Tested Thursday: Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo – Mega Instant

tt-aussie-thIf you’re like me you hate the hassle of washing your hair. It can take forever to get it washed, conditioned, dried, styled and looking fabulous. And if you’re like me, you like finding ways to get just one more day out of your hair between washes. So, for today’s Tested Thursday I am hoping for a miracle in the form of Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo.


The one I have here is the Mega Instant variant, one of three that are available, he other two being Colour Mate (guess what hair this is best for) and Aussome Volume (for fresh and fulsome locks packed full of boing and bounce). The Mega Instant variety though, is:

“The hair reviver to refresh your mane for the day ahead – a spritz, a quick brush through and a “jjujj” and you’re ready to roll”

Firstly, what on earth is a jjujj? (Shake your hair a little, Google tells me) But this does sound like a nice little thing to get another day pre wash for your hair. I am told that it helps to reduce nasty residue, build up and that leftover white dust that you can get with other dry shampoos. But, does it?


Okay, design. It looks like a hairspray can. That’s about all I can say about it. It has a huge Aussie logo and the words miracle dry shampoo at the top of the can, so you wont mix it up with your other hair cans. That’s good, but yeah, don’t go expecting bells and whistles and all that from it. Further down, after it tells you it’s for normal to greasy hair, we are proudly informed that it contains Australian Jojoba Seed Extract, and that it wards off grease and revives your hairs general fabulousness in a matter of minutes (so THAT’S what it does!)

On the back there are more reasons why you should use it, another mention of jojoba seeds, and the directions. As they wrap halfway around the can I couldn’t photograph it, but it says to:

“Shake and shake again before use (it, not you). Spray into the roots from about 30 cm, massage in and brush out well”

You can also use it with an Aussie leave in conditioner, if you’re so inclined (but that takes more time). I wasn’t so inclined (I’ll be washing and conditioning my hair tomorrow anyway) so I just got on with it.

Before: Three day old hair, a bit untidy, a bit unruly but not entirely awful


After: Followed all the instructions. Shook and shook again. Held about 30 cm away and sprayed into the roots in bursts. Massaged it in and gave it a “jjujj” and brushed out with a fine bristled brush.


I will say it. It does look better. Not entirely fabulous, but sleek, shiny and tidy-ish. For me and my birds nest that very nearly is a miracle, so Miracle Dry Shampoo, I do believe you passed. I can’t feel much of a residue of it in my hair, it doesn’t leave white powderyness, and it doesn’t smell too bad. I think I will be using it again when I need another day out of my hair.

Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo is widely available in pharmacies and supermarkets for a RRP of €5.85 for the large 180ml can.

What do you think of dry shampoos? Are you a follower of the way of Batiste, or is there another dry shampoo you recommend?
