Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner

Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner ($4.00/16 oz)

Product Description: We've worked with an upscale boutique to bring you this salon-quality conditioner that will rejuvenate your hair with its refreshing tingle. A blend of certified organic botanicals including peppermint and tea tree work together to moisturize and clarify your hair while alleviating dry scalp. (This is the description for both their poo and conditioner.)

Ingredients: 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

My Experience: Who is responsible for this atrocity?! Seriously, one of you should have emailed me and told me that it would be in my best interest to try this conditioner IMMEDIATELY. I've heard good reviews, and received gentle nudges from several of you (including my friend Terron), but dang, I had no idea it was like this!!!! This ish right here...this right here....!!!!

I bought a bottle last week, and finally popped the top tonight. I was dreading my detangling session—it had been 6 days, and my hair was dry, frizzy, and incredibly tangled. I hopped in the shower and applied it generously from root to tip. I'm not a fan of minty-smelling products, but I enjoyed the tingling sensation on my scalp. As soon as I applied it, I swear, my tangles melted away. It is super, SUPER slippery!!! I'm guessing it's the oils? Whatever it is, it' s just as effective as Herbal Essence with fewer, and more natural, ingredients. For all of you cruelty-free, organic chicas, this conditioner is a must try! It has a bit of protein in it (toward the bottom of the list), so I won't be leaving it in, but it'll probably become one of my staple co-wash conditioners. Oh, and I'm not sure if it was a fluke or not, but I had much less shedding than usual...much less :)

Bottom Line: Excellent slip, moderate moisture, fresh tingly sensation, cruelty free, high quality ingredients...4 bucks. If you're not on it yet, it should definitely be at the top of your PJ wish list.

@mgc-uwi- You can find it at Trader Joe's Super Market if you have one where you live. Check it out on the website!

I will defninitely be trying this. I will give a update soon. Thanks for the review!

I would love to try this product but Amazon.com has it for $8.95. Where is it available for $4?

I have 4a hair been using this product for a few years now, and it's a must for me and my children (who are 3c and 4a) for co-washing and detangling. I also find that it leaves great curl definition after rinsing. I tried it as a leave-in but it left my hair kind of dull looking, so I just use is for co-washing.

I tried it and loved it as well, but my hairdresser told me that I should stay away from tea tree oil, as it tends to pull the color from color-treated hair, which mine is.

I have 3b hair and absolutely love this! It's a fantastic CO and cheap too. Added bonus, it's cruelty free.
