Olaplex No. 3 on Virgin Hair



I'm pretty low maintenance with my hair. I like the idea of styling products and blow outs and fancy shampoos but I tend to try things out for a week and then put my hair goals on the back burner until the next cool product makes my eyes twinkle.

I typically blow-dry my hair at least twice a week and use a round brush to style the front while letting the rest of my hair to what it pleases. IGK has released some products that are a lazy girl's dream so I'm itching to try out their products (Dirty Spray is totally my jam).

Another product that was brought up to me by a friend was Olaplex No. 3. I didn't know anything about it and after doing a little research, it seemed like a one of a kind product and I needed to try it out STAT! The product is said to repair the structure of hair by relinking broken disulfide bonds. Disulfide bonds give your hair elasticity and strength and when they're weakened through chemical processing and heat styling, the hair bends and becomes damaged.

All the reviews I read were done by people with colour treated hair or severe damage but the Olaplex website states that it can be used on virgin hair as well but what would be the benefit of that? I decided I would find out.

According to Olaplex, you should apply a generous amount of product to towel dried hair and if your hair has buildup, you should shampoo first. I may have had some banana puree dried-up in my hair so I decided to shampoo my hair (I shampooed twice actually. A tip from a beauty insta-influencer) and then I applied about a one fifth of the bottle in my hair and I raked my fingers through to get it well dispersed (my hair is currently a little past my shoulders).

Olaplex also says to keep it in for a minimum of 10 minutes but the longer you keep it in the better it will work. Another tip given to me was to wear it overnight. I don't own a shower cap so I tied a plastic bag around my head. I swear. For someone who obsesses over beauty and skincare, I really didn't look the part at that moment. So I slept with a plastic bag on my head with no problems (it was meant to be) and in the morning I shampooed the product out and then used my normal conditioner. After brushing my hair with my beloved Wet Brush, I let it air dry for about an hour.

The first thing I noticed is that my post partum hair regrowth which is mostly around the side of my forehead looked "fluffy" and they're normally flat against my head. I don't know if this is good or bad but I figured I'd find out once I blow dry my hair.

I noticed that blowdrying my hair took less time than usual which is a plus. I used a round brush to set my hair around my face and that also took less time. My hair felt a bit softer and had a more elegant bend and the ends as if I had styled my whole head. I clipped my hair into a bun to avoid going bald by my son and his new found strength. My baby hair at the nape of my neck were tame, straight and soft and they're usually an unruly mess.

So basically the treatment gave me a nicer version of my hair. Some problematic spots, like my frizzy baby hairs, we're smoothed out and my naturally straight hair had a nice bounce to it.

I'm also the type of person who doesn't have nice "next day hair". I have a cowlick that becomes unmanageable overnight, the texture of my hair becomes less desirable and my hair becomes limp and sad. However, after the treatment and a day later, I brushed out my hair and it was still bouncy and soft with nice bends at the ends.

Overall, I think this is an amazing one of a kind product and can transform virgin hair to be a healthier version of itself. However, at $38CAD for only 100mL, it's pretty expensive and time consuming to apply so the people who would most benefit from this product are ones with coarse textured, curly or damaged hair but people will virgin hair will also get beautiful results.
