On my year’s journey to starting to feel more like myself, I have hated my hair for months. After many months of bleaching my hair and dying it various colors, my hair was getting shorter and shorter. And not feeling healthy. It was more the bleaching than the dying that royally killed my hair. When I finally decided to no longer have red hair, after three bleach sessions my hair was crispy and chemically shortened. I cut it short hoping that would help in the regrowth process which did help it feel better. But I needed to fix it at the root level. So to do this I decided to try out Olapex No. 3 with so many YouTubers swore by.
One bottle of Olapex No. 3 is $28, and works as a bonding agent that puts back together your hair to be stronger and structurally sound. Which is exactly what I need. According to their website, the only true source online to purchase that product is from their website.
How to Use
- Apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair and comb through (you can also apply to completely dry hair, although it might take more product). If your hair contains oil or silicone buildup, you will also need to shampoo beforehand.
- The longer No.3 remains in place, the more effective its results will be. As such, be sure to keep it in your hair for at least 10 minutes, or 20 minutes if your hair is compromised.
- Rinse, shampoo, condition, and style per your normal routine. Again, the website emphasizes that it’s not a conditioner and must be shampooed out.
Thoughts on Olapex
I’ve been using Olapex No. 3 since January and I have noticed my hair is stronger. With little to no split ends. My hair has also grown quite a bit since I started using it. It’s not any sort of crazy growth but I’ve only been using it for two months with application every second week. Which has already made a huge difference. Considering my hair was shrinking rather than growing, I’m over the moon about it. Granted not bleaching my hair and going with natural colors has helped a lot with this. Along with not doing the same hair style every single day has done a lot as well. Another thing I love since starting this is my hair feels nice for a long time even between sessions. Which normally doesn’t happen with other treatments. So overall, I really love this product! And will be continuing to use this product in my journey to bring my hair back to life.
