The $3 Hair Mask Worth Trying

Move over, Sephora! No need to spend a fortune on a hair mask when Aussie exists! (JK Sephora I still <3 you!) When I saw this hair mask was only $3 dollars, I’ll admit, I was hesitant.

The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Smooth Deep Conditioner has become a staple in my routine! While you’re in the shower, work this into your hair and let it soak in for 3 minutes. I skip conditioning entirely when I […]
