LaManda taught me. She really did. My curlfriend LaManda does not stunt on what is popular, what ingredients you should/shouldn’t use or whether products are designed for “us” or not. She is always willing to try something out and is always focused on the end result: what works. So a couple years ago when I told her that I had yet to find a good deep conditioner that isn’t riddled with protein kryptonite that actually leaves my hair feeling soft and moisturized she told me: You need to go get the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. I have been a believer ever since.
So let’s talk about the pros of this conditioner:
- Its cheap. Not only can you pick it up for around $3 you can often find it on a BOGO sale.
- Its widely available. Walmart, Target, Kroger, CVS, Meijer, wherever you shop in your town you can find this item in the beauty aisle.
- Its smells good. It has a light tropical flower scent that is not too strong.
- It detangles well. Whether you finger comb, use a wide tooth comb or denman brush this is a conditioner you can detangle with easily.
- It comes in a great bottle. This is one of the few products that is contained within a well designed bottle. It’s stored upright and squeezes from the bottom so no vigrous shaking to get the product out. There are also grooves on the side to act as grips to prevent slipping.
And now the cons. Or should I say cones? Yes this product contains silicones and they are very high on the ingredients list. I could tell they were there by the amazing slip present, silicones are great for slip. They also coat the hair which can be both good an bad. By coating the hair they help keep the moisture in. However that coating can build-up and prevent additional moisture from getting in. So if you are a cone user you want to remember to use a good sulfate shampoo to make sure you are cleansing the hair of the silicones to prevent build up. If you are not a fan of cones, well simply don’t use this product.
