Suave Conditioners OK as a leave-in?

JunyJuJunyJu Registered Users Posts: 495 Curl Neophyte
As I'm learning more about my hair and products, I'm slowly discovering that I can use some basic products for good results, specifically with conditioners. I quit using the Suave conditioners because of the silicones, but now that I know I won't die if I have a few cones here and there, I'm exploring more options in conditioners. I am currently using Aussie Moist, and it's great, but I go back to college in a month, and if I can use something cheaper, I know that'd be best.


Has anyone used the Suave conditioners as leave-ins? I don't mean the Naturals line that's silicone free, but the regular ones with all the different scents? Truth be told, that is my motivation in trying to use them. I absolutely adore the different smells they come in (strawberry and green apple are my faves), and if I can use them instead, I'd prefer that. Aussie is wonderful, but more costly, and I actually have grown tired of the scent occasionally.


Also, let me know if there are any gel combos that you used that didn't go well with these conditioners! I didn't see too many in the thread dedicated to this when it came to the Suave conditioners. I have Curls Goddess Curls and Spiral Solutions Firm Hold Gel.


Thank you! :smilebox:

    The Suave Naturals Juicy Green Apple has no cones. I don't know that it smells the same as th Professionals line with cones. I couldn't find an ingredeints list for that one. I love the smell and feel of the Naturals one and use it as a LI everyday.

    Oh okay! I didn't know there was one without cones in that scent. That's even better! :D

    I've never tried the regular line, but I have tried the Naturals line as leave-ins- and it works really well!
    Also, there is a "Sun-ripened strawberry" scent in the Naturals line :D

    Awesome! Sounds like both of my favorite scents are available in the Naturals line, which is fantastic! :D

    Called Suave yesterday and customer service said that Suave Naturals isn't cone free. Isn't methylchloroisothiazolinone a cone?

    That's right. Silicone products end in "cone" or "xane".
