I’ve been wanting to try Function if Beauty for a while, so I was super excited to get this as one of my Christmas presents!
If you havent heard of Function of Beauty, it’s a company that makes totally customizable shampoo and conditioner!
So, basically, you take a hair quiz, choose the benefits you’d like, pick the color and scent annnnd they’ll make it.
These are my hair profile answers:
- Hair type- wavy
- Hair structure- fine
- Scalp moisture- normal
For my 5 hair goals I went with:
- Deep condition
- Replenish hair
- Fix split ends
I opted out of a color, and for the scent I chose cucumber mint, light fragrance.
There are also different size options, I got the two biggest sizes.
I’ve heard it takes about a week for you to get your customized set, mine did take a little longer because it was right after the holidays and one of their machines broke, but they actually managed to get it to me really close to the estimated date they originally gave.
When you get it, it comes in a cute almost Tiffany blue box, ad you get your shampoo, conditioner, pumps, and a little booklet with your hair profile, goals, a description of each goal with the goal specific ingredients, instructions on the optimal way to use your set and active ingredients on the back.
I usually like to start with scents, so here we go… it’s a bit minty and herbally… reminds me of a spa almost. I think it may be because I picked the light fragrance and I’m picking up on some of the ingredients.
As for consistency, I was a bit surprised because the shampoo is pretty thin, I’ve never used a shampoo that was runny before. My directions say to lather it in your hands first, which I thought was interesting. It does lather very nicely. It also says to shampoo, rinse and repeat. So for my first shampoo I use 3 pumps and for my second I use 2.
The conditioner is nice and thick, it feels really hydrating, just like I like it. My directions say to leave it in for 2-3 minutes, which I do with most of my conditioners anyway. I like to tie it in a low bun while I leave it in, and with this conditioner I actually feel the minty-ness on the back of my neck, it’s like that tingly cooling feeling… I’ve never experienced that with a conditioner, really cool. I use about 5 pumps of conditioner for all my hair.
So far, I’ve used it three times. Haven’t used it their suggested 4-5 times a week, as I usually only wash my hair twice a week. The first time I used it, I didn’t follow the instructions, but did the last two times. Overall, so far so good. My hair is definitely very soft, it feels hydrated and the more I use it, the more hydrated my ends are feeling, which is important. I haven’t been using any other leave-ins or oils on my hair to give this a fair try, and I’m going to continue to do so!
