I feel my hair has taken the toll of all the hair color and treatment I had in the past. So, when I was invited to try out the Macademia Natural Oil treatment at Straight and Smooth Salon last week, I was more than willing, my hair needed some pampering ASAP! I have no idea what kind of treatment I was getting but I was sure that it will be good for my hair since Macademia Natural Oil would ring-a-bell of being good because of the three words in it 1)macademia nut which is yummy and healthy, 2) natural that being said I assume there will be no harmful chemical and 3)oil as I’d rather have hot oil treatment to keep a healthy hair than any other hair treatment.
So here was our venue, Straight and Smooth Salon at Legaspi Village Makati. This salon is actually run by the owners of Piandre salon and is also the training venue for their hairstylist and staff.
Inside the salon
What is Macademia Natural Oil?
Macadamia Natural Oil is made of Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil. Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and Omega 9 which helps damaged and over processed hair. It also helps abused hair which have been exposed to heat and pollution. Onthe other hand, Macadamia Oil is rich in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants. It has the same almost the same qualities of the oil found in our body which is why it is easily absorb by the hair.
This are the products they will use for my treatment (Left the Healing Oil and right is the Deep Repair Mask). Actually these products can be purchased at the salons too and you can do the treatment by yourself at home as well as you don’t need to use the hot air steam for this!
Macadamia Natural Oil’s Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic oil that can be used for all types of hair but it is highly recommended to those who have dry hair, chemically damaged hair, tangled hair and frizzy hair. It makes hair more manageable at is reduces time of drying hair up to 40%-50%.It also makes hair softer, shinier, easier to style and provides protection against the sun and from harsh daily environment elements. It also enhances and lengthens the color life of the hair.
Macadamia Natural Oil’s Deep Repair Masque is a product that brings back the life and beauty of damaged or chemically processed hair. It has a kombinasyon of Macadamia, Argan, Tea Tree and Chamomile and essence of Aloe and Algae. It gives back the hair’s life, shine and good condition.
The Rejuvinating Shampoo provides protection for all types of hair but is most effective on dry and/or chemically processed hair. It gently cleanses chemically treated and damaged hair. It replenishes moisture with no heavy build up and builds protection from harsh daily environmental elements.
On the other hand, the Moisturizing Rinse is a daily conditioner that nourishes the hair and helps with the daily management of the hair. It gently detangles hair leaving it soft and manageable. It also provides UV protection.
Both Rejuvinating Shampoo and Moisturizing Rinse are color safe, paraben-free and sulfate-free that is why it is very healthy for the hair.
What we did to my hair was a combination of both Healing Oil Treatment and Deep Repair Masque. They first shampooed my hair using the Macadamia Natural Oil’s Rejuvinating Shampoo then towel dried it. Then a combination of the healing oil treatment and deep repair masque was massaged into my hair. It was combed through to ensure even distribution and then a shower cap on my hair so that my hair while leaving it for 30 minutes so it can absorb the treatment better.
I enjoyed the hair and back massage while we were waiting for the 30 minutes. They said this was the replacement or the alternative treatment to the usual Hair Spa offered in other salons. After 30 minute they rinsed my hair, blow dried and styled as I like to.
I was informed that I can have the treatment at least twice a week only, more than that is not recommended.
By the way, I was with Kim during that salon visit, luckily we scheduled the visit the same time so I have a salon chika buddy. She had the Straight and Smoothening Macademia treatment it was similar to the rebond/straigh treatment but the best part was this uses Macademia Natural Oil so less chemical and less harmful to the hair.
- The treatment gave the life back of my hair, it’s much softer and smoother and less dry.
- I love that it also made my hair color stand-out.
I do. If you don’t have time for a salon then I recommend you buy the masque and the oil at the salon and do the treatment by yourself at home during your free time.
