Jlife Haircare Xtreme Colour Protector By Simply Stacie


 I have been colouring my hair for the past five years and like to get a different look every few months or so. I like how it gives my hair some life, but I know how hard it can be on my thin, fine locks. I was recently given the opportunity to review Xtreme Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner by JLife and was curious to see what effect it would have on my hair.

JLife products were developed by the internationally renowned stylist Andrew Jose. Each product is uniquely formulated with Sea Moss which helps the hair retain moisture naturally while being low in additives and good for the environment and your hair.

I found it interesting to learn that 90% of colour loss comes from the moisture used in washing your hair which in turn swells the cuticle and allows non-bonded colour molecules to flow down the drain. I always wondered why my colour looks so vibrant on the day of my dye job and yet in matter of a week or so, it would be dull and fading away. Hmmm…..

Even with my professional shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for dyed hair, I still had this problem and now I know why! JLife says that this is an issue with most professional shampoos and conditioners out there that are no longer abrasive to the hair structure so you can say bye bye colour.


The product I got to try out was Xtreme Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner. As with all of JLife products that are designed as color protection with a natural pH that helps shut the cuticle and trap the color in your hair, this particular shampoo and conditioner have an added level of conditioning to give a pearlescent shine to your hair. It is meant to gently cleanse your hair while maintaining your colour and it even has sunscreen in it to protect your hair from UV damage. It contains both Sea Moss and Pro Vitamin B5 to nourish and add moisture.

I have been using this product the last two weeks and I am thoroughly impressed with its effect on my hair. My colour looks more vibrant and it seems to have taken on a new life. I love how soft it makes your hair feel too. I have baby fine hair which often just looks so lifeless and dull and I’m pleased to say my hair hasn’t looked this good in years. My sister even commented on my hair and said it looked really nice and asked what had I done to it.

The smell of the shampoo and conditioner is pleasant enough and not overpowering. I like how it easily lathers and that you don’t need to use much of either. The price is typical of what you would pay in a hair salon with the shampoo at $18 and the conditioner at $22.

I would continue to use this product and I’m curious to try some of the other products they have to offer. To purchase any of JLife products, please visit their website.

Hair Color Trends: Ribbons of Color for Spring 2009


JLife Haircare Lifestylist trainer Jeremy Austin suggests that adding several shades of color is the hot new trend this spring.  The variations of shades, some to highlight and some to deepen the tones will give the hair a natural look, if natural tones are used and for a flirty look if brighter colors are added. Many elements factor in when coloring hair: Skin tone, eye color, natural hair color all play a big role in choosing hair color shades will look great on a client. First and most important when choosing the perfect hair color is to determine whether your clients fall into the WARM or COOL category. Look at the natural skin tone to pick the right hair colors that will compliment the natural tones.

People with cool skin tones should avoid warm tones such as gold, yellow, red and bronze tones, cool ash browns, and cool blondes in shades ranging from mink to platinum and icy white. Highlights should be wheat, honey, taupe or ash shades. Stick to neutral, ash bases when choosing a hair color. For more exotic looks: Choose blacks, reds, burgundies, orchids, and purples.

People with warm tones should avoid blue, violet and ash shades in hair color.  Brunettes should try, warm browns, chestnuts, rich golden browns and auburn, warm gold and red highlights, and golden blond shades look best on you. Any color that has red-orange or gold base will look great on you. Highlighting is a great way to add warm tones to your hair. Highlight with golden blondes, golden brown shades. For fun flirty looks, try adding bights such as copper streaks, and cinnamon.

JLife Haircare Big One Shampoo Gets A Big Review



I’ve discovered several new hair and body products on the market that do not lather. That’s a bit of a problem for me because I like lather. When I wash my hair I like my head to be covered in lather. So much so that when I’m in the shower and I rinse my hair, my toes are covered in bubbles.


J-Life’s, The Big One Thickening Shampoo is everything I want in a shampoo. My NY liked it, too! That’s him in the shower, not me!!100_1477-1


Throughout the full JLife range of haircare products the clean, fresh European fragrance provides consistent appeal to users from all walks of life. The essence of JLife is a focus on natural ingredients derived from the sea and nature designed to create shiny, healthier hair. Originally designed for professionals, JLife products are now available for everyone.

Ingredients Include:


Red Sea Weed to provide ultimate moisture.

Red Algae to add volume and thicken the hair shaft.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein to increase shine.

Sugar Cane Juice to soften hair and reduce static.

 Vitamin E Extracts to strengthen hair and add shine and condition.

 Pro Vitamin B5 to add moisture and light condition.


We try to live as organic as possible at our house so clean and pure ingredients from nature are important. I love that The Big One Thickening Shampoo is clear and colorless. It’s like washing my hair in a fresh mountain stream. I like that.

Pink Family Reviews JLife Swell Mousse



I love to try out new things on my hair. That’s why I was super excited to try out Jlife Haircare products.

Jlife Haircare was created by London salon owner Andrew Jose. He wanted to enhance the education provided to stylists in the United States. He is dedicated to maximizing stylist’s talents and promoting the highest quality of hair care to his clients.

The key ingredients for Jlife Haircare products are:
· Red Sea Weed: ultimate moisture
· Red Sea Algae: add volume and thickens the hair shaft
· Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: increase shine, durability, and adds moisture
· Sugar Cane Juice: softens hair and reduces static

The key features of Jlife Haircare products are:
· Made by a hairdresser for hairdressers
· Simple, no crossover products
· Clean, fresh fragrance that does not linger; the client smells their perfume/cologne, not the hairspray

Jlife Haircare products can be found in fine salons around the world and at this website.

I was sent a bottle of the Jlife Swell Mousse to try.



It’s goal is to create volume and prevent flyaways and is antistatic.

Let me tell you, I have thick, naturally curly hair, so I am always anxious to see how something new will work on it. First, I was impressed by how light the mousse was. It seemed very airy. As a result, I thought I needed a lot for my longer, thick hair, but that was definitely not the case. I was pleasantly surprised at how well just a little bit covered all my hair.

The second test would be when I blow-dried my hair. Having naturally curly hair, it tends to get frizzy when I blowdry it if I don’t have the right product. The Jlife Swell Mousse was great at controlling frizz and keeping my curls smooth.

Overall, I have to say I like this mousse. It is light so that I don’t feel like I am putting a bunch of goop in my hair yet it controls the frizz. I would definitely recommend this product.
