I was so excited to try this brand and it was a total flop for me. My hair felt terrible after using this for a week or two. I decided not to go through customer service and worked these products out of my routine.

The products were fun to personalize and smell amazing. Overall, though, I don't feel any difference in my hair so I'd say the product is similar to any off-the-shelf shampoo.

Feedback

I love the idea of personalizing what the bottle says but it has to say "Function of" before whatever word you choose. I wish they'd just let you write whatever you want and leave their wording off (because their brand is elsewhere on the package).

Very long waiting time and the product was ok.. definitely not worth the price tag.

I tried the brand's products to help my hair get used to New York City, and it had great results. It smells incredible and lasts a while. The website is quick and easy to use with personalization options for everything from fitness level to pollution where you live, and everything ships in custom bottles and packaging.

Feedback

It is a little too expensive to continue purchasing and the packaging had a lot of plastic.

So the experience is really cool, the website is slick, aesthetic amazing and the packaging is really instagrammable, I just think the shampoo per se did not do much to my hair and the price is too high for me.

Unexceptional product that didn't meet expectations and definitely didn't achieve any "customized hair goals".

Feedback

Formula felt and smelled cheap, and didn't leave hair feeling clean and healthy.

One of my favorite hair care brands out there. I have used Function of Beauty shampoo for over two years now (even before my former employer, L Catterton, invested in the brand) and have no plans of churning as of yet :-)! Love, love the packaging and the branding. The product quality is also great - my hair is very long and tends to be very dry; my custom shampoo+conditioner+mask hydrates my hair without weighing it down. I also love the smell (have used the milkshake / lavender).

I've used FOB for a few years now and while I love the packaging, customization, and price point for the size, I feel that I need to move on and try something new. When I first started, I could tell a difference, but now it is not anything game changing or making a clear difference in the state of my hair.

Feedback

I don't like how many sponsorships they have and it seems like this product doesn't work for everyone.
