Welcome to our Battle Royale Series, where we put two products in the same category head to head and rate them based on the following criteria: Price, product size, availability, and product claims. Of course these ratings are based on personal experience and opinions. There are so many brands on the market that cater to women with natural hair that it can easily become overwhelming to walk into a local Target, Walgreens, or beauty supply store. Let’s make your next shopping trip a little bit easier with our printable product #cheatsheet.
Starting the series off, drum roll please….
The Battle of Shampoo ft: Shea Moistures JBCO Strengthen, Grow, & Restore shampoo vs. Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo
Price: $10.99 vs $3.99
Product Size: 16oz vs 16oz
Availability: Target, Walgreens, CVS, online retailers
Trader joes and online retailers
You may have read our review of the JBCO line here.
We know $10.99 is substantially more than the $3.99 price tag of the Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle. But hear me out, this product is hands down the best shampoo on the market. It surpasses all others, I know that’s a huge claim and proclamation. Believe me when I say, the claims of shine and strength are not a falsehood. If you’re looking to retain or add moisture back to your hair, the JBCO is def your guy. I’ve used this shampoo in my last two washes, and a little goes a long way and my hair felt clean but not stripped of all it’s moisture. Hair is visibly shinier and softer after just one use.
Trader joes TTT (tea tree tingle) is a gem; its price per oz alone makes it a steal. Filled with natural ingredients such and tea tree oil and peppermint; ingredients which help to alleviate itchy scalp and to clarify the scalp in general. This sulfate free shampoo will leave your hair feeling clean, to make sure moisture is not lost, a pre poo may be necessary. My hair and scalp always feel fresh and clean after washing with this natural favorite.
