Hear ye! Hear ye! The future of hair care is upon us!!!
Happy Hump Day peeps! I hope you’ve had a fantastic week so far! I am so so so excited to introduce you to Function of Beauty. They contacted me a few weeks ago and I was super excited to have the opportunity to try and review their products! First of all, let me give you a little bit of information about the company. Function of Beauty is a fairly new company that is revolutionizing the beauty space by creating truly customized hair care products. Each shampoo and conditioner is uniquely formulated (by robots…what!) according to your hair profile and needs. They have been featured in Vogue, CNBC, the Today Show, and more! They are taking the beauty market by storm and I totally understand why after using it for two weeks. The company was founded by a MIT computer scientist, a MIT engineer, and a cosmetic chemist who developed proprietary (magic) algorithms and robotic machines to create millions of formulations to address all hair types and concerns. Function of Beauty’s goal is to celebrate your individuality through the creation of products made uniquely for you. Their products are formulated with natural ingredients, NEVER tested on animals, and are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, and triclosan. ( To be honest, I don’t even know what some of that means BUT it sounds scary and I’m glad it’s not in my hair products! Ha!)
Here’s how it works:
First, you’ll complete your hair profile. You’ll take a little quiz and give info about your hair, goals, and preferences. The *magical* algorithms (with 450 million different formulations) will determine an exact formula for your personalized shampoo and conditioner. For my hair, I specified that it was a curly type, with medium hair structure, and normal scalp moisture. Next, you’ll select 5 hair goals from a list of 17… choices such as: thermal protection, volumize, oil control, curl definition, anti-frizz, deep condition and strengthen, just to name a few. I chose to lengthen, volumize, and anti-frizz (I need all the help I can get with that one! EESH!) Next, you’ll customize your formulas with your name (which will be on the bottle…I find to be very cool and a great detail), the color you’d like your shampoo and conditioner, and fragrance. They have 6 different fragrances to choose from and ALL of them sound amazing. A few of the options are: Cucumber Mint, White Tea Jasmine, and Sandalwood Violet…I chose the Passion Fruit Papaya (which smells like tropical heaven in a bottle.) Lastly, you choose your size (8oz or 16oz) and then go to checkout! BOOM! You can also chat with a chemist at any point during that process if you have any questions about the ingredients or products in general.
A few days later, I received my shipment…
Inside was also an info card with deets all about my shampoo and conditioner!
It reviews my hair profile, gives a detailed ingredient list, and then also provides a personalized regimen for maximum results based on my hair profile and the goals I specified.
I have to say, after 2 weeks of use, I’m impressed. The overall feel of my hair is much smoother even when I let it dry curly. I can definitely tell a difference in the texture. I haven’t been using my normal frizz serum because I wanted to test to see if it was actually working. Good news: it’s passing my test! I have less fly-aways with more balance in my overall texture. As far as lengthening goes, I know that will take time. My hair grows slower than a snail’s pace, BUT I have faith that this personalized formula will help with that, seeing how it managed to tame my normally frizzy mane. I’ve noticed more volume too, especially when I let it dry curly. I’ve only worn it straight once and although it had more volume than normal, humidity did take its toll and it began to curl up. Maybe after the summer humidity calms down, I’ll switch one of my hair goals to the straighten option. That’s another perk of this entire process… if you find that your shampoo and conditioner isn’t working for you or you want to focus on something different, you can reformulate at any time. It’s also very reasonably priced…8 oz is $13 per bottle and 16oz is $19 per bottle. You cannot… I repeat, cannot find premium hair products for that price. And certainly not hair care that’s formulated from top to bottom for your exact needs! I urge you to try it beacause you may just find your new favorite hair product! It’s also a really nifty gift idea! Definitely check out their website: Function of Beauty
Until next time✌️|Stay styled, sugarplum!💋
