Default Is it just me or....

Is anyone else wondering what the heck is going on with the drugstore brands. Suave has gotten rid of their entire Aloe Vera and Mango & Peach hair care lines, not to mention they have reformulated their Milk and Honey so now the good stuff is towards the end of the ingreds list. Aussie has rehabbed their line and you won't be able to get Tizz no Frizz soon. And some of us still miss VO5's Pina colada and Blueberry smoothie. Is it just me or does it seem like the products many of us love for our curly/wavy hair are disappearing? It frightens me a little to think what these companies will do next.

I don't like the Suave reformulations, but I thought the Aussie changes were good. They took out cones from many of their conditioners. Where did you hear that Tizz no Frizz won't be available? I've seen it in the new packaging, and it's on the website.

I think the Tizz No Frizz has just been renamed as well as their other gels. Plus the Dual Gel+Water has been brought back and renamed as well.

Really? Thank you! I thought the Tizz No Frizz and the Gel & Water were gone. At least there is a light at the end of the tunnel. :dance:dance.gif

Is the Vo5 Strawberries n Cream condish a goner too? It's getting harder and harder for me to find.

I was wondering if the Salon Selectives line has met it's demise.

I know that line doesn't get talked about much on this board but I liked some of their products and haven't noticed it on the shelves anymore.

while it is true that other companies (suave, aussie, etc.) may be cutting down on the curly hair products, other companies such as garnier fructis and herbal essences have developed several new curly products.

Ya, lately the stores I go into are totally out of some things, and changing the set up of the stocks of their shelves. I'm wondering if this is b/c of the changing lines of products.

That being said, I can't find Suave Healthy Curls anymore and I'm dying to try to anti frizz cream. I loved that condish, and I love the way it smells.

If they ever decided to get rid of Suave Coconut there would be heck to pay!
