REVISITED | Piandre Salon and Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Treatment

June 20, 2014

Hola, hola ladies! I’ve been slacking off for a while, not on purpose though but only because I’ve been busy with my real job. I’ve had other things in mind and plate which left me occupied for sometime now. But, when Nuffnang Philippines invited me for an afternoon of hair treatment at Piandre Salon, the biggest single-owned salon chain in the Philippines catering to the country's most discerning clientele since 1987,  to introduce their latest product, Macadamia Natural Oil , I immediately RSVP’d. 

Hair treatments are one of my guilty pleasures. Except that most of the time, I do it at home. I find it cost-effective and very convenient rather than scheduling it at a salon. Usually, I buy those which are readily available when I travel abroad because you can find almost all the brands you can imagine. I remember stacking on some SkinFood Argan Oil Hair Mask Pack because of Sheryll’s  (of The Wanderlust Project), recommendation during my Seoul trip.

To start, Macadamia Natural Oil, the oil authority for global textures, was inspired by extensive travels throughout the far reaches of the globe that led to one key insight… ALL global textures, from baby fine to ultra curly and coiled, have unique moisture level and style control needs.

To address these needs, Macadamia Natural Oil products contain an exclusive PRO OIL COMPLEX, a blend of therapeutic Macadamia and Argan oils, rich in Omega 7, 5, 3 and 9 fatty acids, which deeply yet weightlessly nourish and repair hair from the inside out, rather than just conditioning from the surface, to renew hair’s natural texture.


Here’s how it works:

Macadamia Oil contains the highest amount of Omega 7 than any other nut oil.  Omega 7 most closely resembles human hair sebum and thus mimics scalp’s natural oil production to provide nourishment and moisturization with exceptional absorption and penetration from the inside out. Plus, Omega 7 is exceptionally lightweight and non-greasy with no buildup, which makes it ideal for ALL global textures, from the finest to the coarsest hair. Argan Oil is a rich oil filled with Omega 9, antioxidants and Vitamin E, which improves hair strength, renews damage and restores shine and softness to dry, brittle hair while reducing frizz and fly-aways.

When blended together…hair’s natural texture is transformed with renewed health, shine, bounce and manageability.

I was there a little past 1PM which was earlier than my schedule. I was welcomed immediately by their sales manager and was introduced to Razey, my hair expert for the day. I was asked to pick my choice of hair treatment and I opted for the one meant to repair the damaging effects of coloring, styling, perming and whatever abuse you can think for your hair.

Razey asked me to touch my hair as she puts the treatment and noticed how soft my hair was after. I spent about a little over 30 mins before she asked me to wash and start blowdrying my hair. 

 After washing my hair, the softness was noticeable as my hair moves plus how shiny it was! Everyone complimented my hair and me feeling like a movie star (harharhar) couldn’t agree more!

And the result was this! Oh my God, I can totally feel the difference! Thank you Razey for my moviestar hair, lol!

It was also a chance for us to check out their products which were selling at 50% off! I don’t want to go home empty handed for no reason because I know how these products can help counter the damages I subject my hair into especially that I’m maintaining an ass kicking ash blonde hair, lol. And so, I picked up the Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment. 

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic hair oil for all textures that instantly absorbs into hair and scalp, weightlessly infusing moisture, softness, protection and shine. Especially beneficial to hair in need of hydration.
  • Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
  • Instantly absorbs and penetrates; lightweight & non-greasy
  • Leaves hair ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
  • Includes natural UV protection to extend the life of color treatments
  • Reduces drying time by 40-50%

On a side note, I was also happy to meet the super pretty Julia (what a gorgeous face complimented by a gorgeous pixie cut)  of, who happens to be one of my fave bloggers too.  I came up to her and introduce myself and being the fangirl that I am, I asked a photo with her and she was glad to obliged. Thanks, Ms. Julia!

I’ve met Scott Smith who is the Vice President  for Business Development (Asia Pacific and Middle East)  for Macadamia Natural Oil who was happy to answer all my questions!

While people may hesitate for the price of Macadamia’s products which may range from Php500 to Php3,000,  I must say that these products are made of high quality ingredients and if you are that much willing to shell out that much for your crowning glory, I’d say go for it. Also, they have various product sizes ranging from 10 ml, 30ml and up if you are scared to buy the huge bottle.

Also, Piandre Salon's BGC branch looks really awesome, spacious and relaxing.

And oh, here's a photo of my hair when I got home. I like that it was so full of volume, shine and smells really yummy.

What’s your biggest hair guilty pleasures? Don’t forget to include hair treatments, okay?
