I have tried a couple cleansing conditioners that are on the market and usually they fall way short of my expectations. I want to put all of these good-for-you nutrients in my hair and leave all the not-so-great chemicals behind. It seems as though I have found a solution with Flawless from Macadamia Natural Oil.
This hair care product is your one-stop-shop for your everyday needs. It takes the place of a shampoo and conditioner.
Here are the claims:
• All-in-one Cleansing and
• Refines Hair Texture
• Optimizes Styling Process
• Drastically Cuts Down Blow Drying Time
• Perfect For All Hair Types
• Surfactant-free and Paraben-free
• No Stripping Suds
All of the good ingredients it has in it:
Chamomile, Vitamin E, Proteins, Macadamia Oil, and Argan Oil.
I was a little shocked when I first opened this up... Most cleansing conditioners, or even shampoos and conditioners in general have regular textures to them. This is actually similar to a mouse product. The nozzle expenses a foam that is on the thicker more moisturizing side, it sits in your hand for a minute and it expands. Crazy, right?
So, I follow the instructions: I dispense 2 pumps and emulsify the product between my hands and it soft of turns into a less foamy, more conditioner like substance. I work it from root to tips and rise it out. There was no real lather, which is typical of a cleansing conditioner. I intentionally did not add any leave-in conditioner because I wanted to see the results all on it's own.
I was able to comb through my hair fairly easily, and with my long hair that is kind of a miracle. I then used my blow dryer and a round brush and found that, indeed, it didn't take me very long to dry my hair. I used a round brush to flip my hair under and I must say that it held nicely!
It didn't leave my hair feeling weighed down like most cleansing conditioners I have tried in the past. It added a great deal of healthy shine and made my hair more manageable. I was able to style my hair pretty quickly and get out the door. I would say that this is an overall impressive product.
