I grew up in a family that only ever bought Pantene Pro-V or Herbal Essences shampoos. But when I got to college I realized I had no money and needed to tighten my belt. Then I graduated from college and realized I needed to tighten my belt even more… because I still had no money but now I had college student loans to pay.
Enter Suave shampoos and conditioners.
The price speaks for itself. Suave’s Daily Clarifying conditioner costs $1.99 for 22.5 ounces. That’s $0.09 / ounce!
But the quality wasn’t great. My hair needs weightless moisturizers that will keep frizz at bay and ensure shine without looking oily. It’s a lot to ask, and though the Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing conditioner might do the trick, my budget just does not allow for a conditioner that costs over $1 / ounce. Alas.
A few months ago, I saw a neat Suave Professionals commercial on TV. Salon stylists were given unidentified shampoos and conditioners to use on their clients. They raved about the quality of the products and were then surprised to find out they’d been using Suave Professionals. Suave?! Really?!
If you’re interested, you can watch this and their other commercials at Suave.com/video.
Granted they’re likely actors paid to look surprised. But the commercial really caught my attention and when my conditioner ran out, I bought a 14.5 ounce bottle of Suave Humectant conditioner for $2.29 or $0.16 / ounce.
Though it’s a little more expensive than the regular Suave conditioners, it’s still significantly less than Herbal Essences’ Hello Hydration at $0.32 / ounce or Pantene Pro-V’s Daily Moisture Renewal at $0.40 / ounce.
And it works.
Suave Professional’s Humectant conditioner moisturizes my hair, keeps it frizz-free and manageable, and makes it look full and shiny without looking oily.
