I have recently been coloring my hair again and noticed how dry it was feeling. It just felt so stiff and not as silky as it used to be before I colored it. After some searching around I landed on this product and I could seriously not be happier. It worked as described and after just 1 treatment I feel back to normal again! I did use Olaplex 3 for the first treatment then followed up a few days later with 8. Pictures speak for themselves!
My hair was severely damaged! I home color every month for the last 20 years. I use heat on my hair daily. And I live near the ocean and scuba dive or swim every few days. I deep condition once every week or two weeks and my hair was so dry, brittle, stringy, and knotty.I primed with Olapalex no. 0 for 15 mins and then coated with Olaplex no. 3 for 15 minutes 2 days ago. My hair felt so much better, but the level of damage I have I knew I would need intensive therapy. I wanted to have the salon treatment of no. 1 & 2, but I’m a travel nurse and headed back to The Virgin Islands in a few days, so I’m just out of time to wait for an appointment this go around. I colored my hair today and “cheated” by using Bond Angel by Brae .01 and added it to my home color. Then rinsed off my color and used the second step of the Bond Angel kit. I followed the directions and left it on my hair in the shower for 15 mins. I then used Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and Oh. My. Goodness!!!! My hair feels amazing!!! It is so healthy! I blow dried and curled my hair after I applied my normal leave in treatment and Chi serum and it hasn’t felt this strong, silky and healthy in forever!!!! If you’re debating, don’t! It’s relatively inexpensive and is easy to do on your own hair at home and the results are simply astounding! My daughter’s hair is mildly damaged and I’m starting her on it, too! We both are amazed by the results and she even wanted to take pictures of my hair because she was so happy that it looks and feels so good!!! #selfcare

First of all, I was nervous about possibly receiving a knock-off product. I believe that what I received is genuine, based on the results I have gotten thus far.I ordered this after I severely damaged my hair through bleaching. Certain sections of my hair literally felt like gum. I knew if I combed through those sections, the hair would literally break right off, and some of it did!. I panicked but did some research and ordered this product. I read other reviews/instructions and here is how I used it.1. Wash your hair very gently (because it is already presumably damaged, like mine was) to get rid of any product build-up and oil. The olaplex needs to be able to penetrate the hair, so your hair should have NO PRODUCT of any kind in it when you apply the olaplex. If your hair is clean, just rinse it so that it is wet. Do not use conditioner, leave-in conditioner, or any oils. Just wash it and rinse out the soap with water. (My hair is already so damaged that I don’t like the idea of washing before AND after, but it is necessary with this product. So when I wash before applying the olaplex, I will wet my hair in the shower, apply a little sulfate-free natural type shampoo onto the actual hair–whereas when I usually wash, I concentrate on the scalp and just let the suds fall down the length of the hair–and gentle suds the product, then rinse with water. I do this to just get the build-up off because when I rinse out the olaplex, I will wash it properly and I do not apply any olaplex directly on my scalp or roots. This is just another step I take to try to preserve what hair health I have left.)2. Towel dry very gently so that it is damp, not soaking.3. Concentrate the product where you have the most damage. Once you have saturated those areas of your hair, put a little on the rest, and gently comb through.4. Immediately put on a plastic shower cap to keep the product from drying out. Also, this helps use the natural heat from your body to (presumably) assist the olaplex in penetrating your hair.5. Sleep on it! I leave it on for 12 hours at a time.6. In the morning, rinse out the olaplex, wash your hair, and then use a good conditioner.I did this twice, then did a variation where I did steps 1-6 above, but after applying the olaplex and before applying the shower cap, I also applied a hair mask over top, slept on it for about 11 hours, and finished up the steps as written above.(This is my variation on getting the best results, so be sure to adapt this to what works best for you.)The directions say to use this 2-3 times per week for severely damaged hair. I have used this three times so far and cannot believe the results. My hair is nowhere near 100% healthy, but the areas that felt gummy now either do not feel gummy at all, or are about 75% improved. I am pretty sure that if I did not purchase this, I would be sporting a pixie cut right now. I plan to continue using the olaplex 2-3 times per week and eventually drop the frequency when I feel my hair is healthy enough to do so.I’ve read some reviews complaining about the cost of this product, and it is no doubt pricey. For me, it has been 100% worth it because my hair was literally about to fall off if the wind blew too hard. I am so grateful to have saved it. After 3 applications, I have barely made a dent in the product. I would estimate that I’ve used maybe 10% of the product? Maybe 15%. My hair would be categorized as long, it is past my shoulders by several inches (but not super long, like not down to my waist or anything.)Other reviewers have pointed out that this is NOT a hair mask or deep conditioner, and it is not. My hair does appear shinier after using it, and it may be softer, but it is in a way that it feels healthier. Your hair will not feel like you just used a hair mask/deep conditioner. It will feel stronger, less frizzy, more manageable, and I have also noticed that what breakage I do have from the bleaching is not noticeable because those hairs are more weighed down (does that make sense?)Overall, I am EXTREMELY happy with this purchase. I was skeptical, reading all of these reviews stating that this was THE MIRACLE product, but I am sold on it now. I will continue to use the product and update this review if needed. I would say that if your hair is severely damaged, the price is worth it, and the product does exactly what it claims to do.

READ THIS!!!I first have to say, I don’t typically write reviews UNLESS the product blows me away, which is rare. To give you a little background about my hair. I had extremely HEALTHY, LONG, THICK blonde hair! It fell to the middle of my back, It was absolutely beautiful. I went to get it colored to give it a break from the highlights, I was going to change it to a strawberry blonde, which I have been many times before and other than blonde, its the only other color I like on me. When I went to the salon, they messed up the color. I ended up with hot pinkish, purple roots and a grayish auburn, mid-shaft to ends. I was in the salon that day for 7 and a half hours. They had to bleach my entire head and leave it on to get all of the screwed up colors out of my hair, resulting to EXTREME chemical damage and breakage. I went in with my hair being all one length to having bangs that were never even cut into my hair. My hair was destroyed and they had to take over 5inches off just to get the ends to LOOK healthy. My hair now sits on my shoulders and has broken pieces all over the top and mid section and all around my hair line. I have literally cried about this since it happened 5 weeks ago. It took me forever to get my hair exactly the way I wanted it and now I am starting over. My hair is no longer manageable, it is kinky and dry and looks it! The salon I had gone to was a new salon closer to where I moved. Prior to this salon I had been going to my original hairstylist for 15 years (I’m 30) so half of my life one person has touched my hair. I live two hours from her now so I decided to give a different salon a try and it was a mistake. I will now be driving 2 hours to go to her every 8 weeks. I texted her about 2 weeks after this all happened and she told me right away to order this product. I didn’t hesitate. I ordered it and received it the beginning of this week. I have used it twice so far and I will tell you what, after the first time I noticed a difference! I am excited to see after a couple months and using this 3 times a week (Extremely damaged hair should use it more than once a week). I also have been sleeping with it on over night which I notice gives me better results. This is not a conditioning treatment, so it does need to be shampooed out. I have a feeling this product will be what saves my hair. I will post before and after pictures once I actually do my hair so you can see the difference!
This stuff is an absolute game changer. I’ve been bleaching my hair for a a year or two now and it has left damage. For the first time, this stuff seriously seemed to restore my hair almost back to it’s pre-bleaching days! It is soft, tame and not nearly as frizzy. I used almost half a bottle and my hair is only to my collar bones so it’s expensive for such a little bottle but it’s worth it.
I was skeptical with all of the hype. I have super thin hair that breaks frequently. One use made a huge difference. My hair looks and feels healthier. It feels both thicker and silkier. More luxurious. And it lasts a full week.

Jan 15 2019I do not know if it is the real Olaplex or not.But I love this stuff. I started bleaching sessions since October 2018. I probably bleached 9x since. I reached to a point of extreme damage where my hair felt soo weak it would not even air dry on its own. It felt & looked like noodles & very gummy. It would take me maybe an hr to brush out my hair because of all the damage/breakage.I started taking better care for my hair.I stopped using 10$ shampoos & started buying quality shampoos & deep hair conditioners + hair masks + oils + oraganic virgin oils.All these products did work for saving my hair , I did see improvement in time.But with one use of OLAPLEX ❤Made my hair very soft & silky + healthier looking .I usually use a special detangling brush because of all the knots I get from breakage & from all the bleaching I’ve done to my hair.With Olaplex 3 I no longer struggle to brush my hair or run my fingers without them getting stuck in my hair from tangles of dryed brittle hair.This stuff is just what my damaged hair needed.This was just half the bottle used on my 26inches of hair. I still have half left.At first I was hesitant on buying because not only was it very expensive but it is a very small bottle.I am soo glad I bought this.Favorite hair products for damaged bleached hair◼Olaplex 3◼Redken Ph Bonder◼Redken Extreme Conditioner◼Redken Shampoo for damage hair◼Redken Diamond Oil◼Redken Heat Protectant◼Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm◼One n Only Argan Oil◼One n Only Aragan Oil Repair Mask◼Herbal Essence Deep Moisturizer Conditioner◼Hair Food Sulfate Free◼Redken Extreme Anti Snap◼Silk Elements Mega Silk heat protectant spray◼Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (HELPED ME ALOT)Hope this helps someone, good luck!Thanks for reading ?

My hair dresser suggested that I use this product as my hair was getting dry. I initially bought it from her, but was able to get it here for a more reasonable price. It has helped my hair be more manageable.
Quise hacer la reseña porque ya vi algunos videos en los que se dice que han recibido un producto falso!! ? aunque no creo que sea mi caso, les recomiendo que lo compren directo en la pagina de Olaplex. Yo no tenia pelo, era una soga lo que tenia, porque adoro los highlight y los he llevado por años, al tener un pelo finito he acabado con el, cuando supe de este producto lo quise probar antes de tomar la decisión de cortar mi pelo y olvidarme de las decoloraciones, lo recibí ayer y enseguida me lavé la cabeza y me lo apliqué, dormí con el y en la mañana me lo enguagué, ya en este punto vi que el pelo había dado un cambio impresionante, super suave y manejable y recuperé el brillo que tenia hace muchos años, creo que vale la pena, yo apliqué una mascarilla y acondicionador antes de secar y siento que acabo de salvarle la vida a mi Pelo, ahora voy a cortar las puntas y seguiré el tratamiento para siempre !!! Lo recomiendo 100%
The first time I used this product, I was so impressed! My hair felt and looked so much softer. I started using once a week about a month ago, and I am so happy with the results so far! It’s a keeper
