Not Your Mama's Suave - Product Review

Mom Central recently offered me the chance to review three Suave shampoo/conditioner types as well as mousse, hair spray and deodorant. I have to tell you, I have had such fun with them all!

Here’s a pic and list of what I recently received for review:

  • Travel size Suave Naturals Tropical Paradise invisible solid Deodorant.
  • Full size Suave Professionals color care Shampoo & Conditioner for protecting color treated hair.
  • Full size Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo & Conditioner for smoothing dry or frizzy hair.
  • Full size Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Shampoo & Conditioner for restoring shine for normal to dry hair.
  • Full size Suave Professionals Extra Hold Styling Foam.
  • Full size Suave Professionals Extra Hold Shaping & Finishing Spray.
Here is what I found:

As you are likely aware, Suave is a product that has been around for quite some time. It has a low price point and easy accessibility that can occasionally be a deterrent to some people. If you are a woman and especially a Mom though, Suave has focused their sites on you and how they can help you feel and be beautiful. You can check out for product information and more. Plus, on the site there is a Beauty Profiler, designed to help each individual with their needs.

They have hair, skin, and deodorant products for women as well as products specially designed for Kids and Men. And they have a money=back guarentee if you are not completely satisfied with their products.

Here is what I did like:

I loved the smell of each of the three shampoos. Their consistency was smooth and creamy and each one created a good cleansing lather. I felt they all cleaned my hair well without stripping the shine.

The conditioners each left my hair feeling smooth and silky. They too smelled wonderful and left my hair with additional shine and highlights.

An additional little thing that I like about the shampoo and conditioner bottles is that the shampoos all sit with the top upright while the conditioners have the tops facing down. When you are a blinking and rubbing your eyes andfumbling around in the shower, it makes it so easy to tell which product is which without having to read the label.

Suave Professionals Extra Hold Styling Foam is thicker than the usual mousse and as it has managed to tame my frizzies without weighing my very fine hair down too much, it will be replacing my current products. On top of that, it doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy. Way to go Suave!

The hairspray will be replacing my current product, it is that good. One day recently, my Mom commented on my hair and asked what I had done differently. The difference was I had used the Suave Professionals Extra Hold Shaping & Finishing Spray!!

In the past I have used Suave's deodorant and I have to admit, it just did not do the trick when it came to wetness and odor. Well with Suave Naturals Tropical Paradise invisible solid Deodorant, that is no longer true! I have already purchased a full sized version because not only am I in love with the Tropical smell but it controlled my wetness and odor as well or better than some of the much more costly versions on the market.

Here is what I didn't like:

Truthfully, I found nothing not to like. Each of the product at least met or exceeded my expectations.

Here is what I say:

Ladies, this is not your Mama's Suave of days past...oh no. This is a new and improved product line that I really do not see ow you can pass up. You don’t have to pay those high prices because the new Suave Professionals totally have your back both in the pocketbook and in quality products. I would recommend these products happily!

Since I am down here in the South, Summer is f-a-r from over so I want to share some great helpful hints to tame the flyaways and smooth the savage beast, especially to go along with these great products!

Help Your Hair Survive the Summer in Style with Tips & Tricks from Suave® Celebrity Hairstylist Luke O'Connor

Shine Through Summer

Chlorine from the pool can quickly turn hair dry and dull. Look for hair products specially-designed to infuse shine. Also, blow dry hair from roots to ends, making sure you do not ruffle your hair. By doing this, you’ll keep the cuticle of your hair lying flat, thus reflect more light, and producing more shine.

How to get the Shine: Suave Vibrant Shine Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated with silk amino acids to restore shine and luster to dull hair for bright, shimmering strands.

Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Don’t Let Your Hair Fall when Temps Rise!

Hot summer weather and humidity can cause your hair to lose its shape. Apply a little mousse to damp hair to add body and help control your style. For added fullness, flip your head over and blow dry the roots. When you flip your head upright, your hair will be at maximum volume.

How to get the Shape: Suave Professionals Extra Hold Mousse helps to lock in style for all-day hold and is great for hair that needs body and control.

Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Hold That Look

Heat and humidity can be tough to battle, and here’s where the right hairspray comes to the rescue. To keep a soft, full, long lasting look, use an extra hold hairspray and keep the can 8-10 inches away from your head while spraying all over. This allows the fine mist of spray to penetrate the roots and hold the hair in place.

How to get the Hold: Suave Professionals Extra Hold Hairspray helps to lock in style for all-day hold and helps to control fly-aways.

Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Make Summer Styling Smooth Sailing

Frizzies and fly-aways suddenly appear during the summer months with humidity at an all-time high. Achieving frizz-free hair starts in the shower with a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated to fight frizz. When blow drying hair, again be sure to blow dry from roots to ends to smooth the cuticle.

How to get rid of Frizz: Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner moisturizes and smoothes curly, frizzy or dry hair leaving it looking salon-smooth and healthy.

Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Fight the Fade

Have color-treated hair? Lock in your color and keep hair healthy during the summer by protecting your hair with products designed to fight the elements, such as color-protecting shampoos, waterproof gels, and UV protectors.

How to fight the Fade: Suave Professionals Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner has a gentle formula that nourishes and defends hair against harsh environmental elements and helps protect color from fading.

Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Here is to beautiful hair on all of us Beautiful Women and Mamas!!
