This shampoo is supposed to moisturize as well as Nexxuss Therappe. I've used both, and for the price I'll use this one. The only sulfate is Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is supposedly milder than SLS.
It smells lovely and I just need a nickel sized dollop for my shoulder length curly hair. It rinses cleanly and my hair does not feel stripped at all; it also does NOT cause my hair color to fade. I paid $1.67 for the 12 oz bottle; seriously, if I like it this much, why would I try something more expensive?
I've also used the color protection series and black raspberry & white tea, and have success with all of them.

I waited a long time to try this shampoo. For some reason, I always wait a long time after a new product comes out before I purchase it. Mostly because I want to see how long it takes before other people try it, the manufacturer works out the kinks (no pun intended, lol) and re-launches it.
I went back and looked at reviews from 2010 and I think the shampoo may have been reformulated, so it was time to buy. $2.19 at my local market. I've never purchased the Nexxus product as a comparison because I don't believe in spending a lot of money on shampoo. It's soap.
It's got a ton of silicone in it, which is fine because my hair is long, coarse and dry. I washed my hair with it twice, rinsed well. I did the squeak test, but there was no squeak, which always lets me know if there is enough moisture left in my hair.
I will buy this again. It gets my hair clean, does not dry it out, a little goes a long way and it lathers very well.

I saw this at Wal-Mart when I was looking for a new shampoo to buy because I had recently died my hair again. I used some Suave products in the past and my sister told me that this kind was really good when she used it before.
When I first used it, the shampoo went on and my hair became so tangled and took forever to come through. After I washed it all out and it dried, my hair seemed fine and soft. The next day though, it was very dry, my scalp itched so much. I have used it several times and it still ends up with the same result the next day. I will not buy this product again.

works great for me, no compliants. doesnt strip my hair and cleans it well.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Dark Hair: Black, Relaxed, Medium Eyes: Brown
I like this product along with the conditioner. I have relaxed hair and it leaves my hair very soft. I also have the shea butter and almond line, but they don't leave my hair as moisturized as this line.

The smell was nice, but it wasn't moisturizing at all like it claimed. It didn't make my hair feel more dry than normal, but it certainly didn't make it feel less so. My problem is that something in the shampoo irritates my scalp like crazy. As soon as my hair starts air drying, it feels like my scalp is on fire. It actually made my scalp raw and even made it peel in some spots. It took me several uses to realize that I didn't suddenly have dandruff! My best guess is that whatever they're using for fragrance is what my skin doesn't like.

I had previously had the mind set that the most expensive hair products always worked best. After trying out the Suave professionals Humectant moisture, I have changed my mind. The stuff is increduble; non- greasy, prevents and repairs damage, and moisturizes as promised.

Very happy with all of Suave's Professional line. The shampoos don't build up on your hair and the conditioners work well and rinse clean. I have been really happy using the Voluminous, Humectant, and occasionally the Smooth one. Love the price ($2 or so) and the big bottles last a long time. And they smell good! Not like fruit!!

I had tried Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo when it was first introduced several years ago, and was less than impressed. About the only good thing about it was the scent, which was a ringer for the Nexxus Humectress that it was supposed be identical to. Unlike the Nexxus Humectress original, the Suave knock-off left my hair feeling like straw. I used it twice and used the rest as hand soap!
Fast forward a few years. For some reason, I bought this shampoo again, maybe because I have been so impressed with the Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter formula. The Professionals Humectant shampoo has evidently been reformulated since I tried it first, because now, it truly is a great substitute for Nexxus' Humectress. It leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth, but so far, doesn't seem to build up. I took off a lippie because I'm pretty sure that silicone is to thank for my soft silky hair, but at any rate, I'd recommend this shampoo highly.

I dont know why other users are saying this dries out their hair, it probably works different on everyone.
I have damaged/colored dry fine hair, i use heat styling and tease often. At the end of the day I need something that will take off my freeze hairspray and clean my hair, but not dry it out. I've tried a bunch of brands, Aveeno, John Freida, a few other brands from Sally's.
This definitely did not dry out my hair at all. I am satisfied I will be repurchasing huge bottles of this. After conditioning, my hair doesn't feel like straw.

I've been to cosmetology school, and generally always use professional hair care products. I can honestly say that this shampoo works better than the Matrix smoothing shampoo and conditioner that was my previous go-to. I live in a big city, and my hair gets pretty gross from the pollutants in the air, and I have a lot of damage from using thermal styling tools. Because of this, I need something that will cleanse my hair and nourish it at the same time. The shampoo is mild enough to not completely strip your hair, and the conditioner is thick and really softens your hair. You can also coat your hair in it and leave it in for a length of time as a deep conditioner. It smells amazing (if you like a light vanilla-ish coconut smell) and I bought the huge bottles for about $2.50. The packaging is fine, not particularly cute. It would be great if the larger bottles came with a pump. I would recommend it to anyone who regularly uses expensive professional products but are looking for something cheaper that will do the job. :]

Okay, I have fine, long, color-treated hair with a greasy scalp. If I use clarifying or clear shampoos, my hair gets crunchy and dry feeling. Most shampoos for dry hair leave my hair flat and dirty looking. This one so far has been very good. My hair feels very soft, frizz-free and smells delicious. It doesn't look dirty or flat either. Hopefully, it won't build up over time but right now, I think it's a great shampoo. I need less conditioner now too.

Excellent product for the price. Never used Nexxus before but would definitely choose Suave over other average priced drug store brands.

I'm on my second bottle of this stuff and will be buying more in the future. Gets rid of the frizzies so well that I don't even need to use conditioner.

So I picked up this shampoo along with the conditioner because I wasn't wanting to spend alot on shampoo... Big mistake. This stuff is the absolute worst shampoo ive ever used. My hair was falling out everywhere. After blow dryin the bathroom floor was covered with my hair along with my pillow and car seat and everything I touched. And it wasn't just a few strands it was coming out in clumps. Thank god I have really thick hair so it never showed. So Yeah it smells good, like a coconut type of smell and it makes your hair soft but what's the point if your Losing your hair. So after switching my hair went back to normal. Spend an extra dollar or so and buy anything besides this shampoo.

I originally bought this product because I have dry, frizzy hair and I thought with the new advertisements that it really would be a good product. No, I was wrong. The bottle says, "Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo for Dry Hair" it literally does give you dry hair, even though it says it will "moisturize as well as Nexxus" - yeah right. I will not be buying this product again and the matching conditioner doesn't do anything either. Its watered down and you have to use A LOT of it to even make your hair soft. My hair feels dry, tangled, and stiff after I shampoo and condition. I even let my hair air dry most of the time and my hair is just as dry and frizzy as ever.
Even though this product is inexpensive, don't bother wasting a few dollars. I was not impressed.

Note to self: never trust a "moisturizing shampoo (that in itself is a bit of a gimmick) that has sulfate as one of the main ingredients, and one of the few actual humectants (ex. honey) as the few.
Horrible product. Dried my hair so bad, like any other Suave shampoo. I didn't help that it tangled it up too.
I can imagine this MIGHT work for those with greasy hair, as a humectant traps in moisture that is already existent, rather than creating it.
I will try this with a pre-poo (prepping my hair with products that moisturize/protect before applying shampoo), and see if it will retain the moisture or not.

PROS: Very inexpensive. I would say this is just a little bit less moisturizing than the Nexxus "Therappe" that this is a dupe for. Pleasant and somewhat soft scent. Overall, a good dupe.
CONS: There really isn't one. If you like Therappe, I think you'll like this too.
ALTERNATES FOR VERY DRY HAIR: Weightless Conditioning Shampoo by Motions (found in the African American hair section in my Walmart). Organic Root Stimulator's Olive Oil Shampoo (found in the African-American section at my Walmart) is much gentler.

I use both the shampoo & matching conditioner on 2c/3a red, normal, virgin hair.... various lengths because I've been using it so long :) I keep changing, trying other things based on reviews & because I get bored easily; & yet, before I'm halfway through the bottle of whatever new thing it is I"m trying, I miss my suave! I love the small bottles; the conditioner is turned up so it's all in the right end, & they're just the right size for my shower wrack. The scent is wonderful & lasts all day. My hair says "thank you" after every wash! This has turned into my HG after 8 years? of use. Only complaint is that it's getting hard to find anything but the huge bottles :( But, for the quality & price, I'll keep using until they quit making it!

I brought this because I was in need of a shampoo and I saw that they were on sale for 1.95 so I brought the shampoo. I love it! It works just like a highend salon shampoo and the scent smells so good. I cant quite pin point it but kind of like coconut I think. It makes my hair soft and shiny and smelling good. I was very pleased with it since I dye my hair and I straighten it all the time and it seems to have helped my hair so far. One night my SOS told me you smell good.. I told him it is my shampoo!! Yes i will buy this shampoo again!
