I received this product in a target box. This product smells good and I love how the shampoo is mint green colored. I definitely love how there is natural green clay in this. I recommend this product and I will repurchase this again!

Received this as part of the Target Beauty Box. I was pleasantly surprised that it was a full-sized bottle that is normally $9.99. I have hair that is normally oily at the roots and slightly dry at the ends, so it it hard to find a shampoo that doesn't add more grease to the mix. I loved this shampoo and am so happy I tried it. Since I started using it daily (no conditioner) my hair has not been greasy. The ends also seems healthier and isn't dry at the ends. It has lasted me 2 months and I was kind of upset to find it it sold out at Target online and in stores. I hope they are not discontinuing the product because I definitely recommend it to anyone who has oily hair. my hair has never looked this good and I will only use this product from now on!

I received this shampoo in a Target beauty box. I had never used this brand before, but I'm definitely a fan now. This shampoo makes my hair feel nice and clean without making it feel dry. It doesn't have a strong scent either. I will giving more items from this brand a try.

I really like this shampoo as I feel it really left my hair refreshed and recharged. The fragrance is very nice! Very clean and pretty. Lathers well in my fine/medium hair. It rinsed and left my hair feeling weightless. The bottle is gorgeous and makes me feel fancy when I use it, haha. Good stuff if your hair is acting up with dry and oiliness.

I love the way the clay in this shampoo absorbs all the extra oil from my roots. It moisturizes the dry tips of my hair, while preventing that greasy scalp look I often get in the summer time. It also is great for rebalancing my hair after exposure to chlorine or salt water. This is a must have product for beach goers like myself!

Left my hair feeling clean and soft although I can't say I saw a difference in dryness. Smells nice compared to the mask that pairs it whose smell I hated. Don't know if I would repurchase but a nice shampoo at a nice price that is convenient to purchase. I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

This is a great shampoo to use to remove oil & build up. It removes that stuff & gives your hair a fresh start. I really like to use this 2 or 3 times a week to remove all of the built up product out of my hair & nourish it. It really is great to do this for your hair. I would recommend this to anyone. Especially, to those of us who use products like gel, mousse, hair spray, etc. in our hair.

I received this in July's Target beauty box. The smell was great. I thought it would be a great product because it retails for about $10 normally for just the shampoo. I have used it three times so far. I must say there hasn't been much of a change in the dryness of my hair and I think it left my hair feeling flat

THIS STUFF IS AMAZING! I have oily roots but dry ends and I was on the verge of pulling my hair out because I couldn't find something to help the love hate relationship my roots and ends were having. Dessange made my scalp feel wonderful and my ends super happy. I only wish they sold bigger bottles and target wasn't out of stock!

I saw this product in Target the other day and was very interested in it. I get very oily hair pretty much a day after washing it, and dry shampoo isn't cutting it. so if anyone has tried this let me know if you like it or not!
