Formulate Haircare – The Customization Process
In order to get your haircare to you, you need to let Formulate know what your hair concerns are, and your specific needs. When visiting their site, you enter alll your hair concerns in. My profile looks a little like this;
This is where the fun kicks in! You get to pick everything you want, what you need, and then little extras, like the scent of your products! My formula has green tea and honey scent, and it is SO good. I get so many compliments on how good it smells, and the scent stays with you all day. If you’re not into scents, or like a lighter scent, they even offer to let you customize the intensity of the scent. There are so many scents to choose from, so you’ll find something you like no matter what your taste is. Once you’ve completed your profile, your blend is complete and on the way to you!
Formulate Haircare – The Review
The packaging; SO CUTE. Everything comes in gorgeous geometric bottles, sealed for shipping. Once they arrive, each bottle comes with a pump to swap out for the cap. They look unique, pretty, and modern. Definitely not something that I have seen from a lot of other brands recently.
Once I received my products in the mail, it was time to get to testing! I had previously been using the DevaCurl system, so there was high standards to live up to.
First thing I immediately noticed, was the scent. Oh my goodness. I have never had shampoo and conditioner smell so delicious. The scent is refreshing, bright, and so GOOD. I want candles and lotions and everything in this scent if I could. It’s just THAT good. My scent is Green Tea and Honey, and trust me, it’s a winner.
The formula is thinner than other shampoos and conditioners I have used, but that isn’t really a bad thing. Per the instructions I received with my products, I used 5 pumps of each product. I co-wash my hair, so I do not use shampoo daily (too much for my curls!) but did use the conditioner once if not twice a day.
The conditioner absorbs quickly, and I didn’t feel that “residue” that I sometimes felt after using other conditioners. It also made my hair easier to brush through, and it felt softer after using it.
Formulate Haircare – The Results & Final Opinions
Trying out customized haircare is TOTALLY worth it! For me, it has helped me to get more curl definition, and better moisture into my hair! With finicky, dry, and unmanageable hair, it has seriously helped to keep my hair looking good, especially now that we are headed into the dry and cold months. I will need ALLLL of that coming my way, because this is when my hair is usually at its frizziest and craziest!
Overall, I definitely recommend Formulate! Treat yourself and try out some custom haircare, see what it can do for you!
