This shampoo and its matching conditioner have almost completely eliminated the painful itchiness on my scalp caused by what I now know is an allergy to the fragrance and scent found in most hair care products. I use them every day on my shoulder length, wavy hair which is left soft and shiny. Both my scalp and my hair feel better than they have in at least 4 years. The shampoo is on the thin side, and I do have to use about one tablespoon of the conditioner, but these are minor inconveniences when compared with how well these products are working for me.

This stuff is ok, We have been using it for some time. Finding a natural (Vegetarian) shampoo without fragrance is tough. My biggest complaint is that it dries my hair and scalp out to the point of dry flakiness , the conditioner I can only use a very tiny amount or my scalp breaks out. I honestly prefer my home made baking soda shampoo and apple cider vinegar conditioner but I use this every once in a while for convenience and My Husband prefers it. Grateful that this is available but will switch if something better comes along. Oh and I also don't care for its smell. But it works for now.

    Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

    This is the 3rd Fragrance-Free Shampoo I have tried now & this is by far the best! It lathers better than ANY shampoo I have ever used, it cleans my hair so well! It has no smell which is great for my allergies & its also free of rosemary & all the other things I'm allergic to. I am so happy with this shampoo. I have long thick hair & it cleans it perfectly. This is also the first shampoo that didn't make my head itch. I highly recommend this shampoo!

        Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

        I was diagnosed with a sensitivity to fragrance and preservatives and now this is the only shampoo I can use.
        My hair has store bought semi-permanent color and this product does not strip away the color. It is a very gentle shampoo but does a great job cleansing hair. I don't use very many hair products so am not sure if it would cleanse out with only one application. May need to rinse and repeat.
        Overall this has been my saving grace as I cannot use any other shampoos because of all the additives.

          This shampoo lasts a long time and has great sudsing power.
          It rinses clean and has no smell. I am highly allergic to smells in products.
          They seem to all have some kind of odor.

              Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

              I am VERY sensitive to odors and scents. So sometimes "fragrance free" cosmetics will still bother me. This shampoo is great. It lathers better than most the other additive-free shampoos. It may not give the same feel as drugstore shampoos, but it is certainly enough to feel as though your hair is thoroughly clean. Hair is a little difficult to comb through if you do not use a conditioner. But even my hairdresser is impressed with this product!

                  Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Fragrance Free, 8 fl oz:

                  During this pregnancy I can not stand the smell of any soaps, shampoos, or deodorants. Everything I have purchased from our local stores that says "scent/fragrance free" is NOT scent/fragrance free. This is the one and ONLY shampoo I am able to use. It is a bit pricey compared to my normal shampoo purchases, but totally worth it!!!

                  I was also worried that my hair would tangle easily without using conditioner, but this seems to work just fine. I have fewer tangles after my shower than I did going into the shower.

                  Hope this helps others.

                      This has been a truly unscented shampoo that actually seems to work! I am an allergy sufferer and need to use all unscented soaps/shampoos/conditioners as well as unscented laundry detergents to keep reactions to a minimum. Some products say unscented by as soon as you open the bottle, a odd smell emits from it. Not with this product. It lathers well, which a lot of shampoos don't, and rinses well.
