Olaplex hair care is turning my hair goals into success.
I struggled with my hair care up until now. I saw my friend using it and I immediately wanted to try it because it made her hair look so nice and healthy.
I use their shampoos and conditioners, their bonding oil, and their hair mask. They have numbers for certain hair goals and it didn't take me long to find the right one for me. On the website they have description on their products and what numbers do the best for you. This can lead you do find the type of hair care your hair needs.
I'm a bright blonde so it is tricky to find the right products to keep that color. Olaplex doesn't make my color last any less. So for people who have colored hair and worry about it this is for you. Before the using this line my hair color only lasted about 3 weeks. This is such a fast fade. After using the products my hair has kept up with the color and had lasted longer than 3 weeks. I consistently use their purple shampoo once a week.Other shampoos and conditioners fade my bright blonde hair. This was so frustrating because then I would have to go back for so many more appointments then I needed. Olaplex keeps my hair bright blonde and maintains it.
Although they are expensive and come in medium sized bottles I think they are still worth it. The shampoo and conditioner are 30 dollars each. This isn't so bad because you get away with using just little blobs that goes a long way. The shampoo is number 4 and the conditioner is number 5.
The next product I use is the number 8 bond intense moisture mask. This mask sits in my damp hair for 10 mins. After that I go back in with my shampoo and conditioner. This makes my hair styleable and has more body. This keeps my hair shiny, smooth, and healthy.
This product is also 30 dollars. I think this price might be a little much because it comes in a smaller bottle. But in the end process it is giving you what you are looking for. I usually use this hair mask once a week. I try to use it at the beginning of the week to get it prepped for the week full of styling.
The next product I use is the bonding oil. This product is made for dry or wet hair. It is a heat protectant, detangler, enhances shine, and reduces frizz. For me this product met all the criteria. The bonding oil number is 7. The smell of this product is great.
I mainly use this product when I get out of the shower to help detangle my hair and keep the frizz away for the morning. This keeps me waking up with my hair staying shiny. I also use it when I'm about to style my hair when it is dry. I only put it on my ends and then I continue to style my hair and apply heat.
Now this product is also 30 dollars. I think this one is way overpriced because it is a super tiny container. Especially if you use it every single night.
My hair before has been rough. Split ends after split ends, dry hair, and washing it constantly. My hair has always had terrible split ends and it was so hard for me to figure out why. After trying so many different products I finally feel like I found what helps me the most.
Since I get my hair dyed and style it so often it does go through a lot of damage. Continuing sports as well makes it hard for me to not wash it as much so it doesn't get as dry. Bur after finding what I needed this is perfect.
But overall I think the brand is perfect for people who need this type of hair care. It is also great because their line is made for every hair type, it just depends on the condition of your hair.
My hair is down to my butt and curly and was super soft but I had gotten a gift card to a salon so I figured I would get my hair done and I got highlights for the first time in 3 years. First time ever professionally. So I figured I would buy this to be super careful with my hair because I try to be careful. Things like this make me glad to be poorer but it's also why I'm so upset and don't understand how this isn't happening to everyone like maybe they aren't realizing it? I don't know. I hadn't even died my hair for like the last year. It made my hair so dry feeling and difficult to manage. This stuff made my hair fall out really badly and a couple months prior I had already experienced COVID hair loss so wasn't sure why it would start again but it was absolutely this product. I never knew how difficult it could be to brush my hair. This is disturbing. It's ironic because another product did this to me recently as well Differen (Adapalene) it caused damage to my skin that made it far worse than before which is ironic and really disturbing. I was told it would purge so I thought it was normal but I don't trust that anymore at all. Why this is only happening to some people I have no idea. Just a heads up. This is disturbing. Also the smell is bad like a cleaner. If this isn't meant for brown hair they shouldn't act like it is I'm not sure if that's what it is but I also think people aren't realizing this is causing damage I didn't realize fit for a couple months like I had suspicions and then fully realized 5 months later after I bought it I just really didn't want to believe it but it is absolutely this product. This is just such a joke and it's not okay. Like this isn't cheap stuff. They basically stole money and then made me lose a ton of hair? This stuff has something very wrong going in the ingredients and it's crazy this doesn't happen to everyone it made my hair SO stretchy and literally break off I don't know how people don't realize it like I said if it's not really meant to be used on brown highlighted hair they need to address that. I've lost so much hair. I'm going to do minoxidil that's how thin it is so hopefully it helps and future me thanks me. They say it helps with mechanical damage which is so so ironic. This was so so bad. I don't know what's wrong here but it really is that bad so something went wrong maybe in manufacturing? I'm not sure but it's bad. I'll send the rest of my bottle if they want to test it because this isn't right something went seriously wrong. A lot of people are making TikTok's about it making them lose their hair. My hair line has moved back and pieces broke off from my hairline and my hair is so frizzy because it's so broken off. It feels like I bleached my whole head several several times and I know because I have done before as a teenager and had rebuilt my hair for this to do this to me by just using this conditioner and getting highlights ONE TIME. I hadn't used any bleach like I said in almost four years and hasn't died in over a year. Also I only used the conditioner from the Olaplex line one bottle and it was this bad.

I have naturally long, curly, THICK hair. I got recommended this product and decided to give it a try. I have NEVER had any hair product that completely destroyed my hair and caused major scalp problems like Olaplex did. I used it for around 2-3 months maybe once every week (if not less) and it caused blisters on my scalp and balding!! I do NOT recommend and please be careful if you are using it.

My hair broke off in random sections!
First and foremost for those who doubt it, I stopped using it and within a week my hair stopped breaking and I am now in Recovery mode. It was Olaplex. I used only the entire line of olaplex for my hair, and same styling products I always did. I am so mad that I didn't realize it was Olaplex. Just remember, it started out great.. but in about 7-8 months, my hair was breaking all over. Don't let it happen to you!

I hope my hair will recover one day soon.

I have used this shampoo and conditioner combination 2 times so far, and I do not notice any difference in my hair ):

I purchased this product from my hair stylist. After wanting to try this out for years, I was thrilled when my stylist had this, so I bought it. I cannot write a review, but this product did not sit right. I used Monat and bondiboost, and I loved them. When I got my hair done, my stylist (which I love) said it was dry, so I figured they knew best. What do I know? I purchased it in October, and I am not a fan at all. I hate how my hair feels. It feels like straw, very, very dry. I have gone blonde, and it feels bleach dry, and its been years since I have gone blonde.
This is not meant for everyone or hair type, and that is okay don't be pushed into buying this product by the hype or hairstylist. If you want to try it out purchase the smallest package or ounce do not invest until you try it out.

Okay, based on the reviews it seems like some people have been using this incorrectly. With a high protein shampoo and conditioner, you should use it MAX once a week. If your hair is thin or fine, you should use it even less than that. It should be used as an aid to help with damaged or frizzy hair, not as a regular shampoo and conditioner. (This is what my hairdresser told me. If you use too much protein in your hair products/ routine, you will overload your hair making it brittle and easily snapped/ frayed). I can tell a difference in the strength of my hair, but yes it is expensive.
Dars from Los Angeles
bought this because olaplex is always talked about in all aspects to revive damaged hair.
Have been using for about 3 months now, and found that I was loosing more and more hair every time after using, so sad because I had already used more than half. didn't want to risk more hair loss so I stopped using. first and last time using olaplex brand for hair.
could be a different result for someone else's hair type but with my thick curly hair this product I cannot recommend.

I have naturally thick dried hair and once i bleached my hair I noticed a huge change. My hair went from coarse to silky smooth thanks to using steps 3,4C,5 and 8!
DAVID from Peoria Az
Great product works great with my hair I would recommend to my friends even though it's more expensive product
Rae from Ohio
I experienced a ton of hair loss and breakage after using this regularly. I've had bleached hair for almost 20 years and it was always pretty healthy but this brand is meant for damaged hair not every day use. Lesson learned the hard way for me

This product made me lose my hair, I used it like 3 times, stopped using it a month ago and my hair stills falls out. There is a lawsuits about it.
Chanel from Chicago
It made my hair thinner. No difference in my hair after using it for 6 months.
Melissa from Mason, Mi
I'm joining the class action lawsuit now that I've realized Olaplex may be to blame for the deterioration of my hair over the past several months. I started using Olaplex to tame a few flyaways and some minor breakage and my hair has done nothing but deteriorate since. Pieces break off every time time I brush my hair. Stylists at every salon I've ever gone to have commented on how healthy my hair was, until now. I have not had COVID and cannot come up with any other idea as to what may have turned my healthy and shiny hair into this rats nest.

I have used just about every product in the line and it's great at first. But after a few months it made my hair feel dry. I went back to redken and my hair feels

Use at extreme discretion.

This product caused my hair to break off a couple inches from the scalp. Also experienced scabs, flaking and itching. I would not recommend any Olaplex products.
Susan from Vacaville, CA
I use the No. 4 Shampoo and this conditioner. The shampoo is so conditioning that it takes very little conditioner on my course hair. I've used these products for about two years and found they really improved my hair and it's thickness. I've not tried any other brands since using this.
Stitch from Los Angeles, ca
This product made my hair worse than better. This is horrible. I ended up with dry hair and ended up getting a bald spot which I never got before. Do avoid this product.
A from Michigan
I used to love Olaplex, but something has changed in the formulation. I started having hair breakage for no reason. There is a huge online community of people who have had negative experiences with Olaplex. I would not recommend using this product.
Patricia from Michigan
I really like how soft this conditioner makes my hair feel.
