[Review] Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
How ironic is it that in my minimalist regimen; I actually wash my hair more often? I wash my hair twice a week; a mid-week co-wash then a few days later I deep condition. I've been using Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner to co-wash for about a year now and I'm madly in love with it. Here's why:
SLIPPAGE. This conditioner has some of the best slip of any conditioner that I've ever used (especially for it's stupid cheap price) First, I mist my hair with my DIY Moisturizer just to dampen my curls, then I apply this conditioner and my tangles completely disappear.
MOISTURIZING. Don't you hate it when a conditioner just sits on top of your strands refusing to soak in? Well you won't have that issue with this conditioner! It absorbs into my hair leaving my curls super soft and moisturized. I can't say that it could replace my deep conditioner by any means, but it's great for keeping my curls from getting dried out.
VERSATILE. I've used this conditioner as a pre-shampoo treatment, co-wash, and leave in conditioner. Because of the (mostly) organic ingredients, I'm not afraid to that it will dry my hair out or make my curls frizzy.
STIMULATING. The tea tree + peppermint + eucalyptus essential oil combination makes my scalp giddy. Yes...I'm oh so serious! The tingly refreshing sensation keeps my scalp from rioting from all of my sweaty workouts.

The only downside of this conditioner is that it's exclusive to Trader Joe's stores. Which means that if you're not within a few miles of a Trader Joe's location then you'd have to grab it from Amazon.com (where it's more pricey)
