I used to work at a form of truthful commerce/environmentally pleasant store and we stocked quite a lot of Desert Essence objects. Since I received the whole lot low cost once I labored there, I attempted all of the various kinds of shampoos and conditioners by Desert Essence. They had been my first “pure” magnificence objects. Since I’m at all times on the look out for excellent pure hair and physique care objects, I assumed I’d write some critiques on right here of merchandise I’ve used up to now (and what I exploit now) to assist individuals out in the event that they’re eager about making the change.
I don’t think about this model to be the best choice in case you’re searching for a very environmentally pleasant or pure product. The ingredient record is kind of lengthy they usually appear to incorporate some pointless components, but it surely’s nonetheless fairly great things in them. If you’re involved about utilizing a extra pure product, persist with the Organics and keep away from those that don’t have that on their label.

I’ve since switched to a special model however I nonetheless inform individuals to attempt Desert Essence in the event that they’re searching for one thing a bit more healthy. Nearly all of their merchandise are vegan, and all are 100% vegetarian and by no means examined on animals. Most are gluten and soy free. So whereas it’s not my favorite model, you’ll be able to really feel fairly good about utilizing it. The least costly I’ve discovered is buying proper from their web site. They’re fairly broadly obtainable, although, and I’ve seen their merchandise in huge department shops.
Desert Essence hair merchandise are nice for people who find themselves used to regular shampoos like Dove or Pantene. They nonetheless lather rather well, they’ve fairly robust scents, and behave just like the merchandise you’re used to typically. They’re a bit pricier than common drugstore manufacturers, however pure merchandise typically are. It’s price it. While you actually begin eager about what’s in your shampoo, conditioner, and cleaning soap, it’s form of gross. Dove bar cleaning soap, for instance, nonetheless makes use of a type of animal fats.
I’m reviewing the six shampoo and conditioner duos you see above.
Inexperienced Apple and Ginger (natural): This scent is to die for. It’s contemporary and fruity however not medicinal smelling, and it’ll make your hair odor nice for a few days. It says it’s for effective hair so in case you stay in a dry local weather (like me) or have dry/processed/thick hair, it’s not a terrific choice. I’ve used it in our extra humid summers with fairly good outcomes, and most well-liked it when my hair was on the shorter facet. A pal of mine with actually effective hair thinks these items is the bomb, and it makes her hair look nice.
Italian Purple Grape (natural): I discover the purple grape shampoo smells like low cost processed candies. It’s virtually bubble gummy. I don’t prefer it in any respect and once I purchased it I ended up giving it to my sister as a result of I hated it a lot. It’s for colored hair, so it does assist with dryness and safety. I simply couldn’t recover from the loopy robust scent.
Lemon Tea Tree (natural): This one is for greasy hair so I think about it’s one other one that will be higher in additional humid areas. It dried out my scalp, made me actually itchy, and prompted quite a lot of breakage in my hair. It is a good choice for individuals with each oily hair and issues with dandruff or flaking. When you’ve got dry hair, or naturally dry pores and skin, keep away from it. The scent is fairly good, however a bit medicinal. You possibly can actually odor the tea tree oil.
Coconut: The coconut was my favorite at first, but it surely’s additionally the one one which isn’t categorized as natural. It’s most much like standard hair merchandise. Each the shampoo and conditioner are loopy creamy and when you’ve got dry hair, it’ll work like a allure. The scent is kind of robust and it lasts a very long time between washes. This one makes use of a man-made perfume, so preserve that in thoughts. With prolonged use my scalp grew to become actually irritated from utilizing this. It’s their hottest scent, although, and it does odor good. When you’re searching for a superb transition from regular hair care merchandise into extra pure ones, this can be a fairly respectable choice. When you’ve got extremely delicate pores and skin or points with eczema, keep away from it.
Perfume Free (natural): I wished to love the unscented greater than I did. It didn’t irritate my pores and skin in any respect, however my hair simply appeared lacklustre. I additionally missed having a scent in my shampoo. It took the enjoyable out of washing my hair. It’s a good choice for delicate pores and skin or dry hair, and I believe it’d be nice for teenagers. I don’t know what infants are supposed to make use of so I’m not going to suggest it for them. I don’t know any infants personally proper now.
Purple Raspberry (natural): This child is shine enhancing. It should make your hair fabulously shiny. I’m not an enormous fan of the scent and discover it a bit cloying, however in case you like very sweet-smelling merchandise, that is for you. I do know my sister likes it rather a lot. No complaints, however not my favorite.
