We all know I never wash my hair, but when I do, I only use products I know will keep my hair looking great for the five or six days I don’t shampoo. But I decided to take a risk and try out a new product. For the last five weeks, I’ve been using custom shampoo and conditioner from the new company Formulate.
I had super high hopes for Formulate’s formula (oooh that was fun to say) because they specifically engineer your shampoo and conditioner to account for your natural hair, your hair goals, where you live, and your lifestyle. Sounds promising right? So let’s get into this review.
No sulfates. Sulfates are the things in shampoo that make your hair feel knotty and slick while trying to wash it. I haven’t used a shampoo with sulfates in years so I was glad to find out Formulate doesn’t use sulfates. Formulate is also free from preservatives and parabens and is cruelty-free. These are all super important to me because I try to live as natural a life as possible and try to live as vegan a lifestyle as possible.
You choose the smell and they are all as strong as you want them to be. I chose medium and it’s not overpowering, but you know how in books people in love say their crush’s hair smells like oranges or something? Well, since I chose the Freshly Squeezed scent, my hair really does smell like oranges for the first day or so after washing!
The different scents they have are : Green with Envy (green tea and honey), Verdant (grass, lilies, eucalyptus), Tidal (coconut, sea, warm sand), Shoreline (spice, citrus, sea), Freshly Squeezed (sweet orange, tangerine), Burgeon (blooming orange blossom), and At Dawn (green apple, pear, rose).
