Custom shampoo by Function of Beauty—a review

Beauty review today! I was recently asked to try out customized shampoo and conditioner by Function of Beauty. Here’s what I thought.

In case you’ve never heard of this new brand, basically, Function of Beauty is a service that gives customers fully customized shampoo and conditioner sets based on their exact hair needs. You can pick almost everything about your particular formula based on your hair’s texture, and even pick what color and scent you want it to be! If you’re interested, read more here. 

The function of Function of Beauty (tee hee) is to change the way people buy products; instead of a one-size-fits-all kinda thing, or even products tailored to treat one specific function (i.e. curly hair, color-treated hair, etc.), Function of Beauty’s mission is to “create a world where brands don’t exist.” Interesting, indeed.function of beauty

Here’s the process of filling out your unique “hair profile:”

The people behind this brand created over 450 million formulations to address literally everyone’s hair needs. So how did it stack up?

I personally was pretty impressed with the formula. The one characteristic I noticed the most was oil control; I could go three days without washing my hair and not notice oiliness! A huge plus. It’s also a boon to know that this shampoo is taking care of everything I need in a wash. Time will tell if it keeps working well or if I’ll need a reformulation soon (my hair tends to be temperamental). Will update this post if necessary!function-of-beauty-review-1

Some things about Function of Beauty: they are made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan. They’re not tested on animals. And if you’re not satisfied with your formula, you can have it reformulated for free. So yay!signoff

      Yeah, prices aren’t crazy! For custom shampoo, and you can always reformulate, which I love.
