#5 Neutrogena Triple Moisture Hair Mask
Starting off our list at #5 is the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Hair Mask. The consistency of this product is not nearly as thick as others on this list, but still gets the job done well. This product completely leaves your hair soft and shiny, perhaps too soft. I found it a little tough to style after since my hair felt like a baby's hair once it was dry. It certainly moisturized and left me with a lot less frizz. I know it sounds crazy saying this, but I feel like it left my hair a little too soft and a little tough to manage. That is what puts this product at the bottom of my list of favorites.
#4 Garnier Fructis Strength & Repair Deep Conditioner
Before I even purchased this product my friends were talking about how they used it and it was a miracle product for them. So, clearly I had to run out to try it that afternoon. It costs about $8.00 at your local drug store. For starters, just opening up the jar was great, as you must know by now, there is never any hair product that Garnier Fructis makes that does not smell amazing! After applying it only one time I noticed a difference in my hair. My hair is a bit dry and frizzy so anything that can get rid of all of that in one use is good in my book, and this did just that. I wouldn't haul off and call it a complete miracle product, but I will say that I used the entire thing and feel that it did work well in leaving my hair very conditioned and non-frizzy.
#3 Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
Smack dab in the middle of my list is this little gem, The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. This could possibly be the most underrated company that I have tried out. Their products are so affordable that I feel that people are turned off by that and think that they do not work. I am here to tell you that this entire line of hair care products are wonderful and definitely worth checking out. This conditioner will cost you about $3 at your local drug store, yes, I said $3. Another thing about this that I love is that you do not have to dig your hands into a bucket to get the product out, you just squeeze it out like a regular bottle of shampoo. I slap that in my hair wait 3 minutes, as the name suggests, and rinse out. This leaves my hair very shiny and less frizzy. I use this one a few times a week, which may sound like a lot, but I feel it acts more like a great conditioner instead of a "DEEP" conditioner that you should only use once a week.
#2 Biolage Matrix Conditioning Balm
My runner up is the conditioning balm by Biolage. This one takes the cake on the following, scent, thickness and price. This is the most expensive on the list, coming in at about $25, at the drug store, but I do really love it. If you have ever used any biolage products you know how wonderful they smell. Just opening the jar makes me feel like I am sitting in a salon getting my hair washed, which is one of my favorite things to do. Once I apply this and leave on for a while in the shower it does not start running down my back and into my eyes. The thickness of this product leaves it exactly where you put it. This product leaves my hair so silky smooth with no frizz, even on those hot and humid days. I also find myself smelling my hair throughout the day since this product scent just stays with you for the whole day! Overall, one of my favorites.
#1 Macadamia Deep Repair Hair Mask
Here is my number one winner hands down! The Macadamia Nut Deep Repair Mask is the best all around hair mask I have ever tried. I feel that the reason this works so well is due to the fact that it is full of natural oils that are so beneficial to your hair. Macadamia oil, argan oil, tea tree oil and camomile oil are all in this and after one use you can tell why. My hair feels like I have someone else's healthy "hair commercial" hair on my head. I have thin hair so anything that leaves my hair too soft makes it very hard for me to style. This product has just the right amount of weight to it to leave my hair so manageable that it almost styles itself...ok, maybe not, I wish I had that ability, but close. If I had one grip it would be that it doesn't smell as wonderful as the others listed above, but for the results I can look past that. I have been using this product for quite a while now and see no signs of stopping, I just love it.
