I'm about to raid TJ's...

I admit it, I'm certifiable (a PJ, that is :P). I never have much time to shop though, and I do most of it on a hit-and-run basis. I was gonna swing by Trader Joe's to restock Nourish and I thought I ask the 3c's what other TJ products they're liking for their hair. Poo's, condish, oils or whatever -- tell me about it and help me beef up my shopping list. ;)

    The TJ brand Soy Milk conditioner is excellent if you like a moisturizing, detangling conditioner with good ingredients for cheap... :D

    Have fun!

    I've seen you mention this elsewhere in the forum, so it's already on the list. ;)
    Is it new and is there a poo as well?

    Cool! :D I don't think there is a shampoo. The TJ Nourish and Refresh lines both have conditioner and shampoo. I have the Refresh conditioner, which is supposed to be lighter than Nourish - but I have yet to try it. I don't really buy shampoo that much. My ratio of conditioner to shampoo is like 25 to 1 8)

    Let me know how you like all your goodies. I would recommend more but I am fairly new to trying TJ hair products..

    The have jojoba oil there in the beauty section, and lots of others in the cooking section. I go through jojoba like crazy, I mix it with my gel and also use it on my face for the OCM.

    I'm having one of those days ladies... I SWEAR I just posted a lengthy reply, but I must have closed my browser without hitting submit <sigh>. Lemme try this again:


    Curltopia, I finally went, but I must live in the wrong part of the country. My TJ's doesn't have the Soy Milk :( (hadn't heard of it).

    Rainyday, I picked up the DE Jojoba (my daughter's hair loves this oil!). I was hoping they would have Coconut, but they didn't. You're right though, large selection of oils in the cooking section. :)

    As far as the TJ's products I've tried, here's my review so far:

    * TJ's Nourish Spa Shampoo - Even though it has a gentler sulfate than Giovanni's, it still left our hair feeling stripped. My daughter's hair was a tangled mess. :(

    **** TJ's Nourish Spa Conditioner - Saved us from a hair disaster. Was particularly moisturizing on my daughter. Especially nice with a few drops of honey added (per rainyday, thx!)

    ** TJ's Refresh Citrus Conditioner - Used this on my daughter only since her hair LOVES fruit extracts. However, this one seemed to zap the moisture right out. The longer we left it on, the drier and harder her hair became. Not sure exactly what ingredient was to blame, but surprised me since it also has jojoba, a really good oil for her. Could have been a PH thing. Not giving it a complete thumbs down, as it may be a good clarifier for another hair type.

    Enrica-

    THANKS for the reviews !!!!!!! I was never tempted by the shampoo, so will definitely pass. I have the Refresh conditioner, so will test it and add my review to this thread :D And the Nourish has caught my eye for a while now, so I will try to pick it up soon.....
