New Product Review|| Trader Joe’s

Hey Ya’ll it’s Lesley!!  So for the past month I have been using  Trader Joe’s hair products  because I wanted to try something different, and it has paid off. I have been using the Tea Tree Tingle and the Nourish Spa Balanced Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.

So let me tell you a few things about them…

 

Nourishing Spa Balanced Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

  • Both are enriched with Organic Botanicals ( its infused with plant material that helps with healthy hair production)
  • Balanced shampoo to clean and protect
  • Helps with re-moisturizing dry, brittle hair ( conditioner)
  • Adds moisture and the hair is more manageable
  • Cruelty Free (No Animal Testing Contains no harmful sulfates)

Once I used this product my hair felt soft, my curls were defined, I hardly had any frizz, and it cut my detangling time in half. The conditioner does have a silicone in it, but that’s a good thing for me because I have high porosity and it helps retain the moisture in my hair.

 

Tea Tree Tingle

  • Contains Tea Tree Peppermint and Eucalyptus Botanicals
  • Suitable for all hair types
  • Contains no harmful Sulfates
  • Cleanses without stripping the hair too much
  • Cruelty Free

This product surprised me the most because I was using peppermint soap to clarify my hair and afterwards I would have to put so much moisture back in. It felt brittle when I was done, but after using the Tea Tree Tingle, it was soft and I still had life in my curls even though I clarified my hair.

These products have changed the way my hair has felt and the way my final styles look and it has been amazing. The price point for both of these products are affordable. You can purchase these items at you local Trade Joe’s or on Amazon in sets for under 20 dollars.

Much Love,

Hey Y’all! Erica here and I wanted to give my first impression on Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Conditioner. This is my second time trying Trader Joe’s hair products and I’ve had my eye on this for a while.

 

 

First off I love the packaging. I think that it’s cute but simple. I had high expectations for this product because of my experience in the past; and it didn’t disappoint.

I love the consistency of the shampoo; it has a gel like consistency. For this to be a sulfate free shampoo the lather is on 10. But my hair didn’t feel hard or unmanageable. The conditioner is so lovely. It’s super creamy and my hair was so soft.

 

 

The smell is very light and not over powering. The “tingle” is very refreshing. It does not burn which is nice.

 

This duo is definitely will be apart of my clarifying regime. I will be repurchasing plus the price was pretty good.

Have you tried any of Trader Joe’s Shampoos and Conditioner? Which ones?

Finger Detangling = Less Shrinkage

Finger Detangling = Less Shrinkage

Hey Yall! Erica here! So I started a new thing with my hair regimen…Finger detangling only. Now at first I was a bit skeptical be cause I have always use combs and a Denman to detangle my hair. Now I have been natural for  almost three years and I noticed that I was not retaining length. Well in cases like this you have to pay close attention to your hair. I was not. I was just going with the flow and doing my hair as normal.

I discovered that I was losing too much hair while detangling. There would be mounds of hair afterwards and my scalp would be so sore. Also I was trimming my hair way to much but we’ll save that for another post. I went to YouTube like most naturals do and I discovered this young lady, her YouTube name is hi- imcurrentlyobsessed.  I saw her detangling video and I was so excited, finally a way that I can detangle my hair and cut the time in half. So this Friday was wash day for me and I detangled my hair using her tips in 15 minutes. Here is how I did it.

1.) First I parted my hair in three sections: back, middle and top. She recommended that the parts be straight. It helps with less manipulation and less breakage. Straight parts never go away so when you get ready to detangle again it will be easier to part.

2.) I detangled each section starting from the back. I didn’t add any products, my hair was dry. That was my preference but if you want to add product you can!

3). When each section was detangled I twist it and pinned it up with my clips.

I had less hair that came out and a little  more when I washed it. It was NOT a hand full of hair…Thank God!! After washing I did my usual L.O.C. Method and flat twisted my hair. The next morning I took my hair down and my hair did not shrink up as much. Usually my twist are so small but my twist had length. It was softer and had more body than it did when I would use a Denman. My ends were even smooth which was a total surprise.

I love the results that I got from this method and I will continue this!!! Be sure to check out hi- imcurrentlyobsessed on YouTube!!!

Much Love,
