I picked Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner up on a whim after reading the glowing reviews here. I didn't dare be to hopeful, considering that I've never really liked any of the Suave shampoos or conditioners before.
This one I really like. It conditions my medium-thick, long curly hair without weighing it down, smells pleasant but not overpowering, and leaves my hair soft and silky.
The only thing I do not like about this conditioner is that it seems slimy or something when you rinse it out. It will actually make the shower floor slippery. Be prepared to rinse and rinse the shower after use...
I have thick long hair and it's hard to find a conditioner that doesn't leave my hair feeling like straw especially in winter. I LOVE this. Love the smell and the thick consistency. After I wash my hair with the Almond Shea Butter shampoo I slather this on wrap my hair in a bun clip it, then rinse it out at the very end of my shower. My husband has noticed a difference, saying how much shinier it looks. It does have some build up after awhile. I just use a deep-cleansing shampoo to remove it. My hair still looks and feels wonderful!
Dear sweet gawd, this stuff is a lifesaver. It really made a huge difference in my hair. I have course, natural african american 4a, 4b hair and this stuff just takes it from hmmm to hot damn. I also blow dry and straighten with Babyliss products, so I took a real big chance on a $3 item when I'm normally shelling out the 28 per bottle for Aveda dry remedy and I do have to say, this works better for me than the Aveda and Ojon products. I also use this as a co-wash (sulfates are just horrible for anyone's hair) and my hair is like night and day. I did a test, and shampoo'd my hair with the aveda dry remedy line, and Suave really blew it out of the park, so much so that I had to do my hair over with Suave to fix the mess aveda left. All in all, for cowashing, this product is a dream, and so is the Rosemary mint. And due to the great price, I buy both of them by the box of 32oz....best part.....8 bottles comes in at 24 bucks and I still have 4 bucks left for a mocha! :)
Have to agree with the review 2 below. The smell of this stuff is heavenly!! But it left my hair as if I had not used conditioner at all. My hair is fine, colored, frizzy. It is great for my 2 daughters' hair though. I will buy it for the kids and the smell.
I like the moisture my hair and scalp gets from this. I usually get flakes from dryness (not dandruff) in the winter and this takes care of them if I massage it on my scalp and leave it for a few minutes. It's inexpensive, so I can use as much as I need on my long thick hair. The scent isn't offensive or noticable once rinsed. My hair never feels coated or weighed down, even after repeated use without using a clarifying shampoo. I have repurchased this, and will continue to do so.
Turned my hair into tangled straw. It smells really good but doesn't moisturize my hair at all.
This conditioner is really nice! I rotate this with my aveda damage remedy to save some money. The smell is nice and it leaves my hair pretty soft. I do have to use more than the Aveda to get the same effect, but at less than $2, I don't mind.
Please see my comments for the accompanying shampoo. This conditioner did the job and the scent matched the shampoo. (But to be honest, I rarely encounter a conditioner that does something more than other conditioners.) I would repurchase in a pinch but would rather buy Aussie's 3-Minute Miracle, which I find a superior product.
Got this for a pretty awesome deal at Target and was eager to try it. Not really a fan of Suave but I've seen some of the reviews/ratings of this product and figured I'd give it a shot. For years I've been washing my hair every day and it's definitely taken the moisture out of my hair. I decided to start washing every other day and use this product (along with the shampoo) on the regular days when I don't want to use my pricier shampoo/conditioner. I've used this about 3 times and each time it has left my hair feeling heavy with buildup and gave me the nastiest flakes ever... it's so foul :( I was hoping that maybe it's due to the cold here on the East Coat but the flakes it leaves me is simply something I just cannot deal with... just got some anti-dandruff shampoo and will probably give this product another shot. Until then it gets only 1 lippy from me :(
Another amazing Suave product! I have fine hair (though lots of it) and this doesn't weigh it down. I have been using this in conjunction with Suave's Sleek shampoo for several months. I got my hair cut today and the hair dresser was raving about how healthy and shiny my hair was! Super cheap, super effective. The whole Professionals line is great!
