Honest reviews


Never had split ends like this

Like the other reviewers, I loved how this product made my wavy hair soft, smooth, and manageable. Then, I began to notice my ends were terribly split. I am a stay at home mom, and do not heat style often (even when I did my ends never looked so frayed) and have not dyed my hair in months. Also, I have not used any other new products on my hair. So, I was surprised at the splits, but figured I was just due for a cut. I had to cut off about an inch. That was a couple of weeks ago. For several days I did not use the Suave Keratin Leave-In. Out of sight, under my sink, I had forgotten about it. I kept checking my ends (I’ve been growing my hair out for some time and wanted to be sure I wasn’t going to have to cut more) and they looked great, freshly cut. Then the weekend comes around and I pull out the leave-in and use it maybe three times. One week later, and my hair is more frayed than before my cut. It’s even multi split on newly cut in layers. I’m TICKED. I just read the horrible reviews for the smoothing treatment when I came here to leave this review and feel so sorry for those ladies and so glad I didn’t try it when I saw it in the store next to the leave-in. I’d have to cut off atleast another two inches to get rid of the damage this had done and I’m not sure the hair wouldn’t just keep breaking from there.

Not so good…

I’ve been using this product for a little over a week now and while it initially made my hair look silky-smooth it is now making it look greasy. I have used it in combination with the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion shampoo and conditioner for colored hair and followed all instructions on the bottles. My hair is now very flat, straight and oily. I have also noticed some split ends forming. For reference I have very thick, color treated hair that is shoulder length, layered and normally a little wavy. In addition, this leave-in conditioner has a very strong chemical smell to it (as do the shampoo and conditioner). I will not continue using any of the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion products – I guess you really do get what you pay for.

He usado este acondicionador por solo 2 semanas y estoy muy contenta con los resultados. Mi cabello queda completamente suave y es muy facil de peinar.

Excellent on 4B hair. A little DAB will do ya!

The directions say to apply a ‘dime-sized’ amount. Of course, on my 4b hair, I thought…no way! I better put at least twice that much. It was NOT necessary!The serum glided over my curls (this is the first ‘leave-in’ I’ve used that has the consistency of a creamy conditioner). And it smells incredible! No tangles, just amazing shine. I’ll post back after its dry. Yes, I was so excited about how it felt on my hair that I’ve written this review before my hair is dry!A Few Hours Later: Well, the hair is dry. The smell is amazing. My hair feels really soft and the curls are springy.

Maude Comstock, WI

Reformed snob

This is an outstanding product! I stumbled across it (along with another Suave Professionals conditioner,) rather by accident, and the great reviews convinced me to give it a try, despite my prejudice against "cheap" names like Suave.Many thanks to those previous reviewers- you were SO right!Seriously- if you have dry, chemically treated hair- try this. It is fantastic!

Beatriz Diggins, MO

Tried this on a whim and I love it!

I love their dry shampoo so I decided to try this. Not only does it small great but you only have to use a tiny drop even for long hair and it takes care of my frizz so well! Even if you don’t use it for heat protection, this product is a great light weight frizz control!

Laura Williamsport, KY

Silky smooth

I have tried every drug store leave-in conditioner out there and this one is the best. I have a ton of long, dark, wavy hair, which is prone to frizz. It makes my hair so soft but still keeps it light. The smell is amazing too. All the sudden I can’t find it in stores anymore and had a mini meltdown but was relieved to find the 3 pack here on Amazon. For the price, this is the last leave-in I’ll ever use (as long as they keep making it).

Better as a leave-in, not for "heat protection"

This may be good for a leave in , defrizz product. But if you use heat tools ie. straight iron, curling iron etc I wouldn’t rely on THIS… I love many of the SUAVE pro products, they compare w/ high priced products w/often same ingredients for a much cheaper price ! But, when it comes to using HIGH HEAT tools, you need a really good protection product. For me, This fell short in that department . The Keratin infusion serum " smooth & shine" I also bought was a GREAT product though & I will cont. to purchase…

I bought this for my frizzy damaged hair & fell in love. I use it with the shampoo & conditioner as well as there shine product. My hair did a complete 180 and will never go back. This is a good price for saloon style hair! I would recommend this for anybody! I was concerned it was a waste of money since it was not expensive but it’s a huge bang for your buck!

Dana Big Wells, TX

Love it

I have a tick frizzy hair but after using this smoothing heat protective conditioner the hair looks like never before, so smooth for 48 hours , smell nice , I used always expensive product but not one give me this effect , it looks not greasy or dirty like other product, the hair looks fresh but smooth , this product include some soft of mica , adding extra glow effect to your hair , i got a lot of compliments , as everyone affected by the shimmer and healthy looking shine , i ordered 3 more of this product for later as I am using it every second day from now .. really excellent also for hair extensions it will bring them back to life ..just wash your hair with the smoothing shampoo , add the conditioner to the hair but avoid the roots , wait like 10-15 min before you straight your hair , the maximum effect of this product is visible after you straightened your hair , as the heat do the magic .. before it the hair are soft but not the way you will like .. also hot air drying will do the magic as long you use some heat .. if you have tick frizzy hair ( Indian, Malaysian, Asian, Latino), also great if you are about to make soft bouncy curls , it help forming the curls much better just feel the hair hydrated by touching, they don’t stick together like with other products but rater dynamic flowing with the movements, for this price it is the best deal ever !!!! I did not believe until I tried it out .. #1 for me

Rosalie Winter Haven, FL

I like it….

This has a clean fresh smell…not overwhelming. And conditions my hair well. I love keratin based products and this works really Good. Suave product line is really great for ethnic hair…keratin based products work great on ethnic (kinky/ coiled/ naturally curly) hair.

Keratin – Leave in Conditioner

This product is great. I love it and recommend it highly. It leaves my hair shiney, soft, and it blows in the breeze, not something a curly hair girl is used to. Great product. I still think it is horrible that Sauve took the chemical straightner off the market.

Gwendolyn Pomeroy, IA

I like the shampoo & regular conditioner in line.

I might like this but it’s hard to get past the over perfumed product that youput on your hair after you get out of the shower as a leave in…just before youblow dry. I like the scent if it wasa lot milder but it’s to overpowering as is.With three bottles it’s going to be a long time before I see the end of it. I’ll belooking to share with someone else as I don’t see my using it. Now afraid to try theserum in the same line too.First time use I ended up washing my hair to get it out instead of blow drying it.Tried it a second time and just added very little to wet hair and blow dried it.The smell seemed to become lighter after blow drying but still too much for mynose. I do not blow dry my hair every time as it’s fragile and hoped this wouldhelp with the heat damage. However even with the real light application I thinkit had some hope in that department. But getting into the enclosed space of a carjust after drying hair for a 2 hour drive…I found it was still too strong.PS: To be fair I am quite sensitive to fragrances and use no scent products likelaundry soap & softeners. If a no scent product is available that I use I go for it.So Suave…please make this product in a no fragrance version and I’d be glad togive it another trial. I’m not alone there are a lot of people who avoid prefumecounters and soap aisles for this very reason not to mention stop buying magazinesthat come with those horrid perfumed inserts.

beats the heat

I first had the opportunity to try this leave-in conditioner when I used the Suave Keratin infusion 30 day smoothing kit. They gave you a small tube of this to use after and continue on with for daily use. I have to admit, for a tiny tube, it lasted me a whole month, which I found amazing. That is because you only need a tiny amount to give you the amount you need (even with my long hair). I am out and now can’t wait to get more because I just love the way it made my hair so soft and silky. It smells very nice and goes on light-not thick and heavy. It leaves my hair looking great and doesnt make me feel like I have a lot of product in it. It also helps to maintain the sleek look from the keratin treatment. I like to apply it to damp, towel-dried hair and wait about 20 minutes before blow-drying to get the best results for me. Even on days when I do not have time to wait that long, I still get excellent results. I have also recommended this to friends and my sister because I think it is so fabulous. If you have had a keratin treatment or brazilian blow out, or even if you just use a lot of hair-damaging things like blow dryers and flat irons, this product is for you!

Not a very good heat protectant

I read the good reviews and bought it.pros:Softens hair when dampGreat for a detanglerConsSmells like cologne– could have done without the strong, manly smellNot sure how well it actually protects with heat- makes my hair hard and parched looking**UPDATE***After the initial “eww, my hair is now hardened” I put some oil in my hair for shine and moisture. After awhile, my hair softened up and when I showered later, it was more elastic and strong. I’m thinking the heat from my flat iron infused the keratin into my hair.Also, I noticed there are tiny sparkles in the creme. So if your hair seems shiny, this is probably why

Hair Frizz is fried

Details: Suave Keratin Infusion is for Frizzy and Unmanageable Hair. It offers advanced protection from heat damage, has frizz control for up to 48 hours, and smoothes and manages hair for easy styling.My Review: After washing hair, rub a dime sized amount of Suave Keratin Infusion all over your hair. Dry and style as usual. When using this product, I noticed how soft my hair was with a nice shine, and yet not so shiny that it looked like I sprayed it with shellac. My hair has always been extremely dry due to sun exposure. Not any more.Pros: The product says it is good for up to 48 hours, but I have found it will last longer than that. I know many women wash their hair more frequently, but just in case you have real busy weeks like I do, it will hold longer. My hair doesn’t experience the frizz unless I get it wet from watering the lawn, or of course from rain.Cons: If using this product as a leave in conditioner, I would recommend using a serum along with it. The combination will make each work better. If you are around any kind of mist, this product may not suit your needs.I give this a thumbs up because after more than 40 years of frizzy hair, its gone and tamed! For more on my review go to: […]

Great stuff

this leave in conditioner works really well and the price it right. leaves your hair smooth and shiny and not weighed down. I think it works as well as the expensive moroccan oil. Great stuff.

Best Leave-In Creme I ever used

And I have used a lot of them, this is by far the best. it is light, does not weigh your hair down, my hair feels silky and smooth for days whether I style it , blow dry it or use a flat iron. you all need to use a lit bit ( I have long, sick hair).

Causes product buildup over time

I added this Suave Keratin leave-in conditioner to my usual haircare routine a little over a month ago. I had hoped it would keep my hair shiny and help prevent split ends.Since I started using it I’ve steadily seen a decline in the appearance of my long dark hair. It felt coarse and began to look extremely dull. I don’t feel this product improved the look or condition of my hair at all – it made it much worse.I actually had to purchase a clarifying shampoo to get my hair back to normal. It was such a dramatic improvement after just one wash that I’ve stopped using this product entirely.
