    @MileHighDiva, did they say what the ingredient was? I didn't see it in the article. I'm pretty sure Olaplex copyrighted theirs. Maybe they just added a couple R-groups onto the same thing.

    I keep seeing the word fortifier in all of their press stuff. Maybe, it's amino acids.

    @MileHighDiva, that's the problem with these secret miracle hair treatments. You never know if it's a real miracle or a protein treatment. :nono:

    I don't trust my hair to any of this stuff, tempting as it may be. My hair doesn't seem to like even medium strength proteins. And I've seen numerous horror stories related to Olaplex and no real visual proof of any benefits lol.
    My hair does need some assistance now as it's chemically and heat damaged but I'll stick to deep conditioning w/heat , trims, and vitamins.

    I have seen numerous pics of hair "repaired by this product on Instagram. The results are amazing on heat damaged hair. I want to try it to see if it helps my retention.

    She's underwhelmed by the Olaplex. She prefers the Redken CAT Extreme for colored and lightened hair.

    I looked at their Ig a while back and nothing impressed me. I just saw colored/styled hair...
    Most hair can be made to look smooth when styled, even very damaged hair.

    I just started using Redken Anti Snap in March!
    So far so good. I use it on wet hair pre heat styling.

    yup but she has very poor viewership :lol:
    surprisingly poor when you compare to many random everyday folks with yt channels lol.

    her channel features books a lot though so that's probably part of why people arent tuning in.

    I looked at curly hair that was in a wash and go not styled with heat to be made straight. There was a massive difference. This person was severely heat damaged and my recommendation was would been to cut that ish off and start over. This product is a game changer. It essentially reverses damage. Protein only fills in spaces temporarily. I use a hardcore protein 1-2 times a month even though I have healthy hair. I don't just look at their IG I looked at varying hashtags.

    @Britt can give you more details she used it at least 3-5 times, maybe more. Her heat damage is drastically different and she is natural and mostly wears textured styles.

    @Rain20 @southerncitygirl I def see the change in some of my heat damaged areas. I've been using it consistently for about 7-8 weeks and I notice my curls have a bit more bounce back. I've been using it weekly, I wash, apply the Olaplex everywhere and comb it through and leave it on while I run errands, come back, poo it out and then follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.

    I have Olaplex 3 in my hair now. I don't have color, damaged, or chemically treated hair, but heard the at home treatment can give natural curls a boost of life/bounce. Figured it couldn't hurt...except for my pockets lol. I used half the bottle. Not sure if it was over use, but felt it was necessary to work through and cover all my strands.

    ETA: now that the bottle has settled, looks like I used about 1/3 of the bottle. Probably get 2 more uses.

    I've been using Olaplex 3 for approx. 6 weeks. I used 1 & 2 to bleach my hair between the 6 weeks. My hair fall on wash day has decreased by 50%, assuming it's the Olaplex.

    So I bought olaplex #3, and tried it out this past Monday. I started with clarified/chelated hair with ors. Then I applied the oleplex#3. It didn't have a lot of slip, but I didn't need to use a lot of product either. For me it didn't really have a smell.
    They say to leave it in for a min of 30 min. I put on a plastic cap, and accidentally fell asleep. 4 hours later at 230am, I was in the shower rinsing it out. My hair felt kinda hard. I used luv naturals conditioner for a quick 5 min condition. When I got out, my hair still felt kinda hard. Now my hair was WAY over moisturized, so I wasn't alarmed by this.
    I used camilla naturals leave in, and sealed with komaza California butter.
    In the morning my hair was still feeling hard and dry.
    I re-wet it with water and applied a little more camilla and rollerset to stretch my hair for twists.
    When I took out the rollersetting, my hair was smooth and soft. It's been soft since. I feel this is a keeper. You can use it weekly as well, but I will do one more treatment next week, then get back on my moisture/protein rotation.

    I feel my hair got over moisturized bc the protein DC I was using wasn't effective/strong enough combined with overnight dc'ing. I have known that's a no no for me, but I got lazy.

    I bought this from Amazon and used it for the first time Saturday.

    I am relaxed and have demiperm color. My hair sheds/breaks quite a bit. See detangling results before intial shampoo below.


    I coated my hair in 4 sections.using a half dollar amount per the insteuctions. I have SL blunt cut.
    I left this in for about 45 mins. Then washed and conditioned with Joico Color Endure (sulfate free).

    No leavein and rollerset under dryer for 40 mins. Ran some argan oil thru my hair for shine.

    I lost maybe 8 hairs during combout. I will use this weekly. Stay tuned.
