Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo - Oily Hair is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squeaky Clean This shampoo gets your hair squeaky clean. You may need to put a little something on your hair afterwards to keep it from being too dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desert Essence Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo We've been using this shampoo for several years now. My husband uses it all the time, where I like to use the Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo most of the time and use the Lemon Tea Tree, for oily hair on and off. It has a nice scent and does a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome I absolutely love this stuff. I feel like my hair is so clean after using this, my hair doesn't get as oily as quickly, and it has a nice fresh smell to boot. I recommend getting the conditioner as well. Great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for oily teenage hair I bought this for my granddaughter who has really oily hair. It works really well without having an odor or chemicals. Her hair is very long and it leaves smelling fresh, clean and very little trace of oiliness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shampoo! At last, a natural organic shampoo that suds, smells wonderful and leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean. A little goes a long way. You can't beat it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shampoo For Oily Hair Great shampoo for oily hair. I have oily hair and this works wonders for my hair. It is gentle enough to be used every day if needed. I often use it every day. I have even used it twice a day and no side effects. It smells great, and really removes excess oil without drying your hair. If you have oily hair like me then this is a great shampoo for you. I really like this product and I will be taking it with me to college.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointment I bought 3 tubes for our oily haired family. None of us like it because it simply does not do what it says. One daughter with long hair says it dries out her hair yet seems to leave the scalp even oiler. Washing is pleasant, and the fragrance is nice, but it simply doesn't do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome conditioner!! I have very fine but thick hair which easily tangles. I also have a scalp that produces tons of oil, making it difficult to wash my hair without drying out the ends. In the past, conditioners have always left my scalp too oily, hair weighted down and the ends of my very long hair a tangled mess. I have been using this conditioner for almost a month now (I still have the first 8oz tube) and I love this stuff!! It makes my hair shiny, clean without weighing it down. My scalp doesn't get oily anymore and the ends of my hair do not tangle at the slightest breeze. For value and quality this just cannot be beat!!! If you have hard to manage, fine straight hair like mine, you will not regret buying this. Oh and it smells wonderful too!!! Finally a conditioner that works!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desert Essence This shampoo is great for oily hair. I have been using it for several years, but just recently found it on Swanson's web site. I will be buying it from them since I purchased several other items as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for little sisters hair I ordered this for my litlle sister who has extremely oily hair, and she really likes it. She says that you only need to use a little bit at a time b/c it lathers pretty well and "covers your whole head".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shampoo This is a great shampoo that leaves your scalp and hair very clean, You can shampoo less often as your hair stays cleaner longer. It is so nice to use a Tea Tree Shampoo that smells like lemons and the lemon scent is not overpowering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oily I used this product and it actually made my hair oilier.
