I Tried Custom Shampoo & Conditioner


You guys are in the shower with me. Hey how you doin’. Hello friends and welcome to another video. Today I’m going to be ordering customized shampoo for the hair that is on my head, but let’s be real I’ve also use shampoo for the hair that is not on my head and honestly I think it works better than body wash. So basically a couple of months ago I started seeing ads for this company called Function of Beauty and they basically have you take like an online quiz and then from that they determine your hair concerns and then send you personalized shampoo and conditioner. Currently my hair care routine consists of alternating between dandruff shampoo and normal shampoo, conditioner and then a little leave-in straightening treatment, and I pretty much let my hair air dry and then just like live my life. So I’m really excited to see if this personalized hair care regimen can up my hair routine a little bit and give you that extra oomph. Feel like whenever I think of hair care commercials well, I think of Eva Longoria being like L’oreal Because I’m Eva Longoria. I think my two main hair concerns are dandruff and or the potential for dandruff and then also, the potential to kind of get like fluffy ends. Like I think I need sleekening properties in my shampoo, otherwise it can especially at this length, it can get kind of like floofy at the bottom. If this personalized Shampoo and conditioner can address and solve all of my hair care needs, I mean, it seems like it could be worth it to me. So I think we should take this quiz and find out. Okay, so I’m on the Function of Beauty website I think we got to go to the, yep start hair quiz let’s do that. Question Number One: hair type – straight, wavy, curly, coily. I think I’m straight. I think I’m straight. Question Number Two: hair structure – fine, medium and coarse. It could be medium, it could be medium. Okay, let’s go with medium. Number Three: Scalp Moisture – my scalp can get pretty oily but I also get dandruff I wonder if Dandruff is caused by dry scalp or build up. Many people think that a dry scalp is synonymous with dandruff but either a dry scalp or an overly oily scalp can cause excess cells to clump and fall off forming dandruff flakes. That is an appetizing description if I ever heard one. My scalp is so, that if I skip more than one day of washing, I start looking like a young Severus Snape So I’m going to have to say oily probably. Select five hair goals: Definitely straighten. I do like the sound of shine. Nourish roots sounds like anti-dandruff and so does soothe scalp. I think I’m going to go for strengthen. Maybe one day I’ll be like one of those ladies from the Garnier Fructis commercial picking up stuff with my hair. Okay, that’s five hair goals. Customize your formulas. Number One: shampoo color, all right. We’re all pastels, that’s fine. Yeah, I’m just gonna, we’re gonna to go for purple. Why not. Fragrance. So the one that’s recommended with a little star is the essential oils, so I’m just going to go with that one. For Fragrance Strength: light, medium, strong. I don’t need a strong fragrance, but I like, I like my shampoos to smell like something. Formula Name: First name or Nickname – Saf Nailed it. Choose a size and frequency. Just because I’m just testing this out, I think I’m gonna go for the eight ounces bottle of shampoo and eight ounces bottle of conditioner. Thirty-six bucks for a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner is not cheap. But if you’re paying 18 bucks for like a really good shampoo, I’ve seen more expensive shampoos out there, so we’ll see if it’s magic or not. My order has been placed, these bad boys will be here in about 11 days, and then we can get to sudsin’ and see if the stuff is worth it because honestly, I feel like whenever I try a shampoo that doesn’t quite agree with me, my dandruff lets me know very quickly. Okay, so we’ve got the box, it arrived. Um, welcome to my toilette let’s get into it. Tadaaah! Here is the function of Saf. I’m out here trying to function. Let’s go shower together guys. Let’s get into this, this yon shower. Just kidding you’re invited in. Okay I’m wetting the hair. I know I don’t usually bathe with a bathing suit on but you know, Gotta keep it PG-13 up in here. Alright I’m starting with the Function of Saf shampoo. Okay this smells really nice, it smells very strongly of eucalyptus and lavender but it doesn’t feel too strong on my scalp. You know sometimes when you use dandruff shampoo. It’s like *gaahhh* Like it doesn’t feel like that at all. Is it targeting your dandruff specifically? I put in flakey scalp as a concern so they know about it. I just want it to be like straight and flake free . “Just to help him see what he’s been missing” So this is the Function of Saf conditioner. Oh it smells so good. They feel like pretty much normal shampoo and conditioner I wouldn’t say they feel too much different. Usually I pee in the shower but for you guys I’ll still pee in the shower. Right now, you ask? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. So I’m going to use this for the rest of the week and see if I notice like a difference in my hair. Obviously I’m going to use it till it’s done cause I paid for it, but like I’ll use it for seven days you guys can see if, if it you know, does anything good. Okay, so it’s almost done air drying. It is definitely really soft. Obviously this is just one wash so this isn’t the end all be all, but doesn’t look much different to me. Touch my hair. Whoa! What do you think? That’s actually really nice. Is it softer than usual? It’s like fluffier than usual. Feels a little bit more pillowy. So it’s been a couple days of using this shampoo and my hair does feel really soft. One thing I’m noticing is that I’m going through the shampoo really quickly. I think it’s because I’m a little bit excited about it. I’m like ‘hey look at this fancy shampoo stuff. I’m just going to dive right into that’. I’m going through the shampoo already probably twice as fast as I’m going through the conditioner, but that’s like the story of my life. I don’t want to use up the whole thing like literally in a week When its supposed to last you like a month or something so I just need to calm myself down. Okay so I’ve been using the shampoo for four days. One thing that I’m pretty impressed by is that, usually if I go off of a dandruff shampoo for a couple of days, I will start getting little flakes and then I’ll have to like use a dandruff shampoo like once or twice to kind of get back on track and there are no flakes so far so it is definitely handling the scalp issue pretty well, there are no snow storms, blizzards, drizzles, it’s, it’s pretty calm upstairs. Okay so it’s been about five days of me using the shampoo, and I honestly actually really do prefer it But I did remember why I don’t usually uh, buy expensive shampoo Tyler why do you have so much shampoo in your hand. I like it like that. Why are- It’s so nice, it smells good. Why are you wearing swim trunks? Um Usually I don’t mind when Tyler uses my bath products In fact, it’s pretty expected at this point, but when you’ve got that expensive shampoo though. Since you used this fancy shampoo, how does your hair feel today? Um I can’t really tell cause there is a little bit of gel in it so but it feels really nice and it feels pretty flake free. Do you get dandruff too? No. So? I wouldn’t know. So what do you think of my hair? It’s not like a huge noticeable difference. Do you think that I could pick things up with my hair have you ever seen those commercials? I know what you’re talking about. Garnier Fructis. Yes ! It looks stronger and it does kind of, it has more sort of fibre-ness to it. I’m going to try and drag you by my hair. Lets go. I don’t know what that experiment was that didn’t really do anything. But no it feels, I think that your hair feels very thick and very strong. Like Viking hair. So we’re finishing out the week of using this custom shampoo and things are feeling great, smelling great, like I love everything about my hair right now. The thing that is stopping me from being like Yes! Get it! is the price difference between what I usually get and the Function of Beauty hair care. I’ve been doing some approximate calculations. Basically what we have here is the things that I normally use; I switch off between these two shampoos and then I use this conditioner. So the approximate cost for all of these three things is seventeen dollars and forty-seven cents. That includes about 24 ounces of dandruff shampoo from Target, this OGX stuff that’s about 13 and a half ounces, and this stuff from L’oreal which is eight and a half ounces. So both of the Function of Beauty stuff are eight ounces each, and they cost $36 together so it’s nearly exactly twice as much for these guys. You could probably get close to the results of this by just doing trial and error of like different products at the drugstore But you’re kind of paying for like the ease of it. Right you don’t have to go and try different things and like do the research and stuff. So the goals were to straighten, shine, nourish roots, soothe scalp and strengthen. I think overall it did accomplish those things. I did try and pick up a couple of things with my hair. Yeah, my hair is not long enough to pick stuff up. I absolutely love the way this stuff smells. I got the essential oil smell which to me is like minty, tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender. The other thing I really liked was that I usually alternate my shampoo with a dandruff shampoo but I did not use a dandruff shampoo at all this week, and I did not see any flakes appearing. I really did love using this stuff And I love taking the quiz. It’s hard to show you like the before and after because I don’t think that there’s like a really big marked difference in the way that it looks. Though there was a comment on one of my videos this past week that said ‘your hair looks very soft’. So maybe you can see it. My one barrier is just the price. It is twice as expensive as the stuff that I usually buy for less shampoo and conditioner. I’m definitely going to use it down to the very bottom unless Tyler gets there first, but I’m thinking about it. I’m considering buying more. But if you’re someone who spends about this amount of money on your shampoo and conditioner anyway this could be perfect for you and the quiz is really fun and also I think pretty accurate but also really fun. Thank you guys so much for watching.

  1. You’re very tolerant, if someone else used my shampoo, especially that much of it without asking…I’d beat the sh*t outta them and then make them buy me the huge jugs of it with their own money. They waste my money, I waste their’s

  2. Awesome review! I think I'm sold! I think a reason why it might be more expensive is because it's cruelty free and vegan

  3. Hey Saf, Now Function of Beauty have Black shampoo. I was ordering some for myself and when I saw the black option I thought of you.

  4. You should try the custom shampoo and conditioner PROSE. It’s similar to the one you tried. You should try that one and compare The two. The prose quiz is a little more in depth.

  5. I have been looking for someone to review this brand so I can go buy it, but they have all been sponsored. No one like Saf to give a real review!! Thanks!!

  6. Tea tree oil is highly recommend for dandruff control. I just use straight tea tree oil on my grandmother for her hair and it works great.

  7. Tbh why waste 36 dollars on shampoo and conditioner? It’s not worth it. Like she said you could mess around with drugstore shampoo and conditioners that could come close to the same results. Don’t come for me hoes 💇🏻‍♀️💅🏽

  8. Someone said to mix all the shampoo somewhere and make a frankenshampoo, and while I think it’s a great idea, you’ll need to try it on a dolls hair

  9. Maybe the reason your scalp is oily is
    Since your washing your hair every day, your stripping all the natural oils causing your scalp to over produce oil to keep the oils
    Just a thought! Love your channel ♥️

  10. I bought the Function of beauty a while ago and for me , it seemed to strip my hair. It isn’t a shampoo I can use every day. Now I’m not sure if that’s because of my 5 hair goals I put in or if is just my reaction to the shampoo itself? It did smell fantastic though. I think I’ll stick to my Amika shampoo and conditioner. Awesome video!

  11. What ! Tyler don't use so much and get your own . You should probably start taking care of your thinning hair needs honey , Sorry I said it .

  12. hey, thank you for being you & making these videos. for whatever reason your voice genuinely calms down my anxiety & it helps me to sleep whenever i get too anxious & my insomnia kicks in. thank you ♥️

  13. coudn't help but notice you put your condition a bit high on your head. don't put condition on your scalp, just on the part of your hair you can put in a ponytail, that should help with oily scalp a bit. I too used to look like a young Severus Snape

  14. My Mum: 50$ for Shampoo and Conditioner(8oz)? Wow, let's buy this!
    Also my mum: 36$ for shampoo and Conditioner?! ARE YOU CRAZYYYY?!

  15. Saf, usually people shower 1-3 times a week not 7 times😂 maybe thats why you are going through the shampoo so quickly.

  16. I do spend a bit much on shampoo and conditioner (but hey, I only go to the parlor twice a year), but i have very oily scalp, which can have either big pimples and/or dandruff in it, and my current shampoo and conditioner is the only one who has saved me from the misery. So for healthcare, beauty and stuff, cost is something I am willing to take, as long as it is not that much of a setback.

  17. I knew a girl who couldn't watch anime, so she watched Glitter Force and she didn't like it but she watched cause she was desperate for anime even though the same thing happened every episode, back to the point she would pour shampoo or conditioner into her hand and crush it pretending like she was the villain lol.

  18. Maybe you must use it at least for a month to get exact results and the thing u r doing wrong is u have to apply the foam of shampoo after dissolving it in water not the shampoo directly

  19. Just to be clear. Once I get this, I ain't sharing 😂😂😂
    Coz 39$ in my country is a weeks worth of groceries 😂

  20. I love your "customized things" videos and I didn't know you had this one
    I just bought this a week ago and I'm still waiting for them to arrive
    After your video I'm really excited to try it out (more than before)
    And I do hope that it was worth the money I paid
    But from your results I sure have some pretty high hopes for my shampoo and conditioner now 😂

  21. I got so second-hand annoyed about tyler using sooooo much of it 😂 it's probably cause if I'm so poor that if I got something nice I want to use it lol
