As I suffer from sensitive skin all over my face and skin, I search for a shampoo that'll leave my hair feeling silky, smooth and full of fragrance without the nasty scalp irritation.
Althought I could not fault any Aussie shampoo for the wonders it does to my curly, frizzy hair, I have to condemn it for the harsh chemicals it uses which leave my scalp feeling generally irritated, itchy and sometimes scab ridden. If it wasn't for my unfortunately sensitive skin, I would have given this amazing product five stars, but for people out there with sensitive scalp it could just aggravate your conditions even more. Even though the shampoo makes my scalp itch, I always use the conditioner as that seems to hydrate my scalp rather than dehydrate it.
The smell left on your hair by Aussie shampoo ad conditioner just lingers for ages, longer than any other product I have ever used. I can't but my finger on the exact smell but it's certainly very pleasing as I recieve numerous compliments from family members and friends on the smell of my hair, no need for perfume!
As my hair is quite thin and curly, I look for a product that defines my curls a bit better - Aussie certainly does this as each time I wash my hair with it I'm just left with silk smooth and knot free hair. If it wasn't for its harshness on my scalp I'd certainly use this for the rest of my life.
Over the years I have done major damage to my hair through dyeing, bleaching, straitening, perming. I have not been kind with it. Now I'm slightly older I can't really pull off crazy hair anymore so I needed something to really sort the mess I had sitting on my head. I had seen this adverided on the tube and on tv so when a friend recommended it I thought why not what have I got to lose. My hair had been recently bleached so It was very dry and brittle. To be completely honest I didn't expect much before using it. On the first go I used about half a bottle just to be sure it would actually do something. As there was no recommended time to leave it in for on the bottle I left it in for about 10 minutes. When rinsing it out I started to notice that my hair actually felt soft! I thought I was going mad I used the condition left it in again for 10 minutes and then wrapped my hair in a towel. I left it to dry naturally and when it had I was surprised at what a difference one wash had made. My dry brittle flat hair had almost instantly turned soft and bouncy! Something I thought could only happen with very expensive trips to a hair dressers. I will not however be using it evey wash as the amount of shampo I go through it would cost me a bomb but I will be making sure I always have a bottle to use in my hair every few washes to maintain it. This is the shampoo I would recommend to anyobe with 'hair issues' as I had. 5/5
I take pride in the appearance of my hair and like it to look in the best condition possible. I have grown it quite long and so I am finding that I need to make sure I take better care of it. I do blow dry my hair most days and so I like to make sure I use a shampoo which will help keep the moisture in my hair. I decided to buy this one to see if it was suitable for my hair.
The shampoo comes inside a plastic bottle and has the name clearly on the front and so can easily be spotted on the shelf.
The shampoo is a pearly white colour and has a thick, rich consistency. It doesn't drip from the bottle while pouring it onto the hands. It has a soft, smooth texture to it and has a sweet fragrance with a strange kind of smell. Pretty hard to describe but it has a slight perfume fragrance with a twist of a sugary smell. A really nice fragrance and one I like quite a lot. Not at all a sickly smell at all but a really pleasant one.
You don't need much of the shampoo to create a good lather on the hair. I just use a small blob and this amount is enough to wash my long hair. It also creates lots of bubbles and foam on the hair and the smell lingers all the time I am washing my hair with this shampoo. A little goes a long way too.
It contains Australian Macadamia nut oil which is designed to soften and condition the hair. Also contains Aloe Vera. It claims to nourish the hair and leave it in a good condition. I have found my hair to appear in a slightly better condition but not a great deal. It is a little softer than when I have used a cheaper brand but I have found it isn't an amazing difference considering this one is priced at a lot higher than some other well known brands.
My hair doesn't feel dry and just feels soft but I find my hair feels almost the same way when I have used a cheaper shampoo. It doesn't leave my hair feeling all lanky and it doesn't weigh it down at all so that is a bonus. I have quite thick hair and it is coloured and I find it doesn't fade my colour at all and my colour looks bright and glossy looking.
This one is priced at around £4.40 for a 300ml bottle, it is also available in a larger bottle of 500ml and is priced at around £6. Also available in a travel size bottle which costs just over a £1,so worth buying a travel one if you cannot afford the larger sized bottles and just want to test it to see if it is one which is suitable for your hair and I think this price is affordable.
In my opinion I don't think it is worth these prices for the way it makes my hair feel, I have found the cheaper ones work just as well. I think maybe my hair isn't quite as dry as I maybe thought it appeared and is probably in a better condition than I first thought since using this shampoo. I think if you have very dry hair, it may be a good one to try and may be more suitable but for my hair I don't think it works that well for softening my hair but it washes really well. I think it is maybe over priced but that is just my opinion on the way it leaves my own hair.
I have washed my grandson's hair using this shampoo and it hasn't irritated his scalp or my own scalp. It has washed his hair well and has left it looking nice and glossy.
My hair is manageable after washing it with this shampoo, it is a very good quality one too.
I don't think I would buy this one again in the future because I just think it is over priced. It didn't really meet my expectations that well and I did expect my hair to feel a whole lot better since it is a higher priced shampoo.
I do recommend it if you have very dry, damaged hair and hair which may need extra attention but if your hair is in a good condition I think some other cheaper branded ones would work just as well in my opinion. I think it is a little expensive if you are on a very low budget and so I think you would be wiser buying a cheaper brand if you are struggling to save a little money.

I give this one 4 stars. Dropping a star because of the high price.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
Aussie Moist Shampoo, which has recently been rebranded Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo in line with the company's Miracle range, is aimed at those with dry or damaged hair. It's been a few years since I last used any Aussie products - the company used to be one I looked for in the high street shops, but it's now owned by the mighty Procter and Gamble, so doesn't tick the right ethical boxes for me any more. I picked up this shampoo recently when I had to choose from a limited range in a small shop, and it didn't have the worst ingredients list on the shelf.
I tend to be quite horrible to my hair when I've just done a 12-hour night shift. I give it a cursory wash through with shampoo only, for the sake of getting it dried quickly and getting to my bed. As my hair tends towards dryness and frizziness, this treatment can make for unhappy hair, which this shampoo claims to address.
Going on appearance, Miracle Moist Shampoo looks like it would do the job. The shampoo is rather thick and creamy in texture, and looks almost like it already contains some conditioner. Unlike some creamier shampoos, it lathers very well, no doubt because the second and third ingredients on the list are the foaming agents Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. These ingredients tend to have a drying effect on my skin, so I need to be careful with this shampoo and remove every trace of it from the back of my neck and ears.
The shampoo contains extract of Macadamia Nut. Despite this, it smells strongly of bubblegum to my nose. It's not the most unpleasant scent in the world, but is a slightly odd one for a shampoo. I prefer products that have a more natural smell, and would have preferred the nut extract in this case to be detectable from the scent, rather than just smelling the 'Parfum' the shampoo contains.
So, does the miracle moist effect work from using the shampoo alone? Sadly, in my case the answer is no, and this shampoo has been no more beneficial to my hair than the own-brand shampoos I would usually pick up from my local Boots or Superdrug. I did set the shampoo a bit of a challenge, using it on out-of-condition hair and without its Miracle Moist Conditioner counterpart, but I would have hoped for just a little bit less frizz and dryness given the name of this shampoo.
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo retails for around £4.50 for a 300ml bottle. There are regular promotions available, and for anyone who's tempted to get this, I'd recommend waiting for a multi-buy deal and getting some conditioner as well. The shampoo on its own gets a middle-of-the-road rating from me.
When it comes to brands of hair care, Aussie is one I have never tried before... until very recently. When my boyfriend and I stayed in Norwich for the night, I forgot to pack shampoo and conditioner so I had to head to boots to get some travel size products. The best price at that time was the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner. For a full 300ml size bottle of shampoo, it will cost roughly £4.49. Boots regularly have this in their 3 for 2 offer.
My hair is extremely dry due to using too much heat on it. The Aussie Miracle Moist bottle states that this shampoo is for dry and damaged hair and also hair that is a bit unhappy - all three things describe my hair, especially the last. Using hair products that don't agree with my hair certainly makes it very unhappy and full of knots. The bottle is white in colour with a purple lid. The front of the bottle has the Aussie name and kangaroo logo at the top in purple lettering with the name of the product underneath which is in blue lettering. There is also a small paragraph about the shampoo which explains what is in it and what it does.
As I poured the shampoo out into my hand, the light orange colour of the liquid was a nice surprise. I'm not sure what colour I was expecting but it definitely wasn't orange. To match the sweet orange colour, there is also a lovely, sweet scent. I can't really describe what it smells of specifically but sweet really does seem to be the best word to use. I really liked the scent of this shampoo even before it touched my hair. The liquid also felt extremely silky in my hand which was a good first impression.
Once in my hair, things only got better. I used a blob of shampoo about the size of a 50p piece and began to massage it into my scalp and the length of my hair. With the shampoo warmed up, and lathering up quickly, I loved how it felt in my hair. The bathroom was filled with the sweet scent of the shampoo, which I still couldn't put my finger on at this point either. At this point, I began to rinse out the shampoo and it felt incredibly smooth and soft. Sometimes, my hair can feel great when rinsing the shampoo out but not afterwards. Luckily, when I got out of the shower and began to brush through my hair, it was still as soft and smooth as I had hoped.
As well as a great smell, this shampoo worked really well for my hair type. I could get a brush through what is normally a tangled, knotty mess with complete ease. Also, after blow drying, my hair looked fantastic and felt as soft as it did when wet. As a brand I hadn't tried previously, this was a really good first impression and I was really happy with the results. Due to this, I would quite happily buy the larger sized bottles.
My hair is not one of my best features. It's rather lank and thin with dry split ends and greasy roots. I'm painting a lovely picture. Lately, I've had it lightened and this has helped a bit with the greasy roots, as my hairdresser said it might do. However, the ends are still terribly dry and look like they badly need some moisture. My friend suggested I try Aussie Moist Shampoo. I was a bit worried about using this shampoo at first as I thought that if it was going to add moisture to my hair it might also make my roots go even greasier than it was before. Actually the exact opposite is true and I'm pleased to report than this particular shampoo seems to suit my hair type perfectly. I'm really pleased I decided to splash out and buy some. It wasn't cheap at nearly £4 for the 300ml sized bottle but it lathers really well and as I only have to use a small amount, a whole bottle lasts me for ages, particularly as it's not a shampoo I use every day - I use this about three times per week.
The bottle is made of fairly heavy duty plastic but it is flexible enough for me to be able to squeeze some out while I am in the shower. I like the lid as you have to press the top slightly to make one end come up and then tip it over and the contents come out fairly fluidly. The shampoo has a great fresh clean smell and it's medium to thick in consistency and it lathers like a dream. The bottle sates to wash the hair twice with this shampoo and to also use the Aussie conditioner for best results. I actually use a different conditioner and only ever wash my hair once, yet it still gives me really great results.
It rinses out of my hair well and afterwards, when I come to dry and style my hair I can really see a huge difference in its volume and the shine it has. My hair feels and smells gorgeous for ages after I've used this shampoo and I also use it on my daughter as she tells me she loves the smell of bubblegum it has. It does add moisture to the ends of my hair and makes it look in much better condition. Surprisingly for me, I haven't noticed that my roots look any more greasy than they normally do, so in this respect I had nothing to worry about.
It's just a great shampoo, which definitely improves both the look and health of my hair and adds shine and volume and moisture without it making my hair look or feel heavy or dragged down. I certainly recommend it if you need a bit of a moisture boost.
I recently went away for a couple of nights to Edinburgh and as I wasn't going to be away for long, I wanted to take products which I could find in handy, travel sized bottles. For a while, the only brands you could get in small bottles were Head and Shoulders or a plain, boring Pantene one but now there seems to be loads of choice.
Some of the more "upmarket" brands were priced ridiculously so I opted for the Aussie Moist Shampoo and Conditioner which were on offer - 2 for £2. If you've ever used Aussie products before then you'll be familiar with the branding and the look of the bottles. The bottles are a creamy/off white colour and the logo/font is a deep purple. The Kangaroo logo is great and really makes you associate the product with the brand.
The travel bottle has a flip top and you squeeze the bottle to get the product to squirt out - I much prefer this to screw top bottles which you have to shake upside down for ages to get any shampoo out! The first thing you notice when you use this, or any other Aussie product is the smell. It's quite strong and very unique to this brand. It's hard to describe but it always reminds me of bubblegum. Personally I like it and it's a good job because I find that the scent does linger in your hair when you wash it out!
This shampoo is very thick in consistency and you really don't need to use a great deal to get your hair squeaky clean - I use a dollop about the size of a 2p piece and that does my long thick hair easily. Some people like to wash their hair with shampoo twice but I don't find that neccessary with this product, it does the job the first time with no problems. This is probably due to the fact that it lathers up really well, covering every inch of your hair.
After using this shampoo and the matching conditioner for a couple of days, I can honestly say that my hair was in the nicest condition it has been in for years. It felt soft, moisturised and healthy and had a real shine about it. I don't need to wash my hair every day with this shampoo, it stays looking clean for a couple of days minimum.
Overall I am really impressed with this product, not only because it performs and does the job so well but also because it was a bit of a bargain. I have tried many much more expensive shampoos from hair salons but this seemed to outperform them all!
After being advised to change my shampoo and conditioner by my hairdresser due to stress related hair loss and damage from a hairspray, I decided to give the Aussie products a try after her recommendation. As I had previously been purchasing a John Freida product, which is a similar price, I personally didn't find it too overpriced but at over £4.00 a bottle I know many would. I do, however, mostly buy the Aussie range when they are on offer in my local Boots for three for £10.00. I'm also told by my hairdresser that you only need a small amount and to resist using too much!
My hairdresser advised I try the Aussie Moist first before going over to a heat protecting producting. My hair deperately needed moisture and this product did just the trick. After the first wash there was a clear improvement in my hair and after a couple of weeks it was even better. As I was already using a good quality shampoo and conditioner I didn't expect a massive change in my hair but I did get one! My hair improved massively and smelt amazing too! It smelt delicious with all the different fruit ingredients!
I would recommend giving this product a try but for the best results use it with the other Aussie products.
With all the blow drying and straightening I do to my hair it does get very dry and brittle at the ends and quite damaged over time and so a friend had recommended this moist shampoo to me. I have used Aussie products before, mainly because I liked the smell of the shampoo and so I was happy to try this one and see what it did for my hair.
This shampoo is said to help dry and damaged hair and as it says on the bottle, hair that is a bit unhappy. In fact the packaging of this shampoo is quite funny and will make you laugh if nothing else. It also says that, "It's a miracle, well kind of. Not like child birth or a solar eclipse, but our formula with Australian Macadamia Nut oil infuses moisture into dry damaged hair helping to condition and smooth." The oils are said to lock in the moisture and protect against the elements.
This is not a shampoo I use daily as I find it a bit heavy for that and don't like to use that much oil on my hair all the time but every couple of weeks I like to give my hair a burst of this shampoo for a week or so. I find its particularly effective at this time of year too when my hair really gets blown around and really dried out in the cold weather. The shampoo comes in a big bottle, you can buy it in either 300ml or 500ml sizes. I like to buy the 300ml as I find this is big enough for me and I like it to be fresh when I use it. It has a little flip cap lid on it so its easy to open and close and pour some out onto your hands. The shampoo is white and very creamy looking and you can see that it is quite oil based as it has that consistency and look to it.
I find the shampoo really lathers into my hair well and what I like to do is let it sit there for a few minutes and I actually comb it through in the shower so it really reaches all of my strands of hair. The smell of this shampoo is absolutely amazing. It's not overly nutty in my opinion, even with the inclusions of the macadamia nut oil, but it is just a lovely strong, intoxicating smell. The nice thing is that I find the smell lasts on my hair for quite a while even after I have dried it and I love it. I also use some aussie moist conditioner but only a little bit as I find the shampoo is sometimes enough, I just need the conditioner to make sure my hair doesn't tangle.
Afterwards I find my hair is a lot nicer looking and has quite a bit of shine and is protected for the next couple of weeks so for an intensive moisture boost I definitely recommend this shampoo.
This shampoo was worked wonders for my hair !!
What the Manufactures Say
It's described as a miracle moist shampoo for hair that's a bit dry?damaged/ unhappy(perfect description of my over heat treated hair!)
The shampoo contains Australian macadamia nut oil which is supposed to infuse moisture into hair to smooth and condition. Also the shampoo ingredients have recently been slightly changed to include Aloe Vera for that extra moisturising boost.
The manufacturer advises to massage deeply into scalp and roots and for best results use their conditioner too !(no surprise there !)
The shampoo felt pretty standard, its thick white creamy pearlescent formula but it smells great, very sweet, it reminded me slightly of bubblegum!
Creamy coloured bottle with maroon writing and lid. Little picture of a kangaroo in keeping with Aussie theme!
The important question, Does it work ?
YES! With just one wash my hair was softer ,smoother and shinier!! I would strongly recommend this shampoo.
I use this everyday along with the conditioner and my hair is much healthier looking and mire manageable.
Here comes the bad news, this product retails in most shops at around 4.00-4.50 for 300 ml. It is worth but I would sugges keeping your eye out for the three for two offers in Boots!
I am quite a big fan of the Aussie brand and have used quite a lot from there collection, after bleaching my hair it was incredibly dry and I was advised to get a shampoo to help put some moisture back into my hair, having used Aussie before I decided to pick this one up as it was exactly what my hair needed.
I waited until after my hair had settled and got back into good condition before using, as it was too fragile to mess with..a few months later I started using this and like Aussies other products the smell is lovely, probably one of the nicest things about Aussie, it reminds me of bubblegum! BUT it was terribly drying to my hair, it made my hair incredibly knotty and uncomfortable, it was very hard to work into the hair and didn't help improve my hair at all, I used the Moist conditioner afterwards hoping for better results but I found that quite drying too.
I really wouldn't recommend this shampoo, it promises you healthy, shiny, soft looking hair..but I found it made me hair very dry and very difficult to work with.
I was sceptical. I thought it was a bit pricey and claimed a lot for a shampoo. I was wrong.
I have hair which suffers its way through dyeing, blow drying, central heating and living in the pollution of London. As a result my poor hair can be dry, brittle and pretty much the opposite of glossy, moist and healthy. I want something that works and makes my hair feel and look a lot better. It also goes a long way and means that sometimes you don't even need conditioner, which does offset the price a lot.
The shampoo does say to shampoo once. This may be possible in softer water areas. Unfortunately I live in a very hard water area and so find that I do need to shampoo and rinse twice.
The nourishing element comes from the oil of the Queensland Macadamia nut and this certainly does add moisture and shine to my hair. It smells good to, on both the hands and the hair.
There is a matching conditioner, which is obviously the best pairing for this shampoo, though I do find that it does go well with other Aussie conditioners not just the paired one. It also produces such a condition boosting effect that sometimes no conditioner is necessary at all.
Sometimes you need a huge collection of pricey hair treatments to deal with thin, coarse or damaged hair. But sometimes all that is needed is a good, simple but really effective shampoo which is as straightforward as the nationality it blazens on the bottle.
Aussie Moist is that shampoo. It does what it claims to do and if you try it, you will feel and see the difference in your own hair.
And all for £4.49 for a 300ml bottle at Boots, or 449 Advantage Points. Great value.
I tend to swop and change my shampoo between five different brands l have found that work for me, depending what is on special offer and what my mood is when shopping. Aussie is one of the brands that suits my hair.
I like the smell of this, despite it being a little strange as it reminds me a bit of Benylin, the children's cough medicine, which I rather like the taste of! The shampoo is a think liquid, cream in colour and slightly silky looking. Although its thick it comes out of the flip cap quite easily.
The shampoo is called "Miracle Moist" and I find it does keep my hair, which is thick and fizzy/curly feeling moisturised. The shampoo is tailored towards dry or damaged hair, I do have dry hair, hence my reason for choosing this product, although my hair is not damaged. My hair always feels really clean after using this, and I don't find it gets greasy quickly after washing, like with other shampoos I have tried I the past.
It's quite a simple, traditional shaped cream bottle with a plastic purple lid which has a push-down opener on the top of it. The bottle has 300ml of shampoo in.
It's a new formula, now with aloe vera, as well as macedonia nuts oil alongside the chemical ingredients which you would need to be a chemist to understand!
It's one of the more expensive brands I use costing around £3 a bottle. However I don't use much per wash, around a fifty pence piece blob and I also keep two shampoos on the go (one cheap, one more expensive) and rotate them as I find this stops my hair getting greasy so fast. It's almost as though if I use one product all the time on my hair it quickly becomes too used to it.
I like this shampoo and would recommend it to people with curly, frizzy hair as it really does moisture and condition hair.
My sister is a huge fan of the 'Aussie' brand of shampoo (which, can you believe it, comes from Australia!) and until recently I had never actually used the product. I'm a self-proclaimed cheapskate and tend to buy own brand shampoos as I tend to go through them pretty quickly and feel as though I'm wasting my money on a frivolous product. But recently I decided enough was enough, and splashed out on a bottle of this, to see what all the fuss was about. They offer a wide range of shampoos and conditioners and deep treatments for any kind of hair, so you can find one that is suitable for the state of your hair.
You can grab yourself a 250ml bottle from between £2 (if you look around) to as much as nearly a fiver which is a bit pricey, but if you are the type who is concerned with looking after themselves then its worth it. The product is described as being invaluable to 'dry/damaged /a bit unhappy' hair and uses Australian Queensland Macadamia Nut extract, which moisturises damaged hair helping to condition and smooth it out.
The treatment is excellent, leaving you with smooth and shiny hair. The smell is somewhat unusual, neither pleasant nor unpleasant, if anything it reminds me of a kind of medicine smell, but maybe that's just me. Apparently its prone to leaving your hair greasy, or a kind of residue on the hair, but I haven't experienced this as of yet, now having used it for 2 weeks. I have thin and pretty short hair, which is prone to becoming tangled and greasy quick, and this shampoo is one of a small list of shampoos that has consistently worked and kept my hair looking great.
Overall, this is a great product that I would definitely recommend. It is long lasting and makes your hair smell great, although the fragrance isn't as sweet as some other shampoos.
I've used other Aussie stuff before but thought I'd give this one a try as my hair has been really dry lately from excessive straightening etc. I've always been worried about using moisturising shampoos in case they leave my hair greasy and limp looking, so was a bit worried about this one. It was £3.99 for the 300ml bottle which seemed fairly reasonable.
It comes in a tall cream bottle with a purple lid which doesn't unscrew but clicks back. Most of the lettering is in dark purple and blue. To be honest the packaging is quite boring but also very typical of Aussie and at least it doesn't look cheap and tacky!
The shampoo itself is quite thick and despite being a gel texture it looked very creamy as well which was a good sign about its moisturising ability. I had to use a fair amount to create a nice lather over all of my hair, but my hair is very long so I expect to use quite a lot of shampoo each time. The foam itself was also quite thick so was easy to massage into my hair without it all sliding off, and it also felt really luxurious and moisturising.
The foam was relatively easy to wash out but I was extra careful to make sure it was really rinsed out with it being quite thick. After towel drying my hair I always try and comb it through, and found that it was easier to comb after using this shampoo which was a nice bonus.
Despite everything going well I was still worried my hair would like greasy and horrible when dried, but I had a really pleasant surprise when it was actually quite the opposite. My hair did feel really moisturised and I even noticed it looked shinier than usual, however it wasn't weighed down at all and actually felt lighter than usual. Even the day after I was noticing that while my hair would usually be feeling slightly greasy, it felt much fresher and cleaner than usual! Therefore the shampoo moisturised but refreshed my hair at the same time which was ideal.
I don't colour my hair anymore so couldn't comment on its effects on hair colour, however I felt that the fact it made my hair look shinier really brought out the colour of my hair and made it look better.
The smell is absolutely gorgeous, it smells just like traditional bubble gum which made it really enjoyable to use. I was really pleased when my hair held the smell even after drying and I noticed that it still smelt great the following day.
I would recommend this shampoo to anyone needing a moisture boost for their hair without weighing it down with heavy products. I'm giving this product 5 stars because it made my hair smell great, shiny, lightweight and moisturised all at the same time, and for £4 a bottle that is great value.
