I can spend hours doing my makeup and picking out my outfit, but when it comes to doing my hair, I like to be as maintenance-free as possible. 

I am lucky that my hair is straight and has a little wave at the bottom of it. I have been blessed with beautiful hair and I love it.

Sorry to brag, but I am very lucky that I am able to let my hair air dry and occasionally in the morning, and if there are any little kinks in the back of my head from sleeping, I can straighten them out with my flat iron.

But my least favorite part about my hair has to be my oily scalp.

I usually only go two days without washing my hair. On day three, my hair has to be up in a ponytail.

Formulate reached out to me to see if I would be willing to take a questionnaire and talk about my hair and hair goals so they could customize a set of shampoo and conditioner to meet my needs.

Formulate’s shampoos and conditioners are sulfate-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and made in the USA, which made me even more excited to work with them.

The first step into getting my shampoo and conditioner was to fill out the questionnaire. It was very detailed asking for my hair type, hair color, hair texture, hair moisture, hair length and my scalp type (oily or dry).

The next set of questions asked me about what I wanted to change about my hair care routine and my hair.

My first instinct was to answer that I wanted to my scalp to be less oily!

Within the first wash, I was blown away by the lack of oil my scalp had. I was able to hold off from washing my hair more than once a week without it looking gross! I was shocked. My friends immediately noticed that my hair looked different and commented on it, saying they could not stop staring at how healthy and shiny it looked.

Back to the questionnaire, I also noted that I wanted to strengthen my hair, mend split ends, hydrate my hair and make it shiny and beautiful.

At the end of the questions, I got to pick the scent of my duo.

I picked the “At Dawn” sent. My hair now smells like a rose garden.

When the shampoo and conditioner arrived in the box, they came with a card that said exactly what my shampoo and conditioner was going to do for my hair: mend split ends, hydrate my hair, protect it from heat and strengthen it. It also gave me instructions about how to wash my hair; five pumps of the sulfate-free shampoo, and five pumps of conditioner, as well as detailed instructions about massaging the shampoo into my scalp, everything I have known how to do since infancy.

The little card also gave me a list of all the ingredients in my duo. The three main ingredients that were included in my duo were Vitamin E, Coconut Oil and Polyquaternium-37.

From the first use, I was impressed with my custom shampoo and conditioner.

The two don’t later and are thin in consistency, due to their lack of sulfate. I had initial concerns that my hair would not feel clean, but I have been so pleasantly surprised.

I cannot believe I can go five days without washing my hair even though I take Pilates and spin classes weekly!

While I was walking to class the other day, my friend stopped me on the quad and said that my hair looked so bouncy and beautiful. I thought that was so sweet of her, and I am so glad I am able to see a difference in my hair, just like my friends.

My hair looks and feels great!
