Review: Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque

I bought this deep hair masque as part of a gift set back in May (haul post) and have been using it on average twice a week.  Now I pretty much have half a tub left but that's because I use a generous amount every time.

The consistency:
It's thick but not as thick as regular hair conditioners.

The scent:
Smells fruity and reminds me of candy.  The scent is pretty strong when applying it and after you rinsing it out.  It could last over a day in your hair though, so if you don't like the scent, then you might not like the scent lasting too long in your hair.

I've tried applying it with heat and without heat.  The instructions say that heat is not required but personally, I think applying heat works better.  Basically, every other time I go to the gym and if I have time to spare, I'd leave the masque in my hair after shampoo and conditioning, hop in the sauna for 7 minutes and rinse it out after.

What is claims to do:
"Our Macadamia and Argan oils combine with tea tree and chamomile oils, aloe and algae extracts to produce miracle-like hair rejuvenation."

I wouldn't say this deep masque can do wonders nor can it miraculously revive my hair but it does noticeably tame down the frizzes after a few uses - so not on the first try.  Though you can feel a difference after the first use.  So if you're unsure of the product and don't want to splurge out the $28 CAD for the 250mL tub, I'd recommend on buying the sample package.  I believe they're still a bit pricey - $4.99 - but better than spending $28 to know it doesn't work for you.  Also, it looks to me that the ends of my hair seem less like straws of hay.  It still looks a bit dry but not as bad.  It does give the smooth, soft hair feeling.
