Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment - review


We received this hair treatment in August 2014's Lust Have It Women's Box, which has to go down as one of my favourite boxes ever purely because it contained my HG face wipes (Essenzza Fuss Free Naturals, reviewed here), and I wouldn't have discovered those otherwise.

That box was a pretty decent one overall and it also contained this product, which was the sneak peek item and it caused a lot of excitement at the time. I'd never heard of it but plenty of lasses had and raved about it, so I was excited to try it.

I opened it at the time but then set it aside to get through some older products, but in the last two months I've dusted it off and started using it again. Even then it's taken me a while to feel able to write this review, because this is one of those products that hasn't felt that consistent: some days I love it and others I don't. I think it performs better or worse depending on what shampoo/conditioner I'm using and what kind of condition my hair is in overall.

This smells quite strong - I'm sniffing piña colada - and the smell lingers a little on your hair and hands, so do be aware of that if you're not a fan of fragranced products.

It's a white, light-feeling cream that spreads well, so a little goes a long way and one pump of the bottle is enough for my long hair (I focus mainly on the ends and put just a bit on the flyaways around my face). The bottle will last for ages and for that reason I think it's good value. 

I use it on my damp hair after washing and also between washes when my hair is looking a bit dry and frizzy. I do notice a difference but it's not the best comparable product that I've used: I still prefer John Frieda's Frizz Ease and will be returning to that once I've finished the hair products I've received from subscription boxes (if that ever happens ; ) ).

It's definitely moisturising and detangling, but it doesn't deal with my flyaways well and I can also 'feel' it on my hair to start with (so it seems a bit heavy), but the heaviness mostly disappears after a while and no greasy residue is left behind, although I can feel that I've put something on my hair and it therefore reduces the time between washes.

As for the other claims, I don't think it adds shine but it does help with smoothness. It does feel like it adds some protection again heat styling, and it coats your hair so it probably helps prevent split ends and strengthens fragile hair. I don't think it helps enhance natural body but it may well protect your hair against damage due to the coating it offers. 

Really, how well it works depends I think on your hair type. I have noticed that this works better when my hair is straightened: it doesn't fare as well when it isn't (it's naturally wavy). I've no idea why that's the case but I wonder whether curly-haired lasses might prefer other products.

In sum, I like this and I'll use it, but it's not Frizz Ease.
