My hair is currently in the best condition that it has been in for a long, long time. It has finally left the dark side and become more silky, shiny and manageable. I am a former bleach junkie, curling iron addict, flat iron devotee and the poster child for all around hair barbarity.
In my quest for a hair reset, I was able to go from a walking advertisement of "what not to do to your hair" to family, friends and even strangers asking me what I use on my hair. Talk about a turn around!
I was able to achieve hair health (and self-respect) back by
1. my amazing hair stylist, Georgie, who I sometimes love more than my first born,
2. using Kerastase shampoo and hair masks,
3. minimizing the use hot tools
and 4. Olaplex No. 3.
So, my question to you is, do you Olaplex?
If you color your hair and your answer is "No", drop everything you are doingand head to Pastels Salon in Umm Sequeim and buy yourself a bottle! I'm serious...hop in your car right now and start driving!
What exactly is Olaplex?
Olaplex No. 3 (150aed, Pastels Salon) is a revolutionary hair treatment that locates and restores damaged disulfide bonds (the bonds that make your hair pliable and healthy) within your hair that have suffered chemical, thermal or mechanical damage.
What does that mean?
It means that all the damage you do to your hair, the coloring, flat irons (I know you use them- don't deny it!), the constant yanking, twisting, pulling, tying it up, and brushing it out can be minimized with a weekly Olaplex treatment!
How to use:
Olaplex No. 3 is used at home, once a week between salon visits. To use, apply Olaplex on damp hair, brush it through and throw your hair into a bun. Make sure you apply enough that every strand of hair is saturated. I usually apply a 2-3 dirham sized amount because I have long hair. If your hair feels slippery, you know you have applied enough! Sleep with the treatment in your hair and in the morning shampoo and condition as normal.
You will not believe how amazingly soft and silky your hair will be! The treatment helps keep your hair strong and healthy and you can even use it if you do not color your hair. Once you try this product, you will be hooked. It is truly a miracle product!
