Drunk Elephant does skincare really well and the Drunk Elephant Hair Care line should be no exception!

Drunk Elephant launched hair care a few weeks ago so there are a few reviews that have already been generated on Sephora.

Also there are some Instagrammers that have received free Drunk Elephant Hair Care products that have provided their own reviews.

This article will talk about the new Drunk Elephant Hair Care line.

Now that Drunk Elephant is owned by Estee Lauder, there are some people who used to love the brand that are more skeptical. This happens when a bigger brands takes over a smaller indie brand.

Cocomino Glossing Shampoo

Cocomino Glossing Shampoo

The Cocomino Glossing Shampoo is made for colour treated hair. Because it is sulfate free, it won’t strip or damage hair.

It protects against split ends and breakage.

Because it doesn’t have sulfates, the shampoo won’t lather as much as you’re probably used to. Sulfates are what cause the bubbles in shampoo so you don’t need your shampoo to bubble up to know you are getting a clean scalp!

The Cocomino Glossing Shampoo is great for every hair type! Whether you have fine or super curly, according to Sephora, everyone can use the Drunk Elephant Cocomino Glossing Shampoo.

The reviews on Sephora regarding the Glossing Shampoo are very positive! 88% of people really loved the shampoo and some didn’t think that they would.

A positive review on Sephora is from beautycode who says:

Finally some beautiful, well formulated hair products with no essential oils or fragrances! Gentle for the scalp, perfect for anyone who cares about products made with integrity. Do not expect the shampoo to foam up so much, cleansing agents can be drying and this product is trying to avoid that. Slight almond smell (similar to l’Occitane but lighter). Price point is good for the quality. Good job Drunk Elephant!!

There is a mediocre review on Sephora from rcai that says:

“I’m a huge drunk elephant fan and immediately purchased this whole line when it dropped. I love my shampoo and conditioner from Paul Mitchell’s Marula line so I was stoked so see that they would share some of the same ingredients. I am however really underwhelmed with this product especially. I think the conditioner is a bit better, but my hair barely feels clean. I wouldn’t repurchase this personally but it is not the worst shampoo I’ve ever used either. “

As you can see, there aren’t really horrible reviews of the Drunk Elephant Cocomino Glossing Shampoo.

If you’re looking to switch up your hair care routine I would highly suggest this shampoo!

Cocomino Marula Cream Conditioner

The Cocomino Marula Cream Conditioner goes with the Cocomino Glossing Shampoo.

The great thing about the Cocomino Marula Cream Conditioner is that it contains plant oils and butters to naturally smooth out the hair.

The most exciting ingredient is the Marula Butter which is straight from the Marula plant. It contains antioxidants and peptides that help provide shine and hydration in hair follicles.

The Coconut amino acid blend helps provide the shine with the alkaline of the coconut.

There is also the Mongogo Oil rich with vitamin E that is a super moisturizing agent.

It is a lightweight liquid that is the same as the shampoo: does not contain sulfates or silicone.

It’s a cream conditioner so if you have fine hair you may want to apply it to the ends only.

The Cocomino Conditioner also fights against frizz because of the amount of soothing agents in the ingredients mentioned above.

T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub

You can’t have hair care without scalp care! Does your scalp get super itchy at times?

The T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub is a gentle way to clean your scalp!

How it works is that it uses AHA and BHA blends to dissolve dead skin cells that can build up over time.

It can be used on any hair type and protects against damage and split ends.

As you can see from the image, the T.L.C. Happi Scrub comes in a squeeze bottle applicator so you can get close to your roots.

It’s also a lightweight scrub so you don’t have to worry about getting sores on your scalp by too much scrubbing.

A positive review on Sephora comes from calgarybonnie who recommends this product:

“I have the worst scalp in the worst. It’s a bloody godsend that I’m blonde, otherwise you would see a bazillion flakes. When I shake my head while wearing dark clothes the amount of flakes that wind up on my outfit is genuinely embarrassing. Not even three weeks in the Maldives fixed it. I’ve been desperately uncomfortable for years- ever since the Kerastase scalp treatment was taken off the market. Two uses of this and the situation has improved DRAMATICALLY. All the red scaly patches have stopped being red and the scales are coming off without anything growing in its place. I found it easy to apply and easy to rinse, though I will note my city has really hard water so everything rinses out way faster than it would in other cities.”

Another review on Sephora from aanghel says that it’s pretty good but not good for people with long hair:

“I’m a fan of DE which is why I tried this. It comes on very sandy but don’t panic, the micro sandy beads seem like they melt if you leave them on long enough and massage them in. I can see why women with a lot of hair and long hair might not get all the product out of their hair, but I have a bob haircut and thin fine hair so I had no problem washing it off. It felt cooling for a hot second but I didn’t feel the tingle. I’ll continue using weekly to see if it has visible changes on my hair health but for now I can only say it felt good and I mostly tried it bc I like DE products. “

As you can see, if you struggle with scalp issues and have tried Keratase you may really like this product. It seems to be more gentle than the other scalp cleansers.

Wild Marula Tangle Spray

Going back to Marula oil which is a staple in the Drunk Elephant line, the Wild Marula Tangle Spray is a leave in that you spray after the shower.

It also acts as a heat protector before you use heat styling such as flat ironing or blow drying.

The Tangle Spray contains a Fermentoil Complex that helps protect from the entire root to tip.

The Marula Oil provides shine with the additives of Omega 6 and Omega 9 into the hair shaft.

There are also more oils included in the Wild Marula Tangle Spray that helps give hair a perfect shine.

All hair types can use the tangle spray. However, if you have fine hair like me you may want to aim away from the actual roots so that you don’t end up with oily hair.

A positive review on Sephora from walker17 is:

“Smells amazing and makes my hair so soft and shiny. My hair gets so tangled and this helps me brush right thru it.”

A more negative review on Sephora comes from GraceG9:

“I LOVE every DE skin product but was super disappointed with this. Very small amount for what you pay for – a lot of other products out there that leave your hair feeling much softer i.e the Luseta Marula Oil”

The negative review is not the norm as most people LOVE the Tangle Spray.


I would say, if you’re looking for a detangler, gives this one a try! The good news is that Sephora is very open to returns so if you find that it doesn’t work well you can always take it back.
