Oh no.. oh no, no, no! Please do me a favour and don’t waste your time or your money on this product.
Let me start by saying that I love Macadamia Hair. The Deep Repair Masque, Healing Oil Spray, and the Nourishing Leave-in Cream are all well loved staples of my hair care routine. Unfortunately this product just doesn’t do it for me.
Flawless claims to be an innovative 6 in 1 product that cleanses, conditions, reduces blow-drying time, detangles, enhances volume and eliminates frizz in one product. Apparently hair is left revitalized with healthy shine, bounce and manageability. I sense an over-achiever here…
The idea behind this product (combining shampoo and conditioner into a one stop shop) isn’t new. Behold the “cleansing conditioner”. While brands like Wen have made this product combination well known, it is really something that is just plain reminiscent of Pert. You know Pert. The ol 2 in 1… My dad uses Pert.
The packaging is nice, although I’m not entirely sure why I want my shampoo to be in an aerosol container.. After working the product through your hair, it says to let it soak in for about 5 minutes. The main problem I have with this product is that it didn’t cleanse my hair at all. In fact it felt like I was left with a build up, or a coating to the hair. Basically, I washed my hair and it was left looking greasy… Not sure about you, but if I’m spending 5 minutes dedicated to hair in the shower, I want to come out looking like those fancy bishes in a Pantene commercial.
I can’t speak for the reduction in blow-drying time, as I let my hair air dry. Sure it detangled, but there was not a smidge of volume in sight.
I really wanted to love this product. I absolutely love all the other products in the Macadamia Hair line, and while I can appreciate the idea, at the end of the day there’s a reason why hair care products are created for different purposes. You’re better off sticking to individual products and using them as needed.
If you have very dry hair, maybe this product would work for you. I have oily hair and this sure ain’t for me. If you’re after an incredible shampoo, try Lush’s Big. It’s fantastic for oily haired gals.
