I have always been self-conscious of my hair. Unless I was having a miracle worker style it, I always felt like it was dull, flat and unmanageable. The only time I really felt good about my hair was when I was pregnant with my son. That didn’t last too long though, because when my son was a couple of months old, my hair started falling out on the sides, and that beautiful body and shine disappeared with the clumps of brunette as they washed down the drain ( not kidding- we went through SO much liquid plumber!).
Anyway- as I was going through the “losing my hair blues”, I was contacted by an upcoming customizable hair care company called Formulate. Coincidence? As a blogger and influencer, I was able to partner with them and be part of their launch last summer. Although I was super excited to try something new on my hair, I still felt self-conscious because my hair was such a wreck. I literally had bald spots on the sides of my head, that I had to hide by changing the way I parted my hair. Luckily, it began to grow back but I ended up with little hairs sticking straight out! I had little hairs on the top too, and felt like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals. My hair also felt super thin and limp, and I hated it. I constantly wore my hair in a ponytail and just told myself it was fine because “ That’s a mom-do anyway.” which is total BS btw.
So I went online and filled out their quick, simple hair wizard to tell them a little about my hair and what my goals were (ummm…hello, growth!?) I even got to choose the strength of the scent, which I chose a strong citrus scent.
Maybe this stuff would be a miracle worker?
A few weeks later I was very excited to see a Formulate box on my front porch. I didn’t use it right away because #momlife and showers are not a daily guarantee, but the next day I couldn’t wait to try it out!
I love it! Their products are sulfate, paraben and cruelty free – which usually means no lather, but this shampoo does in fact lather when I use it which was a pleasant surprise ( I always feel like my hair isn’t getting clean enough when my shampoo doesn’t lather.) Formulate shampoo and conditioner left my hair looking shiny, feeling thick and helped tame my crazy Alfalfa flyaways! But do you want to know what I love most about it? I love that it is that it is customized for ME. Not my sister, not my friend, not the lady in the shampoo aisle with the gorgeous curls about to pick up the same bottle of shampoo and conditioner that I just put in my cart. ME!
The best part about this is I get to offer my followers a chance to win a onetime shipment of customizable shampoo and conditioner of their own! The link to my giveaway is below, and is open until November 12th.
