Default Giovanni Products

Has anyone used these or know which ones are CG?

http://www.giovannihaircare.co.nz/products.htm

I saw at my Meijer today 50/50 BALANCED SHAMPOO, TEA TREE TRIPLE TREAT SHAMPOO, 50/50 BALANCED HAIR REMOISTURISER, and TEA TREE TRIPLE TREAT CONDITIONER.

Also some styling products but wasn't really interested in those.

thanks

I think they're all CG, if for CG, protein is acceptable. I know sometimes protein can make hair feel dry, but if it's not a problem for you, then Giovanni products are very good and moisturizing. Again, they do contain plenty of wheat and soy proteins. At leas for the Giovanni conditioners I've used.

Yup, they're all CG. And fabulous. I love the 50/50 co, TTTT co, 50/50 poo, Silk-whatever co, and Direct Leave-In (but I just use the 50/50 co for leave in now). Haven't tried the TTTT poo yet but I bet I'd like it. They make great products, especially the 50/50 co.

I used the TTT s&c and liked it, but I think the products had too much oil for me.

Everything I've used contained proteins, I believe. I haven't had any problems but YMMV.

I've used the 50:50 Remoisturizer and the Triple Treat - loved them both and never had any problems. Except I HATE the bottles! So darn hard to get the last bit of product out :x !

One of these days, when I weed through the 16 conditioners I have in waiting, I'm going to try the Direct Leave-in.

I havent tried these, but I recently tried the sunset styling solution and the gel. These are wonderful! I get defined curls in no time. I put the styling solution in a spray bottle and spray it in my hair once I rinse out my conditioner. Then I scrunch in the gel, plop and diffuse. I am hoping its the product and not the warmer weather that's doing me a favor......

I hate those darn bottles too! So annoying. Plus the top traps water like crazy and it's almost impossible to get it all out to pack the bottle for a trip.
I'm always happy when I can find a place with the giant bulk bottles with a pump. You just put the amount you want into a nice rounded push top bottle. It's a little cheaper too. Earth Fare usually has this set-up.
