As a former beauty school student and upscale day spa manager, I know a little about hair care products. I am also a consumer who wants to buy the best products for a good price.
Having been exposed to finer, more expensive hair care products from working in an upscale day spa, I can tell you all that spending more doesn’t always mean you are getting a better product. Although I love the rich scents of Redkin products, justifying paying $10 for a bottle of shampoo is hard for me to do.
When I was attending beauty school back in the eighties, my cosmetology teacher recommended that we purchase Finesse conditioner to use on our dummy heads. He felt that it was the best conditioner out there for keeping the hair silky and easier to work with.
Several decades later, I still find myself using Finesse. These days, Finesse makes several variations of their shampoo and conditioner. Having more mature hair that tends to be drier and coloring often, I purchase the moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
At my local chain drugstore, the 13 ounce bottles of shampoo and conditioner were on sale 2 for $5. That is quite a bargain!
Finesse has a pleasing scent that isn’t overpowering but leaves your hair smelling fresh. As someone with thick, long hair, I need all the moisture that I can get from a product. Many products promise to reduce frizz, add moisture and reduce dryness; does Finesse cut it?
I am thrilled to say that it does. I am not a frequent shampooer; I can skip a day and still have my hair look great. The shampoo gets good lather and rinses well. The conditioner is thick enough that you can feel it absorb into your hair and scalp. It also rinses well and doesn’t leave your hair feeling gummy. After towel drying, I can easily put a comb through my hair without any pulling.
There are pricier shampoos and conditioners that you can buy and I do admit to splurging every now and again just for the richer scents of these high-end products. When I want a good shampoo and conditioner for a good price, I choose Finesse.
Finesse also makes other hair care products like styling aids. These are also a very good value and I definitely recommend that you give them a try. If you are afraid of buying a full-sized product, look for travel size products. For $1 or slightly more, this is a great way to try out a product and see if it is for you.
Finesse shampoo and conditioners come in special formulas for thin hair, color-treated and regular.
