Anyone and received and tried their No 8 yet? I’ll be getting mine on Monday, I only bought one bottle though I think I’ll be buying another asap because I can see this thing selling outI see Cyn Doll has used it. Her hair looked beautiful.

Mine arrives on Monday as well. Very excited to try it out. I’m going to order the largest size No 5 from Cosmoprof as well.

I got an update that its out for delivery. I will use today and give a review.

I absolutely love the mask! It goes on clear but you can feel that it’s spread nicely. I only used 4.5 pumps for my whole head and that did the trick. My hair is between shoulder and APL so you’d definitely need more for longer hair.

I blow dried with the revair and my hair dried quickly and very soft. It also felt very light and airy. Will be a definite repurchase.

The picture is how much comes out in one pump.

Thanks for this. Did you use No 0 and 3 beforehand? Sounds like such a great cocktail of hair treats.

4.5 pumps, I’ll go through that in no time! I’m going to hope that 2.5/3 pumps work for me. It’ll be interesting to see how long it lasts. I probably won’t use it anymore than twice a month otherwise it’ll be finished too quickly.

I used 1,2,4,5,6,7,8. They are really getting my money. My hair feels so so so good though.

I used three pumps as two wasn’t quite making it. I was going to air dry but I didn’t fancy it so blow dried.

My hair feels very soft and very hydrated right now so it’s a winner so far! Real test will be how my hair feels tomorrow though.
Did you use any other Olaplex products along with the No 8?

Hi everyone! I ordered steps 0 and 3 and want to use for this upcoming wash day.

I wear my hair in a wash and go with gel. Should I really apply the 0 to dry hair over all this product? Or should I rinse my hair first and towel dry, and then go in with 0 followed by 3?

thank you!

Mines says it was delivered but errr-ruh.... I didn’t receive it yet. (I think the post man has it held up until a locker opens up)

I think Olaplex works best with fairly clean hair so if your hair has gel in it, it’s probably best to cleanse first, dry then apply 0, followed by 3. It’s a bit long-winded yes but I think you’ll get a better result from the product.

I know you have way more hair then me lol but I think they are being conservative with just 3 uses. Or maybe I'm not using enough because I've used it three times and it's maybe just a quarter way gone.
That’s why I want to use it on wet hair! Applying on my dry hair as it is right now seems like a waste of product! Good to know you’re getting a lot of uses.

Thank you! I use botanical products and no silicones so it should be fairly product free after a thorough rinse. I’ll shampoo after I rinse out step 3.

I used no. 8 last night. It stayed on a for an hour or two while I was doing other stuff.

I liked it. It was thicker and spread easier than I expected. I used 2 1/2 or so pumps. The first pump didn't seem like a full one and then I did another pump to make sure that I covered the crown area.

Now it did not have slip right away. No detangling happening. It did have more slip after sitting on my hair for a bit, and I was able to detangle with it.

I'll rotate it with a traditional deep conditioner that has more slip.

I underestimated how good No 0 is. After consistently using it for several months now I can see how it amplifies the results of No 3. After really assessing my hair, it is so much more manageable than before. It feels a little smoother and wash days just seem easier. My hair stays hydrated for days post wash and I never really had that before; I can only really pin point the change to the No 0. I’ve just ordered two more bottles.

I really love that mask too.

After looking up the Steps 1 and 2 and steps 0 and 3, I realize they are the same. Steps 1 and 2 is the professional version of steps 0 and 3. I realized this after comparing their ingredients. I already have the 1 and 2 and don't think I will be needing the 0 and 3. The only reason I will get step 0 is because I want that bottle. Weird, I know but I want it. I actually have a 17 oz bottle of step 1 and a 67oz bottle of step 2. I'm good with those for now. However, I need to try step 6 and 7 so I will add those 2 to my Olaplex list to purchase. I may or may not try the mask (step 8) - I have not decided yet.
