Best Macadamia Oil Hair Product

Anyone know of a good Macadamia oil product from a specific brand that's good for absorbing into hair efficiently without causing oily hair? Or is there any other great hair product/oil good at absorbing into hair, and promoting moisturized hair. Thanks!

    Oils do not moisturise hair, they are anti humectants/ occlusives/ sealants. The lauric acid in coconut can penetrate dry hair, and the only oil proven to reduce protein loss related to damage.

    Macadamia is rich in oleic acid which is likely also to penetrate dry hair, but isn't fundamentally any different/ better than olive, avocado or sweet almond oils.

    AFAIK no specific brand will penetrate better than any other, a fatty acid is a fatty acid. Shampoo may aid penetration as can time and heat.
