Coconut Shampoo- Dry Hair
A little over a year ago (as far as I can tell) my favorite shampoo in the world was reformulated for reasons unknown to me. Why Desert Essence would want to change the most amazing shampoo into what it is now is unthinkable. It was my number one shampoo that made me stop using any other shampoo. Together with its matching conditioner it was unbeatable for body, shine, and gentle but thorough cleaning. My wavy hair curled even more and had tons of body. One day I went out and bought a new bottle only to find that my hair was dull, lifeless and felt like it had a coating after use. I thought that I had gotten a bad batch so I went out and purchased two or three more from different places but with the same result. I am so disappointed!!! I wrote and called Desert Essence to ask them why they had reformulated it but so far they haven't responded. I have since been trying shampoo after shampoo with no luck in finding anything that works near as good. I am still searching in fact. I can only hope that others will contact Desert Essence and tell them they want the old formula back like I did. Maybe they will listen and the best shampoo will be back on the market again!

We love this shampoo
I buy this shampoo for my daughters and a friend and I use it too. It is our favorite shampoo. It smells good, is easy to use and gets our hair clean and leaves it shining. We use the Dessert Essence conditioner, too. This price is great at Swanson's, much better than I can find locally.

Hair Regime Staple
I love this stuff! Ever since I first used it I keep repurchasing it. It's vegan, cruelty-free, biodegradable, they support wind power, and most importantly it's a great product. This leaves your hair super soft and silky. A little product goes a long way and in my experience my hair thrives on this, it grows long and healthy. When going back to conventional shampoos I can really tell a difference.

Best shampoo EVER!
I did some research online to see what other products were available for my hair and one blog said palm oil works well for hair like mine and is much less expensive. I have very thick, dry, course hair. I thought, what have I got to lose trying this shampoo. I've tried the expensive shampoos such as Ojon etc. This is the best product I've found for the price, it has a nice fragrance as well. I also bought the conditioner to match this and I leave it in my hair and don't wash it out. If you use the conditioner and don't wash it out, start with a small amount to see what your hair can handle without looking greasy. I also bought the red palm oil to use on my straw like hair as well. I just put a little on my finger tips and work into the ends of my hair. Again...excellent product for the price!

Really Like It
I really like the fact that it only takes a little shampoo to sud up and wash your hair. It does a good job cleaning my hair and in combination with the conditioner, my hair feels very silky.

Love this shampoo and the condition also.
I have very dry hair and noticed a big difference after the very first use. My hair was much softer. I ordered some for a friend and they love it too. Also recommended it to another friend. Excellent product and great price.

A pleasure to use!
Previously my scalp was itching. Since using this it has stopped. A small amount lathers up nicely and I like the coconut smell. The ingredients are healthy and I will certainly order again.

Works well for fine hair
My hair is fine, somewhat thick and tends to wave and curl a little; problem has always been the flyaway strands and fluffiness especially in humid weather. I don't like to put the amount of product on my hair that it would require to keep my 'do -- a simple upsweep with butterfly clip, usually -- from doing its own "thing". This shampoo has helped a great deal, and that was a happy surprise.

Works for me...
I have to shower with slightly hard well water, and every other moisturizing shampoo I've tried leaves my hair straw dry. My only gripe is the price, which is a bit high for the quantity you get.
