Customized makeup palette, customized skincare, customized beauty box, the list goes on. But have you ever thought about customizing your hair care? Raise your hand if you agree; not all hair, flat, curly, wavy or anything in between, are created equal. I had the opportunity to try a new-to-me brand by up and coming haircare company founded by award-winning stylist and salon owner Jodi Dery, ProfilePro. Intrigued? I presume you are so scroll down for more information!
So how does it work? it all starts with a quick survey which will help ProfilePro’s team to understand your hair dynamics. For example, I have natural waves, medium thickness, some days it’s frizzy, and with dry scalp especially during colder months. I was also asked as to the type of fragrance I prefer for my customized shampoo and conditioner. I chose jasmine scent (other variants include citrus, coconut, lavender, vanilla). And yeah, even the name I want printed on my bottles! All in all, it took me less than a minute to finish the entire questionnaire, easy peasy.
Upon checkout, you have the options to buy the combo at a discounted price of $24.95 (10 oz each, when you subscribe to them, $34.95 regular retail) or try out the travel-sizes at $9.95 (2 oz each). For reference purposes, I received both actual and deluxe sizes with my name on them.
Up close, you can see my hair’s not-so-secret serial numbers. It must be cool to witness how they came up with a formula totally unique to me ha? So the nagging question is, do I love Kathryne’s Shampoo and Conditioner combo?
For the most part, yes! While it did not totally control my frizz and dry scalp, I still love the way this pair enhanced my natural waves (they look more obvious like I came from the salon, that’s without styling!). I also enjoy the scent which isn’t overwhelming (soft powdery jasmine). The shampoo lathers quite a bit while the conditioner is thick just the way I like it. The affordability is noteworthy too, especially in comparison to department store and/or mainstream brands. On a side note, how I wish they added tea tree or peppermint extract to tame my dry scalp because so far these are the ones that worked for me in the past.
