Love Your Color semi-permanent hair dye is enriched with Macadamia Nut Oil. This oil is what leaves your hair looking shiny, healthy and not over processed if you use the dye. But the real question is what is Macadamia Nut Oil and how does it benefit my hair?

What is Macadamia Nut Oil?

Macadamia Nut Oil is an essential oil extracted from the nuts of a macadamia tree. It is used in many skin and hair care products as well as for cooking.  This oil differs from others because it doesn’t leave the scalp greasy and is easily absorbed into the scalp and hair shaft. According to wiseGEEK.com, “This product is made by extracting oil from the macadamia nut which grows on a macadamia tree. Although this tree originated in various parts of Australia, many locations throughout the world have become home to the macadamia tree. The chemical make-up of this product is similar to oils that the human body produces which makes macadamia oil for hair easy for the body to absorb.”

  • Repairs Dry Hair: Macadamia nut oil is very light compared to other oils such as olive oil. It is easily washed out can contains important vitamins and minerals that are essential in treating dry and damaged hair.

  • Eliminates Frizz: The essential fatty acids and vitamins found in macadamia nut oil are what eliminate frizz.

Livestrong.com says, “macadamia nut oil helps to prevent against hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and hair follicles to improve hair strength and elasticity.”
