Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo & 50:50 Balanced Conditioner

Included in the Naturisimo travel essentials discovery box I bought last month, were some mini (60ml) haircare products from Giovanni. I already use and love Giovanni's 2Chic Flat Iron Heat Protection Styling Mist, so I was eager to try more of their products.
About the brand:
Giovanni was developed by Arthur Guidotti in 1978, who had his own hair salon and with time, his hands started to react badly to the many haircare products he used, so he decided to create his own! Giovanni created a huge portfolio of high-performing, salon-chic, cruelty-free products which were also natural and safe. All products are manufactured in the US, most of which are vegan. The products are free from the usual harsh chemicals, such as SLS, parabens, and phthalates.
Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo, £7.99/250ml and Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Conditioner, £7.99/250ml

The shampoo is not something I would have chosen for myself, as although I love mint-scented products, I prefer not to use them on my scalp. This shampoo has a predominantly mint scent and a gel-like consistency. I felt it was a little difficult to distribute evenly throughout my hair without using extra product. The menthol and tea tree give a tingling sensation to the scalp, which I'm not completely comfortable with; this also transferred to the back of my neck and top of my back, where my hair was sitting, but I was left with no visible skin irritation. I do feel like this shampoo gave a really deep cleanse and reduced the dryness on my scalp. I wouldn't re-purchase this product.

The conditioner, on the other hand, is something I am more likely to have picked up myself to try. It has a pleasant botanical scent and a thick cream consistency. Only a small amount of product is needed. This conditioner left my hair lovely and soft, and deeply conditioned. I would love to try the full-size versions of both the shampoo and conditioner from the 50/50 range!

  1. I'm currently on a hair care drive, so I loved reading this! Lucy Rose has lots of mini 60ml bottles of Giovanni shampoo/conditioner so I might try the 50-50 ones soon. :) x

    1. Sounds like a great opportunity to try out some new products! I'd love to know what you think of the 50/50 range if you try it. I'd also recommend Faith In Nature's coconut range. xxx
