Olaplex No.3, is it worth the hype?

You all know I'm a huge fan of the Olaplex treatment, I've been having it for quite some time now in fact probably around 7 months or so but I have only recently tried out the No.3 at home treatment so thought I'd share with you all what I think of it today and if it's worth the hype it's been getting. 
 

WHAT IS THE OLAPLEX NO. 3 HAIR PERFECTOR?
"Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector is your client’s retail portion of the Olaplex System and contains the same active ingredient as both the No.1 and No. 2. This enables the client to repair and maintain strong, healthy hair in between services as it continues to link bonds within the hair." Olaplex

Olaplex No.3 is an at home treatment that is recommended to use once a week, I have been doing as recommended and apply it to damp hair before washing and leave it on for around 10 minutes and sometimes even longer if I have things to do around the house, it's not a leave in conditioning treatment so always wash it off. My hair is blonde and coloured regularly so I have been after something to give it that extra boost between colours and really give it some life and shine, my hair is also naturally quite wavy and therefore I straighten it a lot so it's constantly got heat on it which isn't great which is why I always opt for Olaplex in the salon. 
 
How my hair has changed since using the No.3 at home treatment is pretty incredible, I have added shine to my hair which I never thought I could achieve and the curl that had almost vanished has bounced back! I can now wear my hair natural without it looking like a frizzy mess, it's definitely down to the Olaplex because I have been using the same styling products throughout and the main difference began when I started No.3 at home so the answer to your question, is Olaplex No.3 worth the hype? Yes it most definitely is, I'd highly recommend it and would suggest giving it a whirl next time you opt for the Olaplex treatment it's definitely an added treat and will really give your hair a new lease of life.

Olaplex Review

 

I thought it was about time I spoke to you all about Olaplex, this is an amazing new upgrade service for hair colouring that you can now get at Steven & Laurent and it's something I'd highly recommend. I have been having this treatment for around 6 months now and I have to say it has completely transformed my hair for the better so let me talk you through what it does and how it can work for you.

 

Olaplex is a single active ingredient which works to repair and reconnect the sulfur bonds broken by the process of permanent hair colouring, it strengthens the hair from the inside out. I have been colouring my hair for the past 10 years and it's been through a lot including bleach on numerous occasions, I'm blonde now and have my hair coloured every 6-8 weeks so as you can imagine it's quite a lot to handle so instead of giving my hair a break for a few months I just have the Olaplex treatment included in my hair appointment and it has really helped with the overall condition and appearance of my hair. 

 

 

Olaplex is a treatment broken up into 3 parts, you can choose to just go for 2 parts or include the additional products which you can use at home to complete part 3. Part 1 is a powder added to your colour, in my case a lightener and it starts to work whilst you colour your hair, part 2 is a treatment applied at the basin once the colour has been washed off and part 3 is a treatment to continue at home which is an intense conditioning treatment and a must have in my opinion even Kim Kardashian loves it “When your hair is really damaged, if you sleep in that, it really works. I notice a huge difference!"

 

If you are looking to give your hair a new lease of life then I'd highly recommend Olaplex, call the salon now to book your treatment and add it to your next appointment you won't be disappointed!
