Green Apple & Ginger Shampoo by Desert Essence
An apple-a-day allergy product
We were running out of shampoo. My husband had recently mentioned that he liked the shampoo that we had been using. So, what to do: buy another bottle, or try the interesting new allergy product that I noticed at the health food store?
Well, if you review allergy products for a living, you pick the new one!
My husband thanked me this time for my relentless search for new hair care. Desert Essence Organics Green Apple & Ginger Shampoo has received his seal of approval. It's also received mine.
Here's why: This is an allergy product that really means business. It contains no parabens, sodium lauryl / laureth sulfates, phthalates, artificial fragrance or color, silicones, EDTA, glycol or petroleum products. You might wonder how the heck it cleans your hair (I certainly did). It uses a cleaning system based on sugar and coconut oil.
My hair came out clean and soft, without ever feeling stripped. The lather is lovely and luxurious, unlike many other gentle hair care products. What really impressed me is that my hair felt thicker right away, before I even left the shower.
The other really nice thing about this product is the fragrance. The product smells deliciously like green apple, without any artificial ingredients to do it. I don't know about you, but I find that some products are over-fragranced and that it really is too much stimulation for my nose first thing in the morning. This product seemed to hit just the right level of fragrance.
What has really impressed me is that this shampoo has won over my husband. He really is a fussy customer when it comes to hair care (despite the fact that he doesn't have as many hairs left as he used to!) He wants his hair cleaned, even if he's been out working and sweating in the backyard all day. His sensitive skin means that he needs an allergy product that is extremely mild. He can't stand an itchy scalp. He also hates a "girly" scent. This shampoo passed all his worst tests with flying colors.
If you have tough customers at your house, this shampoo could be worth a try. Be sure to couple this allergy product with the conditioner from *Desert Essence[Green Apple & Ginger Conditioner by Desert Essence]- this product also won me over!
