My Experience with Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Spray:
Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Spray combines the moisturising effect of Vitamin E, macadamia and argan oil, all which are are great for dry hair. Let’s start with the packaging. They have a standard packaging for all their products, except that the sizes and shapes differ. This one comes in a glass bottle with their standard green and brown label. The bottle is opaque and hence you do not know how much of the quantity has been used up, or how much is left. All you can do is shake and take a guess of the quantity.
It isn’t travel-friendly as it is prone to breakage since it is made of glass. It’s quite sturdy, though. It has a nozzle spray which I don’t like. The oil keeps spilling every time you use it however careful you are. In the bargain, you tend to lose out a lot of the product. I would have preferred a pump dispenser instead. It has quite a strong scent. I have used it like a serum on my wet hair after shampooing and it worked very well. Hair was quite manageable and at the same time did not get sticky or oily.
I think you just need to get the perfect quantity or else it may get too oily. I tried it on my dry hair as well. I felt it looked oily and sticky, but when I styled my hair, it looked amazing and silky. I used it on my dry ends, too, and it worked well in all aspects. The only thing I noticed was that the smell was a bit too strong and musky. After each usage, my hair feels much shinier, silky and frizz-free. And, the effects lasts for good three days.
The best part about this oil spray is that it provides UV protection. It is also known to extend the life of colour treatments by reducing fading. So, all of you who have coloured hair, do try this one. This product works excellent on dry hair, though it claims it can be used on all hair types. The quantity is limited and you cannot use this as a regular oil since you would need almost the whole bottle if you have long hair. So, this is best used as a styling product or on days when you need some moisture-boost for your dry or damaged tresses.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Spray?
Yes. I would love to repurchase this spray. It adds a nice sheen and texture to hair. I would love to try other products too by this brand. This is a lighter alternative to the original Luxurious Oil Treatment. Still, it is not a must-have for everyone.
