Function of Beauty Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Happy #BEAUTYMONDAY! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you had a spectacular weekend and aren’t hating on Monday TOO much (but it’s totally cool to hate a little bit). I know I usually use Monday’s to talk about my fav beauty products or a tutorial, but today I’m bringing you something different (but still beauty related I swear). I’m talking about Function of Beauty, a hair care system that is totally customized for YOU. I was a tiny bit skeptical that someone could formulate a hair care product based entirely on an online quiz, but I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s jump into this Function of Beauty shampoo & conditioner review.

Function of Beauty Shampoo & Conditioner Review

About the company.

“You should have ownership and choice with the products you use. We put your name on your bottles because theyโ€™re developed and formulated for you. We celebrate you as the unique individual that you are; who you are and what you want – beyond your hair type, goals and preferences.”

My first impressions. 

So, before I got my set, I have to be honest. I wanted it 90% because it says my name and it looked pretty. I KNOW I’M SUPERFICIAL. I GET IT OKAY. But it’s true. I loved the way they looked, with their pretty bottles and bright colors and personalized title. 

First things first, in order to get your set, you have to take an online quiz on the Function of Beauty website. They ask questions like: hair type, hair structure, and scalp moisture. I chose straight, fine and oily because maybe one day I’ll find a shampoo that lets me go more than one day in between washing my hair (a girl can dream). Then, it wants you to select 5 hair goals. I can’t remember the exact ones I picked but I am positive oil control and volume were at least two.

MY FAVORITE PART OF WAS CHOOSING THE COLOR BECAUSE Y’ALL KNOW THAT I WANTED PINK. Part of me almost wanted to choose the dye-free one and be all eat pray love and organic but I couldn’t because I loved the idea of pretty pink shampoo too much, so if someday I die from something related to dyes in hair products, I think I’ll be okay with it.

You also get to choose which scent you want, and I went on the safe side with their essential oil mix. It has notes of eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender, rosemary, peppermint and spearmint. I was not disappointed, because it smells DANG amazing. I also chose the “strong” fragrance strength because I like to be able to smell my hair all day like I just left a salon.

So, now that I have this personalized bottle of shampoo, was it any good?

Actually, this shampoo was awesome. The peppermint, tea tree and spearmint made my head tingle in a good way. Like the shampoo was actually doing something to my hair which I loved. I am on day two of not washing my hair but it still looks really good (and I haven’t even used dry shampoo yet). Usually I can barely make it every other day because of the oils on my scalp. I love the smell and can smell it for quite a long time before it fades which I personally like. If you are someone who DOESN’T want to smell the shampoo, you can opt to get the light fragrance option. 

All-in-all, I vote this shampoo to get a 10/10 in appearance and a 8/10 in how it works. I knocked two points off because at $36, you only get two 8oz bottles, so I think the price is a little steep for everyday people. But since it works, I would definitely recommend taking the plunge!

    This is a really neat product. I’ve never heard of it, and I agree, $36 is a bit much for 8 ounces. The concept is really cool, though.

  7. Katy SkipTheBag | 20th Feb 17

    I probably would have picked pink too!

  8. Neely Moldovan | 20th Feb 17

    Oh I need to try this. Always looking for new hair products.

  9. Rachel | 20th Feb 17

    Love it! I heard about this company last year and have been wanting to give it a try. So exciting that pink’s an option now!

  10. Jenniffer | Life is Messy and Brilliant | 20th Feb 17

    Is it cruelty-free? I’m always on the lookout for new products to try. By the way, I LOVE the theme of your blog.

    • Taylor Mobley | 21st Feb 17

      I’m not sure about cruelty-free Jenniffer, so I’ll have to look into it! GREAT question. Also thanks so much!!!

  11. Beth | 20th Feb 17

    I had never heard of this brand, but it sounds pretty good. So I looked it up and it looks like it is cruelty-free which is a big deal. I might splurge and get some soon, because cruelty-free brands are worth it!

  12. Greta | 20th Feb 17

    I love the pretty and pink bottles! I’ll definitely have to check to see if this shampoo works with my hair type!

    Never really heard about the brand but looking at those cute pink, customized bottles, I went straight to their website! I loved your review and since I have the same hair concerns as you, I might just order mine too! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Anna nuttall | 21st Feb 17

    I never heard of these before – wonder if you can get them in the UK? I like it that pink xx

  15. Chelsea | 21st Feb 17

    The peppermint sounds soooo good! Thanks for sharing!


  16. Rachel Ritlop | 21st Feb 17

    I got this for my mother in law and have been dying to try it for myself!!

  17. Hannah | 21st Feb 17

    I love that they are pink! I am definitely going to give these a try.

  18. Mistle | 21st Feb 17

    I have never used any of their products before. I have heard so many great things about them though!!! Don’t feel bad about wanting a bottle with your name on it. I would feel the same way! I am super picky with what I use on my hair but I may have to give them a try out soon!

    This looks like an amazing product – I didn’t even know custom shampoo was a thing – unless you DIY it. So cool!!!
