I put my hair through the ringer. I color it, tease it, blow-dry it, straighten it, curl it, fill it with products...it's under a lot of stress!
A few years ago, my hair started to get brittle and break. My very fine hair would tangle into impossible knots and just break off in clumps. It was awful. It turns out that I had mild hypothyroid and one of the symptoms is hair damage. I had both my regular stylist and the stylist who did my hair for my wedding, diagnosis the problem before I saw my doctor. Medication has resolved a lot of the dryness, but I still need to be careful.
Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 is a miracle product. My talented stylist, Vanessa, hyped it up for months and as soon as she had Olaplex in the salon, I had to try it.
First, Vanessa applied a highly concentrated treatment of Olaplex in the salon. The results were immediate. Normally, after highlights, Vanessa has a brush full of my damaged hair that has fallen out. Olaplex strengthens the hair and virtually eliminates the breakage. After coloring and an Olaplex treatment, the brush was nearly clean of damaged hair. I left the salon with my hair feeling softer and more pliant than it has been in years, probably since I was a child...you know, when my hair was still all natural.
I bought the at home treatment, the Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3. This is a once-a-week mask that I apply to damp hair. I've been leaving it in for a few hours before shampooing it out. It keeps my hair feeling and looking amazing. My color looks fantastic and there is very little breakage. Truly, this is a game changing hair product.
