J.F Lazartigue : Anti-Aging Hair Care

J.F Lazartigue : Anti-Aging Hair Care review by iliketotalkblogiliketotalkalot iliketotalkblog review

J.F Lazartigue is one of those brands that continue to circle back into my life over the years and for good reason – their product has never failed to impress. I’ve tried many of their products from their orchid shine shampoo, to their amazing soy milk strengthening line, their luxe Essential duo, and even their hair color and hair loss products! I always end up going back to their soy milk line which literally transforms my long, fine hair but recently I was invited to sample their newest product line, The Ultra-Regenerating Anti-Aging line.

J.F Lazartigue is one of the first hair care lines that utilizes skincare ingredients in each of their products. Each product was carefully formulated to repair, protect and improve the look and feel of your hair with each wash. Their latest anti-aging line harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid, collagen and keratin to nourish mature hair while fighting the signs of oxidation.

The Ultra-Regenerating Anti-Aging line consists of three products, a hair mask, a washing cream and conditioner — all recommended to be used together for it’s complimentary benefits.

With most any other brand, I would use a hair mask as the last step in the shower, but with J.F Lazartigue there is a different approach. The Ultra-Regenerating Mask is to be use first and allowed to sit on the hair and scalp for a good 30 minutes. I usually apply the mask and then take my time laying out all my after shower products and what I plan to wear after during this time. This mask works to strengthen hair and by plumping and filling it in any weak areas with hyaluronic acid, keratin and collagen.

I think follow with Ultra Regenerating Washing Creme and finish with the Ultra Regenerating Conditioner. Each step of this system works to build on the previous by strengthening the hair from the inside out. I think the mask does a phenomenal job on it’s own, but like to use the full treatment for best results. There’s no other way to put it — my hair feels awesome after using all three products. It feels thick, smooth, and healthy.

The J.F Lazartigue Ultra Regenerating line is an investment in your hair. Much like how you would invest in good skincare, good hair care products make a difference in the look and feel of your hair. Think about what your hair goes through on a daily basis – heat styling? Environmental pollution? Breakage from pony holders? Why not treat your hair to a little TLC?

You can find J.F Lazartigue products online or at boutique beauty supply locations. To find out more about the brand, you can visit their website or follow them on Facebook or Instagram.

Treat Postpartum Hair Loss with J.F. Lazartigue Stymulactine line

j.f lazartigue for hair loss iliketotalkblogiliketotalkalot iliketotalkblog reviewDid you know that August is Hair Loss Awareness Month? You’d be surprised to hear how often hair loss happens with women and not only men. And while it doesn’t directly affect our physical health, it can definitely take a toll on our emotional health. While there are a variety of reasons why women lose their hair, the one I want to talk about is postpartum hair loss, and how J.F Lazartigue’s Stymulactine line can help.

Postpartum hair loss happens when there are changes in your hormone levels, specifically Estrogen. During pregnancy, Estrogen levels are high, but once we have our little ones, they tend to drop off and that’s when we start seeing our hair at the bottom of the shower. Hair loss can go on until my baby reaches one years old, and by that time it should be back to it’s normal routine.

My daughter just turned six months and with that, I’ve noticed over the past three months that my hair was coming out at a noticeable rate. I had be warned that postpartum hair loss was a thing, but didn’t really worry about it until I started seeing my hairbrush and comb collecting enough to make someone else a full head of hair (or at least it felt like it). I already have very fine hair, and to be losing so much made me feel like my pony tails were getting tinier and tinier. Was I going to end up with a bald spot or that crazy baby hair that sticks up no matter what you do to it? All things I’ve seen in my mommy groups and was starting to imagine happen to myself.

It was right around month five that I was contacted by J.F Lazartigue to try their anti-hair loss line and see if it could help me. The J.F Lazartigue Stymulactine line consists of a few products that slows hair loss by fortifying the hair at the root and encouraging new regrowth of stronger hair. There is a shampoo, a spray, the scalp revitalizer, and revitalizing hair nutrients (vitamins).

J.F. Lazartigue Stymulactine 21 Shampoo uses plant glycoproteins to improve tissue respiration while homotaurine stimulates regrowth–just what new mamas need in this first year. It’s formula also includes anti-inflammatories and antioxidants to promote healthy, lush hair. The shampoo has a light fragrance and rinses well.

Their Intensive Scalp Revitalizer fortifies and strengthens the hair at the root, helping anchor when you have left, while improving your chances of healthy, strong regrowth . Plant placenta nourishes the scalp with much needed amino acids and vitamins vital to sustaining heathy hair growth. I basically part my hair in several places and squeeze the ampules into the part and rub gently into the scalp and hair. It leaves my scalp a little “wet” so a ponytail is what I usually resort to during the day if I use it in the morning every couple of days.

Lastly, the Revitalizing Hair Nutrients are supplements that help fill out any dietary deficiencies which we all know can happen when caring for a baby. Can we say skipped dinners and missed breakfasts? Depending on your level of hair loss, they recommend anywhere from 3-6 pills per day. I was advised to start with six pills a day, then 4, then 2 over a three month period of time.j.f lazartigue for hair loss iliketotalkblogJ.F. Lazartigue recommends using the products for three months to see the best results.  I’ve only just started using the products, but wanted to share this amazing line with my readers in case there are any mamas out there dealing with postpartum hair loss like myself. I’ve always been a fan of J.F Lazartigue products like their soy milk line and orchid shine products, but this is new for me. I plan to update you guys on my Instagram so I can share my results so be sure you’re following me over there!

iliketotalkalot iliketotalkblog reviewIt has been a few months since I brought you up to date on J.F. Lazartigue Products and my next one helps to enhance the color of your hair.  JFL Colour Reflecting Conditioners can be used to enhance shine, and slightly change the tone of your hair.  There is no ammonia or peroxide to permanently change your hair color, but simply impart shine and deposits color for increased depth.

The process is real easy, its just like doing a deep conditioning of your hair right after the shower and can be applied for 5-30 minutes at a time.  A single tube lasted me at least 8-10 applications which is sufficient for even long hair like mine, and even gave me more applications than the drugstore brands that are supposed to do the same. The cream is thick which makes it easy to use and stays in place instead of running into your eyes and worrying about a stained forehead.

I chose Light Golden Chestnut for my brown hair.  I have natural highlights brought out by the california sun, but I do like to make my hair super shiny and darker colors have looked better on me in the past 10 years (used to be a bleach blonde!).

I typically used this about once every four-five days right at the end of my shower when it was wet but excess water was squeezed out. I did stick with shorter application time, usually around 5-10 minutes and still found that it slightly darkened my brunette hair – even to the point my fiance noticed it!

Be careful when using the conditioner because it will stain hands unless your scrub them clean right after. I would use some shampoo in my shower pouf and scrub my palms right after using. I would apply all over my hair  with my hands, comb it through, and then continue on with my shaving or whatever else with the water off giving it a good amount of time to do its thing. I would also twist up and pin it with a clip so my back wouldn’t stain also.

I love the freedom of a color enhancing conditioner because it’s temporary so there is no scary results to worry about, and it DOES leave your hair really really shiny. I find that the price is good for the amount of applications I got out of it compared to other brands that required me to use MORE and get less noticeable results.

J.F Lazartigue has a wide variety of colors to choose from for blondes, brunettes, red, silver, and black hair.  This color chart below (courtesy of Pretty Me Up!) shows you what color you should be looking for when trying it out.  Again, don’t try to go from blonde to brown with this, it is meant to enhance the color of your current hair, not drastically change it- nor can it take brunette hair to blonde.

If you’re looking for a quick color boost I highly suggest you check out the J.F.Lazartigue Colour Reflecting Conditioner!

Ammonia-Free • Peroxide-Free • Paraben-Free • Utilizes Vegetable Proteins to strengthen hair and improve shine.
