Loved by hair stylists, beauty experts and consumer alike, Olaplex is one of those brands that has soared to cult status for all the right reasons.
With its patented formula that helps to mend the damage done by heat and colouring by repairing bonds to leave hair stronger and healthier, Olaplex is found in the bathroom cabinets of everyone from celebrities to industry insiders.
While there are eight products in the Olaplex arsenal in total (two of which are strictly in-salon treatments only), one product in particular is frequently claimed to be a ‘miracle treatment’ and has amassed over 70,000 reviews on Amazon (89 per cent of which are 4-5 star rated).
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector is the brand’s global bestseller and an Amazon bestseller, too. An at-home treatment that reduces breakage and visibly strengthens hair, it restores hair’s healthy appearance and texture by repairing damage and protecting hair structure.
Designed to be used on all hair types, but specifically damaged hair (whether that’s from heat, colouring or waiting too long between hair cuts – thanks lockdown), just use once a week on damp hair before shampooing, leave for 10 minutes then rinse out and wash hair as normal.
While it gets to work fast and shows results after just one use, sustained use continues to improve hair texture and quality use after use, resulting in soft, shiny and healthy-looking hair.
The reviews say it all, really: ‘I am absolutely stunned at the difference in my hair after only one use. My hair is soft and shiny and no more breakage,’ wrote one customer. Another wrote: ‘I’d give this product 10 stars if I could. Would highly recommend if you want to stop split ends, or have dry hair that needs extra support.’
At £32 a bottle, it’s not the cheapest product on the shelf, which is why we were more than a bit excited to discover that it’s currently on offer on Amazon for just £20.34 – that’s a 36 per cent saving and makes the cost per use far easier to justify.
