I have always liked the Aussie products, as they smell wonderful, work well, and are quite inexpensive considering the quality. The Three Minute Miracle didn't disappoint--on the contrary, it exceeded my expectations. I live in Southern Arizona, and the dry climate and high summer temperatures are a terrible combination for someone with thick hair that is also somewhat damaged due to coloring in the past. As such, I am always on the lookout for products that help me keep my hair soft, smooth, and healthy. I have found that if I wash my hair first with very warm water, apply the Three Minute Miracle, and don a shower cap, by the time I am done cleaning the rest of my body, my hair is ready for rinsing. I rinse with cool water, and the result is beautiful hair that smells and looks like I just left a beauty salon. When I want extra deep conditioning, I leave the shower cap on, finish my shower, then use my blow dryer on a "warm" setting with the shower cap on for a few minutes. This mimics the effect sitting under a hot dryer in the beauty parlor has, as it fully expands the hair shaft to maximize the moisturizing effect of the Three Minute Miracle. I then rinse the conditioner out with cool water in the sink. In the winter I can get away with using this product once every other week or so, and during the summer I use it twice weekly. I have been using the Three Minute Miracle for a year or so now, and it makes a big difference, especially in the summer. I am seeing a lot less breakage, and a lot fewer split ends. Scent The scent is comparable to many of the higher end salon products.
