WHAT IS IT?
A shampoo by Aussie that is developed to be used every day and give good clean results as well as helping to combat frizz.
This Frizz Miracle shampoo is thick and massages easily into my hair and scalp to give me a thick lather that feels like it's cleaning my hair straightaway. It doesn't smell as nice as other Aussie shampoos but I don't think their hair products smell as nice as they used to. The shampoo rinses out of my hair very easily and I do not struggle to remove it all.
WHAT I THINK
I like this shampoo because my hair feels very soft and clean after I have used it but it does not stop my hair being frizzy even though I only get mild frizz sometimes. I would not buy it again because Aussie is quite expensive so only worth spending extra on if they work how they should on problems like frizz control.
My hair is so soft after I use this shampoo that it is hard to style so I have to use extra styling products and that takes away from the clean feel of my hair. It shines brightly after I've washed it though and looks and feels very clean, I like using this shampoo on a Sunday morning when I can brush my hair and leave it loose because I am not going anywhere. I like the fresh smell on my hair after I have washed it and how it lasts for quite a long time.
A 250ml bottle of Frizz Miracle shampoo costs about £4 and that would be very good if it worked to stop my hair getting frizzy but I do not think it is worth spending that much when all it does is wash my hair like other shampoo.

I tend to swop and change my shampoo between five different brands l have found that work for me, depending what is on special offer and what my mood is when shopping. Aussie is one of the brands that suits my hair.
I like the smell of this, despite it being a little strange as it reminds me a bit of Benylin, the children's cough medicine, which I rather like the taste of! The shampoo is a think liquid, cream in colour and slightly silky looking. Although its thick it comes out of the flip cap quite easily.
The shampoo is called "Frizz Miricle" and I find it does keep my hair, which is thick, long and fizzy/curly feeling clean and moisturised. The shampoo is obviously tailored towards frizzy hair, and I do find when my hair is long, as it is at the moment, it becomes quite frizzy and flyaway I don't keep it managed. The shampoo lathers well and my hair always feels really clean and soft after using this. I don't find it gets greasy quickly after washing, like with other shampoos I have tried in the past.
I have used a number of the Aussie shampoos including the moist one and the one for long hair. I have to say all the formulas I have tried seem to work just as well on me and I can't really tell the difference between each of the shampoo formulas after using them on my hair!
It's quite a simple, traditional shaped cream bottle with a plastic purple lid which has a push-down opener on the top of it. The bottle has 300ml of shampoo in.
It's a formula with blue gum extract in it alongside the chemical ingredients which you would need to be a chemist to understand!
It's one of the more expensive brands I use costing around £3 a bottle. However I don't use much per wash, around a fifty pence piece blob and I also keep two shampoos on the go (one cheap, one more expensive) and rotate them as I find this stops my hair getting greasy so fast. It's almost as though if I use one product all the time on my hair it quickly becomes too used to it. They are very often on offer in Boots, I only buy them when they are on offer, and I just buy which ever formula of Aussie is on offer as they seem to all be very good for my hair.
I like this shampoo in as far as it washes my hair as well as the others in the Aussie range, however I don't feel it particularly adds anything to stop my hair being any more or less frizzy or flyaway than the other shampoos in the range.
I have got quite into the Aussie hair care products over the last couple of months since I discovered their lovely leave in conditioner spray and I stocked up on various different ones to try while they were on 3 for £10 in Boots a while back.
Aussie products are not the cheapest when you consider that you can often get some shampoos and conditioners for about £1 in the supermarkets, pound shops etc but Aussie is not ridiculously expensive and you can usually find their products, including this shampoo, for about £3 to £5 each.
The shampoo comes in a 300 ml bottle which I find a decent size and not too small for the price. Oddly the matching conditioner comes in a slightly smaller bottle which I suppose is Aussies way of telling us to be a bit more generous with the shampoo and go easy on the conditioner! The bottle has a top where you have to press one side down to open the hole, and then squeeze some out. This is quite practical and I prefer it to a lid which you have to fully remove. The bottle looks quite standard with the typical Aussie branding and it looks nice enough.
The shampoo is very thick and creamy looking, with a bit of a shine to it. It is not too liquidy and runny and it never slips through my fingers or slops around. It actually looks more like a typical conditioner than a shampoo in my opinion. It creates a lot of lather when I rub it into my hair. This lather is easy to rinse out without leaving any residue or heaviness in my hair. The shampoo has an unusual but quite nice scent to it. It is not really a salon or chemically smell at all, but more of a natural fruity or plant smell. The bottle tells us the shampoo is made with blue gum leaves from the Australian eucalyptus tree so I assume that is what it smells of! It also contains aloe Vera.
This particular shampoo is intended for those with frizzy, dry or fly away hair and it is designed to de-frizz, smoothen and control the hair. I do have those problems as my hair is naturally wavy and can become quite frizzy and a bit dry at the ends on occasion. Defrizzing and smoothing are properties that I do like to look out for in my hair products. I definitely think this shampoo is great for those with dry hair as the shampoo feels so rich and moisturising due to its thick and creamy texture. As for defrizzing and smoothing I have not tried the shampoo on its own as I always use conditioner, so it is difficult to pinpoint what that shampoo has done and what is due to the matching conditioner or defrizzing conditioning milk (a leave in serum type product which I recently reviewed), but I can say for sure that using all of the range together has given me great results.
My hair feels completely clean with no build up and it is not weighed down or left greasy, which is always a risk with very moisturising products for dry hair. It is very easy to comb through and is detangled after washing. Although that is probably more the conditioner which detangles, when I rinse out the shampoo my hair already feels quite smooth and not matted or knotted as it can be after washing out some shampoos. These frizz miracle products leave my hair manageable and shiny.
Overall I really like this shampoo and the whole Frizz Miracle range from Aussie. I am sure I will definitely buy this again and I recommend it to anyone who suffers from frizz or unruly hair.
My sister brought me this shampoo to use as my hair is rather frizzy due to the fact it is wavy and ever since then i have been hooked on aussie products.
The aussie frizz miracle shampoo smells like you could actually eat it, it smells abit like sweeties and lets face it who doesnt want to smell that!! I use this product a couple of times a week and it really just de frizzes my hair and to top it off my hair smells absolutely divine.
The shampoo is made out of australian blue gum leaves which are from the australian eucalyptus tree and they believe it contains soothing properties which makes the hair smooth and controls the frizz which i actually completely buy into because my hair feels absolutely great after i use it. The price for a 300ml bottle is around £3 but i think every penny is worth it seems that it does the job!!
I've become a convert to Aussies range of shampoos and conditioners. Usually, I'd go for the luscious long but they didn't have that in stock last time I tried to pick some up so, after trying to decide which was next best suited to me, I decided on the frizz miracle shampoo.
I combined this with the reconstructor 3 minute miracle because split ends and frizziness are the two main problems I have with my hair and I have yet to find a product that successfully combats this.
First Impressions And Use
This shampoo is actually a very pretty colour, not that that matters really. At the end of the day it's only going to end up rubbed into my hair and rinsed off, but it's an almost pearlescent light blue colour and a consistency that reminds me more of a conditioner then a shampoo. This is typical of the Aussie range and something I quite like as I've found that unlike other shampoo's these don't dry out my hair but actually leave it soft and smooth.
The smell takes some getting used to. Like the Luscious long, this smells of a rather sweet eucalyptus. This was very off putting to start with, I didn't exactly like the idea of my hair smelling of eucalyptus. I've grown to quite like it though so if you're not a fan to start with give it time, it does grow on you I promise!
The shampoo rubbed into my hair and lathered up very easily producing a lather that wasn't overly thick but at the same time substantial enough to convince me it was cleaning my hair. The smell does become stronger as you rub it in. The lather also feels quite creamy, another reassurance that it isn't drying my hair.
Rinsing this off this doesn't present any problems, it literally just falls off on contact with water.
As soon as I rinse this off my hair it feels soft, clean and tangle free. These shampoo's do soften my hair so although I need the conditioner I have very dry hair, those of you without this problem could probably go without.
The scent was very noticeable after I had washed the shampoo off but not after I had conditioned, the conditioner scent did linger though so it may just be that the conditioner had overpowered it and if you skip this I see no reason why the shampoo scent wouldn't linger. After washing my hair was incredibly soft and smooth - in this respect the results achieved from this brand are better then any other I have tried. Having said that, although the shampoo does, without question, go some way to softening my hair I do think this is mainly down to the conditioner.
I have just come to the end of the bottle, which lasted 10 washes with my hair length reaching half way down my back. After the first wash I didn't really notice too much of a difference, but after the second my hair did noticeably start to lose it's frizz and be easier to control and style in the mornings. Now I've finished the bottle my hair is completely controlled with no frizz and just the occasional flyaway when it's windy outside. Other then this it's completely solved the problem.
As far as I can see this is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
The bottle is recyclable and the shelf life, once opened, is 12months although I can't see it lasting this long or even close.
It does however, contain SLS and several parabens so is one to avoid if you're either concerned about or sensitive to these.
Price, Availability And Recommendation
I bought mine from ASDA where it costs £3.40 for a 250ml bottle. It is often on offer for 3 bottles for £10. Boots also have it at a slightly more expensive usual price but the same offer. This is the cheapest I have found it but it is worth shopping around as it is widely available.
From personal experience I can't recommend it highly enough, it's lived up to it's name for me by controlling my frizz and almost completely controlling my flyaways. It gets the full 5 out of 5 from me. However, having read some other reviews it doesn't seem to work on everyones hair. ASDA sell tester sachets for £1 (or 4 for £3) so it might be worth picking one up for you to see if it works on your hair. I will say that when it does work, it really does work well but it's not suited to everyone.
I love Aussie, and have tried a few of their products and loved them, the ones I had got in the past had always lived up to their expectations, so because my hair is so damaged, its become extremely frizzy and split, I didn't hesitate to pick this up.
I payed around £5.00/6.00 for this from Superdrug, along with the shampoo I also got the conditioner which was included in the price. The shampoo bottle contains 300ml.
The bottle is like any other Aussie bottle really, it has the logo on the front, with underneath FRIZZ MIRACLE, it also has information about what it uses, what it does and how much your bottle contains.
This shampoo promises to banish them annoying flyaway hairs, smooth and get rid of all the frizz leaving you with sleek and silky hair!
Aussie Frizz Miracle shampoo contains Australian blue gum leaves, I have noticed though that a few others also contain this...makes me wonder why they choose to use this on the front of the bottle..
The shampoo is a thick texture and is a light blue colour, it smells delicious, reminds me of bubble gum!
I used around a 50p amount and massaged it into my hair, my hair felt quite tough and it didn't lather up well at all, my hair felt extremely dry even though it was wet, I was really hoping for good things from this!
It was really easy to wash out but my hair felt awful, thank god the conditioner made it feel better! I could finally run my fingers through without pulling out my hair, after washing the conditioner out of my hair, my hair had got the dry feeling back..I towel dried my hair and found it impossible to get a brush through it even though it had just been conditioned, I couldn't believe Aussie had let me down!
After I had managed to dry my hair, I found it looked a lot more drier than usual, the frizz had just gotten worse, and it was very hard to manage.
I continued to use this shampoo and conditioner until it ran out but still there was no difference what so ever, my hair just remained a dry frizz bomb.
Don't waste your money, Aussies other products which are not meant for frizz, work 100x better than this product, I don't recommend to anybody, well maybe if you want dry hair!
Having frizzy, curly hair, I am always on the lookout for a product that might be able to tame it. I saw the Aussie Frizz Miracle on offer in Tesco so picked up a bottle.
The shampoo is quite thick and a glossy blue in appearance. The fragrance is sweet, but exactly what it is, I could not say - possibly some kind of fruit?! You don't need much to get a good lather. I have shoulder length hair and use about the amount equivalent to the size of a 10 pence piece. The lather felt light in my hair and washed out easily.
This product left my hair feeling softer than usual and more manageable. I still use a serum to help shape my hair, but Aussie Frizz Miracle seems to have made this easier and on days (usually the weekend) when I get my hair a break from styling products, my hair is more controllable.
I have continued to use this product and after a couple of weeks, my curls were more defined and even started to fall into ringlets - something not seen on my head since I was a little girl! I have also found my hair has less split ends and is generally stronger, with less breakage when I comb my hair. The natural highlights in my hair also started to really show through. Normally I only get these in the summer after being in the Sun. My hair, which is quite often dull looking, now has a healthy shine.
The bottle is a normal rounded bottle, which can slip out of wet hands quite easily in the shower and the cap is a press top, which opens a small gap in the lid, which allows you to dispense the shampoo. If, like me, you leave the cap open, this can clog quite easily and it's not an easy task to clear it again.
This isn't the cheapest shampoo on the market, coming in at nearly £4 a bottle. I will only buy this when it's on offer. As far as calling it a miracle, I don't think I would go that far, is my frizz isn't completely tamed by the shampoo, but it certainly makes a big difference.
Ive used aussie a few times before so decided to try the frizz miracle shampoo. I opened the bottle and the smell was lovely as always with aussie products, the whole room filled with the scent, I rubbed it in happy with the product. I then dried my hair and it felt soft, sleek, shiny and smelt divine, even the day after! The only problem I had was that I still had a few fly-aways but despite that another amazing product from Aussie!
I've been using some of the Aussie range of haircare products for a while now, I've tried the skip a step shampoo and conditioner in one and the 3 minute miracle and been vey impressed with both. However what my hair really needs is treating for being flyaway and full of static so when I noticed the Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo for flyaway, frizzy, "please sit still" hair I just had to give it a go.
On the front of the bottle it tells us this shampoo contains Australian Blue Gum leaves extract which controls frizzes and smoothes flyaways. These Blue Gum leaves are from the Eucalyptus tree but rest assured this doesn't smell of menthol!
The packaging is standard Aussie cream and purple and the lid is one which you press one side to lift the other. I paid £3.45 for this shampoo which I don't consider to be a particularly reasonable price, I always think Aussie products are overpriced even if I like them.
The shampoo is thick and a light blue colour and smells sweet, it's hard to say exactly what it smells of but it's quite close to vanilla but thankfully doesn't leave a vanilla fragrance on the hair, I don't really like the scent of vanilla!
I always try shampoos without their matching conditioners before I write a review so I get a proper idea of how they work as they have claims they should fulfil without the addition of conditioner.
I found this shampoo lathers up easily and rinses out quickly but it did feel a bit harsh, strangely it felt like it dried my hair out even while my hair was wet so I was hoping this was just a temporary feeling.
It wasn't. When I dried my hair it felt very brittle and not at all soft or silky like it normally feels. I'm not sure why this is really, I can only imagine Aussie are under the impression to have flyaway hair you have to have oily hair and I don't, I have quite dry hair.
Once dry my hair was still feeling stripped of the bit of oil I have and brittle to the touch so I wasn't particularly happy about that. I also noticed as soon as I ran a brush through it the familiar crackle of static made itself heard and my hair was having a full blown static attack! Nothing like the promise of treating "please sit still" hair. I found I had to apply lots of serum to my hair just to get it to calm down to it's normal level of static so this shampoo actually made things worse.
After paying £3.45 for this 300ml bottle of shampoo I'm loathe to waste it so I have continued with both the shampoo and the conditioner (review to follow) but the shampoo doesn't do what it claims to do. I'm very disappointed as I've been pleased with other Aussie products and I don't recommend this to anyone who suffers from the dreaded static and flyaway problems that I have.
Not a success and not recommended.
