I was pleasantly surprised by this, beloved readers! My first try of the Aussie line left a sour taste in my mouth. This has given Aussie a fair shot in this little, golden lamb’s world.

I’m must say, I’m not enjoying the Barney-purple bottle.

I know it’s their signature…but I feel like belting out: “I LOVE YOU! YOU LOVE ME!” when I see it and that startles people who happen to be nearby. Or they begin to stand a bit too close me and give me “the eye”.

Awkward.

Back to topic: THIS IS AN AMAZING co-wash! In fact, it is so thick and creamy I feel like I’m WASTING it as a co-wash. Though…it makes for a luxurious co-wash for the exact same reasons.

The product itself is opaque white. A little boring, I know. It’s so creamy it’ll hang onto your palm for several seconds when turned over (it did for me). Rich, thick ‑amazing. It spreads easily, which is another plus. Beware of build up with this and shampoo/clarify/AVC rinse/what-have-you weekly if you co-wash with this daily or mulitple times a week.

Don’t expect much slip from this my dears (particularly coarser haired ladies, I know I prefer more slip than this gives)…but it WILL soften your hair and soothe your scalp. That said, beware of scalp build up…don’t massage it (or really any conventional conditioner) INTO your hair follicles. Fine haired ladies may find this a tad heavy.

I bought it on sale, for $3.00. It’s usual $4–6 price is a dollar over priced if you ask me, for using it as a co-wash.

I am all around impressed by this. I think it’s on level with Dove. Well…THIS one product is on the same level as SOME of Dove products. I have FAR more success with the various lines Dove makes.
All in all…a good conditioner for all textures.

My one caveat: It smells fruity. Thankfully, for me, it doesn’t survive the final rinse, so it’s not a big issue. I’m not a fan of fruit smells. However, if you like them (or don’t care ^_~), you’ll enjoy a creamy, light, mixed-fruit scent during your shower.

this is the best co wash conditioner i’ve ever used..after trying so many. i dont think i’ll ever leave it..it brings out my curls cuz it moisturizes my hair..i love that it leaves my hair scented..
i must slightly disagree because this conditioner is well known for its excellent slip..my sister has coarse4c hair, it does wonders for her.
yeah, i agree that it does cause a little buildup..
but i guess every1’s hair reacts differently to product

I gave this one a try b/c Ive seen so many recommendations on it. unfortunately it didnt play nicely with my hair. it didnt dry it out or anything, but it didnt add extra moisture or have extra slip. My new ” boyfriend” is Elucence Moisture balancing conditioner. i love this stuff with all of my heart. I also use it as a leave it

I do love this conditioner BUT I found that Sydney Smooth does a better job for me. It’s just as moisturizing, helps with defrizzing, detangling, and it also has silk extract which I highly adore.

That interesting. How would you describe your hair Richelle? Fine/coarse? Thick/thin? 3/4. I haven’t heard of anyone preferring the Sydney Smooth

Yes! The three minute conditioner is great! I use it as a leave in!

Erica, can I give you some advice that helped me? Do NOT use it a leave in! It LOOKS healthy and shiny, I know, but it ultimately dried and thinned out the ends of my hair when I used it as a leave in. I noticed it when I straightened my hair and saw how the ends looked without the leave in. I was horrified. For me, as a cowash, it is excellent, but I have to wash it out. My hair can’t take it. Of course our hair is different, but I would feel bad if I didn’t let… Read more »

@chrissytina Thanks for the heads up, I haven’t straightened my hair in months, but the next time, I will pay close attention to my ends.

No prob! I had to trim off more than I had to, so if you can avoid any split or dried out ends, it’s best to know to look out for it.

Take care, sista
