On the fence

I'm not sure about this shampoo - it's okay.

I like the colour of the packaging, and I like the idea of a coconut milk hydrating shampoo (my lengths are rather dry and I'm prone to frizz so hydration's a good thing)... but it just doesn't do it for me.

The scent reminds me of baby sick and I don't find my hair any more hydrated. It does clean it though, which is why I don't dislike it - I just wouldn't reach for it.

It has become the shampoo I keep for when I run out of shampoo and have forgotten to buy some in the groceries.

Would I recommend it? Not so much. It's not the worst, but it's not a wow, especially when considering the price.

Not As Good As I Had Thought

I received this product in the BBBE You Won't Believe It's Hair box and have been using it for almost 3 months. I have used a couple of Essano products now and had high expectations for this product.

Like the rest of the Essano brand the packaging is a gorgeous rose pink. The smell is beautiful like a bouquet of flowers. I like the smell and don't find it overpowering.

Results: I found it just okay. This shampoo was no where near as hydrating as I expected it to be though I must say it is summer and probably didn't help. I wonder if this would have been better to use in a different season. My hair is slightly softer, just not as soft or smooth as a previous shampoo of a different brand I was using before trying this one. I also had a bit of a reaction to this shampoo, which is unusal as I know I have used another Essano Shampoo in the past and had no reaction to it.

All in all though I won't be repurchasing this.

Tips: Does not lather very well, I found applying product to wet hair, then running water over hair for a couple of seconds enabled a really good lather.

Nothing amazing but reliable

Sad that in this day and age I want amazing products every time so when it literally does what it says I kind of feel unimpressed. We are quick to say when they don't meet your requirements but this is a good example of a mid product doing a mid job. It was well priced but clearly it is not a salon product so you don't get a salon result. I liked the fragrance of the shampoo - but I like coconut and it said it was coconut :-) It was not too heavy and didn't leave my hair feeling stripped. A good reliable product. I admit it was over the summer in humidity I was using this product which is notoriously a hard time for shampoo so I was quite generous with my ratings as honestly it did not disappoint

Tips: Don't expect miracles its only a shampoo Don't use too much at once or it will feel harsh Good in summer

Essano... you've done it again!

I am a huge fan of this product. Another great product by Essano!

The results were fantastic - left my hair soft, silky and smelling delightful! (actually took my back to my holiday in Samoa). The coconut and pawpaw is not only a great combination to help the condition and hydration of your hair, but also smells divine!

I had seen it under the "new products" at the supermarket when it first came out, and I just had to try it - glad I had made the sacrifice of that amount. Although you will notice it on sale often at the local supermarkets.

My hair is very long, normally rather dry and lifeless, but when I had bought this shampoo, it made a dramatic difference! Very clean, soft, full of bounce and volume, easy to maintain and smelling great!

Easy to spot on the shelves, as most Essano products are in simple yet cute pink bottles. Easy to dispense product, and even with the large amount of shampoo I need to wash my long hair, the bottle lasted for a fair while.

If you're wanting great hydration for your hair... look no further! I will definitely be repurchasing.

Tips: Definitely team this with the Essano Coconut Milk Conditioner for ultimate hair care!

Great for Dry hair

I bought this shampoo and the conditioner at the supermarket after feeling my hair was dry and dull. It had been through a few colouring sessions as well, so it was needing some moisture. I had wanted to try this shampoo for a while and it was on special at the supermarket so I got it.

The bottle/packaging is lovely. Shampoo comes out relatively easy just squeezing the bottle. The thing you notice the most is the amazingly scrummy coconut scent from the shampoo - it's gorgeous. It didn't feel over drying or knotty when shampooing with this product. Any styling product is easily washed out, and you come out of the shower and you hair still smells of the lovely coconut scent (enhanced if you use the coconut conditioner with it!)

I really love this shampoo/conditioner, and will likely stick with it

Tips: Countdown tend to have it regularly on special with their 'Beauty' Sales

Use with the Essano Coconut milk Conditioner for the complete hydrating experience.

Clean and soft

I was excited to receive this in the 'I can't believe it's hair 2' beauty box. I love anything coconut and had been eyeing this up at the supermarket. The price is a little steep at $16 but I would buy it if it was on special.

It comes in a cute pink bottle which I think is gorgeous packaging. The lid is one where you push down on one side and the other side pops up. My gripe with the bottle is it is so hard to get the shampoo out as you get half way through it so you have to bang it upside down which is really annoying. The plastic bottle is just too hard to squeeze. It would be great if they could change this.

The shampoo itself is gorgeous on my hair. It makes it feel so clean and the smell is delicious. It does not lather heaps like other shampoos I have used, you don't need a lot and I feel a little goes a long way. It washes out easily. I love that the smell lingers. It smells fresh and clean. I feel like it helps my hair stay cleaner for longer also.I use this in conjunction with the matching conditioner and they are a great combo. I hope they sort the bottle issue out as that is the only downside.

Thanks for the review. I’m using Essano body wash and love it. I was wondering about the shampoo and conditioner but loathe to buy it and find I hated it! Good to have a heads up about the bottle issue. Thanks again!

Essano coconut shampoo

I love the Essano products and this shampoo is no exception. Lovely pink packaging like all their other products. The shampoo lathers well and leaves my hair feeling lovely and clean. And the smell!!!! I LOVE all things coconut and this certainly has a beautiful scent.

Tips: Combine with the Essano Coconut conditioner for a great result.
