Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter

Sorry Bloggers for the delay! 

Thank you for being patient. I am not that busy anymore, so expect more reviews/swatches to come.

Product: Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner 

 $1.84 at Target (14.5 oz.)

Comparable to: Salon proven to moisturize as well as Aveda Dry Remedy (6.7 fl oz, $24.00)

Description as stated on website:

Moisturizing shampoo is infused with 100% natural almond and shea butter, which are known for their rich emollients. It replenishes as it cleanses leaving your hair well-nourished and beautiful.

My thoughts:
  I like this a lot. I have been using Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner for about 2 years now. Its good, but its pricey ($5.00 depending on where you buy it). I also use the Masque ($6.00) and the Intensive Daily Treatment Conditioner ($5.00). That gets pricey, very quickly.

The only reason why I chose that particular Dove was because it says it is good for people who straighten their hair every day and blow dry reduces breakage and split ends. 

However, this Suave shampoo and conditioner is a moisturizing line. If the hair is moisturizes, especially your ends for us hair straightening fanatics, your hair is less likely to break off which means less split ends and therefore, means your hair will grow longer.

For under $2.00 a bottle, this works better than my Dove. My hair feels softer, shiner and silkier. I have less frizz than i did with Dove. I don't think I'm going to go back to Dove. And the best part, i don't have to use all the extra things (mask and daily treatment conditioner).

FYI: Cruelty Free Companies and those to avoid

I was recently told that Sally Hansen (owned by Coty) tests their products on the eyes of rabbits. I was shocked!

Cruelty Free Companies (Do Not Test on Animals): Abercrombie & Fitch, Almay, Aveda, Bare Essentuals, Bath & Body Works, Conair, ELF Cosmetics, Eco Tools, Jane Cosmetics, LA Colors, MAC, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Victoria's Secret, wet n wild to name a few.

NOTE: I am not saying whether I approve of animal testing or not. This is just information that I am sharing. Regardless if you buy the products from either category is none of my business.
