Why We Made This
For all over lustre. A one-stop drop. We were kind of sick of trying to find a clean and quality macadamia-oil. Most turned out to be 10% macadamia oil and 90% silicone or other filler ingredients. We craved a single, cold-pressed, and extremely high-grade oil that would actually do the whole macadamia thing and do it well.
hair & body
For body: liberally coat entire body for a dewy finish, or add a few drops to your everyday lotion for extra slip and softness. (Just remember to patch-test first). And for hair: glide on for a one-step pre-wash, leave it in for a treatment oil, or add a few drops to your hair-mask as a fatty acid booster for insanely soft strands

macadamia-oil, on you

I absolutely adored this product for a boost in moisture!
All thoughts are honest and opinions are my own.* I am familiar with Bread and have been using them for about a year- I first purchased the Snac Pac which comes with their adorable clear Bread bag(I use it for my Bread puff and bobbies or makeup), Hair cleanser and conditioner, and the Bread puff (scrunchie) and was beyond impressed with the products. Bread is such an underrated brand that has extremely concentrated formulas; this is a high end haircare brand but compared to other brands, I would say it is much more affordable. This Macadamia oil comes in a 1.56 fl oz size and I know this is going to last me a long time; it is housed in a beautiful glass bottle with a clouded look to it. Because of the way the top is, it is easy to accidentally over pour your oil and waste it. I highly recommend utilizing a drop style application by putting the tip of it to each of your fingers and tipping the bottle over so you get some oil on your finger. I usually apply oil to about four fingers, than apply to my hair. A little about my hair- I am Mexican with medium texture and medium density hair; however, I have alot of hair. It is just fine-medium denseness. It is quite curly and I have curls that wrap around the edges of my scalp, so making sure that I am hydrating my curls is very important to me. I typically like to apply my Macadamia oil after I've showered and have let my hair dry a bit in an Acquis hair wrap. After about five minutes, I apply my oil to my ends and slowly work my way up my hair shaft; any excess oil I use to help hydrate the bitty curls near my ears and the top of my head that stick straight out. Just be careful you do not over use this oil; it is very concentrated so a little goes a long way. I love that Bread is a Clean ingredient brand, and this Macadamia oil is fragrance free. I also love that this oil is safe for skin too! I particularly love taking a little and rubbing it along my cheekbones for a gentle bit of glow and hydration, and also my shoulder bones for a gorgeous summer glow. Another great option for double the moisture is I add it to my body creams I use; it imparts a beautiful glow and keeps my skin super hydrated. I really like the way it makes my legs look after a shave; there's something about a glowy leg in the summer that is super beautiful. One of the great things about this Macadamia oil is it's safe to use every day, anytime. The only thing I would say is just be careful with the glass bottle; it is so gorgeous to have sitting on your vanity or makeup area, but I do not choose to travel with it as I do not want to risk it breaking or cracking (although the glass bottle is quite thick.)This is a beautiful, high end luxury oil that is much more affordable than other luxury oils I've used. Definitely a 5 out of 5 for Bread- once again! This product was kindly gifted by Bread.*
I started dabbling in hair oils when I was about 12. Back then I would slather my hair in Moroccan oil and promptly fry it with a straightener...lessons were learnedðŸ¤¦â€â™€ï¸. Bread sent me this product to test and I love it!! I really like using this after a long day to refresh my curls before going out again. I'll fluff my hair and then add a little oil for some shine and anti-frizz definition. I was tempted to rub it all over my body on multiple occasions, but felt that would be a little wasteful as this product is not cheap. Instead I put a few drops in my body lotion to still get those fatty acid benefits. I'm not sure if it's ~recommended~ to apply to the face, but out of curiosity, I applied some of this oil under my eyes on a particularly dry night and then a tiny amount to my whole face the next night. I found it to be soothing and a gentle occlusive for sealing in my actives. I'm super excited to try this as a pre-wash and find even more uses for it!
I love it, love that it doesn't have any scent. It actually works on my legs to prevent razor bumps. And I don't have to use much. Overall, fantastic product!
