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.

I love the fragrance of this shampoo, its like a mini vacation to Fiji every time I wash my hair. Its lather is rich and creamy and makes my hair very soft . If you like coconut scent you will love this shampoo.

This makes me feel good using it! The smell is wonderful, the texture is silky and my hair feels better than it has in a long time! Going to get the conditioner next!

I love this shampoo. It takes such a little bit and I know that I am not getting all those chemicals that I would in other shampoos. My husband and I both use it.

Shampoo that really cleans!
This shampoo is great i like that my hair feels clean after i rinse it out and it works really good with my thin hair. I use the Desert essence coconut conditioner as well and my hair is shiny, super soft, and looks healthier!!

I have dry & graying hair. I bought this with the conditioner and felt that using both of them daily left my hair a bit matted down. Using the shampoo alone did not do this so it must be the conditioner doing that. Both products are thick. A little lathers up well, which is unusual for a natural product..makes me wonder about the coconut lathering agent whether it's good for you or not. Usually truly natural products don't lather up this much, the cheap chemical ones do.

Great lather with just a small amount. I use with the conditioner. It leaves my coarse hair very soft, shiny and easy to manage. The shampoo and conditioner last the same amount of time for me which is wonderful. Please continue to carry these great products!

I cannot say enough about the moisturizing power of this shampoo. My dry, unruly curls responded like magic after the first shampoo! Highly recommended!!

I LOVE this shampoo! It has an amazing smell, rich lather, and feels more like a spa for my hair than just a shampoo. I have tried other "sulfate" free shampoos that left my hair like straw. This shampoo and its coordinating conditioner leaves my hair feeling silky and nourished. I even use it as a bodywash. Yes, it has a coconut-derived sulfate halfway down the ingredient list, but is sodium laurel/laureth sulfate-free. My hair has never felt better, and I like that it has so many organic extracts in it. It may be too conditioning for oily hair, but if you have normal to dry or overprocessed hair, you must try this shampoo! Thank you Desert Essence and Swanson! Please do not ever change it or discontinue!

LOVE this shampoo!
I wanted a "sulfate" free shampoo and after two other shampoos found this one. I am so glad I did!! It smells like a coconut/pineapple smoothie but better yet, made my hair feel so full and gently cleansed. Other "sulfate" free shampoos have left my hair like straw after two uses. Two people commented on how full my hair looked after I used it! Yes, it does have a coconut-derived sulfate in it (halfway down the ingredients list) but this shampoo is amazing. Probably too rich for oily hair, but as far as I am concerned, this shampoo has made me look forward to washing my hair! Good job Desert Essence and Swanson! Please keep stocking this!

Unfortunately, this shampoo did not work for my dry naturally curly hair. The curls became very stiff after using this shampoo. But not a complete loss....I LOVE it as a shower/shave gel!!!! Lathers up really well and smells amazing!!!!

Not Impressed-Won't Purchase Again
Okay, this shampoo is all natural. It has nothing to awful or nasty in it. But, the cap broke in shipment and is very flimsy. The entire time I've had it I've been fighting with the cap. It fills up with cold, slimy water while you are showering. Poor design. The smell is heavenly, if you like a strong coconut smell--and you had better like the scent as if you get caught in the rain, or get even slightly warm, the scent really pours forth and I've had people tell me my hair scent makes them hungry. It didn't clean well. It left my hair looking like I needed to shampoo again. My hair hasn't look like that since I was a teen, many years ago. Overall I'm pretty disappointed with it as I'd hoped it would be a more healthy shampoo I could use regularly.

NOT sulfate free
This shampoo claims to have no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in it BUT-
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate = Sodium Coco Sulfate - just google it. "The difference between SLS and Sodium Coco sulfate is no greater than the difference between purified water and unpurified water"
No wonder this lathers up so much. It dried my hair out after a while.

I have very fine hair that was extremely dried out and damaged from perms over the years. I tried many different shampoos and conditioners but nothing really restored my hair to a healthy state. I finally tried this one, with the matching conditioner, and was totally amazed at the results after the very first usage. I have used it a few times now and my hair is so soft and silky feeling and has a lovely shine to it (which I have not seen for several years). The shampoo lathers really well and only a small amount is needed for a squeeky clean wash. It goes a long way. I highly recommend this product for anyone with very dry, brittle, frizzy and damaged hair. It has restored my hair to a very healthy state where other products have failed me. I will definitely be a continued user.

Best Natural Shampoo Ever
I love this shampoo, my hair has been dry from foils and GHD, and this shampoo is lovely, it nourishes and keeps getting better. At first I was not sure but after every shampoo and condition use, the hair has come back to life with shine and feels great. I like the smell and thickness of this product. I am going to use this product always.

I am quite happy with Desert Essence shampoo and conditioner. Very little shampoo is needed and it really lathers up nice. My hair is softer and shiny since using. The coconut fragrance is natural from the coconut oil, not too strong after the rinse and I have not noticed an odor of coconut hanging around after shampooing. I use more conditioner than shampoo, but actually like the shampoo a bit better.

This is a great product. This product has a rich lather and leaves your hair feeling squeeky clean without stripping the hair of its moisture. I have notice a difference in the way my hair feels after only applying a small amount of shampoo. A little bit goes a long way, so you do not run out quickly.

I have thin dry hair, which I color. As soon as I lathered with this shampoo my hair felt silky...conditioned...even before using a conditioner. Didn't weight my fine hair down at all, looks and feels great!

I have used many different hair products for my thick, long, dry, damaged, curly hair. My mother is a cosmetologist, so I have tried even salon products, high, and low end shampoos and conditioners.However, all products either left my hair dry or overly moisturized to the point it was almost greasy looking. I decided to try this after reading the review, and after one use today, I will be a Desert Essence Shampoo, Conditioner buyer for life! I was surprised at the small amount I needed to use as with other products I have had to use most of the bottle. As I was washing my hair it got this amazing texture of what hair should feel like, clean, strong, light, and soft. It felt like my hair had a layer of filth washed right off! When I got out of the shower I put my hair in a towel and when I pulled off the towel I was in awe! My hair looked so beautiful and had such a beautiful curl to it that I have never seen!.... If my hair looks this good after one use, I cannot wait to see the results after a couple of weeks! Thank you so much Swanson for carrying this product!

Although I have been a long time customer and fan of Swanson, this is the first review I've written. Just had to say how much I love this shampoo and the matching conditioner. My hair is somewhat wavy and fine (though a lot of volume) , but it tends to get dry and lifeless at the ends. Having tried many different products over the years, this one really worked miracles. It totally revitalized my hair after one shampoo/conditioning and it feels wonderful! Everyone has different type hair, though I highly recommend giving this product a try.
