Function of Beauty - Review

My hair sucks - there I said it. I never know what to do with it and the only time it is "styled" is when I basically burn it to death with a hot tool (guilty). SO when Function of Beauty offered to send me a customized set of shampoo and conditioner that fit exactly what I wanted fixed with my hair I did a little happy dance. This is exactly what I needed - an expert helping me get what I want out of every single wash. I have been using my customized set for a few days and I wanted to share a review for those who might want to try it out too!

Pros:

The biggest pro for me was the adorable bottles they came in. It actually says "Function of - Emma" on the bottle - how cute!! My other two pros were 1) the easy to use website guided me to get exactly what I wanted (test it out here) and 2) The scent I choose was delicious (cucumber mint). My hair profile is straight + dry and I can say it has been adding tons of moisture into my hair! It was delivered in no time in the cutest box. I will for sure continue to use these products!

Cons: 

The bottles are too big to travel with and while I wish I had my shit together I am not the type to go out and buy smaller ones and transfer it into. Also having straight hair I am not sure what a shampoo and conditioner can do for that. My hair still has a little wave when it drys despite it truly being "straight" (I blame this more on genetics than the product). 

Overall I am so happy I tried this out. The bottles alone are worth way more than what you pay and the product has been working well for me! Thanks Function of Beauty for saving my hair!

Big Sexy Hair Product Review

     After a good response to my last hair product review I am back with another! Again while in Vegas I received lots of new hair products to try out. I was so impressed with Big Sexy Hair products and I know that this is a popular brand. I wanted to share my thoughts on my three favorite products and give you guys an idea of how they work!

1 - Volumizing Dry Shampoo

  • I am a firm believer in the power of a good dry shampoo. Being the lazy ass I am washing my hair is not always on my agenda. This product is made for girls like me. Dry shampoo soaks up the excess oil in your hair leaving it with a clean feel and look. This product in particular adds some umph to the roots. I use this by sectioning out the top layer of my hair. I spray this at the root and shake until it is absorbed. I repeat this as necessary. I highly recommend this product and have used it on the daily.

2 - Powder Play

  • I used to tease my hair everyday because naturally it lies very flat against my scalp. By doing that I was ripping out hair left and right and doing more damage than I every thought possible. Obviously I was not about to let my hair hang limp so I replaced my daily tease with this product. It is a powder that I apply to my roots and shake into my hair. It adds texture and poof and I swear by it. Just be careful when applying it because it comes out like baby powder and can make a mess if you are not careful.

3 - Spray and Stay

  • A good hair spray is a girl's best friend. After spending two hours on those perfect curls you want them to last all day. This heavy hold hairspray does just that. I personally love the smell of this product but it is a little strong. It doesn't leave my hair crunchy but it does produce amazing results. I also use this product after braiding my hair to keep it from having little pieces poking out throughout the day. Another highly recommended product!

Overall again SO impressed by this brand. The price point for these is a little high but the extra couple bucks is worth it for a product that is very high quality.

Chi Hair Products Review

       When I was on the reality show Global Beauty Master I received quite a few products. Some of them were these Chi products. After using them three times I decided to write a review for you all. I am no beauty blogger but I do have opinions and would love to recommend/warn you of certain products I use myself! So lets get into this

1 & 2 - Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner

  • I have used these two products in the shower two times now. The shampoo is great because it lathers but does not strip the hair and leave it with that straw like texture when it is overly cleaned. I like the smell because it is not too potent. As for the conditioner I have no strong feelings. My hair is super dry so I prefer to use a hair mask as my conditioner and this is not a heavy duty conditioner. I can see it working great for someone who doesn't have overly dry hair because it does smooth my hair and leave it feeling soft.

3 - Leave in Conditioner

  • This is a great product from this line. I always use a leave in conditioner and I used to use my holy grail Its A 10 leave in product. Now that I switched to this one I may have to permanently change. What is great about this product is it does not leave my hair greasy. I use a good amount more than recommended because like I mentioned above my hair is like the desert. I like to use this then let my hair air dry I find it works best that way.

4 - Iron Guard

  • This product is not from the keratin line but is a popular product by Chi. I have to say not being a hair expert I am not sure how much this is effecting my hair. I use it before I curl or flat iron it. I personally am not a fan of the overly greased and crunchy texture it leaves my hair before I apply the heat. Once the heat is applied that does go away (unsure if this is how all heat protectors work) but that couple minutes really grosses me out. Hopefully this is helping my hair stay healthy but no immediate results can be reported.

5 - Silk Infusion

  • This is my favorite product from the line. The silk infusion is a clear gel that can be used on wet or dry hair. I like to use in after I let my hair air dry with the leave in conditioner on. It moisturizes my hair like no other product I have ever tried before. I apply it to the bottom of my hair because it is a very greasy consistency I know it would not go well in my roots. Hands down best hair product from Chi.

Overall I am impressed. The price point of these products are great for a high end system. I will definitely be repurchasing and recommnend them to you all!
