Trader Joe's Nourish spa
So I've searched high and low, tried it all from store bought, designer to 'all natural' handmade conditioners - all of which have left my hair somewhat ok. I went shopping last week at Trader Joe's and found myself in the beauty aisle looking for a new facial wash ; somehow the Nourish Spa conditioner caught my eye. My friend E mentioned she used it but never really sold it to me - I thought hmm $2.99 doesn't really break the bank - worst case I'll add my herbs and oils if it does not work.
Got home that evening and was all giddy about my new find - I shampooed me hair, then followed with an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse , braided my hair into small sections and applied the conditioner (I added a wee bit of olive and grapeseed oil). OMG!!! I have to say the difference was clear - it was like magic - normally conditioners take a while to work in my hair - but I as soon as I applied it my hair felt incredibly moisturized and soft - detangling was super easy - I was overjoyed. I was instantly sold on it.
After applying I wrapped my head in cling film and sat under a hooded dryer for circa 30mins - HEAVEN!! my hair felt so good, so soft, so moisturizer, like butter - I think I've finally found my base conditioner - I say base because I always add something to the mix; usually essential oils, herbs, honey etc.
So the conditioner is dirt cheap, it works great, it has organic ingredients all good eh - so what's the catch? well I don't think there is one but it contains ......err PARABENS - Methylparaben and Propylparaben to be exact..I initially did not want to purchase but thought to I gave it a shot especially since the parabens are listed right at the end- I'm not an expert in a shape or form - parabens are harmful but the listing order shows it contains very little, almost insignificant amounts. As for me I think it is ok - please make that decision yourself. It's definitely a keeper for me.
