Review: Organix Hydrating Macademia Oil Conditioner

Ulta: $7.99

Found on organixhair.com

This conditioner is meant to “drench your strands in a luxurious formula to instantly hydrate and smooth parched, dry hair while mending split ends for a luscious, vibrant mane with brilliant shine”. It is formulated with macademia oil, bamboo extract, and sugar cane extract.

Ingredients:

Aqua (DI Water), Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycol Stearate, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Ceteareth-20, Parfum, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Extract, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa Butter), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Leaf) Extract, Panthenol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Red 40, Yellow 5.

So I had two major complaints with this product: first and foremost the conditioning properties, and secondly the smell. This conditioner did pretty much nothing for my hair. I had reasonably high expectations for it because of my experiences with the argan oil conditioner and what I had heard about other macademia oil products, but it really failed to impress. I don’t think that my hair was any more softer or moisturized than it would have been had I not used a conditioner at all, and was only a bit more detangled. This was especially disappointing due to the price. Though it is by no means salon brand, it is still around double the price of other drugstore conditioners. There are so many other brands that are much cheaper and perform very well. My second gripe is the smell. It smelled strongly sugar, which I assume is due to the sugar cane extract in the product. In another product maybe it would be ok, but for haircare to my nose it was just too much. Now, this is a very subjective thing, my sister happens to love the smell so maybe you would too.

 

Overall, I would not recommend this product at all, even if you like the smell or not, as it doesn’t really do much. Don’t waste your money, if you would like something from Organix I would highly recommend the argan conditioner, it works well and smells wonderful. In short, it is what I wish this product was.
