Ugh…so my 49ers didn’t win the Super Bowl this year BUT I am very happy for Ray Lewis! He’s certainly a man of God and testimony on for the power God can have in one’s life so I can’t be mad at that….but Don’t forget, the 49ers are still #2 for the most Superbowl trophies!!!!! Gotta catch up!!! lol it’s col we got next year for sure ;o)
Ok, I am going on my 8th year of being natural and WHYYYYY am I JUST now discovering this hidden gem?!!? Why didn’t anyone tell me about this conditioner?!?!?!?! I feel like my whole life is a lie!!! A LIIIIEEE!!!!!
lol just kidding, but my feelings are kinda hurt, like ya’ll been holding back on me :o( but it’s ok, I guess this is karma coming back to me for THIS and THIS :o( oh well, it’s all out in the open now! No more secrets :o)
This is amazingly the best “cheapie” conditioner I’ve ever used! AND it’s damn near all natural! It’s the Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner with Peppermint and Eucalyptus (sorry i don’t have a hyperlink for it!) from Trader Joe’s! Man, I got this thing for $4 for a big ole16 oz bottle! I know there’s not a Trader Joe’s in every city and you can’t buy from them online but it is sold on Amazon and other online marketplaces. But if it were me, I would hit up your homegirl who lives near one and tell her to get you bout three, fo bottles of this and have her ship them to you! lol
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. Our product contains no laurel/laureth sulfates found in most shampoos and is suitable for all hair types.
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 oil
This is a conditioner is super cheap, super slippery, super natural and super good for your scalp! I was shocked to see the ingredients, I’m like how is it possible to make such an inexpensive product with these ingredients! ***made me do a quick side eye*** lol I bought and have been using it since! (my bottle is already half empty in the pic lol)
I don’t use this for deep conditioning but more for a quick boost of the nutrients…ESPECIALLY on my scalp. I work this really well into my scalp and all those essential oils work wonders (specifically the tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, nettle and thyme) and I LOVE that cool tingly feeling! I also use this when I am rinsing out ayurvedic treatments, the same way I use the Nature’s Gate conditioners (it lathers a bit too!). I use gobs of it and not feel bad about it lol but it really helps dislodge any of the leftover grains from those treatments.
I imagine this would be a really good co-wash because some of the essential oils have cleansing properties. I’ve read that some curlies use it as a leave-in as well. I bet this could be mixed well in a spritzer mix! My hair definitely feels soft and refreshed after using it. Oh and don’t worry, the scent doesn’t linger for too long if you can’t stand the peppermint-iness (I love it though hehe)
This is definitely a great buy and something to keep on hand! Give it a try if you have champagne taste on a beer budget :o)
