Anyone use Costco Kirkland's poo & cond?

I'm looking to find out the ingredients of the Kirkland's shampoo AND conditioner.

Can someone help me out?

I don't have a Costco membership but a friend does though I haven't been invited to go shopping in a long time.
Hi Liz -- I have a Costco card Just got it about a week ago. What do you know about this poo and condish?? I've never heard of it.

I used to use both in the 90s in western & eastern WA. I loved them at the time & don't recall what's in them. Though I think the conditioner has one silicone & can't remember which one. I think the conditioner was medium to thick & rather moisturizing. I can't remember if the shampoo is a sulfate & if it's gentle or harsh, but for some reason I want to say it was on the gentle side. The containers are liter size & come with a pump & the price is for a set of 2.

Then we moved to AR & there aren't any Costco's there, just Sam's Club.

Then we moved to UT & didn't feel the need to get a card with having two sets of friends who have cards & told us we could go with them when they went or when we needed to go. But when I asked, I never heard anything from them, so I didn't ask again & here we are maybe less than a year away from moving to MO or IL & I don't see us getting a card for that amount of time.

I'm going to ask the one set of friends again, who didn't move out of state, if I can go the next time they do.
The conditioner is good stuff since they re-formulated it. The shampoo was always good, but the condish was like Paul Mitchell which did nothing for me. I always thought it was too runny and thin. Sine they changed it, everyone I work with has raved about it. And if you use it a few times and hate it, you can always get a refund.

Darby....welcome to Costco!!
What? Where?

Well, I'm going to be talking to one of the cardholders today or tomorrow to see if I can go shopping.

Update about MO & IL not having Costco; they do! We can get a card after all!
If you come find me I can give you a one day shop pass. Cuz you the coolest!

When i get home tonight or sometime soon I will find the bottle so I can post the ingredients - I looked online but it looks like it has been reformulated and has a new bottle design as well so i dont want to give you misinformation.

I know for sure that it has "Jojoba protein" in it. This stuff has AMAZING slip and is really thick. The smell reminds me of what a lot of salons use - really do like that part. I stopped using it for a little while though because my skin had been breaking out around the hairline quite a bit and I wanted to see if this was the culprit - but i have a feeling it was a Garnier Smoothing Milk product i was using - so I will give Kirklands another try.

I had also recently bought some Jessicurl and wanted to try that out without mixing. JC seems to be working great. I thought maybe i was also protein sensitive to the Kirkland's but then i realized JC has protein too.

I will be trying it again soon and will post here. I get the impressing you woudl need to switch up from it or clarify it as it seems to build up some....

I have enough of that stuff to last me a year i think! SO its hard to justify my recent PJ needs....
3b, and increasingly c pieces... my curls will always be a little confused, but that is just fine!

Maybe it's a case of different proteins or something else in the products my hair doesn't like. I don't know how to go about figuring out how to eliminate specific ingredients without so much reading, comparing, buying & trying. That just seems too hard.
Ok here you go!!

Kirkland Hydrating Conditioner
(jojoba Protein w/ Rosemary and Golden Seal Extracts - 40oz. bottle)

Purified Water (aqua), cetearyl alcohol, cetrimomium chloride, behentrimonium methosulfate, stearalkonium chloride, propylene glycol, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) extract, hydrastis canadensis (golden seal) extract, algae extract, simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) protein, polyquaternium-37, fragrance (parfum), decyl oleate, citric acid, methylisothiazoinone, methyl paraben, propylparaben

So there is at least one protein in it - i have no idea if the other ingred's are good or bad.... any thoughts?

It looks great to me! The other naturals are extracts, so that's cool too. The parabens are preservatives. I think the rest might just be thickeners, anti-static stuff, anti-foaming agents or blah blah blah.
glad it looks good! i hope you have good luck with it....

i gave it a go again last night and tried overnight plopping for the first time (used VO5, Kirklands then JC RR/CCSS)

no doubt this is a great CO - still as i remember, very thick and slippery. the smell is pretty strong (but still a good smell)

when i woke up it still smelled pretty strong but i did a CO wash with VO5 Kiwi Lime squeeze which is also pretty strong so it was either the combo or it was the V05 i think - very potent!

I will try them separately and see how it goes.

Lazy loops - let me know if you buy it!!! I bet lots of curlies would like this stuff

I just thought I'd update the official thread & say that I got some thanks to my friend who always has conditioner left over. They're all straighties & probably on the oily side, so they go through shampoo maybe three times faster than they do conditioner. So she sold me one bottle so I wouldn't have two sitting around for a year or more, between all my other conditioner purchases.

Darby, here's information about the one protein that's in the conditioner:
Jojoba Protein HP

Precipitations of proteins in the bottom of the container is normal. CAS# 100684-35-3. INCI Name: hydrolyzed jojoba protein. Properties: Hair: forms hydroscopic film on the hair & retains moisture, highly effective to repair & condition damaged hair, ideal for adding shine & lustre to the hair. Skin: effective moisturizer, proven skin-tightening & anti-aging effects, reduces fines lines and wrinkles.
