Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Flat Iron Experts, Hair care products review

My hair is naturally curly, and like most women, I don’t like it as well as when I straighten it.  It’s great when I am short on time or feeling lazy, since I can throw some gel in it and go. But I prefer to straighten it.

My hair is very dry anyway, but after straightening it almost daily you can imagine how dry it is.  Add to that the highlights I get occasionally, and sometimes it just looks so fried.  I have found very few hair products that truly moisturize the way I want without making my hair go from being dry to greasy (ugh).


When I told them about my hair type, Flat Iron Experts sent me some amazing products to try!  I received the Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo and Deep Repair Mask, as well as the Liquid Texture Firm Finishing Spray.

First I tried the Liquid Texture Firm Finishing Spray.  I don’t really ever use hairspray; I am blessed to not need it.  However, I did use this a few times just to see how it worked.  It smells really good, which I was glad about.  Sometimes the hairsprays literally choke me with the smell they are so overpowering, but this is not. This spray also held well!  I didn’t use a ton, but my hair held well without getting stiff.  It can be used for wet or dry styling, has UV protection, and drys quickly.  I think my mom is going to love this. :)

I couldn’t wait to try the Macadamia oil shampoo and deep repair mask.  I was curious to see if they’d really moisturize my hair well without making it greasy.

Macadamia Oil Natural haircare products combine two of the worlds rarest, most valuable oils to provide the ultimate in hair rejuvenation and maintenance.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo is color safe, sulfate free and paraben free. It has a clean, floral scent to it that I really like.  This shampoo didn’t lather as well as I expected or as some of the other shampoos do, so I felt like I needed to use a bit more than I normally would. However, I learned that the amount of bubbles makes no difference in how well the shampoo is ‘cleaning’, and it actually shows that surfectants (cleaning agent in shampoo) are not being used to clean away the dirt and oil, but are being used by the air bubbles instead. The foam that is created with a lather is the surfectant molecules gathering around air instead of dirt and oil. SO, as long as you have enough lather to lubricate your scalp and hair, you’re good!  It definitely made my hair feel clean without feeling stripped of it’s natural moisture (what little I have), and rinsed out clean as well.

Next, the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Mask.  This has a combination of macadamia oil and argan oil along with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts.  These ingredients rejuvenate and rebuild hair, leaving the hair deeply nourished for improved elasticity and shine with long-lasting conditioning benefits.
The first thing I noticed was how amazing it smells!  Not only did it smell great in my hair, but it made my hair smell amazing for long after!  The directions say to keep it on for 7 minutes.  I am sure I didn’t keep it on that long; after all, I’ve learned to shower in record time with having 4 kiddos. But I did leave it on while I soaped up and shaved- and tried to wait a bit longer afterward- so I’d say at least 4-5 minutes.  It rinsed out easily- unlike some conditioners that seem to take forever to rinse- and my hair felt great!  It’s not a conditioner that can be used daily, however.  This is a deep repair mask which is not to be used more than 2 times a week. 

After using it for a couple of weeks now, I can truly say I feel like my hair is much less dry.  I recently got my hair cut shorter, requiring me to straighten it daily, and I have yet to have that fried look after straightening it. It looks great, smells great and feels amazing!
