Product Review: Aussie Moist Conditioner

3:34:00 AM 6 Comments A+ a-


This week's product review is on none other than Aussie Moist Conditioner. I've seen the name around various hair blogs and everyone who has used it has raved about it. I picked up a bottle at Walmart last week to give it a try with my cowash. Whoa Nelly! This stuff is awesome!

I had to test it out twice because the first time I ended up with serious flakes in my hair, which I realized was a result of me not cleansing my hair with shampoo to remove the other products I had applied. The second time was much better and I could tell a difference with moisture.

This is day one of a braid out I did

I shampooed my hair with Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter shampoo, then deep conditioned with the Aussie Moist conditioner mixed with a little olive oil. I also detangled while I deep conditioned. Afterwards, I rinsed it all out with cold water, applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my scalp and hairline and then twisted with a little Shea Moisture Curl Milk


Likes:

  • Smell - It's not too overpowering and you catch a whiff of it each time your hair moves.
  • Hydration - this conditioner is super hydrating; right up there with Hello Hydration. 
  • Affordable - I think I paid less than $3 for this bottle but I do think if you like it as much as I do, you should invest in larger bottle.
  • Slip - This conditioner has great slip. I found it super easy to detangle.



Dislikes:

  • It does have some -cones in it so you might notice flakes if you don't deep cleanse your hair first. 
  • I have SUPER thick hair and after two uses, I'm almost out! Eeek! Invest in bigger bottle if you like. 
  • It may not mix well with other products. I noticed the flakes after using my Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie but I didn't see any after using the Curl Milk. 

I recently cut about an inch and a half off so my hair is collarbone length when stretched

I like their 3 minute conditioner. I started doing the deep conditioner/then 15 minute cool down and apply a top coat of conditioner and it works! I used Jessi Curls weekly deep conditionre, sat under the dryer for about 45 minutes, let it cool for 15, then applied to Aussie with great results:)

I've used that conditioner before, and I love it! It made my hair super soft.

I just bought this conditioner because I wanted a cheapy conditioner to detangle my hair but I am scared of cones. But I love the smell and I heard you get great slip from it! I guess it's worth a try, right?

I too don't prefer 'cones but I think occasionally using them won't harm your hair. If anything make sure you deep cleanse your hair first and then apply.
