After reading others' reviews about the smell of this product, I was curious. I'd had positive experiences with tea tree oil, though, so decided to try it. My first reaction to the smell was that it struck me as about 75 percent "shoe polish" and 25 percent "musty basement." My husband remarked that it smelled like paint. You'd think I might have tossed it out right away, but I really like how it works on my hair. So I'm continuing to use it every day. If you can take the smell, you might find that you're pleased with this product. If not, I'd recommend the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat shampoo -- also a very nice product, but with a more minty scent, not near as overpowering as this shampoo.

why do companies reformulate products that are about perfect? this used to be the best product on the market. it was gentle, smelled great and left my hair so shiny that i would get complements constantly. i ran out of the desert essence DAILY replenishing shampoo with tea tree oil and lavender and ordered this instead. DON'T be fooled - it is nothing like the old stuff. this has a strong peppermint smell (not at all like the old gentle stuff.) and though it says it does not have SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), my body can't tell the difference between that and the closely related sodium coco sulfate they now employ. my scalp broke out in sores from this stuff the first time i used it!buyer beware!!! this isn't the good stuff from about a year ago.

    Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo with Peppermint and Yucca, 12.9 fl oz:

    I like the smell of this shampoo. It cleans hair well without drying it out. I love tea tree oil products in all forms, though. Bottle says it's not recommended for colored hair so I rotate it with a different shampoo and follow only with a mild conditioner. Would buy again.

      We live in a small community where lice continues to surface in the school. My children use this shampoo everyday during the school year and have never had lice. The smell is different but I have learned to enjoy the clean fragrance.

        This product lathers very well and rinses clean. My hair has a nice feel after it is dry. I have graying, thinning hair.

        Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo with Peppermint and Yucca, 12.9 fl oz:

        I have tried Desert Ess. other "new" shampoos, but they don't come close to the effectiveness of this product. I was loosing my hair in lots of areas, my scalp would itch with sodium laureth sulfites now it doesn't! People forget what you put on your body is just as bad as what you put in it. People, your skin is an organ take care of it! I try "new" organic, parab, sulfite free shampoos alot and keep going back to this. Great product, hope it never goes away.

          I like the benefits of tea tree oil but there are better products than this one. This one stinks and is very medicinal smelling. It seems to be drying also. I much prefer the paul mitchell tea tree to this!

            Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo with Peppermint and Yucca, 12.9 fl oz:

            I get an itchy, bumpy scalp from having my head covered most of the time, even when my hair is wet and has to dry under cover. The tea tree oil cleans and removes the itch and bumps from my scalp. If I use the conditioner I can shampoo every 3 to 4 days instead of every other day. I colored my hair and it does lessen the color but I would rather have less color and no itching or bumps. It doesn't take very much shampoo to work up a good lather.

                I liked it at the start but it then gave me dry scalp. I have also read that a natural shampoo should not contain methylparaben. I will not be buying again.
