My (Rather Well Used) Function Of Beauty Shampoo

Hey guys! Welcome back!

So, for this week, I figured I’d elaborate a little more on a product I wrote about after trying, but fell more in love with the more I used it. For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you may remember when I posted my blog about Function of Beauty back in June. (If not, feel free to click the link and read all about it!). At the time, I gave it a week to test it out before sharing the results with you guys. I hadn’t switched hair products in years, and didn’t really consider how long it would take to start seeing changes being made — a week certainly wasn’t enough time to see full results.

However, two months later it’s safe to say I’ve now thoroughly tested out this product, and I love it. As in, I’m so sold I honestly don’t know that I’ll ever switch shampoo or conditioners again — and with Function of Beauty’s model, I probably won’t have to. When choosing your products, you select your hair type — including texture, structure and moisture, as well as your five main concerns you wish to see improvements in your hair. Meaning, if you see something you want to change, all you have to do is select a different concern more applicable to your current needs in your next batch!

On top of all this, you get to choose from a variety of scents and colours, truly customizing the products and making them your own. You even get to label the bottle with a nickname — everything about it makes it feel so personal and cute.

I heard about this brand months before I got the chance to test it out — I literally waited as patiently as I could for my old products to finally run out so I could give these a try. As I noted in my initial post, I certainly saw some immediate effects — enough to keep me interested in buying more. I wasn’t sure if it was just that I was so hyped up about trying out this brand, but at first even with the results given, I still felt it didn’t quite live up to my expectations.

Unfortunately, I sometimes tend to be a bit impatient. The fact that I saw immediate results, really, should have said it all. Two months later, my hair is the healthiest it’s been in — well, possibly forever. It’s smooth, shiny, and constantly looks the best it ever has. On top of that, even though its been a few months since I had a hair cut, my hair almost feels as fresh as if I had just returned from the salon — I have minimal problems with split ends and tangling, which is almost always a problem for me. Furthermore, my ends look just as healthy as my roots, which is a nice change from what my hair has been from the last few years (especially with all the bleaching I put it through) — fried at the top, and fried-to-straw at the bottoms.

This product, no joke, has transformed my hair. It is the most beautiful and healthy it’s ever been — I always envied girls with long, shiny, healthy hair, but for the first time in years my hair is finally transformed into one of my favourite features. Plus: their products are Paraben-Free, Sulfate-Free, Cruetly-Free and Vegan! This means these products are better for you, your hair, the animals AND the environment! It’s a win-win.

If this sounds like the change your hair has been needing, be sure to check out Function of Beauty here!

I hope you’re all having a lovely Tuesday!

La Biosthetique Luxury Spa Oil and Therm-o-flat

Hey y’all! Happy Tuesday!

This week’s Tuesday Favourites is dedicated to two of my favourite hair products from La Biosthetique — their Luxury Spa Oil and Therm-o-Flat. My hair is so, so high maintenance; for the last three years I bleached it blonde, which was super damaging and required high upkeep. A few months ago I went back to brunette, but my hair is still pretty fried from all the bleaching and requires a lot of care.

My hair type is fine, wavy and dry — but I feel these two products would likely work wonders on almost any hair type! The Oil in particular may not work as well in oily hair, however the Therm-o-flat heat protectant I feel could work well for anyone.

The oil, personally, works wonders on my dry, fried ends. It really helps with moisturizing and helps keep your hair looking shiny. The best part is, this stuff lasts forever! The bottle isn’t huge, but the oil is so powerful you barely need any at all. When I switched from the previous brand of hair oil I was using to this one, I noticed an immediate change. This stuff isn’t heavy or sticky, so as long as you use it sparingly the odds of you accidentally weighing down your ends or making your hair feel oily and gross are slim. Just a few drops through your ends before bed time and before I blow dry my hair and my hair immediately becomes softer and shinier.

The heat protectant is also a huge favourite of mine. It’s super light and there’s no feeling of residue in your hair once you’re done blowdrying and styling it. It comes in a pump bottle, which I love, because I never feel certain with spray-in heat protectant that I’ve got all my hair covered. As well, it lasts through blowdrying into styling, so no need to add more in between! Back when I was blonde, I could almost never straighten or curl my hair without completely destroying it. But with this I found that the damage done was significantly less enough I could start styling it again.

I personally buy these through my hairdresser, but you can find La Biosthetique products on their website here!

Happy Tuesday guys!

xoxo,
