Most Helpful Positive Review No. 3,5,6
I use Olaplex 3,5,6. My hair was fried and read, 14 years of straightening it on 230 degrees everyday and aged 24 my hair was uneven, falling out, and my natural curls were fried. I'd worn extensions for 2 years prior to this to try and hide the damage which ‚Äòspoiler alert' only damaged or more. Then I got clip in extensions after my bonded ones came out and this continued to pull, break and damage my hair which was once waist length curly and beautiful. In March last year when we went into lockdown I decided to ditch the ghd's, cut the dead ends off (I cried in my bedroom when I realised my hair was so damaged I was left with a Bob) and I only washed my hair once every 2 weeks and very very very slowly my natural curls started to vaguely reappear. I started using Olaplex 2 months ago and my my hair is thicker, shinier, I now do a little trim for the ends every 6 weeks (I hadn't had it cut For 4 years before lockdown). When you notice that little bit of growth when your hair hasn't grown in years, to then cut it is hard but I now know it's a necessity. Olaplex is a god send, but as well as this I won't deny I have put a lot of work and care into my hair. I wouldn't have just been able to put no. 3 on my hair this time Last year and it would be fine, but the combination of hard work and Olaplex has made a huge difference. No other hair product (and I can assure you I have tried Every. Single. One. nearly compares. So thank you Olaplex for giving my hair a new lease of life!
Most Helpful Critical Review Really wanted to love this
I really really really wanted to love olaplex. I had high hopes and planned to use it for a long time. Unfortunately it makes my scalp itch and flake like crazy. I also bought the shampoo and conditioner to use along with number 3. For the first week I used it 3 times since my hair is pretty damaged. I could feel my hair becoming super soft. The first two times I let it air dry and it dried to a beautiful frizz free wave which I loved. My hair was still pretty silky after it was dry. However the third time I used it I decided to blow dry and curl my hair. My hair felt stronger during the blow dry and I wasn't seeing all of the breakage I usually do. Although after I curled my hair all the softness and shine disappeared. It felt dry and damaged again. I was disappointed since I had heard so many great reviews about it looking and feeling stronger after styling. I will continue to use the rest of the products because they were pretty pricey and because I am still hoping for a miracle. Just don't get your hopes up too night. Before I purchased olaplex I spent a good amount of time researching it, reading reviews, and watching how to videos.

This product is amazing! I naturally have straight, ashy dark brown hair, but after bleaching so much, it it was so dry and straw like. I was so hesitant to buy this at first because it was such a tiny bottle for the price but I'm glad I did. I only have used it once and it has already made my hair silky and smooth. I didn't use it as directed, I washed my hair first to get all the product build up out of my hair, then used this then conditioner. I'm a dedicated Olaplex user now!!
Nana from Rome ga
I use this before I wash my hair. Put it on damp hair for 10 minutes at least then wash with the shampoo and conditioner
NOT for women of color
Hopeful from Ohio
OLAPLEX... you have my permission to label this product, NOT for women of color, and I can promise you no one's going to be upset.
I literally spent 35 minutes trying to detangle my hair after using this system. I even tried my holy grail(Super Skinny) over it to help, and that didn't even help. My hair is thick and a little past my shoulders, I even have a perm which aids in detangling considerably, but this stuff is definitely for better hair than mines. It caused a lot of breakage because my hair was so tangled on my head.
I'm not going to say this is a bad product, but I'm going to definitely say it's not for me!!!
Best stuff ever!
Sammi from Rhode Island
It is a little small for the price for my own liking, however I will buy this again once I run out. My hair has never felt so soft !!
G from Mn
Was hesitant to like this at first because right out of the shower I thought my hair felt weird .... give it over night before judging! My hair feels softer, healthier, and this helped tame a lot of the breakage I had halfway down. Definitely going to buy again
I will buy this product again and again!

This is the best hair product I have ever tried, and I have tried several throughout the years!!
Buy this NOW
caliii from Pennsylvania
I have naturally curly hair, but after years of bleaching and heat damage my curls have been completely compromised. After just one use my curls looked better than they gave in years. My hair is also noticeable healthier and softer due to this product
caseymegzz from Maryland
I saw so much improvement in my hair after just the first use. My hair feels softer and healthier. You only need to use it once a week and make sure to leave it in for the recommended 10 minutes.
redefined my hair

I've been sleeping with this each night before wash day. it has transformed my hair from weak and brittle to strong and thicker. I have fine thin hair that I highlight to camouflage grey's.

The jury is still out!

I've only tried Oleplex #3 once so far, but I really see no difference in my hair yet. I'll have to try it again.
THE BEST if you use correctly
Jess from Miami
You should not use this product more than once a week and even then I would recommend once every 2 weeks. Everyone in the reviews complaining about damaged hair have 1 thing in common, they use these products more than once a week. YOU ARE GOING TO OVER SATURATE YOUR HAIR. These products are use to repair with intense formulation. If you overdo it you will cause more harm than anything.
This is the best thing I have used for my over processed hair that has gone through box dye, salon bleach, keratin treatments, etc. My hair has gone thru the worst and intense breakage. My hair stylist recommended this product but emphasized on not over using it (yes even the shampoo shouldn't be used more than once a week max). These products alongside k18 every 2 weeks (I use olaplex biweekly and k18 the weeks I don't use olaplex) my hair has been repairing itself and all the intense breakage I had has been looking more manageable and less noticeable.
PLEASE TALK TO A PROFESSIONAL FOR INSTRUCTIONS BASED OFF OF YOUR HAIR AND GOALS. These are still professional products and can cause damage if used incorrectly which most people do. I used to do that and never again will I make that mistake again
I would buy this product again.
Walker from NY
I use this product weekly.
DEFINITELY BUYING AGAIN
JoJo from Pearl River, NY
My hair can use all the help it can get. After the very first use, my hair was silky and I had a really great hair day. I was getting my hair cut the next day, and my stylist told me they use it for their clients that get highlights, because it really helps limit the damage the bleaching does. She told me it is an excellent line and that my hair looked especially healthy (despite having waited WAY too long to get my hair trimmed:)
Also, an absolute MUST for me is that a company is completely cruelty free. If they aren't 100% cruelty free, I don't care how good the product is, I will not buy it. Thankfully Olaplaex holds the same values as I do.
No one has to be hurt for me to have healthy hair. Try it!
Not worth price
Sev from CT
Bought this product as a frizz control but it smells so bad I don't even want to use it. It is also somewhat sticky.

Hair so soft from Ulta
I used this product overnight and my hair felt so soft and healthy the next morning. I will continue using Olaplex as my hairstylist has instructed me to.
AMAZING, TERRIFIC, BUY IT NOW!
Olaplex is life from Yorba Linda, CA
I never knew why I thought olaplex was terrible. Or I thought your hair had to be really messed up to use it. I had blonde streaks about 2 years ago and I regret it and realized I love my natural dark brown. I stopped heat damaging at the start of 2020 and my hair has gone through a process and I want my hair to be SUPER longer but look nice. I saw this came out and decide why not and decided getting 0 and 3 would be a good start and WOW I see no split ends that I saw previously. And those little white dots you see on the tip of your hair from breakage I don't see that neither! I think this will be game changing on my growth journey!! LOVE get it you will have no regrets worth every cent < 3
Amazing for my bleached, curly, frizzy hair
Carabug from Florida
Oh my gosh. I didn't expect it to be THIS good. I bleached my hair 3 weeks ago and it went really well. The color came out nicely and the toner landed me at a beautiful color. No breakage, but my curly hair been extra knotted and it had a slight straw feeling to it. Yesterday, I left no. 3 on for about an hour then washed/conditioned like normal. And oh my gosh. My hair is aaalmost silky smooth. It didn't fight me to straighten and it looks extra lovely. I'm very happy with this product!
Works for me !
Vane from Riverside CA
I love the way this makes my hair feel. I use it once a week and with one squeeze it works for my hair. My hair feels soft and smooth after this. Great product!
Devon from California
I used this together with No.0 as recommended and saw results immediately after use. I went straight back to my Ulta store and purchased the shampoo and conditioner. This is a product that works as advertised! I highly recommend trying it!
Saved My Hair
Emiller from Maryland
This mask truly saved my hair!!! I was put on a medication that made my hair super brittle in areas and made my hair start thinning. My hairdresser recommended this mask and for approximately the past 2-3 years I've been using No.3 and can't rave about it enough!!
