Today I am going to be reviewing my NEW FAVORITE hair care product. It's called Function of Beauty, and it's personalized shampoo and conditioner!!!! You heard me!!! And yes, it's amazing.
My Hair Journey
So I've had a little bit of a hair journey, and I've really been trying to get the healthiest and most natural version of my hair for the past few years. I have very thin and fine hair, and several years ago I started wearing clip in extensions to make my hair appear thicker and longer. I was also a blonde at the time, so you can image the damage, lol. When I first started wearing the extensions, I would literally get stopped by random people, and they would tell me how beautiful my locks were (little did they know it was a weave, haha). Soooo, obviously I kept wearing them. I got so addicted to the bleach and extensions that my hair literally fried off! It was unbelievably thin, and broken. Of course, I saw my hair in its natural state everyday, so I really didn't realize HOW bad it was, until I revealed it to my college roommates. I realized it was TRULY a problem when I saw their initial reaction.
I got to the point where I couldn't go without the extensions because my hair was THAT bad, and of course I was self-conscious. My sweet husband (boyfriend at the time) finally talked me into throwing the extensions away for good, getting my hair cut short, and dying it back to my natural hair color.
It was the hardest thing ever because I was so self conscious, but I am so thankful I did it. Needless to say, I have really been babying my locks to get it back to its natural state, and this Function of Beauty shampoo and conditioner is truly giving it life!
What is Function of Beauty?
I recently discovered this brand, and I am a little obsessed with it, lol. I have told all of my friends about it because I think everyone needs it, haha! Function of Beauty is a line of personalized shampoo and conditioner.
Once on their website, you take a quick hair quiz. They ask you about your hair type (ex: frizzy, curly, straight, fine, etc.), your hair goals (ex: anti frizz, damage repair, etc.), and then you pick a color, and a scent for your shampoo and conditioner! Of course I picked the color pink ;) and then I picked Sandalwood Lavender for my scent. But I am ALL about personalization, so this seriously excites me!
It took about two weeks to get my shampoo after ordering it online. This felt like forever, but I know they are special making my product, so I decided to cut them some slack ;)
When you get it, it comes in a pretty mint colored box (great packaging), and it's simply glorious when you open the box! You products are laid out, and there is a print-out of your hair quiz, and directions on how to use the products.
My first time using it I was a little skeptical. The scent smells good, but a little more earthy (for lack of better words) than the scents I am usually drawn to. The shampoo smells a little more like Sandalwood, and the conditioner more like Lavender. The BUT when I finished washing and conditioning, my hair smelt amazing! I knew this stuff was great when I got out of the shower and began to let my hair air dry.... NO FRIZZ! Seriously y'all, I have SUCH frizzy hair, and lots of curl. Usually when I let my hair air dry, it becomes a puff ball in 2.5 seconds. Not this time thoughhhhhh ;)
I decided to blow dry it a little to see what it did, and it looked so silky and soft, for once in my life, lol. THEN, the topper to the whole story was that my husband immediately noticed, and told me how long and silky my hair looked. UMMM OKKEYYYY! I'm just gonna whip my hair back and forth real quick! Haha! Anyways, I seriously love this stuff, and I'm such a fan! I totally recommend it for you girls that struggle with frizz, or just need a little hair help.
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! Now go get yourself some new shampoo! ;)
