This shampoo smells amazing and definitely gets my scalp tingling! It doesn't clean quite as well as other shampoos (I usually do 2 rounds of scrubbing), but it's worth it for the more natural ingredients. The ridiculously cheap price tag definitely makes this shampoo worth a try.

I love love love this product. This is my holy grail shampoo during the summer. I used to use Giovanni's Tea Tree Tingle, but I use this instead. I have oily hair that is coarse and prone to dryness and tangling at the ends. In the summertime, my scalp decides to get oilier (ew, I know), so I have to shampoo daily no matter what. I love that fact that this is gentle enough for daily use for my coarse, tangle-prone hair while banishing the oily scalp while soothing my easily irritated scalp at the same time. I also love the tingle. It makes me feel extra clean during hot, sticky, gross weather and I appreciate that.
TIP: When my hair gets out of control oily, I mix a bit of baking soda with this shampoo. It's not something to do very often (it can dry out your hair), but in the summer when my scalp gets super oily- I mix a bit of baking soda with the shampoo in my palm (and focus applying the mix to the roots of the hair, not the ends). Definitely don't do this more than once a week unless you have ultra oily scalp and short hair. Personally, I only do this once a month at the most, and only in summer. This also seems to get rid of any styling product buildup as well.

This shampoo turned my teen daughter's blonde hair brassy, almost orange! And it made it frizzy. It did nothing to help with how oily her hair gets either. A true disappointment! I will be returning both the shampoo and conditioner.

At the time of this review, my shampoo of choice is Shea Moisture's Yucca & Baobab Shampoo. I love how moisturizing it is! But I sometimes have those greasy-scalp, gross-hair days when I need a more clarifying shampoo ...
My brother uses Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Special Shampoo, so I've been swiping a little for myself on those occasions. It does the trick, but I'm concerned that it contains both sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate. I wanted to find a more natural product that would still give my hair the deep cleanse it sometimes needs.
I then came across the Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo on here. There happens to be a Trader Joe's right near my house, and they had one bottle left on the shelf! It's very fairly priced ($3.99 for 16 oz.), so I figured it was worth a try.
And boy, am I glad I tried this! It lathers decently, has a pleasant minty smell, and - true to its name - it does tingle. And it's full of natural ingredients, which is always a plus. It does tend to leave the hair with a bit of a squeaky-clean feeling, so I just concentrate the product on my roots and follow up with a deep conditioner.
Voilą! Zero flakes and zero dryness - just a refreshed, clean scalp. Highly recommend! :)

A good simple shampoo with no-nonsense ingredients. I love that this product is not only good for my hair, but also very cheap. Cleans hair well without drying it out. Love the way this tingles on the scalp. Has a nice minty smell. Provides excellent slip for my 3b curls. It also did wonders for my dandruff. I highly recommend this if you are in the market for a new shampoo.

I've been using Giovanni's Tea Tree Triple Threat shampoo for several months now. I bought TJ's Tea Tree shampoo as a cheaper alternative. I can see and feel a difference between the two. TJ's doesn't lather up as well and I have to use more product. I also find it not to be as cleansing as Giovanni's. I have really oily hair and my hair is kinda oily by the end of the day. I would have to wash my hair daily when I use TJ's tea tree shampoo, where as I can go every other day with Giovanni's. I do find TJ's shampoo to be more moisturizing. However I find myself to need to use a deep cleansing shampoo by the end of the week if I use TJ's regularly.
I would buy Trader Joe's tea tree shampoo again because of the price and it's natural and organic.

This is the BEST shampoo I have ever used! And only $4 for 16 ounces? My hair has never been this nice. I have curly hair which was always frizzy. I used an anti-frizz cream which I no longer need! The strange thing is that I haven't used the conditioner yet because I still have my old one left, which has sulfates. In addition to the fact that it's sulfate free, there is no (drying) alcohol in this shampoo. It's full of oils, which are very moisturizing.
I've used L'oreal's sulfate and silicone free shampoo and condition and never saw these results. In fact, there was no difference at all so I went back to my old products.
But I will now be a devout consumer of Trader Joe's shampoos and conditioners.

LOVE this Shampoo! I bought it because my daughter had lice. I ran out of Shampoo and after I used it I feel in love <3
I have dry, fine and Frizzy Hair. I will always have it and it's something I have to deal with BUT~ I find that it;s not even as bad with this shampoo.
I have been a product whore since I was 14. This shampoo and conditioner are great products and are great value and my hair like it.

My HG, now that I've let all my color grow out and I'm using it on virgin hair again. Love the scent especially, and the product gets the job done. I've repurchased more times than I can count, and as a bonus, my husband loves it too! I don't have the oil problem others have mentioned, though I do tend to use a deep conditioner/regular conditioner combo afterwards. Without this, I wouldn't be happy with the slip I get after.

I like the tingle this shampoo gives, even when I use it diluted with water! Like other said, I also notice a bit of frizz after drying my hair but I manage it applying a dot of TJ's coconut body butter to my hair when I am finished drying them. I use this shampoo together with the matching conditioner and though they are not perfect, I like that they are natural and they are not stripping my hair color.

This Trader Joes shampoo is better than Kiehls tea tree shampoo because of the ingredient listed. The minty tingle is not overwhelming and doesnt last anyway so I dont need to worry about smelling like candy canes or altoids. I like that its scalp friendly because I wash my head daily to get rid of scalp head smell and flat straight thin zero volume hair syndrome. After using this for a month this shampoo hasnt dried out my scalp or hair. For reference I have used in the past: Kiehls, Aveda, EO organics, head and shoulders, neutrogena, LOreal, Garnier, HerbalEssence, Natures Gate and Avalon organic. It doesnt lather much because it doesnt have the lathering chemicals which you dont want on your scalp ! Please do not stop providing this Trader Joes ! I gave four stars for price because this is not a cheap shampoo when you honestly compare this to general shampoos you can find at Target. Not the same product but still this isnt a huge bottle so make a bigger bottle ! hint hint !

The price and ingredients list blew me out of the water. I got the shampoo and conditioner for under $10. Upon first use, the smell was great and refreshing. Peppermint just awakes your senses in the morning, you know! The only issue I had with the shampoo is that it didn't lather as I'd like it to, but that is only because of the super lathery shampoos that I was used to, which contained a lot of unnecessary ingredients. I'm sticking with this shampoo, even if I have to use a little extra shampoo to wash my hair. It's worth it! The conditioner is just spectacular. I have noticed a significant difference in my hair. It is much more shiny, soft, and manageable.

I love the way this product smells. The price is great. The ingredient list is great. But this shampoo did NOT perform. After a week of daily use my hair is a greasy mess. I don't consider my hair to be exceptionally oily, but after washing my hair, it feels like I didn't wash it at all. I live in an apartment with hard water which may contribute to the problem. Won't be buying again. Won't even be finishing the bottle.

At first I found this shampoo hard to spread, a problem to lather, and a little on the drying side... Then after a little online research on homemade shampoos (yes, I was getting a bit desperate) I found a recipe for adding coconut milk and oil to baby shampoo. I hate baby shampoo myself, so I thought I would try it on this, after all what could it hurt?
The coconut milk with this was amazing! It fixed every problem I had with this shampoo. It didn't just lather... it straight up foamed in my hair. Because of the lather, I was able to use much less, which I believed helped a great deal with the drying nature of the original shampoo. I went with a half and half ratio, and added a couple drops of my favorite oil.
It cleaned my hair very well, and the coconut milk smelled good with the tea tree oil in the shampoo. It does get rather thin however, so putting it in a recycled squirt bottle would make for easier application.
The original score for this would be a 2, with coconut milk, a 4, so I averaged the two together for the 3.
I stopped using all products that contain dimethicone, and got a filter for my shower head. I have no idea which of the two did the trick, but now I can use the shampoo without the coconut milk. It lathers wonderfully all by it's lonesome. I use it about 2-3 times a week, and co-wash on the days in between. I officially have to up the score to four stars.

Great clarifying shampoo if that's what I need, and also a great brush cleaner for makeup brushes.

VERY drying and gives my hair A LOT of frizz....disappointed with this. the only thing it does is makes my scalp feel clean and non-itchy.

This stuff is actually pretty awesome. I share a bathroom/shower with 3 other girls - stepsisters and little sister, so there's always a lot of different stuff in our shower to test if you can get away with it with out the others noticing haha! Well, usually I stick to my own shampoo/conditioner simply because I do not like using sulfates on my hair and usually the girls' shampoos do contain sulfates. But this is a recent addition to the shower so I checked the ingredients yesterday, was HIGHLY impressed by the list- so many good ingredients and no SLS! So I decided to give it a go. Well, it's lovely. My hair felt clean, and the scent is very refreshing. I would actually purchase this when I run out of my far pricier giant bottle of bedhead epic volume.

I wanted so badly to love this product. I love the scent, the price point, and the ingredients list. Unfortunately this simply didn't perform at cleaning my hair. As others have mentioned, it really does not cut through oil well, even moreso than other paraben free products I've tried. It's really too bad because the conditioner works just great.
If you're the type that can go four days without washing your hair and don't tend to get an oily scalp, this may be worth checking it. But if you have an oily scalp and need a decently strong shampoo, this is probably not for you.

This shampoo smells nice and it's definitely tingly, as advertised. I bought it to help with my dandruff, and it did a good job. I definitely have fewer flakes and less itching. I love the smell, I love that it's cheap, and I love that it contains more natural ingredients than most shampoos. However, I have to use this as a supplement and not my primary shampoo because I find it doesn't really cut through oil that well, and I have really oily hair. So, I usually use something like Pantene first, and then follow up with the tea tree shampoo. Other uses might appreciate that this shampoo isn't as stripping because it won't damage or dry out your hair, but since my hair tends to build up oil and a kind of waxy residue I have to use a more stripping shampoo on a regular basis.

Bought this at Trader Joe's for $3.99. It's got a nice ingredient list without a ton of chemicals. Lots of essential oils. Oddly enough, I don't feel a tingle when I use this. I use this in combination with the conditioner and my hair starts to look a little frizzy while drying, but is easily fixed with a bit of oil (I use argan). My hair looks pretty good and I wash every other day. I'm not sure if I'll be running to the store after I use this up, but it's a good shampoo and I would be happy to buy it again.
