Very Late August Empties

This is my first ever empties post! I love reading these as I feel the reviews are more truthful. Nobody is going to use an entire product if it was terrible and bad or if they have used a product repeatedly over a period of time, rather than using it once and declaring their undying love for a product, they will have a better idea of what the product is like.
Personally, I am really bad at finishing products because I always find something new and shiny that I want to try instead. I don't like throwing things away if they're only half used either do I made a particular effort over the summer to finish off some products that have been lingering in my bathroom.
1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor deep conditioner: I love this, my hair feels so silky and good afterwards. It smells yummy too. It does take a lot of rinsing to get it out if my hair properly. More than once i had to rewash my hair after blowdrying (pain in the bum) because I hadn't rinsed thoroughly. I will undoubtedly repurchase this product.
2. Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day shampoo: I really loved the packaging. I love all Soap & Glory packaging though. This shampoo was a bit bizarre, it was vaguely fruity scented but it also smelled quite acidic if that makes sense. The 'cleaning agent' in the shampoo was, I think, raspberry vinegar. It did leave my hair very clean, but it also felt as if it was stripping all the good oils from my hair too and left me with a very dry scalp. Not fun. I don't think I would buy this again when there are so many other lovely shampoos for me to try!
3. L'Oreal Studio Hot Straight straightening cream: This used to be my go to hair product, it smells nice, it doesn't make my hair sticky or greasy and supposedly "protected" my hair, whilst helping me straighten it. First of all, it actually does nothing to help straighten my hair and second, my hair actually had more split ends after using this, than using no product at all. For me, it just didn't do what it said on the tin. Completely unimpressed.
4. Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur ultimate repair 1 minute treatment: My first problem with this product is how much I paid for it (20chf) which is extortionate. I was livid when I saw how cheap it is in England. The consistency felt pretty gross and it didn't smell very nice (which meant neither did my hair). It was a bitch to rinse out properly and my hair was greasy-looking every single time I used this product. There are nicer hair masks available.
5. Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance leave in conditioner: I had this for literally an Age. I really liked it, even if it didn't feel like it was doing anything for my hair. It wasn't good enough to use as a conditioner after shampooing but it was a great moisture boost after my normal conditioner.It smelled heavenly, I got compliments a lot when I used this. The best thing was that I could spritz this on my hair and it would smell just washed. If this still exists, I will consider repurchasing as its a lovely product.
Have you used any of these products? What did you think of them?
