Product Review: David Babaii Supreme Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner

I have long hair which is thick, and due to its length it is a little heavy and although it is straight, it does have a bit wave, so I am always looking for new products to not only help maintain my hair, but also help make it smoother and straighter, so I can avoid using my hair straightener. Here are my thoughts of the *David Babaii Supreme Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner;

What They Say:
This smoothing duo will gently cleanse the hair, while weightlessly smoothing frizzy, unruly hair. Soothing camomile extract protects the scalp and smoothes the cuticles, while sunflower seed oil adds vibrancy to dull hair colour and seals ends. A phytenso soy complex is a natural hair relaxant that will leave the hair glossy and smooth.

RRP: $19.95 each (300ml) – available from Priceline, Select Pharmacies and David Babaii Online

What I Say:
I really like the David Babaii Miracle Oil, and in spite of having tried quite a few hair oils, it remains one of my favourites. But that also meant that I had very high hopes and expectations for the David Babaii Supreme Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner.

The Supreme Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner contain soothing camomile extract to protect the scalp and smoothe the cuticles, sunflower seed oil adds vibrancy and shine to dull hair colour and seals ends, and phytenso soy complex for glossy and smooth hair. Both the shampoo and conditioner have also been formulated without any of the chemical nasties, and hence does not contain sulphates, parabens or petrochemicals.

My long hair is generally it is quite healthy, but due to its length, needless to say that it has been through countless summers, hair colourings and heat sessions, so it is a little dry at the ends with some split ends.

I usually wash my hair every second day, and rarely do I feel that I need to wash it more than once. When shampoos do not contain sulphates I often find that it can often be difficult to get the shampoo to lather properly, but that was not the case with the Supreme Smooth Shampoo. It easily lathered up into soft foam, and just one shampooing was needed to make my hair feel clean, but without my hair feeling squeaky or stripped for moisture.

Afterwards I used the Supreme Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner, which my hair absorbs instantly. After a few minutes I rinsed out the conditioner, which was very easy and quick to do, unlike other conditioners where you keep rinsing and rinsing and keep feeling there is residue left in your hair.

Combing my hair afterwards is so easy as it is free from knots and tangles, and once dry, my hair is left soft, and is so easy to manage. My hair looks so shiny and healthy, and feels deeply nourished from roots to end yet without being weighed down. Both the shampoo and conditioner come in half-moon shaped bottles bottles with a flip lid at the top. The bottles are brown in a soft suede’ish soft touch feel, which I really like. The look simple and stylish, and actually match the décor of my bathroom.

The bottles have a small pale blue bar on the middle of the bottle with the name Supreme Smooth, and then either Shampoo or Conditioner in quite small writing – and wearing glasses, it is actually rather difficult for me to distinguish between the two in the shower when I am not wearing my glasses!

Another thing that I have found a little annoying is the fact that the shampoo bottle seems to be leaking at the top, so that after you have used it, shampoo runs down the front of the bottle, not only making the bottle quite greasy, but also making a mess of my shower!

Both the shampoo and the conditioner have a nice floral scent, which is very pleasant and far from overpowering. And once my hair is washed and dry, it smells absolutely gorgeous, yet again without being too intense or overpowering. 

All in all I have enjoyed using the David Babaii Supreme Shampoo and Conditioner, and how the products make my hair feel and look so healthy and shiny, so at just $19.95 each they are a great buy!

Babaii? What’s your favourite shampoo and conditioner?



  1. What a shame about the bottles leaking. I have used a David Babaii product in the past but I was not all that wrapped in it. I wonder if the products have been reformulated since then? Tammerly @ Spoiltblog.com

    1. Yes, I do believe that the products have recently been reformulated and relaunched.

  2. I've not yet tried this brand but am very keen, however the leaking bottles are a bit of a concern......

  3. Yes, it really is a little annoying that the bottles are leaking like that, but otherwise the packaging looks great.
