Trying out Olaplex at home

My hair takes a beating. With the regular bleaching (professionals doing it not me) and straightening, It takes a lot. One thing I like to do is make sure that it stays somewhat healthy and not look like a pile of straw. Ive used a lot of hair masks that have kept my hair looking good and feeling healthy. But overtime Ive been to the hairdressers they have told me to get Olaplex to use at home to keep my hair in check.

Seriously at first I just thought it was them trying to plug a hair brand as an add on to your hair session. It wasn’t until my friend who is a hairdresser told me its not a load of bullshit and I should give it a go. Peer pressured. So I went and bought a bottle from (thats where I get most of my hair stuff if I don’t want to leave the house). It was $50! Yep $50 for a 100ml bottle. God damn! This shit better work. So I received the treatment after two days, not bad timing. So what this treatment does is: Strengthens and repairs hair,Restores health and texture, Maintain strength and integrity and Reduces breakage. So basically makes your hair look alive again.

How to use it……

(According to the back of the bottle instructions)

  1. Apply a generous amount to damp/towel dried hair, from the scalp to the ends.
  2. Comb through once and leave on for 10 or more minutes.
  3. Rinse thoroughly from hair, shampoo and condition.
  4. Can be used once a week or 2-3 times on compromised hair.

So fortunately I have had my haircut and don’t have as much hair to cover up. I was worried Id chew through the bottle in one go but luckily I got through 3 maybe a 4th ( i still have a bit in the bottle. God Im a stingy bitch. Ok so the results; well the first time I did feel a slight change in my hair with its overall feel, wasn’t too spectacular. The second and third time my hair I noticed improvement. Its fuzziness had gone down a signifiant amount and the feel was softer and smoother. This was really good for my hair after going to a lot of events were I had to style my hair a lot and do a lot of weird and wonderful things to it.

With this treatment, it was great it worked for my hair. I am happy that this worked (because spending $50 on something that doesn’t work ID BE PISSSED!), although the price does put me off a little only because $50 for a small bottle of product errrr. Obviously I’ve taken care of my hair so I don’t need to use it as frequently but it might be something I can use every so often to keep up the health of my hair between salon visits. Will be definitely taking this on my holiday in August since I know I will be bringing the glam then.



(with good hair)
