Xtreme Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner
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.
