Review: Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi everyone! Sorry this post has taken me so long to get up. I purchased this shampoo and conditioner about a week ago at Walgreens. I paid under $4 each for both. There is an entire line of the new Keratin Infusion products: shampoo/conditioner, dry shampoo and a 30-day smoothing kit. I knew I only wanted to try the shampoo/conditioner. Plus that, the treatment can only be used on a very small group of people (no bleach, color treated, etc.). There are two types of shampoo/conditioners - one for color treated (the one I have) and a dry/damaged version. THE SHAMPOO CLAIMS (back of the bottle): This lower sulfate, pH-balanced shampoo, formulated with KERALOCK technology gently cleanses to help keep color vibrant, infuses keratin inside the hair fiber and provides lasting smoothness. -vibrant hair -frizz control for up to 48 hours -smooth & manageable hair LATHER: I don't know about you, but lather is very important to me. I know sulfate-free and lower sulfate shampoos don't lather much but I still like it to. This one does. Not a ton but enough for me to feel like it's cleaning my hair. My hair actually felt smooth while rinsing. I can normally tell if I'm going to like a shampoo during the rinse stage.
THE CONDITIONER CLAIMS (back of the bottle): This deep nourishing conditioner formulated with KERALOCK technology, infuses keratin and seals the hair cuticle from the outside. Enriched with UV complex to help prevent color from fading. -long lasting color -frizz control for up to 48 hours -smooth & manageable hair *Shampoo & conditioner system vs. Kerastase Reflective Bain Miroir shampoo & Chroma Reflect Masque. MY OVERALL THOUGHTS: I like it! My hair was very smooth after using both products. I only wash my hair every 2-3 days and I would say it stayed smooth for the entire time. I have semi-wavy frizzy hair that is color treated. It's also pretty fine even though I have quite a bit of hair. I try not to blow dry my hair if possible. Both times I used these products, I didn't blow dry. My hair had very little frizz after using my usual styling product (Redkin Velvet Gelatin). While these are great smoothing products, they might weigh down fine or thinning hair. Just something to keep in mind.

  1. THank you for posting this review as I was VERY curious as to how well it would work without using the smoothing kit. I'm so impressed with Suave lately! I adore their dry shampoo from this line as well! :) Much love, Shawna
