A Suite of Hair Products From Suave Professionals

The regular line of Suave hair products are known for, well, being “inexpensive.” If you really need some shampoo and only have a fistful of change you dug up from your sofa, Suave is where it’s at. I’ve gone that direction more than once in my life.

But, Suave also has a Professionals line. While you can still get Suave Professionals at the drugstore, they cost just a smidge more and they work much much better than you’d expect.

From the current Suave Professionals line, I’ve tried the Dry Shampoo Spray, Vibrant Sine Spray and Volumizing Root Boost Spray. And all three are just $2.99 each.

Let’s see if these are worthy of the moniker “Professionals.”

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray

Compares to Rene Furterer.

SuavePro02I was really excited to find a dry shampoo at the drugstore. That sure is a rare find. Normally you have to go to a specialty store and pay at least $10 on per can.

The cool thing about dry shampoo is that it can wick away the grease from your unclean hair, restoring it so well that it looks like you just washed it. At least, that’s the goal.

And Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray really lives up to that description. I was very impressed with how it immediately de-greased my notorious Day Two hair. You need barely any of the powdery spray to get the job done, so one can will last for quite a while.

This dry shampoo smells of tart peaches. I got a lot of compliments on the way my hair smelled once I sprayed this in there. Even though I liked the way it smelled, I was a bit taken aback by how strong it was. You could smell it from clear across the room.

For these reasons, I give the Dry Shampoo Spray a…

Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Spray

Compares to Sebastian.

SuavePro03Just sitting on a counter, the Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Spray looks like a squirt bottle full of water. But if you pick it up and shake it, you get a typhoon of shimmer swirling through the bottle.

I was worried that maybe it would add a bunch of unrealistic sparkle to my hair, making me look like I just got back from a night club that featured glittery confetti spraying onto the dance floor.

I was in luck, though. I sprayed the shimmery concoction on my hair and, instead of a sparkly mess, I got a nice, healthy shine. It worked especially well on my bangs, which I keep straight instead of curly like the rest of my hair.

Other than the shine, this spray doesn’t do anything else to help your hair.

It smells sweet and slightly perfumey, but not strong.

Suave Professionals Volumizing Root Boost Spray

Compares to Matrix.

SuavePro04As the name suggests, spray the Suave Professionals Volumizing Root Boost Spray at your roots. Lift up sections of hair and spray right at where the hair grows.

The directions insist on using a hair dryer to heat up the sprayed sections and activate the product. And these directions are spot on. I tried the spray just on its own and it didn’t add any volume. But when I blasted it with hot air, it added quite a bit of volume.

Keep in mind, though, blow drying your roots and flipping your hair around will add volume anyway, even without a spray. Still, this did have good staying power. And it smelled lightly of sweet fruit.

  1. The dry shampoo sounds great. Too bad the scent is so strong, though.

  2. hmm, I wasn’t too happy with my Tresemme dry shampoo, so I may have to check out this one from Suave!
