Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner are the newest products in Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree line. I’ve used Tea Tree products for years and loved it when I discovered this one did not give me that tingly feeling. Some people may like that but it’s not for me. It also has a nice scent to it that is very calming, especially with all the steam in the shower.
The shampoo is appropriately thick for a moisturizing shampoo and it forms a nice lather but its how it rinsed that surprised me a little. My hair didn’t feel very moisturized afterwards, it felt almost stripped which concerned me a little bit given that I’ve recently colored my hair. Even though the shampoo is color safe, it’s not one I will be using on it’s own unless I’m looking for that type of clean. However, what the shampoo lacked the conditioner made up for. It has the same appropriate thickness and detangled my hair immediately. It rinsed out really well without leaving my hair feeling heavy or still saturated with product. This conditioner leaves my hair feeling very soft and manageable. These products did not leave my hair heavily scented either, which I like in this particular shampoo/conditioner combination. I’d like my current favorite perfume to get a chance to “shine” instead of what I used in my hair.
One last thing worth noting is that every purchase of a Paul Mitchell Tea Tree product generates proceeds for America Forests. This a non-profit that ensures trees are planted to offset all carbon emissions from the line’s manufacture and distribution. Not a bad reason to give this a try.
