Just wondering if anyone has any experience with Olaplex? My hairdresser recommends it as i have my hair bleached and have some porous parts, will it help the condition of my hair? help my colour take better?

I haven't had it but I've heard good things about it. No harm trying it.

I love it. Makes a real difference. First time you apply it it does feel a bit funny. My hair felt a bit like cotton wool but when I dried it looked great. I put mine on overnight.

I love Olaplex one and two (the bits your hairdresser uses). Like Olaplex 3 but can't bring myself to pay for it (I'm an insured freelance stylist I have access to salon sized bottles of Olaplex 2 so I use that instead). Not impressed by Olaplex 4 and 5 - the shampoo and conditioner. Never tried 6 and 7 yet but want to.

One and Two are well worth the price, so is three really of you can't get your hands on 2ltr bottles of 2.

I was dubious but when I remember to do it regularly (once a week/fortnight) it definitely improves the condition of my dry yet greasy bleached hair. Stick it on over night.

Olaplex 3 is reasonable on amazon and I use it regularly at home. It's brilliant!

Thanks all, i'm having 1 and 2 at the salon and buying 3 from there to continue so home. Fingers crossed for good results, i love having bleached hair but not how dry it can feel. I know i should buy better shampoo too

I think it's genuinely very good. Really will protect your dyed hair.

timeforawine Thu 13-Feb-20 20:53:58

@Frequency are there any particular shampoos you recommend? My salon is a wella salon so i use their silver shampoo but as yet I've only used l'oreal dream lengths at home

I use 3,4 and 5. Absolute game changer.

Very good! My hairdresser adds it into the colour rather than doing it as a separate treatment and it makes my hair feel lovely afterwards.

Innoluxe is brilliant too. Their leave in conditioner is amazing totally changed my cottony hair to speak and managable luscious locks.

Olaplex at the hairdressers took my hair from being a dry damaged mess to silky and shiny within a few months. I use no 3 at home now once a week to keep the condition, I think it’s brilliant.

I was going to start a thread on opalex!

I read stuff about it and I don't understand it. What do these numbers mean?

Bleubell Thu 13-Feb-20 23:59:47

I use 3,4,5 and 7. Well worth the investment! I've had a full head of bleach 3 times to get to the shade I want and my hair is the healthiest it's ever been due to olaplex.

Probably help if I could spell it blush

I have dry , bleached blonde curly hair and I'm now inspired to buy some olaplex. So is 3 the best to use at home?

GrimDamnFanjo Fri 14-Feb-20 00:52:29

Hmm I didn't know you could buy it outside a salon!

EKGEMS Fri 14-Feb-20 01:18:47

Yes it was amazing how my hair felt afterwards

soberfabulous Fri 14-Feb-20 03:33:04

lexiepuppy 1 and 2 can only be used in a skin. 3 is an intensive mask that you use at home. It's fab!

timeforawine Fri 14-Feb-20 06:28:40

This has been super helpful thank you. I'll see how i get on just using 3 at home after the salon treatment before deciding whether to also buy 4 and 5.
What's 6&7?

@tobee 1 and 2 I believe are there in salon treatment, 3 you buy to continue at home, 4 and 5 are at home shampoo and conditioner. In toying with buying them

Yes I use it at the salon every second/third time I go and have 3,4,5&6 at home I only use 3 every 2 weeks. I do have healthy hair anyway but this has made a difference that nothing else has in the past.

Luckyonetwo Fri 14-Feb-20 06:38:08

7 is a hair oil that you use after washing and drying I will get when other one is all gone 6 is a hair cream that you put in after washing for protection.. well that’s how I use them.

Girlintheframe Fri 14-Feb-20 07:24:26

Sadly it made no difference what so ever to my hair
