Product Review: Function of Beauty

Happy Friday! I decided to do a product review today to wrap up the week, and picked my current shampoo and conditioner, Function of Beauty. First of all, I would like to say that I have a difficult time finding hair care products that don’t break out my scalp. When I find something that works, it will work for a little while and then my head will reject it. So with that being said, I was a little nervous to try another new brand.

I found out about Function of Beauty on a beauty Facebook page that I am a part of. A girl had just purchased her own shampoo and was telling us about it and would give a review once she tried it. After she praised the shampoo, I decided to give it a go.

The first thing that I thought was neat about these products is that they are personalized to your taste. When you go to the website, you take a “hair quiz” where you basically describe your hair type and what you want in your shampoo. (ex. soothing scalp, lengthening, body, frizz control, color protection, etc) Once you finish the questions, you can pick the color of your products, as well as what scent and how strong you want it to smell. You are able to pick between 8 oz or 16 oz bottles, so if you use a lot of conditioner like me, you can get a bigger bottle and a smaller shampoo.

It did take a while for my order to come in the mail, but they are making your products especially for you so it’s understandable. When you get your product, they send a pump for each bottle that way it’s easier to use. They also give you a list of things that you picked for your product, as well as what they used in the product to get that quality.

Something I thought was neat was the directions; it said to use the shampoo twice because the second time it should lather more to show that your hair is clean. I didn’t think it was possible, but it worked! After my first shower with the new shampoo, my hair felt so soft and tangle-free. It also felt stronger, and was shinier than it has ever been with any other brand. My hair actually looks healthy instead of crunchy! Even after my hair dried, it was still soft and without knots (a BIG deal with my messy head) After multiple days of using Function of Beauty, my scalp even felt healthier. There was no oil or scabs on my head!

Overall, I love Function of Beauty and highly recommend it to anybody who is having a difficult time finding a brand for them. They are a little pricy, two 8 ounce bottles (shampoo and conditioner) being $36 and the 16 ounces being $46, however I find that it is worth it. My hair has never felt better. It’s also a product specifically made for you, so if you don’t like something about it, you can change it with a click of a button on your next order. Function of Beauty also does referral links, so you can tell your friends and family to get discounts on your orders. They also have a subscription option so if you’re like me and forget to buy shampoo you can set it up to just automatically come to you when you think you’ll run out.

So, have you tried Function of Beauty, or were you planning to try it? What is your favorite brand of hair care products and why?main_image.jpg
