I tried using Aussie products several years ago, and my experience with the brand was less than stellar. I was very happy to let this brand fall into the background while I used other brands, both high end and low end. It wasn’t until this past summer that I was made aware of this brand again. By this time, I was happily using SunSilk Waves of Envy Shampoo and Conditioner, and honestly, the only reason why I tried this combo was because I was able to get both bottles for about $1.50. I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a try.
I fell in love this combo after the first time I used it. My hair was super soft and extremely shiny afterwards. I honestly don’t think my hair had ever felt that soft before, just with shampoo and conditioner. I normally have to use a deep treatment to get my hair that soft. I was extremely surprised at how well my hair repsonded to this product. My hair is normally extremely fussy when it comes to products. Some products will make my hair feel like an oil slick (Ion) or will actually make my hair fall out (Pantene Pro V). Aussie Opposites Attract did none of those things to my hair. In fact my hair behaved better with Aussie than it did even with SunSilk.
Final Thoughts: There really isn’t anything more I can say about these products, other than they worked amazingly well for my very fickle hair. Other members of my family also used these products and my aunt and cousin, who both have extremely dry hair, had a good experience with these products. So, don’t take my word for it. This brand is super cheap, and you will be able to find it on sale, to make it an even better deal. I can honestly say that I have compared this brand to another one, which is extremely high end and this one one comes out on top. I do however plan on reviewing the high end brand soon, so be on the look out for that.
