Even though I’m a beauty editor, I try not to be an elitist when it comes to the products I use. I’m a music snob to the bone, but a beauty snob-not so much. You can find me perusing the drugstore beauty wall at least once a month.
In fact, I recently wandered into the hair aisle, where two humongous green bottles caught my eye: Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. I can’t remember the last time I used a Suave product-maybe never-but I needed shampoo and conditioner, and I’ll try almost anything that prominently boasts almond as an ingredient.
Almond and shea butter are exactly what my dry hair needs, since they’re two of nature’s best moisturizers. The formulas are said to be just as effective as a certain salon-brand shampoo and conditioner that would cost about 25 times more money for the same amount. (I paid about $7 total for two 32-ounce behemoth bottles.)
But Suave doesn’t need to drop any names. I found out for myself that their Almond & Shea Butter duo definitely quenches my hair’s thirst and leaves it touchably soft. Even the snobbiest beauty editor can appreciate that.
