Hair Care Review: J.F. Lazartigue



Volumizing Styling Gel

Buy it HERE for $32


This volumizing gel adds volume to the roots and hair as well as amazing shine to the hair leaving it feeling natural and light weight. May be used wet or dry to get that perfect sculptured or light weight look.


Use daily on wet or dry hair, best if used before Hair volume tonic.



This product really works!
I have fine, straight, flat hair in desperate need of some volume.
I put a dime-size amount on my damp hair and work it in.
After I blow-dry my hair, it literally is more big, volumized- but better yet it has TEXTURE.
Making my hair FEEL full and thick. 


The consistency is weird- it's in between a gel and a serum (kind of/sort of).
The only thing I didn't like was applying it onto my DRY hair (it says you can) but it made my hair a little stiff. Smells great, just like everything from j.f. lazartigue




Soy Milk Strengthening Serum

Buy it HERE for $42


This super shiny and leave-in serum is a perfect finisher after styling. The Soy Milk will nourish dry and splits ends of very fine hair. It will leave your hair soft, bouncy and shiny all day long without weighing it down!


Use as often as you wish after blow drying on the end of dry and damaged hair.


How funny, I just realized you are supposed to use this on the ends on DRY hair!
I've been using it as a strengthening serum on my WET hair.
Either way, it makes my hair feel so soft.
It's MADE for fine hair- because most serums get greasy on fine/thin hair (this definitely doesn't).
Can't wait to try it the correct way, on dry hair :)








Color Reflecting Hair Conditioner

Buy your shade HERE for $25

"Make-up for hair"- how cute is that!
I didn't notice a huge difference after using this.
However, it did make my hair more shiny.
I think this is great to use in between the times you are scheduled for your next coloring at the salon.
Remember, it DOES NOT lighten hair at all.

Light Golden Blond CRC
It both colors and conditions your hair. It washed out without any trace for 3 to 6 shampoos. NO AMMONIA - NO PEROXIDE.
The vegetable protein of this make up for hair, restores incredible shine and provides softness to dull hair.



Usage : After shampoo, towel dry your hair. Aplly the product all over your hair, using the gloves provided. Comb through to make sure that the preoduct is spread uniformly. Leave on for 5 to 30 minutes according to the level of intensity tou wish to reach. Rinse thoroughly.
Tips : for less intensity, mix Colour Reflecting Hair conditioner with Vita-cream with milk proteins.
Does not lighten the hair.




Here's a guide to show you which is best for your own hair color (click to enlarge).



Essential Orange Oil Shampoo
100% Botanical

Buy it HERE for $45


This gentle botanical Shampoo is recommended to natural or little sensitized hair. It moisturizes and protect the hair.
From a 100% botanical base, this shampoo's cleansing agents are extracted from Oat, Apple and Babassu Walnut (from a Carribean and Brazilian tree).

This shampoo is Paraben Free & Chemical Preservatives Free.



Instructions for use: Apply a small amount of shampoo evenly towards damp hair. Gently massage it. Rinse and proceed to the 2nt application. Rinse thoroughly.


Smells amazing! It does leave a slight film that makes your hair shiny.
It feels GOOD, so it's not a bad texture to the hair.
But if you like squeaky-clean hair, then you might want to pass on this.
If you have really dry hair in need of a hydration then try this out! 


I really appreciate the beauty companies that are making an effort to include preservative free/natural/botanical products to their range.
It's hair and makeup "going green." 




Essential Orange Oil Leave-in Conditioner
100% Botanical

Buy it HERE for $48


This leave-in conditioner is recommended for natural or little sensitized hair. It makes the hair easier to detangle and moisturizes the hair shaft

I love leave-in hair conditioners that are highly quality, because they WORK.
This is awesome! 
Love it for summer- you can quickly wash your hair and spray some of this in.
Makes combing the hair much easier.




The following products were sent to me by the company.
I am always 100% honest in my reviews.
