What on earth is this post about? All explained here.

Name: Aussie Miracle Moist for dry hair

Price: £1.69 for 75ml = £2.25 for 100ml

No. of applications: 4 from a 75ml bottle = c. 5.5 per 100ml = c. 42p each

Smell: Nice - sweet and nutty. (Unsurprising, given that it proclaims itself to contain macadamia nut oil.)

Appearance in hand: Texture - a bit like slightly more liquid vaseline. Colour - beige-ish.

Feeling when applied: Oily (in a good, nourishing sort of way), well absorbed into hair.

First brush while still wet: Very good. Some knots, but they melt away quickly under my brush.

Hair once dry: Basically good. Nice sheen and lies well, but there are a few stragglers.

Later brush: Hair hangs nicely and looks smooth, but is a bit static-y, and has a slightly 'rough' feeling - more like cotton than silk.

Overall: Felt nourishing and good for my hair while wet, but became a bit more disappointing as it dried - stragglers on initial drying and then a static-y rough feeling when brushed through once dry. Could do better, but certainly not a disaster. 7/10.

Thanks for these! Rookie question: Do you rinse off the conditioner or leave it in? I never had to use conditioner before moving to Suffolk. I have no idea if I'm doing it wrong (I rinse it out) and that's the problem.

Standard practice is definitely to rinse it out, so you're doing it right there - don't worry! I have heard some people with incredibly curly / frizzy hair say that they deliberately leave it in to get large distinct curls rather than a big mass of random frizz, but I think that's only for extreme cases really.
