I just tried OLAPLEX Nº 0 & Nº 3 🤷🏻♀️
☁️This 2-part treatment system takes 20+ minutes. You do it on dry hair before you shampoo & condition. First you saturate your hair with Nº 0, wait 10 minutes, don’t rinse, then add Nº 3 & leave on for an additional 10+ minutes. Nº 3 can be used alone, but Nº 0 is meant to be used only as a precursor for Nº 3. I originally bought this for my bf’s heavily damaged hair, but he’s so lazy about using anything😑 So finally we made it happen. My hair isn’t currently damaged from bleach like it used to be, however, because I have a neurological disease, some days I’m in so much pain, tossing & turning in bed all day, I pull my hoodie over my head & use a heating pad on it. Days like this my thick hair becomes a wreck. Swipe for photos. I definitely get a lot of breakage around my hairline, I’m so over it lol, I’ve got silk pillowcases coming in the mail💤💌 I picked a “bad hair day” like this from the other day after my flareup calmed down to try this 2-part treatment system for you guys. I’m aware that no hair treatment can make a strand of hair full length again once it’s snapped short... I was more curious to see what this treatment could do for my bf’s hair. He washes it waaay too much because he thinks it’s dirty due to his job, which gives his hair tons of sun damage. I was mortified when he told me he washes it twice a day! Don’t do this! It strips away your natural oils! His hair is so brittle & dry! OLAPLEX - No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment Kit $28/5.2 of Nº 0 + 1 oz of Nº 3 Everyone seems to be raving about Olaplex products, so I had my hopes set pretty high. This may be an unpopular opinion, but this treatment didn’t impress me much. I have to use sooo much product for my hair & it’s only shoulder length. My hair is extremely thick, I’m no stranger to using extra product, but this was a little ridiculous. I used almost the entire full size Nº 0 & every last drop of the sample size Nº 3. The amount I used on my bf was quite little. His hair is very thin & only like 4-5” long. OLAPLEX - No.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment $28/5.2 oz He thought I was using a lot, because the nozzle dispenses so slowly (which is good I guess because the consistency is like water) but the level only went down about a half inch. Not really any scent. I found it so time consuming to do this step myself. The applicator made me feel like I was in highschool using box dye. I actually transferred it to an empty (& clean) Briogeo spray bottle because I was so frustrated. It dispensed it a lot faster, but still be very careful. I had a cut on finger & it burned really bad, so don’t get it in your eyes! OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector $28/3.3 oz Similar to typical hair conditioner in texture/consistency/scent-easy to apply. THE RESULTS: His hair: still fried This just wouldn’t be feasible for my hair considering I emptied a $28 bottle for 1 use. Hair was soft after nothin special.

🥛🎀 Marie by Mad Beauty- bath milk & lip balms
Mad Beauty Limited create cosmetics, body care, sheet masks, lip balm & more in collaboration with Disney, Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Barbie etc. Last year the UK-based brand had its Disney license extended to cover the US, Canada, Mexico & Brazil. I haven’t tried anything else by Mad Beauty that I know of, but sadly I was pretty disappointed by these products... Unfortunately there were no ingredients available online on Mad Beauty’s site, nor on ‘Box Lunch’ where I purchased these. They were inexpensive & cute, but I urge you to never purchase something without knowing the ingredients, I broke my own rule & it was a major bummer. Marie is one of my favorite Disney characters. Watch Aristocats if you haven’t!!!!! So good 🎹🐈 MAD BEAUTY - Disney Marie Bath Milk Bottle $8/12.68 oz This bubble bath is supposed to have a Peony & Cherry Blossom fragrance, but honestly it just smells sooooo bad. Kind of like burnt plastic & wet cardboard together, I’m not kidding. It’s unusable! I tried... & I just couldn’t get past the scent, it’s a palpable disgust. I don’t know who would like this. Sorry kitty! Not gonna cry over it, but this milk is SPOILED❌🥛 The ingredients are pretty bad, & side note... a piece of pink plastic was floating in the bottle, ew?!!!! I actually made a loop for the ingredients because they’re curved around the bottle so much... & nowhere to be found on the internet. MAD BEAUTY - Disney Marie Lip Balm Duo 🧶 $8/.05 oz X2 🍒Cherry & Vanilla🌿 Again, I was bummed I didn’t have any way of finding out ingredients prior to purchasing... These do contain mineral oil, which is an ingredient I personally like to avoid completely, especially in lip balm. But they do have vitamin E. They’re so so cute, but very very small, I can really only use my pinky to apply. (Yes you read correctly 0.05 oz each! That’s 1/3 of a typical chapstick tube. They’re decently moisturizing, but nothing spectacular. The shimmer you see in the photos is barely noticeable when wearing. I’m actually gonna rate these separately, the ingredients differ slightly & obviously there are 2 different scents. 🍒CHERRY: ⭐️⭐️ The scent is just too strong, very nauseating cherry candy 🍭😝 🤍VANILLA: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The scent for this one is actually quite nice. It’s much more subtle than the other, I love natural vanilla scents & this surprised me, it’s pretty natural smelling. Fragrance is lower on the ingredients list for the Vanilla, & vitamin E is higher on the list. This is the one gem 💎 from this haul! 🎀PS- my pets gave me the hardest time while trying to shoot this lol... Poor baby got chewed up & taken on a little trip through the dirt, but we spruced her up again with BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O wipes & my ANNA SUI - ANNA SUI Hair Brush 😂
ANNA SUI-ANNA SUI Hair Brush
Anna Sui Vanity hairbrush🌹
I’ve never really had a nice hair brush, they always get lost or chewed up by dogs lol💗 When I lose it, I honestly just stop brushing my hair until I find it, it’s really stupid. I’m trying to get more into hair care, it’s usually last on my list for upkeep & care😞 Upon loosing my last hairbrush for the 100th time, I wanted to get something cute that I would honestly care more about enough to keep track of... My hair is really thick & I’ve probably never used the “right” brush for it. When it gets tangled, it’s bad. After I got injured, I didn’t brush my hair for a while & my roommate spent 4 hours brushing it out lol. My hair was color treated back then, so it’s hard to say if this would measure up to that. But I remember my friend being like hell no I’m not using your brush on your hair & she used her boar bristle brush. In my experience a solely boar bristle brush doesn’t really work for my thick hair, but I love the feel on my scalp. So I was excited to try the combination of synthetic “boar” type bristle & the other plasticy ones with the little ball on top that this Anna Sui brush delivers. I read several reviews about this hairbrush comparing it to Mason Pearson, & they all said this was better. I personally haven’t tried a Mason Pearson, but the comparable models to the Anna Sui brush based on size & bristle count run between $175-$195! And the Anna Sui one is synthetic, so no use of animal hair. ANNA SUI - ANNA SUI Hair Brush $38 I really like this brush , but I don’t think it would be great for curly or textured hair types. My hair is really thick, & I had to be extra patient with this brush, but the results were worth it to barely break off any hair. It did create a bit of static for me, but I think that’s normal at my high elevation, but didn’t last. I love the way this feels on my scalp, it’s very gentle, & I have the most sensitive scalp ever!! This made my hair very smooth compared to my old crappy brush (the brand rubbed off, so I don’t even know it is, I used to just get drugstore brushes under $10) So this was a big upgrade for me. 5 stars is probably just because I’m so wowed at the difference, but this brush isn’t for everyone... It is sooo pretty though, I love the Anna Sui aesthetic🥀🖤 About 9” long, & actual brush plate is about 5”x 3” Made in Japan 🇯🇵 Anna Sui is an American fashion designer of Chinese descent, born in Detroit.
