I need to talk to some one about to ship my prouduect later day

Mallory @ MSA

Hi Joan! We recommend reaching out to the Prose team directly for help with your order: [email protected]

Monika

I would love to see a review here on different hair types. I’ve been on the fence about trying it for a while now.

Sandy

Got about HalF way through my order and my hair started falling out by the handfuls. Went back to my old shampoo and conditioner and hair loss stopped. I need to get out of subscription and can’t seem to get it done! Please help!

Staci

Would love to see other’s experiences. I have straight, thick, long, fairly coarse hair and have tried one full bottle. I wanted to like it so much & don’t know if it is one of the ingredients I chose or what, but it made my hair fall out. I have a fair amount of shedding with normal shampoo too, so at first didn’t contribute it to Prose. Went back to using my old shampoo and shedding decreased drastically. Tried my Prose again and so much hair loss. Would love to know if this happens to others.

Leah

I’ve tried this and I have fine, flat, thin blonde hair (lucky me lol). It gave my hair unbearable static. I liked the scent and the idea of it but just wasn’t a win for me.

Prose

Hi there! We take our 100% satisfaction guarantee very seriously and we’d love to help make sure that your custom formulas are perfect for you.

Please reach out to us at [email protected] or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram! Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂

Mandy

I’ve tried several custom hair care companies and Prose was my absolute favorite shampoo and conditioner by far, and the only one I re-purchased! I just purchased the hair oil, but haven’t used it yet, and haven’t tried the hair mask, so I’d love to see this reviewed!

Prose

We love knowing that you’ve been enjoying results with your custom filled products, Mandy 🙂 We’re so excited for you to use your unique blend! We love to stay with you on your hair journey, so please don’t be a stranger!

Calico Cat

Yes, please review. I like the idea of using people with different hair types but also, how about before and after photos?

Mellissa

I have very thick, wavy, oily hair and have tried Function of Beauty. It was fun to customize the color (I chose aqua) and scent (pineapple!).

I didn’t find it was better in my hair over any other (much cheaper) shampoo and conditioner. But I’m enjoying the gorgeous color in my shower and the scent lasts throughout the day.

It didn’t feel watered down which sometimes happens with cheaper shampoo. Now that I’m half way finished with my second bottle, I’ve added water to the shampoo bottle to water it down a bit more. I have found the thickness too thick in the shampoo’s formula. It would just plop into my hand and not move as well as I would have liked when I put it into my hair.

I did order a second set of Function of Beauty as the scent was so nice but I told myself that would be the last time. 😉

I’d love to see a review on this company.

Faith Abdel

I would love to read your review on this!

Your Friends @MSA

Thank you for letting us know, Faith!

Dani G.

I would love to see it reviewed. I read a positive article about it in a magazine but you can’t always trust them to be objective.

Amanda

Yes and I second using multiple hair types. It’d also be good if you selected scents and I scented to give a good comparison on the smell.

Joy

Yes please! I’m very very curious about this

Ragan

This sounds a lot like the haircare part of Reflect.com, which probably dates me because I think that site’s been shut down for like 15 years.

Erin T

HA! I remember them!!

Drminniecooper

If you do review it, please use multiple reviewers with multiple hair types.

Joy

Great idea!

Jenny

I tried it out and found it utterly inadequate for thick, curly hair. Smelled good though. So if you are going to review it, pick somebody with unruly hair who has high shampoo and conditioner demands. LOL.

Prose

Hi Jenny! We’d love to take a closer look at your custom filled products and help make sure that they’re perfect for you.

Please reach out to us at [email protected] or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram! Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂

Jenny

Meanwhile, I’d like to see how it does for someone with thin, fine hair who needs some volume.

mtvb

I’d like to see reviews, please. An 8.5 oz shampoo and cond for $50 is steep if the sub doesn’t deliver.

Mary

It seems like this and the smoothies that were previously posted would be more of a product review than a subscription review since you are essentially getting the same thing every month. That makes it a little less interesting to me personally so I would vote no here.

Marne Orenich

Hi Mary-
If we end up reviewing this one, we’ll write it as a one-time long-format review sort of like this one: https://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/persona-nutrition-vitamins-review
The products would be used for a prolonged amount of time (a week, a month- something like that) to give an idea of how it works over time.
Hope that makes more sense!

Shannon

I would also like to see the function of beauty shampoo and conditioner subscription reviewed. I’m interested but agree it’s very expensive so I would want to know it’s good before I try it.

Emilia

I don’t care for expensive hair stuff, I use drugstore items and whatever I get in my subscription boxes. Others might be interested, though.

Victoria

If you do, I’d like to see it compared with Function of Beauty.

Maureen E Whalley

Is there a savings to the subscription vs. buying one offs?

Prose

Yes! Members of our Subscription Program will save 20% on each recurring order 🙂

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

– The Pros

Rachel

YES! I’ve wanted to try this but afraid of the outcome.

Val

I’d love to see this reviewed. I’ve been thinking about trying it.

Julia

Only if you purchase the box at full price. For transparency, of course.
