It’s no secret that our humid weather here in Singapore can wreak havoc on our hair, inducing wild and frizzy madness that you likely have to spend some time taming every day with a flat iron at home before you head out.

Add chemical processes such as colouring and bleaching into the equation, and you’re probably faced with even frizzier hair on a daily basis.

While hair frizziness is a real issue in this part of the world, many of us tend to steer away from conventional anti-frizz treatments offered in salons simply because they tend to over-straighten our mane, causing it to look stiff, flat, and unnatural – women with natural curls and waves will definitely attest to that!

Additionally, anti-frizz treatments are notorious for being a lengthy process – it usually takes at least 120 minutes (sometimes even more), and the duration is often a turn-off for most time-starved urbanites.

Also, many of these treatments cannot be performed immediately after bleaching and colouring, either because it will cause your newly dyed mane to fade drastically, or it will add another couple of dreadful hours to your already very long seating in the salon.

With that in mind, Chez Vous, one of the leading names in the world of luxury hair salons in Singapore, has been constantly innovating its signature anti-frizz treatment in order to meet the needs of stylish urbanites who are looking to conveniently tame their wild mane in the shortest amount of time possible (minus the pin-straight effect). The best part? It can be done immediately after hair colouring without altering or fading your hair dye!

After rounds of research as well as trial and error, Chez Vous recently introduced the new and improved Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination.

What’s more, women with natural curls or waves need not worry about stepping out of the salon with flat, pin-straight locks. Despite boasting temporary soft curl-reducing benefits, Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination offers hair-smoothing effects without completely straightening or de-volumising your mane, so your hair looks effortlessly natural and manageable as if you’re born with it.

In fact, you are likely to reap maximum benefits from the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination treatment if you’re any of the following:-

  • Women with natural curls and waves but need a little help controlling the frizz and unruliness without straightening or de-volumising their hair completely;
  • Time-poor urbanites who would like to cut down on their daily blow-drying and hair styling time;
  • Hair colour or blonde enthusiasts who want to ensure that their bleached or gorgeously-coloured hair looks good throughout the day after they’ve stepped out of the salon;
  • Individuals who are keeping the doors open to perming or rebonding their hair in the near future without complications, yet hoping to improve existing hair’s overall appearance and manageability; or
  • Ladies who wish to protect their hair and prevent them from deteriorating over time.

For maintenance, Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination requires that you schedule in a treatment once every two to three months in order to upkeep the natural-looking smoothness in your hair. What’s even better is that each subsequent treatment is capable of amplifying the effectiveness of the previous treatment, making your hair look better, smoother, and softer over time!

To find out how the Chez Vous Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination fared, five Daily Vanity readers and one of our team members headed to the hair salon to try out this treatment. Keep on reading to see what they have to say about the hair therapy.

Chez Vous Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination review: What is Daily Vanity’s verdict?

Chez Vous Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination Reviews Melissa Before After With Text

“To start, my hair has gone through a lot for the sake of vanity – I’ve put it through severe chemical processes regularly in the last two years and the fact that it’s thick and unruly makes matters worse.

As I’m highly concerned about my unmanageable and unhealthy-looking mane, I’ve signed myself up for treatments that claim to moisturise and hydrate as well as those that promise to smooth and tame frizz. Sadly, none of the regular in-salon treatments lasted for my hair – it would feel smooth, hydrated, and nourished right after the treatment, but my hair would just return to its normal state after a few days. As such, I resorted to using my trusted flat iron to style my hair at home as it gave me instant hair-smoothening effects without having to sit in a salon uncomfortably for more than an hour.

While I truly believe that a hair treatment can rejuvenate even the most damaged of hair if it is really as great as it claims to be, I also think it’ll take long hours in the salon to achieve the results desired. So, you can only imagine my skepticism when our editorial team told me that the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination by Chez Vous can work for almost all hair types – including those that are extremely damaged – and in the same 60-minute period! When my team offered me an opportunity to try the new and improved hair therapy, I knew I had to try it and see it for myself.

To my pleasant surprise, the treatment was really as versatile as it claimed to be. Not only did it give me natural-looking smoothness that lasts, it also achieved the results I wanted in just an hour, which I really appreciate.  Apart from the short duration, I also like that it didn’t leave my hair unflatteringly flat, which I’ve experienced with traditional anti-frizz treatments.

On top of that, the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination also barely affects freshly coloured hair, which is a major plus point for those who love to dye their hair regularly. All in all, I’m glad I gave this in-salon treatment at Chez Vous a chance and stepped out of the salon with results that I love.

The fact that I was attended by the warm and helpful team at Chez Vous – they made sure I was comfortable throughout the treatment and even gave me valuable hair growth tips – made me that much more grateful that I didn’t pass up on the opportunity that my colleague extended to me.” – Melissa, 26

Summary

Most reviewers reported seeing treatment and anti-frizz effects that last even after a few washes, which usually weren’t the case with many regular in-salon hair treatments. Many of them also liked that the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination by Chez Vous helped fortify and repair their tresses, leaving them with shinier and healthier-looking locks.

Based on the reviews, Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination seemed to work better for very frizzy, unruly or curly hair as opposed to fairly healthy and straight-looking hair, where the benefits might not be drastically noticeable. It also has a more natural-looking finish compared to rebonding or keratin treatment, as it doesn’t deliver 100% sleek and straight hair that looks unnatural.

All of them particularly appreciated the friendly and professional hairdressing team at Chez Vous who went the extra mile to ensure that the reviewers were comfortable throughout the session. The knowledgeable hairstylists were also said to be very patient and thorough in explaining the process in detail.

Overall, all reviewers agreed that the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination by Chez Vous is the quickest and most comfortable hair-smoothening treatment in town. Almost all of them would not hesitate recommending the versatile treatment to their friends and family because of its efficacy as well as the exceptional service they received in the salon.

To keep my frizzy hair under control, I mostly rely on a flat iron at home but using it frequently has caused my hair to become very dry and brittle, which is why I’m elated to have tried the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination at Chez Vous.

Not only did it help tame my frizzy hair better than other in-salon hair treatments, the treatment effect also stayed on even after a few washes, which allowed me to enjoy my smoother and more moisturised locks for longer.

Additionally, I also feel that the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination helped strengthen and repair my mane effectively, making it look significantly healthier and shinier even though it took only 60 minutes of my time – I even put it to the test by going for a swim in the sea, and it survived just fine!

Best of all, the treatment kept my natural curls intact and eliminated only the extreme frizz. I’m definitely recommending the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination to my social circle because of its ability to enhance your natural hair without imparting any damage. Oh, and the friendly team at Chez Vous is certainly a huge pull factor too.

Having tried regular in-salon treatments that claim to repair and reconstruct but didn’t seem to last long, I resorted to Brazilian blowouts as well as flat iron to manage my wild hair. After trying Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination, I must say that I’m very impressed at the efficacy of the treatment.

Apart from taking less time than other hair-smoothing treatments, I appreciate that it didn’t create pin-straight hair or de-volumise my locks completely. Instead, I saw noticeably positive results that were natural-looking immediately after the hair therapy.

Another aspect of the treatment worth applauding is how it can be done immediately after hair colouring since it does not cause significant fading. Not only that, the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination also lets me perm or rebond my hair in the future without complications, which I think many would appreciate the flexibility it offers.

What’s more, I genuinely enjoyed my time spent at Chez Vous as the professional and knowledgeable team patiently explained every step of the process as well as the aftercare needed to me after I expressed to them that I was unfamiliar with the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination. It’s a two thumbs up for me!

From moisturising treatments to ones that claim to smooth and tame frizz, I’ve tried almost every kind of treatment there is to give my poor hair some much-deserved TLC. With the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination however, the natural-looking smoothness lasted much longer than other regular in-salon hair treatments and cost me only half the time. In fact, I noticed visible results right after one session which I thought was pretty game-changing.

I also like that my hairstylist took the time to brief me thoroughly on the post-treatment care routine by my hairstylist, from using the dedicated Oribe haircare to perming or rebonding hair only after three weeks of the signature anti-frizz treatment.

Overall, I am glad that I now know where I could go for a quick fix when my hair is damaged – Chez Vous has shown me that it can smooth and moisturise my locks to healthy, shiny perfection in just an hour. I’m definitely recommending this innovative, time-saving hair therapy to my friends and loved ones who are struggling with untamed hair.

Previously, I’ve tried hair treatments that claim to moisturise and hydrate as well as those that promise to boost vibrancy and shine, but many of them only lasted for a couple of washes before my hair returned to its normal state.

To manage my frizzy hair at home, I reach for my trusted flat iron simply for its convenience. Unfortunately, it doesn’t deliver lasting results on my hair and I also don’t fancy the idea of exposing my hair to heat so often.

After trying the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination at Chez Vous, I’m pleasantly surprised that it took only 60 minutes of my time to give me hair that’s significantly softer and much more manageable – even my bleached ends felt soft and moisturised!

I also appreciate that my hairstylist continuously reassured me about the treatment process throughout the session and put my comfort level first – I even walked away with amazing post-treatment care tips straight from the expert’s mouth after completing the hair therapy.

Apart from being a much faster procedure than other hair-smoothing treatments, I really like it gave me natural-looking tresses instead of pin-straight hair, which I loathe. However, I’m mildly disappointed that the effects barely lasted on my hair even though I was told that they would stay for five to six weeks.

After three to four washes in a week, my hair had pretty much gone back to its regular state albeit softer than usual. While I understand that regular maintenance sessions every three months are recommended in order to experience the best result, it’s a shame that the results faded so fast for my hair.

With the previous treatment I’ve tried, I liked how my hair looks ‘fixed’ – for a week – but hated the off-putting chemical scent. I even gave keratin treatments a go but unfortunately, my scalp became itchy as a result.

With Chez Vous Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination, I didn’t encounter any of those issues at all, which I feel was largely because of the natural products that the salon used during the treatment. I especially want to give credit to my Chez Vous hairstylist who consciously made an effort to inform me what to expect during and after the treatment, making the entire treatment process a very comfortable one.

Not only did I notice my hair become smoother, softer, and less frizzy after 60 minutes, I also feel that my locks felt stronger and repaired, and looked healthier-looking and shinier without appearing flat at all. The only gripe I had was with the aftercare products, which I felt had an overwhelming fragrance that’s too strong for my liking.

Apart from being a relatively quick procedure compared to other anti-frizz treatments, I also find that its price tag is reasonable for the results that it delivered.
