Rave Review: Prose – My (Customized) Hair Care Routine

Prose Hair

Hello lovely readers! Thank you for joining me on Mind Over Mango! Today I wanted to touch base on my newest hair care routine. By stating the obvious, my hair is dyed. My hair is naturally a medium chestnut brown color. Being a Brunette by birth means that in order to have any real color payoff, I need to bleach my hair first before applying any kind of dye. That being said, it tends to get really dry and damaged over time. I’d love to think my hair is invincible, but no one’s hair is susceptible to long-term damage when you over process it as much as I do. After a while, my ends will start to break off, and it’s really just not a fun situation. So when Prose hair care approached me to try their products, I was intrigued to see if all the hype about customized hair goods were really worth it or not.

Prose asked me to try out their newest products to see how they would work with my dyed (and damaged) hair. They stressed they wanted to create the perfect formulation of their products for me, and that they wanted me to be as authentic as possible about my feelings on how their goods worked. I was told their products work on dyed hair as well, which is important since many products can’t be used with color-treated locks. Since everything is customized though, Prose claimed they have the ability to make killer products that won’t drain my color or further damage my hair.

Prose Hair Care Unboxing

The verdict: I absolutely love these products! I’m honestly really excited about them too. I have been stuck in the same so-so hair routine for a long time, and while the products I was using before were okay, they are mass manufactured and sort of a one-size-fits-all for my hair type (and my hair really isn’t just “one type”).

What is so unique about Prose is that every detail is customized. Upon visiting their website, you will be given the opportunity to take a free, no-obligation hair consultation. You will be asked various questions about your hair type, your areas of concern, and even the environment that you live in and your zip code. All of this helps Prose determine what your hair’s biggest needs are, and which ingredients will be best for those needs. You can even choose what scent you want them to be! (I chose fruitissime and it smells amazing!)

For me, I need to treat and replenish, add heat protection, smooth out my rough strands, and maintain the vibrant colors in my hair, among other concerns. Each package comes with three products: a pre-shampoo hair mask, a shampoo, and a conditioner; all to be used in that order.  Every one of these products has their place in your hair care routine. For example, the hair mask is meant to be used before your shampoo, because it helps all of the natural ingredients in the shampoo and conditioner penetrate deeper into the hair by opening up the hair follicles. You can watch my IGTV video I created at the bottom of this blog post to see a full unboxing experience of what you can expect when you receive your customized package in the mail!

Prose Customized Hair Care Results

The results of using my customized Prose goodies have really impressed me. I was genuinely shocked as to how soft my hair was after just one use. Although Prose approached me to try their products, I 100% back them. It doesn’t take much convincing when your dyed hair (that was breaking off in one-inch strands) starts coming back to life to determine that you’ve found a really cool and worthwhile brand.

Prose Hair Guide
All of Prose’s packages come with a detailed pamphlet outlining everything you need to know about your new customized products!

I encourage everyone, female and male (it’s uni-sex!) to take a whirl at customized hair products. If anything, try out the free consultation to see what your biggest concerns really are, and how Prose will help you fix all of your hair troubles. In the off chance you receive your products and they don’t seem to be doing what you need them too – no worries. Prose will happily direct you to one of their hair experts who will discuss what’s not working and find a better formulation for you. They will even pay for any return charges, so you’ll never have to worry about paying more than you should.

Prose Hair Care Works

Additional perks of using Prose:

  • You can choose if you want your products to be vegan, silicon free, gluten free, fragrance-free or all four!
  • Prose is cruelty-free, sulfate free, paraben free, dye free, mineral oil free, and GMO-free.
  • There is always free shipping on all of your orders
  • Did you notice I wrote the word “free” 10 times?
  • You can expect all of your goodies to arrive within just 6 business days.
  • Your hair will thank you (and smell amazing too)!

Check out my IGTV from my Instagram above for the full unboxing experience that I referred to earlier. As you can see, I ended up really happy and satisfied with my results, and my high hopes I had unboxing all of these goodies did not let me down.

P.S. My voice doesn’t actually sound like this??? My excitement and stage fright must have got the best of me at the time. 😉

Thank you to everyone for checking out this week’s blog post featuring my newest friends at Prose! If you try them out, then let me know! Also if you have any questions, shoot me a comment or a message and I’d be more than happy to answer anything you need to know.

Until next time!

xoxo Sara

    Great post girl! I’ve heard of this brand before and I was wondering if it was worth it or not. I’m going to take the consultation and see what they say! My hair could always use at least a little improvement! Thanks for sharing.

    I LOVE the photos you took. Such a vintage feel to them. I’m a sucker for pretty product photography too. 😆

    • September 23, 2018 / 6:22 am

      Thanks Caitlin! 🌟 I actually love how they turned out too (I’m biased of course) but I thought they did have that retro modish/70’s kind of vintage vibe to them! 🔳 I was at my boyfriend’s parents’ house and they had this tile on their floor and I was like – this is PERFECT! 😻 I couldn’t resist! Thanks for checking out my blog post by the way girl, and welcome! 😀

    • September 24, 2018 / 5:12 pm

      Thanks Carolyn! 😀 They are very cool. I’m happy too, they work very well. It’s great to have a customized routine!

      Hi Laura, that’s awesome! I’m guessing you might have blonde hair. Either way, subtle hints of colors are always so fun! You can get away with more of that type of style too when it comes to the workforce. 😉

Come chat with me! I'd love to hear from you!
