Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

abc

I’ve tried countless different conditioners while on the quest for silky, smooth and healthy hair.  Most of those conditioners that I have tried are higher end and more expensive because normally I feel like you get what you pay for.  I can honestly say that this is probably the cheapest conditioner I have ever bought yet it is by far one of my absolute favorites (if not my absolute favorite)!

This is a conditioning miracle for my hair at an extremely affordable price.  On average, an 8 oz. bottle of this is about $3.00 and a lot of times the grocery store will have 2 for $5.00 specials.  (You can’t beat those prices!)  It’s a nice creamy consistency with a pleasant and fresh scent.  You only need to leave the conditioner on your hair for 3 minutes (I usually leave it on longer though).

If you read any of my previous posts on conditioners that I’ve tried you know that I love a conditioner that actually detangles my hair in the shower, which this one does an amazing job of doing!  When I rinse this out, my hair is instantly left feeling super soft and silky and completely tangle free!  When I get out of the shower I don’t even have to spray in a detangling spray because I can brush through my hair effortlessly.  I notice after using this that my hair looks healthy, soft and shiny when it dries too.

I suggest this to anyone who needs a good moisturizing conditioner and to anyone who doesn’t want to shell out big bucks for a conditioner.  It is sold in most grocery stores, drug stores, Wal-Mart’s, etc.  (I love this too because when I travel rather than lugging a bunch of conditioner with I can just go pick up a bottle when I reach my destination since it is so affordable.)

 

Pros:

  • Affordable (REALLY affordable!)
  • Fresh scent
  • Moisturizes and deep conditions
  • Detangles
  • Leaves hair looking/feeling silky, shiny and healthy
