Review: Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Shampoo & Conditioner

I bought my Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Shampoo and Conditioner directly from the local store, which offers a surprising array of shampoos and conditioners for a grocery market.
While researching these products I found the reviews overwhelming positive. I, however, was not blown away.
What I Liked:
- Well priced
As you know, I’m not a fan of expensive hair products. Both the shampoo and conditioner were about three dollars. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase these products from Trader Joe’s online. If you’re not near a store you can find them on sites like Amazon and Ebay, albeit at higher prices.
- Good ingredients
If you’re a label reader, prepare to be impressed. The first ingredients in both products are purified water, organic rosemary oil, organic valencia orange citrus, organic mango, and organic lemongrass. And neither the shampoo nor the conditioner contains laurel/laureth sulfates.
- Creamy conditioner
You won’t find a weak, runny conditioner here. Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa conditioner is thick and creamy yet spreads easily. Many loose naturals rave about the slip and moisture it provides.
What I Didn’t Like:
- Where’s the moisture?
The first thing I expect from a shampoo branded Nourish Spa is, well, nourishment. I didn’t notice anything different with this shampoo and conditioner than with others. And although the conditioner was creamy, it didn’t provide any extra moisture for me. I expected more, especially because of all the fancy ingredients.
- I had to use a lot of product
I’m not sure what it is about the shampoo but it took more than usual for my wash. I realize you don’t generally need as much conditioner as shampoo, but I had to be heavy-handed with the shampoo to see any kind of lather.
These products aren’t a bad combo, they just didn’t live up to my expectations. I think if you’re a loose natural you’ll receive better results. As a dread, I was underwhelmed. For me, Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Shampoo and Conditioner were average performers. My hair didn’t feel stripped afterward, but neither was it noticeably moisturized.
1/2 nappy fros.
