Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit

Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit

14th February 2016

Macadamia is one of my favourite haircare brands, with their Macadamia Healing Treatment being my holy grail hair oil as it makes my hair grow so fast. I saw the Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit on the Feelunique website for £38.50, and it contained four full size products worth £81.65 so I had to snap it up especially as I have been dying to try more from the Macadamia Professional range. 

Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit

The Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit contains; the Macadamia Blow Dry Lotion, the Macadamia Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment, the Macadamia Style Extend Dry Shampoo and a Macadamia No Tangle Brush.

The Macadamia Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment is £32.50 and is a non-greasy, hydrating oil treatment which instantly absorbs into the hair and scalp, infusing moisture, softness, protection and shine. It contains the following key ingredients; – Macadamia Oil: which contains omega 7, 5 and 3 fatty acids which provide weightless moisture. – Argan Oil: contains omega 9 fatty acid which works to repair and strengthen the hair. – Vitamin E: hydrates and provides the hair with intense nourishment.

Not only does the Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit help nourish, tame and repair the hair, it also helps to reduce your blow drying time and it provides UV protection. The packaging is really nice, within a dark brown plastic bottle with a pump which dispenses the perfect amount of oil with one pump. To use the oil, I simply towel dry my hair and then work a £2 coin sized amount through my hair and then use my Wet Brush to detangle my hair before using my BaByliss Hairdryer.

The oil really is lightweight just like the original formula, and I can even apply the oil to my roots without it weighing my hair down and leaving it looking a little dull. Instead, it makes my hair super shiny and really does deliver on its claims to hydrate the hair, as well as making it very soft and manageable – it also cuts my blowdrying time down by nearly half which is amazing as my hair is so long and thick. I love the fragrance of the oil too, especially as the scent lingers in my hair and I sometimes add a 5 pence sized amount through my dry hair just to tame any pesky flyaways.

After using the Oil Treatment within the Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit, I then follow with the Macadamia Blow Dry Lotion which is £19.25 and is described as being a lightweight lotion that gives a smooth silky finish with added heat protection and it’s said to be suitable for all hair textures.

Key Benefits

– Smooths, eradicates frizz and resists humidity.
– Provides thermal protection.
– Delivers nourishing moisture with a non-greasy feel.
– Gives effortless brush glide when blow drying to reduce breakage.

Key Ingredients

– Macadamia Oil: Omega 7, 5 and 3 fatty acids provide weightless moisture.
– Argan Oil: Omega 9 fatty acids repairs and strengthens.
– Pistachio Oil: Protects against environmental extremes.
– Olive Oil: maintains colour and provides shine.
– Jojoba Oil: moisturises skin and hair.
– Coconut Oil: strengthens and fortifies the hair shaft.
– Hydrolyzed Rice Protein: Provides lightweight moisturisation & healing properties.
– Keratin Amino Acids: Provide lightweight moisturisation & healing properties.

Once I’ve worked the oil through my hair, I then apply a 50 pence sized amount of this lotion through my mid-lengths to ends and then brush it through before blow drying my hair. Sometimes I use a brush and try and blow dry my hair straight, but usually I dry my hair and then use my straighteners to smooth the hair, but with this Blow Dry Lotion I’ve found that it really does help to straighten my hair without using a brush but when I use a brush, it has even more of a straightening effect. 

Not only does it help to perfect my hair, and keep it as smooth as possible without using straighteners, it actually feels like it’s a conditioning treatment too and leaves my hair feeling incredible. I imagine you could just use this without the Oil Treatment, and it would give you the same results in terms of nourishment and protection.

The Macadamia Style Extend Dry Shampoo is £19.95 and is designed to absorb oil and product build-up, with hair being left feeling clean, revived and full of body with a natural finish. It is a translucent dry shampoo with is colour safe, and is suitable for all hair textures.

Key Benefits
– Absorbs excess oil, product build-up and odour.
– Instantly refreshes hair, leaving it looking and feeling clean and fresh.
– Blends with all hair colors, leaving no powdery residue.

Key Ingredients
– Macadamia Oil: Omega 7, 5 and 3 fatty acids provide weightless moisture.
– Argan Oil: Omega 9 fatty acid repairs and strengthens.
– Rice & Potato Starches: Absorbs excess oils & purifies hair.
– Volcanic Ash: Absorbs and traps oils, debris and odours.
– Passion Flower Extract: Provides antioxidant protection, and protects moisture balance.
– Aloe Vera Leaf Extract: Hydrates, smoothes and nourishes hair.

The Style Extend Dry Shampoo is incredibly easy to use.. you simply spray the hair around 8-10 inches away, focusing on the scalp and then wait a minute for it to work its magic and then use a brush to work it through the hair. I personally prefer to use my fingers to work the dry shampoo through my hair as I find it gives my hair extra body and shine.

I really didn’t expect to like this very much as my hair never gets greasy.. it’s the complete opposite, and its super dry so I rarely have the need for dry shampoo but this is more of a styling spray than a traditional dry shampoo but I like that it does perform like a traditional dry shampoo too by absorbing excess oil and refreshing the hair.

The last item in the Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit is the Macadamia No Tangle Brush £8.50 is specially designed to eliminate tangles and prevent hair breakage and split ends. The brush features an innovative ‘flex bristle’ design and gently glides through the hair whilst diffusing knots and tangles.

The No Tangle Brush minimises cuticle damage, hair breakage and split ends resulting in healthier, smoother hair. It’s pretty basic in its design, but it’s very effective at detangling my hair which gets knotty very easily as it’s so fine, and I really like that it has an handle too.

I think £38.50 is such an amazing price for this Macadamia Perfect Blow Dry Kit, especially when you consider you’re getting four full size professional haircare products. I really do love all four products, and really recommend this set…
