Miscellaneous Finds SOS By JLife Haircare-Good For The Whole Family



I had the privileged of trying out a hair care line called JLife from Andrew Jose, a London celebrity hair designer.

Not available in retail stores, it’s exclusive to some salons and online.  The philosophy of JLife is to design a “product in a range designed with the hairstylist in mind; for customers to use for themselves to keep the look and feel created for them and their lifestyle.”  jlifelogo-300x24

I tried the S.O.S Leave in Conditioner which works on any hair type.

I have very straight hair that is on the greasy side.  While it’s usually shiny, I do have a problem with combing out my shoulder length hair unless I use a conditioner.  Unfortunately, every conditioner I’ve tried leaves my roots greasy, so I tend to only condition the ends.


I tried the S.O.S. on both wet and dry hair and found that it left my hair silky, shiny, detangled and all that without any residue at  all!

Truly miraculous as I’ve never been able to use any type of product on my hair without it weighing it down and making it greasy looking.  My hairstylist has tried every designer brand in their shop and I’ve tried a few on my own.  I’ve had to go with naked hair my whole life – just blow dry & go.  I’m thrilled to have found a conditioner that does what it says it’s going to do and without leaving any residue and without an overpowering scent.  The S.O.S. has a very light and pleasant scent.

S.O.S. Leave In Conditioner detangles and provides UV protection while moisturizing and nourishing your hair.  It uses Sea Moss and Provitamin B5 as its main ingredients.  It comes in a generously sized 10.1 oz bottle with a spray top.  It takes approximately 10 sprays to do my hair – I have very thick hair that’s below my shoulders – it appears it will last 2-3 months at my current usage.  It works wet or dry and is a favorite of swimmers.  Since my hair is straight, I use it wet.   Someone with curly hair may prefer it on dry hair.

The JLife website is very attractive, easy to navigate, and full of information.

You can shop by hair type making choosing the right product easier.  The JLife line is a complete hair care system – Modeling Clay, Gel, Strengthening Iron Protector, Mousse, Volumizing Spray, Serum, Sea Salt Spritz, Spray, Wax, Hairspray, Shampoo and Conditioner, Liquid Styler, Grooming Cream, and Intensive Conditioner.

I’m enjoying the S.O.S. Leave in Conditioner and highly recommend it.  The price tag of $20 is reasonable for a salon product that works.

Ageless Haircare by Jlife!


No matter how young we are, haircare is still important and necessary. Jlife haircare bridges the age gap.

JLife ,Your Life, Your Hair , Your Style, Ageless, and Timeless. Here is a review By Granny Janet.

I have been following the easy directions on the back of the can of JLife Swell Mousse. I wash , towel dry my hair, shake the can and dispense a small amount of mousse into the palm of my hand and enjoy the fresh clean scent as I apply the white foam all over my hair.

I love the way my hair looks and feels since I have been using JLife Swell Mousse! I have medium/thick hair, it is not thin and it is not thick. Even though it is recommended for fine hair it has been working great on my hair. It adds fullness and body. Very important to me is that it does not dry my hair out and it is not sticky. I got the same fantastic result when I used it on my hair when it was dry. I was impressed because it held my style and my hair had bounce. I would purchase JLife Swell Mousse and I would love to try their other products!

JLife offers a full range of products for hair care, shampoo, conditioner, mousse, volumizing spray, shine spray, liquid styler, wax, serum, gel, clay. You can choose your hair type and get product recommendations here.

Urban Beauty Online Reviews JLIfe Perfect Wave: DeFrizz and Define Curls




Product Review: JLife’s Perfect Wave | “Define & De-frizz Your Curls”


JLife Hair Care

I was contacted to try a product from Jlife Hair Care. I had never heard of Jlife so I quickly hit the Internet to find out as much as I possibly could. The creation of the line is based on renowned celebrity stylist Andrew Jose wanting to simplify the hair industry. He felt hair styles and the products required to maintain them had become way too complicated for real people and even hairstylists. So in turn Jose created products with the base ingredient of Sea Moss that would each serve a purpose and deliver on it’s claims.

Instead of a styling product that just enables hair to be sculpted Jlife makes products that also keep hair looking healthy and shiny. Key ingredients include: Red Sea Weed (to provide moisture and conditioning), red algae (add volume), hydrolyzed wheat protein (increase shine, durability and moisture), sugar cane juice (soften hair & reduce static), vitamin e extracts for strength and pro vitamin b-5 for light conditioning.

I was sent a styling product: Perfect Wave- a defrizzing curl definition styler. It’s recommended use is to apply to hair before round brushing which I did. Was I impressed? No. But I did discover that this product has another use. First let me tell you about my hair. It’s shoulder-length, chemically-relaxed and I do love my flat iron. I decided to use it on my hair dry before I used my flat iron to do a flip. I applied about a dime-sized amount to my hair especially the ends. Perfect Wave is the combination of a gel and a shine serum. Not greasy but light and it has great slip and didn’t leave any residue or film on my hair. The fragrance of the product reminds me of a lovely unisex fragrance; something women wouldn’t mind their hair smelling like and men wouldn’t be embarrased having their hair smell like.

I was amazed at how my flip lasted throughout the day. And this was a rainy and misty day where my hair got drizzled on several times without it frizzing up or even falling and it even maintained a nice sheen. I thought ok now let me try this without using this product and see what my hair will do? And it was quite a stark contrast. Without using Jlife’s Perfect Wave my hair fell and even frizzed a little bit. So if it’s a misty, drizzly or humid day and you want to get your hair to behave and not fall prey to the moisture; ask your stylist about Jlife’s Perfect Wave.

I still have yet to use this product for creating curls so look for another review coming soon letting you know how it performed for a wet set.
