Moo hasn’t done a review in a while, because she has been focusing on her YouTube career…kidding, she doesn’t have a channel, but she makes the videos and I pretend they go somewhere other than the ‘recently deleted’ folder. Since I can’t sneak a bath or shower in without her jumping in with me every time, she shares a lot of bath/shower and even hair care products with me. So I decided to get her this certified organic tea tree shampoo from SOiL’s Treemendus range to review.
So let’s start with the bottle. What do you think of it?
I like it ‘cos it has pink on it.
Did you like using this shampoo?
Yes. It smells like mints and I love mints, those mints from the Spur. But it tastes disgusting though.
You’re not supposed to eat it. It’s just for washing your hair with.
I know I’m not allowed to eat shampoo but it smelled so yummy I just had to taste some. But it was very gross.
What else did you like?
It doesn’t make hundreds of foam that goes in my eyes.
Maybe that’s because it is SLS free.
It’s the stuff that makes things foamy, but it isn’t so good for your hair or your skin.
Did you know it has tea tree oil in it?
No. That’s weird to put tea on your hair. It also doesn’t taste at all like tea. I like rooibos but it doesn’t taste nice like rooibos at all.
It isn’t tea. It’s oil from a tea tree. It makes things better, like if you have a problem with your skin or your head is itchy.
Oh. Well it doesn’t taste yummy.
Well now you’ve learned your lesson about not to eat shampoo. Serves you right.
So in summary, if you’re looking for a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo which deep cleanses, smells amazing, and you don’t intend to eat it, then this is worth trying! It has such an invigorating scent which will appeal to men, women and children (it contains tea tree, peppermint, neem and rosemary). I have borrowed it and really enjoyed it, but it does need a very rich conditioner afterwards if your hair is dry/damaged like mine. I think for me it will make a good weekly shampoo for clarifying and getting rid of build-up. For slightly oilier to normal hair, it would be a great everyday shampoo, and likewise for anyone suffering from scalp conditions. It costs R65 and is available on the SOiL online store or various stockists.
