This (and the shampoo) were the first non-salon brand products I have tried in years. It is an amazing conditioner and helped soften my bleached, damaged hair. However, it made my back break out. I have been having so many problems with my hair being damaged and this helped so much I contemplated on weather or not the back break outs were worth it. In the end, I decided they are not. I now use 3 minute miracle as my daily conditioner and it is more more moisturizing and does not cause breakouts.
Love this conditioner! My hair is medium texture and bleached and this keeps it nice and smooth. I was a little leary of how well this would work but now I have no problem recommending this to friends. I love the pump- much more convenient and absolutely can't beat the price!
Pros: Makes your hair feel very moist and healthy. Great for people with straight hair
Cons: Made my hair EXTREMELY frizzy. Normally, when I scrunch my hair its not very frizzy at all and has a nice curl to it. After I used this conditioner, my hair would not curl while scrunching it, causeing it to become a BIG, NASTY, FRIZZ BALL! What a hair disaster!
I was hoping this would be as good or almost as good as another conditioner I tried from this line - the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep - but it was nowhere near as good. It was not very conditioning and especially poor at detangling.
Having spent upwards of $50 for a bottle of high-end salon conditioner and having spent an untold amount of money in the search for the perfect conditioner, I NEVER in a million years would have thought that my HG everyday (read: NOT a protein and NOT a deep conditioner) conditioner would end up being a drugstore brand.
My hair is relaxed, colored (no lift) coarse 3c hair. I blowdry and flat iron about 2x per week. This conditioner not only leaves my hair SUPER moist, it also functions as a leave-in, and when mixed with the Aussie Sydney Smooth anti-frizz gel (1/2 & 1/2) functions as a FANTASTIC scrunching product (for my curly days).
I typically leave about half a tablespoon in my hair and then follow with No Frizz Straightening Treatment for Coarse hair and a dime sized dollop of Moroccan oil. I will also add that there is no buildup, despite the fact that I use it as a leave in and don't use sulfates to cleanse my hair.
I tell you, people, this stuff is hands down THE BEST every day conditioner there is. The consistency is great and the smell is wonderful (wish it would linger, though).
If Aussie decides to make a sulfate and sodium chloride free shampoo, I'm all over it!
*Here's hoping they NEVER DC it!!!!*
I'm in love with the shampoo and conditioner. For $5, you get a huge bottle with a pump. It smells great and it makes my hair look and feel great. I get so many compliments on my hair and lots of people ask me what I use. This set of S+C is is my HG!
I bought this during Winter and it was great but then after awhile my hair started to get oily and greasy.
Really hydrating great for winter time bad thing is that is has a lot of sulfate which strips the hair of its natural moisture and hydrates with the other ingredients.
This product is just average (imo). The smell is really, really sweet/tropical and can be annoyingly distracting... may cause headaches. I didn't find that this conditioner significantly improved my hair. My overall reaction was "meh, I've used better". It didn't make my hair extremely soft, but it didn't dry-out or ruin my hair either. I like how it is packaged in huge, fabulous bottles... I just wish the actual product produced equally fabulous results. I will probably not repurchase this.
My absolute favorite for conditioner(:
It makes my hair so soft, and makes spilt ends and heat damage less noticable.
And I ALWAYS, literally everyday, get comments on how shiny and soft my hair is, or how good it smells.
