What They Say: Suave is rolling out the red carpet for the new Suave Professionals that works as well as top salon brands. The reformulated and redesigned Suave Professionals shampoos, conditioners and styling products feature salon-inspired packaging, new and improved formulas and fragrances, and deliver salon-proven performance.

Verdict: As creatures of habit, we feel comfortable in our little hair bubble, which means we generally don’t stray from the tried and true hair products we already know and already love. However, this was a fab opportunity to do just that and overall, we liked what we experienced.

The Suave Mousse and Lightweight Hold Hairspray were pretty good. We liked the mousse’s texture, although when we first put it in our hair it felt a bit greasy. Luckily, this did not translate after our hair was dry and our waves were a bit more defined than normal. As far as the light hold hairspray goes – the title says it all. It’s totally lightweight, so this is not for keeping that hair in place on a windy day. It’s just not that strong. Both of these products worked well, though they didn’t do anything magical to our hair. No need to throw your current brand away if you’re in love with it, but if you’re looking to branch out, give these a try.

The dry shampoo was what piqued our interest as who doesn’t love an excuse to skip a hair wash every now and then? After spraying the substance onto our roots and rubbing it in as instructed, we definitely noticed that our locks looked less greasy. They didn’t feel that way per se, but as long as nobody’s touching your mane then you’ll have nothing to worry about.

Across the board, these hair products win in the smell department. Our hair was delightfully scented after using them all so kudos to Suave for mastering this art.

I used Suave dry shampoo sprays for 12 weeks, & it also caused HAIR LOSS in me. I am absolutely positive this product caused it because during this time period I had absolutely no other changes in my lifestyle or product use. My parts became wider, the front corners of my hairline started to recede, & a bald patch started to form at the crown of my head. I discontinued use of this product & my hair is now filling back in. ALSO ladies- if you have hair loss & need to grow it back in, try taking daily: 5000mcg biotin, a multi-vitamin, 3000 mg fish oil, massage the scalp, try a natural thickening shampoo like Avalon Organics Biotin B-Complex Shampoo, do not brush or comb wet hair, avoid blow-drying & avoid keeping hair pulled tight as in ponytails.

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo caused major hair loss for me. At first I LOVED it, however after a few months I noticed that my hair was getting thinner and thinner, then I noticed balding patches on the areas where I mostly concentrated on using the dry shampoo. I have very oily hair so this was a god sent, now I am left with bald patches trying to figure out where to go from here. I went to a dermatologist who said that the dry shampoo sucks up the oil leaving it on your scalp therefore clogging your hair follicles making the hair fall out and stunting regrowth. As of today I am starting to use Nizoral shampoo which is for dandruff (I don't have dandruff, but the Dr told me this will help with regrowth because it will reopen the clogged follicles). I spoke to my friend who was also using the Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo (on my recommendation) and was complaining of her hair thinning. I just told her and she said that she started noticing the hair loss since she has been using the product. It may work at first, it may be a great price, but the lasting effects are unbearable. I am so self conscience now and can not wait for my hair to grow back. Please do not buy this product.

Suave Professionals gave me terrible dandruff, and my hair has never been drier! I've never had dandruff before in my life, and I'm sure it's the shampoo that caused it. I only continue to use it to save money before I go back to my old shampoo.

"Piqued" your interest, not "peeked". Kathryn, you're wonderful. Thanks for all you do for us.
