I’ve been scrolling around on Instagram and came across a brand called Function Of Beauty. I was immediately compelled to it because a blogger I’ve been following for awhile, posted her customized shampoo and conditioner that she bought from them. The color was perfectly pink and not the ugly bubblegum pink we all hate. So as the pink freak I am, I looked into the brand and researched it.
At first, I felt like it was too good to be true. You pick your hair concerns (frizz, curly, straight etc), the aroma, the color, and the bottle says your name on it! I am so used to buying shampoos at the drugstore or hair salon that I felt like this might be a scam.
However, I’ve sat on the idea and shared this product with a friend who ultimately got a personalized shampoo and conditioner for me for my birthday! Thank you thank you thank you!!
Rate Overall: 8/10
After a few weeks of using this product, my hair (naturally straight with some body) is noticeably better! I don’t usually style my hair unless there is a special occasion or I just feel like it (usually, never). Typically I shower before bed and go to bed with my hair damp. When washing my hair with the shampoo and conditioner I normally use, I would wake up with my hair looking frizzy and it was very obvious that I just slept on wet hair for the last eight hours. When using Function of Beauty’s I did my normal routine to ensure that I got the most accurate results.
I slept on my hair wet and the next morning, I woke up with my hair looking like I straightened it and it was so smooth, no frizz, and extremely soft. I was super surprised! I didn’t expect to see results like that so fast. The only thing I dislike about the product is the packaging. It comes with two pumps for easy dispense, although the pumps are too small so you need to pump the bottle a lot to get the desired amount out. The pump bottle also take a bit to retract so its annoying to wait every time just to get some product out, especially if you’re in a rush. This is my reasoning for getting rid of one star.
The other reason I got rid of another star was because of the smell. When customizing the product online, they give you a choice of three scents you can choose from. I chose essential oils because I thought, “this could never smell bad”. I love the smell of lavender and pretty much every essential oils. However, the smell is extremely potent with tea-tree oil and peppermint and hint (I can barely smell it) of lavender. Along with picking the scent, you can choose the intensity of the scent as well. I picked medium and I felt as thought it was overbearing from the bottle but in the hair its just right. If I had to redo it, I would chose another scent that they offered.
And yes, of course I chose the pink color 🙂
