Olaplex on Natural Hair: Believe the Hype?

I have seen this product before but I was certain that it likely wasn’t for my type of hair because, well let’s be honest, most salon products aren’t really geared towards ethnic hair...certainly not in it’s natural state. 🤷🏽‍♀️ However, after moving from the curly hair friendly climate of Miami and into the not so forgiving temperatures of NYC, I had to find a solution for my stressed tresses. I’ve had terrible breakage lately and needed a fix fast. So after much hesitation, I decided to take the leap (and spend a little $$$) after researching and reading a ton of reviews. Not going to lie...$28 for 3 ounces of product was....not appealing...AT ALL. Anyone with thick or curly hair knows how product can disappear in there lol. So I got 2...just in case lol. 💸💸😩🤣 On application to my damp (not shampooed) hair, I was quite surprised that it only took 1/3 of the the container to coat my hair (I sectioned in 4 parts to be thorough). I left it in overnight, rinsed it out, then shampooed and conditioned as usual. Guys. I have become a believer in Olaplex. Immediately after the initial rinse, my hair felt pillow soft. I was still skeptical thinking this silky feeling would wash away with shampooing. It did not. Ummm...wow. This is nice. Also major points...I ONLY SHED A FRACTION OF A FRACTION OF THE NORMAL AMOUNT OF HAIR DURING WASH & DETANGLING. HUGE! This stood out most because it has bothered me to see so much shed hair lately and I almost shed none in this wash! I now believe the hype, so for any other curly girls out there looking for a fix to damaged and breaking hair...this is worth a try. Holy Grail, dare I say?!

msjessijYes, it’s quite surprising how little it takes to saturate so much hair lol! It may be a while before I need to buy again since I bought two small ones, but I’ll definitely buy the big one next time. It’s honestly worth it to buy a gallon of this stuff if they sell it lol. 🤣

Product Mentioned
I was really hoping it was all hype....
I've been using this once a week for 3 weeks, and I was hoping it was all hype (because it's $38/100mL), but Y'ALL! It really works! I havent noticed high-voltage shine really quickly, but my hair immediately has felt immediately bouncier and softer. Even on days 2 to 3, when my hair starts getting limp and oily! I chemically treat my hair a couple times a year, but I very rarely use heating tools and only wash twice per week. That being said, my hair is prone to split ends. While this product is probably a miracle worker for severely damaged hair, Olaplex believes this product is good for EVERYONE. I have to agree with them. The only reason I rated this 4 stars is because of the price per volume. I have quite thick hair, so I'll probably need to buy more after 6-8 uses. Also you use this before shampooing, and you have to pre-wet your hair before use (which I find minorly irritating). I'd definitely prefer it to be somrtjing I could use in the shower. WOULD DEFINITELY REPURCHASE, THOUGH!

The product that SAVED my hair
There’s a good chance you’ve heard of Olaplex, and there’s a good reason for that! I have been using the OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector for at least the last 5 years. It has seen me through years of scalp bleaching and the inevitable hair coloring mishaps. The product works to strengthen the bonds in your hair that is broken down by things like bleach, hair color and heat styling. I use it once a week even when I’m not treating my hair because it has really helped me with growing my hair long and healthy. However, this isn’t a normal hair mask, it goes on BEFORE you shampoo and condition, what I usually do is put it on in the morning when I know I’ll just be sitting around the house and then wash it off in the afternoon- the longer the better! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

Olaplex No.3 to the RESCUE!!!
Olaplex No.3 to the RESCUE!!!
Olaplex No. 3 Perfector Hair Treatment, it repairs dry, brittle hair by relinking broken bonds caused from chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. From my experience and having some cosmetology background, olaplex is the only product out there that has been proven to work from the inside out in your hair! It is definitely a revolutionary and patented technology within the formula! Like I said, it is the only one formula out there that works like this! Olaplex has been proven in the beauty community, for example, people whom used to get perms, would fear to do any bleaching process do to the damage, now with olaplex in the market, process such as perms and bleach can be done with olaplex to help with the integrity of the hair! Amazing right???? And the best part, the product was founded in my home town of Santa Barbara Ca! 🤪❤️ Consider it your at-home treatment that'll transform straw-like hair to silky shiny🥰OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector -Limited Edition

This is my routine for caring for my bleached balayage hair while I am unable to go to the salon to get it touched up. I have tried many different purple shampoos: dpHUE, amika, and even Joico’s blue shampoo, but my absolute favorite is Redken’s purple shampoo! It smells amazing first of all, but also tones my brassiness SO much! Something that I only recently learned is that the longer you let it sit on your hair, the better it works. So now I apply it very first thing in the shower and let it sit while I do other things.This tones my hair for at least a week, so I only use it maybe every other time I wash my hair. Something else you can do to prep your hair for your next appointment is to keep it strong and healthy by using the Olaplex conditioning treatment. I use this about 2-3 times per month because it comes in such a small bottle and I want it to last! This is not just a conditioning treatment, it repairs the bonds in your hair that are broken when it gets bleached, so it really helps build back up the strength of your hair. These two products will keep you brass-free and ready for your next appointment!

How to Care for Long, Thin and Bleached Hair ☀️
How to Care for Long, Thin and Bleached Hair ☀️
I have very long and thin bleached hair so it gets very dry easily and also can get extra oily at times with regular washing. I wash it in the morning, brush it through and let it air dry after adding in some products below! 1. Add Hydration ✨Bleach dries out hair like no other so adding hydration back into your hair is going to be important. I use a variety of products for this. One thing I like is to use really nourishing shower products like the Olaplex conditioner. These products are gorgeous and make my hair feel better and softer. Their unique technology repairs hair from within. ✨Another product I love is the Gisou hair oil which is good for hydration but also styling if you’re just leaving your hair down for the day. It smells amazing and the honey is great for hair. It tames flyaways, somehow just makes hair look better and hydrated. ✨Hair masks can also be very useful and Olaplex has one too. I also like the Amika hair masks for extra hydration and try to use these at least once a week to repair and hydrate. 2. Detangle ✨One product I love to use right after washing is the leave in conditioner spray by It’s a 10! This has so many uses, hence the name, but I love the smell, nourishing and detangling properties of this the most. The detangler aspect is also useful so I’m not causing unnecessary damage when brushing if I have knots. 3. Take a Hair Supplement ✨After starting my first, I’ve found that my hair definitely grows faster and feels better than before! I use Hush & Hush supplements. They have them for hair, daily vitamins and one that is super amazing for nighttime if you’re struggling with relaxing and sleeping. You can use my name as a code to save money too if you’d like (“chelsea”). This is important because you’re giving your body what it needs and more to care for your hair health and also your body. 4. Use Products with Extra Heat Protection ✨I personally like Amika’s The Wizard because it smells amazing and does the job. Generally, temperatures over 450 F won’t break or damage hair but I avoid lots of heat and styling just because my hair is already damaged and dry, but when I do I always use products with extra protection. Regular hair cuts help too to prevent additional breakage at the bottom!

If you use any lightener on your hair, Olaplex is a must! There is a reason why hairstylist swear by this brand. 🤍Product: OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector $28 🤍Product claims: Repairs damage Strengthens hair cuticle 🤍Why I bought the product? I first bought this product after bleaching my hair and not being able to comb through it. 🤍Experience with the product? Olaplex No. 3 does what it claims and more! Within the first use I noticed my dry, damaged, bleached hair become stronger, and shinier. (AFTER JUST ONE USE!) 🤍How to use? I use this product as a mask. I will apply to my towel dried hair for 10-30 minutes than wash out. If your hair is brittle from bleach treatments, definitely consider this product ☺️

My hair is super oily. I really hate summer cuz my hair gets greasy in just one day. I have to wash it every night. If I don't wash it for three days, my scalp gets itchy. I think that even though my hair is oily, my scalp is dry and sensitive.  I have seen a couple of my friends using shampoos from Klorane. They recommend the mango butter one to me. But I did some research, and found that the mango butter one is for dry hair. So that doesn't really work for me. I then got very interested in this KLORANE - Soothing & Anti-Irritating Shampoo with Peony.  The pink packaging is very pretty. Peony is also one of my favorite flowers. It claims that it can  rebalance and bring back comfort to the scalp. So I wanted to give it a try.  About It: A little bit pink, not sticky not thick Ingredient: free of Parabens, Silicones, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). It is not irritating at all.  I bought a KLORANE - Gel Conditioner With Peony as well.  It is also light pink. It smells super good. It is very refreshing. I like this better than the shampoo. Washing my hair has become a great leisure for me. I normally use the shampoo first during a shower. Then I apply the gel conditioner evenly on my hair. I wait about 2 to 3 minutes before I rinse it off.  I don't really see how this gel conditioner moisturizes my hair, maybe because my hair is oily. But this conditioner really conforms my scalp.  I have been using this combo for a week. And I wash my hair every night. I can feel my hair looking brighter than it used to be. And my scalp doesn'r feel tight or sensitive. I really love how it feels after I wash my hair!  I highly recommend you to give it a try! It is truly amazing. If you have any other great hair products, let me know!🥰🥰
