REVIEW: Macadamia Flawless Cleansing Conditioner

I mentioned in my recent Empties video that I didn’t get on very well with most cleansing conditioners because they don’t leave my hair feeling clean at all. I love the idea of a cleansing conditioner though because I try not to wash my hair everyday and sometimes I need a little more refreshing than what a dry shampoo can achieve.

Macadamia Flawless is the ultimate all-in-one hair product. This is a sort of shampoo, conditioner as well as serum, so when I use this in my hair it’s a one-stop shop. It not only conditions the hair leaving it silky smooth, but it also feels like you’ve washed your hair with shampoo…when you haven’t. I still tend to add some heat protectant to my hair when I use this and plan on blow-drying it, but if I’ve got the time to let it air dry I just let it be.

(There are specific directions, but I’ve kind of added my own twist)

-Lightly emulsify 1-2 pumps between hands. This is a mousse product when it comes out of the can and as you rub your hands together it turns into a creamy, mousse-conditioner.
-Apply to wet hair and massage over hair and scalp area for 3-5 minutes. I don’t go at it for 3-5 minutes, but I make sure it’s well worked in and then leave it in my hair for the duration of my shower.
-Add a little extra water and massage one more time before rinsing it out.

I think the key to this cleansing conditioner is that it’s a mousse. It adds so much volume to my hair and because the product is so light it almost feels like it adds a layer of air between each strand of hair. It is truly amazing and one of the most fascinating hair products I’ve ever tried. It’s definitely on the pricey side, but for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time or is trying to wean themselves off of shampooing everyday this would be a great product to have.

Note-I just saw this “Macadamia Flawless Cradle” on FeelUnique for £21.88 which includes the Flawless Cleansing Conditioner, Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment and a comb! Nice little bargain!

Do cleansing conditioners appeal to you?

    This is a great concept! Dry shampoos don’t work that well for me because my hair is naturally dry (so its like drying out dry hair… not great idea.) Love this. Thinking I’ll try it out. Thanks lady! xx

    This sounds fantastic! I will have to try it.

    I’m curious about the range, and I want to try it – but I have a lot of sensitivities, and can’t seem to track down a full ingredients list. At some point I might just bite the bullet and buy some anyway, but in the meantime … can you post an ingredients list, or point me to a place I can get one perhaps?

  • Ivy

    Hm, this is really interesting. I think every time I saw this in stores I just thought it was a hairspray and moved on. I’ve never heard of cleansing conditioners, but I’m intrigued!

  • Rica

    Wow this sounds very revolutionary… Didn’t even know such product exist. Maybe I can finally not wash my hair every day…. I need to check the Trade Secret near me!

  • Louise Calland

    This made it into my shopping bag even before the end of the post…. you’re such an enabler! Either that or I’m weak. We’ll go with enabler.

  • Janet Eastham

    Oh no Estée! Now I wanna buy something I didn’t even know existed ;) On a cheeky haircare related side note, I’d love you to check out my recent hair ‘mare cartoon ( ) xx

  • Erika Dwyer

    if you use this in the shower, then how does it wean you off washing your hair everyday? I’m so confused!

  • Anya Cross

    I like the look of this! When I get over my spending ban (counting down the days…), this is definitely something I’ll be aiming to try x

  • Emily

    Wow this looks amazing! I hate having to dry shampoo the crap out of my hair if I don’t fancy washing it every day, I may have to make a sneaky Feel Unique order… xo

  • roshkud

    I’ve never thought of using a cleansing conditioner before, but this sounds wonderful! Its probably easier and quicker for busy days

  • Kim Clark

    I love reading your blogs and watching your videos. I too am a makeup junkie but just a tad bit older. I have decided to start my own beauty blog and it is in the construction stage as I would call it. Could you please come by and give me some love and a few pointers. Remember, it’s still in the construction stages.
    Thank you and love your blog.

  • Claire Kent

    Looks great! Thanks for the review, I need to try macadamia products. So far i love pro naturals argan oil conditioner, it makes your hair really soft.

  • Katie Allen

    this sounds like a really interesting product. I will have to look for it next time I’m out shopping.

  • BeautynBuzz

    I really want to try one ever since I started watching anna lee and jesse (she always uses cleansing conditioners)

    • Louise Calland

      I love those two!

  • tiggles

    Oh wow. An all-in-one hair product? This is some space age shit right here. I’m so lazy when it comes to my hair so this is like a dream come true. Now where are those jet packs?

    I recently tried to Loreal Cleansing Conditioner since I like their shampoo and conditioner but it made my hair feel very oily. My hair definitely was less frizzy and things like that, but you shouldn’t feel like you have to put dry shampoo into freshly washed hair. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one around Youtube and such, so I think I might finally check it out!
