Personally, I love hair treatments. Not only do they leave my hair feeling super soft and silky when my hair was feeling rough, but it also leaves my hair smelling incredible! However, sometimes it’s just annoying having to leave it on your hair for 20+ min, maybe because it means you have to wash your hair again or you are too busy. That’s why I love the 5 minute or less deep treatment products, because you can basically treat your hair while taking a shower! Yet, their is another struggle of finding a good deep treatment that actually leaves you hair softer and more hydrated. So, I put two products to the test, and I was pleasantly surprised! The first product is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle: Reconstructor. Which is an incredible brand with tons of 3 minute mask to choose from. Personally, I have 4 of their products, so it is definitely not a first impression product. The second product is the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle: Total Damage Care. I personally like to use damage care conditioners and treatments, just because I have really thick hair and a lot of it. Even though, I haven’t dyed it or chemically treated it, I find that damage care products give my hair the best deep treatment.
So, the first test is scent.
I love the scent of the Pantene 3 minute miracle! I don’t know how to describe it, but it is a super refreshing scent and it lingers in your hair. I have had compliments on my hair smelling good after using this product. So, it is definitley gets a 5/5. As for Aussie, I don’t mind the scent to much. However, if I had to describe it, it would be a mix of grape and plastic, but leaning towards grape. In this case. I’m glad it doesn’t linger, so that is why I gave it a 3/5.
Next is the packaging.
For Pantene, I gave 4/5 because it is a normal and convenient packaging, which is easy to squeeze out of the tube. It is also very eye grabbing in terms of the colour choices and looks quite luxuries. However, there are moments when using the product and resealing it can be frustrating (this is when the product build up tends to happen which leaves it difficult to reseal). As for Aussie, I really like the innovative packaging, as there is no lid, it super easy to use, leaving no residue behind, which makes it a 5/5.
Next is Price range.
In terms of price, I think that Pantene wins it, at around a 40 dollar price range. While, Aussie is at a 90 dollar price range in HK. So, Pantene is definitely a lot cheaper.
Honestly, I really enjoy using both products. They leave my hair super silky, as if I got a fresh hair cut from a salon. My ends don’t feel dry and my hair isn’t frizzy. So, that is a 5/5 in my book. Even though, the effect is so similar. They are super different, as the Pantene is a fairly thick and creamy product. While Aussie is more light and a water base product, but they both are incredible!
So, that is my review on these 2 products. I hope you enjoyed it and found it useful and I hope you do check them out, if you are interested.
