Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner

Are you trying to grow your hair longer? Do the ends of your hair feel dry? Do you want your hair to feel soft and silky? Then try 'Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner'!!

I've been trying to grow my hair longer, but the ends continued to feel dry. Which made it hard for me to let my hair grow - until I started using these products. This makes my hair feel so great!

I've been alternating between 'Desert Essence's Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner' and 'Desert Essence's Fragrance Free Shampoo Conditioner' ~ which I also love! Since using these products, my hair feels softer and silkier.

I love the coconut fragrance! I continue to smell it long after my shower. I even smell it when I use the 'Fragrance Free Shampoo and Condition'.

I love the fact that these products are vegan ~ some shampoo and conditioners contain silk! The ingredients are WONDERFUL! No Parabens, No Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates.

I 100% recommend this shampoo and conditioner! I love it!

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Mouthwash

Find this at www.desertessence.com

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Mouthwash is a really good mouthwash in my opinion. The minty flavor isn't that potent, but I like how this doesn't burn or sting my mouth. I got the 16oz refill bottle because it was cheaper than getting the regular 8oz size.

I think this works great with Desert Essence toothpaste - right now I'm using the mint flavor but I plan to try ginger and wintergreen soon. My teeth seem whiter now that I've been using both products, which is a definite plus! I'm also glad that both the toothpaste and mouthwash are Xylitol free! Even though I still have some things that contain Xylitol (like vegan gum) I'm glad that I can minimize the amount I use by not using toothpaste/mouthwash that contains it.

Desert Essence is one of my favorite brands. I love their toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, etc. I also love how most of their products are vegan - including this mouthwash!

I give this -  4 stars

The reason this isn't 5 stars is because the mouthwash's aftertaste is somewhat bland. Other than that, though, I love it!
