The Color Chronicles: Olaplex No. 3 First Impression

olaplex

What’s up, curl homies? My hair has been blonde for about a week now, and while I haven’t noticed any visible damage, I have been concentrating on preventative measures – mainly focusing on my moisture/protein balance, as well as using a toning conditioner that I love (Tigi Catwalk Fashionista Violet Conditioner – but that’s another review!). But still, I know that damage and breakage can pop up over time with bleach, and I didn’t want to risk it. I read about Olaplex awhile back and a stylist recommended that I get a treatment on my Facebook page. I mean, I did leave bleach on my hair for an hour and a half. That can’t be good for Izzy.

So basically, Olaplex is a bond multiplier that reconnects/mimics the disulfide bonds in your hair that are broken during chemical treatments. As a result, breakage and damage are significantly decreased. Sounds like a magic gift from the hair universe for dye heads, right? Olaplex is a three part system (No. 1, 2, and 3) РNo. 1 is is Bond Multiplier and mixed with your bleach, No. 2 is the Bond Perfector and applied after your process and links the remaining disulfide bonds in the hair, and No. 3 is the take-home retail version of the system (No. 1 & 2) and meant to be used once a week or more if your hair is severely damaged.
