Suave Rosemary Mint Conditioner: good but Aveda it is not

Pros:Nice scent; good basic conditioner that improves manageability

Cons:not as minty as Aveda

The Bottom Line: Good conditioner at a good price. You're not getting Aveda quality but it's still nice.


I recently discovered that Suave had introduced a Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner. Although Suave is usually a brand I only buy for my kids, I succumbed to my curiosity and bought the matching pair. I've used pricier salon brands with this scent and absolutely loved them, so now I wanted to find out if Suave would prove to be a worthy competitor to them.

Product Details


The conditioner is available in 14.5 and 32 ounce bottles. I paid about $1.49 for the smaller bottle at Walmart. Currently the larger bottle sells for around $3.

Suave says that this shampoo and conditioner system is proven to invigorate hair as well as Aveda Rosemary Mint. Both Suave products are infused with 100% natural rosemary and mint, known for their invigorating properties.  In addition to these two ingredients, the conditioner, like the shampoo, also has a a number of other natural extracts, including Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Matricaria Flower Extract, and Lavender Extract. But 100% natural it is not, as there are a number of chemical ingredients as well, although I was pleased to see that most of them come after the natural ingredients on the ingredients list, which means their concentration is less.

The conditioner comes in the same type of bottle as the shampoo, a streamlined oval shape that fits easily into my narrow shower caddy. It is designed and packaged to stand on its flip-top lid. However, the nice thing about about this Suave bottle is that it can be stored either way.

My experiences

The conditioner is white and creamy, with a fairly thick consistency. For normal everyday use I apply it primarily on the ends of my hair, but for purposes of this review, I used it from the roots to the tips. It is easy to apply and coats my hair nicely. For being so thick and creamy it doesn't feel greasy or too heavy, and also rinses quite easily. While the scent is very nice, I don't find it quite as minty as Aveda. Nor does it make my scalp feel tingly. Since normally I don't use it on my scalp, it's not a big concern.

My hair does feel nice and conditioned and easy to comb through after I am done showering. I prefer conditioners that add a bit of volume to my hair, which this one does not, but at least this Suave conditioner doesn't make my hair weighted down. My dry ends do look better, as well.

Overall rating


Suave Rosemary Mint is a good basic conditioner that makes my hair more manageable and does provide some decent conditioning for dry ends. The scent is nice, although not quite up to par with the salon brands. I was happy to see that my hair didn't feel greasy and heavy on the second day after using it (I try to shampoo only every other day). Overall, I'd recommend it for those with normal hair who don't need a lot of conditioning and repair, or aren't looking for a volumnizing conditioner. 3 stars.
