    What's your hair type, out of curiosity? I tried it because of all the rave reviews and it didn't do a darn thing for me :( And I love TJ's shampoos, I use them to low poo. (I know they have a sulfonate in them, at least the Refresh I use does, I'm going to phase it out of my routine when I find something I like better, but I haven't found anything to replace it yet. Refresh is a great low poo and its very mild on my hair.)
    Iposted my bottle of Nourish on the swap board, but don't have any takers. If no one wants it, i may try using it as a cowash. I've been using Nature's Gate, which is very light and a good cowash for me right now, but I hate to waste the Nourish.
    You're right, at $3 a bottle its a real bargain!! I think it's just too light for my hair type. I am loving Yes to Cucumbers though.
    That's me with FSG as my styler!!

    3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

    Currently using:
    Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
    RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
    Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB

    really? I love it, it's so moisturizing and makes my hair really soft. I have normal texture, normal porosity and my hair is thick. I use it as a rinse out and I may try it mixed with a few other things as a deep conditioner. I tried the TJ tea tree tingle shampoo and conditioner and it was ok for me, nothing to brag about. I've never tried the yes to cucumbers....

    Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle has no sulfates!! This is what I use. I love it. Cleanses without all the sulfates. It really does make the scalp tingle too. The price is just a bonus!

    I never tried the cucumbers shampoo, so maybe I will give it a try. I would like to find another low poo to rotate with my TJTT. I do have the condish, but not enough moisture for me. I always need to follow up with Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing.

    Sadly, Bubbs is right. TJ's shampoos contain C12-14 Olefin Sulfonate. Below is a link to a list of surfactants and you will see that this one is in the "very harsh" category.

    She and I were both bummed!! I was actually angry since TECHNICALLY they have no sulfates, so that is on the bottle, but it should state that it still contains a very harsh surfactant.

    Agh and here I was thinking that TJTTT was okay to use. :( It does wonders for my scalp issues, but it does make my hair feel a bit icky and dry now that I think about it.

    Anywho, back on topic . . . yes I use the Nourish conditioner, it made my hair crunchy for some reason. But it did work better as a deep conditioner when I mixed it with EVOO and Darcy's Botanicals Vanilla Delight Conditioner

    My Tj's Tea Tree Poo doesn't have this listed?? I'm totally confused.

    Is yes to cucumber's (shampoo) technically a no poo or does it have harsh chemicals in it? I'm totally bummed now...:(

    Steff,

    The Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo has the Olefin Sulfonate in it. It's near the end of the content list and says it's coconut derived. The write up on the bottle says it's free of laurel/laureth sulfates and while that's correct, it may confuse folks into believing there are no surfactants whatsoever in the product.

    On the upside, the Olefin Sulfonate is far down on the ingredient list so there's less of it than say if it was one of the first 4 ingredients. I can't use KK's Come Clean because the OS is high on the list.

    Back to topic...

    I wish I had picked up a bottle of the Nourish condish while I had a chance. The nearest TJ store is a five hour drive away. :sad:
    Med-fine texture, med/high porosity. BC 9/22/11. Hard H2O
