Our hair is alive and it needs proper care and maintenance to keep its healthy look and strong growth. Stress, ageing, lack of moisture and proper nutrition, blow drying, bleaching, use of chemicals and curling iron, staying out in the sun for long hours make our hair thin, with splitted ends. If our hair become too dry, weakened and brittle it will start falling out at a faster pace so it is important to replenish it with nutrients and to give it proper care. Hair masks containing nutrient oils can give hair a boost of shine and healthy look.
One of the best ways to revive our hair is to add Macadamia Nut Oil to the hair masks we use. It is non-evaporating oil extracted from the kernel of the Australian Macadamia Nut (Macadamia integrifolia) which contains oleic, linoleic and palmitoleic acids, vitamins A, B and E, minerals as well as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Macadamia Nut Oil infuses the hair with moisture and nutrients, rejuvenates it and makes it softer, thicker and lustrous.
I would like to share with you a few hair repair masks with Macadamia Oil which are particularly for dry and damaged hair. Always prepare them right before applying them on your hair in order to preserve the nutrients, vitamins and minerals and thus to get a better effect.
Hair Mask with Egg, Cream and Macadamia Oil: Mix well in a bowl one egg, a tablespoon of cream and a tablespoon of macadamia oil. Rub in the roots of your hair by massageing for about five minutes. Put on a shower cap and stay with the mask for an hour. Wash well with hot water and shampoo.
Hair Mask with Strawberries, Avocado, Honey and Macadamia Oil: Mash 5-6 strawberries and half an avocado then add one tablespoon honey and one tablespooon macadamia oil. Mix well and leave the mask on your hair for about half an hour.

Hair Mask with Parsley, Red Wine and Macadamia Oil: Mash a handful of parsley and mix it well with one tablespoon red wine and three tablespoons macadamia oil. Rub the mix well in the roots of your hair, put a shower cap and leave the mask for about an hour.
