Sample Review: Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque!

Today is a quick sample review of the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque that’s been kicking about in my haircare drawer for a while now before I pulled it out and committed to using it. I’ve declared my love for Macadamia’s detangling hairbrush before so I was excited to see if this would stand up to the high regard I have for the brand.

Sample Review: Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque!

The sample I had was a generous 15ml but I was a little worried as my hair is thick and long. I needn’t have been. It was just enough. The consistency was like a thick gloopy cream but it spread evenly to cover all of my hair.

Now the instructions are pretty simple; wash your hair then comb this through and leave for seven minutes. So I did this, clipped my hair up and read in the bath for maybe ten minutes before rinsing this out. It needed a good rinse. I stood under the shower for quite a while and that’s always something I’m worried about with these types of things because if you don’t rinse long enough then your hair is left greasy and if you rinse too long then there’s nothing to show for it. I was pretty sure I had rinsed too long but lo’ and behold, the next day when I let my hair out of my plait it looked incredible. It was super soft and shiny, and just felt and looked amazing. A+ results!

I’m also in love with it being cruelty-free, paraben-free and alcohol-free. All in all, I’m probably going to buy this! If you want to try it, you can buy it here!

Have you tried a hair masque? What’s your favourite?

Beauty Review: O’Right Golden Rose Colour Care Conditioner!

Hello October! How is it October already? I don’t even know, but lets start the month right with a review!
O’Right is a brand I wasn’t aware of until I was sent the O’Right Golden Rose Colour Care Conditioner* to review but after a good read of their website I was head over heels for their ethics. In fact, when I am finished (nearly there) with this bottle of conditioner, I can plant it, the bottle will decompose and the seed of a tree in the bottom will begin to grow. And that’s just really cool!

But enough about the bottle. This conditioner claims to hydrate and add shine, preserve hair colour and give it a radiance boost. Personally I haven’t coloured my hair but I am worried about it’s condition as I plan to chop it all off and donate it to the Little Princess Trust soon. I want it to be the best it can be!

So does it work? In a nutshell, yes. It’s a thin consistency and is a little tricky to work with at first but if you squeeze all the water you can from your hair before applying then it is easy enough and the smell is a non-offensive floral/fresh scent. After using it for a couple of months now my hair feels sleeker and both looks and feels better when my hair is dry. Breakage is less and thankfully the sleekness means I’m not yanking out hair with my hairbrush. My hair is now all the way down to my lower back and this conditioner helps it feel its best.

It is pretty pricey at £18.95 for a 400ml bottle but for a Vegan product with the added bonus of a tree, it’s a nice treat that you can find here!

What do you think of the O’Right brand? Do you have any conditioner recommendations for me?

The Battle of the (Hair)Brushes!

Tangle Teezers, No Tangles, Tangle Angels. When it comes to these detangling hair brushes that are everywhere it’s hard to know which one is the right one for you and your hair type, so I thought I’d do a little comparison post of the three I’ve tried that are all around the same price range.

So let’s see how these three compare, shall we?

The Tangle Teezer
Now I bought this so long ago. It was literally in my first haul on my old blog which means this baby has lasted over two years and is still going strong! It was my first try with detangling brushes and left me liking them, but not loving them. I stuck with it though and kept using it until I was presented with something better.
My main problem with the Tangle Teezers is the shape, it doesn’t fit my hand comfortably and the design of it lets in water and lets out water all over laptops sometimes which was fixed with the Aqua version but I just want a handle on my hairbrush, call me old fashioned.
It detangles fine, and I think it’s really good for people with normal to thick because the bristles are quite long and firm.

These are found at Boots and they have a variety of colours you can check out here ranging from about £10.99 to £12.49.

The Macadamia No Tangle Brush*
My personal favourite! This is the best of the three for me, it has a handle and long sturdy bristles for my thick hair. It’s solid but the lightest which means no tired-brushing-arm, and comes in my favourite colour- green. It can get through wet and dry hair with no problem and is the only one I reach for these days. It’s only downfall is that the name which was on the back, rubbed off after continued use but that really doesn’t matter.

These are on Look Fantastic and come in the Green/Brown version I have with a 10ml of oil for £14.25 here and a bright pink for £9.95 here.

The Tangle Angel**
Now I’ll admit, when I first saw this I was like- wow. It’s a pink angel shaped brush, which isn’t quite to my taste but I have a friend who loved the look of it so that just shows that taste is subjective. But I wasn’t a fan of this brush, the bristles were just a little too flimsy and a little too short for my hair which is slightly on the thicker side and wavy, it just couldn’t reach all my hair. Although I did love that it had a handle.
This would be great for kids, I hated having my hair brushed when I was little but if my brush was kind on my hair which this is, and shaped like a pink angel I think I would’ve sat down and been quiet.

These are found at Look Fantastic in a assortment of colours for all your angel shaped hairbrush needs here around the price of £9.95 to £12.95.

So in conclusion, The Tangle Teezer might be easier to find in stores and preferable if you prefer a hand-held brush, but I’d recommend The Macadamia No Tangle Brush especially with it being on sale right now, but if you have thinner hair or kids then The Tangle Angel might be a good choice!

Do you have any of these? Which is your favourite?

The Tangle Angel** was a PR product. The Macadamia No Tangle Brush* was received at an event. This has not changed my opinion on either product and I am not obliged to show them on my blog.
