Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Coconut Shampoo - Dry Hair is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from What's all the fuss? People seem to LOVE this shampoo. I bought it because of the reviews. It is fine. The "coconut" flavor is more of a chemical Pina Colada than a coconut smell. I wouldn't buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells way to strong I like the way it lathers and cleans. Gave it poor marks because it smells way to strong. Gave my husband (who is sensitive to strong perfume etc.) a headache and I had to wash my hair again. Bummers. Will look for this in unscented. Gave it to my daughter and she really likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I wanted to point out or help confirm that this product works well in "hard water" conditions. I rotate this product with an organic shampoo that does not work as well (good enough though) with the type of water we have. My wife loves it when my hair smells like coconut. This product works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WE LOVE THIS SHAMPOO This shampoo smells great, cleans your hair and is all natural. The only natural shampoo that I've found that has a good lather and works better than the over the counter regular brands with chemicals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great natural moisturizing shampoo This shampoo has no parabens and no sulfates, but lathers up like a champ. Thick formula - a little goes a long way. Very moisturizing and smells great too. Swanson has a great price for this 8 oz tube that makes it an excellent value. I have used this for years and my hair never gets tired of it. In a word: Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desert Essence Fan I'm already a Desert Essence fan, I use their skin products too. LOVE the DE Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner. I have an oily scalp with dry hair, which is also colored w/added highlights. This product works GREAT for all my hair washing/conditioning needs without stripping the color. I rotate it out with Desert Essence Fragrance Free Shampoo & Conditioner. It's always recommended to rotate your shampoos so your hair doesn't become stagnant with the same routine over and over. Swanson Vitamins offers their items at a affordable & fair price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Hair Being a fan of several of their products, I like this one as well. It cleans my hair, yet leaves it feeling soft and not dry. I complement it with their Coconut Conditioner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a great value. It just takes a little bit to make a good lather. The only problem I had with it was the packaging. The "liquid" part leaked out around the cap, leaving behind the more solid part, which was very hard to squeeze out of the tube. It leaves my hair shiny & soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coconut Shampoo I love this shampoo! It is so moisturizing, smells so good even after hair has dried, and it doesn't bother the skin on the rest of my body (like my old shampoo did.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My husband and I use this along with the conditioner.It is wonderful. The shampoo leaves the hair clean and only takes a small amount for even long hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy smelling and creamy! Like I mentioned in my review about the Desert Essence coconut conditioner, these guys got the fragrance profile right on this product. It is a light coconut scent that is refreshing in the morning and I get hints of it throughout the day. The shampoo itself is also a bit creamier than what I was using, which is nice because I can use less. I also LOVE that it is sulfate free but still lathers up a bit when using. If you are a person who has to have a little suds action while you shampoo, this product delivers. I have SUPER hard well water and my hair gets trashed but after a week of using this shampoo, my hair feels softer, less straw-like, and isn't gummed down by residues from my water. Because I use less shampoo each day, the value is also quite nice. I am more than willing to spend a bit more to get quality products that are not only good for me but made with the environment in mind. THANK YOU Desert Essence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shampoo I like the smell and it does not dry my hair like other shampoos. The price is also fantastic. My only complain is the container. It's a bit hard to squeeze it out, but it's a good product. I recommend it.
Date published: 2014-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Clear Through! Lots of suds, and keeps hair clean for a longer time. I used to shampoo every other day, but now I can go three days or more. DON'T get it in your eyes, however...really stings badly amd the feeling wears off slowly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reformulated 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shampoo! Really like all their products so far! Tried the shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, and hand lotion. The smell is great and all the products work. My hair is healthy and soft.
