Silicones have been given quite the bad rap by those who overgeneralize, claiming negative effects such as build-up, drying and hair “suffocation”.
In general, silicones serve many positive functions in hair care: reducing moisture loss, humidity-proofing, cuticle sealing and protection, detangling and shine enhancement. Some silicones are heavy and thick, some are quite water soluble and quickly evaporate; moreover, they can also be used in combination with each other and other ingredients to achieve a multitude of desirable effects.
One of the things that make Macadamia Professional hair products stand apart is that we use a customized blend of high-quality silicones. These premium ingredients, when combined with our other signature ingredients, play an important role in producing the incredible results that our products are known for: Unprecedented softness, shine, manageability and protection with no greasiness or build-up.
The Healing Oil Treatment and Deep Repair Masque have a pH of five, making them ideally balanced for your hair and skin’s natural pH. The Rejuvenating Shampoo and Leave-In Cream have an approximate six and a half pH.
The Macadamia Professional hair products contain many natural ingredients, however, for maximum performance we have determined that our products need to also contain ingredients that do not fall under the “natural” definition in order to achieve enhanced benefits as well as to sustain the oil, maintain a competitive shelf life and allow the Macadamia and Argan oils to remain blended and not separate.
Contrary to common belief, the Macadamia “nut” is actually a seed, not a nut at all. It belongs to the Proteaceae family, which is classified separately from most other tree nuts and from peanuts. Allergens are less common than in other tree nuts or peanuts. The oil from the Macadamia “nut” may cause a reaction in select few people with Macadamia-specific sensitizations, but even then it depends on the method of processing. The 17.4 dDa protein which is the primary allergen in Macadamia, is only present in raw and roasted extracts.
We have done extensive allergy testing and the conclusion, based on this and the fact that there have been zero reports of any incidents, is that Macadamia Professional products do not cause allergic reactions even in those suffering from nut allergies. We do recommend, however, for those people who have nut allergies, to err on the side of caution and rub a small amount of the Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment on the skin to test.
While Macadamia Oil has been used in cosmetics for centuries, Macadamia Natural Oil doesn’t encourage using its Healing Oil Treatment for skin care, as it is specifically formulated for optimal performance as a hair product.
Macadamia nut oil is a highly beneficial oil expressed from the macadamia nut meat of the macadamia tree. It has been found to be highly beneficial for hair, scalp, skin and general health.
Macadamia Natural Oil is a premium brand of hair care products for the professional beauty industry. The brand blends two of the world’s most precious oils, Macadamia Nut Oil and Argan Seed Oil, to create lightweight, highly absorbent exceptionally restorative products.
Remarkably lightweight, macadamia oil’s unique composition gives it an uncanny similarity and compatibility to sebum, the natural oil our own scalp produces. It's this unique similarity that makes it so effective, allowing the oil to infuse into hair and scalp with extraordinarily fast absorption and penetration; restoring health, softness and shine; and shielding the hair from chemicals, heat and damage through its natural UV protection.
Argan seed oil is exceptionally rich in natural Vitamin E, Omega 9, Linoleic, Oleic and unsaturated fatty acids. It is this decadent composition that rejuvenates hair from root to tip, increasing strength, elasticity and overall health.
What distinguishes Macadamia Oil from all the other oils on the market is its ability to penetrate deeply into each strand, working from the inside out, rather than just conditioning hair from the surface.
Macadamia Oil is extremely light weight and highly absorbent. The oil’s unique composition is remarkably similar to our body’s own natural oil. It also has an extremely high concentration of Omega 7 acid, which is our body’s own natural moisturizer. These two factors enable Macadamia Professional Oils to promote healthy hair growth, not just healthy hair maintenance.
As you know, oil and water separate - so when the oil is absorbed into the hair it basically pushes water trapped under the cuticle out and allows it to dry faster. The heat from the blow dryer reduces the viscosity and enhances penetration even further. Drying time can be reduced upwards of 40-50% due to this effect, which not only saves you time but also minimizes exposure to heat-related hair damage.
