What number of of you keep in mind screaming when Olaplex No.3 was lastly accessible to us regular folks?! I had solely used Olaplex merchandise when getting my hair accomplished within the salon and the No.3 Hair Perfector was all I heard about! To this point, No.3 is the one Olaplex product I’ve used and I’ve been fortunately testing three others to see how my hair responds for the final couple of weeks. Spoiler alert – I’ve discovered each a must have in addition to a “this is not working for me and I want to provide it away” product!
Years in the past, what made Olaplex so interesting to these of us with colour-treated and/or broken hair was that the merchandise have been about rebuilding disulphide bonds in hair (bonds that give hair form and physique) and slowly restoring and repairing hair. Now, I really feel like there are much more merchandise that do that, however 5+ years in the past I do not keep in mind seeing many.
No.4 and No.5 Bond Upkeep Shampoo and Conditioner*
Firstly, the scent of each the shampoo and conditioner is refined, slightly citrusy and nice. I didn’t trouble to showcase the consistency of those or any of the Olaplex merchandise in my palms as a result of there wasn’t something too revolutionary. The shampoo lathered properly and is supposed for use alone or to rinse out No.3. It did a great job of serving to my scalp and hair really feel clear, but it surely did depart the ends of my hair feeling a bit dry after which oddly sufficient felt prefer it weighed down my hair on the roots.
On the primary utilization of No.4 and No.5, I often apply a little bit of conditioner to the highest of my hair as properly as a result of I’ve usually dry hair with a ton of flyaways particularly round my roots. I used a dime-sized quantity and immediately once I was blow-drying my hair, I might see that I had zero quantity at my roots to the purpose the place it seemed like I had a helmet head! I assumed that perhaps I must rinse it out extra subsequent time (although my scalp and hair felt squeaky clear) as a result of it leaves behind a little bit of a residue.
I used No.4 and No.5 on their very own and rinsed it out totally and nonetheless, my hair was tremendous flat even with blowdrying and utilizing the Olaplex Volumizing Dry Mist on the roots (which usually works!).
I used No.4 and No.5 ONLY on the ends of my hair which was higher after blowdrying, however by morning even with sleeping with my hair up in unfastened bun, I had misplaced fairly a little bit of quantity on the roots once more. I caught with this mixture for the subsequent few weeks and simply handled the lower in root quantity even with a thickening cream that I used from root to tip. Then a couple of days in the past, out of behavior I used a leftover little bit of No.5 on my roots and bam I used to be again to hair from Try #1!
The opposite factor I observed when utilizing No.4 and No.5 was that my hair was all the time tangled and slightly tough feeling which was completely the other of what I used to be anticipating from this duo! You haven’t any thought how unhappy I used to be that these didn’t work for me! I switched again to a different shampoo and conditioner final evening (JVN Embody) and instantly I might see a change. I did not even must blow dry my hair and it had quantity on the roots and I used to be in a position to comb by it no drawback.

This has been my go-to previous to curling my hair and I discover it extremely useful in giving my skinny hair some physique!
Closing verdict: Briefly, some stunning revelations for me right here, but additionally the invention of a brand new favorite! I have already got a backup of the numberless Volumizing Blow Dry Mist so that ought to point out to you the way a lot I’ve been having fun with it!
