Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Haircare Review

The latest high end ingredient, Argan Oil, hits drugstore shelves

Oil, long the bane of hair for modern women, is having a come back. Moroccan Argan Oil is probably the most popular and is popping up in new products every day. Now you can find this affordable luxury in your major retailer with the new Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusionicon line.

Featuring shampoo, conditioner, a styling oil, and a deep conditioning mask, the Moroccan Infusion line has a little bit for everyone. I started my test in the most logical of ways – the Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampooicon ($3.69) and Shine Conditionericon ($3.69).

Straight out of the bottle, the first thing to hit me was the smell. If the feeling of cashmere had a smell, this would be it – down right luxurious. The product itself has a smoother, weightier feel to it than the average shampoo or conditioner and leaves hair with the perfect amount of slip without leaving a heavy residue.

After towelling my hair I immediately recognized a difference in the way my curls fell. Rather than bunching up they fell in a smooth, relaxed pattern. Who can argue with that? My husband (who wears his hair long) was even complimented by another man after using both the Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. And for those who color their hair (don’t worry, I’ll never tell) there is a Color Careicon version.

The Moroccan Infusion Deep Conditioning Shine Maskicon ($3.49) is for when you need to take conditioning to the next level. My hair is feeling crispy from running in and out of heated buildings to the cold, but after just one treatment with the Shine Mask it was like I had a whole new head of hair! I did notice that using it more than twice a week weighed down my hair, so I recommend limiting use.

Finally there is the Moroccan Infusion Argan Styling Oil icon ($7.09). A light oil meant to impart shine and conditioned softness, it just wasn’t cut out for my curls. Without the use of some form of gel or mousse there was just too much frizz. But for those with straight or fine hair, this oil should produce much better results. Happily, on days I wear my hair in a bun it’s the perfect finishing touch for healthy, shiny hair.

Pros:
The price can’t be beat
Fantastic scent
Easy to find in stores

Cons:
Styling oil not enough for coarse or curly hair

    This morning my husband said to me, “This stuff is cheap*, right? It works just as well as the expensive stuff, can we buy this from now on?”
    From the horse’s mouth folks! You can’t get a more rock solid review than that. 5 stars!

    *Inexpensive is a better adjective, there is nothing “cheap” about any of these products!

    If your husband thinks these products are that good, that’s saying something! While I’m not surprised that moroccan oil has trickled down to the drugstore level, I am surprised to see it from Suave, a particularly budget-friendly brand. I totally know what you mean about hair bunching up after you towel dry it. Really helpful review.

    **Side note: I took a look at the ingredients in the Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care line… the second ingredient is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. I’d probably skip it if I had color-treated hair.

      Oh, I just read your side-note after posting my comment…thanks for doing that extra research for us! I was confused on the names because when they make minor changes to the name of chemicals, they mean vastly different things! I THINK sodium laureth sulfate is what you do want in a shampoo for color. What you don’t want is sodium lauryl sulfate. Ridiculous that one little letter makes that kind of difference! So in looking for my shampoos I’m going to try to remember “e” good “y” bad! (laureth vs. lauryl)

      SLS and SLES are pretty closely related, and a lot of folks try to avoid the both in hair products. If you’re looking to avoid sulfates in general you’d want to avoid these products, but if you’re looking for the lesser of two sulfates it’s my understanding that SLES is gentler. YMMV!

    I’m really impressed that Suave has added a Moroccan oil line, and the price is still incredibly cheap! I’m glad you added that there is a color care line though too. I was reading this thinking “Oh, it sounds so great, but I could never try it since last time I used Suave I stripped my hundred dollar color out the week after it was applied!” Now, maybe I can give it a go again – thanks for the great review!

  4. Oh, thanks for trying this for me. I’m all about renewing and reviving my hair and bringing back the shine. At that price, I can’t afford NOT to try it. Great information, Amanda!
