About Hair La Vie

The Hair La Vie product line is designed to naturally repair, protect, hydrate, and grow your hair from the inside out. In other words, to provide “longer, faster, fuller hair growth.”

Within the Hair La Vie Line, there are four main products that work synergistically:

  1. Hair La Vie Hair Growth Vitamins, which feature a revitalizing blend that promotes hair growth and fullness.
  2. Revitalize & Restore shampoo and conditioner that will “leave your hair feeling cleaners, softer and healthier.”
  3. Revive Deep Hydration Mask, which as the name implies, will provide hydration while also strengthening your hair.
  4. Moroccan Repair Serum protects, softens, and de-frizzes hair.

On top of this, Hair La Vie’s products contain no fish products, are manufactured in a GMP facility, and are cruelty and toxin free.

Sounds great, but should you invest in Hair La Vie’s product line? What kinds of results can you realistically expect? Are there better uses for your money? We’ll answer all these questions by first taking a closer look at the hair growth process.

How Does Hair Grow? Is It Possible To Speed Up the Process?

As we detailed in our Hair Supplements Buyers Guide, pretty much every hair on your body goes through three phases:

  • Anagen – This is basically where your hair grows, usually at a rate of about ½ an inch per month, which can last anywhere between 1-6 years. Most of the hairs on your head (roughly 90%) are currently in the anagen phase.
  • Catagen – About 3% of your hairs are in this phase, which acts as a transition between anagen and the one we’ll discuss next.
  • Telogen – Finally, the telogen phase is where about 6%-8% of your hairs take a break from growing and temporarily rest. In most cases, this lasts about 100 days.

Now remember, not all of your hairs go through the same cycle at the same time, which means they’ll respond to various treatments differently. But as a whole, how will they respond to Hair La Vie’s ingredients? Let’s see.

​More About the Hair La Vie Product Line

Revitalizing Growth Vitamins

This is an all-natural vitamin (otherwise known as a nutritional supplement) that features a blend of 20 all-natural ingredients to boost hair growth “from the inside out”:

  • Vitamin A 8,000IU
  • Vitamin B1 10mg
  • Vitamin B2 10mg
  • Vitamin B3 50mg
  • Vitamin B6 10mg
  • Folic Acid 250mcg
  • Biotin 2,500mcg
  • Pantothenic Acid 40mg
  • Hair La Vie Proprietary Blend 1,275mg: MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Hydrolyzed Collagen, Organic Kelp Extract, Saw Palmetto Berry Extract, Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense), Bamboo Stem & Leaf Extract (70% Silica), Flax Seed Oil Extract, Borage Oil Extract

Basically, the process works over 3 steps: First, Hair La Vie will repair your scalp by removing dry skin, reducing irritation, and hydrating your skin. Then, the ingredients will nourish your hair follicles and further repair inflammation. Finally, your hair will be “infused with antioxidants and natural silica” in order to strengthen and improve its health. Really?

In a nutshell, many of the ingredients above are the key to healthy hair, especially if you’re deficient in any of the essential vitamins. And while some of the supplement’s other ingredients might help improve shine, there isn’t enough clinical evidence showing that any of them will help your hair grow faster.

Revitalize & Restore

This actually involves two products: A shampoo and conditioner combo that contains 21 natural oils, extracts, vitamins, proteins, and amino acids to help improve your hair’s health and feel, clean the scalp, hydrate and repair damage, and control frizz. The company even claims it’ll “stop hair loss” (we’ll talk about this again in a moment), and it’s made without parabens or harsh sulfates.

Overall, most of these ingredients are conditioning agents. In other words, while they probably won’t change the chemical structure of your hair (making it grow faster), they might help it feel softer and increase its shine.

Moroccan Repair Serum

Made without parabens, phthalates, dyes, or alcohol, Hair La Vie’s Moroccan Repair Serum contains seven essential oils and vitamins that provide long-term protection and frizz control.

This way, it can naturally hydrate and moisturize your hair, protect it, and provide “instant shine.”

We’ve talked about Moroccan argan oil in several hair supplements reviews before, such as Silk of Morocco and Pura D'or Argan Oil. And while feedback seems to be mixed (here on HighYa as well as elsewhere online), it—along with Repair Serum’s other ingredients—won’t do much more than condition your hair and add shine.

Revive Mask

Think masks are only for your face? Will Hair La Vie’s Revive Mask, you’ll be putting 11 essential vitamins and oils on your hair, which will naturally strengthen, hydrate, nourish, and repair it. All without parabens, phthalates, dyes, or alcohol.

Again (we’re starting to sound like a broken record here), these ingredients might provide some conditioning benefits (i.e. they might help your hair look better), but they won’t necessarily help it grow any faster.

Granted, we didn’t test Hair La Vie’s products directly, so all of this comes from an outside, research-based perspective. Despite the fact that they probably won’t provide much more than conditioning, are customers pleased with Hair La Vie’s products?

Hair La Vie: Yay Or Nay With Customers?

Between all four of Hair La Vie’s products, their website featured more than 100 customer reviews at the time of our research, with an average rating close to 5 stars. There, common compliments centered around great results and ease of use.

However, these results weren’t mirrored elsewhere online. In fact, other than a handful of independent bloggers who received free samples of Hair La Vie products in exchange for reviews, we didn’t find a single unbiased review. So, in our opinion, we’d recommend taking these with a grain of salt.

From a company perspective, Hair La Vie products are manufactured by La Muse Beauty based out of Los Angeles, CA. They had an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau based on just 3 closed complaints (as of 1/14/16), although no complaint details were available.

Alright, before wrapping everything up, let’s explore Hair La Vie’s pricing. After all, if it’s inexpensive enough, it just might be worth trying!

Whew! We’ve covered a whole lot of ground in this Hair La Vie Review! Let’s go ahead and bring it home.

Should You Spend Your Money On Hair La Vie Products?

Compared to many of the other hair supplements and products we’ve reviewed, we think it’s positive that Hair La Vie chose to include labels and full lists of ingredients for each of their products, as well as a decent FAQ. It’s also positive that their products come with a 90-day refund policy, and you’ll only be out a few dollars in S&H for giving them a try.

With this said, based on what we learned about their ingredients, we really don’t think these products will provide many more benefits than most high-end, chemical-free haircare products you’d find locally (or even ones only found online, such as Wen). And even though they might condition your hair, while making it shinier and softer, they almost certainly won’t make it grow any faster—nor will anything else.

On top of this, we think it’s disconcerting that the company claims their Revitalize & Repair combo will “stop hair loss.” Why? Because hair loss is usually caused by one of two things: Genetics (such as female pattern baldness), and bodily changes (such as hormones, excessive stress, etc.). In any case, we don’t think any of its topical ingredients will address either of these causes.

So if you’re looking for fuller, thicker hair, Hair La Vie’s products might be worth the relatively high price; this is something only you can decide. But if you’re main focus is on boosting growth, you might not feel like you got your money’s worth.

  • Shampoo is horrible, conditioner is OK

    I have somewhat long hair and it takes almost a quarter of the expensive bottle to come close to covering my hair. Most sulfate free shampoos that I have used I can use a quarter size glob in my hand to do the job. My hair, after rinsing the shampoo out was like straw, I couldn't get my fingers through it without causing breakage. The conditioner was okay and once I could get it in my hair, was nice. Smelled good and you could feel the mint oil tingle. It does take a long time to rinse it thoroughly, twice the normal time, but it did make my hair soft and manageable. So keep the conditioner, throw out the shampoo.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Terrible Customer Service

    This review is based on the customer service I received during the return process.

    Return advice: Make sure you send the product back within the ninety-days to receive a refund. You have to contact customer service and wait for them to email you a return authorization code. I would also recommend putting insurance on the package and requesting a signature. They take their time processing returns. Be prepared to wait at least a month for a refund.

    Hair La Vie has absolutely the worst customer service department. Very rude and condescending.

    I contacted customer service to request a return shipping label because two orders were processed without my knowledge or consent. I placed one order for six bottles of the hair vitamins. I initially was going to purchase three bottles and backed out of the order without hitting the final select button to confirm the order because there was an offer at the end of my purchase to upgrade to six bottles for an additional $50.00. Before I confirmed the upgrade I wanted to speak to a friend to see if she wanted to split the order. I decided to order six bottles instead of the original three. I got back online and placed the order. Did not think anything of the order until I reviewed my bank statement and noticed two charges. One for $107.00 and a second charge for $160.00.

    No big deal (so I thought). I contact customer service and request a return label for the unauthorized purchase. Instead of being greeted with a "we see you are a repeat customer" and a "sorry for the inconvenience, we will be happy to mail you a return shipping label," I spoke to Angela who stated "we would rather lose you as a customer and have you return both orders at your expense than send you a return shipping label for the extra order."

    Very disappointing. And the worst part about the situation is when I tried to contact someone else within the company I get Angela over and over.

    I am not sure if this company values their, customers, but Angela is terrible for business and terrible to deal with.

    I took my business to another natural vitamin company whose product is very similar to Hair La Vie and they do not have an Angela there to send condescending emails to customers. And they actually appreciate customer feedback and handle issues with orders promptly and without a nasty attitude.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Hair La Vie

    You mentioned the reviews of this product on the Hair La Vie site were not unbiased. Well, here is my unbiased review. I tried this product yesterday for the first time. I am 68 and I have long coarse, curly silver hair. I have to set it in large rollers, air dry it, and then flat iron it to get it to be manageable. I had been using Wen, ran out of it and used some drug store brand and it started getting really unmanageable. I went back to re-order Wen when I read about Hair La Vie. I was blown away. I used the shampoo, conditioner and Moroccan oil as directed. Never, and I mean never has my hair felt this soft and manageable as well as shiny (without using shine spray). I went to get a massage later that day and my massage therapist said to me, "Oh my gosh your hair is so soft." I've never seen it like that. So there you have it. I am sold. Whether or not it helps my hair grow (as it is thinning) is irrelevant to me. It does great with what I have.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    The vitamins work

    I experienced hair loss due to DHT and I know this for sure because I went to a dermatologist and had a scalp analysis done and that was the verdict. My hair had stopped growing altogether. I performed extensive research and tried several different hair growth vitamins to no avail. I saw Hair La Vie advertised on my Facebook page and noticed that it said it had all natural ingredients and since I was desperate for my hair to grow back I gave it a try. I can sincerely say that I noticed my hair start growing back fuller and healthier after about a month and a half. I went from near baldness to a full head of hair after about 10 months. I have been taking Hair La Vie vitamins and will continue to take them because they are the only vitamins thus far that I have found that actually work for me. I would recommend them to anyone suffering hair loss, even men who experience DHT and baldness.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Money Back Guarantee?

    I tried the shampoo, conditioner and the hair masque. I was very pleased with the hair masque, however, I was very unhappy with how much shampoo I had to use to just to get a good lather going. (The bottles are extremely tiny for the price, BTW.) I decided to return the shampoo and conditioner because I felt they were way too expensive for the amount I was using. I followed Hair La Vie's instructions regarding returns and a refund. I returned the shampoo and conditioner over 6 weeks ago, and as of today, I have not received a refund. I have emailed the company a dozen or more times, with zero response, and still no refund. VERY dissatisfied with this company! Even though I really liked the hair masque, I will not buy from them again. I have been ignored, and I am still wondering if I will ever receive a refund.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Best I have found

    • Jacksonville, FL ,
    • Sep 28, 2016

    I have used many products to get my hair to grow back, too many to name. Hair La Vie is the only one that is actually doing the job. I have been using the vitamins, restore, and revive and I can actually see the difference. Thanks for a wonderful product. I will continue to use it because of the results I saw.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Best I've found

    Great article. I really like how you guys always break everything down.

    I have had a problem with thinning hair for about 10 years now. As I've aged, it's definitely gotten worse. I tried the foam stuff you put on your scalp, but it burned something fierce. And I used Hairfinity for less than a month because I was breaking out.

    I was really skeptical and did a lot of research on this. I looked at all the reviews on YouTube and Google. I checked out their website and liked the ingredients. I liked that it's natural and they donate to charity and whatnot, so I decided to give it a go.

    I've been using their vitamin for about seven months now. My shedding stopped after about a month and a half of using it, and I began to see really thick, new growth at around two months. Everything I read said it takes time for the hair to be repaired and re grow. The first thing I noticed though, was that my scalp felt real clean and nice. I was so happy I could cry, and to be fair I did at one point. My hair is growing in stronger than it has in years, and I really do believe these vitamins have helped. I can put it up again without having to worry about my edges being too thin, or too much scalp showing. I can't tell you how great that feels. I'm actually looking forward to summer again, and so much so, that I started using their argon oil serum, and just got the shampoo as well.

    I noticed you said that it's impossible for the shampoo to stop hair loss, but you're not accounting for the fact that the ingredients include the natural DHT blocker saw palmetto. That ingredient alone (I learned in all my research) is why I tried the vitamin. I read a study that DHT is a big part of hair loss, and the saw palmetto helps to stop the DHT from killing the hair roots. I think it can stop hair loss, maybe not as strong as the vitamin does, but none the less, I enjoyed my first few washes with it, and will report back in a few months with my full results.

    As for the argon repair serum stuff, I really enjoy the smell. It smells like fresh linens or something, and I always put it on my hair last because it makes the frizz go away. It also leaves a soft feel and shine. I don't really know how much repair it does but I really enjoy it.

    So far all my interactions with their customer service has been good. I call them and ask questions sometimes, and Sarah is always there to answer. The shipping seemed to take the normal amount of time, and I suggest you join their email list because they have a lot of sales and stuff, so I get my vitamins and whatnot when they are on sale.

    My only complaint is that I do wish they sold bigger bottles of the vitamins. I can buy three or six bottles, and save money that way, but it just seems like it would make more sense to sell more pills in one bottle, right? Save some plastic, maybe this is something they can think about for the future. I might try the other products in the future, but for now I really am happy with the product and company.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
