Oh, my hair.
I am one of 5 children in my family, and somehow I got the crazy hair gene. I sported an epic afro when I was a little girl, which now I think was pretty adorable. I quickly gained the nickname “cotton ball”. The constant teasing made it nearly impossible for me to appreciate the head of hair I was given. As I’ve grown up, it has been funny to see my hair go from my least favorite thing about myself, to the thing that makes me feel most confident. As I’ve learned to style my hair in the way that I like, I’ve come to appreciate how blessed I am to have full and unique hair. Though I’ve gone grown to love my hair, I would lying if I said that it still wasn’t a hassle to deal with. For the last few years I have tried many products to help the health of my hair. I’ve struggled with having a constantly itchy scalp and dry hair. Last spring I began using a leave in conditioner, but it still didn’t seem to fix my hair problems.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out a personalized hair care system. They had me at personalized. My hair is anything but the norm, and it was appealing to know that this formula would be catered with my wild hair in mind.
I was led through a simple hair assessment on Formulate’s website. This consisted of them asking me what my hair goals were and the current problems that I was facing. My favorite part was being able to pick out the scent of my shampoo and conditioner, along with deciding how strong I wanted that scent to be…. strong of course!
Receiving my personalized shampoo and conditioner:
I’m not sure if I have ever been so excited to open a package. It truly felt like Christmas morning! I loved the decorative touches and the shape of the bottles. I could tell that this product was high quality, and it made me excited to go hop in the shower.My thoughts on Formulate
During my first wash, I was blown away by how amazing it smelled. I personally chose the Verdant, strong. For my Disney lovers: I don’t know how they did it, but it smells just like the ride Soarin’ at Disney World. So not only did I enjoy the smell, but I also felt a little bit of nostalgia with it. The shampoo left my hair feeling clean for the first time in so long (I’m talking just came from a salon clean). Mid-wash I decided to try and go without the leave in conditioner I had become so dependent on. After just 2 washes, I was able to conclude that I would never need that leave-in conditioner again.This is my favorite hair care product I have ever used. I know this may sound like an exaggeration, but it really isn’t. For years I have searched for something to help my hair embrace its wild nature. I like being different now. I like being unique. It only makes sense that my hair care system is unique as well.
