Aussie is my favourite hair care brand for those times that my hair is feeing and looking as though it is in need of some extra TLC. Basically when it is looking dry and feeling a bit brittle this is the first brand that I reach for. I have used loads of other hair care brands but I always come back to this one because for my hair it is the best.
I use the miracle moist shampoo and conditioner in conjunction with each other as I find that they are much more effective this way than using them separately. I also use the 3 minute miracle intensive conditioner once or twice a week when I feel I need it but the shampoo and conditioner I use every day when my hair needs them until I finish the bottles.
Usually by using them for a couple of weeks I can repair whatever damage I have caused my hair and get it back to looking and feeling healthy again.
The conditioner costs 5.99 which I think is a good price because of how effective it is. Aussie is also on offer a lot of the time so you can often pick it up cheaper.
It smells great and leaves hair fresh but more importantly from the first time that you use it the conditioner will help repair your hair.
It is designed to be used on dry and damaged hair and this is only the type of hair that it is really suitable for as for normal hair this is far too rich and will weigh hair down and make it appear greasy. I would never dream of using this daily and only use it when I feel that my hair really needs it.
It soaks in to dry hair and really conditions it and even from the first wash the results are noticeable. Hair looks much healthier and is much softer and shiner. It just looks in much better condition and even looks thicker and fuller. I try and be careful not to apply this to my roots as most of the damage and dryness on my hair happens on the ends. If I apply this to my roots and leave it for any length of time then it makes them greasy.
This is a fabulous conditioner and one of the best I have ever used but it is definitely not one to be used on every ones hair and should only be used on very dry hair. For dry hair this is hard to beat.
I have to use a conditioner on my hair every time I wash it as the ends are very dry but I have the added complication that the roots are also very greasy at he same time so I have to be really careful about which type I choose to use. I have used Aussie hair care products a few times and whilst I do like most of them i cannot say that I rate their Miracle Moist Conditioner very highly as it simply doesn''''t suit my particular hair type. Since I have has my hair dyed a lighter colour it has become more porous and feels even drier at the ends and so i have to use a good quality conditioner. Tsione is expensive for what it is at four pounds a bottle but it''''s often on offer in supermarkets. It''''s thick and white and creamy in colour and it smells lovely on my hair but after I have rinsed it off and then i try to dry and style it i find that my hair seems to feel and look very limp and lank and lacks any volume,. I have tried using less conditioner but it never seems to make much difference and so this is yet another one i have relegated to the back of my bathroom cabinet. Not recommended.
I am a huge fan of the Aussie brand (I have all ready written a review on the Aussie Miracle moist shampoo and the Aussie dual personality; heat protection and straightening leave in spray). The Aussie miracle moist conditioner follows suit with the rest of the brand as being another high quality and trustworthy product. Using it is a pleasure as it and a subtle sweet smell and it takes effects as you can instantly feel soft silky hair once it has been applied. It works into my hair very easily but I have found it is best to leave it a few minutes before washing it out to have the best results. If my hair is feeling really damaged, be it the sun or going swimming, then I like to apply the conditioner to slightly damp hair and leave it to work in for 10-15 minutes before jumping in the shower to wash it out. Once it is time to dry my hair the conditioner leaves it relativity tangle free and very easy to brush when wet. Once dry my hair feels soft and healthy for days afterwards. When reviewing the Aussie miracle moist shampoo I said that it works best along side the conditioner and if you want the shampoo you should buy the conditioner as well. However the conditioner has had the desired effect when used in conjunction with any regular shampoo, so unless you really want the Aussie shampoo, I would personally recommend just buying the conditioner and using whatever shampoo you want unless you want to treat your hair a bit more.
I am a huge fan of Aussie hair care products. After being impressed with their shampoos and hairsprays, I decided to try out their conditioner. Me and conditioner don't normally get on, and I find myself getting product build up and greasy hair when using it. I have tried numerous brands of conditioner, so I am always doubtful when trying out a new one. Aussie offer a range of conditioners, but I decided to opt for the 'Miracle Moist' conditioner.
I got mine from Boots, but these are also available in Superdrug, online and in some larger supermarkets. They retail for £4.69 which at first seems quite expensive, but I feel that the price is fair for such a good quality conditioner. I always tend to buy Aussie products when they are on offer (3 for £10 which gives you a great saving). When this offer is on, I like to stock up because then it saves you over £1.00 per product - sometimes even more depending on what you buy.
You get 250ml of conditioner in the white bottle and this is about standard size. There is a purple lid, and the standard Aussie design printed on the front with the kangaroo. What caught my attention was that this is targeted for people with dry and damaged hair. I blow dry and straighten my hair on a daily basis, so as you can imagine the ends do get quite dry!
You only need a really small amount of this conditioner to do a great job (and I have long hair). The first thing I noticed was its delicious scent. It smells just like bubblegum, but without being too sweet. I really like the scent of this, and it is a huge plus for me. Not just that, but the lovely bubblegum scent stays on your hair once dry. I apply this all over my hair but I pay particular attention to the ends of my hair. This is because this is where it is most dry, and where split ends form. I normally leave this on for around one minute before rinsing off.
It washes off really well and with ease. I noticed immediately with wet hair how much better the condition of my hair was. Once I dried off my hair, I could not believe how shiny and smooth it looked and felt. My hair was much softer and easier to brush through. My hair can often get quite tangled, but when I use this I find my hair much more manageable to style. The results of this are fantastic, and everything that I have ever wanted in a conditioner. I am now nearing the end of this bottle (which has lasted me a good month with daily use), and I will be purchasing a new one right away.
I think the reason for its effectiveness is that the product contains Australian macadamia nut oil and nourishing oils. These ingredients help to deliver the great results.
Overall, this is a really effective daily hair conditioner from Aussie. It smells great and conditions hair thoroughly. Leaves the hair looking and smelling great, and I recommend this 100%. For somebody that is quite particular with conditioner, I have been converted. Five stars from me, great product Aussie. Thanks for reading and hope this helps.
I bought this conditioner with the Miracle Moist Shampoo (which I've also written a review about if anyone would like to check it out). This was the first time I'd ever used any Aussie products as I don't like spending a fortune on Shampoos or Conditioners, normally I'm of the belief that the cheaper products work just as well but on the recommendation of a friend I decided to give it a try. At the time of purchase it was 3 for £10 on most Aussie products in Boots which is quite a good deal considering that the conditioner alone costs £4.69 and the shampoo is the same.
At first I thought £4.69 was quite expensive but on looking at the shelves in boots I discovered that this seems to be the norm for big brand shampoos and conditioners.
I really don't like the design of the bottles on Aussie products. I feel there is far too much text on the bottle and it isn't the most eye catching design with it's white bottle in comparison with other products on the shelves which tend to be brightly coloured. However I'm sure Aussie relies on it's reputation for quality rather than catching people's eye in a shop.
There is a large range of different shampoos and conditioners in the Aussie range for different uses including volumising, adding shine and for coloured hair. I chose the miracle moist as I have dry hair due to excessive straightening and blow drying. However I was torn between this and miracle shine so after choosing this I was secretly hoping it might add a bit of shininess at the same time.
The bottle states that it contains Macedemia nut oil and has a clever antidote on the back which informs us that it originates in Australia and is used for infusing moisture. After some internet research I discovered that this type of oil is regularly used to moisturise both the skin and the hair. It is especially popular as a hot oil treatment.
The product itself is white and like the shampoo it has a bubblegum like scent to it, although in the conditioner I don't feel it is too overpowering. The consistency is more runny than I was hoping for which could lead to some wastage.
Another reviewer pointed out that the directions for use don't state that you should try to leave the conditioner in for a minute or so which I wouldn't have noticed but was surprised by as I would normally leave conditioner in for as long as I could which tends to be advised on the bottle but I followed the instructions as advised by Aussie and applied conditioner and rinsed immediately.
It applied easily and rinsed easily. I only applied a small amount and felt it was adequate for my whole hair.
After coming out the shower I dried my hair however I was disappointed by the results. My hair still felt dry and after a few hours any shine faded. The next morning my hair felt more unmanageable than it usually would so to say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
I am extremely fortunate to have long, thick and curly hair although it is vital that I invest both time and money to keep it in a healthy condition. Whilst I would previously subject my tresses to home colorants, which resulted in the tips becoming a little dry, at the age of 45 and after almost 30 years of continuous colouring, I have decided to return to my natural colour. When I was young I would use the cheapest hair products available, but I am far more selective these days and choose quality over price whilst opting for a mid range brand.
I have previously tended to purchase from both the Dove and L'Oreal ranges, but after reading so many favourable reviews on the Aussie brand, a few months ago I decided to give them a try for the first time. I felt rather overwhelmed by the huge range of products and finally decided upon Miracle Moist with this review discussing my experience with using the conditioner.
Whilst I am no longer using home colorants I am continuing to use heated appliances, which take their toll on my hair, which can be described as dry, particularly on the ends. As a consequence I always purchase hair care products that are suited for my hair type and apply deep conditioning masks once or twice a week. I like the marketing used by Aussie who claim that Miracle Moist is marketed towards those people whose hair is dry, damaged and a bit unhappy.
I cannot describe the appearance of my 400 ml sturdy plastic bottle as eye-catching, but it is certainly distinctive with the familiar logo of a jumping kangaroo and a fair amount of text advising us of the ingredients. The conditioner is depicted as a moisture infuser due to its Australian macadamia nut oil, which is known for its highly beneficial moisturising properties for the hair and scalp.
To obtain maximum results from my hair care products I always ensure that I use the matching shampoo and conditioner, so I initially cleansed my hair with the Miracle Moisture Shampoo. I am easily able to hold the bottle with a wet hand whilst in the shower and press down on the one side of the lid to enable the other side to pop up and reveal the small dispensing aperture, which releases a sufficient amount.
The quality of the cream coloured conditioner is apparent the moment it becomes visible, as it offers a good consistency, which is considerably thicker than the products offered by both Dove and L'Oreal. In fact, its appearance reminded me of one of the intensive conditioning treatment products that I use a couple of times a week. The aroma is simply stunning and very luxurious, which I would describe as very similar to that of incense, which is combined with delicate floral and nutty undertones.
The conditioner is easily applied with its quality immediately becoming evident due to the fact that I can effortlessly spread it by combing my fingers through my hair as opposed to needing a wide tooth comb. As my hair is long, thick and curly it can often become very tangled and knotted especially when washing with inferior hair care products often worsening the tangles. I found it a little strange that the few lines contained on the reverse of the bottle advising us on how to use, do not state to leave the conditioner for a few minutes before rinsing. As a consequence, I decided to leave the product on my hair whilst I cleansed my body and then rinsed it away with warm water.
All traces of the conditioner were easily rinsed away without leaving any residue or stickiness remaining. The results are apparent even with my hair being wet with its surface feeling silky smooth to the touch. After leaving my hair to dry naturally for ten minutes or so and then blow drying, I am highly impressed with the results, as in addition to it being lightweight, my hair is left with a healthy shine as well as feeling soft and smooth.
In terms of the moisturising infusing abilities, as far as I am concerned the conditioner live up to its claims and far exceeded my expectations, as the macadamia nut oil content provides nourishment to the tips of my hair without leaving any oiliness. The results are very similar to those offered by an intensive conditioner at a far more affordable price and I have to say that I am now hooked on Aussie.
Aussie Miracle Moist can be purchased at most supermarkets and stores such as Boots and is available in two sizes namely 250 ml for £4.49 and 400 ml for £5.99. However, at the time of writing, Boots are running a promotion on selected hair care products where you can purchase one and receive another at half price.
Due to the reasons discussed above I can award nothing less than five stars together with a high recommendation.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
When I bought a travel size bottle of the matching shampoo, I also bought a bottle of the Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner. I bought my bottles from Boots and a full 250ml size bottle of the conditioner will set you back roughly £4.49. Boots do often have offers on hair care though so be sure to look out for that if you like this brand.
I am terrible for washing my hair every day, blow drying and usually straightening it as well. Due to all of this, my hair gets in terrible condition and the ends look split and broken quite often. Not having my hair cut enough adds to this as well though. However, I do like my hair to look as nice as possible even without having it cut and I've found that a good shampoo and conditioner can really help how it looks. This particular conditioner states that it is for dry and damaged hair and also hair that is a bit unhappy - which my hair definitely is at the minute.
The bottle is white with a dark purple lid - colours which are on all Aussie products that I have seen. The bottle has on it a mix of light blue and purple text as well as the Aussie logo which is in a large block of purple. There is a quite large paragraph underneath the product name which explains what the conditioner does and why it is good for hair. In this case, the Australian Macadamia Nut Oil is what helps to put moisture back into dry hair.
As I had already used the shampoo by the time I used the conditioner, I was already expecting the light orange coloured liquid. The conditioner is quite thick in consistency which is something I like in a conditioner. I don't feel as though runnier liquids work as well on hair and they definitely don't absorb into damaged hair as well. Matching the colour of the conditioner is a really sweet scent which comes from the macadamia nut oil - a scent that I now really like. When on my hair and wet, the scent smells even better. The liquid was also really silky and smooth which gave me confidence that it would leave my hair in a better condition.
As a conditioner, this product does not lather up like a shampoo would. Instead, I smoothed it on my hair and left it for a couple of minutes before rinsing off. After rinsing, I could feel that my hair was softer and smoother than it was before using this product. Of course, I did use the matching shampoo as well so that had something to do with the condition of my hair too. Never at any point before getting out of the shower was I worried about my hair being unmanageable and knotty like it has been before with other products.
Out of the shower and after using the conditioner, I could easily brush through my hair. This is such an important thing for me as sometimes I can end up pulling large clumps of knots out and I didn't have this at all with Aussie products. After blow drying, my hair felt (and looked) incredibly soft and it looked a lot smoother than normal. Because of this, I definitely recommend Aussie as it works so well for damaged hair like my own.
I go swimming every Sunday morning with my husband and my kids. It's a really nice family thing to do but my hair definitely needs a wash when I get out of the pool. Inevitably I end up getting very splashed from my very excited kids so my hair is always wet and full of chlorine. I find if I don't wash it it gets very dry and unmanageable so I have a bottle of Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo and a bottle of Aussie Miracle Moist conditioner in my swimming bag for use in the showers after the pool.
This conditioner is said to help dry and damaged hair and as it says on the bottle, hair that is a bit unhappy. In fact the packaging of this shampoo is quite funny and will make you laugh if nothing else. The oils in this conditioner are said to infuse moisture into dry, damaged hair, leaving it soft, smooth and conditioned.
If you have used Aussie hair products in the past you will know that they have a really amazing unique smell and that's party why I like using it too. I always feel like the good quality, natural ingredients in this conditioner and really working well for my hair. This conditioner contains Australian macadamia nut oil and whilst it doesn't really smell overly nutty it just has a beautiful, fragrant smell that lasts well on my hair and always takes away that horrible chlorine smell.
This is not a shampoo I use daily as I find it a bit heavy for that and don't like to use that much oil on my hair all the time but every couple of weeks I like to give my hair a burst of this shampoo for a week or so. I find its particularly effective at this time of year too when my hair really gets blown around and really dried out in the cold weather. The shampoo comes in a big bottle, you can buy it in either 300ml or 500ml sizes. I like to buy the 300ml as I find this is big enough for me and I like it to be fresh when I use it. It has a little flip cap lid on it so its easy to open and close and pour some out onto your hands. The shampoo is white and very creamy looking and you can see that it is quite oil based as it has that consistency and look to it.
The conditioner is a white colour and is really nice and thick. It's a bit thicker than normal conditioners I use and so I only really like to sue it once a week at swimming, I think if I used it every day my hair would feel a bit weighed down but to give it a nice boost once a week is perfect. The conditioner really clings onto my hair and works its way through it nicely and I can really feel it coating my hair. I think the inclusion of nut oil also helps it to look really shiny without being greasy in any way.
Afterwards I find my hair is a lot nicer looking and has quite a bit of shine and is protected and is no longer dry after swimming so for an intensive moisture boost I definitely recommend this conditioner.
When it comes to hair care products like shampoo and conditioner I really don't like spending a lot of money on them. As long as my hair feels clean and in reasonably good condition after using them, I'm happy! Aussie is not a brand that I ever buy because I find it too expensive, however my Mum does buy their products all the time and she has being stocking up ever since Tesco started their 3 bottles for £10 promotion. She gave me a bottle of this conditioner last weekend because she'd ended up with about 5 bottles of it and I was happy to take it off her hands and give it a try.
I believe that it retails at around £5 to £6 for quite a small bottle (250ml) so had I not been given it, I would not have ever used it as I refuse to pay that much for a conditioner. The conditioner is for dry and damaged hair, so I knew it was perfect for me because my hair is really, really dry at the minute and nothing I do seems to fix it, I think it's because I've been straightening it a lot more often since I got it cut. Anyway, the conditioner has a unique formula with aloe Vera & macadamia nut oil which apparently smooth and moisturise dry hair. I think that by mentioning this the company want you to think that the conditioner is full of nourishing goodness, but have a quick glance at the ingredients list and you'll see it's actually full of chemicals. The conditioner comes in a pretty small, quite slender bottle which is slightly rounded. The amount you get for your money is rather ridiculous.
The bottle has a lot of information on it such as the ingredients etc, and information about how amazing it is, and the colour scheme is white and purple, so it will appeal to guys too and they won't feel silly buying it because it is not bright pink or anything like some conditioner nd shampoo bottles are. The bottle has a flip lid which I like, flip lids are always easier than an open necked bottle. The conditioner itself has a very strong, sweet fruity smell which in my opinion smells quite like bubblegum. It's not the nicest smell because it is very chemical smelling and artificial, and it does smell quite girly, despite the packaging being unisex. The smell was overpowering at first but I'm quite used to it now after using the conditioner a few times. The smell doesn't actually linger in my hair for very long which I found surprising as it is so strong, but this isn't a bad thing in my opinion as I don't really want my hair smelling overpoweringly sweet and artificial.
The texture is really odd, and not what I was expecting. It is thinner than even my cheap conditioners and does not have a rich or creamy texture like I had expected it to. Nevertheless though it isn't too runny and it spreads over my hair easily as it has a smooth texture. One thing that I have noticed is that when I put it on my hair I really struggle to get good coverage unless I use a lot of it, and one large blob just tends to coat the top part of my hair and I have to really spend time making sure all of it is covered which means that I have already used half of the bottle in under a week! Washing the conditioner out of my hair isn't as much of an effort, though rather than my hair feeling instantly clean and soft after washing it it feels full of product still unless I spend a while rinsing it out. Once I have rinsed my hair thoroughly it does feel soft and silky but no more than my other conditioner which is £4 cheaper. Once my hair is dry it is soft, smooth, shiny and silky, but again, no more so than my other conditioner!
The conditioner is nothing special and I am glad I didn't pay for it. After using it I don't really get the hype about Aussie products and I can't believe that people are willing to pay so much for a cheap looking, artificial smelling bottle of conditioner which doesn't have that much of an impressive effect on my hair and I can get the same results from a much cheaper conditioner. I am going to give this conditioner 3 out of 5 stars. I have knocked the 2 stars off because of the price, cheap looking packaging and because I need to use a lot of it to get good coverage.
After being advised to change my shampoo and conditioner by my hairdresser due to stress related hair loss and damage from a hairspray, I decided to give the Aussie products a try after her recommendation. As I had previously been purchasing a John Freida product, which is a similar price, I personally didn't find it too overpriced but at over £4.00 a bottle I know many would. I do, however, mostly buy the Aussie range when they are on offer in my local Boots for three for £10.00. I'm also told by my hairdresser that you only need a small amount and to resist using too much!
My hairdresser advised I try the Aussie Moist first before going over to a heat protecting producting. My hair deperately needed moisture and this product did just the trick. After the first condition there was a clear improvement in my hair and after a couple of weeks it was even better. As I was already using a good quality shampoo and conditioner I didn't expect a massive change in my hair but I did get one! My hair improved massively and smelt amazing too! It smelt delicious with all the different fruit ingredients!
I would recommend giving this product a try but for the best results use it with the other Aussie products. Also consider combing through your hair for good deep condition.
I love Aussie hair care products and have been using them for many years now. I have naturally curly hair, and it can often feel dry and frizzy, so one of the reasons I love this range is that they moisturise my hair so well.
This range of hair care products is in the mid-price category I would say, and a 250ml bottle of this conditioner will set you back £4.49 in Superdrug at the money. However the range always seems to be on offer, meaning you can probably pick it up for around £3.50.
Moisture fast track
As with the rest of the Aussie range, this comes in a white bottle with simple writing - it has quite a serious and professional look to it! The conditioner contains Australian Queensland Macadamia Nut which, according to the company, "is bursting with rich nourishing oils". The conditioner promises to "fast track moisture into dry, damaged hair".
This is a lovely rich conditioner, as you may expect from one that promises a hit of moisture. It is a creamy colour and has a lovely fragrance. I can never quite put my finger on what exactly this smells of, but it is a rich and slightly sweet smell.
As this is so rich I find I don't need too much of it, and it coats the hair very nicely. I leave it on my hair for as long as possible - usually five minutes or so - to ensure the maximum moisture boost possible!
Due to the thick consistency of this conditioner, I do find it needs a little extra effort to wash this out of my hair completely - a quick rinse won't do! But once it is washed out my hair feels really silky and well conditioned, and completely tangle-free.
Soft and smooth
After drying my hair, it feels lovely and soft, and smoother than after using some other cheaper conditioners. The lovely fragrance lingers as well.
Overall I love this conditioner and it is one I will continue to purchase. It really does soften and smooth my hair. And although it is pricier than others, I think it is worth it for the great results - and also I use less of this than I might do with other thinner conditioners. Recommended for dry hair!
After having a good number of inches cut off of my hair to get rid of all the dry, dead and split ends I vowed to take better care of my hair from now on. A friend of mine suggested Aussie products and I decided to give them a go. These days I swear by this brand I will very rarely use shampoo or conditioner if it's not made by Aussie.
I decided to purchase the 'miracle moist' conditioner to take the to the gym with me. After a long work out, including swimming, I tend to find my hair feels a bit dry and so I thought this one would be ideal for me after workouts. The bottle states this conditioner is 'for hair that's dry/damaged/a bit unhappy' which sums up my post-workout hair pretty well.
This conditioner is available in three sizes. The smallest 75ml bottle costs £1.12 from Asda and £1.20 from Tesco. A larger 250ml bottle can be bought from Tesco for £4.48, Boots for £4.49 and Asda for £3.98. I've only ever seen the biggest 400ml bottle in Tesco costing £5.99. I'm sure this conditioner is available in other shops besides the three I've mentioned, these are just the places I've personally seen it. I also find that Aussie products are regularly on offer in various stores as well. Asda and Boots currently have them on offer for three for £10 and Tesco are selling them for 2 for £7 at the minute. I tend to wait for such offers before purchasing these products as they do offer a decent saving!
As with all Aussie haircare products this conditioner comes in a white bottle with purple lid. It has the purple 'Aussie' logo on it which contains the outline of a kangaroo. 'Mircacle Moist Conditioner' is written in blue font on the front. The bottle of this conditioner tells us that this product is made with Australia macadamia nut oil and promises to 'infuse moisture into dry damaged hair, leaving it soft, smooth and conditioned'. Sounds like the perfect conditioner to me!
The scent of this conditioner is absolutely beautiful as well. I'm not sure what the scent is, I can't say it remind me anything inparticular or smells like anything I've ever smelt before but it's very sweet and is quite a summery scent. It's definitely something I'm happy for my hair to smell of.
The conditioner itself is quite thick and a cream colour. I take a walnut sized blob which is enough to cover my shoulder length, quite thin hair, and let it rest their for two or three minutes in which time I am free to soak up that scent! As with most conditioners this doesn't really lather up, but a little does go a relatively long way which is good. This may not be the most expensive conditioner but I don't consider it to be very cheap either so I want it to last a long time! I find I get about two - three months out a bottle of this so it does last reasonably well. The conditioner rinses off really easily and doesn't leave any residue behind nor does it leave my hair feeling heavy and clogged up with product.
The results of using this conditioner are everything I had hoped for and much more! Firstly, that beautiful scent really does linger on your hair. I once had a woman in the gym changing rooms walk past me just as I'd gotten out of the shower who told me I smelt 'lovely', I can only assume it was this conditioner she could smell. My hair is left looking and feeling hydrated with lots of moisture and that dry brittle feeling it usually has once I've come out of the gym swimming pool is non-existent. Thankfully, I stuck to my word and have been taking very good care of my hair since having most of it cut off so it isn't particularly damaged thus I can't really comment on how well this does for damaged hair. I can't imagine it doing anything by good things though!
What do you do when your plane is delayed by three hours and you are stuck in the departure lounge? Go shopping of course! Luton airport does not have many shops to offer but it does have a "Boots" that sells a selection of dinky "travel" sized products amongst which was the 75ml bottle of "Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner" which caught my eye. This is the first "Aussie" product that I have tried and I have read and heard good things about them. I plumped for the "Miracle Moist Conditioner" because I thought that it would suit my rough, tough and thick hair. My hair does not swish, it just is. I am blessed with a lovely Golden Retriever dog which has softer hair than I do and to have hair envy of your dog is a sad state of affairs indeed.
Off to Ozz!
The packaging is similar to the full sized 250ml bottle, a white plastic container with highlights of dark purple. Look for the bottle with the kangaroo and "Aussie" on it and you won´t go far wrong. My tube is designed to stand on it´s head (well it is Australian) So starting from the top is written "Aussie" then in blue "Miracle Moist Conditioner". Next in purple "for hair that´s dry/ damaged / a bit unhappy" which,after a 3hour delay summed up all of me really. It also states that it contains Australian Queensland Macadamia Nut extract which really appealed to me as all summer I have been using a sun tan lotion with Macadamia nut oil in it and found that it suited my dry skin very well so it should be good for my dry hair too. It claims to leave your hair, soft, smooth and conditioned and provide a moisture infusion for dry hair, On the back it says that" For best results, use with Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo before moving on to this fabulous conditioner. Rinse out well." The list of ingredients also appears on the back which I shall not bore you with but there did appear to be a good few natural ingredients as well as the Macademia seed (to be exact) extract.
A nice nut for my nut.
After washing my hair with my normal shampoo, I flip up the centre of the top and pour a good big blob of the fairly runny white liquid into the palm of my hand. It comes out quite quickly so watch out! It has a lovely fruity and soapy scent which I find very pleasant and then I massage it all through my stubborn locks. I always leave conditioner on my hair for at least three minutes to give it a fighting chance. I find that it washes out quite easily and I then leave my hair to dry naturally as this minimises the frizz factor. The nice scent stays on my hair but is not overpowering and would not clash with any perfume you wanted to wear.
Hurrah! it really seems to work for my hair, it is definitely softer and feels much more touchable. I found that these happy results lasted even through two days of working hard outside in sunny and salty conditions and I am now going to try the shampoo as well.
I would recommend it for anyone, male or female who has rather trying, dry hair to give "Aussie" a go.
The 250ml bottle retails at 3.67pounds for 250ml which is, in my view a bit expensive but for a happy head of hair, its worth it for me. Move over dog ,I´ve got soft hair now too!
5 stars from me.
Widely available in supermarkets and chemists and Luton Airport.
Thanks for reading my review which may also appear on Ciao under splishsplash.
My hair is dry from colouring and styling and had got worse after ill health. Usually I use salon branded products but decided that this time I would look for a high street budget brand that would restore my hair to a better condition. The value of the Aussie range is reasonable especially when they are on special offer. The product range always smells great and delights the senses. This conditioner did a good job, my hair felt soft and the product rinsed out easily but have had better results from other brands. The negative for me was I had an allergic reaction after one wash. My scalp and skin flared up. Now I know this might be a personal experience but unfortunately Aussie Miracle Moist went straight in the bin. Its not the first Aussie product that has done this, I had a similar experience after using the Colour Mate range.
I have been using this product since I first tried it over it a year ago, and honestly do not want to try any other conditioner!
I use this alongside aussie shampoo and do think it makes a real difference. I have naturally curly hair and use a lot of heat and straighten my style daily my hair can end up really dry and damaged particularly on the ends. When using this conditioner I apply to just the roots and leave for about 3-4 minutes (it is more of a cream than liquid so doesnt run out of your hands and down the drain!) and rinse. The result is just beautiful. I found styling easier, my hair looks really glossy and shiny and even slightly more manageable. The smell is abslutely divine and can be smelt throughout the day. The conditioner does the job so be sure not to apply directly to your roots as you really do not need the extra mositure there that this gives.
At over £3 and not the biggest bottle this is considered pricey in comparison to other brands but for the simple gorgeousness of your hair after this is something all girls really treat themselves to.
