I started using Function of Beauty a few months ago and wrote a review on my other blog. https://katiedidweb.wordpress.com/2018/11/30/shampoo/
I hate the review haha So I hope to redeem it in time.
First order Summary:
No Dye, essential oils, goals- volume, anti-frizz, curl definition, oil control, nourish roots.
I’m on my second order of the shampoo and I still really like it, but it isn’t working for me the same way the first order did. I’m looking at trying another brand just for the heck of it. If I don’t I’ll just switch the formula up again.
The first round I didn’t like the smell, but my hair seemed to really like it. On the next one I changed the color to orange and made the smell peach ❤
The smell is AMAZING! I switched up
Color – Orange, Smell – Nude (p)each, Goals: volume, anti-frizz, curl definition, oil control, strengthen.
So my main problem is my hair seems to be getting oily quicker… I could just be crazy. The first formula had my hair feeling almost like it does when you use a clarifying shampoo. This one feels a little more gunky. I really didn’t change it much, but I think strengthening is not working for me.
I really really like and encourage this movement into custom beauty. Not everyone is EXACTLY the same so why shouldn’t we have something made to tailor like clothing? Only for our skin and hair. I also like that because they aren’t some huge commercial beauty co. the ingredients might be a little more carefully chosen. i.e. w/out sulfates, silicons, ect.
Function of Beauty does use some silicone – I am currently looking at trying Pure Mine because they don’t use silicone. There is much debate about the use of some of the chemicals and I am by no means an expert or even remotely educated in chemistry haha I simply did a tiny bit of research and found that people with curls have been moving away from silicone…there are some awesome Youtube videos by some BEAUTIFUL women with BEAUTIFUL hair who talk about why they have moved away and what to look out for. I have found that the advice is solid and I am sooooo happy to be getting back to products that aren’t full of crap.
Here is one of the videos that taught me what to look out for – https://youtu.be/NAN7KE6RvGI
This hair adventure has been fun and is far from over haha I have given up on dying it after my allergic reaction to purple shampoo when I bleached it…. BUT I’m still lookin’ for the best products for me.
Let me know what your experience has been!
