Hair Repairing Miracles: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner and V05 Miracle Concentrate...

Being a 'bottle' blonde requires a lot of upkeep and sadly a lot of care as my hair gets so dry and damaged so easily. When I felt my hair last week I was shocked at just how dry it had become, so I took to the shelves of Boots to see what I could find.

Considering I was definitely in need of a miracle, these products are aptly named. Both products claim to smooth, repair split ends and add shine to dry, damaged and unmanageable hair. Perfect!

The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner is a thick conditioner which claims to be able to do all of this in a mere 3 minutes. I have been using this every time I was my hair and leave it on for the whole duration of my shower (definitely more than 3 minutes) and as soon as it hits my hair I feel a difference. It coats my hair thickly and it easy to comb through in the shower. It smells AMAZING due to the sweet scent of the Safflower Oil which is the smoothing 'elixir' ingredient in this conditioner.  
I also really love the packaging of this product too. It's really convenient and shower friendly. Just squeeze and go, no caps to fuss with and no accidentally dropping the bottle on the shower floor. My hair has never felt so good just from using a conditioner. Once dry it looks so much softer and doesn't feel anywhere near as dry. I can see why so many people swear by Aussie products. I am converted!
The VO5 Miracle Concentrate is a universal treatment which can be used in wet or dry hair. It speeds up drying time and minimises the damage caused by blow drying. The thing that drew me to this product was Argan Oil being listed amongst its' ingredients. Hearing so many great things about products such as Moroccan Oil, I thought I'd be a fool not to try it out at a fraction of the cost. 
I have been using this so much (it even made it into my Monthly Favourites) putting it through my hair before I dry it, and also using it when styling to tame any flyways and frizz. I have only been using this in the mid-lengths and end of my hair, as it is an oil based products and roots definitely do not need anymore of that! 

The product does not add any extra weight to my hair and it smells gorgeous. It's a scent that lingers in the hair so have a sniff of it first if you're thinking of purchasing. 

These two products together have definitely left my hair a lot more manageable, left it looking less dry and a lot smoother. I am one happy blonde!

What are your Miracle hair products?
