I have average-textured, thin, slightly wavy hair with a very oily scalp. This cleans my hair so thoroughly that it feels a bit dry without conditioner! The stripped feeling is probably due in part to my area's hard water, but still... It does a good job of keeping the greasies away. With most shampoos, I am oily by the end of the day. With this one, I can actually wash every other day. The smell is lovely, green and lemony. [...], I tried Australian Organics for oily hair first and was disappointed. In combination with the conditioner, Desert Essence is my favorite shampoo.

            I have very oily hair, yet this product made my hair feel stripped. It felt like it even took out essential oils that hair needs. I now only put it on the greasiest part of my hair & put another shampoo on the rest of my head. I won't buy this again.

                I bought this for my preteen daughter who has recently developed very oily hair. It worked great. Left her hair clean and non-greasy, but yet managable. I am now going to purchase the conditioner for her too.

                  I dont have oily hair so this product probably isn't for me but i wanted to try it. It doesn't lather very well and leaves my hair dry and rough. I like that its all natural and that it smells nice but its not for me.

                        My hair is very thick and curly/wavy. My hair close to my scalp gets greasy but I have to be careful not to let rest of my hair get dried out and frizzy and this product is PERFECT! It works as well as any clarifying shampoo I have tried, but is much gentler.
