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.
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.

it's expensive either way, and not a miracle worker, but if you have damaged hair it's worth a try-- I have babyfine processed hair so I will continue to use it.
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!
I was foolish and tried to bleach my hair myself and dye it purple. Of course that didn't turn out so great. I bleached it twice in one day because I couldn't get my natural dark hair light enough. After it dried I was horrified at the damage I had done and my hair wasn't even blonde lol. My hair was FRIED. When I touched the ends it felt like pubic hair. Sorry for my description but that's the best way I can describe it.
Piece of advice. Apply on damp hair. This helps you use less product. Section your hair and make sure your hair is saturated. Trust me, you don't have to use the whole bottle even if you have long hair. A small amount will coat your hair. I have hair past my shoulders and have done three treatments and still have a lot in my bottle. Also, use a wide tooth brush on your hair to make sure it is coated evenly.
I left it on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then added a hair mask on top of it and waited about 10 more minutes with it wrapped. After that I rinsed it with cool water with a tiny bit of shampoo at the scalp area.
I did not towel dry my hair since it can be harsh on brittle hair. Instead I gently twisted my hair to remove excess water. While my hair was damp I applied oil only to my ends and let it air dry.
My hair feels amazing! Good luck guys! If you guys have just dry hair you probably don't need to do all the steps I did but I totally destroyed my hair. And i'm telling you, just the product alone made my hair feel soft.
