How Macadamia Nut Oil Can Instantly Transform Your Hair

Macadamia Healing Oil Spray

A couple of weeks ago I went to the hair salon for a haircut. After styling and drying my hair, the stylist produced a 2-ounce spray bottle of macadamia nut oil and proceeded to apply a small amount to the ends of my hair. The stylist told me it would restore my chemically damaged and dry hair and leave it feeling smooth and silky. I usually scoff at the majority of products that claim to work miracles on my hair, but this product was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. I could instantly see and feel the difference. My hair was smooth and silky and felt incredible to the touch. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of leaving the salon without purchasing the macadamia nut oil, and I soon regretted it.

The next day, upon waking, my hair was still looking and feeling incredible. Instead of my hair feeling dry and sticking up all over the place, my hairstyle still resembled the look I had prior to going to sleep the previous evening, and it was still nice and soft to the touch. I couldn't keep my hands off of my hair. I realized I now needed to get my hands on this product and that I wasn't going to be able to live without it. I did some research on the benefits of using macadamia nut oil on the hair, and this is what I found.


Benefits of Using Macadamia Nut Oil on Hair

Macadamia Healing Oil Spray contains two essential oils, macadamia and argan. Macadamia oil is full of essential fatty acids and is almost identical to sebum, the natural oils that moisturize the hair. Argan oil contains unsaturated fatty acids and is instrumental in maintaining the strength of the hair. The combination of these two oils has amazing benefits on any hair, especially hair that is chemically treated, dry, frizzy, or over processed:

  • Nourishes, de-tangles, and smooths the hair, leaving it free of frizz
  • Instantly absorbs into the hair, light-weight, with absolutely no greasy feeling
  • No build-up on the hair, no matter how much of the product you use
  • Heals split ends, giving hair a much healthier appearance
  • When used before coloring the hair, extends the life of the color and reduces fading
  • Contains UV protection
  • When applied on damp hair, reduces the drying time by 40% to 50%
  • Leaves hair looking shiny, silky, and healthy
  • Smells incredibly good


Simple Directions to More Beautiful Hair

Macadamia Healing Oil Spray can be used on either damp or dry hair. By the way, it is also great for rejuvenating the scalp. For damp hair, simply spray a small amount on the hair and comb the product through the hair to evenly distribute. I also use a leave-in, spray-on conditioner, which also works great with this product. For dry hair, spray a small amount of product onto your fingertips and gently massage into the hair, concentrating on the ends. What I really love about this product when using it on dry hair is that it instantly absorbs into the hair, making my hair shiny, silky, and smooth. There is no greasy, weighted-down feeling, and, again, it also leaves my hair smelling awesome.

Where to Purchase This Product

I ultimately found this product at Ulta. A 2-ounce bottle costs $14.50, but because you only need a small amount of product, this 2-ounce bottle should last me quite awhile. In addition to hair salons, there are also many other places on the Internet that sell Macadamia Healing Oil Spray. I will probably elect to order online the next time, as I have found this exact product to be cheaper for purchase online.

Final Thoughts

I normally do not promote or recommend too many things; however, this product really produced some amazing results for me, and I really like it. Try Macadamia Healing Oil Spray on your hair just once. You will be surprised. I know I was!

It sounds good. I have heard people gush about Argan oil and how good it is for your hair so I suppose the combination of the two gives a greater result. I just might try it :)

I tried using Moroccan oil shampoo, but it left my hair very heavy and weighted down. I much prefer this. Thanks for visiting!

I have really wild hair that gets tangled no matter what. This seems like it could solve that problem and condition at the same time. Great suggestion! I will give this a try.

I really have a very bad hair. Probably I should try this oil. Thanks for telling about the product at the right time.

tammyswallow: I had been using this on my hair only after it was dry. Yesterday, I sprayed it on my damp hair and dried it. It was more tangle free while drying, actually did reduce the drying time, and I couldn't believe how silky my hair was. I think I prefer the product better on damp air. Due to my OCD, I couldn't resist slapping a little more on the ends after it dried. I love this stuff! I think you'll like it.

ytsenoh: I've been eating some trail mix. Does that count? :) You're welcome. Thanks for visiting.

sankari.nayagam: You're very welcome. Thanks for visiting. Try it, you'll like it!

Hi Diana, you're welcome. Keep me posted and let me know how it works. My hair is very fine, straight, and, like a lot of us gals, sometimes becomes over processed from dye, bleach, and other chemicals. However, this product is also good for anyone's hair, including men. Thanks for stopping by! :)

I like Hubs like this - tell you something hardly anyone knows. Most interesting that the oil in this is close to the natural oil in one's hair makes sense it would work then I suppose - - thanks for the tip HubTub!

I am a big fan of the Macadamia Oil Treatment this thing is amazing, before this product I used other Oils but left my hair all greasy, but not with the Macadamia one, I know it is expensive but a little bit goes a long way and it works amazing, thanks to this I have said goodbye to split ends.

HubTub 3 years ago from The Sunshine State Author

Hi, serendipityme, and thanks for stopping in to share your experience. I have to admit I was also reluctant at first to use any "oil" product on my hair, due to the fact that I, too, felt it would leave my hair greasy. That is why I love this product so much. It has so many benefits, and unlike other products out there, this product truly does work!

Lakaya 3 years ago

Wow...15.00 for 2 ozs? You got ripped off. For half that price you can get a 8 oz bottle of pure macadamia nut oil from the soap dish. Make your own product...cheaper. personally...I use it strait from the bottle.

HubTub 3 years ago from The Sunshine State Author

Hi, Lakaya! Thank you for dropping in to share your thoughts. Personally, I don't feel as though I got "ripped off." I am still using the same bottle I originally purchased over a year ago. A little of this product goes a long way. Secondly, I like the fact that this product doesn't leave my hair greasy. If I were to use macadamia nut oil in its pure form, I would surmise it would weigh down my hair, thus making me an unhappy camper. However, I am delighted to hear you have found a similar way of using macadamia nut oil that works for you!

Claire 2 years ago

You don't need to buy a minuscule bottle of macadamia nut oil for exorbitant prices. You can buy 1LT bottles of organic macadamia nut oil for roughly the same price as the small spray bottle you purchased.

I buy mine in bulk for around 20.00 per 1LT bottle from a soap and essential oil supplier. There are tons of them online you can purchase from.

After I wash my hair, I don't condition. I put a few drops of straight Macadamia Nut Oil in the palm of my hands, rub them together, and pluck it through the ends, then gently comb my hair out with a wide toothed comb.

Pretty simple, very cost effective, and my hair loves me for it.

Hi, Claire:

Thank you for stopping by to share your thoughts. I am glad to know that you're also a believer in the use of macadamia nut oil and that you are experiencing great results with the use of it.

I suppose everyone has their preferred method as to how they purchase their products. Thank you for sharing your own tip with myself and others.
