I'm definitely planning to. I just haven't gotten to it yet.

I caved and bought the Moist co and the Catch the Wave Sprunch Spray hairspray today. They were 2 for $5 at RiteAid, and I couldn't resist!

I'm excited to try them both, but I'm a bit wary of the spray, since it has alcohol denat in it. But I figure if it dries out my hair to horribly I can just stop using it. I'll admit, I sprayed some on my dry hair today after I got home from the store, and it seemed to enhance the curl quite a bit. Made my hair hard and tangly, but that's what putting ANY product onto my dry hair does.

I'll report back tomorrow with my review. I'll be using my Elucence MBS, the Moist co, re:coil, and the Sprunch spray. We'll see how that goes!

Well, I finally tried mine, so now I have two GREAT conditioners in the shower: VS So Sexy & the new Aussie Moist.

I reported on the VS on another thread.

This Aussie Moist is "da bomb!" I love the slip & the scent isn't bad either. I'm not one to really give an opinion on clumping since my hair will do it, but won't hold onto it, or it won't do it at all. It's just stubborn & it never matters what product I use. Detangling is also great with the Aussie Moist.

I'm very happy with it!

Good to know!! I'm loving Loreal's new condish for curly hair but I'll try Aussie Moist when I run out. I like the way Aussie products smell anyway.

I just used the Aussie Moist conditioner this morning. Wow...I love it. As others have said, the slip is great and it detangles really well. I have been using the new Vive one for curly hair for a couple of weeks and I like it, but the Aussie is better. My hair is so soft and silky and no frizz!! Yay!!

Well, I didn't post the day after, but here it is:

I really liked the Aussie Moist co. It had good slip, a nice fresh sweet scent, and left my hair soft and shiny. I'm not sure if it did anything to boost curl, but I liked it.

The Sprunch Spray, on the other hand, was terrible. I tried it as the primary styler, over my re:coil, and got NO curl, dry, disgusting hair. It was gross. Then I tried it as a finisher, sprayed onto dry hair for extra hold. It got very tangly, I actually LOST curl, and it felt gross and sticky. I think my hair really hates alcohol denat. But yes, the Sprunch Spray is one of the only products that I've straight up thrown out.

How is the Aussie Moist with clumping? The smell isn't that grape sodaish smell, is it? I would love to try the new Aussie products, but I hate the smell of them!

I got great clumping, and while I didn't love the smell in the bottle, it wasn't hideous as I remembered, and it smelled nice once it was in my hair. It also made the bathroom smell nice .

ETA: I'm pretty sure the clumping was from the Moist, as I used the same stylers I've been using for a few weeks now (GF S&S and Gel +Water- I need to find some of the Sun Touched Shine Gel before my last bottle of Gel +_Water is empty).

I'd agree with cosmicfly that the clumping was good. And the smell is definitely NOT that grapey smell of some of the stylers. It's more of a...man, I can't think of a comparison. Like a vanilla custard, almost? But you can sorta smell some aloe in there, too. It's bizarre, but nice. And I didn't find that the smell lingered on my hair.

I thought it was more of a light fresh scent with an undertone of floral, or maybe fruit. It's not overpowering & I find it fades quickly.

Did anyone else get the pump-size bottle & how many pumps are you using?

I use three pumps due to the length of my hair; almost to mid back. A tablespoon possibly?

Ah well back to the drawing board!
It's always been in there. I had an ancient bottle of 3MM and it was the same.
I haven't checked out hte generic one yet but I'm really curious if it smells similar. I love the smell of 3MM.

And, yes, simethicone is used in antacids but it's still a silicone. It is water soluble though.
