REVIEW -- Suave Scalp Solutions Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of Suave's newest Scalp Solutions for you! They are an anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner that nourish your hair with coconut and shea butter, while fighting flakes and leaving your hair healthy and shiny.

While I can't say that I currently have "flaky" dandruff (but I definitely have in the past), I've noticed that winter has been a little harsh on my scalp and I had some excess buildup that didn't really need to be on my head. Needless to say, I was really pleased when I received these in the mail!

The first thing I noticed about the products was the packaging. It's very sleek, and I like how the shampoo and conditioner bottles are flipped so that you don't accidentally confuse them in the shower. The second thing I noticed was the smell. It's AMAZING: like a rich, creamy coconut. It's strong, but not overpowering and not distinctly coconut either. I don't quite know how else to describe it. The scent also stays with my hair for most of the day, which is practically unheard of for me.

And the third thing I noticed when I went to use the shampoo for the first time was its consistency. It's rather unlike any shampoo I've used before. It's thick, but not unpleasantly so, and it's not unmanageable to work with. Instead, it's kind of like a sunblock. I think that comparison is aided by the fact that it smells like coconut.

The Suave Scalp Solutions Shampoo has a nice, rich lather, which I appreciate in my shampoo. I feel that it really cleans my hair and I don't have to wash my hair multiple times (even at its dirtiest!) to make it feel clean. The Scalp Solutions Conditioner is nice and thick as well. It detangles my hair well and makes it manageable without weighing it down or making it look greasy.

When I've used other dandruff shampoos in the past, they tend to strip all of the moisture and shine out of my hair and leave it dry and lifeless. I was thrilled to find that after using the Suave Scalp Solutions and drying and styling my hair, it is soft, shiny, and looks incredibly healthy. If I got a trim and had fewer split ends, I'd almost say that I have shampoo commercial worthy hair!

With repeated use, the excess buildup on my scalp has cleared up and I've noticed that I'm able to stretch my hair into second day hair now (!!!), most likely due to the oil that my scalp produces not getting trapped in that yuck.

However, ladies with color.. be warned. My purple and black dyes ran worse when I use the Suave Scalp Solutions Shampoo. They ran so much that my black has faded down to a much softer black, and my purple has faded out to some horrible ashy gray color... within less than a month. That could just be my hair, but I think it's worth noting. In all fairness though, the shampoo never promises to be color safe, but again.. I'd rather be upfront about everything I experience.

And now.. for the first time in the history of MandysSecrets... I HAVE A MAN-VIEW FOR YOU!

When I saw the coconut, I wasn't thrilled because I'm not a big fan of anything coconut. I don't really care that much about shampoo and I don't have a problem with dandruff, but Mandy wanted me to try this one to get a "man's perspective".. so I did because hey, I'm a good husband. The shampoo doesn't have an overpowering coconut smell, which made it better in my book. I think the shea butter probably helped to mellow it out. The shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel soft and clean. They don't seem to weigh my hair down or feel like there is any type of residue left behind. If I did have dandruff, I would definitely give this product another try to see if it would help it.

Overall, Hubby and I really like the Suave Scalp Solutions Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner. They have a nice smell that's not overpowering, and really do a great job of cleaning and conditioning your hair without drying out your scalp. Plus they make your hair very shiny and manageable. Again, take note of the products not being color-safe, but if you're having problems with dandruff.. I definitely suggest giving these products a try!

I have to admit that I've been very impressed with Suave as of late. They're really making great efforts to bring effective, higher quality products to consumers at an affordable price. I honestly can't wait to see what they launch next!

Chris and I are pleased to give the Suave Scalp Solutions 4.5 out of 5 stars!
RATING: 4.5 out of 5 STARS
