This is an excellent conditioner for co-washing. It's very inexpensive, which is great because you use a lot when you co-wash. It cleanses well and smells good. It rinses clean, and I like to use a higher quality follow up conditioner after the co-wash. Will repurchase again and again. Great alternative to Wen.
I love the smell and the slip for my natural coarse hair but even when I apply it to my hair and not my scalp, my scalp itches. I hate to let my suave go because of the price but the chemicals in this product are horrible for my scalp.
As a conditioner, this product worked fine. The consistency of the product was thick enough to work on my long, curly type 3B hair. However, the strong, sickly sweet, synthetic strawberry smell was overwhelming. I couldn't stand having the scent on my hair all day. I started using it to shave my legs instead. I prefer the Coconut conditioner hands down over this scent.
I'm not gonna lie, i thought because of how cheap this is, it would suck. WRONG! i have NEVER EVER EVER had my hair feeling so soft! this in combination with the shampoo is heavenly. loooovvveee iittt.
I use this for CO washing as well. I just started about 4 days ago after reading reviews for the product. Since it's cheap, I decided to give this and the "co washing" a try. Man am I glad I did! I didn't know how well it would work out since I have caucasian, mildy wavy hair that is dry on the ends and CAN get oily at the roots. This stuff doesn't get too heavy at all and leaves the hair bouncy and looking pretty. Also, in this humid weather we've been having it has totally cut down on the frizz and my hair stays straight now. I love this!!! Give CO washing a try people!! I probably won't buy this scent again since it's kinda BLAH for me. I think I'll try Coconut next.
Great for CO washing for me. I usually don't even use another condtioner afterwards. Detangles well and lots of body. Scent is not too strong, which is the case with some other Suave conditioners. I rotate a few conditioners and I don't really have build up with anything that way.
Suave Strawberry probably won't be that impessive as a rinse out conditioner after shampoo for processed or dry hair, because it's very light.
I really like this conditioner. At first I thought it was too wimpy, but I found if I use a generous amount all over my hair it leaves my hair soft and shiney without build-up. I had usually used conditioners on the middle and ends of my hair for fear of being too heavy and greasy on my roots. That is not the case here. It's worth a try. Update 4/18/08: I wrote the review after about two or three weeks of use because I was so excited something worked for me for that long. Well, it just stopped working. I gave it a rest for several days and then used it again today. All I got was dry, frizzy, flat, hair. I don't know how a conditioner can just stop working but this one did. Makes a great shaving cream though, so all is not lost. Update again 2/21/09: After reading a review on Aussie's Moist shampoo where it said she uses this conditioner with it, I thought "hmmm". I NEVER would have thought to use it with moisturizing shampoos, but it really works! I've been trying this out with Pantene's Moisture Renewal shampoo for about a week now and I like the results so far. My hair is long, dry but fine, so maybe someone with thicker hair needs more of a heavy duty conditioner, but for me it's great.
I buy a lot of products based on scent and this was one of them.
It *does* smell artificial, but lovely in its strawberry sweetness. However, like most Suave conditioners, I find it doesn't really moisturize my hair or help to detangle. *Unlike* most Suave conditioners, it's one redeeming value - it's scent, doesn't stay in my hair.
Would not repurchase.
A very nice, light conditioner for shorter hair that is not prone to tangles. It is a little runny, but I hate thick conditioners as they leave build up. The new Suave bottles are great, they have flat wide tops so that they can be sat upside down in the shower. The scent is very fake and reminds me of strawberry fruit snacks. A decent product for the price.
I have dry, chemically treated hair. I bought this product on a whim in hopes of finding a new conditioner to co-wash with. I got NO slip, NO moisture and seemed to slightly tangle my hair. I even had to add another conditioner in the hopes of more slip but to no avail. It smells good in the store but weird in the shower. I was so optimistic about this product too, but it gets a thumbs down from me.
