If you know me then you know just how low maintenance my hair really is. You won’t see tons of varying styles or hair tutorials over here because, well, my hair is what it is! The only place I’ve ever had good hair was in college, living in that Mississippi humidity. I swear, it was the first time my hair held curl! Now being in Florida, I’ve noticed that all humidity is not created equal, and instead, there’s just something about that Mississippi air that serves my hair well. So, on a journey to find that Mississippi hair on the regular, I began my hunt to elevate my shampoo and conditioner experience. And who would’ve guessed that selecting random bottles on the shelves of Target just wouldn’t do it? That’s right, everyone knows that. We all do it and we do it often. We pick based on the bottle or the promises captioned on the back without truly knowing if it’ll work or not (or even what our hair needs to live up to its full potential). So long story short, give this girl an online quiz to tailor something specifically for me and I am SOLD. The internet is smart (like, duh!) but niche companies, like Formulate, are asking what we want to better provide us what we need.
After using my personalized shampoo and conditioner from Formulate for several weeks, here’s why I think personalized shampoo and conditioner isn’t a wash (see what I did there?) 🙂
Alright, alright – you guessed it! I took the quiz (or bait in my case), and this detail-oriented soul was so happy. There were questions about age, hair texture, geographical location, what my #hairgoals are and the list goes on! From my responses, they crafted my personalized formula like literal magic. Oh, I forgot to mention that I got to pick my scent too. This doesn’t seem so special, right? Wrong. I got to select how much scent I wanted! I mean, my heart was singing! At the end of this quick process, I knew more about my hair than I ever have and you can see the detailed results, here too. So basically, if you want a refined snapshot of your hair roots, I know some people, k?
But honestly, we spend some much money trying to find our perfect products (and not only for our hair)! This quick quiz removed the guesswork and instead provided me with an everyday essential that feels way fancier and better curated than my random shelf selections ever could be. But let’s get into the nitty-gritty of actually using my formula.
A huge goal for me, and I have to guess for every girl, is to lather less (a.k.a. minimize washing my hair). Mack can’t understand why it’s a process to do but to those shaking your head yes – you get it. With that in mind, I like to wash my hair about two or three times a week max. After testing my formula that first few times, I found that my hair was a little high in shine – which was great – but it wasn’t allowing me to extend my time between washes. I used it a few more times to ensure I was rinsing my conditioner out well enough until I came to the realization that maybe my conditioner formula was a smidge off. I contacted Formulate, explained that I loved my shampoo but that my conditioner was leaving my hair a little too shiny. They spoke my language and immediately re-formulated my conditioner to “take down the coating ingredients” in my formula. It was that easy. I received my new formula and now it’s perfect – just enough grit to give me a few days of in-between before my next wash!
Like good chocolate and red wine, personalized shampoo and conditioner just make sense!
