    Let me start by saying this thing is a miracle worker! I've been hearing about this for years but never had a damaging chemical process that I'd need to use it, until now. I decided to dye my hair blue, it's something I have been wanting to do for years but didn't want to bleach my full head, I have reddish brown hair, a medium to dark brown, that I dye with permanent hair color, so I bleached my entire head with 40 volume peroxide and bleach powder, luckily my hair bleached easily to a very pale blonde that I didn't need to bleach again, but that first round destroyed my curly hair. I have loose curls/waves and my hair looked like brillo when it was dry. I was so nervous, I couldn't comb through, it was elastic, it was a mess. I then dyed it using Arctic fox hair dye which is vegan, no chemicals and moisturizes the hair. My hair then looked great color wise, it was soft but looked fried, and I mean fried!!! That was Last Monday, so I spent the week doing loads of Argan oil, had to flat iron it to help hide the extreme damage, but still the ends would look super dry and pretty much like brillo, and we had the worst week in NYC, hot and very humid, which didn't help at all. I washed my hair with sulfate free shampoo to remove all the Argan oil i used and then put Olaplex all over my hair, combed, put a shower cap and let it stay for 2 hours. Then rinsed, shampooed and put a "It's a 10" hair mask for about 10 minutes and massaged it on my hair. And wow, just wow, my hair felt like hair again, I was able to blow dry it straight with a comb, and NO and I mean Not a single hair got stuck or broke off on the brush! My hair is back to life! It's soft, shiny, super strong and I"m so happy again!!! This pic is from a couple of hours after I used it and you can see it looks like hair and not a steel sponge! Only one application and it already did that, can you imagine with regular use?

  • Use a clarifying shampoo prior to applying Olaplex 3

    Posted by Jenny867x5309 on Purebeauty

    I purchased Olaplex after reading tons of both positive and negative reviews. What I learned: 1) You must was your hair with a clarifying shampoo prior to using Olaplex 3. The chemical bonds can't reconnect if your hair has build up from product or hard water. 2) Olaplex needs to be washed out of your hair with a clarifying shampoo. 3). Olaplex is not a conditioner so it will not hydrate your hair. If you have dry damaged hair you must apply a conditioner after using Olaplex. If you follow these three steps you should have a successful outcome. I'm 48 years old and have been bleaching my hair since high school (30 years). I am pleased that my natural waves have returned and the frizz is gone after using Olaplex

  • It (probably) works!

    Just bleached my hair pale ash blonde from a virgin level 2 black. Only shampoo once or twice a month, no or VERY rare heat, hair masks in lieu of washing about once a week. So my hair started out pretty healthy and stayed pretty healthy through the bleaching and toning but it got a bit dry on the ends.

    I used it after bleaching and before toning. I've only used it once but have also been doing hair oil treatments and some other hair masks I've never used before through the whole ordeal so it's hard to pinpoint what helped most. I'll update after a few weeks of use but whatever the cause, my hair is 99% back to its former glory (1% taken off because it's got way more volume now which I'm assuming is due to some inevitable damage that I cannot feel with my fingers) even after 3 bleaching processes with 30 volume and one toning session with 20 volume. If you've already got unhealthy hair and you don't take care of it, I doubt it'll help you but it will probably help maintain healthy hair through something like bleaching.
    Note: I gave it 5 stars because it's worth investing in but ideally I'd knock off a star because the bottle is so small (expected this. added carmex to a picture for scale) and you have to use so much even for a guy like me with shortish hair. Just not cost effective enough for me to buy it more than once seeing as I take good care of my hair.

    But... 1 had used my bottle twice and my hair did take to bleaching much better. Now saying that.... it didnt make my hair shiny or bouncy or moisturized as it just helps to protect the hair in between or after a bleach process. This is NOT a conditioner or miracle mask. If your hair was dry before... it will be dry afterwards that is why I would suggest (and instructions say) a deep conditioner after you wash out this formula.

    What I did try was the overnight process. Seemed silly. I'm a level 2 color and processed to a level 9. over the course of 4 years I have bleached and colored and removed color to add color and strip color and bleach some more, etc. I'm a bleach b. Cant help it. I'm also a 3A/B hair texture... half black and Asian. By year 4.... i had stopped going to the salon which uses olaplex 1 and 2 in my hair (which explains why I was able to bleach and dye my hair so much with barely any damage at all). ... and I would say 98% of ends are breaking off... i had cut about 4 inches of hair off and i still see i need to cut another 4!

    I pulled out my olaplex and said what the heck and kept it on overnight with my heating cap on. Wash it out the next day and deep conditioned.

    I used my regular oil and heat protectant, blow dry on cool setting and flat ironed my hair (which I stopped doing for a week) and my split ends literally looked like they disappeared! I wish I did a before and after. Much better results than just leaving it on for 10 minutes (which helped but I got an even better result leaving it on overnight). My hair looks healthy and it actually feels stronger. Yu have to personalize what you use after using this product to get the best results.

    Really good stuff!

    UPDATE: uploaded a few pictures of the changes in hair color I go through.. my hair has remained long and strong using olaplex. Its incredible how often I can change my color now.
