Do you use heat or dye your hair, or do you just feel like it’s feeling rather limp and weak at the moment?

There are lots of different treatments that you can do at home to treat your hair – from strengthening protein treatments, to moisturising masks.

But we’d like to introduce you to Olaplex No 3 Hair Perfector – this is something a little different and also very special – it is a bond builder.

Of course, this can’t work miracles and sometimes the best thing you can do for particularly frazzled hair is getting a trim, but if your hair is damaged, one thing you can look into doing is an Olaplex treatment to help build up your hair again and help strengthen it against future damage.

How it works

Starring a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level, Olaplex formulas seek out broken bonds in the hair (which are caused by chemical, thermal and mechanical damage) and repair them, restoring compromised hair to former glory.

The star ingredient is bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate to strength and repair your hair.

How to use

Apply to damp hair, leave it on for a minimum of 10 minutes before washing as normal, or leave on overnight.

I also like to put this on my hair in the early evening, then wrap my hair and leave it overnight, washing it out in the morning.

If you’re thinking about straightening your hair for example (which I do, once every few years) one thing you can do to give your hair the best chance to avoid damage to the hair, is apply an Olaplex No 3 treatment the night before you plan to straighten your hair. In the morning, wash your hair as usual and then style your hair.

You can even use it as a leave-in product. Please note that it is NOT a conditioner and does not replace a conditioner or any other protein or moisture treatments. It is a bond-building treatment.

The Effect

This fabulous Olaplex No 3 has an instant effect on the hair. Even after one use, my hair feels stronger – less frizzy and shinier too. I have curly, highlighted hair and since using the product, I feel like my bleached highlights don’t look as damaged – and it’s helped to strengthen the hairs that have been damaged. They don’t look like frizzy straw alongside the rest of my hair anymore and the curl is protected!

You can use this as a weekly product to keep your hair strong and lush.

Even if you don’t dye your hair or heat style it – it’s a great additional product to include in your rotation if your hair is feeling weak and needs a bit of strengthening.
