As most of you know, I’m absolutely crazy for conditioner and after reading some reviews online I finally decided to check out the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner (yes, it’s actually spelled that way and I have absolutely no reason why). I got it with a few other items from Soap.com so it was pretty convenient. In honor of this review, you should attempt to read it in 3 minutes or less. The only prize = glory.
Packaging: So the packaging is pretty standard Aussie Fare: it’s purple, there’s a kangaroo…enough said. Truth is, the bottle is smaller than I imagined for some reason. It’s not packaged like a traditional conditioner though. There are ribs on the side to help with handling it in the shower (I assume) and the bottle is meant to be kept inverted as you’re meant to squeeze the product out.
Consistency: This was, by far, one of my favorite parts of using the product. It has a thick, creamy-like consistency. Apparently I was too excited to read the directions before using it so I didn’t notice the nifty little squeeze nozzle. I unscrewed the cap and used about two big glops (scientific term, of course) for my entire head. It spread pretty well and I used a little bit of water to help it along.
Smell: Maybe it’s this funky cold thing that I’ve had going on lately but I couldn’t really smell this product too well. What I was able to smell reminded me of every other Aussie product which is a bit too perfumey and artificial for me. BUT, and that’s a big but, I didn’t notice the smell lingering after I used it so it didn’t bother me too much.
Price: I got the product for $3.85 from Soap.com and I assume that most drug stores carry it over a similar price on the ground. Judging from the amount I have left after one use I definitely have at least a few more uses before it’s gone so 4 bucks for this ain’t so bad.
Overall Impression: This product is somewhat of a little miracle. I actually can’t remember the last time a product slid through my hair like this one did. I have ridiculously thick hair and after about a minute or two my hair melted like butter. After my hair dried it was moderately soft and cloudy although I wish it was a bit softer. But overall, it turned out pretty good. So if you’re looking for a quick deep conditioner then try it out. It’s worth the money and readily available at most drug stores.
