I'm forever looking for hair products to help boost the shine and moisture content of my hair without it going limp. I personally blame Kate Middleton with her beyond amazing locks. So it will come as zero surprise that I'm a fan of products containing argan oil - as they condition the hair and don't weigh it down. Although I've left 'normal' conditioners in my hair for hours, I've never actually used a proper hair mask, so I when I was given this Macadamia Deep Repair Masque (250ml/£26.95) from QVC. It contains the magic argan oil I love combined with macadamia nut oil and is infused with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts. A super thick, pretty shimmery pink-bronze cream needs to be popped on your locks for about 8 minutes before rinsing off. Loving my shower time, I didn't think that would be too long but after shampooing first the minutes did seem to linger, so next time, I will finish my shower and then rinse my hair after dressing etc. After using my hair did feel super soft, tangle free and didn't affect the volume - in fact one of my girl friends commented how thick my hair was looking - result!
As I love my voluminous hair looks, I am a dry-shampoo addict, which usually cause dullness, however, the Macadamia Volumising Dry Shampoo (£150ml/£19.95) sprays clear, so you don't get the powdery residue that sucks away the shine. It isn't quite as voluminous as Batiste - my go to dry shampoo, but the pay-off is the shine you keep, but it is nearly 10x the price, so one for special occasions and I'll keep Batiste for everyday use.
