I’m sure you’ve all seen Function of Beauty’s Insta-worthy shampoo and conditioner bottles all over social media and beauty blogs. I fell in love as soon as I saw their pretty pastel coloured products. What can I say, I’m a sucker for anything that’s going to look good in my bathroom. What swayed it for me, was seeing that Caroline Hirons had bought some. If it’s recommended by Lady H, it can’t be bad!

So who are Function of Beauty* and what makes their shampoo and conditioner so special? Well they’re an American company that believe that shampoo and conditioner should be as unique as you are. So the products they offer are made especially for you, bespoke to you requirements. They’re also sulphate free, cruelty free, paraben free and toxin free. 



So how to they do it? Well it’s pretty easy, you take a hair quiz! This asks you all about your hair type - is it wavy, thick, straight etc. Then you choose 5 goals - with options from oil control, hydration to soothing scalp. I chose Thermal Protection, Anti-Frizz, Colour Protection, Shine and Deep Condition. Then comes the fun part - picking the colours and scent! There’s a gorgeous array of colours and fragrances to choose from, you even choose the strength of the scent! You can also have dye and fragrance free. I chose pink for my shampoo, which is shimmery and lilac for the conditioner which it a flat colour. I chose the scent called Feeling (f)ineapple - which is a gorgeous combination of coconut and pineapple! I chose strong scent as I can’t thing of anything better than smelling of pina colada!! You then give your concoction a name and choose what size bottles you want, then you’re all set! There’s a number of size options and you can also have each bottle different sized, if you so wish. So no more running out of conditioner with half a bottle of shampoo left! I chose to have them both the same size, 500ml. This cost £45 (£50 including shipping). This seemed to be the best value option. You can order as a one off, or save money by setting up a subscription (there’s different time limits to choose from). Then you sit back and wait for your delivery! Mine were despatched within 4 days. It took just under 2 weeks from ordering to arrive which I thought was pretty quick! There were no customs fees to pay either, which was a relief! 



Visually they did not disappoint! The packaging was cute, you get cards with all the details of what you’d chosen and they even threw in some stickers and travel bottles to decant into! (You could buy these as an extra too.) The most important thing that they included were pumps for each bottle. They make sure to leave enough room in the bottle so that it doesn’t overflow when you attach them. It’s the small details that I love!

The scent lived up to my expectations too. It’s like holiday in a bottle! I couldn’t wait to try them out and washed my hair the day they arrived. The shampoo lathers nicely, I used about 3-4 pumps. I’ve got medium length but very thick hair. It doesn’t leave hair feeling stripped. I was able to run my fingers through my hair easily whilst rinsing, which is always a good sign! It didn’t tangle or matt my hair at all.
The conditioner is a nice consistency, not runny but not too thick that it’s difficult to get out the bottle. Again I used 4 pumps, which I applied and left on for about 5 minutes. It rinsed out easily, my hair felt light, incredibly smooth and nourished. My hair looked great - winner!






The question is, will I buy them again? The answer is definitely yes! I've set up a subscription already.
