Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers what it promises This is a great shampoo. I bought it for the first time a couple weeks ago and will continue getting it along with the conditioner because it delivers what it promises as does the conditioner!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from allergy I did not use this product. It failed an allergy patch test. It has an interesting fragrance. I gave it 3 stars because I don't know if does a good job in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Shampoo After first use, my hair is cleansed, soft and in-fact, shiny. I tend to get an irritated scalp with certain harsh shampoos. However, I have curly, medium length color processed hair. I like the ingredients, the gentle lather and non-stripping ingredients. It does not have added perfume or synthetic fragrance (ditch any shampoo that does). It has a lovely scent. Good value for ethical, natural and organic shampoo. I'm always a fan of Desert Essence hair care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Shampoo! I first bought this shampoo on clearance for $1 at our local grocery! My husband and I have fallen in love with this shampoo! I have very gray hair and this seems to have stimulated growth, may be due to the tea tree oil in it. My husband had scalp issues and they are gone! Our hair is so incredibly shiny and soft!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I noticed a big difference in shine and smoothness when using this and the conditioner. It smells lightly of apple cider vinegar and mint. I have five hair though so can weigh my hair down so I don’t use it every wash.
