    Hmm, this is new. I will wait to hear some results before I jump on this one though. Whenever I hear Smoothing of any kind, I think Brazilian blowout or relaxer so we shall see how this one works.

    Do you know what it is and how it works yet @nymane?

    Shoot now I want it!
    https://www.allure.com/story/olaplex-no-6-bond-smoother-leave-in-hair-treatment

    I have no. 3 (hair perfector) and no. 5 (conditioner). I will get no. 4 (shampoo) once I use up my current shampoo.

    I want to stick to this line for wash day. I only need to add deep conditioners from other brands.

    Interesting... Did she say why? My hair is not relaxed but it is processed. I went honey blonde... :cry3:hence my need for Olaplex. I did use SM last when I was relaxed. It was awesome.

    How do you use Olaplex, like what steps, how often. Hope you feel better soon!

    I took a gamble on Olaplex to see how it affected my hennindigoed natural hair. It significantly strengthened it. My hair was so weak and lacked elasticity. It feels so strong now! I will use this on a consistent basis

    Yep...Olaplex claims it's a reparative styling cream that eliminates frizz, hydrates, and protects

    I totally agree with you about Olaplex strengthening the hair. It's a total HIT for my hair for sure :yep:.

    I believe it's processed, it's okay. She said that silicon mix tend to sit on the hair and coats it a bit and can end up in breakage eventually.

    Natural hair does not need the silicon as relaxed hair does. She prefers to play it safe and not use it on relaxed hair based on her experience and her knowledge on the Silicon Mix treatment.

    BY the way, thanks for the well wishes. I do feel a ton better now.
