    Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Nourishing for Dry Hair, Coconut, 8 oz:

    I use this shampoo with the coconut conditioner that goes with it or the green apple conditioner of the same brand(for volume). My hair went from very dry/frizzy to the healthiest it has been since I was a little girl. I love Desert Essence! I also love the coconut hair cream they make!

      Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Nourishing for Dry Hair, Coconut, 8 oz:

      I tried using this shampoo based on reviews and I'm glad I did. A small amount makes great lather and it's so soft in my medium length hair even without conditioner. I also notice that it lessens falling hair and even at the end of the day, it's still soft and no tangles. I'm getting addicted and would like to try other desert essence products. This is a shampoo I can't leave without

        Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Nourishing for Dry Hair, Coconut, 8 oz:

        A little over a year ago as far as I can tell, my favorite shampoo in the world was reformulated for reasons unknown to me. Why desert essence would want to change the most amazing shampoo into what it is now is unthinkable. It was my number one shampoo that made me stop using any other shampoo. Together with its matching conditioner it was unbeatable for body, shine, and good cleaning. One day I went out and bought a new bottle only to find that my hair was dull, lifeless and felt like it had a coating on it. I thought that I had gotten a bad batch so I went out and purchased two or three more from different places but with the same result. I am heartbroken! I wrote to desert essence to ask them why they had reformulated it but they never responded. I have since been trying shampoo after shampoo with no luck in finding anything that works near as good. I am still searching in fact. I can only hope that others will contact desert essence and tell them they want the old formula back like I did. Maybe they will listen!

            This product cleans well, lathers well, smells nice (mild), and doesn't have the "bad" stuff in it. What's not to like?

              Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Nourishing for Dry Hair, Coconut, 8 oz:

              I bought this product because it seemed to be a popular product in the store that I used to work at. Customers were always buying it so I thought that it was probably a good shampoo. I also like that it contains organic ingredients because I care about what I use and put on my body. I'm really glad that I purchased this product because it's great! It smells wonderful. It has a light, warm coconut smell. It lathers well so you don't need to use much. I felt that it cleaned my hair well. I use it with the coconut conditioner and think that they work well together.

                I've only used this shampoo once but it was enough to make me look forward to using it again. It lathers well, cleans thoroughly and smells like a vacation!. My hair is thick, long, slightly wavy and full of lots of gray coarse hairs. It didn't weigh my hair down and seem to add just the right amount of moisture. I wash my hair about once a week, so I'm looking forward to the next time.

                  Can't recommend because even a little in the eyes (when rinsing out) burns worse than any shampoo I've ever used.

                      Comments about Desert Essence Shampoo, Nourishing for Dry Hair, Coconut, 8 oz:

                      This shampoo lathers well and smells like a pina colada, coconut with a hint of pineapple. My fine hair, which gets drier at the ends and oilier at the roots, responds well to this shampoo. Doesn't make my hair a tangled mess, doesn't over-moisturize. Leaves my hair clean, soft and shiny. I find that I only need a little bit of the conditioner on the ends. I like to use this when my hair feels dry, rotating with a more clarifying shampoo as needed. This scent is quite strong, though, so those sensitive to fragrance beware. My favorite from the Desert Essence line so far.
