Miessence Organics Desert Flower Shampoo


Pros: safe, smells great, all natural, no tears for children

Cons: a bit watery

This is a wonderful all-natural and organic shampoo that has a great safety rating on the EWG Cosmetics Safety Database.  It is gentle enough even for babies and I use it on my children with no tears!  It has a very mild, pleasant aroma and lathers and rinses well.  The only downside is it is a bit expensive for a shampoo, but it is made with over 70% organic ingredients (the other ingredients are mineral or not botanical so it is not certified organic). It is so much better than any of the other natural shampoos, and I have tried almost all of the EWG Rated shampoos.  Miessence is an excellent green company with integrity and an eco-conscious mission. 

Miessence Organics Desert Flower Shampoo

Desert Flower Shampoo (Normal to Dry Hair) Description: Ultra mild for daily use. Great for babies and children! Extremely mild Yucca juice and polyglucose gently cleanse the hair. Panthenol moisturises the hair. Organic avocado oil restores lustre and hydrates dry and damaged ends. Organic herbs add sheen and body to your hair. Why: You may experience a hair detox for the first few weeks if you've been using hair care with silicone derivatives. Your hair may feel knottier and dryer than usual during the detox phase. Be assured, it will improve. Clarifying Hair Rinse may assist with stripping your hair of chemical residue and Protect B5 Hair Repair will help to detangle and smooth your hair. How: Massage a small amount onto scalp and allow shower to rinse suds through length of hair. Repeat. Second wash will lather more than the first. Follow with Shine Herbal Hair Conditioner. When: When necessary.

  • What is the pH of your shampoos?

    The pH of Miessence shampoos is between 5.5 and 6.5.

  • Do your shampoos strip synthetic hair colours and dyes?

          Some people have reported hair dye being stripped from using the Lemon Myrtle Shampoo. But others have claimed that they use both our shampoos on dyed hair without any stripping of colour. We, therefore, cannot say categorically whether it will strip colour from the hair. We believe it is dependant on the hair dye used.


  • I've just started using the shampoo and I'm noticed more hair loss than usual. Why is this?

    Our products are loosening the sebum plugs that house the hair follicles in the scalp, which may have been blocked / clogged by previous product usage (especially those containing mineral oils). This means that, for a little while, you will notice more hair than usual falling out. The hair that grows back will be healthier and stronger.

  • I've just started using Miessence hair care, but it is not lathering. Why?

          The shampoo probably won't foam for you until you eliminate the plastic coating on your hair from past hair care products. This can be done by either:

    1. time - using our products until it happens (slow)
    2. detoxing your hair with a few baths of 1 cup sea salt, 1 cup apple cider vinegar 2 cups bicarb soda (hop in the bath and swish your hair around in it)
    3. making a paste of bicarb soda and our shampoo and washing your hair with it a few times
    4. making a paste of clay (one of our masks - or just clay from the health food store) with our shampoo and washing your hair with that a few times.

    While your hair is detoxing, it may feel dry and knotty. This is normal, as the hair is eliminating the silicone derivatives (dimethicone, cylcomethicone, any chemical with ...'cone' in it) from your hair. Once they have been dissolved, you will find our shampoo foams and you hair is silky and soft.

  • Whilst my hair is detoxifying, it's really dry and wiry, what can I do?

          Pre-treat your hair at night before washing. Massage organic coconut oil into the hair before you go to bed and wash out the next morning. Be sure not to use so much that the pillow cases end up a mess!
