Beauty Review: Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo

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.

  1. Did you ever try the Paul Mitchell tea tree line? It’s good stuff…gotta love the tingle!

  2. Hahaha horse-like hair. Trader Joe’s is my god! I love that place so much — can you only imagine a full sized Trader Joe’s????? You’ve already turned me on to the Panko Crusted Tilapia (dinner tonight!), and now I will have to get this tea tree shampoo as well!

    @Feisty Fatale – For a real money meal, I like to make a salsa out of the frozen roasted corn and heirloom cherry tomatoes and serve it on top of the tilapia! Or you can try making fish tacos with them.
