This is Reema and this is my very first review on IMBB, so I am super excited 🙂 Today, I am going to review Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3 for you. From the past few years, I am doing permanent straightening on my hair and as an obvious aftermath, I am suffering from severe hair fall, hair thinning, and split hair. But since the feeling of smooth and silky hair is so irresistible, every once in 5 months, I end up going through the straightening process again 😛 So, in order to keep the health and volume of my chemically-damaged hair, I have tried so many kinds of spa products and home remedies, but none of them helped me. Around 4 months ago, I came across Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 (which is for home use whereas No. 1 and No. 2 are for salon use). Read on further to find out whether it helped my chemically-treated hair or not.
No.3 Hair Perfector is not a conditioner. No.3 is at home bond builder that contains the same active ingredient found in all professional Olaplex products. The patented technology relinks the broken disulfide bonds in every type of hair providing real, structural repair that works from within. It promises to repair and heal, chemically treated /damaged hair at home.

Directions To Use:
Step 1: Apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair and comb through.
Step 2: Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes. Keep in mind, the longer it’s on, the more effective it is, especially for hair that is compromised. We’ve seen great results from people who leave it on 30 to 90 minutes!
Step 3: Rinse, shampoo and condition. Remember, this is NOT a conditioning treatment OR a leave-in treatment. It is meant to be shampooed out of the hair and followed up with your regular shampoo/condition regimen.
My Experience with Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3:
It comes in a classic small white bottle of 3.3 oz. I like the packaging, its small, tightly capped and thus travel friendly.
I am almost using it for last four months now, once in a week. I leave it on my hair for almost two to three hours and the result is so good. My stylist mentioned that it can be left overnight, but I haven’t tried it yet. This is one product which really proves to be effective on my chemically damaged hair. After the very first use, I found my hair strands looking a bit thicker and healthier. After using it for more than a month, my hair has transformed a lot. It looks a lot thicker, almost like before I had opted for chemical straightening. Before using this product, my hair was splitting from the middle and had become very brittle, but after this product, my hair is growing well. I would recommend you guys to buy this product.
Pros of Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3:
- It stands to the claim of making hair strong.
- It stops split ends and breaking of hair from middle.
- It can be used with any shampoo and conditioner of your choice.
- It makes hair silky.
- Hair looks thicker.
Cons of Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3:
- The price is a bit high.
- Availability is an issue (available only at salon or online).
