Desert Essence Shampoo FAQ’s
Is It Safe to Use Shampoo on Color-Treated Hair?
If you have color-treated hair, we recommend using the Italian Red Grape Shampoo and Conditioner, which are specially formulated to protect against sun damage and fading. Please avoid using any shampoo or conditioner with tea tree oil, as it may lighten hair color.
Do Desert Essence Shampoos Contain Silicone?
Desert Essence shampoos do not contain silicone. Instead, they’re powered by gentle plant extracts that remove daily impurities and leave hair soft and shiny.
Do Desert Essence Shampoos Contain Sulfates?
We have SCS, or sodium coco-sulfate, in some of our shampoos. However, SCS is mild and safe as it's derived from coconut oil.
Would the Fragrance-Free Shampoo Help with Scalp Issues?
For any scalp or hair type, you can't go wrong with Desert Essence's gentle Fragrance-Free Shampoo. Fortified with nourishing organic jojoba oil, comfrey and green tea, it's perfect for those of us who are sensitive to scents. If you have an itchy or dry scalp, we recommend using Desert Essence’s Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo or Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo, as both are made with pure Australian tea tree oil to clarify and soothe the scalp.
From moisture-rich, nourishing cleansers to volumizing formulas that help to restore fullness and bounce, each type of Desert Essence shampoo harnesses botanicals for clean, shiny, more manageable hair. Wake up to the power of great hair days ahead.
