Pros: a very nice citrus shampoo with lots of good herbal extracts.
Cons: nothing for me.
I picked up a bottle of this Citrus Shampoo when I was in Trader Joe's about a month ago. I go to Trader Joe's quite often, usually every week, and I like finding products there that I haven't noticed before.
Trader Joe's Refresh Citrus Shampoo is a simple shampoo it gets the job done: it cleans your hair. It's not super fancy or frilly in any way. It does what it is supposed to do and at a price that is quite reasonable.
This shampoo is an amber color. It is recommended that you simply use about a teaspoon, which is the amount I use because my hair is currently long. This is more than enough to do the job of washing my hair and scalp well.
The scent is pleasant too and does remind me of citrus. It smells fresh, and reminds me of oranges and lemons. It is also the color of lemonade.
Aromatherapy became popular some years ago because certain aromas were thought to be rejuvenating to your mind and health. This shampoo is an aroma-therpeutic shampoo. I found it interesting that they have included chamomile, ginseng, ginger, comfrey, lemon grass and sage in their ingredients along with many vitamins to help cleanse and nourish your scalp and hair. I especially enjoy the scent of lemon grass. The kinds of herbal extracts that are included in Trader Joe's Refresh Citrus Shampoo are known to be particularly comforting and soothing to the body and the mind.
My hair is left feeling clean and styling it is easy. It doesn't leave my hair feeling limp or frizzy, even though I wash it just about every single day. This is a mild shampoo that I find refreshing in it's citrus simplicity. It also will not break your wallet. Shampoos at Trader Joe's are usually about $2.00 for a 16 fluid ounce bottle. What a deal!
