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,








Fav Hair Oils


Hey Y’all!!  The word of the day is..OIL! Not only is it a great sealant but it has other great benefits as well. Like any other products you have to find the one you like and what works.

Here are our favorites…


Olive oil- I have been using olive oil ever since we started our natural hair journey. My hair just loves it! I use it for pre-poo. It helps to soften the tangles and prep my hair for shampooing.

Grape seed oil- I use this on my scalp and for a sealant after I moisturize. It is light weight and I can use it every other day. It also promotes hair growth.

Coconut oil- I’ve just started to use this on my hair as a sealant. I tried using it for pre-poo and I’m still trying to figure out if I like it or not. (more on this in a future post).


Organix Argan Oil of Morocco- I like it because it’s light and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. Unlike my sister I haven’t tried the other oils on my hair but I do want to try and see what others oils out there that I would like.

Here’s a little info on oil and how it works when it pertains to hair:

Oil: any neutral , non polar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperature.

Oils are both hydrophobic “water fearing” and Lipophilic “fat loving”

Non Polar: doesn’t mix with water

Hair Structures

Hair Shaft: part of the hair that sticks out of the skin and scalp

Medulla: deepest layer of the hair shaft; only seen in large and thick hairs

Cortex: middle layer of the hair shaft which provides the strength, color and texture of a hair fiber

Outer layer: thin and colorless and serves as protection to the cortex

Oil seals in moisture it doesn’t create moisture. So if your hair is dry and you apply oil you will seal in the dryness.

❀Our hair is made of dead cells that have turned into keratin and binding material together with small amounts of water

❀Oil  does not permeate the hair shaft because of the small amount of water that holds the shaft together

❀ Leave in conditioner or conditioning styling products are able to permeate the hair because the first ingredient water

What oils are your favorite? Let us know!
