Hello, Wild Pretty Things!
Waking up with bad hair really sets the tone of your day. If you are like me, bad hair leaves me feeling down and makes me much less productive. Honestly, even on the best of hair days, there are hair concerns that I have and dwell on. I have tried so many masks and oils yet I still couldn’t figure out what to do. Formulate, the best shampoo and conditioner company around, reached out to me and offered some help in that department. Continue reading for my review!
How It Works!
Formulate engineers the best shampoo and conditioner customized towards combating your hair concerns. They also take into account the climate where you live. I really loved hearing about this because your environment plays a HUGE role in the health of your hair. This is a topic that most hair products don’t touch upon so it’s great that they take that into consideration.
They also have an app when you can adjust your shampoo and conditioner formula based on any changes in your hair or your environment. This makes it so easy to pivot and adjust to any changes.
Signing up was super easy and really makes you think about the current state of your hair and what you would like to improve. To get your formula you take a short questionnaire about your hair and your environment. The questionnaire starts with basic questions like your name, e-mail address, age, gender (You can feel free to not answer this question, too!), natural hair color, whether you are graying or not, hair length, the pattern of your hair (curly, wavy, kinky, etc.), thickness, level of oil in your hair, hair lose, and scalp sensitivity. They also ask how often you use your shampoo and conditioner.
Next, they ask for your zip code so they can see the typical humidity, temperature and UV Index. Mine is listed below!
Next, you select all of your major hair concerns. They give you a ton of options, see below!
Lastly, you select a scent and the strength:
Then you are all done! They provide you with a profile of your concerns, the products that will help you achieve your hair goals, your scent profile.
My Hair Concerns
I dye my hair pretty regularly so dryness and damage from the dye are my top 2 concerns. I have also noticed that my hair has thinned a bit in the last few years. Because my hair is so dry and fine, I always have trouble keeping my hair from getting super greasy. I was really looking for a shampoo and conditioner that would help me balance my hairs HP so that I don’t have to wash it as often.
Right away I impressed by the packaging and design of the product. A lot of brands don’t take the experience of their packaging into consideration, but to me it goes a long way. I loved the shape of the bottles, they are very unique and fun. When I opened the bottles, I was blown away by the scent – It smelled so amazing! I chose a strong scent and it did not let me down. The bottles each come with a lid and a pump for convenient dispensing. This is great for it you are going on a trip! You can remove the pump and apply the lid so that you don’t waste any of the shampoo or conditioner goodness.
Pre Dye and Hair Cut
For me, the real test of any hair care product is right before I get my hair dyed or get a hair cut. This is the point where the most damage and dryness has a accumulated. When my hair is at this stage it is not easy to work with and needs to be brushed out every few hours. When I started to use Formulate, my hair was in particularly rough shape so it was a great test.
I used the shampoo and conditioner for a week before I went and got my hair cut and dyed. In that time I did notice that my hair was more manageable, but it wasn’t perfect. Now, this could 100% be because I only started using the product. But, I did expect it to be a little better within the first week and I didn’t get that. However, I was satisfied to get even the smallest amount of manageability for that week. Formulate isn’t a miracle cure for BUSTED hair, so I got a hair cut and a fresh dye and started new.
Post Dye and Hair Cut
The second best test of any hair products is the week and a half after I get my hair dyed. After I dye my hair, it feels like heaven for a few days because of the conditioning in the dye my salon uses. However, typically, after those few days go by I start to see the damage from the dye. With Formulate, I was so excited to maintain more healthy hair after the dye job. Usually it turns very brittle and it takes weeks of masks to bring back some of the life. With Formulate, I have smoother and healthier feeling hair and I still do.
The Best Shampoo And Conditioner
Overall I have been so happy with the results of this shampoo and conditioner. I love that you can change the formula at any time if you feel like new concerns emerge. Also, I really loved the scent and the strength. So many products don’t have a lasting scent, this was something I really enjoyed. I loved how healthy my hair feels after a few weeks of use, even after being dyed. For issues such as thinning, it will take a little longer to see the results fully. However, I am hopeful I will see positive results with continued use.
