Nuance Salma Hayek Meadowfoam Seed Leave-In Treatment Review

Hello all,

Today, I am reviewing a produt from a brand that is new to me. This is the Nuance Skincare and Cosmetics range which was launched by Salma Hayek a few years ago and the product that I am reviewing today is the “Meadowfoam Seed Leave-In Treatment.” Read on to find out more about this product.

My Experience with Nuance Salma Hayek Meadowfoam Seed Leave-In Treatment:

Packaging:  The product comes in a simple cream-colored squeezable tube packaging with a flip top cap. The cap shuts tightly and there is no danger of any product leakage. The packaging is sleek and quite travel friendly.

Texture/Fragrance/Results:  The first thing that you would notice about this product is the amazing fragrance. Though I cannot place the fragrance, it feels wonderful and continues to linger in the hair for a long time after application.

The product has a creamy texture; it is not too thick and spreads pretty easily through the hair. I apply a little dollop of the cream to towel-dried damp hair and then allow my hair to air dry or user a hair dryer.  The cream is quite lightweight and does not weigh down the hair or make it greasy.


This product is touted as a leave-in treatment to rescue damaged hair, prevent breakage, control frizz, seal moisture, prevent sun damage, protect against heat treatment and condition hair.  Now, when a product promises so much, you know that you need to take it with a pinch of salt. So, I was prepared to not expect too much when I started using this product and here are my observations:

Nuance Salma Hayek Meadowfoam Seed Leave-In Treatment5

  • The cream does condition the hair well and moisturizes it and makes it tangle-free.
  • It does not do a good job of controlling frizz and my hair continues to be frizzy.
  • It is difficult to gauge whether the cream protects from sun or heat damage, but in the time that I used it, I continued to use my flat iron and hair dryer and did not notice any adverse effects of heat.
  • I did not notice any special protection from hair breakage and I continued to lose hair as I usually do after a shampoo routine.

So, to summarize, I would say this is a product with a wonderful fragrance which conditions the hair well and can be used as a heat protectant, but all the other claims are not totally true.

  • Amazing fragrance.
  • Does not weigh the hair down.

  • Travel-friendly packaging.

Cons of Nuance Salma Hayek Meadowfoam Seed Leave-In Treatment:
