Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I love this shampoo. It is gluten free and I feel it is very gentle to my hair as well as my color. I ran out and used another product. Never again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a product that makes you say aah I just started using the Italian Red Grape Desert essence Shampoo, Not very many products make me say aah when I use them, but this one does. Smells good, lathers good, makes you feel good. Not supposed to have as many chemicals as other shampoos and it is reasonably priced. I wonder if they have body wash in this same flavor?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great and Smells Great I love Desert Essence products and this one smells so good and does not contain harsh chemicals that can cause allergies. It lathers up very good and leaves hair shiny and soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I've used this product for the past 5 years and it's wonderful. It has a great smell and suds up beautifully with out any of the yucky additives nobody needs. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny Hair! This is the best shampoo I have ever used! I have fine, naturally curly, colored hair and this is the only shampoo that give shine, moisture and volume in one. That it is natural and sulfate and paraben free is an added bonus! My son has thick, coarse wavy hair and he swears by it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very impressed What a great shampoo ! a wonderful grape fragrance, lasts a long time because you do not have to use as much like other shampoos. My hair is shiny, looks and feels healthy, protects and will not strip color from hair (I use Henna) Great product , great price, very satisfied

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really Strong Fragrance I got a headache after using this. It feels great, and really cleans. I just cannot use it, its waaay to strong for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good good good i'll be honest, i bought it because of its scent - not from swansons, but from a grocery store. if you like grapes, the scent is incredible, addictive almost, and it lasts the whole day. It doesn't give you a squeaky-clean feel like other shampoos do (if you have oily to normal hair to begin with) , however, it doesn't leave your hair greasy either. There's no need for conditioner when you use this shampoo. You can't use it every day, because there will be a build up. Use it every three-four days for normal hair. If your hair is dry or damaged, you can probably benefit from it more frequently. The price at swansons is almost 1/2 of what i paid at the grocery store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really Disappointed I bought this because of the great reviews. I love the way it smells, and it's very sudsy, but it is very harsh and strips my hair, leaving it straw like. I used it in conjunction with the Red Grape Conditioner and both products are just awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have naturally curly hair and this works great. I also use the conditioner. The smell is wonderful and leaves my hair soft. A little goes a long ways. Definitely will buy again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lots of shine and body I have found this shampoo gives my hair lots of shine and body. It does not suds as much as other shampoos but I feel that means it is leaving the natural oils of the hair alone. Great price that Swansons Vitamins has offered. I have used this shampoo and conditioner as gifts as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shampoo ever Best smelling shampoo on the market, no more itchy scalp from harsh chemicals, the whole family uses it and raves about it. Makes a thoughtful thank you gift too. No one sells it for less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. No parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, phthalates or phosphates . Cruelty free and biodegradable. Cleans without overstripping. Smells great. Good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have used the shampoo and conditioner. I love it, your hair is so soft and silky. It does not become heavy or oily from the conditioner. Great stuff. I love that there is no added artificial fragrance. I am allergic to fragrances and this does not bother me at all. Wonderful stuff.........
