Review: HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care


Disclaimer: I was sent these products from HASK, with no compensation other than the products to test and review. The following post consists of my honest thoughts & opinions about the product!

My hair is longer than it’s been in 9 years, and I’m not going to lie – I have no idea what to do with it 90% of the time. It just feels limp, frizzy, and on the either end of the dry/greasy spectrum depending on the day. Since I’m so used to having short hair, I have no idea what to do with it being this long (and typically pretty unruly,) so it usually ends up in a ponytail, bun, or more recently, a side braid (though not nearly as epic as Rapunzel’s sadly.)

So, I jumped at the chance to review the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care Collection – anything to get this mop on my head under control!

I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner for 6 days now, and although my hair still ends up in a ponytail most days from hot yoga/barre/flex classes, I’ve definitely noticed a change in how soft and smooth it makes my hair feel, without getting too oily or weighed down with product like so many oil-based hair products do (and trust me, Birchbox has sent me my fair share of hair masks/oils.)

I took so many selfies.

Pros:

It smells SO good. Especially the shampoo. I feel like I’m baking cookies whenever I wash my hair!

Affordable ($6 each for the shampoo and conditioner.)

There’s also a deep conditioning hair mask and a hair oil to complete the macadamia oil circle of moisture. (I just made that phrase up. You know what I’m getting at though.)

No sulfates (which isn’t usually something I pay attention to, but it’s good regardless!)

The wording on the bottles is super approachable. “Apply generously, leaving on for 1-2 minutes, or as long as it takes to shave your legs!” <- things like that make me chuckle and appreciate the brand. Buuuuttt…..

Cons:

Papyrus. Why!? Why do so many companies still think using Papyrus as a font choice is a good idea?! You’re killin’ me, HASK. If I saw this brand on a shelf, I’d move right along simply because of the typeface :/ #graphicdesignerproblems ?

WHYYYY!?

From HASK:

You know how macadamia nuts are super delicious but super-high in fat (and thus, calories)? Well, the very thing that makes them not-so-great for your waistline is what makes them oh-so-perfect for your hair: Essential fatty acids! Macadamia nuts are loaded with these things! That-plus the fact that they have the uncanny ability to mimic our scalps’ natural oils-is probably why Macadamia Oil has been a treasured beauty aid in Australia for generations.

Free of: sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors.

Sooo, yeah! If you’ve been looking for an effective, affordable moisturizing shampoo, especially with the impending dry winter weather (it’ll get here eventually, I’m sure of it!) –  I can definitely recommend the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care collection…if only for the smell of the shampoo! 😀
