Product Review: Macadamia Professional Hair Care

I’ve been using Macadamia products for a few good years now and I’ve been very happy about the effects of it. As some of you know, I’ve had long healthy locks before I had my pixie. Unfortunately, cutting my hair short is not a voluntary decision or a fashion statement but it was a salon treatment gone wrong.

As a beauty writer, I promised myself that I will only recommend and promote products that I truly believe in. I don’t see the point of promoting something that you don’t actually like, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Giella products are hand-crafted with ingredients selected to customize the perfect product just for you. Products can be customized for allergies including nut oils and butters. She stands behind her products as being the finest in quality, texture and shade selections.
