In this world of mass-produced goods, we all appreciate something that is personalized for us. When it comes to haircare, personalized products are a blessing because everybody’s scalp, hair type, and the environment they are exposed to are different. This is why I was thrilled when Bare Anatomy approached me to try out their personalized shampoo. Here is how my experience was, right from ordering the product to trying it out.
How To Order Personalized Haircare From Bare Anatomy
When you visit Bare Anatomy’s website, you will be asked to answer a quiz so that they can create your hair profile. This includes questions such as what climate you live in, whether you have chemically-treated hair, how much hairfall and dandruff you experience etc. The quiz is pretty extensive and covers all aspects of what could govern your hair health. You also get to choose the key benefits you want your personalized haircare products to provide. For example I chose my hair goals to be damage control, oil control and shiny hair. Based on your hair profile and hair goals, the team will pick the key ingredients for your personalized haircare products. You will also get to pick the colour and fragrance of your products from a wide range of choices. I picked the shade Cherry Red and the fragrance Vanilla.
Last but not the least, the brand also prints your name on the products. This makes it perfect for gifting to your friends and family as well.
Once you have filled in all your preferences and answered your questions, you can place your order. The brand will then start formulating your products. I received my product within 10 days of placing my order.
All the products from Bare Anatomy are SLS free and are meant to be gentle on the hair. Of course, the key ingredients of the product will be determined by the hair concerns and hair goals that you mention while some base products will remain the same. The brand provides a full list of ingredients on the bottles that you receive. The key surfactant is Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, which is a mild alternative to SLS.
Since I have a very oily scalp and fine, damaged hair, the brand chose the key ingredients for me accordingly. My shampoo was formulated using Pine Leaf extract, lappa root extract, rosemary and apple cider vinegar to control oil generated by the scalp. It also contained a bunch of nourishing ingredients to nourish and add shine to my hair, such as almond oil, macadamia oil, argan oil, Vit E, Biotin, Shikakai and avocado oil. As you can see, the brand adds tons of nourishing ingredients, including natural ingredients, to help you with your hair concerns.
My Experience with Bare Anatomy Personalized Shampoo
First of all, everything from the packaging to the colour and scent of the Bare Anatomy shampoo was so me! I love the boozy vanilla scent of this shampoo and the rich pinkish red colour is unlike any hair product I have tried before. Coming to the actual efficacy of the shampoo, it lathers pretty well and leaves my scalp squeaky clean without making it dry or itchy. I also find it quite gentle for the lengths of my hair, which is great as I had asked for a shampoo that would help with damage control. In terms of oil control, with this shampoo the oiliness in my scalp was definitely delayed by a day, which is great considering how quickly my scalp gets oily otherwise. My hair also looks slightly smoother and shinier than before.
I am sure that my hair health will further improve as I finish the bottle. I have used it 5 times till now and am already impressed. In the future, I would also like to purchase an entire haircare set from Bare Anatomy. The prices of the products are a little high, but the quality of the formula has convinced me that you are getting good returns for your money.
