The Macadamia Natural Oil Care line

Putting oil on surfaces that are naturally oily—like your face, skin in the summer, and hair—might sound like a huge hell no, but beauty brands big and small have been pushing the concept hard over the past year. (Of course, oils themselves have been used in other cultures and parts of the world much longer than that.) However, not all oils are created equal, and we've fallen victim to soppy scalps by picking the wrong one.

Macadamia Natural Oil's care line includes a spray, leave-in cream, deep repair masque, and two shampoos to moisturize your strands from root to tip. The products are a concoction of macadamia nut oil and argan seed oil, which absorb quickly, so "greasy" isn't the final outcome. Instead, you're looking at frizz-free, shiny, and smooth—just don't OD.
