Ok so here’s the deal. Macadamia Flawless*; a mousse-like formula that claims to work as an all-in-one cleansing and conditioning step, refining hair texture, making styling that little bit easier and cutting down on drying time. You just slap it on damp hair, massage through the scalp and lengths, rinse it out and hey presto – sort of like a one-stop shop for hair in a bottle. No need for anything else; the Argan and Macadamia Oils work to nourish and the surfactant and paraben-free formula does the rest. It’s all a bit bizarre really and unlike anything I’ve ever whipped through my locks, but the question is: is it weird or wonderful?
Well I think I have to conclude that it’s sort of wonderful. Yes it feels very strange to slap on a mousse in the shower and the lack of suds feels a little alien to my hairwash routine but my hair felt clean, smooth post blow-dry and the whole process took about three minutes to execute. I’m not so sure on the cutting down on drying time claim – but it delivers on the rest of its promises. The only downside is that a minute too long massaging it in means I lose a day before I have to wash it again. Damn. But a quick ‘in-out’ application fixes this.
It’s currently on sale at FeelUnique for £20.60 – not the cheapest of options, but for the time-strapped among us it’s a gem that it may just be worth investing in.
