My Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Treatment Experience at Piandre Salon, Bonifacio Global City (The Fort)

My normal hair color is black and the hair strands are thick and naturally wavy.  But ever since I started working, I found the beauty of hair color and how it can instantly transform a person's look to a much softer one, especially if you choose the right shade for you.  Hence, I have been having my hair colored for a long time now.  I also discovered the wonders of using hair styling tools, which makes my look more polished and relaxed versus my #Iwokeuplookinglikethis hair.

Since having my hair colored and styled everyday subjects it to damage, I am always on the look out for new hair treatments and products to test.  It's a good thing I got an invitation to Macadamia Natural Oil's Muse Party!  Now, who doesn't love a beauty themed party?  Count me in!

The Macadamia Muse Party was held at the newly opened and super posh 400 square meter Piandre Salon at Bonifacio Global City at Two Parkade, 30th Street corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City. 

About to start my hair treatment

I was asked what treatment I would like for my hair at the party and I chose the "Damaged no more treatment" - This treatment is for the Macadamia Muse who has dry, damaged and/or chemicallly treated hair.  A quick fix for long time hair problems.  You can bring back your hair's natural shine and beauty with this treatment.

The process started with a Rejuvenating Shampoo, followed by the application of a Deep Repair Masque, and lastly a Healing Oil Treatment.  The price range for any Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Treatment is from Php 900.00 to Php 1,350.00 (depending on your hair length).

My take on the treatment and the products used:

I love that the entire hair treatment process just took an hour to finish.  If you have a busy schedule, you can just squeeze in an appointment at any Piandre Salon Branch near you and be finished by the end of the lunch hour.  You'll also come out feeling relaxed due to the back massage, that comes with the treatment.  As of this writing, it has been 3 days since the treatment and my hair is still softer and much shinier now than it was before the treatment.

I also love that Macadamia Natural Oil products are Color Safe, Sulfate Free and Paraben Free.  It is the healthier more natural hair care/treatment/styling choice, and I also don't have to worry that it will make my hair color dull.

The products used for my treatment: The Rejuvenating Shampoo, the Healing Oil Treatment and the Deep Repair Masque.

...of course the party won't be complete without these quick bites.

I absolutely love my newly treated hair!

What is the Macadamia Natural Oil Story?

Macadamia Natural Oil, the oil authority for global textures, was inspired by extensive travels throughout the far reaches of the globe that led to one key insight - All global textures, from baby fine to ultra curly and coiled, have unique moisture level and style control needs.

To address these needs, Macadamia Natural Oil products contain an exclusive Pro Oil Complex, a blend of therapeutic Macadamia and Argan oils, rich in Omega 7, 5, 3 and 9 fatty acids, which deeply yet weightlessly nourish and repair hair from the inside out, rather than just conditioning from the surface, to renew hair’s natural texture.

How does it work?

Macadamia Oil contains the highest amount of Omega 7 than any other nut oil.  Omega 7 most closely resembles human hair sebum and thus mimics scalp’s natural oil production to provide nourishment and moisturization with exceptional absorption and penetration from the inside out. 
Plus, Omega 7 is exceptionally lightweight and non-greasy with no buildup, which makes it ideal for All global textures, from the finest to the coarsest hair.

Argan Oil is a rich oil filled with Omega 9, antioxidants and Vitamin E, which improves hair strength, renews damage and restores shine and softness to dry, brittle hair while reducing frizz and fly-aways.  When blended together, hair’s natural texture is transformed with renewed health, shine, bounce and manageability.
