I’d heard some good things about this product, even though Aussie regular conditioners had never really worked well for my hair. I was at Target the other day and noticed that it’s less than $4, so I figured I might as well try it. It’s supposed to help your dry damaged hair and ends. Now, I’m used to more expensive deep treatments, but I’ve also been disappointed¬† in some of them as well.

Anyway, I knew this Aussie product would smell wonderful, and I was right. I followed the directions of the bottle, and put the product onto my damp hair. At first, in the shower the product felt like it was working great! I was so happy it was living up to its hype. I waited the three minutes, rinsed it, and noticed that the moment it rinsed out of my hair it stopped feeling so nice. My hair felt like I had just used a regular, not “deeeeep” conditioner on my hair, and it didn’t even feel like a good regular conditioner.

I towel dried my hair, and it was dry. I had to add my Moroccanoil to save it, but it still feels more dry today than it did yesterday when I’d used Joico KPak as my conditioner (and I don’t even like that stuff, just trying to finish the bottle!) I was disappointed to say the least. It did not work for me. It added no extra moisture, did not even detangle my hair, and only felt soft when I applied it in the shower. This is more of a regular daily conditioner than a repair conditioner, and will most likely work wonders on people who already have healthier hair than mine.

Once again I’m disappointed with a product surrounded with tons of hype.
