Beauty Review: LolaVie

I like to revisit recommendations we’ve made and give little updates.

When I learned that  LolaVie, the hair care company Jennifer Aniston launched in 2021, is now available at Ulta, I thought now would be the perfect time to reshare our review.

Few celebrity brands get me excited. I like a lot of goop products, and my girls introduced me to Selena Gomez’s make-up brand, Rare Beauty.

But by and large, I think most of them are nothing more than a paid endorsement, and they don’t motivate me to purchase.

However, this is Jennifer Aniston, goddess of good hair and former co-owner and spokesperson for Living Proof, one of the best hair care lines I’ve ever used. 

Before I dive in, please note this is not a sponsored post. 

I purchased both products I’m reviewing and continue to do so over a year later.

Beauty Review: LolaVie

LolaVie started with two products: The Glossing Detangler and The Perfecting Leave-in Conditioner

You can now get The Prefecting Leave-in Conditioner, 5 oz. for $29.

And The Glossing Detangler in either 5 oz for $26 or 12 oz for $49.

They now offer shampoo and conditioner, but the leave-in conditioner and the detangler are the two “hero” products.


Let’s start with the packaging, which is identical for both products.

If you order from the LolaVie site your products will be wrapped tightly in a light piece of paper in a shipper box designed to hold them together perfectly.

This is important for a few reasons.

First of all, we’ve all ordered a pack of Post-It Notes from Amazon and had it arrive in a box the size of a refrigerator. 

While that is incredibly wasteful, people don’t realize, especially with beauty and self-care products, that so much of what we spend as the consumer goes into packaging, whether it’s the pretty bottle we see on a shelf or the actual shipping box.

This level of attention to detail the team at LolaVie used in thoughtfully and efficiently packaging and shipping their product is a good sign that the consumer’s dollars are being respected and going into the R&D of the product and not the unnecessary bells and whistles that end up getting thrown away. This is refreshing to see from a hair care brand.

Thankfully, gone are the days that we need some elaborate box to make us think the product is high-end. 

Today, it’s about results. 

As I mentioned, I originally ordered the 5 oz bottles with a clean and chic design, and you can feel that each one is filled with product, another good sign.

Both products are vegan, cruelty-free, color-safe, and suitable for all hair types.

In addition, they are formulated without silicones, sulfates (SLS/SLES), parabens, gluten, and phthalates.

Both products also work as a heat protector.

The Glossing Detangler


The Glossing Detangler



The Glossing Detangler is one of the BEST hair products I’ve ever bought. I bought in 2021 and I’ve been using it every since.

LolaVie Glossing Detangler is a super lightweight spray-on product that does more than just eliminate tangles. Every spray of this detangler has left my hair looking and feeling unbelievably healthy and radiant.

It contains lemon extract to give your hair an impossible shine, a “superfruit complex” and vegetable ceramides to make your hair silky smoothe, and chia seeds to protect against damage.

In addition to managing my poker straight, dry, damaged, and processed hair, I have three girls with very different hair types.

My oldest’s hair is thick and wavy, my middle’s is also thick but with more curl, and you’ve all seen my little one’s head full of perfect ringlets.

I’ve spent a good portion of the last 16 years dealing with tangles and tears and now, I use this on everyone. 

It is the best detangler I have ever used.

Compared to It’s a 10!

Even better than It’s a 10! 

And let’s talk about It’s a 10! for a moment because so many people love it.

We used it for years and it was fine, but I was never blown away.

LolaVie is better.

Also a  4 oz bottle of It’s a 10! is $21 at Ulta,

A 5 oz bottle of LolaVie  is $26 and you to need less product to get results. 

And now you can get a 12 oz bottle for $49.

I use the detangler every time I wash my hair which is almost daily. It’s light, not sticky, sprays easily and leaves your hair with a lovely shine. 

You can use one or both products, but if you use them together, use the detangler first. 

The Perfecting Leave-in Conditioner


The Perfecting Leave-In Conditioner



As I mentioned, my hair is heavily processed, and I have no intention of stopping that anytime soon.

I am naturally dark, so getting my hair blond-ish takes a lot of work and causes a lot of damage.

I also use a ton of heat when I style, so I need something to hydrate and soothe my hair, so the ends don’t look fried.

Ladies, this stuff is incredible.

You can play around with how frequently you use this.

So far, I’ve done two things.

On the rare occasion I’m home and don’t need to look pulled together, I’ll wash my hair (I still use the Alterna Caviar Shampoo), use the detangler on wet hair with my wet brush, and then when my hair is towel dried, I’ll work in the leave-in conditioner almost like hair mask.

It is wonderfully light and doesn’t weigh your hair down. So I can pull it in a bun and let it air dry.

The other way I use it is as a pre-styler, so if I know I’m hitting my hair with my hairdryer (still the T3) and my curling iron (also the T3), I’ll skip a traditional conditioner and use this. Thanks to ingredients like bamboo essence, this leave-in conditioner really does help your hairstyle stay in place.

Because somehow, it works to condition, repair, hydrate, AND hold your style. 

Final Word

Both products are a 10/10. 

And having them available at Ulta is a major plus since they have a lot of locations, an easy to manager website, and, if you’re like me, you might have a couple gift cards burning a whole in your pocket.

They now also offer travel sizes that are ideal if you are getting on a plane anytime soon or just want to try it out.

I’ve been using Lolavie about 6 months n I love all the products. I have fine hair n even the oil doesn’t make my hair greasy. My hair looks n feels good since using the products!

I purchased the shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, detangler and oil. I am not a fan. I loathe the smell (kinda like beeswax) and it leave my hair limp and greasy looking. I have used the products approximately 6 times and each time I lesson the amount thinking perhaps I used too much and that would account for the appearance. Didn't matter. My much cheaper hair products did a much better job. I wasted my money and will not purchase again.

I never recommended the shampoo, conditioner or the oil. It sounds like your hair doesn't need the extra conditioning.

I agree -- these products are terrific! I have short hair so only use the leave-in conditioner and even my hairdresser noticed the difference in the health of my hair after a month of using it. And my first bottle lasted me over a year! (I only need one pump per wet head. I checked my purchase and I bought it 1/12/22 and literally just finished that first bottle this morning -- so that is nearly 17 months!) Cheers to a great project -- and thank you Megan for all your good reviews. I really value your advice.

I used to have thin straight shiny hair, now I still have thin hair but it’s fluffy/frizzy and only shiny for about the first 2 inches of new growth. Thank you menopause. Any suggestions on how to get my shine back? I wear it just past my shoulders and all one length.

Megan, I'd love to know which T3 you use for drying. Can you add a link? Thank you so much for what you do!

Sure! I have had mine for years so I don't think they sell that model anymore but this is the most similar in style and price. I LOVE it. Also, if you're not in a rush for one SOMETIMES Nordstrom includes them in their Anniversary sale in the summer. I always share them when they do :)

I have thick wavy hair so I’m excited to give it a try!! Thank you for this. I’m always looking for good hair products especially its. Vegan and cruelty free!!!

As a curly, its hard to find products that work for my hair. I am curious to know if you are following and curly methods for your girls--I VERY loosely follow because there is definitely no one size fits all. I really didn't know I had curls until about 3 years ago, always just thought I had severe frizz (I'm 51). You've made it sound pretty enticing. Thanks for the review.

I just ordered both! Too bad ya' don't get some credit for this, but funny thing I trust you completely (sometimes need to remember that you do not actually KNOW me! but I am assuming that's the vibe you are going for!). Thank you for all the hard work you do! Have a fantastic day!

Thank you for this review. What is the scent like of these products? Thank you.
