine”. They also say that it:
  • Provides intense nourishment
  • Long lasting tangle and frizz-free finish
  • Amazing shine and manageability
  • Instantaneous absorption
  • Light weight non-greasy feel
  • Extends color treatment life
  • Natural UV protection
The Macadamia nut hair oil reduces frizz greatly so that there is very little to no frizz at all. It also makes my clients' hair silky smooth and shiny which is always a plus especially with so much use of straighteners nowadays. A bonus to the oil is that it smells amazing. Very sweet but not overpowering. Now here’s a word of warning- do not spray the Macadamia nut hair oil directly on to your hair! Although it comes in a spray form and it does get absorbed quickly, if you’re not careful and spray too much you’ll end up looking like you’ve got greasy, unwashed hair. Of course, this warning goes for any hair oil, but still it has to be said because you don’t want to run back into the shower after you just got out. So go ahead and spray the oil onto your hands and gently run your fingers through your strands. You’ll still get the same great results without the worry.

Macadamia Oil Shampoo

The Macadamia oil shampoo is called the Rejuvenating Shampoo. The company says that “it’s designed to add moisture and protection to all hair types and is excellent for dry, damaged hair”. Some attributes are:
  • Sulphate and paraben free
  • Gently cleanses chemically treated, damaged hair
  • Replenishes moisture with no heavy build-up
  • Builds protection from harsh daily environmental elements
The Macadamia oil shampoo has the light fragrance of honeysuckle which I love because it takes me back to my childhood days when I ran around my back garden. It also builds into a nice, thick lather which I like. The shampoo rinses out easily and leaves my hair feeling clean and replenished.

Macadamia Conditioner
The Macadamia conditioner is called the Moisturizing Rinse. The company claims that “Our moisturizing rinse is a daily conditioner designed to nourish and detangle hair, leaving it manageable and ready to style”. Attributes are:
  • Gently detangle
  • Nourishes and protects
  • Leaves hair soft and manageable
  • Provides UV protection
The Macadamia conditioner is actually my favorite product in this review. My hair tangles very easily and it’s such a hassle to comb out a lot of times. The conditioner really detangles my hair and leaves it feeling smooth and soft. It leaves it lightweight and not at all greasy. It's fantastic for so many of my customers, especially after the winter months of central heating & cold weather.

If you want to purchase any of the above products then you can order them through me on 07859 050914

Autumn/WInter Hair Trends 2012

Here's a quick review of 2012 A/W hair trends...I love the femininity of them all!

WINDSWEPT - Dishevelled and matte in texture, windswept hair looks were in abundance at Rodarte, Vera Wang, John Galliano and Gianfranco Ferré, whilst at Marc Jacobs and Marios Schwab strands of the models' hair fell loosely in their faces as if blown by a gust of wind.
 RETRO - Vintage-looking twisted and pinned styles at Donna Karan and Valentino, Sixties bouffants at DSquared2 and Carolina Herrera and prim flicked bobs at Peter Jensen - retro hairstyles found their way onto catwalks in all four fashion capitals.
 PONYTAILS - They aren't exactly a new trend, we know, but ponytails were all over the catwalks once more for this season - sleek and worn lower than last autumn/winter's dominatrix styles please. Seen at Christian Dior, Chanel, Jonathan Saunders and Anna Sui.
 PLAITS, BRAIDS AND TWISTS - Romantic plaited looks were on show at Emilio Pucci and Mulberry, whilst a more urban take on the trend was seen at Fendi and Mark Fast, where plaits trailed over the models' shoulders. At Marc Jacobs the buns were plaited, whilst at Gucci and Valentino hair was twisted and pinned for a Pre-Raphaelite charm.
BALLERINA BUNS - Simple, neat and pretty, buns were seen at Stella McCartney, Diane von Furstenberg and Louis Vuitton, whilst at Marc Jacobs and Rick Owens they were plaited and twisted.

A Change of Brand (grab a bargain!)

I have listed these KaesoManicure Products on ebay, if you are interested you can bid on them here. 

Kaeso is a really lovely, delicious smelling brand of Salon/Spa quality products. However I have decided to change to SpaRitual to give my clients the best possible service and skincare.

SpaRitual is a luxury, vegan, eco-conscious spa brand that is organic and free from parabens, synthetic dyes, preservatives and petrochemicals. They contain organic, rare plant essences and are used all over the world throughout the finest spas and by celebrities alike.
As a SpaRitualist mobile nail technician, I have been fully trained & qualified and I want to offer the very best experience for my clients. Once you have had a SpaRitual Manicure you will find it very hard to go back to using any other brand. 
My Luxury Manicure involves a relaxing hand soak, hand and arm massage & gorgeous scrub masque with mitts. Indulgent & restorative.

There are more details of my Nail services on my new website...Simplicity Nails

Friday Inspiration

I am absolutely LOVING this style at the moment and being a fellow Curly myself, I am so glad to see it around right now. Straight hair has been in for so many years now that, although I'm biased, it's really refreshing to have some curls in the world.

These images are from the very enviable blog Hairdresser on Fire and I'm loving the braided up do too!
