Product Review: Organix Macadamia Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment
First I want to aplogize for not posting in 2 weeks, I knew it had been a while but I didn't realize that it had been THAT long. That may be because I stretched my last wash day out for 2 weeks since I had used heat.
Any back to the business at hand.
Organix Macadamia Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment is said to be an ultra-moisturizing formula provides deep conditioning.
On a scale from 1-10, I would rate it an (drum roll please...) ONE!!!!!!!!!!
Rant begins here -> First off, it's my own fault, I should have went with the reviews...upon research you will find more "meh, it's more like a regular conditioner than a deep treatment" and "It made my hair hard" reviews than the "Good stuff" reviews and there were absolutely NO "AWESOME PRODUCT" reviews.
Still I thought, my hair isn't too picky, I was genuinely curious...why??? I don't know.
Well looking further, I was more turned off that Macadamia nut oil was the twelth ingredient. Though I prefer my main ingredient of interest to be within the top 5 ingredients, I let another hairlista convince me that 13 was not bad either (13 out of like 24 ingredients tho???).
So I went to Whole Foods and picked up my own Mac Nut to add to it.
Now upon opening the product (which crazy me, I didn't open it until I got home) I found the product to be a bit thin, to be considered a "masque", it really seemed more like a regular "leave in for 3 minutes then rinse" conditioner. Still I proceeded, added about 1 tablespoon of Mac Nut, stirred and began to apply to my hair like a relaxer...
OMG I went to sleep, let it sit over night. Taking the plastic cap off that morning I should have known it was a fail. My hair was so stiff, WITH the conditioner on...so I got in the shower and rinsed it off...still my hair was hard :-( I tried detangling in the shower and literally all I heard was "snap crackle POP".... NEVER have I EVER, experienced any breakage when detangling under running water :-(
I didn't even finish detangling, I got out, towel blotted my hair, added my leave in thinking that would help detangle...NOPE! My hair was just to freaking hard, I just couldn't sit through the madness anymore. I ended up, cowashing all over again, and doing a hot oil treatment for another 8 hours. After rinsing the H.O.T (hot oil treatment- lol, I tried making it an acronym only to see that it literaly spelled out hot and many may not realize that I was trying to talk in text) lol, my baby was back, super soft, detangled in the shower not problem, just such a relief!!
Needless to say Organix was a huge disappointment :-(
