I’ve been eyeing this shampoo for a while now. But I chose to wait until I finished using the SheaMoisture Retention Shampoo before I bought it (to curb my inner product junkie). When I went to the store to purchase it – before I could get to the register good enough – I had three people stop me to tell me how good of a product it was. That pretty much validated my decision and I was very eager to use this on my next wash day. Though this product retails for $14.99 online, I was able to purchase it for $9.99 at my local grocery store. TGIN is a Chicago-based company, so their products are more readily available to me. However, they have recently expanded their products to several stores in the New York City area and select Target stores.

I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant about buying this product. Mainly because it contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate which is relatively irritating and as drying as sulfates. However, it’s far down in the ingredient list, making it less irritating and more of a gentle cleanser. I can’t pinpoint what is contributing to the smell of this shampoo, but it smells sweet and not overpowering. Upon using the shampoo, my hair felt so soft and moisturized. I’ve never experienced that with a shampoo. Plus, it contained a lot of slip, which is something I don’t expect from shampoo. My hair was cleansed thoroughly, not stripped. I will definitely purchase this product again! Check out my review of the tgin® Honey Miracle Mask.

    Out of TGIN and Shea Moisture Raw Shea Retention shampoos, which would you recommend and liked more? I see that you tried both and wanted to hear what you think. I mentioned in another question to you that I am transitioning from major heat damage. My hair (even my new growth) is dry and brittle no matter what I do. I can’t cowash so do you think the shampoo you recommend is fine for weekly use? Also, if I shampoo weekly, would I still need to clarify? If so, what are your thoughts on Giovanni 50/50 Clarifying shampoo? There is a new formula and it doesn’t have Sodium C14-16 as before.

    Thank you.

      Hi Seidi. The Shea Moisture Shampoo and TGIN Shampoo are both great. The TGIN Shampoo has a bit more slip and is perfectly fine to use in a weekly regimen. I haven’t used the Giovanni 50/50 Shampoo before, so I really can’t give any input on it. For your new growth, I would suggest applying deep conditioner in sections from root to tip. This will help to soften the new growth. Hope that this helps!
