We do a bunch of helper hair talk here on CH&M.
But, I don’t want to ignore our bio hair.
That bio hair is what brought you here in the first place, right?
Even though I only have about four strands left, I still like to find fun products to use on my natural hair.
My hair-BFF, Kellie, who used to blog about hair loss at Out of Thin Hair (Kellie, when are you starting it back up??), told me about Function of Beauty. Plus, she gave me $5 off (and I’m passing it on to you, too!).
Function of Beauty is a sulfate-free, 100%-happiness-guaranteed shampoo and conditioner company that allows you to personalize the formulation to best suit your own hair.
Their motto: Shampoo + conditioner as individual as unique as you.
I’m digging it!
You build your own hair profile that takes into account your hair’s current state: its type, structure and moisture level.
Then, you select five hair goals.
Want more shine?
Anything your heart desires, Function of Beauty can provide.
Well, almost anything.
This will not help hair loss, meaning, it is non-medicated and can’t help with shedding hair or regrowing it. This is purely for the more fun aspects of hair care. 🙂
Once you’ve chosen your hair goals, you get to pick the fragrance, fragrance intensity and product color (or go dye-free!).
The best part? Your name gets printed on the bottles.
As someone who is a sucker for anything personalized or monogrammed, I knew I had to try it out.
(Just sitting here typing out this post at work,–ha! Don’t tell my boss, please–in my view I can see my “L” water cup as well as my right-hand rings with each of my kids’ names on them. Those of you with eagle eyes may have noticed the giant “E” letter I have in my kitchen/desk area at home…you can sometimes see it when I film videos there. You know, when you aren’t concentrating on the mess…)
How cute are these bottles?
My Function of Beauty hair profile is:
Oily – I’m not sure if it’s really oily per se…I wash every other day with no problem with excessive oiliness in between.
The hair goals I went with are:
Nourish Roots – I thought both this and the “Soothe scalp” goal would be good for hair loss (clips can be poke-y sometimes)
It took about 10 days from the time of order to arrival at my front door. Not too bad, but I was chomping at the bit to get my package!
I’ve been pleased with the Function of Beauty formulation so far – and I love looking at my bottles in the shower in the mornings. It makes getting up for work that much easier. 🙂
My hair definitely has a bit more shine to it. Also, whereas before I could get away with washing every other day, now I could do it every 3rd day.
Hmm, did I say that right?
So, if I wash my hair on Monday, I can now last until Thursday before I really need to wash it again.
Because the FoB formulation is specific to my hair’s needs, the oils are better-balanced on my scalp.
My hair stays fresher looking, longer – WIN!
Y’all know I glue my topper to my head in the front, though. While I CAN last longer in between washings, I tend to stick to my every-other-day schedule.
Three days’ worth of glue building up ain’t a good look, ya know?
If you want to try out Function of Beauty, check them out here. You’ll save $5 off your order, and I’ll get $5 towards my next purchase, too. 🙂
I got the 8 oz. bottles, and they cost $36. Definitely pricier than a drugstore product and more on-par with salon quality.
Being able to pick my hair needs and fragrance and stuff is worth it to me.
Update: Got my new bottles!! The first set lasted me about seven months. I went with the larger size this time and updated some of my hair goals. Also, I switched up the colors because, well, change is good!
