Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has this product been changed? Until about a month ago, I would have said that this shampoo and the matching conditioner had solved all of my hair problems and were the best I've found in a long time. But the last time I purchased I discovered that the products were completely different. The shampoo is thicker and a different color and leaves my hair feeling almost sticky (in a different way than the typical sulfate-free shampoo does). Before my hair was soft, shiny and my curls formed beautifully and lasted for several days. Now my hair feels dry and my curls fall apart within just a couple of hours. I'm SO disappointed! WHY does every company do this to me just when I find something that finally works??

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New formula is not as good I'm so disappointed with the new formulation of this shampoo. I LOVED the previous version of this shampoo, it made my hair soft and clean without over-drying it or making it oily. It was my holy grail shampoo. I ran out a couple months ago and bought a new bottle, only to be disappointed. There is some little plastic thing at the opening that makes the shampoo come out really slowly and it doesn't clean my hair as well anymore. My hair gets greasy overnight after using this shampoo and that didn't used to happen. It looks as if Desert Essence only added three new ingredients but somehow that has ruined what was an amazing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You CANNOT ask for a better product! I am a man with fine/dry hair. Most shampoo, even those for dry hair, just made things worse and I would end up with a frizzy mess on top of my head. I have also suffered from painful spots on my scalp that were more frequent after shampooing with standard shampoo. I would only shampoo 2 times a week to avoid these problems... not anymore! I have used this daily since purchase and have had no frizzyness and all the painful bumps are leaving. I wish I had found this sooner! My only suggestion would be in redesigning the bottle so the lid is on top. Having the opening on the bottom makes it hard to regulate how much I use and I end up using way too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my hair feel amazing! I never write product reviews (in fact, this might be my first ever); generally I am not particularly impressed (or unimpressed) with what I buy. However, this shampoo - and the counterpart conditioner - is amazing. Not only do they make my hair soft and manageable, but they allow me to go days (up to 72 hours!) without washing my hair, with no noticeable difference in texture. With other products, my hair feels greasy after 24-36 hours. Plus, I feel great knowing there are no harmful ingredients in these products. I started using them because I'm pregnant and switched to all organic/non-toxic products, but will continue to use them after pregnancy, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desert Excellence I have been using this shampoo for several months now and I hope that it will be available for the rest of my life. I am an extreme perfectionist and I have never found a shampoo as perfect as Desert Essence coconut. My hair went from dry, dull and limp to being soft, shiny and full of body in about a week after I first used this product. I know that this sounds just like a shampoo commercial because that is what the shampoo companies have always promised us that their products would do. They never did deliver what they promised but this one really does. It is very concentrated so it only takes a small amount to make thick, rich lather. Even though the lather is so thick, it rinses out very quickly and easily. My fine hair actually feels thicker. It even smells great! Do yourself a big favor and try this fabulous product, you, like I, will finally believe that a perfect shampoo really does exist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changed? I have to agree with reviewer KimK - that used to be fabulous, but the last purchase seems to be a different color and consistency and my hair is really not liking the change. It was my go-to weekly shampoo for fabulous curls, but now it feels like I've washed with detergent - dry and frizzy. Very sad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Great It used to be a FANTASTIC shampoo but like the other reviewers stated, they changed the formula and now my hair is limp, lifeless and dull.  Sooooo disappointing as I used it exclusively but now I have to find something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Better This shampoo and the matching conditioner are the best I have found. It doesn't get much better than these products. Just like the rest of the reveiws suggest, these product leave your hair in superb condition and your scalp, too!! Take it from someone with a severe sensitivity to other shampoos. Too much money spent on other products that left my head itchy, red and flakey. They also can last quite a while!
