Suave Naturals Aloe And Waterlily
 
Those of you who have tried it, do you like it or not?

I bought this thinking I would try it since I've read good things about aloe and the large bottle was on sale for a dollar.

I used it in the shower and tried to untangle my hair. I swear I could hear it screaming at me. I was horrible, I never have that hard a time untangling. It felt dry & brittle, like if I had just used shampoo and not put in any conditioner at all. :sad5:

For some reason I decided to put some in after I got out, no gel or anything else, just the conditioner. I let it air dry, and it came out with no frizz, and shiny (I'm rocking some not so smooth 3rd day hair today. I'd put up pictures otherwise). It wasn't as soft as it is normally, but still no frizz??? :dontknow:

Has anyone had anything similar happen?

I'm thinking of just buying another bottle of conditioner (my hair seems to really like the Suave Naturals Ocean Breeze, or the Coconut), and just using the aloe one for afterward as a type of replacement for gel (unless I notice that it is too drying even with the over condish).

What are your thoughts???

I use this when I start getting overconditioned. It doesn't really do anything special for me. I like the wild cherry blossom better.

I bought this last week, but haven't used it yet. Now I can't wait to try it as a leave-in!

Oops - sorry, double post.

I didn't like the Aloe & Waterlily at all. My hair felt like it had a nasty coating after using it. I really like the Tropical Coconut, Tangerine and Cherry Blossom.

That's my experience-the Suave naturals aren't so conditioning, but work very well as either cowashes or leave-ins. I've tried pretty much every scent and not even the coconut is moisturizing enough (for me) to use as a rinse-out co. I love the smell of the Water Lily & Aloe though :)

I LOVE the aloe and water lily! It makes my hair SO soft and shiny! Sometimes I wash with it, sometimes I use it as a leave in. Either way, I have great results with it.

Thank you, that's not a bad idea. I guess I'll use it for when I'm over conditioned. I'll keep using it as a leave-in in the mean time, and see how it goes...

If I get over conditioned, I just rinse, rinse, rinse and then run a hand full of Suave Ocean Breeze through and rinse again.......

I only like it as a co-wash. It is not moisturizing enough for a rinse out or leave in for my hair.

It detangles my hair very well, though.
