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.

      Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo for Oily Hair, Lemon Tea Tree, 8 fl oz:

      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.

                    My 8-year old daughter developed extremely greasy hair and I tried many "cleansing" shampoos, only to have her wake up the next day with her head still greasy! This product worked to remove 100% of the grease the first time, smells awesome and has continued to be great ever since.

                    This shampoo does a good job at cleaning my oily scalp, but it leaves my ends quite dried out. I counter this with a good conditioner and argon oil.
