The Macadamia Muse Party + Giveaway!

As if on cue, shortly after I decided to chop most of my hair off into an A-Line graduated bob, the gods of hair called me into the pagoda of hair beautification to experience a step towards hair revival with Piandré and its partner in salon hair care, Macadamia Natural Oil.

I arrived much later, when the other bloggers were winding down from theirs, so I got to feel their hair before I plopped down to my salon chair and chose a treatment for my hair that was recently liberated from its permed aftermath. It was an easy one, I chose the Damaged No More Treatment --- I still inflict damage upon my hair everyday because of frequent blowdrying!

“The Damaged No More Treatment was a combination of the Deep Repair and Healing Oil Treatment, a quick fix for hair that’s dry, damaged, and chemically processed. Many of the bloggers, whose hair had been considered dead for a long time, marveled at the results.”

What to Expect:

I knew the treatment was going to be like any other treatment where the staff would apply something on to your hair but surprisingly, this macadamia treatment

a) did not smell like chocolates, as I had hoped, hehe

b) was more luxurious than any hair treatment I’ve had in recent memory

c) the shampoo wasn’t as bubbly, which is because of the absence of surfactants, which is a detergent that the hair doesn’t need. For my treatment, Piandré used the Deep Repair Masque and the Healing Oil that are concoctions of macadamia and argan oils that restore the hair’s moisture.

Overall: This macadamia oil treatment at Piandré was pretty remarkable, so much so that several days after, when the effects have gone, I am left wondering whether I should go back and avail of it again. Now that I have straight hair, I need it to be smooth and shiny and all the time, so I’d get a much milder treatment because my hair, after all, is damaged no more.


Worth noting is their lineup, which has what they call Flawless, a cleansing conditioner, which I now regret that I didn’t get, especially for an upcoming vacation. Better than drying shampoo, this product is perfect for those long plane rides where you wish you can just clean {and prettify!} your hair in a jiff! It was only for PHP 350 that day but normally, for PHP 700.

Would I go back?

I have been a loyalist of Piandré a long time until my hairstylist left and I got wayward into the arms of other top salons {story of any woman, I tell you} but coming into their BGC branch was a reminder what a spectacular experience it is to be in a salon that fills all the gaps and thinks of all the little details throughout the way.
