Function of Beauty: Formulated for You

I’m going to let you guys on a little secret… I dye my hair. (Shocked, right?!)

To get this color, my strands are put under a ton of abuse. I try to treat my hair really well the rest of the time to counteract the damage. I avoid heat-styling, I do a heavy-duty hair mask every week, and I am always on the hunt to find hair products that will replenish moisture and strength.

When Function of Beauty reached out to me to try their shampoo and conditioner, I was intrigued. Rather than create formulas that they think people want, they let YOU create your own custom formula. There are often individual shampoos that fit a portion of my hair-care goals but nothing that tackles everything I’m looking for. Not until I created it with Function of Beauty, that is.

Their site is simple, chic, and super easy to use. First, you build your hair profile (hair texture and scalp moisture level) and then move on to select your hair goals. This is my favorite part. No longer do I have to select between color-protection and shine. I can have both! You select up to five goals, which allows you to achieve everything you’re looking for. Another favorite feature of mine is that the active ingredients and a description for the goal pops up as you click on each one. The formulas are also free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and triclosan.

After you choose the formula specifications, you choose customization options like color and scent. There are some chic scent options, like white tea jasmine and grapefruit hibiscus.

The custom formulation arrived quickly. My hair profile is for fine, wavy, normal moisture hair. The hair goals I selected are: deep condition; fix split ends; hydrate; strengthen; color protection.

I was a little afraid that I wouldn’t notice a difference in my hair after switching to my custom formulation, but I definitely did. After using the products for a week, I noticed that I had more body and that I could stretch the length of time between shampoos a little bit longer. Nothing can fix split ends like a haircut, but the ends of my tresses are noticeably smoother.

This is a really unique way to shop for hair care products. Head over to Function of Beauty to create your very own custom formulation!
