I agree, I've used it twice on my frizzy curls and my hair looks really good for once!

This is not like aussie lol, it does the job, but its like comparing a Seiko to a Rolex, yes it will do the job but not near as well.

How so? Aussie is a standard formula of conditioning ingredients which is overpriced due to good advertising and marketing. Aussie is 'worth' no more than £1. Your comparison was a good try, but makes no sense, you are talking about watches which are made in different materials... One being expensive and one mass produced plastic....not haircare ingredients which are inexpensive and near enough the same thing... Different packaging.

I can remember picking this up (Oz Botanics shampoo), looking at the manufacturer and putting it back, as I thought it was a cheap Aussie-alike. (Poundland do a lot of own brands, but I can't remember who owns this one!). Might give it a go seeing as it gets good feedback!

It's nice, generally I only shampoo 2-3 times a week but I condition my hair daily because my hair is dry and curly and today and yesterday I've had great curly hair days I'm just glad I've found something affordable which is actually good because I can't keep spending £5 a week on condish! Lol xx

Made in China, sorry if I am honest I will avoid personally....It can't be as good as Aussie original...I use other stuff anyway, but I avoid unknown brands if I can now

So are most things, almost all products come from china. Aussie isn't innocent.. You may want to read this if you believe it's homegrown Australian goodness...


The National Skincare Authority and Livestrong have both declared that consumers of Aussie products must be aware that Aussie uses toxic chemicals in its manufacturing process. The National Skincare Authority has rated Aussie Shampoo a 1.1/10, a highly toxic hair care product in the shampoo category of the Natural Hair Care Product Review. The National Skincare Authority has also stated that “The Aussie Mega Shampoo does not meet any natural ingredient parameter.” Some Aussie products contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, an alkaline ingredient that helps penetrate dirt and oil on hair. This chemical is known to contain dioxane, an identified carcinogen (according to Natural Health Information). Many Aussie products also contain a variety of Parabens such as Propylparaben and Methylparaben, which have been linked to breast cancer (according to the Natural Skin Care Authority). However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published studies showing that there is no direct link between parabens and breast cancer.[11] Although this remains unproven, it is also believed there is a link between Aussie products and cancer due to the ingredient Cocamidopropyl Betaine, as seen in animal tests.
Aussie products also contain FD&C Yellow 5, which is linked to “reduced fertility and a reduced chance for a full term healthy pregnancy.”[12]
Aussie Mega Shampoo also contains chemicals that have not been certified or assessed for safety by The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR). Additionally, the brand has been frowned upon for testing on animals when its products have not been certified organic and use synthetic chemicals. The very fact that the product is not certified organic causes many to believe that the product contains genetically modified organisms and pesticides.

aussie shampoo's are made in France...but I must admit I picked one of these up the other day and read china and placed it back. I will give it a try now though after reading this thread

Having used it Its really nothing like Aussie besides the name

I have to agree with LaurenJ90 I have used both & Aussie mate is in a different league but I often get Aussie 3 for 10 quid at boots. Wouldn't use oz again.

i tried aussie. not worth paying extra at all. did nothing. john freida range is much better.
