Product Review : Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner
CVS had a great deal on Aussie/Herbal Essence shampoo, conditioners, and stylers (they were 2/5.97) plus some high value 3.00/2 coupons stacked with some CVS 1.00/2 coupons making them 1.97 for two! Unfortunately this deal is no longer available. However, you can find the 3.00/2 coupons in the 8-5-12 Sunday paper inside the Red Plum coupon insert and save them for another sale from a local store in your area.

I know, I know....why didnt I share this shopping trip deal? Well, I only share the shopping trips that I know you can still take advantage of. I kind of took advantage of this deal last minute (8-11-12 to be exact which was the last day of the sale). Therefore, I don't post my last minute shopping trips that makes it nearly impossible for my viewers to participate in. That would be just cruel, wouldn't it? Why brag with nitty gritty details of what I got if you cant get it too? I stocked up. I wanted to get a stock of the Aussie Moist conditioner, but they didn't have any. However, they had the Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner. So I stocked on that instead. I ended up washing my hair that night and decided to try it out.

After washing my hair with a moisturizing shampoo, I applied the Aussie to my hair. Coming out of the container it looks just like regular Aussie Moist conditioner and smells just like it. I left it in for 3 minutes, rinsed with warm water, then cold water, per instructions.

 So in a nut shell? Its no different than regular Aussie Moist conditioner to me. Looks, smells, and feels like it. The same thing I did with the deep conditioner is the same thing I always do with the regular Aussie Moist conditioner. Which isn't a bad thing for me actually, because I like Aussie moist conditioner. However, its just another quick rinse out moisturizing conditioner. I don't think of this product as a deep least not the deep conditioners I use for my naturally kinky curly hair. For one I usually buy intense deep conditioners that say on the label to leave in for 5 minutes or more and leave them in my hair for at least an hour to overnight. I already deep conditioned on dry hair before washing, so I wasn't going to do that with the Aussie. My hair felt soft afterwards, but my hair usually feels that way when I deep condition on dry hair, wash, and then use a quick rinse out conditioner. So if given the chance of this being on sale and the Aussie Moist regular conditioner was not on sale or they were out of stock then I would buy this again and use it as a rinse out conditioner. However, if I was looking for a deep conditioner then I wouldn't go for this product, personally.
