A few months ago I was traveling in New York and by pure kismet my hotel maid left an unattended cart of Aveda products by my hotel door for a full 24-hours. Rob was completely mortified but you can BET I filled my little toiletry bag full of their famous rosemary-mint shampoo and conditioner (As a beauty junkie, I know the street price for Aveda products is way high).
Unfortunately, my stash ran out a few months ago, but I NEEDED that special high of a tingly-clean scalp that could only be achieved by essential oils and expensive salon brand shampoo. Luckily for me, Trader Joe’s saved the day (as always).
Their Tea-Tea Tingle shampoo is sulfate-free (see my previous post on the benefits of sulfate-free shampoos here), has a blend of certified organic botanicals such as peppermint and tea tree oil all for the LOW price of $3.99.
I have used this shampoo on a daily basis for two months now and it is officially going in my beauty product hall of fame. Besides being good for the environment and my health — the results are amazing! My hair has never felt squeaky clean, shiny, soft and manageable. The smell is also invigoratingly delicious!
I can see this shampoo easily being drying for thin or curly hair but on my super straight, horse-like Asian hair it is perfection in a bottle.
