WARNING: Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo + Conditioner

suave almond shea butter shampoo conditioner walmart value size review BAD!suave almond shea butter shampoo review bad hair breaking ingredientsdangerous suave almond shea butter conditioner formaldehyde ingredients hair break off bad
I had a BAD experience with Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo + Conditioner a few years ago- after a month of use my hair started falling out BADLY! And so when I see this "moisturizing hair product" raved about online it drives me crazy, those reviewers obviously haven't used it more than a few times or they'd know my horror. THERE ARE BAD, TOXIC INGREDIENTS IN THESE HAIR PRODUCTS! FORMALDEHYDE SHOULD NEVER BE USED ON YOUR HAIR OR BODY!

HERE'S WHY SUAVE ALMOND & SHEA BUTTER IS "SO GREAT"-- dry hairshafts are not smooth, the cuticles are rough (I drew a picture to try and help explain) so the bad ingredients SLOWLY break down your hair, smoothing down the cuticles- just imagine this like shaving your legs. So in the beginning of using Suave Almond & Shea Butter your hair appears softer and less tangled, easier to comb because physically the hair is smoother. But over time the bad ingredients never stop shaving away the hair cuticle, they keep cutting deeper and deeper into your hair every time you use it! This damage is irreversible and eventually so severe the hair breaks off!
Yeah..... "SO GREAT"!!

Conditioner Ingredients
Water (Aqua) , Cetearyl Alcohol , Dimethicone , Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine , Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond) , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice , Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil (Lemongrass) , Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil , Chamomilla Recutita Flower , Leaf Extract , Lavandula Angustifolia Flower Extract (Lavender) , Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba) , Behentrimonium Chloride , Fragrance , Dipropylene Glycol , Lactic Acid , Potassium Chloride , Amodimethicone , Disodium EDTA , DMDM Hydantoin , PEG-150 Distearate , PEG-7 Propylheptyl Ether , Cetrimonium Chloride , Methylchloroisothiazolinone , Methylisothiazolinone

Sodium Laureth Sulfate: harsh and drying on your hair, studies have shown irritation, eye damage, and link to hair loss; once absorbed in your skin it can be retaned in your body for a lifetime!! Almost every shampoo and toothpaste on the market have SLS so just imagine the damage already done to your body :-(

Tetrasodium EDTA: a preservative made from formaldehyde and sodium cyanide, linked to cancer.  Also used for dissolving limescale!
DMDM hydantoin: an antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative, linked to cancer. This ingredient will intensify your allergic reaction to the Tetrasodium EDTA yay!!

Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone: allergens so bad/unsafe that they're only used in wash-off products- so you'd better make sure to wash off this crap completely!

Behentrimonium Chloride is a toxic compound, and concentrations of .1% and higher have been shown to damage the eyes by causing tissue death of the mucous membranes. It's also highly flammable, and irritating to the skin.

PEG-150 Distearate: linked to cancer, can cause allergic reactions

^^I looked up each of these ingredients myself and cross-checked with different sources to make sure what I type here is accurate. I actually called Suave with my concerns and their response was "interesting... but that's not what our safety testing showed. So what's your address? We'd love to send you a coupon to purchase more Suave products! We love our customers!" -oh yeah? SPAGHETTI!! they didn't listen to me at all or answer my questions honestly. They don't care.

  1. I've been scratching at my scalp for weeks!!...I've had dandruff in the past but it's always been extremely mild. My head has itched so bad that it burns....then it hit me that I had switched to suave almond and Shae butter shampoo and I stopped using it and my scalp is completely healed. Could be an allergy to the walnut or Shae butter ingredients but after reading this it could very well be more than that.
