As for my mix I love that they provide you a full detailed list of ingredients. All formulas are sulfate free, paraben free, dye free, preservative free and curtly free! Yay! I’ve been using this new FORMULATE combo all of January. I actually also chopped my hair chin length on new year’s day! It was a month of change! Since using my new mix I love how soft and manageable my hair has been. This time of year my hair is notoriously dry at the ends and greasy at the root. I feel like it sends my oil glands into overdrive! Since using FORMULATE my hair has been holding fabulous curl, looks effortless when I air dry and even sleek when I blow dry it straight. It actually feels the healthiest it’s ever been! I’ve never had more hair-confidence! It’s voluminous and glossy. Part of this is due to cutting off my damaged dead ends, but I can tell how thick and healthy my hair feels! My long hair was always in a tangle out of the shower and in the mornings - I can’t say it’s one or the other, but there have actually been a few days that I don't even need to brush my my hair it it’s so buttery smooth! Buh-bye tangles. My #hairgoals were to mend split ends, prevent thinning, strengthen, protect my color, and support length! I would say all of these goals are being met. I naturally have brown, fine super straight hair that leans oily at the scalp and dry at the ends. Also included in their survey is scalp sensitivity - and I am not sensitive in this department, and have not had any negative reactions to either mix. When I originally took the quiz I had long hair - so the only difference I would include for my next order would be that it’s now short. Other than that, you use the shampoo and conditioner exactly as you would any other. Wet your hair, work the mix into your scalp and rise, following up with conditioner on the ends of your hair and rinse with cool water. Easy!
While I am still a fan of New Wash (you can read about it here - as my family still uses it regularly.) I also had success with Monat, which is a hair care brand I’d been using since summer and love and use a lot of their styling products. I would also still recommend the affordable luxury Target brand Kristin Ess to anyone who will listen! But, what I found with FORMULATE is how awesome it is to meet my specific needs down to the littlest details. Let me know if you all have any questions!
