Hello IMBB Ladies!
Wishing everyone a lovely day and NO more bad hair days! Yup, I wish for less to no more bad hair days that is why I am on a constant search for the best hair care products for my wavy, dry and color treated hair. As I tried one shampoo after another, read one review after another, I became more aware of ingredients to avoid in a hair care product. One of the simplest shampoo I tried in terms of the number of ingredients in it is the Finesse Clean + Simple Hypoallergenic Shampoo for Dry/ Color Treated Hair. 🙂

My Take on Finesse Clean + Simple Hypoallergenic Shampoo For Dry/ Color Treated Hair:
I cannot remember the last time I used a hypoallergenic shampoo; perhaps it was before I entered my teen years. I shared baby shampoos with my siblings until I am ten or eleven! So when I saw bottles of Finesse saying it is clean and simple plus it is hypoallergenic, I immediately wanted to try it. What made me more interested were its claims written on the bottle that it is non irritating which I like since I sometimes develop acne on my scalp, along my hair line and on my back on some shampoos and hair care products. And that it is free of allergens, dyes, sulfates and is dermatologist tested. Sounds really, really good right?
Finesse Clean +Simple Hypoallergenic Shampoo comes in 2 variants. One for normal hair and the one I got is for dry, color treated hair. It comes in one size here in our place, in a 295ml bottle. I like how it is simply packaged in a white bottle with aqua cap. It truly exudes simplicity. The shampoo itself is clear or transparent. It does have a mild fresh scent which last the whole day on my hair and even until next wash.
I tried this shampoo alone, no follow up with conditioner to know what it can do to my hair. I am quite happy with it as it can make my hair soft, smooth and still manageable. But of course, using conditioner after shampooing creates best results. With the combo, hair is noticeably softer, smoother and more manageable. 🙂
I love how mild this shampoo is as it did not cause acne breakouts on my hairline and back. No irritations as well. Though this shampoo is mild, it cleans superbly. I used this shampoo everyday for a month during this hot season and I am so glad that it did not dry my hair out. Love it. It even made my hair looking healthier than it’s state before switch to this brand. My hair dried out a month ago due to hair coloring and this shampoo cared really well for my damaged tresses. 🙂
I am loving how simple this shampoo is. It only has 13 ingredients in it which I find significantly fewer than those in most shampoo brands in the mainstream. It does not have dyes and sulfates. Sulfates are present in most household cleaning solutions and detergents. This allows water and oil to mix together which we cannot do no matter how we shake and stir the two. Most avoid sulfates in their shampoos because it is known to be a grease cutter. It can remove grease, then it can strip hair’s natural oil and devoid scalp of moisture. This in turns triggers oil production in our scalp making it oilier. Though this Sulfate-Free shampoo from Finesse lathers just fine, I find other commercial shampoos to lather better. Not a problem for me as it still cleans well.

Cons of on Finesse Clean + Simple Hypoallergenic Shampoo For Dry/ Color Treated Hair:
IMBB Rating: 5/5
Final thoughts: This is one of my favorite shampoos now and I will keep on repurchasing. I have better hair now so I think I will try the variant for normal hair in the future to see how it differs. I am quite satisfied with Finesse Clean +Simple Hypoallergenic Shampoo which proves that less is more. 🙂
