There's not much that can make my dry coarse damaged color-treated hair soft, which is why I'm always on the hunt for something better than what I may be using at that moment. So, after months of hearing beauty gurus rave about this product, I caved in and ordered it on Amazon. It was about £4, really really cheap, but I've heard people say that you can get it at any drugstore now and I guess it's cheaper there.
I'm always pretty skeptical when trying such hyped products but I must say, this deserves all the rave reviews it gets. This hair mask leaves my otherwise-unmanageable hair soft and silky-smooth. I'd say the only thing that compares to this mask is the L'oreal Total Repair 5 mask and maybe the Macadamia one that's so hyped (although I wouldn't know, I haven't tried it, and honestly, I don't feel the need to if I can get the same results with something from the drugstore at a fraction of the price). Although I must warn you, the packaging sucks. Waters gets into it really easily and, if you don't use for some time, it hardens and becomes all crusty gross, sometimes I had to use a knife just to get the product out. I've also heard that it doesn't really conditiom your hair but just coats in silicones. But really, what can you ask of such an affordable product. All I can say is, if you have hair that's anything like mine, give it a try, you won't regret it.

Whilst planning for my wedding my dad's fiancée who is a hair dresser took over doing my hair colour and cut. I have really curly hair that is often dry, frizzy and unmanageable. It was recommended to me that I invest in a good conditioner and conditioning treatment. As a result I went to boots and purchased this Aussie 3 Minute Miracle cream.
I washed my hair with shampoo as normal and then applied this Aussie 3 Minute Miraacle cream. I really rubbed it in to cover all of my hair and left it the recommend 3 minutes before washing it off. The instructions are unclear and so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use normal conditioner as well. It turns out that I don't think you need a conditioner after using this treatment as I guess this is just an intensive conditioning treatment.
After using Aussie 3 Minute Miracle my hair felt much thicker because it was so hydrated. It also didn't go as frizzy after application that it normally does.I must also comment on the smell - it us amazing! The smell is delicious and even after washing it out your hair smells really good all day long.
I have since used this Aussie 3 minute miracle for more than 3 minutes. I have applied the cream and then put a towel over my head for half an hour. I'm not sure how much difference this made but my thinking is 'the longer the better'.
Aussie 3 Minute Micrable costs about £3.50 and I think that this is money well spent.
As I have very damaged dry curly hair I need do treatments of some kind at least once a week to prevent my hair from getting worse and improving the health or my hair , I usually use hair masks once a week but you have to leave them on for 10-20 minutes plus spend time applying and washing the mask out which is not idea when going to work early in mornings , my time is taken up. I first heard about this Aussie 3 minute miracle when I was reading LOOK magazine and saw an advert about it , I was really intrigued about a treatment claiming to improve hair in just 3 minutes. I use this treatment after conditioning my hair and apply to my hair not my scalp for 3 minutes and my hair is transformed It is hard to comb through my hair and now using this Aussie product I can easily comb through my hair. I love this product it also has a nice mint smell.
My hair can get quite dry and to try and increase the length of time between cuts, I like to use a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. This gives my hair a bit of pampering and a really good condition so stops it feeling so dry. I have tried various different masks and conditioners and one of those that I have tried is this 3 minute miracle from Aussie.
I had heard good things about the Aussie range, with people that I knew saying that they smelt great and were really effective. The three minute miracle is a deep conditioning treatment for dry and damaged hair. It is said to 'leave hair looking and feeling healthy and shiny in one treatment'. The principle ingredient is Australian Balm Mint. The idea of the treatment is that it nourishes damaged hair, repairs and smoothes rough cuticles and restores shine. It retails at around £4.99 for 250ml.
The product comes in a white plastic bottle with basic labelling. It is not particularly attractively packaged but the labelling is clear and concise. On opening the bottle, you are immediately hit by the gorgeous scent of the conditioner. It is quite minty but also fresh and has a hint of fruit to it. The mint is dominant but not overpowering - I am not really a fan of mint smelling toiletries as they just remind me of toothpaste - but this is quite pleasant smelling. The conditioner is thick, creamy and rich.
To apply, I put a generous amount onto my wet, washed hair concentrating on the mid lengths and ends. I leave this for the recommended three minutes to work and then rinse it out with warm water. The conditioner is fairly easy to rinse out and after a few minutes of rinsing, my hair feels clear of the product. After use, my hair does feel instantly in better condition. It definitely feels less dry and has added shine too. It does not leave my hair feeling greasy at all. I do not find that the effects of the conditioner last for long though and it is a treatment that I find that I need to use at least twice a week to keep my hair looking healthy. Based on twice a week use, the bottle lasts me only 4-6 weeks so I do find it quite an expensive product in this sense. Other treatments requiring just once a week usage may be more expensive initially but work out more cost effective for me.
Overall, this is a decent conditioning treatment that does have a positive effect on my hair - unfortunately, this just doesn't last long enough in my opinion. It smells lovely and is easy to use, I have just used better treatments previously.
Overall my hair manages to stay in reasonably good condition when I look after it properly, but like most I suppose I am guilty of not looking after it as well as I could, and I often get split/dry ends which I feel are as a result of heat damage and frequently having my hair coloured. I therefore like to treat myself now and again to a "luxury" conditioner, which is much needed to keep my hair looking good.
One of my favourite conditioners to buy when I feel like my hair is needing a bit of TLC is this Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor conditioner. This product claims to restore manageability and shine, and is especially for damaged hair.
This product comes in a white plastic bottle with the product information in cream/purple on the front. The bottle stands "upside down" meaning you squirt the product out of what is essentially the bottom of the bottle. There is no lid, you simply squeeze and the product is released through a little hole. I like the upside down style of the bottle as it means when you are nearing the end of it you can easily get every last drop out. There is no leakage from the bottle despite it not having a lid as such.
The information on the back of the bottle tells you how to use the conditioner. I like the style of the text on the Aussie Miracle products - it is written in an informal, friendly style. Their motto is "there's more to life than hair, but it's a good place to start!" To use this conditioner you simply apply it to wet hair after washing, and leave for between 1-3 minutes. The perfect time to give your legs a quick shave while you wait on the conditioner sinking in! I apply it mostly to the ends of my hair but smooth a small amount up close to the roots. I don't like putting too much conditioner close to the roots of my hair as I find it can leave my hair greasy.
I think this conditioner smells gorgeous. It has a fruity smell that reminds me of peaches. It contains mint balm extract but I don't think it smells minty as such, just fruity and fresh. The smell is evident while you are using the product and also lingers on your hair for an hour or two after drying, but I find the smell doesn't last all day.
My hair is usually really difficult to brush through after washing, however when I use this conditioner the comb glides through a lot easier. It still has the odd tangle but this conditioner definitely helps. After I dry my hair it is noticeably softer, shinier and smoother. It doesn't leave my hair weighed down or greasy in any way. I don't use this conditioner every day, I keep it for a "treat" instead and use it around once a week. This means one bottle lasts me quite a while, I would estimate 3 months of using about once a week, so approximately 12 applications on medium length hair.
One bottle of this conditioner will set you back around £5 which in my opinion is pricey. However it can frequently be found on offer e.g. 3 for £10 so I will usually stock up when I find an offer like this. It still does work out dearer than bog-standard conditioners, but for an intensive conditioner I don't think this is too bad, especially compared to salon prices.
All in all I love this conditioner and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with damaged hair. 5* from me. Thanks for reading/rating.
Previously I never really used conditioner on my hair, but after receiving some conditioner as part of an online trial, I started to get used to using it regularly on my hair, and I really could see the difference, especially when I straighten my hair every day. I got sent another sample this time from Aussie for this 3 minute miracle shine and after loving the sample, I thought I would give the whole bottle a go. A bottle of this product costs around a fiver, but it can be got on offers at certain times in supermarkets and high street chemists. I didn't mind paying that price having tried the sample, and given that I wouldn't be using it everyday, but rather once a week.
This 3 minute miracle shine claims to be effective on 'dull, tired hair' that is 'begging to shine'. Now, I wouldn't maybe call my hair dull, but at the same time, it could definitely be shinier. On the front of this product it Aussie states that it contains Australian Ginseng extract and pearl powder. It is meant to have a 'nourishing formula' to 'revitalize' and add 'gloss' to every strand. Australian Ginseng is supposedly recognised as having 'power boosting' properties, not that I was aware of this previously! It really does claim to be effective in nourishing and boosting the shine of your hair in 3 minutes!
I use this product after I have washed my hair. It suggests that you leave it on for between 1 -3 minutes, so I always leave it for the maximum to ensure I get the maximum benefit. It was very easy to apply to hair, and it washed out very easily after the time was up. I can't say that the product has a overly strong scent, however, what you do smell is a fresh pleasant scent.
Even after using this product for the first time, I could immediately see the difference in my hair. THere was a real shine to my hair and almost a bounce to it. The feeling you get when you leave the hair dresser. It also made my hair remarkably soft and I couldn;t help but keep touching my hair to feel how soft it felt. I even got a couple of comments from people at work about how shiny my hair looked! My hair is fine and flyaway, so I don't usually get too many comments on it!
All in all, I use this product once a week just to help condition my hair after a week of blow drying and straightening. Every time I use it, it has the same effect on my hair - leaving it super shiny and super soft, and looking in really great condition. I think it is worth its money as it really does do what it claims!
I would love to say I have long flowing locks but in reality I have something that a bird would feel very at home with!
So when I saw yet another advert claiming to be a miracle (and it was on offer!) I thought why not? On the bottle it states 'for dull tired hair begging to shine' my hair doesn't beg it screams out for help! So for £3.00 odd for 250ml I went for it!
It has Australian ginseng with extract of pearl powder what did I have to lose?
The first thing that appealed to me was the smell, it wasn't a girly smell but one that smelt clean. The directions were easy to follow although I needed my glasses to read it but that's more to do with my age! Easy to apply just massage over the hair after shampooing and leave for 3 minutes simples! After easily ringing my miracle out I was surprised at how easily the comb went through, no major wresting and no usual hair loss! After drying my hair there was a lovely shine to it, so much so my son asked if I had polished my head! But the truth would come out the next morning so off to bed I went!
In the morning after waking up I was embraced by the still fragrant smell of my hair! So off I trundle to go and commence my usual battle! My brush flowed through my hair with the minimal amount of tangles what a relief!
It is now 3 days on and my hair still smells clean and fresh, shiny and the most amazing thing tangle free! I would really recommend this product!
Dry or damaged hair in need or a miracle? Try the 3 Minute Miracle and you'll be amazed.
The rich conditioner is suitable for any hair type to give your hair a deep conditioning treat or a weekly boost.
The conditioner is nice and thick and will stay on your hair - not drip off. But not too thick! A small amount the size of a large marble would be enough for mid length hair but I tend to slather loads of it on, wrap my hair up in a towel and let the magic happen while I relax in the bath...And it does only take 3 minutes! You can leave it on for longer if you wish but the 3 minutes are plenty if you're giving your hair a deep conditioning. You can also use the 3 minute miracle every time you wash your hair and then only a minute to a minute and half is enough for the conditioner to work.
The conditioner deeply conditions the hair and makes it look healthier, shiner and generally in better condition. Since I started using the 3 minute miracle on a weekly basis my hair feels stronger, healthier and I have few split ends.
It smells great as well. It has a sweet flowery smell that just makes you want to use it more and more. The lovely scent stays on your hair for around a day.
The Aussie range comes in lovely cream bottles with colourful writing which tends to mainly be in Blues and Purple texts that really stand out against the cream background. Each bottle gives you instructions of how to use that are straight forward and easy. The Aussie range keeps the text relaxed and playful which is endearing and it makes you feel like they are trustworthy. I have a small complaint over the 3 Minute Miracle bottle. The conditioner comes out of a small hole on the base of the bottle and you have to squeeze it to get any out. Once you're halfway down the bottle it's difficult to get out and you really have to pummel the bottle to get any out. I know it's only a small issue but as I love the product so much that is the only criticism I can find.
I love all the Aussie range but the 3 Minute Miracle is my favourite. It works wonders on your hair and I use it religiously once a week and my hair has never felt or looked better. The range is roughly £4-6 per bottle and its worth it as the bottle lasts ages if you are only using it once a week/fortnight.
I ran out of my regular conditioner so decided to use this product - in the form of a sample sachet which came free in a magazine.
The product is a very rich and creamy intensive conditioner. The packet says this product is for heat damaged hair - ideal for mine as I use my straighteners at least every other day!
However, this product is definitely a teatment and not a substitute for a regular-use conditioner as it is a little heavy!
After I had THOROUGHLY rinsed it out and dried my hair and used my usual heated appliances, my hair was definitely sleeker and smoother. The 3 minute miracle also left my hair soft and shiny and smelling really nice. It was really easy to use as well and 3 minutes isn't long, just slap it on your hair, then wash the rest of yourself, then rinse it out. Make sure you rinse it well though, as it is very rich and creamy. My hair is really thick but I dread to think what would happen if you didn't rinse this thoroughly out of fine hair.
I have used most of the Aussie range as I find it does a good job for my hair.
My hair has been through hell, coloured hundreds of times, bleached 6 times and not to mention heat damage every single day, as a result it can be very dry and brittle, and look disgusting so I always need something to help make it look better.
I picked up the 3 Minute Miracle conditioner as it stood out to me because it promised to deliver so much.
And not to mention the packaging always makes me weak at the knees, its my kind of packaging! Its very cute and stylish, and just eye grabbing ( not to mention hand grabbing! )
Its weird shaped, stands on the part where the product comes from.
On the front is a sticker with information on the product, also the AUSSIE logo and the name of the product itself.
Over the back is also more information which you may find useful.
The bottle contains 250ml of conditioner, and you can expect to pay around £3.00/4.00 even up to £5.00 depending on where you get it. I would recommend Superdrug as they always seem to have offers on with this certain brand.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor is enriched with Australian Balm Mint. This nourishing treatment gets to work fast on damaged hair, repairing and smoothing rough cuticles, restoring manageability and shine.
The bottle doesn't have a lid, instead it has a seal at the bottom which you take off and there is a tiny hole, this is where the conditioner comes out from when you squeeze, dont worry! if you leave it, it wont come out! only squeezing squirts it out!
The smell of the conditioner is VERY nice, I personally love sweet things and the smell of this always reminds me of bubblegum! I know so many kids who would love this, and probably try to eat it.
The conditioner is quite thick but comes out thinly, its a good consistency, Its also very easy to put through my hair and whilst doing so my hair feels soft, it untangles any pieces of hair that were tangled, and feels very 'fixing' on me.
I love my hair after using this, it can really perk up a bad hair day and turn it into a GHD!
My hair feels silky, looks shiny and not to mention smells great once fully dried.
The only problem I have with this is that I find it quite hard to squeeze the bottle, but I am a weak duckling!
Over all, a feel good conditioner!
My hairdresser recommended the Aussie range to me and my mom as she said she thought it was the best one out there, I thought 'yeah right, you're probably getting paid to say that' but I can honestly say I agree with her! I use this every day, as I wash my hair everyday as I love the feeling of fresh smelling clean hair, I think that's a beauty must have! I also use this product every day because I straighten or curly my hair everyday too, which is a lot of heat on one little head! This can normally dry out and damage hair; however with this product in my hair, (and heat defence) I can honestly say my hair has never looked better in all its days! My main positive is the way it does really moisturize your hair! It leaves it soft and smooth! And I can even go 6 months without going to my hairdressers with virtually no split ends! This proves how good it is at locking the moisture in the hair and preventing damage when styling! My second favourite positive about this product is the way that it smells, it smells absolutely gorgeous, and even at the end of a hard day's work my hair still smells fresh (and my boyfriend even comments on how nice it smells)! There however are a few downsides to this product, they are: It's too light, which makes you use more to make sure all your hair is being covered and conditioned, which therefore costs more, which isn't good! As I've just mentioned, the price is also a downside, however it is around the same price as other reputable brands, they are all too expensive in my eyes! But I can honestly say you get what you pay for, and this is definitely worth your hard earned cash!
I have used this for a number of years. It comes in a tube that contains 250ml of conditioner and costs £4.69 in Boots. You can often find this on offer in Boots 3 for 2.
The conditioner itself is described by Aussie as a 3 minute miracle reconstuctor for dry or damaged hair. It claims that after one treatment hair will be left healthy and shiny after just one treatment. This particular conditioner contains Australian balm mint to smooth and soften cuticles, as well as penetrating hair inside and out to make it soft and supple.
This conditioner is simple to use you simply wash your hair as normal and then apply to wet hair. You can leave it in for between 1-3 minutes depending on how much of a treat your hair needs. I always leave it for 3 minutes to give my hair a good treat. This conditioner has a really nice smell, I think it has a mild minty smell. You only need to use a small amount to get your hair well covered. It feels very rich and creamy. One thing I have to mention is the excellent design of this bottle. The opening is at the bottom and much like a shower gel you simply squeeze the bottle to get some out. The benefit of this design is that the conditioner which is very thick slides to the bottom of the bottle so you get every last drop out of the bottle.
After 3 minutes you simply rinse this conditioner out. It rinses cleanly and doesn't leave a residue on the hair. After drying my hair I noticed it was soft and much more managable. It also had a noticable shine to it. My hair is highlighted and is normally very dry and damaged from heat styling. My split ends were smoothed down and my hair felt really deeply conditioned.
I would recommend this for all hair types particularly dry and damaged hair. You can also get this in a sachet to try it contains 15ml and costs 99p so if you are not sure this is for you, then you can try it first and see if you like it! I use this at least once a week so a bottle normally lasts me a good 4/5 months.
Product: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
I bought the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle treatment from my local Boots, i paid £4.69 for the 250ml sized bottle.
The first thing I noticed about the product was the smell, a slightly fruity scent which lingered for a long time afterwards, very pleasant and sweet smelling.
The packaging is a 250ml sized cylinder shaped recyclable bottle. You squeeze the bottle to release the product. The product is released from a hole which is underneath a sticky label which you peel back to reveal. I was a bit sceptical at first that this didn't seem very secure and the product would leak easily as the hole is permanently left uncovered once the label as been removed, although everything as been fine and no leaks or spillages have occurred, I just stand the bottle upright, the hole obviously facing upwards.
The treatment works like a normal conditioner. I apply the Aussie Take the Heath 3 Minute Miracle onto clean, wet hair, straight after shampooing.
I use around the same amount size as a 50p coin. I then apply the product all throughout my hair, ensuring even coverage. The product is quite thick and lathers really well into my hair, I leave the treatment on for at least 3 minutes and then rinse.
Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle leaves hair frizz free, tangle free, glossy and soft to the touch. Overall a lot more manageable and leaves my hair feeling that little more luxurious.
To keep my hair in tip top condition i'll continue to use the 3 Minute Miracle at least twice a week.
I'd definitely recommend this product to other people, affordable, easy to use and what's best is that it's a product that really works.
You can buy the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle in the UK from Boots as well as other stores like Superdrug, Amazon and many Supermarkets; from Boots the product costs £4.69 for 250ml.

I paid alot of money to have some hair extentions bonded in for my holiday to Egypt. I was going in August, so I knew the heat and amount it would get wet (i spend alot of time in the reefs on holiday) it would most definatley ruin my extentions. Ive always passed Aussie in boots. Aussie is available widley in the UK, im not sure about other countries. You can buy this in sachets for 99p, or the bottle for 4 pounds something. Boots usualy have buy 2 get one free on, which is why I thought id get this.
The bottle has no lid, its a push in bottom, which is handy if youre like me and always forget to put the lids back on. The bottle tells you to leave the treatment on for 3 minutes, which I did. The conditioner is pinky in colour and smells really sweet, its hard to describe. Ive read reviews where people hated the smell, but I loved it, so if you like girly smells, you will most probably like it.
Afterwards my extentions where alot less frizzy and alot more manageable. You could definatley tell the difference on the days I used this and the days I didnt bother.
I will add, that on one occassion, I came out of the shower and fell asleep for 30 minutes with the conditioner on my head (I only came out to see what my boyfriend was watching! we finally found an english chanel in egypt lol). When I woke up, I immediatley washed it off. When dry, i couldnt believe how soft my extentions felt. It seriously was like getting a new set done! So I began doing this every other day, and I know i will in the future if i get some done again.
I highly reccommend this to anyone who uses extentions or worries about dry hair.
I'm a total convert to the whole range of Aussie Three minute miracle conditioners - they're the only product that really feels like it is working on my hair. I colour my hair a lot and as a result the general condition of my hair is rather on the damaged side - this conditioner is lovely and thick and detangles my hair in an instant. The smell is not bad - I wouldn't say I love it but it's not horrible... maybe just a little strong. It really doesn't have to be left on the hair long and rinses out easily to leave my hair soft right to the tip and easy to manage and nicely shiney. I do have to be careful not to overload my hair with it though because it can make the roots greasy quickly. I think the price is a little on the pricey side but supermarkets and chemists quite often have offers in (like 2 products for £5) which if you look out for and buy a few bottles in bulk makes it a bit more purse friendly. I would highly recommend to most people but perhaps not to those who have quite fine hair as it may weigh it down and cause it to be too greasy too quickly. Also, the product does last a fairly long time as a little does go a long way - peeling the label off the bottom whilst in the shower is very tricky as so slippery so I would recommend definitely taking this label off before you get in. Also, make sure, to make the product last longer, that once you get towards the end that you screw the lid off the bottom as there is still lots inside to be used that just won't squeeze out.
