Desert Essence Shine and Refine Hair Lotion Coconut -- 6.4 fl oz
Wanted to love it
I love the shampoo and conditioner in this line. And based on all the great reviews, I thought this would be the ONE. But I'm disappointed. I have very thick, coarse hair, so I need defrizzing, smoothing, and added shine. While it does add a softness to my hair after blow-drying, and helps with frizz on the ends, it's very flat, and it leaves my hair feeling filmy, not silky. It really is a lotion, not a "slick" product. Doesn't sink into my hair, and leaves a lotioiny mess on my hands.

Detangling, Softening, Styling
Our little daughter (9months) has thick, wavy hair past her shoulders. Rubbing her head back and forth in the high chair or carseat used to cause ceaseless tangles. It was so sad to comb through her near-hopelessly matted hair as she whimpered! However, I had to do this at least daily (sometimes several times a day!) just to keep the matting under control! Even then, her hair was constantly frizzy and uncontrollable from having all the tiny tangles combed out.
Not wanting to douse her in the typical spray-in chemicals, I searched Vitacost for a natural product that got rave reviews for detangling - something I could feel safe putting on our precious gift.
Folks, this is it!!! Every bath, our daughter's hair gets shampooed, conditioned, then lightly coated with this stuff. Voila! NO MORE TANGLES!!! Just soft, adorably wild curls on our VERY happy little girl! As an added bonus, the detangling effect lasts until her next bath, every time!
Oh, and I LOVE it on my hair, too. ;)

This stuff is the BOMB!
I have very long, coarse, frizzy hair & have tried every product on the planet that claims to eliminate frizz & smooth hair. I absolutely LOVE this product! It does what it says & my hair is starting to feel like it used to. Have only been using it for about a week but I love the results. You don't need a lot (I only use about a dime size amount) along with a few drops of argan & coconut oil. So glad to find a natural line of products that doesn't have a bunch of chemicals & is also cruelty free! Will absolutely keep using Desert Essence products!

Another good product from Desert Essence
I don't like using a ton of stuff in my hair but it is long so I like a leave in conditioner that smells good and does the job of helping detangle, etc. This fits the bill perfectly. Nice refreshing coconut scent too not sickening sweet like some coconut scented things. Like this product, would purchase again and great price!

This lotion has tamed my out of control, dry, frizzy hair and it's lightweight. It's great because after using the ORS Olive Oil Moisturizer that left an extra 5 pounds my hair without practically doing anything it feels good ti have a lotion that actually penetrates without any added weight
