    I have thick naturally wavy hair that is about one foot long. This shampoo AND it's complementing conditioner washed my hair luxuriously and with PLEASURE.

    There are several things that I look for in a shampoo/conditioner.

    ONE: First impact is the scent. I am chemically sensitive, so I HATE artificially smelling products. Too sweet and I get a headache. The wine smell of this product is pleasing. It is like the organic smell of an oak wine barrel that has been aged over many years with a fine Cabernat Sauvignon. It's earthy and not overwhelming and DOES NOT stay with your dry hair. IMO, it's more earthy than sweet.

    OTHER POINTS: Lathering - and does not immediately dry out my hair during the wash. Some shampoos dry out TOO MUCH and then you condition. This shampoo, has the perfect amount of wash to dry out.

    When I use both the Shampoo and Conditioner, my hair retains it's THICKNESS, WAVINESS and my frizzies are controlled. Some shampoos can weigh down my thick hair in it's effort to condition. Not so here.

    I am now a repeat buyer of this product.

    I really wanted to like this product. Unfortunately, as an aromatherapist, I'm puzzled by the company's claims. the "proprietary essential oil blend" listed in their ingredients smells A LOT like a fragrance oil, not essential oil. This product smells like grape bubble gum. Never have I been exposed to an essential oil or blend of oils that smell like this or have a lingering smell... EOs do not do that!

      This shampoo smells so wonderful you almost want to eat it! It makes my hair soft and helps keep my color lasting longer between visits to my stylist. I love that it is vegan and gluten free so I can use it without worry.

        This shampoo is great! For a natural shampoo it has a lot of bubbles and it smells fantastic. I have normal hair, I do dye it though so I love that this is a UV protectant. For best results I recommend the conditioner too.

            You have to use half the bottle to even get a lather and my hair isn't even to my shoulders. Then the feel my hair has after rinsing is awful. The smell isn't the worst thing. Not buying this stuff wouldn't be a loss.

            After reading the reviews here, I had higher expectations. This shampoo and conditioner are awful. My hair is so dry and tangled after using this that I can't get a comb through it. It is going in the garbage.

            This is the best shampoo I've ever used. It left my hair feeling so soft and shiny. I have had a horrible time with dry hair and this solved my problem in one use.

            Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo for Damaged Hair, Italian Red Grape, 8 fl oz:

            The smell will make you nostalgic for a grape Blow-pop or some such candy; however, that's about where the good qualities end for me. I have curly hair, so I condition it most days but only shampoo every few days. This feels pretty bad right from the get-go--almost like you are putting some industrial cleaning product in your hair and trying to pass it off as shampoo (with a grapey smell, of course). My hair feels coarse and knotty afterwards. I won't be buying this again, and am still on the hunt for a gentle shampoo with the sodium laureth/lauryl sulfates which are very drying chemicals.

            Smell is nice, but gets very sugary sweet. Made my hair soft at first, and then started really weighing my hair down, making it quite gunky - after only one bottle. Won't buy again.

            Works well and doesn't dry out my hair, but you had better REALLY like the scent of grape juice! The scent is a bit overpowering. Wish they'd make it this mild formula in other lighter, more citrus scents (the lemon they have is for oily hair only).

            Smells like grape bubbalicious! Strong smell in bottle and in the shower but after your hair dries it only smells clean. Lathered nicely and made my hair silky soft. Love this because it has no parabens which cause cancer in lab tests. Only buy if you like the smell of grapes.
