Product Review: Aussie Take The Heat 3 Minute Miracle Deep TreatmentConditioner

Price & Location: 3 Aussie products for £10 (Boots) 2 Aussie products for £7 (Superdrug) – Individually £4.99 (Also found at Tesco, Asda, Waitrose)

Helps protect against heat damage. For heat damaged hair with Australian Jojoba Seed Oil.

All hail the one that cares and helps protect against heat. Long ago, Australian natives used jojoba seed oil to heal skin (they had gorgeous hair too). Its oil can be found in this blessed bottle. Use together with Take The Heat Shampoo & 3 Minute Miracle. Heat shall not wither your beauty. (You’ll look well hot, too)

Ingredients: Aqua, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Parfum, Isopropyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol ,Disodium EDTA, Limonene, Linalool ,Sodium Hydroxide, Citronellol, Magnesium Nitrate ,Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone



Verdict: From my knowledge as far as ingredients go I would not fault it, though I know most people don’t like dimethicone (am guessing this is the cone that gives it the heat protection properties). I have also noticed it has sodium hydroxide, which is found in lye relaxer, not sure what this is doing in my conditioner.....Also jojoba is the strong selling point for the product but it’s the 13th ingredient!!! The string of ingredients confused me slightly (am still confused) I cannot comment on the other ingredients as I am no expert!

If bought as a deal the price is not bad, it works out at about £3.50 to £3.33 per bottle as opposed to £4.99.

The amount per bottle is 250ml, I find that really little, and especially as my hair grows I will need more of it!

The first time I used this product I used it as a deep conditioner (added oils and sat with it for 30 mins – I know it says 3 minutes!!), and OMG I had never felt my hair sooooooo soft, fluffy and manageable! I was like where have you been all my life!!! Nowadays I just use it as an instant conditioner, and the results are still as amazing.

I have since repurchased this product again, (on the deal!) it has slip, make hair easy to detangle and let’s just say I am in love with Aussie products. The smell is great, and the overall finished feel is also great!

Apart from being an instant conditioner, this product can be used as a co-wash, smoothing treatment (a sub for my Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment maybe.....)

I have not used it with any heating products yet, I will incorporate it on my relaxer day!

As far as conditioners go, I find it gives better results than the conditioner I use Tresemme Naturals Rich Moisturising Conditioner, but am a bit unsure about its ingredients..... 4/5, only because of the ingredients, but my hair feels great when using it :-)

Have you guys ever tried Aussie hair products, and what are your thoughts on the ingredients?
Happy Hair Journeys Ladies :-)
