Desert Essence Shampoos: Red Raspberry And Lemon Tea Tree

Desert Essence Organics Shampoos 1I think it’s already obvious that I’m a devotee of Desert Essence, especially, its Red Raspberry Shampoo. This shampoo created for shine enhancement is one of my favorites, I have already written a short review about it in What’s In My Bathroom post and few other posts. My opinion hasn’t changed, I still repurchase and enjoy using it.

Desert Essence Organics Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo is new to me. It’s a clarifying shampoo for oily hair, and since my scalp can get oily rather quick, I thought it would be a good match for my hair. I like the packaging, it’s a 237ml bright and vivid tube that’s perfect for a product with citrus. The scent is also citrus-related. I don’t use clarifying shampoos on a daily basis because I fear they would dry out my hair ends, but this shampoo does not feel drying at all. When trying out a new shampoo, I sometimes like to use it without a conditioner for a few times just to see how my hair would react. As suspected, a conditioner is a must with the Lemon Tea Tree shampoo.

See the ingredients:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract*, Coco-glucoside (Coconut/Sugar), Sodium Coco-sulfate (Coconut), Lauryl Glucoside (Coconut/Sugar), Decyl Glucoside (Coconut/Sugar), Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin (Palm)*, Leptospermum Petersonii Oil (Lemon Tea tree), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil*, Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5), Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract (Maca Root)*, Yucca Brevifolia Root Extract (Yucca Cactus)*, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract (Comfrey)*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract*, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract (Sea Kelp)*, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract*, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate. *Certified organic.

I recently was in need of a clarifying shampoo and purchased Desert Essence Organics Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo. It worked really well! I like the smell of Lemon Tea Tree better than regular Tea Tree oil.

I had the coconut duo and I loved them, then I “moved on” to Acure line but I think it’s time to try the Red Raspberry shampoo next! 🙂 xx
