I have finally created a YouTube account for vlog videos.
ALSO. I recently just performed my FIRST beauty product review for Function of Beauty!
The company even LOVED my promo pic on Instagram!
And NO! This is NOT a sponsored review!

Why I Chose Function of Beauty
I’m a beauty and fashion aesthete. I love flipping through my magazines every month to soak in the latest en vogue. While it may be material, I adore the art behind the trending looks and which colors are in for the season. More recently, I pay attention to what skincare products will benefit my nearly-30 skin (Hint: I love Olay!).
I’ve been going to see a hair stylist since I was about 16. I religiously saw the same woman who was a family friend. She knew me. She knew my hair. We experimented with pink for years.
Once I got settled into my now home, waiting to see her when it coincided with my travelling schedule became enough of a bear that I decided the search for my new stylist must begin. My new stylist loves to experiment with my hair, whether it’s the color, cut or both. I tell her,”Gimmie Rockstar hair!”
Throughout the years, and especially since I became an adult, I asked “What’s that you’re putting in my hair? What does it do? Oh, it’s hair crack and gives me mega volume? I will take a bottle!”
My latest in hair favorites is Matrix Biolage Colorlast Shampoo and Conditioner. It leaves my hair silky and protects my color for at least 2 months. Even my grandmother uses this line. She says it’s the “only damn thing that works for me.”
Once I find a product I love, I’m pretty much married to it. I still love to experiment for fun. An Insider video for Function of Beauty came across my Facebook feed one day, and the concept seemed too fantastic not to try.
So…What Is Function of Beauty?
Function of Beauty is a New York company priding itself on creating personalized shampoo and conditioner customized to the customer’s hair type, hair goals, scent preferences, and favorite color from five choices when you take a hair quiz. I picked pink and purple!
Their mission tagline: CELEBRATE INDIVIDUALITY
You get bottle with your name literally on it.
Oh! And MIT engineers helped develop the proprietary algorithms and data analysis used to create 12 BILLION possible combinations for individualized hair care.
What’s In Function of Beauty?
That all depends on your preferences, but you know what’s NOT in there?
Sulfates or Parabens.

Were the Results Worth It?
I pay as much for my Matrix Biolage combo as I did for my Function of Beauty blends. My hair felt oil-free, silky clean, and smelled like woody musk. It is absolutely salon quality.
I WILL buy again!
