You can only imagine how exciting it is to work at Truth In Aging and get to be one of the first to try the brand new Hair Vitality Conditioner (8oz/$44 in the shop). Many of you were involved in the initial trials of making Hair Vitality Complex(1oz/$49 in the TIA shop), and about 70% of you saw a difference. I wasn’t completely ready for Hair Vitality Complex, just yet, so Hair Vitality Conditioner felt like a nice baby step.

Marta goes into detail regarding the components of the very thought-out Hair Vitality Conditioner in her review. Given that we have very different hair types, I needed to see if this conditioner was suitable for mine (dry and damaged to start, but terribly greasy by the 36th hour). The first thing I thought when I used Truth in Aging’s new Hair Vitality Conditioner was “this is nice.” And by nice, I mean, I enjoyed everything from the texture, to the consistency, to the weight, to even the scent. It has a nice light scent that escapes quickly.  It’s so pretty and light that I almost wish it lingered a bit longer. (Who can resist good smelling hair?)

One of my biggest issues with conditioners is the residue feeling you get after you rinse. There are few things worse than conditioner residue weighing your hair down. Luckily, TIA’s conditioner doesn’t do any of these things.  My hair felt soft, clean, and – well, very nice.

In addition to its “niceness,” I was glad to see my hair wasn’t shedding (I usually find enough hair in the drain after my shower to give Barbie a new weave). Once my hair was dry, it was a little frizzy, but significantly less than normal, which was a huge bonus. So far, we’re talking no shedding, great scent, fabulous texture, no slippery aftermath, overall pleasant to use, and detangling without having to glop on loads of product.  But what’s my absolute favorite part? SHINE, SHINE, SHINE!

With Hair Vitality Conditioner, you are intended to leave it on for as long as you can before you rinse off. Also, unlike other conditioners, you want to massage this into your scalp. This will really help with hair growth and shedding concerns. I decided to take this to another level and have some Truth in Aging fun!

Aside from using the product as my regular conditioner, I decided to try it out as a post-coloring mask. I use a really low-key powder dye to cover some grays, which I need to follow with a mask if I don’t want to be left with crispy, tangled strands. I decided to try it out, leaving the product in for about 25 minutes, and was eventually left with the shiniest softest post-dye-job I’ve had in a while.

Then I became even more curious and wanted to see what happens if you don’t rinse. After showering and shampooing, I used Hair Vitality as a leave-in-conditioner. Nearing the end of Day 2, when I would usually be a sloppy oily mess, I was still left with soft, bouncy, ungreasy hair. Marta even looked kind of shocked when I admitted I hadn’t washed my hair – with no hint of disgust.

Hair Vitality Conditioner totally gets my vote. Now, Marta, can you pretty please hurry with that shampoo?

    Thanks for the review Preksha. I followed your lead and have been using the conditioner as a leave-in styling treatment. Really cuts down frizz, gives some shape to my waves, but without losing bounce or making my hair feel greasy. Plus after two months of use, I have little to no hair shedding its way to the drain hole.
