I have dealt with hair fall and breakage for over many years now. If you’ve dealt with this too, you know it’s an annoying issue. I recently got to try out Desert Essence’s Anti-Breakage Shampoo & Conditioner and was really curious to find out if it truly works and helps to reduce breakage.

What to expect from Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo & Conditioner?

  • Both the shampoo and conditioner are infused with a blend of Country Life Maxi-Hair and Biotion which helps to reduce breakage up to 61%. 
  • Rich in Jojoba, coconut oils, aloe and saw palmetto which helps to fortify hair cuticles and revitalize hair strands and helps to minimize breakage
  • Aloe & Shea butter in the conditioner to help condition and detangle hair
  • Cruelty-Free, Vegetarian & Gluten-Free
  • No Sulfates, parabens

Some more cool things about Desert Essence –

  • All Desert essence products are 100% Vegetarian and many of them are Vegan as well. As a company, they do not believe in animal testing.
  • Most of their products are also Gluten Free
  • They have sourced and harvested ingredients in a sustainable and ecologically responsible manner for over 35 years now.

The shampoo in itself did a great job of reducing overall hair breakage. It was not overly drying nor did it make the hair oily. As far as the scent is concerned,  I’m not a huge fan of it. It’s kind of like a herbal scent and is not too overpowering which is a plus. Apart from this factor, this product does a pretty good job of reducing hair breakage.

The conditioner has a rich and creamy texture and did not make my hair feel oily. Both the products did not weigh my hair down after using them which is a plus.

The anti-breakage line also has a hair mask which you can apply for 20 minutes after using the shampoo & conditioner.

Final Verdict?

Overall, does a great job at helping to reduce hair breakage. Definitely, a great product for people who are looking for anti-breakage hair products as well as who are looking to switch to cruelty-free products.

Price: $10.99 on the Desert Essence website. Right now it’s priced at $7.69. (It’s a tad higher than many drugstore brands but considering it’s Cruelty-Free, Vegetarian and has better-for-you products like Jojoba oil, aloe, shea butter etc. I will say it’s worth it)
