I rarely leave reviews but these products have left me so impressed upon my first use. Given the nature of my hair - 29 yrs old - dense, fine strands, chemically treated w blonde highlights, naturally straight, shoulder length, tangles very easily - I have been searching for the perfect hair products [shampoo, conditioner, detangler, etc.]. I've tried so many mid/high-end brands [Oribe, Virtue, R+Co, Aveda, Isles Formula, Prose, Amika, Briogeo, Moroccan Oil, Davines, etc.] and did not feel the immediate impression I had with Lolavie shampoo, conditioner, and detangler. Each product is beyond worth it - individually and collectively. Shampoo suds well and leaves hair feeling clean but soft [not clean and stripped], conditioner is creamy and leaves hair feeling immediately nourished and soft, esp. if you leave it on while completing the remaining of your shower routine, [does not feel or leave a coating of residue that does not condition or detangle]. While I could probably have brushed through my hair as is - the detangler was amazing and I was immediately able to brush through my hair with a Wet Brush and subsequently a comb [which I could never ever do before]. I've broken brushes before with my tangled hair. I believe I found my holy grail products and I am so so thankful - leave it to Jen! Need jumbo sizes as well as fragrances because the scents of these products are amazing and not overpowering. #lolalove
I want to start this review by stating that I am a huge JA fan, but also have been a fan of Lolavie since its launch. I use the leave in, glossing detangler, and hair oil regularly and have had no issues with them. I also do not believe I've had any issues as the result of using the conditioner. I am constantly recommending Lolavie to friends and family. However, this review is very specific to the shampoo. I've been using the shampoo for approximately 3 months. After about a month of use, I noticed my scalp had large dry patches, so dry and large I couldn't run my fingers through my hair without the patch stopping my fingers. Then, the more frightening part, the breakage from the root started happening. I have thick curly hair, and am used to losing hair in the shower, which is very normal. But something different was happening here. It was breaking off straight from the root, which never happened. And then, I started noticing for the first time in my life, I was losing hair and thinning out near my scalp. Never in my life. My hair is so thick naturally I usually have to find ways to thin out my hair. But this was never what I expected, and I've never wanted it to thin from the root and have patches. When I saw this issue occurring, I tested whether it was the shampoo or not. I switched back to my Living Proof No Frizz to see if I lost the same amount of hair from the root. I did not. Then I went back to try Lolavie shampoo, and it happened again. I ran this test back and forth one more time. Something in the shampoo ingredients is not working for the scalp, and I don't believe I'm the first person to experience this based on other reviews. I wanted to give time before writing this to confirm it wasn't a fluke issue, but unfortunately, I feel a duty to let others know because I'm very scared for the hair loss on my scalp, and am hoping it is only temporary. I also feel a duty to the Lolavie team. Yalls other products have been so great and helped me along on my hair journey, but this is a big speed bump for me that I hope the team can look into in the near future.

This shampoo smells great (not too strong) and lathers extremely well.

Been using the shampoo for almost a year now. Won't put anything else in my hair!
Sherri from Midland mi
Very disappointing 30.00 a bottle and my hair looks dirty the next day
Becky from Oklahoma City
I actually loved the smell of this new line, it lathered nicely, it felt like it cleaned my hair and scalp amazing and my hair itself was so nice and soft and smooth after using it.
However, the three times I used it my hair fell out in alarming amounts. I didn't even connect the two until about a month later when I was reading reviews from other women saying the same thing.
I've always had extremely thick hair (where evenhairdressers etc would make comments about it being so thick) but now it is so so thin.

I have fine hair and this product is by far the worst shampoo and conditioner I have ever tried. As soon as I blow dry my hair, it looks flat, oily and like i need to immediately wash it again. Do not buy. Horrible product.
Juli from Los Angeles
Noticed i have less hair loss. Hydrating, lovecthe scent.
Vanna from Sioux city, iowa
Got for my husband he used it twice and we thought he had an allergic reaction because it did terrible things to his scalp. but Everyone that i have talked to says their scalp got really itchy after using it. he did say his hair felt nice though.he does not usually have a sensitive scalp.
Kerry from Missouri
It is a nice shampoo. It did not wow me. For that price and only 8 ounces, I was wanting a wow factor. Living Proof is a better product. I wanted to love it, and I still adore Jennifer, just not this product.

I love how my hair feels after using this and it smells great.
Zoobalily from Sacramento
I noticed my hair was really dry. The only new thing I did was start using this product. I stopped using it and my hair is almost back to normal. It smells great but isn't worth it.
Jamie from Maryland
I first purchased the travel kit and loved it. After the first wash, I noticed a difference. My hair air dried perfectly and felt clean and healthy. When I finished the travel size I purchased a full size bottle. After a week of using it I realized how much hair loss was happening. It was enough to compare to my post-partum hair loss five years ago which was tremendous. It took a while to realize it was this product causing the hair loss. I should have known after the first use when my wavy hair was near straight without hot tools. I ended up returning this product. I have not used this product in two months but my hair is still thinning. Not as bad as when I was using the product, but still concerning.

I have straight fine oily hair. This shampoo leaves my hair clean, shiny and full. The key is to use a small amoint of the leave in conditioner on the ends. Love it!!!!!
SouthernSister from Lexington, NC
I really enjoy this product. I alternate this and Moroccan Oil Purple shampoo. Sometimes I mix them together. But I have never had any issues. I do love the citrusy smell! I usually pair whatever shampoo I'm using with the Kerastase 8 hr Magic Hair Night Serum. This combination seems to work really good, leaving my hair very clean, but also silky smooth.
LolaVie from Covington, Kentucky
I finally found a shampoo and conditioner that works for my hair. I have been using this product a little over a month now and I must say that I love how nurished my hair feels. I also use the leave in and oil. My hair feels so soft, its healthy, and I also love that theres no harsh ingredients in this.
Angie from Lumberton, Texas
I absolutely love this shampoo. Doesn't leave a greasy residue. My hair feels clean for days.
Danie from Nashville, TN
I was so excited for this line! I bought the travel size set (thank goodness!). I love the scent! I've used it 3 times, and each time I feel like I need to wash my hair agin. The last time I used even less shampoo and lathered it in my hands before putting it in my hair. It leaves my roots so greasy, gross and thick (I can't run my fingers through my hair without feeling residue, and I rinse…I rinse even more to get the residue off, but it didn't work.)
The glossing detangler ans leave in conditioner are AMAZING!!
Cathy from Columbia, SC
Leaves my hair very clean and shiny
Paige from Macon, Georgia
I have shoulder length, highlighted, somewhat oily hair. After shampooing/conditioning, my hair felt like straw! It was a rough brush-out. Once dried, it felt better, but thats not something I want to do with each wash. Smell was great! Sorry :(
Erin from Utah
I love the smell of this and love the glossing detangler. Directions say to scrub vigorously but I see so much more hair loss in the tub when I use this.
Megan from Hilliard ohio
This by far is one of the best products I have ever used
JustMe from Northwest Indiana
I would not recommend and definitely would not purchase again.
Stacy from Maryland
Hair is noticeably softer and deeply clean
Megan from Houston TX
Don't recommend for thin, dry hair. Immediately left hair dry and poofy
Laurie from Maryland
This shampoo/conditioner is so greasy. My hair actually looks worse after I wash it than before. It leaves a greasy film on my hair even after rinsing thoroughly. Had to wash my hair after I styled it because it looks dirty. Overpriced and awful.
kay from ohio
Made my hair fall so badly. As much as I wanted to like it I had to stop using it due to the amount of hair I have lost.
