Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo

Product Description: Shampoo should clean hair.  Really good shampoo should make you tingle from head to toe.  With Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo, invigorating ingredients wash in rejuvenating while washing away the previous day.  You're left with something rich, something clean.  Something incredibly stimulating.... for hair and mind.  Think about it.

Invigorating Shampoo
  • Enriched with certified organic botanicals
  • No animal by-products
  • Cruelty free
  • Increases scalp circulation for a refreshed, renewed feeling
  • Removes all traces of dirt, oil and build-up
  • Alleviates dry, flaking scalp with organic peppermint botanicals
  • Contains no laurel/laureth sulfate
My experience: So, I'm not really a fan of shampoo. Ever since I could remember it would just make my hair feel dry and tangled. I later learned that there were harsh ingredients such as sodium laurel sulfate that dries the hell out of the hair. So now we have all these shampoos that are sulfate free and even though I'm still meh to them and have alternate cleansing methods, I've decided to embark on a journey to find one I may like....

So I picked this shampoo because I heard good things about the Giovanni line and plus,  it was on sale. Also, it has tea tree oil as one of its first 5 ingredients which is good. You see, my scalp flakes and stuff fly out like you won't believe and tea tree oil does wonders for it. When using shampoo, I concentrate on my scalp anyway so I figured it'd be good.

Well, this shampoo really does make my scalp feel clean. As it starts running through my hair though,  my hair immediately started to feel funky so I wouldn't say it's a particularly moisturizing shampoo. It doesn't have a creamy consistency like other shampoos and it sorta looks like Castor oil. It doesn't sud much and it has a faint smell. Another thing I was questioning was what ingredients would it have to effectively clean my hair, and I saw it has Cocamidopropyl Betaine which is a milder and less skin-irritating cleansing agent (read more about it at The Natural Haven).

Overall, it does its  job but doesn't "wow" me, so I'll just finish the bottle and find something new.
