Trader Joes's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner

Like Tree4Likes

Trader joes TTT conditioner is my staple cowash conditioner. I've been using it for over a year and I love it.
I'm so pleased HoC and mimismom and all of you other guys love it, too. I was afraid of this conditioner not getting enough love and I didn't want people to be missing out. I tried it out as a cowash on the scalp this week and it doesn't cause any product buildup so suddenly I'm not afraid to co-wash the scalp again! For realsies, this stuff is amazing.

Dusalocks and Co., I have tried several Cowash conditioners and frankly the best, and for me the detangling ability is the most important, is TJ Tea Tree. It does not compare to the other popular CG friendly conditioners out there
(V05 Milk (2nd best), Tresemme (not a fan), Shea Moisture Retention Conditioner (poor slip), etc.). I used to be a product junkie but no more.
Yay! I know! Isn't it amazing? It's my HG conditioner for sure. I think it's the mallow in there that causes my hair to separate and detangle almost by itself. (Mallow is in my beloved kinky curly knot today which I don't use for detangling really since it's my LI, but which I believe might help promote clumpage.)

Oh no wait. It's not mallow but marshmallow. Hmm. . .well there's something in there giving it that fantastic slip! Maybe the horsetail?

I picked up a couple bottles of this when we were on vacation and wow..I really love this conditioner!!! I've used it as a co-wash and a rinse out...LOVE!! Only downside...I cannot buy it locally . There is supposed to be a store open up about two hours from where I live...sooooo I may have to stock up when I'm anywhere near there. Unfortunately I have no idea when the store is supposed to open . I'm glad I picked up a couple bottles though. They should last me a while. I also picked up the nourishing one but haven't tried it yet. I love the price of this too! I wished they sold it in liters..or better yet gallons. I will probably have a family member ship me several bottles . I cannot believe they are selling a bottle for over $10 at amazon, plus shipping!!'

Just adding my vote for TTT. My hair tends to be very picky about conditioners for CO, and it loves TTT. It's cleansing and moisturizing, with plenty of slip for detangling. I finally got my husband to go CO (he swims 3-4 times a week, and his hair is fine and dry), and he's very happy with it as well.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Suave conditioner, LAL gel
I give it an A++++ too! I love the slight lather I get with it, and the smell is fresh and clean. It's cheap too....until I factor in the hour drive each way to TJ. Next time I'll buy more. The only 2 cowashes I like are this, and CJ daily fix.

Anyone use this as a leave-in?
2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
Cleanse: CJ Daily Fix, JC Cleansing Cream, TJ Tea Tree Condish
Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)
Stylers: UFD CM, CJ PP, JC Spiralicious, Darcy's Cream Gel & Cocoa bean whip
I don't think you should use it as leavein. It might give you a burning sensation with the tea tree and peppermint.
It is amazing and my HG conditioner! You can leave in a tiny amount near the ends but not near the scalp

Makes a great co wash !

I just wish the shampoo didn't have a sulfate.
Current routine:
DEVA No Poo, as a shampoo and conditioner in one (can be used on dry hair to remove build up, then wet hair and complete washing process).

DEVA One Conditioner or TJ Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner as a co-wash (1 - 2X a week)

DEVA light gel & volumizing mousse on very wet hair, scrunch with a microfiber towel

Diffuse with duck clips

I'm very intrigued by this conditioner. I'm wondering if it would be similar at all to the Giovanni TTTT though?

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

DusaLock, happy to know I am not the only one not too crazy about the SM Conditioner. I ll check the paraben information online. I am not too informed about this. Also a good natural product that works as both a leavein and curl styler/gel is aloe Vera gel with jojoba oil. I use 3 tbsp avg plus 1 tbsp oil for my length (mid neck if stretched with finger) and type of hair (4a). Try it out!

I'd love to use the Tea Tree Tingle. Wanna know if I can use it as a cowash & leave in and save some money. Love the products I currently use, but I'm more price conscious then ever before (college kid probs), so looking for alternatives.
Maybe they've changed the formula. Here's the current ingredients list:

water, tea tree, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, nettle oil, thyme oil, birch leaf oil, chamomile oil, clary, coltsfoot leaf, yarrow oil, mallow, horsetail oil, soybean protein, cetyl alcohol, vitamin e, trace minerals, citric acid, sodium hydroxymethylgycinate, grape seed

I don't see any parabens.
Peace,
Morgan

Baby Fine 3B, low porosity, normal density and elasticity

The stuff was not moisturizing at all for my hair and made it dry and tangly.
Another vote up for TTT. I just recently started CG and I wanted an affordable conditioner that will help my itchy scalp. I love it! It detangles my hair so easily and leaves it really soft and moisturized. I've been using it as a co-wash and a rinse out. I've been wondering if I should get a different rinse out but I don't think I will since my hair likes TTT so much.
Type: In between 3A/3B I believe
