jlifeI 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.

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.
