Hair in need of a pick-me-up?

When we ladies go out, we put lots of time & effort into our looks. We often plan our outfits a day (or more) ahead, usually know what we'll do with our makeup, and sometimes even know how we'll style our hair. Most of the time, our hair is the trickiest of them all.

Doesn't matter if my hair is long or short, I seem to always have split ends. If you have this problem, then you know how annoying it is. Split ends tend to dull your hair (not as shiny) and makes my hair look a little "wooly" (as my hairdresser would say). While I haven't found a cure for split ends, I have found something that makes my hair shiny & silky smooth, which is perfect for going out.

I recently had the chance to try the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. This was one of the items that I received in a recent swag bag that you can see here.

The directions say to comb through clean, wet hair and  let it penetrate for up to 7 minutes. Use no more than twice a week.

I've used it with and without conditioner (since it was the first time, so I didn't know!). Essentially, it didn't seem to make a difference if I used conditioner or not. Since I figured that out, I just forgo conditioner when I use this. 

The first time I used it, I didn't think I had enough in my hair so I added more, then I combed. That's when I realized that I had plenty! So remember to comb first, then add a bit more if needed.

My hair felt silky and had wonderful shine to it. It has a nice fresh smell to it. It's not over-powering by any means. I really like the smell.

Right now I'm using it about once a week and I've never received so many compliments on my hair!

*edit* Got my boyfriend to actually try it in his goatee. The end result? He said that it "didn't catch as much" while combing it and it felt a little softer than when he uses regular conditioner (which isn't too often to begin with)

You can purchase this product online or at a Trade Secrets. When this bottle is done, I'll be picking up another one for sure!

*While this product was not sent to me for review, I did receive it free as part of a gift bag. All opinions are my own.
