I got these Vitress products for review some days ago. My hair has always been super hard to manage and style because it’s thick, coarse, dry, wavy, and well… damaged. I’ve stopped rebonding but I color my hair a lot because of the white strands so it’s still damaged. That said, combing through my hair after I take a shower is hard work. The damaged parts get so tangled that sometimes I see knots. Ugh!
I’ve tried a lot of hair care products and I have found some that work, but they’re usually pricey! So to be honest, I wasn’t expecting a lot when I got these. Anyhow, let’s go through the stuff I got, starting with Vitress Hair Polish. Vitress Hair Polish is a light, non-greasy cream which detangles hair, making it shiny and easier to manage. It’s best applied after towel-drying hair. There are 3 variants:
- Vitress Hair Polish Strengthening (P35 for 50ml / P56 for 100ml) – This one uses the Vita Strength Formula to help prevent split ends and breakage.
- Vitress Hair Polish Long Lasting Fragrance (P35 for 50ml / P56 for 100ml) – This uses the Scent-Infinity Complex to keep hair smelling fragrant the whole day.
- Vitress Hair Polish Sun Protect (P35 for 50ml / P56 for 100ml) – This uses the Sun-Defense System to protect hair from harmful UV rays.
I also got Vitress Cuticle Coat, a silicone-based serum which protects hair from damage, tames frizzy strands, and boosts shine. There are 5 variants, the plain Vitress Cuticle Coat (not in the photo) and the more specific types which addresses different hair conditions:
- Vitress Hair Repair Cuticle Coat (P75 for 30ml / P49 for 20ml) – This is recommended for chemically-treated hair as it uses a Hydro-Restore System to moisturize and repair damage.
- Vitress Heat Protect Cuticle Coar (P75 for 30ml / P49 for 20ml) – This is for those who use heated styling tools like irons, hair dryers, and curlers as it uses a Thermo-Shield Complex to protect hair from heat damage.
- Vitress Instant Relax Cuticle Coat (P75 for 30ml / P49 for 20ml) – This uses Vita-Relax Technology to help flatten unruly, wavy hair for a straighter look.
This is the latest variant, Vitress Solenn Cuticle Coat (P80 for 30ml), designed and developed by Vitress brand ambassador Solenn Heusaff. It tames curls and waves for smoother, silkier, and shinier hair. Everything from its packaging to its baby powder scent was all Solenn’s idea.
Anyhow, I decided to put Vitress to the test this weekend, starting with Vitress Hair Polish Strengthening. I wasn’t really going outdoors and I didn’t really need all-day scented hair so I decided to go with this one. I immediately dispensed the product right after I got out of the shower.
I used maybe a 1-peso coin sized amount to cover my hair’s entire length. The first thing I noticed was its detangling powers. Wow! Not even expensive oils in the P1k+ range have been able to completely detangle my hair. I was floored that this P35 product was able to do it! My hair was incredibly easy to comb through!
My hair was still manageable after it had dried. Nice!
Oh my, this was how my hair was when I woke up yesterday morning! It’s a lot tamer than usual so I’m really beyond impressed. Anyhow, we were attending a children’s party so I got to prepping.
I decided to try the Vitress Solenn Cuticle Coat. It sounds just like Vitress Instant Relax Cuticle Coat in terms of benefits and functions, except that it smells like baby powder and I like the scent of baby powder!
I applied it to my hair and it was surprisingly light and non-greasy. You know those little strands of hair which stand at the top of your scalp? Vitress Solenn Cuticle Coat was able to tame them! I somehow had this idea that using a serum like this would make my hair heavy, sticky, and greasy-looking, but looking at the photo above, my hair looks very natural. In fact, it’s like I didn’t apply anything! It still has volume and it doesn’t even look the slightest bit oily.
The secret is in the application. Of course, if you put too much, you will have icky-looking greasy hair. Like any other hair serum you have to take it easy when applying Vitress Cuticle Coat because too much will flatten your hair in a not-so-good way. Less is more, so start with just a little and add if you need more. The proper way to use the Cuticle Coat would be to dispense a pea-sized amount onto your palm. Warm up the product by rubbing your palms. Then apply onto your hair. In my case, since my hair is super long and super thick, I need a bit more than a pea-sized amount. 🙂
I was able to wear my hair down during the entire party! I normally bring a ponytail holder because it gets really frizzy and icky so I have to tie it up sometime. OMG. I love it!
What I like about Vitress Hair Polish:
- So far it’s one of the rare products which can detangle my hair completely.
- It costs only P35 for 50ml!
- It makes hair so much more manageable. I actually LIKED my hair when I woke up and I usually hate it no matter what time of day lol!
- It’s very very mildly scented so if you’re using your favorite shampoo, don’t worry, your hair will still smell like it.
What I like about Vitress Cuticle Coat:
- It keeps those tiny telltale hairs on top of your head and everywhere else in check.
- It makes hair even smoother and more manageable.
- A little product goes a looooong way, for my hair length and thickness all I needed was an amount just a bit bigger than a 25-centavo coin.
- It’s super affordable at P49 for 20ml!
- It comes in a convenient size so you can easily tote it around in your bag!
Both products can be used on either damp or dry hair. I prefer using the Vitress Hair Polish after I shampoo because it’s my detangler, while I apply the Vitress Cuticle Coat when my hair is dry to help me style it and protect it from damage.
Downside? Given my experience with the products, none whatsoever! Vitress products are inexpensive, effective, and available just about everywhere.
Vitress products can be purchased at all leading supermarkets, drugstores, and department stores nationwide.
