I've been uniformly impressed with Aussie products in the past, so I was a little let down by this - it must lack silicones or something, because it just doesn't detangle, soften, or smooth my ("normal") hair as much as I'd expect from a deep conditioning treatment. It rinses out quite easily for a deep conditioner; while that's convenient on rushed Monday mornings, it's yet something else that makes me feel it isn't emollient enough. The pina colada scent is unbelievably yummy, but I'll probably switch to something else, or maybe mix it with coconut oil for more softening power. I don't much care for design of the package, which is a squeezable but firm plastic tube with grips. The opening is on the bottom of the tube, but it doesn't have a cap, just a sticker covering said opening that eventually doesn't stick anymore. The product is thick enough that it doesn't leak, but it'd be a different story if water got into the tube. I've managed to make one tube last 3 weeks - actually, I wonder if I'm supposed to use the entire tube at one time, and that's why I'm not getting the expected results despite the fact that my hair is barely past my shoulders.
My hair is very forgiving. It's been through a lot, good and bad dye jobs and lots of heat in my teen years. I bought this after hearing great reviews. I use it a few times a week in the shower and it just leaves my hair feeling soft and nice. My boyfriend always comments on how soft it is whenever I use this product. I wouldn't use it everyday because it could get heavy. I use it after I shampoo my hair and leave it in while I shave or wash my face. It's perfect for that. Multi-tasking in the shower! It also smells pretty good and leaves my hair smelling yummy (another plus for Alex!) Also, the packaging is perfect, no fussing with caps or slippery bottles in the shower. The ridges on the bottle make it perfect for quickly grabbing in the shower. For 3-4 dollars, you really can't beat it, plus a little goes a long way and not using it everyday makes this product last for months. Highly recommend if your hair is healthy and "average" because from what I read (and tried for myself,) that's what type of hair it works best on. I will buy again!
Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deeep. This is the best conditioner I've ever used. It feels extremely rich and makes my extra dry and big hair very soft. It smells so good, i'm in love with it!! I've only used the Conditioner so far. It uses Australian ingredients but not available in Australia, funny!! Had to order from US :(
Bought this on sale, 2 for 7 at my local drugstore and the price is wonderful.
I just got out the shower and finished a light blowdry with a touch of Garnier anti-frizz milk. So far I'd have to say I love the stuff. Not sure about long term use yet of course. It smells like coconut and leaves a pretty faint scent after its washed out. I love the cute purple squeeze bottle too. My hair is noticeably shinier and softer and feels very healthy.
I do recommend you try, the price is well worth a test.
Great product! Even the packaging is amazing. I use this on my dead, splitting ends. It's Heaven sent.
I not only will buy this product again, I will buy it forever! I adore it so much. The smell is orgasmic and the feeling is wonderful. When my hair dries it feels so soft and silky and detangled. Plus it doesn't weigh it down or anything. Perhaps my HG conditioner. P.S the packaging in the picture is of course old. New packaging is great too
I'm a licensed cosmo and this is the product I always recommend to those on a budget. It's a drugstore gem. If you've used it and didn't get that "wow" factor like you were hoping for (due to all of the rave reviews) let it sit for an hour. Apply some heat with a blow dryer here and there a few times during that hour. Once you rinse it out, your hair should feel a lot softer vs. using it the recommended 3 minutes. I truly believe in this product and I actually use it myself on a weekly basis. The smell is the only problem for me. It's suppose to be a tropical coconut scent.. but to me it's like bubblegum mixed with buttered popcorn. Oh by the way, fun fact: Jennifer Aniston use to use this product along with the Aussie Sprunch spray. Google it if you don't believe me. Her hairstylist Chris gave an interview back in 2009 spilling that secret ;)
I really love this stuff! Makes my fine hair so Soft!!! & the scent is so nice! Smells like coconuts :) I leave it in for 5 minutes, then rinse out. It just helps a lot. I recommend this especially if you have fine hair! & doesn't weigh my hair done. continued >>
Background info on my hair: I box dyed my hair three times. First time was semi-permanent, it didn't do anything for my hair(mostly cause I have black hair and I used dark brown dye). So I dyed it again a few months later with a permanent dye(blonde dye to get brown). I then went over that about a year later with amber(not auburn) dye. I also straighten my hair about 5 times out of a week. I wash my hair every other day.
so by now, I noticed that my hair was starting to get a little dry.. I do use conditioner and have tried other deep conditioners. Then, I bought the Aussie 3 minute because of the raves about this product.
Review: It makes my hair really soft! I leave it in less than 3 minutes and it works great! I actually use this with my regular conditioner every time I wash my hair. I mix both and it works great! Love the packaging!!!
I went a whole week dying and bleaching my hair on top of having lightly damaged long hair. I was either orange or too dark so I kept either getting my hair fixed at the salon or doing it myself. Well needless to say that my hair was totally fried and damaged by the end of the week. YES STUPID OF ME I KNOW. Now my hair felt like gunk, could not run my fingers through it..would sit on top of my head without hairspray. Used plenty of deep conditioners, hot oil treatments..etc. I was so upset and mad at myself, my sister gave me this stuff and as soon as I got out of the shower my hair felt brand new. My spilt ends were still there ofcoarse but my hair was much smoother and I could work with it. I would recommend this product for anyone who has damaged hair.
