The Healthy Product Craze

tea tree 6 My girlfriend popped over to my house ranting and raving about this new product she tried. You
see my friend had the best job. She worked for a holistic company that sold everything from
Aloe Vera to the latest in Vitamin supplements – and the best thing about it she was the gunny
pig! Her official title was Product Tester. When she first got the job, I was like “so let me get this
straight, they give you all the latest and newest in health products to try, you try them and then
get to blog about them, is that right?”. She was like “Yep and you get to try them too!”. We hi
fived like we were in junior school and danced around my bedroom waiting to try all these
goodies out.

So basically we are a few months in and now her bedroom and my bedroom likes like some
teenagers bedroom that couldn’t be bothered to clean up yet instead of it being filled with
magazines and left-overs, it’s now filled up with Vitamins, organic creams, make-up, shampoos,
conditioners, body-butters, Aloe Vera this, Aloe Vera that – you name it. Kelly ran into my room
and told me to try this. She held up a bottle of Maple Holistics Tea Tree oil Shampoo and said
“get a load of this girl”. She said it was amazing, that it made her head tingle and was one of the
best products she had ever tried. She was literally ranting and raving about it telling me I had to
try it and that she had an extra bottle for me! I was so excited. I had just finished the bottle of
Sage Shampoo she had recently left me with and that was pretty great so if this was even better
then, I was getting myself into that shower the minute she left!tea-tree-oil 1
Kelly said she had been trying it for a week now and that she was excited to get into the shower
just so she could use it! I was like “ok girl, its just shampoo!”… But she was like “no Jess, you
know when you run out the house with wet hair its windy and you get a whiff of your shampoo
and it smells so fresh”, I was like “yeah ok in some T.V commercial” – in which she then punched
my slightly on my arm, “ I was like yeah ok”… she said “well this Shampoo is like that but its
better, it makes your hair all tingly and it just feels really really clean and you get that whole
whiff in the wind kind of feeling”. So after I slightly vomited from her Hallmark description, I was
like ok I am gonna give this a try and see if its everything it’s cracked up to be!
So here I am, Tea Tree Shampoo in one hand and shower handle in the other. I am ready to take
on this baby and see if it’s the best Shampoo I’ve ever tried!

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shaping Cream

tea tree 4I am digging Australia big time. First off, I recently started dating this amazing girl from Sydney. Second, I have discovered tea tree essential oil. These are two amazing discoveries. I love them both, but in very different ways.

Paul Mitchell has a whole range of products with tea tree in them. Tea tree essential oil is one of the best things to ever happen to my shower routine, and I cannot get enough of this thing. I use it as a standalone to fight nits and dandruff. I use it heal cuts I get when I work (I lug equipment for a sound and lighting company, and that means my skin gets hurt sometimes). I use it to make my beard smell awesome, along with some olive oil and peppermint.

So, Paul Mitchell. Obviously I had heard of him and his stuff before, butfor some weird reason I never used his tea tree stuff. These are products that I shoulda coulda woulda been using years ago, I feel. But oh well, all good things come to those who wait, and who take risks. Those are the words that complete that adage, by the way. Who dares wins, right?

Okay, so a shaping cream was recently acquired by yours truly, and I am loving it. This tea tree shaping cream was reviewed by Maple Holisitics. The guys at that site gave it a good, balanced review. They took things into account – price effectiveness, etc. – and they said to go for it. I tend to agree with them.

Now, what does it do? Well, it gives you a nice finish for times when you are on the go. This is what I use it for. If I want to leave my house and know that I look good – I use it. It helps the hairtea tree 5 stick and stay in the position I want, and that is important to me sometimes. I carry all kinds of gear, and I don’t want to have to constantly mess with my hair. It is a styling cream that doesn’t feel like a styling cream. I mean it feels good going on and coming off.

There are a few downsides. It doesn’t last as long as I would like. I mean, maybe I am exspecting too much, because it is relatively expensive. But I don’t feel I am. If I am able to wait and get it for a cheaper price, I think I will. Another thing is that you have to use a really small amount, otherwise it does feel like an oldschool styling gel and I don’t like that at all. I don’t like the greasiness, and I don’t like the whole process. One of the things that review said, by the way, is that it is not as effective with longer hair. I mean, I tend to agree, but it works for me, and I am happy with my choice. Maybe I am an exception. Not sure.
