Suave's New Year, New 'Do Party

Suave hired a hair stylist and sent me shampoo, conditioner and styling products so I could check them out. I had a few friends over for a "Ahhh, The Holidays Are Over And It's Time To Rest And Be Pampered" party. We had a ton of fun (as you can see from the pictures and videos). And I'm in love with Suave's new Almond and Shea Butter moisturizing shampoo and conditioner! It's smells good and I'm one of those weird people who buys shampoo, lotion, body wash, etc. based solely on smell. If I like the way it smells, I'll get it. If I don't, forget it. This shampoo not only smells good, but it leaves your hair totally soft and shiny.

Suave also has a new Aloe Vera & Ginseng volumizing shampoo and conditioner, and a Rosemary Mint invigorating clean shampoo and conditioner. I tried the Rosemary Mint ones and loved them too. They remind me of Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo. It's a really refreshing shampoo and helps wake me up when I use it in the morning.

And Brooklyn got her very first hair cut (not counting the one Clay gave her) Friday night at my Suave party! Check out the pictures!

And, for my readers, I have 2 bags full of Suave goodies to give away! Each bag contains the same products my guests received - a bottle of shampoo and conditioner in each of the 3 new fragrances/formulas! Plus Volumizing Spray Gel, Healthy Curls Mousse, my personal fave, Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream, and Weather Protection 365 Hairspray. Everyone at my party raved about the hairspray!
Leave me a comment here and I'll choose 2 random winners on Friday, January 15. Contest open to U.S. residents.



*Suave did provide me with a hairstylist, hair products, and refreshments. I was not paid to write about my experiences. I always give my honest opinion about products.

I love suave products and friday is my daughter's birthday, so maybe that combo will send some random good luck into the mix!

Valerie O from Ohio said...

Love Suave Sleek conditioner - use it everyday and Suave hairspray. Would love to try the new stuff, hate to buy new shampoo to find out it just doesn't work on my hair! Just for curiosity's sake, do you have to tranquilize Clay to get him to sit still to get his haircut?!

Sara said...

I would love this! I always have Suave stuff on hand.

Bonnie said...

I love Suave products. I'm a bit of a tightwad and can't see paying more for something than you have to. Suave products almost always work just as well as the pricier brands.

Always April said...

Oh my crap how can you not love free hair products?

lesan said...

Suave products rock! You are, by no means, weird for buying products for the smell. =)

Stef and Bry said...

Suave! Isn't that the stuff that we clean bathroom floor with? No, wait, that would be what my children consider a mopping agent. I personally prefer using it on hair...I just need to teach that to my 5 little rascals. Count me in on the drawing!!

Jen said...

Everyone's hair looked great! How great that you got Brooklyn's first haircut on tape! :) My daughter got her hair cut for the first time just after her 4th birthday. She got 8 inches cut off and we donated it.

I love Suave products!! I'd love to win these!!

I would love to win this. My girlfriend and her daughter ahve been having (14yr old daughter) issues and what a nice suggestion of mommy daughter pamper day!

Carol said...

Suave products are always a good value. However, I must be one of the few people who don't need the sleek and shine (naturally pin straight) but want VOLUME.

Sunshine said...

Ohhh....Suave - That sounds like fun. I may need to do a party like that. Thanks for the post and the honest opinion...And I know it won't help but the 15th is my birthday. Go me!

JoDee said...

Sauve products are really great that would be so awesome to win

mommyrox said...

This would be an awesome gift (birthday that is)
We use the suave bath gell all the time. Thanks!

Letty said...

You totally have me wanting to try the new almond and shea butter one- winter is hard on my hair! I hope I win (because that would be cheaper than actually going out and buying new shampoo of course!)

Jen said...

Suave rocks! They're the only product currently that doesn't make my hair oily and yet it makes it look really good. My body and hair is always changing and so I can't use all that fancy stuff usually, so Suave is totally my 1st and last choice! Not to mention that I also smell before buy. A lady has to know what she's going to smell like afterwards, right? :P LOL

Looks like everyone had fun. Would love to try the new volumizing shampoo!

She and her boss about feel over when I told her I went back to Suave.

I can't believe that was Brooklyn's first haircut! Her hair is so long and thick... and she's still only three (I keep trying to convince myself that Little Miss's will grow - someday). And wow - Savannah looks SO old!

Your hair though doesn't even look like you. It's such a diferent look, but you're right about how healthy your hair looks. Maybe I should reinvestigate what I'm doing. That or do more than wash, condition, comb and go. Can you tell today is a BAD hair day for me?
