Olaplex No. 3 Review

Olaplex No. 3 Treatment on white background (on the bed flatlay) with green leaves from flowers, botancial, beauty blog and hair review
Guys, gals, dolls, my honeys, we need to have a little chat about Olaplex. I've spent the past six weeks putting it to the test and my hair has leveled up...

Paris Fashion Week 2015 - Kim K shook us all with her dramatically bleached blonde hair. She literally went from black to blonde overnight. If the rumours are true, Olaplex did that. Well, bleach did that, but Olaplex kept the hair on her head. I'm pretty sure that's the first time I, alongside joe public, really heard about Olaplex. It was a professional product, something very few salons offered, but apparently it was made of unicorns and rainbows and magic and fairy dust and bloody witchcraft.

(It's actually made of a "patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage", so, there).

Following the instructions for the iddy biddy (it's not that small) No. 3 treatment, I usually pre-cleanse my hair twice with Head & Shoulders clarifying shampoo to wash away any product buildup, and to help the Olaplex penetrate the hair shaft - ooh err. I then apply the Olaplex to damp hair, which is advised if like me, you've got super thick hair, concentrating on my lengths and ends - my problem areas. Then after combing through and making sure I've not left out a huge chunk at the back or somehow managed to scalp myself, I pop a shower cap on and my swoon-worthy self (lol jk) leaves it overnight to perform some pure wizardry on my locks. If sleeping with wet hair and a shower cap on isn't your jam, a 30 minute treatment is still enough time to work on your hairs health.

Unlike many other hair restorative treatments, Olaplex works from the inside out. In fact I'd prepared not to notice a difference after just one use, but oh boy, did that first time pull through. And now after using it consistently for a few months, my hair feels like virgin hair. It. Has. Never. Been. This. Soft. Ever.

The application is v simple, it sits, minds it's business and gets to work, then washes out absolutely fine. Is it pricey? Heck yeah. Would I repurchase? Heck yeah, I already have. Catch me in Sally's eyeballing the Olaplex counter with my Mum. (Just for reference: please buy Olaplex through an official distributor/stockist, because I can't think of anything worse than paying over the odds for bootleg basic conditioner from eBay).
