How I Used This Product:

::The Assessment::

I have been raving about the Aussie Moist Conditioner and decided to give this shampoo a try, due to what it claims. Even though it has in sulfates I’m still hoping its moisturizing enough. The bottle comes with a pump which makes life much easier. This has been my worst purchase to date.  The product is creamy like my Elasta QP Creme Conditioning Shampoo, but also running at the same time as seen in the pic above. It has a perfume smell which isn’t over powering *whew*

I have used this after prepooing with oil and conditioner and the results I got were the same. It lathers well which is a plus for me however while rinsing my hair feels like straw and extremely dry even though my hair is wet, if that makes sense.  I decided to dilute the shampoo with water and add a couple drops of peppermint oil in an applicator bottle, in an effort to reduce the harshness and my hair is still dry while rinsing. This shampoo strips my hair really badly. It does an ok job in getting my hair clean, but not superb.

I don’t like to waste money and sadly I have a HUGE bottle of this stuff.  I have had to follow up with my Creme of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo to add back some form of moisture back into my hair before I Deep Condition.

Overall I wouldn't repurchase and wouldn't recommend it either. This shampoo doesn't hold up to its claims of quenching dry hair or having a moisturized feel on my hair.

Have you used the Aussie Moist Shampoo & What are your thoughts on it?

  1. I've tried this too, and had the rest of the bottle left for a while. I used it to wash makeup brushes instead. I wasn't about the straw hair. But the conditioner from this line is pretty good though!

    1. We both agree on the same thing: No to shampoo and Yes to conditioner .

  2. Awww...Nothing's worse than a liter product that doesn't really work for you. Sorry Tomi.

  3. Aw this shampoo was a miss. Sometimes I wonder why companies who have great conditioners often have horrible shampoos. Aubrey Organics was the same way for home - nice conditioners, horrible shampoos :/

  4. It actually didn't leave my hair feeling like straw. I added tea tree oil and it wasn't bad. Would I buy it again? Probably not because I prefer sulfate free shampoo but it wasn't horrible to me. It was ok.

  5. Im sorry it doesnt work for you. Maybe try diluting it and adding oils to make it a little better? I hate wasting products as well.

  6. That is actually the shampoo I have. But to be honest I don't really shampoo my hair anymore since I figured out that my hair responds better with conditioning only. Never thought I would say that.

  7. I hate when that happens, I guess the only good is that it is a relatively cheap product. Either way I hate wasting my hard earned money so find some other way to use it.

  8. I wanna cry when a product doesn't do what's promised. That's my issue with the Aussie Conditioners. Yes, everybody else loves them, my hair does not. And my side of the world they are freaking expensive! Not doing it to myself again.
