Besides the insane amount of pollen sitting on my car right now, and maybe the runny nose I’ve had for about 3 weeks now, is there really anything better than Spring?! I went to the mall the other day and literally, everywhere I turned was neon pink and orange, and the most fun prints I ever did see. It’s the anticipation of school being out, the vacay’s to pack for, and the many late summer nights ahead. I absolutely adore this time of year!
Okay,y’all. I have something I’ve been dying to share with you after the first time I used it… I had the opportunity to try out a custom formula for my hair type and goals with a brand called Formulate. There’s many things that I’ve been given to try, or that I’ve went and bought for myself to see how good or bad it was, and I have to say with all honesty- this shampoo & conditioner combo is a GAME CHANGER. No, seriously. As I was rinsing the conditioner out of my hair for the very first time, I could FEEL the difference. How soft and easy to manage my hair was, while it was still wet!
Whenever I am trying a new hair product, I like to just use it (if I can) and leave out the other products so I can really tell if that exact product is making any difference or not. So after shampooing and conditioning my hair the first time, I left out my root pump and oil after towel drying. You can ask my husband, I bet I told him 3x that night before bed how much I loved “that new shampoo they sent me” lol. I even made him feel of my hair! So if that doesn’t tell you how much I really truly love this brand, I’m not sure what will.
So what’s the big deal?
Well, first off, this shampoo & conditioner combo is going to be different from anything you’ve ever tried before because it will be formulated to the exact needs of YOUR hair and the goals you want for YOUR hair! There’s no two alike. When you click on their site, you’ll see the link for a quick survey – and when I say quick, I’m talking 5mins tops. It will ask you things like – what is your hair type (frizzy, straight, curly, etc), as well as ask you how often you wash your hair weekly, etc. Once you get through the details of your hair, then you go on to decide what type and how strong of a scent you want in your mix. I went with a tangerine smell, but I didn’t want it strong. It is PERFECT for what I was looking for.
And let’s chat real quick about the customer service. When I finished my quiz, it told me what would be in my formula and I noticed one of the ingredients was going to be almond oil. Some of you may remember me talking about it in the past, but I have a severe peanut allergy and got anxious as I thought they would not be able to adjust my mix. I reached out to my sales rep and told her what I was concerned about, and she let me know there was nothing to worry about, and that she would reach out to the chemist personally, and tell them to make sure to leave the almond oil out. How awesome is that?! You definitely can’t get that kind of service from any big name brand, that’s for sure.
And lastly, I want to discuss the results of using Formulate for about 5-6 weeks now. Long story short- I’m obsessed. I will 100% be ordering more once I run out of these bottles. My hair is softer than it’s ever been since I started coloring it back in high school. The texture is so much smoother, and it’s always got much less tangles than before. I can go a good 4-5 days without shampooing before it’s gets to be too hard to style. You do have to shampoo twice with this brand, but you can really see the difference the second lather because all the gunk is gone, and the shampoo can really get into the pores and cleanse like its suppose to!
