FORM Beauty is the new kid on the block of natural hair products. Black owned by Tristan Walker, FORM gives you a personal guide for what products will work with your hair. To be honest, there’s only about ten products on the lineup and the change between hair textures is usually what shampoo or conditioner they suggest. The styling products are the same for everyone, only dependent on if you style your hair with heat or not. This is a review based on type 4C natural hair.
I’m pretty lazy when it comes to my hair. I don’t want to spend anymore than an hour doing it, whether it’s styling or washing. I want it done as quick as possible. So I stretch washing and styling my hair out. The bottom line is there are no avoiding have to take steps to do Type 4 hair. But I can minimize what I need to do daily to walk out the house looking cute while keeping my hair healthy. I wash my hair then lightly moisturize and twist it to rock a headwrap for however long I feel like it. Then re-dampen and further moisturize to braid it down for cornrows that will lay flat under a wig. This is not necessary, I just like to wear wigs and this allows me to stretch and style my hair at the same time. Then when I’m ready to rock my real hair out, take out the braids, and style it, typically into a bantu knot out. It works great for me, because it allows me to do several get up and go styles over the course of week while keeping my hair in moisturized + healthy state.
With FORM, this was made all the more easier. The shampoo was fine. The Revive conditioner was a definite winner, leaving my hair very soft. The leave-in conditioner is in a creamy spray for, providing a great balance for more tightly coiled hair that usually needs to layer products on to seal in the moisture. That the leave in is light enough to work as a spray means it doesn’t weigh the hair down and lead to product build up or stiff hair. The Curl Creme, is also light but within the product lineup it does it’s job. I LOVE LOVE LOVED the pomade, that I used to cornrow my hair down. When I finally got around to styling my hair a few days later is a great sheen came bursting through from the pomade. It’s not to greasy or dense, it’s right where you want it to be. I don’t know if I used enough of the gel because I got a really light hold, but it didn’t dry my hair out, so I plan to use more than next go around.
All in all, the proof of the quality of FORM hair products is all in my fro. My hair was divine and I absolutely love the results.
Do you need to get the whole line? Not really. If you’re just looking to test a few, I would go with the Revive Conditioner, Leave-In Conditioner, and Pomade. But do remember that product lines like this are built to work seamlessly together. FORM did just that. You can find FORM Beauty products here.
