Texas heat, extreme daily workouts, and lots of sweat. These are the constants in my life. As a former college athlete, I understand what it means to pour your heart and soul into something and leave it all on the field. But that also means I expect those same high standards from companies and products that promise results. With the bar set high, I decided to try personalized haircare from Prose.
What is Prose?
Prose is a haircare routine that is tailored just for you. They are able to completely customize your formulas using an online consultation that you take online before ordering. Make sure to answer these questions as honestly as possible, because your products will be made with ingredients customized for your exact needs.
For example, I answered questions about my age, natural hair texture, whether my hair dries quickly or slowly, hair loss, scalp sensitivity, and other details about my style habits. I like that their formulas go beyond just oily or dry hair, they are completely custom and really get to the root of my concerns to create a routine that’s perfect for me. It makes it easy to find the products I need without wasting money on ones that aren’t right for my hair.
Prose Products Take the Guesswork Out of Haircare
I put consistent effort into being in great shape, and I take a lot of pride in my appearance. No sense in doing all that hard work and not showing it off! I look at my hair the exact same way. It is a major part of who I am as a person, and one of the first things people notice when they meet me. It’s why I take a lot of care in making sure my hair is exactly the way I want it.
My entire haircare routine usually takes about 30 minutes, which I know is longer than some guys, but my dreads reach halfway down my back and even in the Texas humidity, they tend to get really dry. It’s important that I take time with them and use a product that will not only clean my hair, but also moisturize it. I tried over-the-counter products but most are extremely drying and have added ingredients that do more harm than good for my specific hair.
I had heard great things about Prose through a friend so I decided to give it a try. My first shipment included a pre-shampoo mask, shampoo, conditioner, and Root Source™ supplements. Each of these had ingredients that were specifically tailored to my hair and any issues I was hoping to fix. As I mentioned before, my hair tends to be very dry, so my conditioner had oils derived from specialty plants that really helped to keep it moisturized. I was also sent the growth-boosting, scalp-balancing supplements since my dreads can be hard on my scalp. These will help to keep my roots strong and my hair growing.
As far as using the product daily, I love both the smell and consistency of it. It’s not too heavy and feels great on my head. Prose will also update your formula seasonally if you live somewhere with changing weather.
Having such a busy schedule, the last thing I want to do is waste my time and hard-earned money trying dozens of different drugstore brands searching for one that works.
With Prose, I know I’m getting a product that’s custom-made based on my exact needs, and that makes me a loyal customer. The best part is my products are shipped free directly to my door on my schedule (plus I get 15% off for life as a subscriber). One less thing to worry about is a big win in my book!
Personalized haircare has been a game-changer for me, and I’d bet most men would feel the same way. Prose gives you that fresh-from-the-barbershop feeling every day, while making your routine as easy as possible. Products that make you feel great, do what they advertise, and save time? I’m all in for that.
