Looking for a great way to take care of your hair?  Let me tell you about Formulate!

When they first contacted me, I was just at the beginning of testing out shampoo and conditioner for my hair.  You see, in midlife, things like your hair begin to change.  I was looking for a way to be more proactive.

I tried several brands and just didn’t find exactly what I was looking for.  I reached back out to Formulate and learned more about their process of creating shampoo and conditioner based on my hair.  Say What?  Yes, I answered a series of questions:

  • What color is your hair – Brown with highlights
  • Thickness – Fine
  • Texture – Wavy/curly
  • Length – Short
  • Scalp Sensitivity – None
  • AND the biggest question of all – what are your concerns about your hair?

My answer to the last question was on of pure vanity – Hair thinning.  I know it will eventually happen and with my fine hair, I wanted to start to do something about it now.

When the package arrived, I was thrilled.  But, my nature is to not leave a bottle half used so I finished what I had before I started using Formulate.

First of all, the bottles are a work of art.  The black hexagon shaped bottle holds the shampoo and the white one holds the conditioner.  In the box was the story of my hair with a list of the ingredients and why they chose them.  Also included was their instructions for using the products.

The Bottles

Upon opening the bottle of shampoo, I immediately smelled a wonderful orange blossom scent.  I know this scent because at our last home, we had mock orange blossom bushes between our house and our neighbors, and I loved that smell in the Spring!

Here are the ingredients they chose for my hair:

  • Sweet Almond Oil – Rich in Vitamin A, B1, B6, and E.  These vitamins maintain healthy cell membranes, promote hair growth and blood circulation to the scalp.
  • Coconut oil – The richest natural source of medium chain fatty acids with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that are nourishing for both your hair and skin.
  • Hemp Seed Oil – This contains fatty acids, proteins and vitamins for moisturizing, strengthening and hair growth stimulation.

Oh, and that orange blossom scent – Burgeon aromatic extract!

I have been using the shampoo and conditioner for the past several weeks.  I have not been using anything else except an apple cider vinegar rinse twice per week to remove product from my hair.

My hair is very shiny and manageable.  It also looks and feels thicker. 

The Shine is Real!

I am very pleased with both the shampoo and conditioner.  The texture of the shampoo is very light and sort of opaque in color.  It lathers well and when I rinse my hair it feels clean.

The conditioner is also very light.  I put it on after shampooing and let is set for just a couple of minutes then rinse.  My hair feels soft and clean.  I don’t feel any residue remaining on my hair.

Love the Shine!
