Who doesn’t want healthy strong hair? I know I certainly do! I am always trying to find new creative ways to help strengthen my hair. I usually try to deep condition weekly, but I’m always open to new treatments. When I searched for good hair treatments, I kept coming across the Olaplex 3 product. Not only did I come across in my google searches, but also from recommendations from other people.
I’m going to dish all about the Olaplex 3 treatment and hopefully help you decide if you want to give it a try!
What is the Olpalex 3 Treatment?
No. 3 Hair Perfector is not a conditioner, it’s an at-home treatment that contains the same active ingredient found in all professional Olaplex products. This formula is made to work with every hair type, providing real, structural repair that works from within.
Unlike many other treatments, you apply this before you shampoo and condition. If i hadn’t actually read the instructions I would’ve gotten this totally wrong! You apply the product to damp hair and and then let it sit for a while (I usually cover it and leave it in for 20 minutes or so) and then wash it out. After you rinse the product out, you continue with the your normal hair washing routine and going into your shampoo and conditioner of choice!
How much is the Olaplex 3 Treatment?
You can get the Olaplex 3 Treatment in the 3.3 oz for $28 from the website or from Sephora like I did! There are also other places that sell it as well. I know some salons use the product and also have it for sale there. I personally have never seen the product on sale but it lasts me a decent amount of time and gives me the results I need so I have no problem investing in it.
Will the Olaplex 3 Treatment work for my hair type?
According to Olaplex, the answer is yes! And I would have to agree. As a black woman with natural hair it works for me and I have read/watched reviews of other people with dyed, straight or fine hair. Olaplex 3 is supposed to be good for all hair types.
This treatment is supposed to work wonders on the damaged, dry and colored hair. Even if you hair is perfectly healthy, it should still give your hair a boost and continue to support your hair being healthy and strong.
Overall review of the Olplex 3 treatment
I loved the product and it has become a staple part of my routine. With natural curly hair, I only wash my hair once a week so I am able to stretch the product a bit. Even though I only use it once a week, I can definitely see the difference in my hair. I love how my hair not only looks but also how it feels.
How exactly does my hair feel? Well, amazing! I have always struggled with dry hair, but sometime ago I got my hair colored – and that blonde really did a number on my hair. This treatment makes my hair feel smooth and silky. It makes my hair much more manageable and I even feel like my curls are stronger after using it.
The product actually has great slip and covers the hair without having to use a ton of it – at least for my hair. I don’t have the thickest hair, but I have some volume. I’ve also noticed that I have had less shedding since I started using the product.
I’m not the biggest fan of having to add another step in my hair care routine but adding this step has been worth it!
