This is one of the only shampoos I can use! I have an oily scalp that dries out easily and smelt bad with most shampoos. I use to use baby shampoo but it made my scalp very oily and smelly. I switched to Finesse and my scalp smelled better and didn't dry out!

I am a shampoo freak...I think I've tried every brand on the market. My hair is thick, wavy, frizzy, and breaks easily. I always spent about $40.00 on brands such as Biolage...
One day, I came across an online article reviewing Finesse. I thought "hmmm ...It's that cheap shampoo I saw at Dollar General for about $3.00." I bought it and I was AMAZED!! It smells great, left my hair shiny, soft, and feeling clean. My hair was not frizzy when dry. Now this is the only shampoo I use, along with Neutrogena's clarifying shampoo once a week to help my hair recoup. I love it. I am now saving about $34.00 since it's so cheap. I also recommend using moroccan argab oil on your strands while hair is damp after being washed, you will see great improvement in ur hair!

I wanted to try a new shampoo and conditioner so I saw this at target. My hair is normal and fine/thin. I never have any problems with herbal essence or garnier or even aveeno but this I did. I've only used it 3 times and so far I'm not loving it. It made my scalp dry and flakey. I wash my hair every other day since my hair does not get oily. This shampoo and conditioner is not moisturizing at all. It did not help my hair at all as it claims to be on the package. The smell is alright but other than that, there's nothing special about it. I had to use my boyfriend's shampoo (garnier anti flake or something) because the finesse one was making my scalp flake and my hair dry (plus it was hard to comb through my hair). After using my bfs shampoo my scalp was ok (still a little flakey). I don't know what ingredients is inside finesse that's causing my scalp and hair to dry. I will give it another try since I know I haven't used that long but for now, this is a big no for me. It may work for other people but definitely not for me.

I really did want to love this Shampoo. I was wanting to wait a while before reviewing it so that I could give an accurate review based on my experience. I have been using this shampoo for a month now and I had loved it all up until these past 2 weeks. I usually don't have a sensitive scalp to any products but this product started to make my scalp and neck itch super bad in the shower and would continue throughout the day. I guess I have to start my hunt for a different shampoo.

First of all I have long fine hair, but lots and lots of it that tends to be in loose curls. It's complicated because I have baby hair around my hairline that gets extra frizzy and even curlier than the rest of my hair- especially in harsher weather. It is quite a challenge to find something that makes my hair soft and healthy but also controls the frizz and doesn't make my roots greasy or gives them a yucky film. Well I found it. (finally!) This stuff is great. No yucky film, no extra greasiness, no unmanageable frizz- just soft shiny healthy looking hair. It's awesome. Usually opaque shampoos are too moisturizing but when I used it it lathered very nicely and felt super creamy. It rinsed out clean with no film or yuckiness left behind. (when paired with the conditioner- pure heaven).The ooooonly thing that doesnt make this the most perfect product on the planet is the fact that I'm not 100% fond of the smell. After reading other reviews I've found people particularly like the smell of it but not the case for me. It's like this really intensely fresh clean smell. I usually tend to go for the sweet flowery or fruity smells. My hair tends to hold scent very easily so when it dried the smell was a tad overpowering but after time kind of toned down a bit. Smell is an easily fix though so I will continue to use this in the future.
UPDATE: :( started making my hair fall out. the hunt continues

I really like this shampoo it smells awesome and it works well on oily hair!

I think they adjusted the smell. I recall it smelling slightly different. There is this scent that I just can't place. It almost smells like I recall but it makes the shampoo smell a bit off at times.
I air dry my hair and the smell really stays.
Now I don't have dry hair. I have healthy hair with an oily scalp. My hair is fine in texture with a medium thickness.
I use moisture shampoos because I live in CA and my ends can get dry if I don't watch it. As long as I use things with moisture they are fine.
This does slightly weigh down my hair but just enough to not make it poofy which my hair can do as I have a slight wave.
My hair feels soft and silky.

PROS: Slightly moisturizing shampoo (not quite enough for my very dry hair.). Smells clean and somewhat feminine (hard to describe.)
CONS: The scent is just a bit too strong for me, but if you like the scent to begin with, you probably won't mind that. Not quite moisturizing enough, but my hair is VERY dry.
ALTERNATES FOR VERY DRY HAIR: Weightless Conditioner Detangler by Motions (found in the African American hair section in my Walmart). Organic Root Stimulator's Olive Oil Shampoo (found in the African-American section at my Walmart) is gentler for sure.

I have been using this on and off for years and I love it. My super long hair is never tangled and always smells great. I think that the shampoo is priced great, and there is a lot in the bottle. My scalp gets irritated easily but I don't have that problem with Finesse.

I'd buy again just for the smell of this stuff! I have this along with the moisturizing conditioner, and although it really isn't that great at moisturizing, it is a great basic shampoo and conditioner because it hasn't left my straight and fine hair oily at all! Usually that happens with most shampoos and conditioners, but I feel this stuff is a bit thin and light, not heavy at all. I even leave it in as a leave in conditioner and LOVE smelling it! After using it, my hair feels super clean, but also a bit dry. NOT a bad thing for me though! I'd rather be a bit dry than to have super oily hair and scalp! Update:Okay, this stuff is TOO drying for me. I'm gonna have to pass on it, even though it does smell nice! And since it is drying, my hair is back to falling out in chunks. CHUNKS(I have quite a bit of it in the trash, and I can make Barbie a new wig or two)! This is the most I've lost, ever! Also, after using it, my hair is tangled easily with knots. So, it's now been bumped down from its 3 to a 2. So sad! It smelled so nice! Oh, well, I guess I can finish it off as a body wash! I have also learned my lesson:DON'T switch shampoos and conditioners!If one's working out for you, stay with it!

I used to use Finesse all the time when I was in elementary school! I have two much older sisters and whenever they'd visit for holidays they'd ask me what kind of shampoo I used. It was fun as an eight year old to give hair-care advice to women in their twenties!
Anyway I bought this on a whim, as I hadn't used it in years. Ah I have missed you, Finesse! It still works really well; my hair always feels silky after I use it, I enjoy the lather and the smell, and it's super cheap (< $3.00.)

Basic shampoo. no complaints or praises one way or another, except for the smell. Love the smell.....the smell makes me nostalgic for middle school or something :) I will probably buy on occasion just to get my occasional fill of the smell!

Oh I so wanted to love this product! Lately I've been wanting to go back to the old school days and use the shampoos I once loved..more so for the smell! Shampoos nowadays just are too fruity or something. After reading everybody's reviews, I went out and bought Finesse yesterday. I tried it this morning and it caused my scalp to itch / burn. Four hours, I am still feeling it slightly. I guess I am too sensitive for it:( What I wish I could see again is Clairol Herbal Essence (the original with the girl on the front!) and Agree shampoo.

I love this shampoo paired with the Finesse Moisturizing Conditioner. They leave a pleasant, clean fragance on my hair that lasts the whole day. The shampoo does a good job of cleaning my curly hair without overdrying. I'm so glad Finesse has become easier to find lately!

Let me start by saying I only review 5-star products. I love this shampoo. Even tho Finesse re-formulated their already great product, they are the *only* drugstore shampoo that contains absolutely NO sodium! Sodium is drying to the hair, FInesse usues aluminium instead, which tends to produce the itchy sensation on the scalp. It's a trade off really, but I much prefer Finesse to all other shampoos and I've tried them all, drugstore and high-end. I just love the colour of the bottle, it is so easy to squeeze. This shampoo has an interesting, clean and soft fragrance that stays in the hair all day. If you do the french custom of kissing both cheeks when greeting friends, use Finesse! I consistently get compliments on my hair when I'm using this shampoo. I never need to use conditioner with Finesse Moisturizing shampoo. This is my go-to hair product when I don't have a lot of time in the morning, when I'll be in close contact with people, or when I just need to look my best. Will definitely repurchase (these go on 3/5$ often, stock up!).

I love how soft and shiny this shampoo makes my hair, but it always makes my scalp itch. However, I'm still going to give it four stars simply because other than that setback, it works so well for so cheap! And just like everyone else, I love the smell...I can't even describe it....maybe like a good smelling hair dye?

I started using this shampoo back when I was about 15 for one simple reason..the smell is heavenly!! And ever sinse using it that first time, it has been one of my favs. I will say, I do try out a number of shampoos and I am forever switching which one I use, but when I feel my hair isnt in good shape..this is the one I always go too. It leaves your hair so soft, and leaves it smelling great. I always get compliments on how great my hair smells when I use it which I love haha! It lathers up nicley and rinses away clean and doesnt leave any buildup or soap-y residue on your hair.

I am so pleasently surprised to see Finesse here. This shampoo is a classic I have used for years. No matter how much Aveda, Fekkai, or other high end shampoos I use this one always stays in my shower.
I love the clean this shampoo gives. It is unlike typical shampoos that are mass cosmetic because it does not feel overly detergenty. It is scented so if you are sensitive to fragrances please smell first because the scent will remain in your hair. Which is actually why I love this shampoo so much - everytime I use this and my hair dries I love the way it smells!
What is not to love about Finesse - this is a product that has long outlived others without all the marketing hype of some of its competitors.

I love this shampoo. I used it all the time a few years ago, but then I kind of forgot about it. I just got some recently and it's still as awesome as it was back then. It makes my hair really silky and gets all the tangles out, so much so that I don't even need conditioner afterwards. And the smell is amazing.

I got this for BOGO1/2 at Rite Aid with a rebate so I think i ended paying ike $1.50 for a 20 oz of shampoo (it had some extra 25% addtl volume in the btl i think) and a similar price for the conditioner. I wanted to give it a try since I'm a sucker for sales and I have fairly easy to manage non-processed regular straight asian hair. I tend to wear my hair up most days so I frankly don't even notice if it's shiny or straight or whatever. But I do sleep with my hair wet and I like how the scent ( a soft fresh scent) lingers in my hair in the morning. And I do find that when I do let it air dry it is very soft which I like, I don't get the static-cling that some shampoo/conditioners tend to cause. I use this with the matching conditioner. Will repurchase if on sale.
