This product instantly caught my eye. After reading about the product and reviews, I just had to try it. Function of beauty is made in the USA & is a tailor-made shampoo conditioner duo based on your hair type, scalp type and goals for the hair. On top of that, you can also customize it further to add a specific fragrance you like as well as the color of the product. Not only is this product completely personalized (they put your name on the bottle - SO cute) it is also cruelty-free, paraben free, sulfate free, toxin-free and the bottles are 100% recyclable. This product sounds amazing, right? The only question left is "does it work?"
I purchased my product and received it about a month later since they personalize each shampoo and conditioner by chemists for each person who orders it. From the quiz, it was determined that I have straight hair with medium hair structure and a dry scalp. My goals for my hair were to soothe the scalp, add shine, volume, hydration and to take away frizz. Next, I chose the scent peony for my shampoo/conditioner and went for the option of no dye in my products. I purchased the 16oz shampoo/conditioner which retails for 46 dollars and yes that does seem a little, but if you are used to luxury hair care, then you know a single shampoo can cost that much. Also, keep in mind that it is a formula made especially for you, so the price is justifiable.
Upon using the product for a while I ranked each section out of 10 (10 being the best)
- The peony scent is exactly what I thought would it be. It is for sure a medium strength fragrance just like I asked for and left a light floral aroma throughout the bathroom.
- The shampoo is quite thick and does not lather (because it's sulfate free). The conditioner, however, is somewhat more lightweight.
Quality: 9 /10
- I would say that both the shampoo and conditioner are of excellent quality. However, I do wish the conditioner was a little bit more creamy. Also, the bottle it comes in isn't that sturdy but since it is 100% recyclable i'll let it slide. The pumps that came with the shampoo/conditioner are both good but like the bottle I just wish it was a little more durable.
- Just after my first use, I saw a difference in my hair. It was noticeably softer, more volumized and lighter in feel. I have an extremely dry scalp, and I instantly felt relief. Another thing I noticed is that the peony scent stayed in my hair quite nicely. Everything that was a goal for me with my hair almost immediately manifested. The most significant thing for me is that my hair feels healthy, which is always a plus. I also find that because of the shampoo and conditioner I now feel like I don't have to use so many other hair products or style it as often with hot tools.
Overall I would say that these products are worth the hype. They feel luxurious in the hair, smell great and do what they are supposed to do. The one thing I do have to say is that I wish the bottles were of better quality and that the conditioner was creamier. The packaging is cute as hell I just wish the bottles were thicker and more durable.
To conclude, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a change in their hair care routine. I am more than happy with my purchase and plan on purchasing again. I consider these products my new holy grail shampoo/conditioner and don't plan on trying anything else anytime soon.
