Don't all the Aussie hair products just smell so so nice ?!
I bought two Aussie conditioners yesterday (Miracle Moist Conditioner and Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner) I haven't yet used them because I skipped a hair wash yesterday but I can smell them every time I am near them I can't wait to use them tonight :D
I do like to know what I'm putting in my hair, so I thought I would do an ingredient research to find out what is in these conditioners.
I picked 5 ingredients, at random for each conditioner and researched them...
Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner :
Cetearyl Alchohol : It is not actually alcohol (which would be drying), it is made from vegetable sources and is used for moisturising and as a thickening agent.
Linalool : I come across this in many ingredients and discovered it is found in plants and is used for it's scent.
Aloe Barbadensis : I didn't have to research this one because I knew it was Aloe Vera which is used for moisturising and protecting.
Anthemis Nobilis : That is the Latin name for Chamomile, it is widely used for Aromatherapy so may have been added for scent.
Ethylparaben : A preservative.
Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner :
Citric Acid : A weak organic acid which is used as a preservative.
Cetrimonium Chloride : An anti-septic.
Simmondsia Chinensis : Latin for Jojoba. Jojoba is moisturising.
Hexyl Cinnamal : A common additive to perfumes and cosmetics.
Melissa Officinalis : Latin for Lemon balm, it has a gentle Lemon scent (which I can slightly smell when I sniff the product).
I don't know about anyone else but does this ingredient research thing bore you or interest you? Just wondering cause personally I find it quite interesting cause I don't think enough people actually know whats in their cosmetics these days. If researching these ingredients bore you just say please and I will stop doing it lol :P
