I love this product! The packaging is the best because it doesn't need a cap, the smell is so exotic like coconuts, and the product itself makes my hair feel and look so healthy!

I have tried conditioners from every price point and this one is my all time fave! Though this is supposed to be a conditioning treatment, I use it every time I wash my hair as my usual conditioner. Not only does it smell AMAZING (I get compliments from everyone around me right after I've showered), but it makes my hair so soft and silky and helps keep my natural curls from getting frizzy. The price is so affordable that I will continue to buy forever! My one complaint is the packaging; While the squeeze bottle is convenient, it makes it difficult to get the last bits of product out. Besides that, an amazing product!

This has been in my shower for the past several years! Learned about it while doing home-bleaching. It truly is a miracle. Smells like coconut and feels great. After a couple bleaching processes where my hair felt like straw, this was the perfect cure like nothing else I've ever tried.

This is an amazing good if you keep it on longer than it tells you on the packaging. If you use this as a deep treatment and keep it on your hair for 1 hour or as long as you desire it is really good. Makes your hair soft and smelling amazing. Quite cheap!

This product works great on my hair! Not only do I use it as my usual conditioner but I also use it as a leave in conditioner! It helped my hair out a lot, my hair had been so damaged because of bleaching and dying it blonde for so many years I am now a brunette and my hair is not as dry and fried like before! Love this product and the price isn't so bad either!

After reading so many rave reviews of this product (both here on MUA and on seemingly every beauty/hair care blog in existence), I was excited to test it out. I deal with a wide and exciting variety of hair issues: thinness, brittleness, dryness, frizz, you name it. No fun. So when I found a product with near-universal success in eliminating ALL OF THE ABOVE, you can bet I popped right out to CVS to buy it.

First off, the price is excellent. It's one of the cheapest products in the hair stuff aisle, and for a decent amount of product, too - if this were a normal shampoo or conditioner, I wouldn't need more than a bottle a month or so.

Speaking of the bottle, this was the first stumbling block. It's an unusual upside-down squeeze bottle that technically doesn't have a cap. The only thing to stop the product oozing out of the mouth is that it's INCREDIBLY thick. Squeezing out even a modest amount (especially with slippery, shower-wet hands) is kind of a chore, and it holds its shape so well that a good amount of shaking is required to get it to stop adhering to the sides of the bottle and actually get close enough to the mouth to get squeezed out.

However, the biggest stumbling block for me was that, in normal concentrations, it doesn't do jack for my hair. I was very disappointed when I worked a palm-sized dollop into my pixie cut-length hair, let it sit for five minutes, washed it out, and saw exactly zero improvement. The frizz and rough texture were still there, as strong as ever.

So I played around with it, letting it sit for longer, using a bigger dollop, and so on. Eventually, I found that the only way I could get any sort of noticeable result is using an ice-cream-scoop-sized blob and letting it sit for at least 10 minutes. Remember, I have a pixie cut! I really felt like I shouldn't have to use so much product on so little hair. And even then, the results weren't really anything to write home about. If asked, my boyfriend said that it felt a little softer, but I still found myself needing daily application of my beloved John Frieda Frizz-Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir to avoid looking like I'd been recently electrocuted.

I eventually enlisted my sister as a guinea pig, to see if it did anything for her hair (which is thicker and a touch less coarse than mine, but similarly frizzy). We found that her hair was softer, but not smoother. So maybe I'm just in the 0.0000001% of the population that Aussie's magic doesn't work on.

- Excellent price
- Plenty of bang for your buck
- Pleasant tropical smell

- Kind of a chore to get out of the bottle
- Did not make my hair smoother or stronger
- Disproportionately large amount of product needed to impart even minimal softness/moisture

TL;DR: While the evidence is overwhelmingly in its favor, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle was, shall we say, a little underwhelming. The search for better hair continues!

If you like this product or want something heavier then I recommend Tresemme's Smooth & Silky conditioner (makes hair shiny and soft) or their Keratin conditioner (smoothes frizz and straightens hair). I use them both together (this may be too much for most people) and they get the job done for me as long as I use a clarifying shampoo once a month.

This conditioner is thicker than most but really did nothing except detangle my hair. My hair was still just as dry afterward.

I absolutely love everything about this product :smell , treatment, hair feeling rrpaired and sooo soooffttt . The only issue is the packaging. Very hard yo squeeze product out, and the product doesnt last for a long time either. For the price given in supermarkets, it is not a very good value of money, but if on a salle, its a miracle for every hair !!! (:
